So when I initially developed the whole stars thing for reviews, I stopped at five red stars for 1250 reviews. I could've gone beyond that, but I figured not many people would ever reach that much. I was right. To date, only four people have: Snoink (2377), Suzanne(1882), Kitty15 (1422), and Sam (1258).

But I was wrong in how far above and beyond one person in particular, Snoink, would go. She picked up a ton more reviews and is currently at almost double the 1250 review max. For a couple years, she's been bugging me to create more stars. I never did, so she went ahead and did it herself a month ago. So now, there are four new colors!

Here are the new star reviews rankings:

For Yellow Stars:
    5 Reviews = 1 Star
    25 Reviews = 2 Stars
    75 Reviews = 3 Stars
    150 Reviews = 4 Stars
    250 Reviews = 5 Stars

For Blue Stars:
    350 Reviews = 1 Blue Star, 4 Yellow Stars
    450 Reviews = 2 Blue Stars, 3 Yellow Stars
    550 Reviews = 3 Blue Stars, 2 Yellow Stars
    And so on and so forth

For Red Stars:
    850 Reviews = 1 Red Star, 4 Blue Stars
    950 Reviews = 2 Red Stars, 3 Blue Stars
    And so on and so forth

For Purple Stars:
    1350 Reviews = 1 Purple Star, 4 Red Stars
    1450 Reviews = 2 Purple Stars, 3 Red Stars
    And so on and so forth

For Skyblue Stars:
    1850 Reviews = 1 Skyblue Star, 4 Purple Stars
    1950 Reviews = 2 Skyblue Stars, 3 Purple Stars
    And so on and so forth

For Lime Stars:
    2350 Reviews = 1 Lime Star, 4 Skyblue Stars
    2450 Reviews = 2 Lime Stars, 3 Skyblue Stars
    And so on and so forth

For Orange Stars:
    2850 Reviews = 1 Orange Star, 4 Lime Stars
    2950 Reviews = 2 Orange Stars, 3 Lime Stars
    And so on and so forth

The new max is 3350 reviews. I dare anyone to even try to get that much.

... Why do I have the feeling Snoink will hit that by the end of the year? :P

Ye gads! And to think I hoped to one day, slowly, achieve the max when I was decrepit and old. Now it will never happen. :(

I'm still proud of the stars I have, no matter how many stars you add to the system!

Whoa. :shock: That's a little scary. How am I ever going to be able to catch up...?

You could always reach the old max Omar XD

I like the purple stars which is probably good because I think I'll be seeing them for some time, hehe.
