OK, just played Stars Zoom, and with 100/200 a pot bet (using the POT button) is 700.
3x is 600 if first to act, pot button also assumes first to act.
Going to WPN now....
OK, WPN does not have a POT button, and the 3X ends up being 4X per the Stars standard, so if you choose the 3X button it assumes you are calling and then raising 3X. Very old school. If UTG limps, and then I 3x, it is still as if UTG had not bet, and it means call PLUS 3x the bb. Post flop the options change to relative pot size bets, 1/3, 1/2. 2/3 and shove, with no actual POT button.
Point is, thru the years, the sites have seldom standardized this.
****no antes where involved ...
