Sometimes I check them out... sometimes it's obvious. Their first few images get high rankings etc. (I remember at least once where one of the fake duplicate profiles newly created was named rising star)
Today though I got "followed" by someone who is a rising star and only has average images in the mid 500s. I noticed because I was checking to see who follows me...

I am not positive but think they are in novice category.. I see a young friend of mine that just recently signed up in novice class.. he won a couple of awards.. and then I saw a day or so ago... it said Rising Star.. so maybe if they are novice and win an award they become rising star..

Jason posted this earlier in another thread: "The is a new award that we are offer to newer members who have not won a 5 percent or better award. It is below the top 20 percent award. It's really a way to encourage continued involvement.":

Umm...I won 7 5% or better awards prior to just being awarded another "rising star" award, so that answer isn't entirely accurate.

Hi Darlene, the 5% or greater awards you have won are all in the Novice section and don't count when determining your eligibility for Rising Star AFAIK.
