Please clue me on the heart business

I've been a star member for the last 2 years. Do I get hearts for that or do I need to buy them in order to hand them out to others? If I need to buy them is there a separate way to do that without reupping a star membership. Which I just did in December.

Thanks for the advice/instruction in advance. I'm obviously clueless in heart world etiquette.

1. Buy them each February to give away to posts/folks you really appreciate.

It's an extra donation, and done yearly since as long as I recall.

is there a separate page for the heart purchases? Or can I simply go through the star membership form page and add an additional $10-20 for hearts. Is that automatically picked up as a donation, specifically hearts in February?

I stumbled my way through the process after reading the materials again.

Clueless but I eventually caught on.

that you simply go through the page for star membership and donate whatever--$10 or $20, up to you on the amount--and the stars will be there to hand out as you wish. This is a promotion just for February. They even provide a countdown on how many stars you have banked as you start handing them out. Clever Administrators!

In any case, I was looking for a separate donation page, making it more far difficult than it really was.

Best wishes and hope you feel better.

I did, in fact, give you one of my stars but I didn't buy stars for you to use. So, you don't owe me anything. I'm not even sure one can order a star package, and then have it transferred to someone else. That I think would be a question for the Administrators.

Maybe you can throw an query to the Administrator and find out. Or ask a 'help' question in this forum. I just don't know how that works.

Take care.

And you might reconsider putting your personal info out there as you did in a previous post. Best idea is to delete that.

You are best advised to delete the comment where you did list both.
