What do the stars mean?

The stars are positioned under each member's name and denotes their current rank in relation to the number of posts made by that individual. The ranks used in British military have been used in much the same way so a new member will be ranked as a Private (and remain in that group) until he or she has made 10 posts and then reaches the next rank of Lance Corporal and so on.

The following shows the different ranks and the number posts needed to attain each rank:

__00 - Private
__10 - Lance Corporal
__25 - Corporal
__50 - Sergeant
__75 - 2nd Lieutenant
_100 - Staff Sergeant
_150 - Lieutenant
_200 - Captain
_250 - Major
_350 - Lieutentant-Colonel
_500 - Colonel
_750 - Brigadier
1000 - Major-General
1250 - Lieutenant-General
1500 - General
2000 - Field-Marshal

It is simply intended as a bit of fun.
