This is not true. It means that the person you are currently playing is logged in and playing via the pokerstars.net software. However that person may also have the pokerstars.com software installed. If so, then when they log in from the .com App, there is no star but they go back to the .net app and the star is back.

Also, it doens't matter if they registered via .net first or not, it simply indicates which software app they are using.

The latter.

Why would the person play .net only if they were a .com player too? Doesn't make sense to me.

The .net and .com software are two different Apps. If a person has both installed (possibly having signed up at .net first and .com later), they would be able to lauch and play either one. I'm not saying these are the brightest lightbulbs or that it makes sense to keep playing on the .net software when you have the .com app; why they would do it wasn't the question, just what does the star mean. :)

Because then they can feel cool by registering for a tourny, then logging into .com so the table pops up, and they have a star on their name.

Interesting theory, but the star is only there when they are logged in to .net. If they then logged into .com, the star would not be there. It's a function of the app they are running, not how they registered.

Side note observation: Interesting to see so much interest on a tiny white star. :)

Sure, if you're playing with play money via the .net site. Again, it's not how or what you're playing, it's where (.net, not .com).

This is a fact? I can't believe how dumb people on forums are, and speak w/ such authority on a subject which they clearly know nothing about. The stars, and the number of them that appear on a player's avatar designate the player's VIP status. One star means bronze, two means silver, etc. You can make your star show up on your own avatar by clicking on "options" in the main lobby and then "VIP Display Settings", or something like that.

Sigh.

Look at the OP.

Look where the star to which the OP refers is.

Realise that it's in a different place to the VIP stars.

Realise therefore that it's nothing to do with the VIP stars.

Feel rather silly for making the above post.

And for reopening a year old thread.


And where is JD these days anyway? That's how I knew it was an old thread.

Came here via google. Got this star thing put on my pic playing Razz - but have never used the .net software - or registered via .net. Looking around, i am on a Lambo FR table as well, and one player there has it as well. Not sure it indicates site preferences (.net or .com). But can't quite figure out what else it signifies...
