  • Hi everyone!
    Please remember that this is a beta test of the new community and we will be updating it over the coming weeks and months.

    Regarding search, we are working on that now.
    @Walker_Alexandria those are all good points and we will bring them up!

    Thank you!

    With pictures I found you can "drag and drop" photos directly off your pc. It the code looks odd but just put your message right beneath the photo code. Also you can "copy and paste" pictures directly off the internet including photos on Facebook. Not sure if you knew this already.

    You have got to be joking! A separate log in for each pet? You took the heart and soul of a beautiful one of a kind site and threw it away when you didnt save our pet profiles!! I'm just flabbergasted by all of this! We all want our pet pages like before, even if that means having to redecorate and redo them..I just want you to know there are so many people so upset who have heard from us who belonged to the original Dogster/Catster who are not interested in even looking over this place once they heard the pet profile pages were not preserved!! I read were so many are saying their angels died all over again! And I have to agree with them...you took the heart and soul of the sites away and gave a a two penny mockup of so many other sites out there already....I'm disappointed...but I hope you take into consideration what has occurred and let us have our own pets individual pages where we can decorate them, post photos of them, do diary entries and not have to have separate log ins for each pet....otherwise you have lost thousands of pet owners who were willing to pay a subscription...your lose.

    I seriously wonder if anyone working on this new site even looked at the old one to get an idea of what the site had to offer... Or if they just googled to see what cookie cutter sites were out there that they could duplicate... cause like Mary said this is a "two penny mockup of so many other sites out there already" Another facebook knock off.... Nothing special that will draw in the thousands and thousands of people who used to have accts. Heck today I found 2 phone apps for dog lovers that are a lot closer to dogster then this will ever be

    Who has my name Peter Parker than I paid years for?? I don't want LISA Parker to appear and when I went and tried to change it, it said it was not available. Also, how do we add pictures of our dogs? There is nothing personalized here. I feel like all this is just a slap in the face compared to what Dogster was. I cannot believe this is the best that you guys could come up with. You literally put ZERO money or ZERO thought into this site. And to think I buy your publication every month!! No more!!

    **Need to be able to alter font size (not just the format option) and font style in the Comment editor

    Also NEED line spaces . All the text runs together and when you put in a line space it is ignored.**

    Also the Link generator in the Editor does not work.. the box vanishes

  • Dogster admin, thanks for checking in. Thanks for listening to the feedback and for the reminder that things are still changing and improving as we go along. From what you said, we need separate logins (i'm going to say: booooooooooo) for each pet. As you can see, some have quite a few pets so separate logins for each one is tedious. Can you tell us if you would be willing to consider allowing one account for all pets? I'm no tech guru but it's what we had before. We had this functionality and it would be great to have it again.

    I would love it if the font could be changed too. It's light and small for these old eyes LOL

    Also, want to say that I LOVE that a draft is saved. That's pretty cool :-)

  • I set up my page but my original page is in here as Barbara Levine and we can't access it because the email that we used to use is no longer working so we could not reset the password. If there is any way to reactivate that also we would like to do so.

  • also I am not sure how to find the other members. I found some by looking at activity. How do I find the other members?

    It would be nice to be able to bookmark our special groups and special forums
    The threads when bookmarked get totally lost.
    Could we have "My Groups" and "My Forums" in the right hand menu and be able to bookmark entire Groups/Forums to it.

    Basically I want to be about to find the whole group and the whole forum. The thread list totally loses the bookmarkers.
    We need more emotes.

    There is a a bookmark button. Under welcome next to a thread of an individual you want to remember, including your own, there is a star, click on it, it will turn yellow. Then you will find all your places you saved under bookmarks.

    Love,

  • Hi again, everyone!

    We will take your comments re: trying to add more pets to one profile seriously and see if / what we can do.
    @BaileyLevine, please private message me with more details and I’ll see what I can do.
    You can search for other members by using the search function and, in some cases, advanced search. See details on our FAQ page.
    @Flicka_Lucas_Cleo @Blaze , good point about the Bookmarks! Will add that to FAQ.

    Thank you!

  • ooooh I have another suggestion! I find this helpful in other groups/forums. Quoting someones post and replying to it. For example:

    "We will take your comments re: trying to add more pets to one profile seriously and see if / what we can do" posted by dogster admin.

    Thank you! I think that would be a BIG addition and probably one of the biggest, if not the biggest complaint. Appreciate it!

