I don't know if it is just me but I really have problems to value the stars next to the nicks. At these times I only look at banners and the posts/thanked count to judge a new face. Donor banners or a Jr. Vip signs are clear and hard to misunderstand. But as example I had 5 nice blue stars next to my nick a week ago, I recently went up a level and now have just one star in a slightly changed color. I know the system behind it is thought through but I personally lost track of what is good and what is less good. Maybe we should limit the different colors to 2 or 3 (like gray, blue & silver stars) or increase size of the stars when a level goes up ?
