Begging is not Pretty

Users do ugly things at Stardoll. Things that if their parents knew, they would be deeply humiliated. One of these is begging. 

There are many ways to beg. A lot of kids ask for gifts. I find someone asking me to spend real money on her account annoying. That is what members do when they ask me to make them a Superstar.

I also don't like the practice of asking a seller to lower prices. A seller tries to set reasonable prices in her bazaar. If you want what she has to sell, buy it. If you don't like her price, go elsewhere. But remember, it may take you more time than it is worth to save a few stardollars. 

Remember that Stardoll keeps a record of everything you do on the site. You may think chat, friend requests or dollmail are private. Nothing is private. And deleted items are still part of your record. Read the membership terms. If they investigate you, they will check it all. Big brother exists. 


  1. This is just fascinating!! I actually bought SS membership for two of my friends by purchasing gift cards from Target, then sending them the codes from the cards. I did it because I wanted to. Yes, they asked me ... one of them did and the other is her sister. I have no idea how to do it any other way. They both have had a wonderful time and have thanked me very much for their fun experiences.

    Your blog is absolutely wonderful. It fascinates me to death. OH, and I love the name of your blog!! LOL for sure...

  2. Hahaaaa! I love what u said to the begger! I've come to the point where I think there's only one way to deal with them and that is simply to block them because they never stop. I get this a lot on chat -- PLZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????????? -- asking to lower prices or sell something from my closet that's not for sale. Obnoxious, rude and all kinds of annoying. My reply? "You've been blocked and voted one star. Tata! "

    On the other hand I feel sorry for the girls who fall victim to the greed vibe so prevalent on the site. The only ppl that can mitigate such feelings are their parents... who probably have a million better things to do than micromanage their kids Stardoll activity.

    But what I find to be even more ridiculous than begging for price drops etc, is begging and spamming to win CG. Do they really think this is behavior befitting a Cover Girl? It's like hello? you've just automatically disqualified yourself IMO. Manners are important, especially of you want ppl to like you. Duh.
