Ten Things I Hate About Stardoll


Before we begin....
Hello Stardoll EMPLOYEES. I know at some point you'll be reading this, so pay attention.
Here we go.

Let's face it, when it comes to Stardoll, there are quite a few things we all dislike about this addictive site. And for some reason, no matter how many messages we send to Stardoll employees, they don't seem to understand. So I'm going to lay it out for them, right here on MDM. 

Ten Things I Hate About Stardoll:
(From least annoying to most annoying)

10.  Outdated Album
At number ten is the outdated album. It's the least annoying because I still find myself capable of being creative. However, I would appreciate more text options, maybe some effects like the cameras have, and more tools.


9. Covergirl
Covergirl falls in at number nine. If I cared about it more, it would have found itself closer to number one. What does annoy me about the covergirl system, is the fact that people with oodles of Stardollars who waste their day posting "I'm running for Covergirl! Vote for me!" in guestbooks are the ones who often times win. That doesn't seem fair to me. I believe Stardoll should choose the daily covergirl. Based not on social ranking, wealth and ability to annoy people with their begging. But based on the person. I bet you're all asking how Stardoll would go about doing that. And to be quite honest, I'm not entirely sure. But it's definitely something for them to mull over.


8. Messaging System

Don't you worry, Stardoll. I don't mind wasting 45 minutes trying to send one message to my entire inbox. Don't you even bother taking some time out of your busy Stardoll schedule to implement a button that allows users to mass message their entire inbox. We're perfectly happy copying and pasting ONE FREAKING MESSAGE into hundreds of message boxes.
Here's hoping they pick up on my sarcasm.


7. Recycling
How great of stardoll to create a recycling system where we can rid ourselves of their useless gifts and other items that don't sell. And how stupid of Stardoll to allow ONE stardollar or FIVE useless starcoins for every item we want to recycle. This recycling function is practically useless because no one in their right mind would recycle something and get far less than half of what it's worth. If Stardoll wants the recycling bin to prove useful, I do believe they should at least offer half of what the item was originally worth.



6. Scenery Glitches
After being discouraged many times, due to scenery glitches, I gave up on creating them. However, lots of Stardollians are quite amazing at procuring these still images. And how annoying it must be to spend an hour making a work of art, only to have something get fucked up.
Why yes, Stardoll. I wanted to visit the Eiffel Tower with my dress half off!


5. Objects Over Hair

Want to wear a cute necklace with your sweet, long hair?
Well that's just too fucking bad!!
For some reason, any piece of jewelry, decorations and even eyelashes appear on top your hair in the beauty parlor. And no matter how irritated you get, you cannot wear a necklace under your hair.
Seriously Stardoll? How long would it take to fix this problem?


4. Non Superstar Restrictions
I am not a non ss member of Stardoll. And the longest I have been without Superstar membership is under a week. That does not, however, make me happy about the restrictions non ss members face. I understand Stardoll wants to provoke them to upgrade to superstar membership. But  not all members are that fortunate. In fact, if I still lived at home and I relied on my father to buy ss for me. I would not be superstar. Because he would say that it's a waste of money. And I'm sure many parents feel that way. So why not cut non superstars a break? If anything, at least allow them to choose their freaking skin tone and make some more appealing non superstar items. And limiting them to starcoins? That's bullshit and you know it.


 3. Word Filtering
We get it, Stardoll. You don't want us using curse words on your website. I'm not saying word filtering is a bad thing. What I am saying is that when I can't put the word 'shoes' and 'extra' next to each other because the last letter of shoes and the first two letters of extra spell sex, we have a problem. I was once even prohibited from using the word 'album' in my presentation because the filter recognized 'bum' in the word 'album' as a bad word. Keep the filter. But for Pete's sake, turn it down a notch!



2. Overpricing 

Stardoll has become so money hungry, that they are becoming quite ridiculous with their pricing methods. Hot Buys have significantly rose in price. Especially in the last few months. And Stardoll probably thinks we are too stupid to notice. But I've got news for them. THIS IS ME NOTICING! I believe Stardoll is getting a bit too big for its britches. 



1. Stardoll Administration
Stardoll's method of punishment are quite odd. I find them worrying too much about things that aren't that big of an issue and often times overlooking things that are. I think we all know that Stardoll reads our blogs. That being due to the fact that they've ripped off MDM a few times. So they should know all about MMC9's hacking ways. So instead of permanently deleting MMC9 and blocking his IP address, they threaten to delete Mel, who has a couple of harmless photos on her presentation. 
Get real, Stardoll.

