I am a little puzzled by people’s’ reactions. I assumed that by being given this opportunity, that the majority would be happy. After all Stardoll are handing out more privileges to everyone. However there have been quite a few negative comments posted within the Official Stardoll Blog on how it may not be fair on Superstars (including Royalty members) and where do Starcoins go from here?
Starcoins were never welcomed to in open arms – it has to be said.
Beforehand all members could only earn 40 Starcoins a day, Superstars could only transfer a maximum of 500 Starcoins (50 Stardollars) per session. Now, all members can earn 50 Starcoins a day, Superstars can transfer a maximum of 1000 Starcoins (100 Stardollars) all month long. I am unsure whether the exact limit if 1000 Starcoins per month, as I think this new update still needs to settle down and for ourselves to adjust to the information we have just been given.
If the exchange between Starcoins and Stardollars are still only available to Superstars, then I suppose this part of the new update will only entirely benefit those Ex-Superstar members who still have Stardollars left in their purses. It’s not really a win-win situation, but I believe they are doing their best in balancing the equality between the members.
They have also slightly changed the format of the way we purchase Stardollars and Membership. As you logged in, you may have noticed that “More Stardollars” is in a far more bolder border and font – drawing attention to the eyes. Now we do not need to go through the first page, instead we are sent directly to the payments with two different tabs.
More rooms are available to unlock for everyone, which all in all is a good update.
When updates, such as this, are released the big debate is always around the corner on whether or not each range of member is being treated fairly. Majority of community based online websites charge, so I do not see why Stardoll should differ. It’s not a charity, it’s mainly a running business. If you look back to the old ages, you can see now that everyone is being treated far more fairly. Members have suggested in the past for Stardoll to introduce back the old Stardollar system for those Ex-Superstar members whose Stardollars were locked away. They can only provide so many privileges to those who are non-paying members. Of course it’s not fair, but that’s life. I think that the majority can agree there should be at least one form of system where Non-Superstars have the opportunities in balance with Superstars, like the one day specials, but for a longer period of time that has to be earned.
They say on the newsletter to visit the Official Stardoll Blog for more information, however I find the comments far more useful in terms of explaining matters. Let Stardoll know what you think in the comments section if you wish. I would like to add that continuously swearing and not suggesting other variations will not aid you in persuading Stardoll or do much good in providing a better and more just system.
