It looks like they added a couple of new stars to the constellation: Platinum and Black. I have to admit that for the first few months I did not pay much attention to badges and rankings, but lately it seems to be additional motivation as I have gotten higher in the rankings. Congratulations to Aurora on being a Platinum Star, and to Steven W15 on being a Black Star. Although I have to say that is a rather ominous sounding title. It sounds like a ship from the Evil Empire in Star Wars or one of those places in space where everything goes in and nothing comes out. Which, as I think of it, is how my Spanish practice seems to go sometimes!

Yes, I noticed that new stars just appeared. The highest I notice today is Blue Star Hero from nong fu with 341,050 points. Some people, though, do not appear to have been converted over but maybe that is just a temporary glitch in the software.
