BOY OH BOY IS SHE MAD! She sent this message to them and thought ya'll like to read it.
To: Dogster HQ
I, along with other people, are extremely upset with all the stuff you keep adding AND taking away from us. The new change, letting us know when our pals make any time of comment to anything on anypup's page, is totally stupid. We're notified already when they make a comment to a photo or diary entry that we have commented on. We don't need to know when they take a breath or go out for a potty break! OH MY GOD! Seriously!!
Then you took away our instant messaging so now we can't talk to our pals all over the world, that we made THROUGH Dogster. I still don't understand the reasoning or logic of that one.
And then, we're not getting ANY zealies for voting in the photo contest like we have every since the contest started 6 years ago!!
I'm 53 years old, I'm not a kid, and don't feel we need to be subjected to the constant changes you THINK are good for the website or us. Its beginning to be too much like Facebook. If I wanted to know everything everyone is doing, I'd go over there.
I know you're saying that if you don't like it, leave. Unfortunately, I think I'm going to have to. For $19.95 a year, its not worth all the constant changes you are forcing us to accept without our input before the changes are made.

To Doo's Mom,
We 100% agree with you, but please don't leave Dogster on account of this. We enjoy being pals with you and if you leave, Dogster doesn't suffer, we do.
I think we all need to bark our displeasure with this change. We're off to email HQ.
Your pals, Riley, Caileigh and Dad
We need to flood the HQ with our displeasures. And perhaps include copies of these comments/diaries Anonymously, of course...), Yes if we leave then HQ wins in a way, cause they get to keep things the way they want. We could all just become non-plus members, that way we can still be pals, post diaries, etc. Maybe less $ in the coffers will speak to them!
I think that the majority of us pals, (at least those in my circle) are not so called spring chickens, and we are all mature grownups who can hopefully take a deep breath and try to stay rational, while we try to get this mess cleaned up.
Woofs to that, growlmy!(and all our pals)
Hopefully when they see your letter and everyone's complaints they will go back to the way things were...
But please don't leave us, we love you!!!
I 'grees wif Petey. PLEASE DON' LEAVE US! Maybe HQ will see they made a big MISTAKE and change it back.
Pweeze du nod weabe us, Doo an' Austin an' Ms Wou Ann!! Momma an' me, Zaidie, WUFF dis Dogster pwace an' ALL our pup palses!! Dat meens yu, tu!! If HQ duz nod wissen tu us...well, we will fink 'bout dat when da time comeses!! Anyfur, du nod use da bark board if it r makin' yu nutzo!! An' du nod furged tu breef!!
Please don't leave Doo and Austin.You make dogster fun and would be missed. I know the change in the comment's seem kinda strange.Mommy is the same age as your's and think they should go back to how it was, it was better.Fur's are getting to confused now. But don't leave.
It is too much like Facebook which my momma doesn't even have anymore. :(
I think they are trying to confuse us and get us to click on more pages-- more clicks equals more money for Dogster.
If they wanting to foster pup's being able to meet new pups, then why can't you see whose diary it is that the pup was commenting on? I think that is a bogus reason, and the real reason in money, money, money. As it now works, it takes you to the diary entry, but you cannot tell what dog wrote it.
Please don't leave-- we'd miss ya something awful!!
yes, it's dumb. Seems like they are trying to copy Facebook. Only at facebook you can choose whether or not you want others to know who you interact with and when. I find this new feature oversteps a boundary. I don't find it ok.
Oh my dog, we have been so busy with school and hadn't been on lately and HATE, HATE, HATE all that clutter and stuff, too! Good grief!! Please don't leave Dogster, I know we are really busy during the semester, but we sure do love when we have down time and stop by to see everyone!!!
Please don't leave!!! Maybe if we all voice our concerns they'll fix it! I'm off to go e-mail HQ right now!
Bol, you're absolutely right! Actually, I thought all this comment stuff was a glitch. This is lousy if it's a new change!
We agree! Way too much stuff being posted!!!! HQ! ARE YOU LISTENING?????????
Not to say that when the new Dogster feature started our old codes for our backgrounds cannot be used anymore unless you want your page with a hateful white center covering your beautiful background
Aw, Doo-mommy, don't give up on Dogster! My mommy is way older than you, BOL!!, and she's learned that changes on websites are 1) always temporary and 2) nevfur work right the furst time. They always come with bugs, and fixing the bugs makes new bugs, but in the end, if evfurrybody can be patient and keep their sense of humor, some good stuff gets done. As long as we can all still find each other and say Woof, that's the really important thing.
Doo, we are frustrated too! We just wrote our letter to HQ, and posted it on my page. Can you reply to this, so we can see your dogster number? Or could someone tell me what Doo's dogster number is?! Thanks!
Just one hint. Mom simplifies this by corraling my favorite pals, then clicking on the orange box that says "community" and then "recent corral activity." That's organized so you don't have to look at that looonnnnnggggg bark board.
We are in TOTAL agreement with you about the changes. Everything everybody does, we know about it! We even did the Corral thing, not much help!
I emailed them over a week ago about the zealies for voting and about the IM. All they are doing is taking, taking, taking. They ignored my mail. I think that is just rude.
