OK!... I'll admit it.. I still have a profile on that Bear profile website... You know - the one dictated by "A Bear Named Sue"...

I got a mail from the site today, titled "EUROWOOF.COM Profile Recall" !

Yikes, I thought but continued to read the mail itself,

Hello Søren!

I contact you because you didn't check your messages sent to your profile on EUROWOOF.COM for more than a week. We miss you. I join your login informations again and I hope to see you online very soon :

My Profile Name : bearhugx
My Password : [my password in cleartext] (so last century!)

If you have a personal web site thank you to support EUROWOOF.COM

EUROWOOF.COM profile gallery is updated every day. So please, visit often.

Big Hugs!

Greg, webmaster. http://www.EUROWOOF.COM
I did visit the site last weekend, so I wondered what message that had been stored there for more than a week, that I hadn't noticed...
Apparently somebody wrote a "Grrr!" in my guest book on Dec 8th (which is 4 days ago) - and that was apparently the message that Greg wanted me to remember...

Basically I'm not there very often, and I've been thinking about removing the profile all together... But - what site would you guys then recommend I use?...

Woof . . . Euro or Otherwise

There is a bit of desperation in that message. It sounds like he's not getting traffic and wants to encourage you to be a daily visitor. If it was a busy site he wouldn't want so much traffic.

I cannot recommend any other sites like this because I don't use them. Perhaps I'm missing out but I just don't think I would benefit.

Hugs from Denver

Since you're European, I suggest bearwww.

I tend to stick with 411 out of sheer desperation. Have got a few nibbles lately so may well stick with it...

I like BearCiti, but I don't think there's much of a European userbase there - one of those chicken-and-the-egg problems. I also like BearForest.

Frankly, I wish Bear411/EuroWoof/BearWorld's servers would die in a fire. Along with all the backups. ;)

I haven't logged onto 411 in a year and I get these messages every couple of weeks. I ignore them. There is also Bear Front. But I've thought of going back to 411 because I've got friends there that aren't anywhere else.

On another subject, I love the card. Very cool. Thanks guys.

Hence the reason I wish B411 would die in a fire - then they'd HAVE to go somewhere else.

Very soon, there will be a new Bears' social networking site called Bearbook. At the very top, click on "Pre-Register". Hopefully, that will give you a sneak preview of things to come once they roll out the beta version of the website.
