If you go to a Drupal project page (example Views) you will see a new button with a Start like this:

enter image description here

And you can Star and Unstar a project, but what is the real use of this button?

I can't find all the users that have starred a project.

  • Hey downvoter. Why do you think that this question is bad? Help me to improve it please. – Adrian Cid Almaguer May 25 '17 at 20:10
  • When I look at the views page, I don't see that "star" (as in your image), I only see the star itself, and the "35" ... That is when I'm not logged in. After I log in, I do get a similar Star-image like your question here. Also, do you mean "star" or "start"? – Pierre.Vriens May 25 '17 at 21:08

Consider this "Star"-facility as a way to "bookmark" specific contributed modules as your "favorites". Some more details about it (from What’s new on Drupal.org? - April 2017):

Users on Drupal.org may now star their favorite projects - making it easier to find favorite modules and themes for future projects, and giving maintainers a new dimension of feedback to judge their project's popularity. Users can find a list of the projects they've starred on the user profile. Over time we'll begin to factor the number of star's into a project's ranking in search results.

Notes:

  • Projects that you star-ed are shown to others also. E.g here are your current star-ed projects.
  • When I look at the views page (without being logged in to D.O), I don't see that "star" (as in your image), I only see the star itself, and the "35". After I log in, I do get a similar Star-image like your question here.

For the moment the only thing that I can remark is a list with your starred projects, this is available in your profile:

And you can access trough https://www.drupal.org/user/YOUR_USERNAME/starred
