Welcome to the forums, sweetpeanut.   :)

The stars are an indication of how many posts have been made by a person.

Asking a question is not dumb but not asking a question is.

Überevangelists are people with many many posts... don't know how much are needed... but I think more than 10000 or so...

über means above/higher than
and evangelist is a synonyme for a big fan/follower...
(I think this status once was described like this somewhere else in the forum...)

Überevangelists also have the normal yellow stars...

There is little need to worry about the stars they just increase with your post count, the colours too aren't worth worrying about as the UserName usually has some other profile information below it, those with Alwil Team or Moderator are developers of the avast anti-virus.

An Überevangelist is probably someone with way to much time on their hands ;D I can't recall if it was 20,000 or 25,000 post, which is unimportant really. What is important is the content and help you receive from whomever it is, be that a Newbie or an Überevangelists as that only relates to posts in the avast forums and not experience in the real world.

There are some very experienced avast users, who when they first join are Newbies, but that most certainly doesn't equate to their experience.

By the other weird icons I take it you mean those below, see image
WinXP ProSP3/ Core2Duo E8300/ 4GB Ram/ avast! free 18.5.2342/ Firefox ESR, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ DropMyRights/ WinPatrol+/ Drive Image 7.1/ SnagIt 10.0/ avast! mobile security
Windows 10 Home 1909 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 19.8.2393 (build 19.8.4257.552) UI-1.0.440/ WinPatrol+/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ WinPatrol+/
