This is from a doggie friend in our group Pen Paws, her name is Minister Misty...we thought we would share with our friends, the fight is on to get dogster/catster back and we all need to help....please read!!!!

as we all know,dogster and catster has fallen silent.
groups are either dead or dying.
founders are struggling to keep their groups alive,but it's so hard.
now i'm gonna fight this...
i want our beloved site's back and i want the spirit back we one had.

first thing i did is start a facebook group called fight for our site's,where facebook site members can talk with me and eichother about the site,the how and why they think it's fallen silent and what we can do as a team to get it back on dogster and catster.
and to get to those that left us to go to facebook and to reason with them to come home.
or at least just play here and there,because i do that and it's not hard at all.

Hugs to you all that are still here!!!!we love you all

Xena and family

i'm also posting about our cause in the dogster and catster flus forum(in the friendly thread)
i would really apreciate it if you would sniff those out and post there.

also we as a group have came up with our first idea.

THE POST REACTION EXPERIMENT....

this means that you enter your groupmail at least once a day(more would be great)
than see what members of the groups your in have posted and than repond to their mesagge.
i see that this is the first paw to make a group feel welcome and open again.
it's a fact if members don't respond to a groupmessage,other members don't want to post in a group no more.
because they will think "what is the point,if no fur responds"
and they are right.
and than...
wham a dead silent group.
it's shame.

i'm doing it in my own group and i see members i havent seen in two years and i see new members post also.
so it is a succes,if we are doing it together!

so who will join this experiment?
are you a dogster and catster true to the soul?

also BITU from C&D cruiselines,who is the creator of C&D newsletter is making an article about our cause.
and from what i heard the group Shih Tzus and Friends United~ ยป will also make an article in their newspaper thread called THE RAG.
so i hope to get some more furs attention.
thank you bitu and Shih Tzus and Friends United~.

i also made a forum thread in the catster friendly forum,well my brofur baba did.

i also am thinking about a dogster/catster group that is dedicated to how to run your group.
with tips,idea's and other knowledge about how to start a group and make it booming.
but that in the making.
because i need administrators that are either groupfounder of active groups,or administrators that work along in an active group.
are you one of them,please pawmail me.

i hope furs will pawmail me with idea's and get this out to the public,because i can't do this alone.
dogster and catster is a community,so we need eichother to change things.
are you willing to help me.

big wuv,you friend...minister misty!

We miss our friends too (although we haven't been around much either) and welcome all ideas on how to get things going again and also ideas on how to bring the *missing* back to Catster. We're not on FB and can't participate over there but hope Minister Misty's group is a success. xoxo Kaci

It'sh furry sad, but it ish basically because the site wash sold lasht year to a company who ish not interested in keeping our site the way it wash, and hash their own agenda. We hate hate hate the changes, and did yew know that one of those changes is that nothing has to be safe for a seven year old any more?! We didn't know that either, but it'sh true - those values ish no longer part of the guidelines here any more. It'sh good yew are trying to help, but Meowmy hates FB and took her page down a long time ago - we are furry much an anti-FB family and can't pawticipate there. I wish we could all move our pages to a new site, with all their content intact, and we could all resume the wunnerpurr times we used to have here. Concatulations on being a DPD too - we always looks furwards to holidays so we can exchange cards wif yer family and our other furriends in Pen Paws. Yew ish all so shweet.

My brofur and I still log in to a nice group we started 3 years ago, and meow almost efufry day - that is the only group we go to any more and sometimes we meow in our diaries - Meowmy will never take our pages down, as long as the site is here, but we are looking into other sites. The reason people have left is because the new owners do not understand what we are about and Catster/Dogster magazine is what they are pushing. We want no part of that because there have been shocking, vulgar, and very upsetting things in it, and it is 180 degrees away from what the spirit of this site used to be about. Those upsetting articles are why many, many people have fled - HQ has not listened to us about this topic and they keep pushing the magazine - its furry sad that we can't do more but honestly, the new owners don't seem to care about our opinions at all. We cherish all the wunnerpurr memories we have here and the furiends we have made - we just wish they had left things the way they were......
