*gets his soapbox out from the corner of the room... climbs up... checks microphone... "tap tap"...*

Meowdy Furriends,

Some of the groups we are in are dyin' down. So we post over our own posts in tha Group Forum Topics, just to try to keep 'em goin', but not much response from others.

One furriend posts over her posts too and we bump into each other a lot!
"OUCH!" oops sorry! : ) You know who you are my black cat furriend!

And we are all like "Oh we gotta stop meeting like this!" MOL! MOL! MOL!

In one of mah favorite groups, they were postin' current questions in tha Most Recent Messages section, but nothin' new in the Group Forum Topics section, so I said why not put those questions up there? Nothin' : (

I have even started new Topics in tha Group Forum Topics threads and in some find I am the only cat talking... to myself : /

Which I am very good at might I add :D

Now I like to play wif mah tail like any other cat but I do get tired of chasing mah tail after a while.

We are in lots of active and fun groups and lots of stuff goin' on there.

Some say facebook is the problem, but I dont' think so because you can manage your time and choose where you go. I do.

Well that is my 2 cents worth and it is free ;D

So... Anybody got any suggestions for me on how to revive a group?

Huggs to Ya'll,
Platelicker

I haven't been on Catster much lately *glares at Mommy*. It's because she has gone back to work and she tells me that she just doesn't have the time. I sure do miss my furiends!

Actually we do check in every day so that we don't miss any important events - birthdays, bridge days, etc. but we don't go to the groups even though I'm an admin for a couple of them.

I've been on Catster for over 6 years and I've found that summer is always pretty slow.

Sometimes groups get kind of boring - I'm not meowing that the cats are boring - it's just that it's the same games and conversations over and over again. I know it's a lot of hard work to always be planning new and exciting things like trips and parties and other get-togethers, but that's what is the biggest draw.

Even though you don't see me in the groups very often, please remember that I'm thinking of you, my furiends.

Love,
Greyson

It would be really cool if the human would let us play all day here, but she is often at work too : ( *Scratches head* We just need to figure out how to get rid of that dreaded word work, then we might get what we want MOL.

I don't know what groups you have or even if I'm a member, but I have noticed that most groups are real slow lately. :/

I'm in and out of groups all day long but can never seem to catch anyone there. Most seem to check in early in the morning and my typist is early afternoon and evening.

Maybe if you posted here in your diary what groups...?

Yes, I've joined groups that have no activity or hardly any. I've been wondering about this lately!! Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

I'm not that active in groups, but a couple of my favorites are very slow now. I hope that will change after Summer. :)

We try to stay active in as many groups as we can but our typist says that it's hard to keep up with everything sometimes. And we like to try and keep up with diaries and celebrations too but that can be hard sometimes. I think school and summer might slow things down. Love your scratching!

Sorry you are bored. Too many friends are part time catsters now but what can we say.... we are these days too.

My gardening group is way slower than I thought it would be this time of the year. So I understand your pain.

It is sad when group's slow down. But I think it happens mostly in the summer. People are on vacation or just taking a break. With changes and fleas some people have left :( But I know it will get better and I bet fur's will come back from vacation's and break's and play again!Me and my cat sib's are in 4 of the group's you listed. Sometimes we don't have the time to play because of other thing's going on at home.
Love & Purr's, Eddy

Tap Tap stands on the soapbox hello me is ernie
I do both facebook and catster/dogster and have recently started to ask some why they are not here no more have told me why i have work hard to get one big family to come back on here with the promise that they will have lots of fun. Some other families wish they could come back and have big dreams of helping making catster busy again but are unable due to limited time or other reasons. I try to make catster and dogster rock i travel around and post when i have time. I miss all my pals that used to come on all i have now is memories of the what was. I pray that its only a summer thing and things pick up soon.
Thank you for listening to me

your message is loud and clear, Platelicker,and unfortunately it is true :( most of the groups we're in are inactive & our favourite group, TKC, has just a pawful of loyal members who keep it running.

Merlin, Mason and I think that life has gotten so busy for most Pawrents that Catster groups have been put to the side, yet a lot of these Pawrents are on Facebook constantly, daily detailing moment-by-moment activities that often are trivial, and also playing Facebook games :(

sad sad sighs for Catster groups, but conCATs to you for saying what so many of us kitties have been thinking ...

huggs and headbonks from your Aussoe friends,

Angel, Merlin and Mason

Great rant PL! I noticed that too and it's hard with the groups these days. That's why I check the diaries the most now but I've seen furs putting games in their diaries instead.

We have had so much problem with the speed of Catster for a while. Also the changes they keep making has driven a lot of Catsters to other places. Seems every time you get use to it they change it all again.

We have noticed a good number of newbies stay a short time then quit because they only seem to get 25 of so friends. Are the Catster's searching the newbies anymore??? Plus when invites have been sent they don't receive them. That's not the newbies' fault.

By the time you flounder through Catster your evening is shot. It seems it takes way to much time for reading and answering pawmail, giving thank you's for gifts, sending gifts, searching for new friends and invites much less group time.

I have more time to work with Catster bugs then a person who has a life outside of Catster. But even I get aggravated with all the time I have wasted waiting..

Hi Plate, We too have noticed the slow down at Catster and our groups *sigh* we very much miss how busy the groups were a few years ago. Even our own group BlacKat Lounge has slowed, members & admins that rarely post. Mom use to post at work on her lunch & break...the job she is at now she cant so we dont get here till evenings & most cats arent here then. We have many good memories of the parties & weddings that we went to and we go back and read the threads...mom still laughs at all the fun we had.

Much love & huggs to mew my dear furiend,
We love you Plate ~ Lucy K

Plate & Annie, We do we find the newbies to Catster? We will be glad to send them invites and welcome them to Catster if we know where to look.

Hugs & Purrs, Hen

Ms. Annie ((huggs)) as usual : )

Lucy my Darlin' we look back at fun events. I was the preacher at a couple of dog weddings too. So much fun! Easy to find 'cause they had their own pages. Tell me Love how do I get to your and Greyson's wedding again?

Our Pittbutton is over at BlacKat Lounge I do believe.

Purrty Pai Hen we don't know how to find newbies to Catster either. Some say they send friend request right away but I don't know how they find them. *looks under rug* Nope...

We have a 10 cat purrfamily but we try to run through each group once a day but don't always make it... 'cause sometimes I, The Platelicker, get ta talkin' too much :D

Beeg ((HUGGS))
