I'm happy to announce an update to the Green Star functionality. Something many of you have been requesting for years! We all love giving (and getting!) Green Stars. But a missing piece has always been the ability to tell a member *why* you're giving them a green star. Well, now you can!

We wanted to do this in a way that didn't complicate the purity of giving a green star, and also didn't open the door to abuse
. So, this is what we came up with... Beneath every group discussion post, every c2nn story, every share and every comment (in Causes, Healthy & Green Living, C2NN and Care2Share) you will now see a "send a green star" link. Clicking that link how you tell that post/story/share/comment author "Thank you for writing this". The Green Star notification you receive in Personal Messaging will now tell you what the sender is thanking you for.
Everything else about sending and receiving green stars is as it ever was.

Oh! One more thing.
On your Green Star Kudos page, the list of stars is now broken up into pages. SO those of you with hundreds and thousands of Green Stars won't have to wait ages for that page to load.

If you just want to send someone a plain old Green Star, you still can.
You do this either from their MyPage profile, or the avatar popup that pops up when you mouse over someone's avatar. 
We hope to add this functionality to more parts of the site soon. Hope you enjoy this!

\nIf you\'re an active user of C2NN you\'ve probably noticed a dramatic increase of \"spammy\" stories being submitted lately. They never make the Front Page (because nobody notes them), but for those of us who spend time in Newly Submitted reading the new...
