It's TRUE!!! I just became a 'donating' member...without paying! So I ask myself what the **ck is going on!! Unless someone sent $25 in and put it under my name, I have just become and 'official' donating member by doing absoulutley nothing!! Why?

You know its really good having no ads, but I thought you should know that I havn't actually paid. Of course your most welcome to leave the red star on, it makes me stand out in the crowd

I wish someone would put the red star by my name, too! (I will get one soon enough I guess, when I pay for it!)

Such a small price to pay.

So do the right thing and donate.

The first rule of red star club is, don't start threads about red star club!

Unless this is one of your red star club games, where you sign someone up, then you all gang up and get them under enough pressure to have to pay the $25??

Dont have money right now to donate, dont have a job and got more important things to pay for at the moment. Will consider later it later though.

Its not really fair if I keep it, so count me out, but hey you got a $25 donation, maybe you could do some seroius tracking to find out where it came from.

I know who sent the money, but they want to remain anonymous. This is not the first time somebody else has upgraded another users membership. *shrug*

Is this the equivalent of the Charlie Brown Secret Admirer of the Little Red Starred Girl for Valentine's Day? (ironic, no?)
