Stars and Comments Header

Adding stars and comments to Flipnotes is a great way to engage with artists! Here’s how you can add stars and comments to Flipnotes.

 

Getting Started

Firstly, you’ll want to log into Sudomemo. You can do this by navigating to your Creator’s Room on your console, then by following the prompts to login. You can also login to Sudomemo Theatre by clicking “Login” at the top right.

 

What are Stars?

Stars are a way to show artists that you like their Flipnotes. The more stars you add, the more you like their Flipnote. There are 5 different types of stars:

  • Yellow Stars: Free; you can give up to 10 yellow stars per Flipnote.
  • Green Stars: Earned are very easy to obtain. Given to Flipnotes you really like.
  • Red Stars: Earned and are easy to obtain. Given to Flipnotes you love.
  • Blue Stars: Earned but are slightly rare. Given to Flipnotes you adore!
  • Purple Stars: Earned but very rare! Given to Flipnotes that have changed your life!

Every user gets an unlimited amount of yellow stars, but you’ll need to earn green, red, blue, and/or purple stars before you can use them. These stars are called: Spendable Stars.

 

Earning Spendable Stars

You can earn spendable stars by:

  • – Winning a Weekly Topic
  • – Reporting Flipnotes that violate our Terms of Use
  • – Opening a Ticket and crossing your fingers
  • – Keeping a lookout on our Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts

 

Please note the stars given to you by other users do not count towards your spendable stars bank. Those stars are shown in your Creator’s Room Statistics, located at the top of your Creator’s Room on console, or under the About section on Sudomemo TheatreNon-spendable Stars

 

You can view your spendable stars in your Creator’s Room under “Your Stars” on your console.