  2. Wow! This is the best post EVER!! You have put all of my frustrations with SD into one simple, factual post. I love you!

    Now, Stardoll, FIX THESE THINGS. Stop being so greedy and take care of your members.

    Thanks so much, AislinVictory!!!

  3. You miss something,Stardoll should put a limit on broadcast so Talented CG will be back too see.I agreed with your post i hate that too,hope stardoll change their mine reading this!

  4. I totally agree. Stardoll needs to fix things up immediately, lose the greed, and come up with better ideas. They act like we're supposed to like everyrhing they do. I'm glad this was posted.

  6. :( Why would you want to recycle an Elle blazer!?! No I'm just kidding..

    I honestly agree with you on all these points and truth be told, we all know that stardoll should fix it's customer service but as of now..it's just a money sucking getaway

  7. Every word you said is the honest truth,and Stardoll,needs to re-think the way they treat us.

  10. I hate covergirl, jewelry on top of medoll, and many other things you mentioned, it is time for Stardoll to wake up and do something. And I also hate broadcasts, I want the old system back when you were able to type your own message, I am sick of dragging words.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I hope they read it, it had everything that annoys me too. For covergirl maybe stardoll could use the hat generator and generate a random covergirl, that way everyone could get a chance.

    Stardoll we might use you alot, but please these things are driving us away.

  12. The administration one is probably the one the staff should pay attention. My old account was deleted by staff after I was hacked, because of bad language or being inappropriate or something. No matter how many times I e-mailed them they just said I'd been inappropriate? Yet I've wasted my money on the account.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I don't agree with everything you said & remember there are millions of people who use the site as well & it would be wrong of stardoll (if they read this) to take opinions of just few people or a blog. Stardoll also annoys me too but the high prices are not just restricted to hotbuys but everthing in starplaza to suite shop. Their new way of increasing suite shop items is to release decor items in starplaza.

    The covergirl competition doesn't interest me either but a lot of members who spend money & time on advertising would disagree with you because they don't always win. I agree stardoll should choose the covergirl but remember there are millions of active members, how would they do this & who would pay for this extra work to be done? Is it the ss & royalty members? And I know that recent covergirls are not the popular members because I've never heard or seen most of them before.

    I partly agree on the recycling in terms of pricing but it also helps get rid of unwanted items unlike before, so it's not entirely pointless.

    About the non-ss restrictions, I'm mainly non-ss now because I too I'm sick of stardoll's ways (but that's just me)but I feel it is the paying members who are taken advantage of because if not for them stardoll would not have as many features as it has today which is enjoyed by everyone. We keep demanding for so many things to be done & updated but who pays for them? How is the site maintained? Stardoll updates their sites more regularly than other sites(I hate to praise them but it's true). I think the introduction of starcoins has some advantages because all members earn more & it has helped improve the starbazaar. Most paying members would not be happy if items they pay for can be bought from free stardollars earned by non paying members. We keep complaining about non-ss being restricted but nobody complains of how many times or how much money they've lost on items they've bought being given out free on a regular basis. I think paying members are the victims here not those who are getting it all free. We all contribute our time on stardoll, but others contribute more & we should stop comparing ourselves to them & demanding more things for others to pay for it. We all want a better site but how much would it cost & who will pay for it? We should learn to be content, especially if we don't pay for it.

  15. I can't agree with you more. Firngers crossed, so stardoll will read this. They REALLY have to.

  16. I agree with every word! I hope they will read this post!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think you just said what we are all feeling right now!
    Can't help but wonder how many spam messages we would get from other members if there was a "send to all friends" button on messages begging for votes from covergirl.
    Great post!

  18. I totaly agree .aspecialy about the covergirl system or you have to put in 500 sd to spend on broadcasting and lets pray you will be CG or you will be left without your 500 stardollars .I think it shoudl be based on looks just like real models do .Not only looks but popularity and the hole page that they have created some people have oustanding pages but will never become cg go's they dont want to wast 500 sd if ther is someones that spends 7000 sd just that day to run for cg.
    And the prizes are sky high realy realy too expecive i am not pore or anything but i am not ridge or even close to that .stardoll is starting to cost more money everyday ,aspecialy if you want to be ss and buy the designer clothing .and for the suites everything is ss.
    And stardoll spend way to much time on useless problems than on the hackers or realyy anoying or scamming people .

    ReplyDelete
  19. YES! IK! Im not starting a sob story, but being a non-superstar SUCKS because i cant buy ANYTHING with stupid "starcoins" and its so annoying! And one more thing u could add to the list is, almost 100% of the time, superstars or royalty are elected covergirl! So if you aint rich, you cant be squat...even on a game?? Really? And whats with this "royalty" crap? whats tht even mean?

