Stardoll features a large number of features for its users, which vary depending on whether the user has superstar (paid membership) or non-superstar (free membership). These features include:
-Dressing up online celebrity dolls, including but not limited to Miley Cyrus, Ashley Tisdale, Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, and a number of real brands including DKNY.
-A 'StarPlaza' in which users can purchase virtual clothing items, with virtual currencly known as 'Stardollars'. More stardollars can by obtained for a user by purchasing superstar membership, unlocking extra features, such as StarBazaar, for said user.
-A virtual magazine which features one user who has acheived the highest 'covergirl' votes. This user wins 25 stardollars and becomes popular almost instantly.
-A 'Stardesign' which allows users to design a pattern using a variety of preset shapes and colours, turning this to into a clothing item and virtually buying it (only available to superstars, unless a promotion is present) and occasionaly, selling it to other users via StarBazaar.
-A 'My page' which works as a profile for the individual user. This feature allows the user to write their own presentation and create a virtual flash suite and decorate it with various decorations, interior designs, and fill their virtual wardrobe.
-A 'Medoll' in which each user can create their own virtual medoll and choose their basic features, such as hairstyle, hair colour, eye colour, etc. Other features such as makeup and accessories can be purchased in the StarPlaza, however, a majority of these are only available to superstar members.
-A 'club' feature, in which members can join a virtual club and participate in discussions, sign a guestbook, create club sceneries and superstar members can even start their own club. Clubs can be about anything, including a band of interest, however, recently a lot of 'adult' clubs have become present, posing a risk to the younger Stardoll members. Also, Stardoll's most popular club, Animal-lovers, has united hundreds of members, not always in a good way. For instance, a number of rather dramatic feuds may have originated in this club, including a variety of ridiculous phenomenons, such as 'virtual parties', 'popular lists', and dirty stories. The owner of this club never seems to be online to control this club, so clearly this my cause a lot of distress to the members who try to moderate the club by themselves, but I don't blame them!
Of course there are many other features on the website, but here I have just outlined most of the main ones.
Although there are some lovely people on Stardoll, who I've had the pleasure to meet and interact with, there are way too many scammers, hackers and liars, and generally unpleasant people. This includes a number of the 'elites', a fairly recent phenomenon, which basically means users who are on Stardoll 24/7, have pretty much ALL the rare clothes, are usually virtual models for a virtual Stardoll-related magazine (such as Style Magazine) and usually have a very obnoxious personality. They are also difficult to communicate with, so avoid these people at all costs.
Children under the age of eleven generally should stay away from joining any of these clubs, in particular Animal-Lovers as this club tends to be more appropriate for older users.
If you are a member of Stardoll, your best bet is probably to join Animal-Lovers and make friends with some of the nice people (but avoid the popular people as they tend to be very unpleasant), and just try not to be one of these popular people. Join in conversations which interest you, and stay away from topics made by the 'popular people'. These topics can be identified as containing 'deep' *sarcasm* lyrics, usually by something along the lines of My Chemical Romance or Fall Out Boy, usually made by a 'guy' with an emo hairstyle on said person's medoll, and most of the time, getting at least five replies within twenty seconds of posting. If you post in these topics, the intelligent people will automatically label you as stupid (don't let this happen to you).
Stardoll gossip blogs are also a very popular fad. Although to some people they are very addictive to read, try to stay away from these blogs as they might distract you from the fact that Stardoll is just a virtual website, and might make you think that it's real life. This is due to the fact that the authors of these blogs often tend to think of the latest feuds that happen on Stardoll as very similar to those that may happen to real life. Again, don't let this happen to you!
You should also be careful when buying Superstar membership, as this tends to be a risky decision. Users who ungrade their account to superstar often find that it is very addictive and once your superstar membership you tend to buy it again. You should only really buy superstar if you're really, really, desparate.
