  • There are different parts to your answers profile - your level (level 10) is an overall level based on total points. On the left side of your page, near the top, you'll see "My Latest Awards" and an orange button that says "see more". Click that and it will take you to your awards page. That has 3 tabs - personal, subject and event. The awards on the subject tab correspond to the stars and 101/Minor/Major/Degree titles you see when people answer. Each time you earn one of those awards, it will add a new one, just for that subject, for you to work on.

  • You get stars by answering questions. each section (pregnancy, adoption, about cafemom, etc.) has levels. Once you have answered enough questions in them, you go up a level. go to your answers profile and yo ucan see your progress

  • When you unlock and answer so many questions you get those stars. It just kind of shows that we are on here way too much but it all have to do with this college thing that CM has going on

  • You can go in and find how many more you need to answer for a particular topic. You can concentrate on an area if you wish. Fish around on the site. I am always finding something new.

  • Go to the right side of your screen where it says 'welcome zperez0809" and there is a link for view answers profile. It will show the subjects that you need to answer questions and how many questions you have answered so far and how many you need to go up a level in a 'subject'

    this level is different than your overall level of freshmen.

  • It means you've answered a certain number of questions in each category. You can get up to 4 stars. If you go to your My Stuff tab and click on My Awards, you'll see your progress in each category.
