I know I’ve mentioned this several times on the blog, but when will Stardoll ever update Chat?
I don’t mind talking to people, but it’s just when I am in a bad mood in which I don’t feel like talking or I am busy with something like recording a Youtube video, then I start feeling so much hatred towards Stardoll and their silly little chat box.
I even go to the lengths of disconnecting my internet when I am recording a tutorial since some people do understand “Sorry I cannot talk at the moment since I’m recording a Youtube video. I’ll talk in 10 minutes”. Suddenly when I’m almost finished the Chat box appears on my recording area with somebody asking me if I’m finished or not, which ruins my recording and I have to start again.
If they created an off/on button then I would be happy. They previously had a Chat on/off feature before the Big Makeover, so I don’t see how they can’t create one now.
And then you get absolute nutters trying to talk to you on Chat. This seriously happened while I was starting this post:

If you got confused then I’ll explain. Her friend/sister (I have no idea) sent me that girl’s (who has been hacked) password this morning and asked if I could give her a Suite Makeover. I declined as I need the owner of the account’s permission before I change anything – it’s my policy. I didn’t talk to her friend/sister after that. Then she stroke up the conversation with me first and it’s quite obvious she knew who the other girl was (the friend/sister) when she mentioned that she was her sister. Usually why you are unfamiliar with someone you reply “Who?”. So I am contemplating whether it is her sister/friend who is hacking her, or herself to seek attention or someone else altogether.
I’m sure I’ve given both girl’s Suite Makeovers before. I strictly remember them and she never used to type so atrociously. Since when did typing long-hand symbolised being posh? Just because someone wants to actually sound their own age instead of an uneducated 9 year-old that doesn’t make them “posh”. I can understand why you would use text speak in a long Guestbook comment or using your Mobile Phone due to the character limit, but with Chat you can type as much as you want and there’s not much of that kind of urgency to forget your vowels and spelling lessons you spent with your teachers since the early age of five.
Agh well, that’s what you get by sharing passwords with people. I hope she gets her account back somehow. I was thinking about saving her account since her friend/sister told me her password but I don’t even remember what it was.
Anyways back to the subject, I actually prefer Guestbook commenting rather than chatting. With chatting if I don’t reply in under 2 minutes, my chat will be spammed with:
User-name101: Lel where r u?
User-name: r u there????
User-name101: bwhfbdiflbsedfbjudbasdhkadbjaksjf aksda
User-name101: fine ignore me
User-name101: U b****
Lel1996: I said I was Be right back a minute ago? -.-
I somehow wish there was an Away/Busy status. But altogether an off/on feature for chat. Also with Guestbook comments there is no urgency and I can play a game whilst on another Chrome Tab- reply to my messages.
There was a discussion on Stardoll Royalty recently and the girls were talking about being labelled snobby just because of the Diamond and not answering messages. I’ve had this before, people telling me they thought I’d be snobby and thinking I’m above all, which I find strange. Any way some girl was calling names to this Royalty member because she wouldn’t answer her chat messages and an argument was escalating. I don’t see how not replying to your Chat messages is snobby. Sometimes people don’t feel like talking, are away from the screen or they are too busy to chat.
We are all human beings, we have emotions and things to do. We can’t all just sit there and smile and be polite 24/7.
I also hate this about when talking to people on Chat. When someone strikes up a conversation every time I am online and it always goes no where and they keep asking me the same bloody thing:
User-name2: what u wanna talk about
Lel1996: I don’t know?
. . . . .
They keep introducing new topics but I don’t even know them that well and it just dies down and they keep asking me what I want to talk about! Ugh it irritates me because they are exactly like the example above this, if I don’t reply they’ll spam up my Chat boxes.
On weekends I find it very difficult to keep on with Chat messages. When you have over 180 friends online and over 10 people want to talk to you, it can be very difficult to deal with.
I used to always criticise those who did not accept blank requests, but with Chat now I can see why they do so. Randomers just talking to you on Chat 24/7.
Don’t get me wrong, I do like talking to people but Chat irritates me on so many levels and what is more annoying about it is that Stardoll is more focussed on offering us brand new Superstar membership and Stardollar deals than our welfare online.
So to answer the question of this post, How much I detest Stardoll Chat? It’s a lot.