  21. you are right in part for example Covergirls these past few months have convinced me not much ¬¬ I remember at first when you start earning stardoll girls who had an impressive style and admired his suite your clothes, large collections Limited edition, Dkny , antidote tributes this last time I liked nothing better than to and deserve to win I agree with Nadine86 ^^ There are girls who spend up to 7000 sd in broadcast messages :S and so to a trophy and visits almost every member of stardoll should also win Stardollars or something else, the scenery Now that system there are times that I have hours to create and other girls to eventually move the doll clothes just hate it ¬¬
    anyway it's my view:)

  22. Everytime I put an item up for sale in starcoins it sells but the items in stardollars don't sell. Yet non-ss claim they have no money & are not treated fairly. I don't agree with the royalty club though.

    1. First: Everyone wants to buy in starcoins, because, not eveyone has stardollars. Second: Some superstars dont have money. You can;y expect all superstar and royalty to have money.

  23. I couldn't agree more!! I hope they understand how fucking annoying these things actually are!! Keep it up!

  24. Exactly. I agree with everything! Except the high prices - maintaining the site costs money, believe it or not. But the way they're going about getting that income isn't necessarily the best, in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  25. The Covergirl problem really annoys me. I've been on Stardoll for 4 year and never won a thing, but then someone who's only joined in say, June this year wins Covergirl, just because she spent her entire day broadcasting. God, it annoys me so much.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Stardoll probably read this, because the prices of the new Givenchy tribute are waaay cheaper than the other tributes. In the YSL Tribute it was like, 36sd for an ugly t-shirt, and now it's 16sd for a cute pullover.

  30. For the most part, I am in agreement with you. I remember a time when one could buy a dress for no more than 6 Stardollars. Now, that very same dress is on sale for 20 Stardollars. The recent inflation would not bother me so much if we were given more money when we purchase a Superstar membership. However, the fact of the matter is: We are given the exact same amount of Stardollars now as we got back then. Our money does not go as far as it used to and it is only going to get worse.

  33. This blog is so true, I'm so glad someone finally wrote about these serious issues. I haven't been a member long but when I initially created an account, and it was non ss there wasn't much options for me, you go shopping with the starcoins that are given and end up with 2 tops, and 2 pairs of jeans. Everything is limited to non ss. Now I am an ss, I can do a lot more but everything costs money. To broadcast a simple message calls 5 stardollars, a ridicoulous amount of money to write a message with very limited words, that should be free. Your stardollars are already disappearing rapidly with the cost of clothes, shoes that can cost over 60 stardollars, and spending 20 stardollars on a top is a bit too over the top. Unfortunately we are living in a recession and some people just can't pay for a game, as stardoll sits there and eats away at our money. Yes, running a site is expensive, but not that expensive with how much money they get in every day. Greed has consumed todays society, a site thats supposed to be for young girls, has now become filled with this greed, and aims its target towards the wallets of the parents.

  34. It totally agree with you and I hope the stardoll staff reads this and makes some GOOD changes and wise ones because the choices they made with the prices and everything were partially bad. I just wanna say I hope they change.

    1. ''The most annoying thing (I think) are the wigs!'' FYI ** IN MY OPINION** The wigs are awesome. Because you can layer them over the accessories and the masks. And the wigs are better than the original hair Stardoll has.

  44. Thank god someone finally wrote this. I'm 26 years old, and still don't have SS. I lost my password to my 56 account, and I'm stuck with a level 8. (so far) Stardoll can be so bullshitty sometimes. Non-SS's can be really terrible, like, 1000 starcoins, and that's it?? Yeah, they get a daily gift, we non-ss's get literally 50sc(at most) and like, 1sd and 15sps. Yeah, not working. It's like high school, but WAAAAAY worse, and more time-consuming, and expensive.

    Like, I ain't paying money so I can be special on a FICTIONAL SITE. GOD! They need to change. I so fucking hope that a stardoll admin or whatever reads this, and every single fucking comment!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I TOTALLY AGREE!!!
    I also would like to add something to that list: mini-game ranking.
    1. It sucks when the highest ranked player on a game HACKED their way to the top (you can tell 'cause 1000000, is impossible to score on certain games)
    2. Most of the top ten ranked players DELETED or LOST their accounts, but they are still in the ranking!

    I can't believe STARDOLL STAFF isn't doing ANYTHING about this!
    I think we should start some sort of an 'uprising' :P (like a club or something).

Nice to see you back! Oh wait. .. .who are you again?
