What do the Diamonds and the Ratings reflect?

Thanks,

The link to the diamonds/permissions matrix made sense. The second link was to something about classifieds and I don't understand how that relates to the "ratings" below a poster which has a percentage and a bunch of full/empty stars?

The second link is just to explain that the Classifieds section is restricted to members with a rank of 3-Diamonds or more.

The row of stars underneath a topic indicate how many times posts in that thread have received a "thanks" from one user to another.

It's like the little green stamps my grandmother saved in books from the grocery store. I'm saving up enough diamonds to get a DA62.

At least 62, I'm guessing. Just working my way up there. (I noticed with the green sticker books that the reward books had all sorts of different stuff each year and my grandmother just seemed to enjoy paging through them. I don't think she ever traded in her stamps for any of it.)
