The Stars Given page, displaying all the forum posts you've Starred.

Starring

Users can rate other users' messages by attaching Stars to their posts. Stars are a type of untradeable currency that can be bought from the Bank, and cost 10 money each. There is no limit to how many Stars a single post can hold.

When a Resident's forum post has been Starred, the Resident will get an anonymous notification about it.

Users can view a list of own Stars given and received, and click on a post ID to quickly jump to the Starred post in the selected thread. This makes finding "favourited" information easier.