That's it really. You're supposed to enjoy Stardoll, not take it too seriously.
animal-lovers is the perfect example of bitchyness, backstabbing, perves, sluts, etc,etc,etc, all jammed into one webpage.
popularity seems to be pretty much the number one thing in animal-lovers, and 'populars' will make attention seeking topics,meaning NOTHING to anyone else. but, of course, since the topic writer is popular, EVERYONE will just HAAAVE to write in the topic. mainly to try and befriend the 'popular'.
and then theres the perves,
40 year old pedos or bored 13 year olds, whatever they are, seem to enjoy making disgusting topics and pissing everyone off.
the topics usually include something about sex, which are probably all made up lies. seeing as they have no social life.
and theres the scene wannabes- who make their medolls 'scene' or 'emo' to try and 'fit in'- liars, pic posers- yes, people ARE actually so pathetic that they POSE as other people on the internet to try and get compliments. which is pathetic, seeing as YOURE not even the person-, scammers, 'elites', virtual whores, and the plain annoying people.
perve2: OHH, thats hot.
perve1: LETS GO MAKE VIRTUAL BABIES!
scene wannabe: -posts pic- ohhh, im so ugly, give me sympathy.
gullible person: OHH YOURE SO PRETTTTTTTY.
scammer: I CAN GET YOU 1000000000000 STARDOLLARS. ALL I NEED IS YOUR STARDOLL ACCOUNT PASSWORD AND YOUR EMAIL.
stupid person: OKAY.
elite1: ohhhhhh.. im so popular. GIMME THAT FIRST SEASON DKNY.
elite2: NO ITS MINE.
elite1: MINE, WHOREBAG.
Well,some parts of stardoll are completely free and safe,we call those the "elites".
The users with all the MKA rare clothing and the perfect grammar and speech,plus the bland personalities.
NOTE: Elites are known to be backstabbers,will give up a vital organ for First season DKNY.
Then we have the wemos and scene posers.
Most of which are alive in the club forums,or more known to be called "clubs".
They roam OriginalClub,Animal-Lovers.And FashionClub with their short bobs,lip peircings,vulgar writing style,and at least 40 fake eyelashes growing on their eyes like mold growing on old cheese.
Warning: Stay away from them at all cost,tend to attack with various flavored gummy bears in order to impress the guy in the "V.Neighborhood" topic.
Next thing you have to know is that the most popular clubs,e.t Animal-Lovers;OriginalClub;FashionClub, have a severe hatred toward eachother.
OC & FC tend to "invade" upon Animal-Lover's territory.
These "invasions" are known to be lame and filled with insults they got from their drunk older brother.
Animal-Lovers used to invade,but these invasions were far more planned out and entertaining.
The most well known invasions are the "flan,flan" invasion,and the "senior citizen" invasion.
Invasions are acts of supreme boredom.
Alright,now if by chance you piss anyone off by the invasion then give yourself 12+ flan flan points.
Next,the "populars",don't expect your topics in the forums to get fully admired.
People don't really care,unless your popular.
That's pretty much stardoll.
On stardoll,you pay 60 for DKNY platform shoes,and 4.99 for your soul.
Elite2: UH,YEAH! I SO HACKED THIS HOE,HAHA,that's what they get.
Elite: OH SPOT ON!
Scene Poser1: RAWRRzz!11one!!11 I iSHHH ASHHlEY!11
Normal Person: Uh,hi?
Scene Poser2: ZOMGGGzzz,ANOTHER SCENE PERSON!!!11 WANNA GO TALK ABOUT NEON AND RAINBOWS AND UNICORNS AND BOWS AND THE WORD "ishh!?"!?!?!!111
Scene Poser1: HELLZYEAH!
*Scene poser 1 & 2 run off to talk about stuff while normal person stands there thinking about what the hell he just saw*
Lame Invader from OC: HAHAHAHA,I INVADED YUUHSSZZ!
AL Member: All you did was make a topic.
Lame invader from OC: Yeah but...I...uhh..gave you emotional stress?
AL member: Sure thing honey,whatever helps you sleep at night.
I thought Stardoll was just for dressing up dolls,but someone hacked my acount and someone else from Animal-Lovers virtually raped me!
Also a website that loves to take advantage of young people, but only if they're stupid enough.
My friends on Stardoll are the best!
