Default Hina, just a suggestion about 5 stars ;)

Mwahahaha! Another suggestion!!

Well, since people already know (some of them) the secret on getting 5 stars, how about you change the criteria? Like....it has to 17 thumbs-up with NO thumbs-down or 3 or lower thumbs-down and such. Because the whole purpose of the thumbs-up and down is ruined. The purpose of the thumbs is....you're a good citizen of Kupika, you're liked by many or something similar to that right? Some people just tell other people "Giv me a thumb-ups!!!111!1"
And other people make fake accounts so they can just give a thumb-up to their profile.

What do you think of my suggestion?

It is a very nice suggestion indeed.

But... Even if I change the criteria, some people will figure it out and then the cycle will repeat... It is possible to make the criteria obscure enough but that would add overhead to the server (Kupika will be even slower).

Well.....people wouldn't know anything about it if you don't tell them that you *changed* the criteria for the 5 stars I think?
And, if the criteria is just *too hard to guess* then, it will take months or even years before people will find out what it is.
I understand that it may take more work but.....doesn't it stand a chance?

They will know, when they see their 5-stars is gone.
(and I will be spammed with questions regarding that)

It does have a chance and I will think about it, but currently I see the added overhead outweighs the benefits.

Why does it matter?

I agree with Sanyu. I don't think the 5 stars matter.

It does matter to some people, and doesn't to other.
It is nice to have all the stars ^^

But, as I said earlier, "currently I see the added overhead [of redefining the criteria] outweighs the benefits".

actually when we were still trying to figure out teh criteria among the different things i thought it might be was a frequency type of thing..that the person logged onto kupika every day or maybe like 5 times a week..

it would be nice to recognize, reward and create an incentive for people to log on to Kupika frequently with such an award....

the system seems to know if its been 24 hours when we reach our 50 letter limit so there must be some type of timing system in place....and logs for our log ins...so maybe its not too difficult to program the 5th star to appear for peopel that like log in three days in a row... or something like that.. and if you dont log in within the past three days then you lose the star....(or other kind of award)..until you do log in for three days in a row...

24 hours limit for letters is easy to record, because we are just recording one value.

But to record three consecutive login time, we will need three variables, and this will complicate things...

Again, it is all about trade-offs, and I think the current system is the best trade-off.
