I hadn't heard so did a little googling.
Found this:

It says they are "stars", and should be set to the number of posts.

Don't know why some of our users have only two stars for over 2000 posts. Must be a setting inside the forum configuration.

EDIT: Tuns out the stars are part of what group you are in. So a "cellerman" has a different number of stars for the number of posts then the number for users in the group "I have no life".
At least I think that is what is happening.
Does it basically mean that the more you have the closer you are to being in the next group?
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

I don't think it does. I recently moved up a level and currently see a bunch of blocks. Ken (Wort H.O.G) is 400+ away from moving up a level and currently has about the same number as I do.
