The context is different, but this list really shows followed users. I wrote in my question that i use 5 stars instead of 1. Logged in user can give 1-5 stars to other user or leave him "unrated". It is actually the same as normally: if logged in user gave a star to some other user (one star or more), that other user will be on the list.
The question is how can i initially show 10 users, and on button click show the full list?
