Feedster: Strange how they include links in messages that don't work

Yes, you're excited. You've just signed into Feedster, got the access keys, and you're ready to go.

You read this really nice message from Feedster that talks about Public and private keys: Ref:

Your public key tells Feedster that you own your blog and is embedded
in your blog's template. Details are in the Feedster help page at:

http://feedster.com/help/

Your private key lets you access your MyFeeds list and other
personalized Feedster features. Try it out at:

http://feedster.com/myfeeds.php

Thanks,

Scott, *Scott, Francois, Betsy and the crew at Feedster

*Yes we do have two Scott's in the company. That's not a typo.


You read the message and there's your answer: "http://feedster.com/myfeeds.php"

Excellent!

Then you get the following message:

Unable to Find Requested Page
We recently revised our website and can't find the page you tried to go to. We're sorry. Really.

You might also want to see our about page.


OK! Another hidden source of information!

Unfortuantely, this is corporate-PR-stuff that doesn't really get us back to the e-mail or the quesions about keys.

For example, the link doesn't answer:

  • Where do I go to read about the access keys?

  • Why are there "newbie messages" that are wrong?
  • Yes, you're excited. You've just signed into Feedster, got the access keys, and you're ready to go.
