    This site sucks. No way to get back photos and info.

    @CatsterAdmin it's the end of October and my fur sister Mayhem and I, and our mommy realize that good things take awhile to happen but...we have been away from here now for a couple weeks and came back on tonight only to find that nothing much has changed or happened. It is still all disjointed...and now it's even harder to find friends or posts we were following. Just a friend's list with small photos and friends names would help the most, on our profile pages...is there any way we could at the very least have that? On the OC we used to be able to friend people as they joined or added a kitty by perusing new additions , their profiles and pictures as they created them. Poor mommy can't find anything here..it was easier when we first tried a month or so back. Looks like you're losing ground versus fixing things...trying to be patient but it's really getting worse instead of better...>^..^<

    After not being able to get in for a VERY long time, I'm wondering what is going on? I've been reading comments and we can no longer have individual cat pages? This is very disappointing and very sad. :'(

  • MILO_BLUE_EYESMILO_BLUE_EYES Member Posts: 16,194 ✭✭✭✭

    @Caspurr ya know it'z rough, we try ta come 'n tryz to explore ta see'z if'n we can find anymorez o' our pawsome furiendz from OC. We seen sum come in 'n sush as urselfz, can't find wayz round. I haz learned how to get to me groupz 'n one than', iz eazier here ta post picciez! 'n so I wanna belief in da goo'. Another than' @CatsterAdmin since sum o' our furiendz don'tz know how to change dere namez to dere kitz name, 'n so I see @Deanna Coleman 'n I haf no clue whofur iz her kittyz. Iz hard. Again, as waz sez, we know'z it takez time, 'n we do purrpreciate our owners fur not makin' da entire Community go bye bye. I don't like ta complain, so as long as I see me furiendz, on'y if'n jus a few, dat will be'z what I willz purrpreciate. @The_Wild_Ones did ya'll get ur probz ironed out? I noticed sumtimez we doez haz ta 'log' back in. I wud jus' as well ta stay logged in. We will see, but I do like to look on da pawsitive side.

    Milo Blue Eyes - we beez Toby Aragorn. Changed the profile, but as I have 6 (and 3 angels) and they were in different groups, this new format is not going to work since we can only be 1. And this site is extremely difficult to navigate.

  • MILO_BLUE_EYESMILO_BLUE_EYES Member Posts: 16,194 ✭✭✭✭

    @Toby_Aragorn I knowz but we gone gibz it chance 'n since da site iz still in Beta, we know stuff will happen. Thank U @CatsterAdmin fur keepin' us ina loop~ We r greatfur~ :)

    OMC... a friends list as such! Click on "Bookmarks" and there are all my friends, on a list. >^..^<

  • CaspurrCaspurr Member Posts: 27 ✭✭

    @CatsterAdmin the worst problem I have is that now people are using "Welcome" to post things that do not introduce their cats...it's has become a free for all, with messages about everything...UGH! Identifying it as "Welcome" versus..."Pet Introductions" or "Pet Profiles" would at least eliminate this... >^..^<

    .Also it's really hard to find a forum that is active. Is it possible to do sub catagories like putting all the feline names under cat breeds, so we can find the health, chat, and other forums easier. Please.
    Or even putting the active ones on the top as it's really hard to go through all the pages that are really really old to find what you are wanting. But I do think they need batching together. Also groups need to be easier to find. It maybe ok for some of us that have the groups already in our group list but for a new kitty it'll be really hard to find what is rocking. Purrs Mr D

  • The_Wild_OnesThe_Wild_Ones PhoenixMember Posts: 60,396 ✭✭✭✭

    @Toby_Aragorn what some have done is when they want to post as one of their other furs, they post a picture of the one who is posting! (We are collectively The_Wild_Ones, but if Charly, say, wants to post, shecan post her picture and others know it is coming from her.

    Hi all— thanks!!! As for calling that thread Pet Profiles vs. Welcome Post we haven't received a lot of feedback. If you have a preference, could you vote here?

