NOTICE: If you purchased/renewed a Star Membership and your hearts did not show up...

This discussion thread was locked by EarlG (a host of the Announcements group).

Please be patient -- there appears to be a short delay in processing at the moment. If you don't get a DU Mail message about your hearts immediately, you should receive it within 15-20 minutes of your purchase.

If you still haven't received the hearts after that, please send me a message to let me know and I'll look into it.

Thanks

EarlG

1. For people not seeing the credit card button!

I just figured that one out!

Even though I am a member and don't need to use Adblock on this site, it defaulted to be on.

When I couldn't see the credit card button I had an epiphany to turn off my Adblock, and there it was!!

If so, good to know -- thanks.

4. You are right.

I bought hearts earlier this evening and it did take a while to receive them.

But I did receive them and have already bestowed all of them to my fellow DUers!

I love giving hearts! i will definitely buy some more.

Thanks, EarlG! (I gave you one of my hearts in gratitude for all that you do!)

5. Well now I am flummoxed.

I tried to do it with the Adblock on and it didn't work the same way....the credit button showed up.

But originally, turning off the Adblock worked.

Or maybe it was just a coincidence. Oops. My username says that can't be it.

7. If you are a monthly subscriber you should have some hearts to give out

Check the bottom of any post, and there should be a link which says "Give a heart..." The link will also tell you the number of hearts you have remaining. To give a heart, just find a post by the person you want to give a heart to and click that link.

If you're a monthly subscriber and that link is telling you that you have to buy hearts, please send me a message to let me know and I'll look into it.

11. I have uBlock Origin

By the time I thought to disable it, I was at the page to take the credit card info so I didn't bother disabling. Redirected back to DU afterwards.

Checked my "Star Membership Page" and it was showing expiration in 1 day. Found this announcement thread, read it, checked again and I had DU mail and an expiration date of next year. Took less time to show up than it took to type this.

Thanks EarlG!

12. Only recent renewals or monthly subscribers , correct?

If I renewed my star some months back, then I just need to buy hearts, is that right? I think I misunderstood this last year.

13. That's right

You either have to be a monthly subscriber, or purchase/renew your Star Membership while the fund drive is going on (ie. this week) to get hearts.

16. Aloha, EarlG.. I have a big problem..

I noticed "General Discussion" wasn't offered in the "Main" Forums but I got there anyway.. And then this Message in Yellow comes up when I try to post..

You can't post in this forum because it is a read-only archive.

This has Never Happened Before!

Oh & I noticed when the Hearts first started that two of mine didn't show up at all. Sorry I didn't see this announcement before.

Mahalo & Happy Valentines Day! 💙

17. We had an unexpected issue in GD and had to shut it down temporarily -- it's open again now

and should be working normally. Please see:
