We’ve asked you to fill out the very short survey because Google told us, you are between 18-24, male and a pop listener. We never believed that.

So here are the results of our survey and we can say, people who fill out surveys on starfrosch are:

  • Between 35-44
  • male
  • listen to electronic and rock

You probably look like in the above picture (that’s what our instinct says).

Have a close look at the results.




Conclusion: Never believe the Google algorithm, it doesn’t rock and has no groove.

We recently launched a poll to see what you would like to have next. Dating, Shop, Job or Nothing new. Thanks for voting.

Nothing new?

We’re happy to tell you, most of you are already happy and don’t want something new, the rest of you want a Dating Community followed by a shop. We’re afraid, that won’t happen for the moment.

We already checked the Dating Community software, it exists and we could launch this within days, but honestly, that’s too much work. Especially we’re afraid dealing with Nigerian scammers and stuff like that.

Buy and donate

What we’ve done very carefully, is setting up an affiliate shop. Everything you’re interested in from can be found there. The best thing. It’s not more expensive than from Amazon, but every thing you buy, we earn 7-14%. This way you can buy your stuff at Amazon and donate to us. It’s, the U.S. Shop.


So head over to our, funky buy and donate shop. Thanks a lot for donating.
