Where do you view The Cat Lounge entries from?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I experimented with a colored thread title yesterday in The Cat Lounge (to use as today's KatKwiz question). The trouble is, it only shows up colored if viewed in The Cat Lounge. And since it costs a lot of points to do this, and since it goes away in seven days, I wonder if it is worth the cost. This poll will answer that question right away!

What poll?

I don't see a poll!

I don't see a poll either...

I view them usually from the New Posts page.

polls up! I usually view them directly in the Cat Lounge

I voted other because I usually visit each forum and read thru the posts, then afterwards, I click "new posts" to see what's new for the rest of the day. I'm a flip-flopper!

I view them from the Cat Lounge, but I don't remember seeing anything unusual yesterday... so I would say nah, save your points!

I was about to type "my living room", when I saw your Poll, which I didn't understand at all.

I view all forums from "General Forums", except the fur pictures which I have to do from inside the Cat Lounge one.

That's how I should have voted. I hit new posts but then in another window look at the lounge. LOL

The Cat Lounge is part of the General Forums. If you are looking under General Forums then you would be looking directly under The Cat Lounge, rather than one of the other choices.

I always read everything from New Posts.

I go into The Cat Lounge to see them. I always go into the "rooms" to view posts.

I go to the cat lounge.

I view it from the cat lounge and I loved the cool color affects...

When I come on there are a few forums I look at specifically, then my subscribed posts, and thereafter I use New Posts.

Something else to keep in mind about the various thread features and other enhancements which can be bought: you'll see them all if you are using IE, but you won't necessarily see them in other browsers -- some features, yes, but not all -- so some of those features are lost on those of us who prefer other browsers. It obviously doesn't bother me enough to make me use IE, but you could be spending for an effect we won't all see. Just a thought.

Ok my mistake. Here is the link that I have in my bookmarks to get me to the forums:

I have an RSS feed to IMO, since I moderate there. Otherwise, I go to the individual forums to read threads, and only use "New Posts" to check for possible spammers/trolls.

When I worked as a mentor, I always started in New Cats, now though, unless I see a familiar name in the Bridge, I start in the Cat Lounge.

Cat Lounge for me.

One thing I will note with some of the coloring for thread titles...I really have a hard time reading the titles if they aren't contrasted correctly

For example I can read Katie's Question of the Day thread just fine, but unfortunately I cannot read the title of your CatQuiz

I go directly to The Cat Lounge but as you already know, I did not see anything different from colors or anything on quiz.
And of course I tried to guess how to do it but missed part of it since I could not see it.

I go directly to The Cat Lounge. I have to say the colored titles are hard to read and irritating (IMO). I usually don't open those threads to read.

I hope that you saw the post about different browsers. I think that is the answer.

That would make sense. I use Safari, not Internet Explorer.

I didn't see the different colors at first because I am using firefox so I am glad the browser limitation was mentioned - For the sake of curiosity I switched to IE view - which can be done right from the firefox browser with Internet Explorer in a Mozilla/Firefox tab.

I did not know if every one with firefox was aware of this option. I didn't know about this until recently - it helps with IE only pages and seeing various features like different colored titles here.


I got here through the cat lounge - general forum but I am new.


The communities I am more established in I often get to a thread from the links in my e-mail notifications - in communities where I have duties I often use new post feature for the same reason the moderator above mentioned . . . How well established one is as well as how frequently one visits would also serve to determine how the person arrives in any given thread. It seem like newbies or less than daily visitors would more than likely enter in through the front page - thus the cat lounge route.

i do something similar - my bookmark for TCS is actually for my subscribed threads. [i don't get an email notification, thru choice!]. after catching up on those, i go to the new posts next. if i get thru those, then i start looking around elsewhere.
i looked at the KatKwiz post in question - i use Camino [on a macbook] & i don't see the color change... but i see the colors & fonts of the usernames & titles. no glows or shadows, tho.
this was the one about avatars, right? to me, it shows up italicized...

I do that too, after the first visit I 'mark forums read', then come back to new posts later in the day.
