My Meowmy is thinking of starting a magazine called "Catster Life". It will be about the latest mews and MOLs on Catster, what's happening in the groups, games to pawlay, Catsters in the Spotlight, funny or kewt pictures and videos, book reviews, true cat stories, and lots of fun! If you want to help with things fur the magazine (such as articles, pictures, profiles, or just tips on good webpages) or you just think this is a good idea and want to offer a purr of encouragement (always appreciated!), pawlease post here and let us know what you think. way to go

P.S. I won't need to contact Catster HQ about any of this, will I? I mean, it's not really that big and it'll have some stuff in it that's NOT from Catster. What do you think? shrug

That sounds like a cute idea. Are you keeping it here on caster? If not then you might have a problem using the caster name and contents outside of caster. Good luck. kitty

Samson, I really like the idea. Fun and cute stuff is always appreciated. I'm not clear about the technical details. Are you posting your magazine in your diary or in a group that you're making or are you planning to have it on a blog or send it to furs with email? Sorry about all the questions, just thinking here thinking
I'm pretty sure that Catster owns the content here. But if you read something interesting in a furs diary, I think you can repost it somewhere on Catster. Might want to send the author a quick pawmail checking if they mind if you use their story... Purrsonally I am not friends with all cats here and I don't read all diaries. So it would be interesting to read about other furs. About their lives, adventures, maybe health tips, challenges they have overcome, cute and funny things they have written.

Okay, so I won't reprint articles on Catster... except maybe link to a few funny photos or videos. Have you seen the one of the kitty "walking" her owner? MOL` big laugh

I was going to start a group fur it, only Catster's got fleas big time at the moment so I can't create any groups right now. Otherwise I would have the magazine in a group. Maybe I could upload it to Scribd and just link to it here??

I was thinking of reading diaries, especially the DOTD and DDPs, and requesting the furs' permissions to reprint any funny or educational or thought-provoking stuff they have written. I would also have a thing about what's going on in some of the more popular groups, any breaking news from any furs, etc. Anything of interest, basically, with maybe some links to Catster articles and MOLz.

Any thoughts? thinking

Actually it does sound like a really good idea especially for new kitties to know were the parties are or what groups are having fun. You could do a write up on a feature group. Also our cartoons, what's been happening for the last week, what diaries were featured for the week gone, the Cats of the day and the week. I know Catster has them on the front page but if you don't check in everyday you may miss them. I think it'll be a great idea. Maybe Catster could make a thread just for you. But I have to admit there is a lot of work involved in it. It'll be almost like a full time job with no pay.confused

Okay, since I STILL can't create a new group, I have decided to recycle one I already have which has had no activity since I started it awhile ago.

Raza, those are some good ideas! way to go I was thinking sort of along those lines myself, but I hadn't got it quite straight in my head it will be a lot of work and writing, but if anyfur wants to help me, I will reward them with rosies and stars and maybe zealies... thinking

I hate to bother HQ even more than I am, cause I know a lot of other furs are contacting them about various glitches malfunctions. At the moment I'm having trouble with Catster not realizing I'm an admin in one of the groups and not letting me into one of the admin tools! *sigh* confused

Any more ideas, anyfur? I will add threads to the group as I think of them.
