Made a yeast starter this morning and so far there is krausen right now so it looks good. Should I continue to stir? it's been eight hours now or should I let it be?

Maybe I'll take some pictures later and post some yeast porn!

It won't hurt to stir or shake it. The more O2 in suspension, the more the yeast can make little baby yeasts.

Stir the F out of it, the more O2 like Nateo said the better. Thats why stir plates produce so many more cells.

No reason to let it settle. I just dump the whole thing in my wort.