    P.S. I like quoting someone else's post :-)

    Sorry but your search feature pretty much needs a major overhaul. Most of us to do not know the names of the people who own the pets and some when they signed up used fake names, so unless they are on another social media site where we can ask them how they signed up searching for their name is useless. Searching for The dogs name is mostly useless unless they changed their name on their profile or they put their name in each comment they way I have been trying to do.

    Also searching for groups by using the search box you now have is basically useless.. For instance if you type in the word angel to find groups where angel pets are featured you get a hundred posts from groups that are not angel groups. The advance search in this case is of no help because there is no option to search for group names

  • Sent you a private message Dogster Admin! Thank you for listening.

  • PippiPippi Alcoa, TN ✭✭✭✭

    Still new and poking around, but one thing I would like to see is rather than under the welcome thread a way to have my pet "profiles" under my page. More like sub-profiles under my account that you view from my account page. If you have more than one pet and want to give each a unique profile, having to come up with multiple email addresses could get difficult. So sub-profiles would be nice and preferable.

    By having sub-profiles or something like that we could still track pet birthdays, gotcha days, rainbow bridge anniversaries. Short of that, do you have suggestions on good ways to track things like that? That is one thing I really liked about the old dogster/catster. I could log in and see who (pets) was having a birthday, etc.

    I don't know, maybe a master calendar where we could go in and add our pets' special dates if nothing else. I really want to be able to help my friends celebrate, and I want it to be easy to see when something is coming up.

    This kind of falls under the same as above, but I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to be able to see a calendar or even a list in groups that would show upcoming pet birthdays, gotcha days, and rainbow bridge anniversaries. Again, I want to celebrate with my friends and it would be impractical to go read through bunches of welcome posts and have to remember dates.

    Another thing I would love to see is a list of the groups I belong to on my profile page. Could something be added perhaps under the inbox on the right?

    I'm very happy to have community sections back, but I think you have missed the mark a little. Dogster and Catster were about the pets, not the people behind them. There are plenty of sites out there for people to interact. By doing away with the individual pet profiles you have gotten rid of a BIG part of what dogster and catster were about and what made them so unique. I realize we may not be able to have it like it was before, but I hope ways can be found that might help us to better make it about the pets again.

    Thank you for allowing us to give some feedback and make requests.

    Blaze .. yes I know the Bookmark Button is there. But it would also be far easier to have our OWN groups/forums in the menu on the RHS .

    That was what I meant..and probably did not explain it well enough !! :)

    Most sites have that. Not just a total chaos of bookmarks !

    Okay. Just ran into something a little annoying. I found a couple of friends on here and went to say hi on their profiles. Did the first one with no trouble. Did the second one and got a message saying I tried to do two posts in 30 seconds and I have a spam block now. REALLY?!! Guess I will have to drag my feet in finding others and saying hello.

    Have another question. In the welcome thread, I've added a post with all four of my dogs. It allows me to add/tag one breed. It looks like I can add a second breed and that shows up on the line, but when I click save, only the first breed is saved. How can I add the second breed?

    I see now where we can add events under groups. So I can at least add my pet birthdays and such there. Would be nice to be able to add something like that on my own profile. It would also be nice to be able to make an event a recurring event. So I don't have to add it each year for something like that. I would still love to be able to log on and see what pets throughout the site are celebrating birthdays and such.

  • @Pippi you should be able to edit the post and add as many breeds as you want in the box! Let me know if that doesn't work. I will ask about your calendar suggestion.

    Oh Pippi I just got the one minute block too... that is irritating as all get out... If you are responding to 2 or 3 different posts in one thread what are you supposed to do... respond to them all in one big run on paragraph. We used to have parties on The old dogster where you could be posting ever 10 or 15 seconds that would really put a stop to any decent parties

    OK ...... I do not know what people expected ?? THIS is exactly what I expected !
    How about we to start trying to help then build something better.? We have made beginning here just doing what we have
    ALL sites are more or less coded and programmed on a "faceless" pattern now. Most have add on facilities... I read about this forum software... it has a potential.

    They never promised us pet pages... they DID say they would move the Community over..,and they have.
    No.. you do not have to like this format .. none of us do... but maybe we CAN... if we TRY we can make something workable

    This is a BETA site... here for the reason of starting to iron out the many problems.

    It is not going to happen in a day or a week or a month. Some things will not be possible... but they ARE trying...

    More than can be said if the previous two owners.

    Lets put the gallows and ropes away ... lets TRY and make it happen.. or at the very least.. go down in the trying

    This will probably go down like a lead balloon but so be it

    Thank you for bring Dogster/Catster back. It's really appreciated.
    We would like to be able to post using our pets name instead of our own. I think most of us want to stay anonymous while posting. Besides, we all know each other by our pet's name.
