as to what prompted me to start these notes, see my comment on "does C2 care to help" down below ! 

-- severe --

(A-00) Fixing bugs or implementing simple, obvious improvements (like A-1, below) take WAY too long => care2's 'workflow' is in dire need of improvement.

(A-0) [ the "accounts-disappear'-bug ought be fixed for good.

(A-1) [since 'forever'] When spammers profiles are deleted their spam-postings ought be deleted, too, (semi-) automatically. This can be implemented with little effort and certainly would discourange spamming. (If there's any difficulty with *deleting* posts, alternatively, these posts could be marked-as-spam-for-every-user, so theey would be loaded, but their display suppressed.) -- 12/2010: There's some improvement with spamming in C2NN. But there's still posts by posters-who(se profile)-have-already-been-deleted. Same so in 03/2012. Same so at end of 04/2012.

(A-2) [12/2010] (many of my) comments-on-C2NN-disappear, repeatedly, some after I had received GreenStars for them. (this happened on at least 3 different occasions(days); while other comments on the same C2NN-posts did not disappear) -- this continues to happen, to several users, e.g. in Jan. 2011 ... and continues to happen, to several users, e.g. in April 2012. And again with many of my comments between 25.-28.04.2012.

This was reported to care2, by different users, again and again; Me alone reported/asked-for-repair at least 10 times (over many months; and quite carefully, precisely, providing accurate details) but never got any reply (other than the " ### AutoReply" msg). e.g., once more,  #734133: C2S: Safety Concerns - Cyberbullying - Wed, Mai 2, 2012 10:25.

(A-3) (2011...) 04/2012 care2-messaging is a mess. Deleted messages sometimes re-appear. Deleted messages do not appear in Trash. "Saved" message does not apear in SAVED-order, etc. etc --- makes me wonder: do care2-programmers know what a "commit" is?

--  medium --

(B-1a) ...2010: Billboard-Editor adds extra, unwanted linebreaks (so that after only [edit]+[save], with NO changes made billboard appears changed.) 

(B-1b) 10/2011 same now with blog-SHARE-Editor: adds extra, unwanted linebreaks -- 12/2011: not only NOT fixed, but seems to be getting worse. -- Bug is alive and thriving in 04/2012

(B-2) [My Care2 > Personal Messaging > Inbox > Message Detail
>> [REPLY]
sender is NOT used for To:
AND [click here to select names] does not work

(B-3) [when editing a (blog-)share the "Photo" is lost, very reliably.

(a least since 01/2010, well preserved 12/2011) /c2c/photos/view ...
[Make my Profile Photo] => NO all, there ought to be feedback
[Make my Album Cover]   => "Use this photo for the cover of its Album?" = (inconsistent and)superfluous

(B-5) and give different displays, should better be unified.

(B-6) (a least since 01/2010, bug well preserved 12/2011) [credits displayed (on myPage) seems sometimes wrong (despite reloading page); and redeemingcredits often does not work with FM "Sorry, your transaction could not be completed."

(B-7) [
(B-8) [2010,2011] old profile image is still used days after profile image has been changed.

(B-9) tags are not displayed in preview of C2NN-posts

(B-9) 10/2011: This text is mutilated (see e.g. B-7, above; C-2, below)

--  trifles --

(D-1)  04/2012...  the "New" in "New: Video on C2NN!  The little green camer.." ought to have been deleted a couple of years ago.

(D-2) 2010..2012  at  there ought be a hint "NO html" for the Description at "Submit a News Story to C2NN"

Submit a News Story to C2NN

-- nice-2-haves --

(C-1) [News-posts (and comments, too) should be (edit- or) delete-able by their author - so as to enable (retraction and) correction.

(C-2)  [or, even better: use the "Rearrange Album"-display also for "delete photos"

(C-3) [03/2011]  allow [a name="xyx"] in blog-shares

Thanks Wolf, very valid point forms, but does C2 care to help! I truly highly doubt it! Thanks for sharing, I wish I had answers to all these problems, but Care2 had better wake up to these & start dealing with them as many members have exhausted their patience, I dare to say!

> does C2 care to help! I truly highly doubt it!
well, at least it did or seemed to. When I first had a care2-profile, users received (at new-year or similar) an email asking for any suggestions-for-improvement (a great idea, which (sadly) seems not to be continued) ... this prompted me to start to write these things up; and a care2-blog seemed best place where to store it.

Care to help? You're funny!!! LOL It is all very selective, isn't it? Probably a reason for that. Someone/who? is purposely sending things on a skid, this site is compromised. yes, C2. I've been watching it for over a yr. It just keeps getting worse. This is not 'innocent' incompetence, it's either a sell-out or a take-over.

Day 1 - 'noting' not activated, no matter how many times you click on 'note'; Day 2 - comments don't appear but don't dare to reload, then it appears in duplicate, making 'you' look the 'idiot'; Day 3 - personal messages you have actioned don't transfer to 'saved' or 'trash', no matter what; Day 4 - receiving an Ecard? Well get used to receiving the same card up to 7 times! Day 5 - friends removed from your friends list without that specific 'friend' having initiated it' Day 6 - cannot redeem butterfly points "transaction cannot be processed or whatever - yeah, that's why I say it's a real challenge to remain a C2 member BUT, be that as it may, THIS is the place I want to be and I won't get 'shoved out' just like that!!! And what about profiles of real friends being made 'past members' for no valid reason, and comments that did show, being removed at random??? And the forever adverts and fake members not always being removed? I went since Dec without a profile photo, then my photo changed at random, then whilst I had no profile photo friends 'told' me they liked 'my iceberg' but I couldn't see what they were referring to (yes, I eventually took screen prints showing my genuine profile photo on my page whilst the iceberg appeared on comments!) - but despite the glitches, it's flippin NICE to be here and part of 'this' family! Sadly it's high time the C2 IT guys 'get their act together'? And yes the 'initiator' should be able to retract any post for alteration/correction. And credits - still cannot figure that one out but definitely don't agree with what's listed!

Sorry - forgot about this one - suddenly receiving personal messages from 'old' C2 members (e.g. member since 2009) with NO info on their profile page; who forwarded a 'birthday message' they got from C2 (hell, I didn't even get THAT!) and yes, took a screen print but don't know how to display here. Just another glitch? And what if it 'affects' my home PC??? I don't have the resources any of these 'big companies' have!

here's one of my C2NN-comments, which got deleted, ~yesterday:

> I believe it is a CARE2 GLITCH.
well, IF (caps intended) this would have been a care-2 bug --a BUG which has been devouring (some) comments for many months now, with numerous users reporting/complaining/asking for correction-- this would be a SEVERE BUG -- and the fact that it had not been corrected by care2 (in many months, while e.g. much-lower-priority 'redesign'-work was done) this would show near-unbelievable (for me, as an old mostly-SW-developer by profession) INCOMPETENCE of those responsible.

It's also remarkable, that care2(customer support) hardly ever, if ever, answers help-requests in this matter.

note: I do acknowlege (and applaud) that care is free-of-charge; and thus necessarily runs on a low budget (who doesn't?) . But then, if those responsible are not up to the task (in the time they have) , then, I'm pretty sure, amongst the " 18,929,632 members doing good! " would be enough who could and would be willing to help them out. (here's one potential volunteer writing)