  • MeepMeep Member Posts: 211 ✭✭✭

    I think whoever took over this site had no idea what they got. As a Catster I feel disappointed you did not also post your comments on Ted Rheingold's passing here., especially since you set this site up so Catster and Dogster are separate. I think you still do not understand that the disappointment and frustration with this site comes from the difficulty we are all having reconnecting as a community, that the format itself is the problem, and until the format is fixed, it is just sad to be here. -Meep

  • MILO_BLUE_EYESMILO_BLUE_EYES Member Posts: 16,194 ✭✭✭✭


    Yeah @Meep it iz sad da Catster 'n Dogster r separate~ Dis iz a dissapointment, but da @CatsterAdmin r listenin' to us 'n doez wantz ta hear from us. No it'z not da same, but since it'z still in Beta form, sum stuff can readilee be adjusted. Belvoir Media Group may not efen know who Ted iz, 'n how HE waz da developer o' Dogster in 2004 'n Catster in 2005. Anyfur, I haz hopez but we still haza alternate site whar we play.

    I am VERY disappointed in this new site. I spent work on more than one pet page, and I finally can get back on here, and all that is GONE. I was keeping some pages to keep the memory of pets I lost alive, as well as a page for my current pet. I will be looking elsewhere to find a place for a pet page now. This new layout is TERRIBLE. I'm not going through all the work just for my new pet "page" to be just a forum post. I won't be back.

    I am very disappointed with the new layout of the Catster site. I had created pages for my kitties, commemorating births, special events, everyday happenings, and deaths. Now, I cannot access those pages and it is very painful to no longer be able to access those pictures and memories. Catster, please reinstate the pet profiles. Premium members should be able to have that option.

    @CatsterAdmin My fur sister Mayhem, my mommy and I have not logged in here for over a month hoping things were going to get better if, we just gave it time, Today mommy took a break to see what's new and you know what...nothing is new! In fact, everything we look at the last posting date is days/weeks ago. I guess there is only one question now....is anyone even really trying to fix things and make this a site we can enjoy? I would rather have some truth then to keep hoping and being disappointed. >^..^< Caspurr, >^..^< Mayhem and our mommy Mary

    @CatsterAdmin We get it now....there is no news and no updates and no response from Admin. We have waited patiently for anything for months but...not even a response. I cannot figure out how to use this site so for now we are gone. Maybe we will come back someday to see if Catster was made any better but....ta ta for now! >^..^<
  • CatsterAdminCatsterAdmin Administrator Posts: 88 admin

    Hi @Caspurr ! Please let us know what questions we might be able to help you with! We are still working on updates.

  • CaspurrCaspurr Member Posts: 27 ✭✭
    @CatsterAdmin There are so many issues with this new Catster that it is hard to know where to start. I think the biggest is trying to find our friends on here or even having a record that we have friends. Months back many of us asked for a friends list so that we could quickly see our friends updates. I have two friends on here who are trying desperately to help me but....I cannot figure out how to see who is here and who is added, if anyone is added. Everything is jumbled. What was "welcome" is a hodgepodge. What was where we were creating our profiles is likewise another hodgepodge. We have starred several of our friends but....there is not way for us to see if they have come on or if they have had anything to say. There were a whole bunch of us who waited excitedly for Catster to come back...most of those now have given up and are gone. You have lost many of our top friends who came here saw what was and decided that the site has been manipulated and mangled beyond repair. There need to be Profiles...not welcomes, we need to be able to store a list of our friends...questions and blurbs need to be separate from the profiles and most importantly we need to be able to quickly find our friends and their activities. Everything I look at on here is either jumbled or ancient. I realize that fixing this site was not an easy task but, from what I can see over the months now little to nothing has been done to fix anything. Is anything ever really going to be fixed? I think some honesty with some of the loyal Catsters would be welcome. Sadly, there was a window of opportunity and I believe you all have now all but lost it. If you are satisfied with the site as it currently stands than I am happy you are pleased with the end project and wish you only well...but, it is not the site we waited for. >^..^<
