    It's basically just a way to say thank you. When someone posts something that you think is particularly helpful or otherwise of value, you can leave them a little note saying so by clicking on the star under their name. Yeah, the points accumulate and folks with more points have more green boxes, but that's really beside the point as far as I'm concerned. Personally, I just like the ability to let folks know that I appreciated what they had to share, and it's a convenient way of doing so.

    Tyler, you should listen to Vince; he knows much more about that stuff than me. At least, that's what he told me, and I believe him.

    Now if you want to know more about less advanced topics, like the Internet, using smilies ( <---) or spelling words correctly, then come to me.

    True story, except the part about the evil. Brian only does this in the case of extreme necessity when nothing else works and he must do so. That's what I've heard, anyway; because I have no real personal experience with this thing that we speak of....
