31. Currently we do not provide the option for members to give star memberships to other DU members.
The price of a Star Membership is now affordable for anyone. If someone wants a Star Membership, they are able to get one.
We may reconsider whether to provide this option in the future.
61. Almost affordable for anyone.
I know we have several unemployed DUers here. What if we make a 'Donated Star Membership' a flat rate of like $20? I'd gladly pay that for some people. That's only 4 gin and tonics if you include the tip.
I figure you'd have to do some math to figure out how much each unstarred member is worth in advertising dollars and then add $5 to that number to find a flat rate that would still buy your kids dinner.
I also like the idea of a 'suggested' donation. Whenever I make a donation seeing the options from $5 to $100 I almost always end up giving more than I intended. Those little buttons are so easy to click. What's another $10 bucks, right? Two more gin and tonics.

Unemployed DUers can afford internet service, they can afford $2 for aGood men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
