Like the title of your "rank" (Newbie ... Frosh ... Soph ... Cum Laude ... Togo's Troops ... etc ) Stars are lnked to the number of posts you've made:
Highest level is currently for Reaching 5000 Posts, which puts you in the Kaftan MOP Circle and earns 10 Stars. Though there is an option to award different colored stars, all stars on out board are purple because, once you have purple, there is no need for any other color!
If anyone is really interested, I'll post the full table of ranks & stars when I have some time.
Is there a way to recognize quality as well as quantity?? e.g. # of 'likes' or 'dislikes' or 'quoted'
The data is there under profile, notifications for yourself. I expect it could be compiled
How about a notification %... # of notifications / # of posts... as a rough indication of quality? Maybe the stars are based on this % but don't kick in until a significant # [500?] of posts have been made...
So you think quality is determined by a poll of one's peers. A very telling attitude. This approach certainly puts a premium on Correctness. If you don't understand that, then you've never understood what "Political Correctness" means.

A poster rating system?? Seriously? Some of us still have day jobs.
Don't expect any analytics (advanced or otherwise) on posters vis a vis likes & dislikes. Only thing you'll see is number of posts. And quality of a post is in the eye of the reader and posting that type of information makes it too easy for folks to pick on a dissenter and skew the metrics against one or two posters. Don't want to go there and is the reason we don't display the total number of likes and dislikes posters have accumulated.
