Anybody there?

It came to my attention earlier today that a lot of this blogs followers are members who are no longer active on Stardoll or in the blogging community.

Please leave a comment if you are reading this right now. I just want to know how many of you are still alive, the idea of posting to a ghost town doesn't appeal to me.

VOGUE on verge of collapse

A recent outburst of posts on many other blogs has urged me to share my views regarding the topic on everybody's tongue at the moment; the fall of VOGUE.

Stardoll VOGUE is a few slaves short of an empire created by Russian dictator user Christina (jelinna). VOGUE started as just a magazine, but soon expanded and branched into many other projects including VOGUE Model House; an overpriced scam opportunity created in which dolls could apply to be a model for VOGUE on either a 6 month contract (for the price of 500 Stardollars) or a 12 month contract (in exchange for a purse splitting amount of 900 Stardollars) and VOGUE Daily, a blog which publishes posts about fashion and news throughout Stardoll. Christina even hired me, but I quit after realising how boring the blog was. It's impossible though to deny that VOGUE has become dominant in Stardoll within the past few months.

But, just days after celebrating it's first birthday, a little bug by the name of Kirsten (sparklewand12) crawled out of the woodwork and exposed empress Christina in a way that shook us all. Kirsten  composed a post on her blog which stated that Christina had refused to refund her payment after notifying her that she is quitting.

To my knowledge, Kirsten purchased a 12 month contract which granted her the privilege of being featured in at least 12 graphics (1 issue every month - 12 months = 12 issues = 12 features) but the shameful reality is that Kirsten appeared in only TWO graphics since purchasing her almost 1k Stardollars contract. She decided it wasn't worth the hassle; keeping to the contract meant she couldn't change her doll nor appear in graphics made by others, so she informed Christina that she was dropping out of the VOGUE Model House. 

Kirsten requested that Christina give her a partial refund of 450SD considering she had only stuck on for 6 months - Christina rudely declined stating "it's not my fault". The real issue is that Kirsten is 100% entitled to a partial refund as she did NOT break any of the rules or specifications whilst on her contract, but Christina (being the greedy corporate queen she is) has her pockets sealed shut.

Should Christina give back the cash?
Is it rude of Kirsten to ask for a refund in the first place?
Are you #teamchristina or #teamkirsten?

Now now girls, let's have a clean fight (kidding, scratch each others eyes out!)
