I've lost my star!

Which means I am now forced to look at a lot of capitalistic advert swill.

Anybody out there willing to buy me a star? Been going in the hole every month this year so far.

I would be eternally grateful............

1. You will either have to have someone PayPal you a few bucks which you then donate, or...

...you will need to trust your account login and password to an established DUer while they buy you the star on your account.

On election day, someone very sweet bought me a star by going on my account to buy it. I then changed the password back 20 minutes later and I was all set.

Sadly, we can't donate for anyone on DU3 like you could on DU2.

2. I tried that for someone else, contributed under their log in, but the star still went to me.

I had to write Skinner to straighten it out. Unfortunately, DU.3 doesn't make it easy to give a star to another member, let alone anonymously. I miss that.

3. lol, rec just for having the guts to beg for a star publicly

 

I salute you sir.

Tell you what, if no one else helps you out, I will buy you one. I just found out I can email anyone money online through paypal, so if no one else will help, PM me your email address and I will send you a little money through paypal to donate to DU. I feel bad anyway because I didn't donate much to get my own star so this will make up for that a little.

4. For most of the time I've been on DU, I haven't had a star. No problem.

The ads didn't bother me. In fact, I don't even notice htey're not there, now that I have a star.

There are some other advantages, though. I think you can place certain people in a list that are blocked to serve on a jury against you. Things like that.

6. speaking of stars

i thought that $5 got us a month of star status here which is what i paid. not complaining but under my star info it says "Time Until Expiration: 337 days." Thanks to Skinner, EarlG and/or Elad if they changed something! love DU! But i hope they are still able to support the site that way.

7. See Skinner's announcement for details on the changes...

Pay what you want. Pay how you want. Becoming a DU Star Member is now much easier.

9. I just lost mine & didn't have much to kick in

due to some unexpected bills. Kicked in $1, got my star back. I'll be kicking in bit more come next payday.
