Thanks Heaps pixieCat and CathyJane for the welcome.

Could anyone help me?  I have been trying to find out how to give stars and other general board information.
Someone (please forgive me, I forgot who) said that there is a button under the persons name.  I can't seem to find that.
Perhaps, being a newbie, I am unable to give stars?  That's OK, I just want to know.

If someone could point me to the correct thread where the explainations are, I would be most greatful. I am usually pretty good at researching information.  So I was reluctant and rather embarrassed to ask.

Thank you,
LL

Below the name, member status and the status stars (which come automatically depending on your number of posts) on the left of each post, you see the word "Reputation:" and a number. This is the actual number of "stars" = reputation points a poster has.

To "give" a star to a poster, just click the link Add below the Reputation line.

You may do that without actually pointing it out openly, clicking on "Add" will just add one rep point to the totals this poster has.

But usually, posters here point out that they "gave" a reputation point by posting the star smiley  Star together with a small explanation.

AFAIK, giving reputation points is limited to one  Star in 24 hours per poster. This is why you will sometimes find posts like "a  Star in 24" or " Star when time allows" (heck, to figure that out took me MONTHS ...).

Thank you, Kaiserin  for the speedy reply.  Unfortunately, I am not seeing the link Add below the reputation line.
This is why I thought that newbies can't give stars until a certain number of posts have been made.
I will keep looking for the elusive button.  Until then, I will just have to show my appreciation with words.
Thank you again.

It's possible that the function was "opened" for you once you hit 10 posts.

Most forums operate the same way, and "privileges" or "functions" become available depending on how a forum is run (all have their own rules), but generally accounts have to be X old and/ or have posted X posts until new or certain functions and features open up!

Thanks Olya, I'm going to go with your explaination.  I would hate to think I was THAT unobservant! 
Truly, I didn't see it before.  So glad I can now.

Hello all!

I have lurked, on and off, since the time the Cambridges tied the knot. I particularly appreciate how the forum manages to be informative, funny & amusing about royalties without either being cloying or bitter, and long may it remain that way!

Hi everyone, I've been a long-time lurker on this board and have finally decided to join! I love how witty and easygoing everyone here is, especially when it comes to criticism and differing opinions, so I guess I might feel quite comfortable voicing my thoughts here. Hello!

Hi everyone! I am actually not a new poster (just a new username because I forgot my old password and the email I used to set up my previous account).

But it's good to be back!
