I had a couple of stars in TMS... i dont have an account in TMU yet, and the ManiaStars option for that one isnt up yet anyway, so... no stars for TMU for me so far.

The above message did not actually exist, and you just wasted a minute of your life reading a fabrication of your mind.

lol we've actually never mentioned the subject of 'stars" in tmu.

I speak for myself now: but I think the reason for not having stars is that it's another thing which can be abused if users 'network' alot. Like 'please vote for me', sometimes gets more priority, and the representation of these stars become distorted. The user with the most votes beome the most stars...

And you have all these statistics going on in TMU games (per zone, and on maniazones.com) .....

I guess if that is the case the 'fame' tab would be removed in an update :)

I think there should be a special Star giving team.

for example, youve been 1st in a tournament, which gives you 80 starpoints.
you made a great track, 10 starpoints.

50 starpoints for 1st star, 150 for second etc

people can say why some people need to get more starpoints
and the star team will validate these, or not ofcourse.

A star giving team? Exactly who would be on this "star" team? I think that the community should decide who the fame and reputation belongs to . . . a special group can't make this happen. Not to mention, that this team could easily abuse their powers. After all, if this team is composed of everyday racers (let's say), then they will tend to pick and select the people they would like. And if this team is composed of lets say moderators from various tm sites & places (etc.), then they would have no clue as to who really deserves the award or not. And this team clearly can't be composed of Nadeo personal since they also have no clue who some random person is. Let's say a person has helped me very much on making a certain track and I want to give him a star. I would have to go to this so called team and ask them to grant this person a measely star. Personally, they have no clue if you are lying or telling the truth. So there is no possible way for the "team" to validate this request. So I really don't see how incorporating a star team would be beneficial to the upcoming star system.

Now, if you mean creating a team for particular occasions, then it might be a good idea. For example, having a star team at tm-forum and tmx would be a good idea. That way new trackmakers or helpful people at this forum could earn a better reputation or recognition from the online community. :)
