We Would Appreciate Some Support.....

We are very proud and honored to announce that we were chosen to be among the first five blogs for the first Blog of the Month Contest at The Cat Site!
Our very dear friends
The Ballici were chosen too! How exciting is that!!! The other contestants are Goma, Rescue, and Harry.

The not so exciting part is that NO ONE voted for us so far
. Not that we want to necessarily WIN but a CLOSE call would be nice.
Like: Winner 100 votes, The Cat Realm 97 votes.

Not 0 - as in: zero! - votes...
+++ Breaking News: Thanks to you we are getting votes!!!! +++

To vote, go here to register - it's easy and free.

Oh, don't cry!

I went and tried to register but it wouldn't recognize my verification letters (same as Rocky, I guess). Maybe something's wrong at the site?

We can't even figure out the site.

The butler is your neighbor? And you share the cats? What a nifty home(s) Karl, Mrs Oz & Tintin have.

Hello everyone, Anne from TheCatSite.com here. Thank you all so much for visiting.
Now, our software can be a pain at times (way too sophisticated, I'm afraid), but, as far as I can see, it *should* let you vote right away. You don't have to make a single post to make this work.

In order to look into this, I would need some usernames. Also, if you could please let me know where the problem is (i.e., can you log in? can you not get past the registration form?)

If you could please drop our admin an email with the details at admin@thecatsite.com, I'm sure she'll sort you out right away.

Thank you and I am sorry about the hassle!

Purrrs...

Anne

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oh, we signed up but we can't vote yet...aparently we hafta wait fur dem to send da stoopid comfirming email...

Anne at TheCatSite.com said...

Anne from TCS here again,

I think I found out what the problem was. Other than the validation code, we also had new users on moderation, due to a recent trolling attack. You won't believe how many nasty people out there are targeting cat forums :( They think it's funny to show us nasty pictures of really really bad stuff.

Anyway, I just manually approved all new registrations and for now switched off the moderation for new registrations. Fingers crossed, we'll be able to leave it switched off for a while. If we get attacked again, we may have to get it back on, at which case there will be a small delay in activation.

Everyone who registered, you can go ahead and case your vote now here:
http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=181004

Please make yourself at home at our boards and take a minute to introduce yourself in our "New Cats on the Block" forum, or just to browse around. We have a lively community of cat lovers and you are more than welcome to have a link back to your blog in your signature.

Thank you for your patience, and my apologies for the confusion.

Anne

Cat Naps in Italy said...

If I had read these comments first, it would have saved a bit of time. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't vote and also thought it was my letter verifacation thing. Turns out that you have to wait a while after you register.

Will wait for my confirmation email...
Love,
Opus
ps. We all love you guys. It is just that we didn't know about this site or contest.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

You weren't kidding. Some bloggers did figure out the site and you're ahead at the moment.

You must have a very interesting story about your life in the desert. Hmmmm. Do we have a CCSI mystery coming on this subject?

Sweet Praline said...

It's very difficult to figure out this site. It took us a long time to finally find the way to register and then it took forever to find the contest! Good luck!

Asta said...
