Truth be told, I can't even tell the difference. Didn't even know until someone pointed it out.

I don't think they meant to give everyone a red star.

Just made my 6th attempt at purchasing the supporter upgrade to no avail. Either the whole store or that particular item appears to be broken. Anyone else still having similar bad luck?

Yeah seeing the star side-by-side is clear now. Well not entirely, the red star is very faint, makes me wonder what the point is in the first place with changing its color.

Same, when I hit the order button on the confirm page it gives a server error.
Could be unrelated but my icon also doesn't show up in the top left on that same page.

You can go to the store and buy prepaid visa cards. I suggest that because I know for a fact they have a 25 dollar option in those cards.

3 questions
are they sold intentionally
do you need id
are there age limits

So if NG was less mainstream, all the animators would forgo YouTube money and post their stuff here first? And all the game developers would turn down the highest bidders and post their games on a site covered in porn ads and screamer spam, because it's punk as fuck?

Times change, the internet changes, peoples' expectations change. And regardless, NG never went mainstream.

Agreed on this one, it is something that's on my mind a lot as the site feels more homogenized. I always hope to bring more personality back into the features and layout once we've accomplished the larger foundational features but those features just keep piling on. I also need to bring more personality back into myself but this has all become pretty serious, considering how high the stakes have gotten nowadays.

All right--it's clear that the whole store is broken...I'm sure Tom is reading this. I just tried to buy the supporter upgrade again for the 7th time and yep...got the white page again after hitting the "Order!" button.

Did you get a blank white page after hitting the order button? If so, your order didn't even go through. Like I said in my last post and I think the posts before mine make this clear too, it looks like the entire NG Store is broken and has been since yesterday.
