TCS and Dogomania Members  

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
This thread is going to be a bit unorthodox by TCS standards, but I feel it is a necessary step at this time.

First off to any Dogomania members joining here, welcome. We are pleased to have you as TheCatSite members.

If you are activating a membership to be able to view a particular thread in question that you have heard about on your site, I am sorry, but that thread has been removed from the public boards for all members. One of our members has violated our rules by directly linking to your site when complaints were posted. I would like to apologize of behalf of TheCatSite, as some of the posts in that thread were not very kind to members of your site. We don't allow that sort of thing to stand here. Let me also thank KJS and Chaos for posting here in a calm and well-mannered way when they must have been upset after reading a thread containing many negative comments about their 'home'.

I am posting this thread to make certain that all understand TCS's position regarding retribution caused by this thread. If you are joining here to participate in some type of board war, our moderating team will be doing everything possible to keep this off our forums.

And, more importantly, if you are a TCS member looking to join Dogomania to stir up trouble on their board, please understand that you are putting your membership here at risk.

If you have any questions, feel free to post them or PM me.

Deb,
That was very well written. I don't know the whole story nor do I want to get involved. I just thought you should be commended for the above as it is very well done and I think you deserve to be complimented on that.

I agree with Laura, Deb. I have no idea what has transpired as I was away from the boards for some time but I'm glad that the Mods are taking a positive stand on what seems to be a negative situation. There's no need for any trouble especially between animal lovers...

Thanks Deb, I for one appreciate knowing where this stands, and having talked a bit to KJS, understand where she's coming from too. Thanks again!

I read about the whole fiasco over at Dogo. I have been a member both here and there for quite a while. It's too bad that people bash other message boards just to get a rise. Thanks for posting Deb.

I would like to make is understood that a "forum war" was not meant to be started.

It's not only too bad, it's also against the rules here. We do not allow flaming, period. Whether that be against another member here or another message board, we don't allow it. And we especially don't allow complaints about other boards with names named and links given. All it will do is promote board wars, which are unproductive at best, destructive at worst. (Again, our apologies for not seeing the thread before it got to this point...)

We have far more in common with Dogomania than we have in differences. I've looked around over there, and while some of the methods of delivery differ, the message is very similar. Both sites promote Spay/Neuter. Both sites are strongly against back yard breeding, pet stores, and puppy/kitten mills. Both sites do their best to educate people to be responsible pet owners, and give the best advice possible for the benefit of the animal. TCS is more conservative when it comes to moderating, but every board has its own rules and practices which is totally up to the board's owner.

That is correct, because if a moderator had read your first post early on, the thread would have been yanked immediately.

All I have to say is whatever everyone is talking about here makes me want to share something with all of you.

You see, I have learned, from experience, that bad-mouthing, put downs, criticizing, etc. is not worth the risk of losing your membership here at TCS.

If you think about whatever got you ticked off in the first place, you won't even remember what it was, and if you do, it probably isn't even important anymore, or ever was.

Let's all just treat others how we want to be treated.

I love this place too much to ever chance that again.

I do know what happened with that, and I was equally upset about it. But you guys are right, theres no need to bash another board. The messages are the same, even if we disagree with how they were delivered. Its truly no different than being face to face with someone, you are not always going to like how everyone relays a message. Thanks to the MODs for keeping this site friendly and free of the flaming and bashing that will cause more harm than good.

It's a shame this happened

I've been a member at dogo long enough to know how the mods handle situations and believe me it's no different than here. You do something to insult or hurt a member or guest you get worned you do it again another worning and again then they either ask u to leave for awhile or they delete the account. They notice someone signed up for more than 1 name on the same ip address all acccounts registered on the address are frozen(I think maybe thats another board). People go both places for 1 simple reason...they love animals. Difference is dogo is mainly for dogs and tcs is mainly for cats. Haven't people heard the saying "if u don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all"?

Yes I'm a dogo member I admit it but I joined cuz of my kitten...not to bash anyone...if u don't like dogo then don't go over there it's that simple

The situation is over, it has been handled and this subject is now closed. There is no need for further lectures from either side.
