It infuriates me. Why do people what a diamond next to their name?
Do you think it will bring you more respect? People will appreciate you more? No. It just means you’ve spent more money on Stardoll. You are treated the same as the next Superstar member. I hate how every time I bring up something about Royalty on the post I receive questions on Chat and messages – do I look like a manager?
It may look pretty but seriously, don’t go out all your way on trying to receive a diamond or start taking a hissy fit because you’re not a part of the club (it isn’t even that great, same old boring topics that you see in any other club on Stardoll).
I don’t see the need of why people ask me, Google it – even though Google isn’t really a verb as such – or even better. . Contact Stardoll!
Mette will not add your friend into Royalty because you asked her to, it is an automatic system. If you think you deserve your place in Royalty then contact Stardoll – not me I can’t do anything about it.
There are different theories of how you become a Royalty member, an exact amount of money, purchase at least 365 days of Superstar Membership or be an active member for a set amount of time (which doesn’t seem likely because I’ve seen Royalty accounts who just joined last month).
The FAQ in the Royalty club:
Contact Stardoll here: http://www.stardoll.com/en/help/contact.php
You don’t get any gifts etc. last gift we received was the Holiday Dress which was just deformed in all senses.
People overrate the club, it’s nothing special in my eyes. It used to be so much fun, full of mature people and interesting topics but now it’s just fallen flat on its face.
People message me all the time with “Just got Royalty!!” and I’m like, wow you’ve spent some amount of money on Stardoll – do you want me to clap for you? Obviously it’s a happy day for that member, it’s a goal for some and an achievement for others but I don’t get the big deal. You are not an “Elite” if you are a Royalty member, it makes you no different from the rest of members so don’t go acting around that you’ve got a crown on your head – you’re just going to lose everyone close to you. All that for a diamond? Not worth it.
May be it is easy for me to state my opinions on the diamond since I’ve seen it all, I don’t know what it is like to not be included in the club for such a long period of time since I joined Royalty last year. Trust me on this one, it ain’t what it’s hyped up to be and I’m tired of all the questions and “It’s not fair”. Life isn’t fair. So what if you aren’t included an exclusive club? Doesn’t mean you can’t still log in. Doesn’t mean you cannot make friends. Doesn’t mean you can’t buy clothes in Starplaza. Doesn’t mean you cannot join other clubs. Doesn’t mean that you aren’t respected.
Don’t ask me why Stardoll has Royalty, they wanted to create a third set of members and I’m not a member of staff. Although they have reached a target of creating this idea of upper-class members on this virtual site. Not everyone can be Royalty, if everyone was a part then there would be no point in the entire club and it would have to be scrapped. Stardoll wouldn’t be very happy with that.
I don’t want to discourage anyone from reaching their Royalty goal but you’ve got to be prepared to spend some amount of money here and realise that you have to “work” for it. I’m not some sort of Stardoll Royalty FAQ thank you very much.
We all know it is about the money for Stardoll and some members have even released different theories of how Stardoll could be a better site but they aren’t logical enough. I received a comment a while back where someone suggested that Stardoll could survive on advertisements alone. Completely untrue – it isn’t just about money, profits have to come into the equation as well.
All virtual communities and gaming sites have membership terms, it’s some what of a site formality now. From Runescape to Club Penguin, they all have it so what makes Stardoll any different? Other dress-up sites charge for membership.
It is just tiring that people can sit there on their on their computers thinking everything can be hunky dory. This is a business, a brand. Sure the concept is of dress-up dolls etc. but the main root of the idea is to make money. Cash. Wonga. Gold. Quid. Dosh. Moolah.
