Timo's Tall Tales

This new feature - it's horrible

Well, just in time for Halloween Catster did something horrible. They added this new feature. In your friend updates and purrboard you are being notified of ALL the comments that ALL your friends made on ALL their friend's diaries AND photos. There is a gazillion of entries of all the comments posted. It makes the purrboard very crowded and looks horrible.

I don't care about ALL the diaries that my friends post on. Some of them are diaries of cats that I'm not even friends with. When I comment on somecat's diary, I read others comments too and that's enough. This is information overload. I don't need to know about every poopie or burp that everycat here makes. I just want to see if my friends wrote new diary entries or put new pictures up.


FRIENDS - all of you: If you don't like this you need to tell Catster. On your community homepage, in the lower right corner there is "Updates From Catster, A couple changes and fixes of note". You can write a comment right in there if you don't like this. Or if you do like it you can comment there too. Please do, so that Catster knows.

I'm not combing through all of these comments. I'm going to read a book instead.

I agree with you completely Timo. It's a real mess and I'm drowning in comments on comments on comments. No one know who wrote what! It's scary thinking our pals are sick when they aren't. It's too many pages of stuff, I won't go through them anymore. I sure hope they change it back soon.

Too much information running through my brain. Too much information... it's driving me insane.

We let HQ know how we feel. Hopefully they will start fixing some things that didn't need to be fixed but now need to be fixed back MOL. My head is spinning.

This is a nasty Halloweeny trick! It is not a treat!

I just told Beepers (or maybe it was Newman) that there are gremlins in the diary works, and I think that's the best explanation.

Is this Timo's diary, or Hazel Lucy's? Because it SAYS it's Hazel Lucy's, and those are all Hazel Lucy's pictures I see the sidebar, but she seems to think it's Timo's! And the URL says it's Timo's, too!

Maybe it's really mine? Or Toffy's or Ruben's?

I am going to write to Catster now about this. And I am going to try to write as myself - not as HL, or Ruben, or Timo. It could be difficult though.
