    First off, classy. Deflect my real points by focusing on an insignificant one.

    I'm more inclined to believe this chap over you. And from what I've been reading on their site, even if they didn't design it, they still have to retain programming staff to maintain it.

    (Also draken can you duke this out somewhere else, you're shitting up the thread thx)
    I would assume we'll figure out a way to give Furocity more coverage. The site has been getting quieter for the past year, after all the attention from the new launch died down.

    Yes and it is people whom try to censor art on a site based on ART that should be censored.

    Last I checked, users have never been consulted for administrator and moderator choosing. That "right" belongs to the existing admins and mods, and rightfully so. As admins and mods, they know what they need and what they're looking for.

    As for pooling resources, awesome. I think with new ideas and fresh minds, FA and Furocity might actually both come up with great things.

    I must fail as a furry since I have literally never heard of Furocity.

    Anything to restore my faith in the staff of FA is welcome in my book. As lately, to be honest, I've been disappointed. And I used to defend the staff from anybody who spoke ill.

    So, I'm interested. With a grain of salt, but very interested.
    If wishes were horses I'd be an onion.

    We are actually still discussing what changes we will be making. Most likely, not much will change, rule-wise. For a while now, we've been seeing FA's rules coming closer and closer to Furocity's rules as it is, so there is little reason to get worried. No, we're not banning furry porn (as was previously hypothesized ).

    "no bestiality" means no human + nonanthro/feral porn. Look at the AUP of Furocity.

    Unacceptable Content

    Any content which falls within the following guidelines may not be submitted to Furocity:

    • Bestiality (sexual situations including a feral/non-anthropomorphized animal)
    Doesn't say anything about humans, and even if it did that is still something currently allowed on FA.

    ok its sort of upsetting that when people who do mods for avatars on sl get bitched out by trolls saying well if you didnt create the avatar then you cant post it period. Which i can understand the sl pictures to a point but when someone makes a mod for one then how does one post pics for the mod? because if you post it like how textures are done then anyone can steal it from ya on the site but if you put it on a avatar you didnt create and try to post trolls are everywhere on your rear!

    No, no, no, haha, I wasn't worried at all. (: I was just curious; a merger of the sort described in the OP doesn't seem like it would need to touch policies or rules at all. However, now I'm getting the sense that it might be a full merger some day down the line? If so, that would explain the need to bring FA's policies up to Furocity's standards.

    I'm not saying anything about mods being chosen, no no. That's fine. But when anything that affects the site directly, non-personel-ly, we should still hear SOMETHING about it, even if indirectly like "what would you guys think of more resources? *innocent whistle*". Yea I get we have " no rights" but what we're asking for isn't much, is it?

    Just an FYI, because this is hilarious: we created, designed, and coded all of Furocity. From the ground up.

    I've never play'd SL so I can't really say on that factor. But in basic's their will be tolls everywhere you go because there will always be closed minded people.

    Its not the furry porn I'm concerned about. All of this 'maybe' and 'most likely' is pretty worrisome, especially when the rules of some tiny-ass site might change something in a far larger one. Absolutely NO rules should be changed, period. I'm quite sure most everyone is at least okay with the way FA's rules are now.

    Well seems like now it applies to Anthromorphics as well as humans. They fixed that loophole. Still no clarification yet on rule exchange, just seems like staff for now so don't all get your panties in a bunch over that.

    Seems like rules probably won't be exchanged since both sites are staying independent.

    Have some reading material, because I love you.

    They could easily vote down something which would help the site because of stupid reason like "I don't want FA to change".

    If you're point is that this move was risky because a lot of people could have been upset by this and left FA, you're wrong. FA has a largely ingrained community which isn't going anywhere for a while.

    2) Businesses cannot function properly if it's customers are calling all the shots. They know what they would like to see the company do from an outward perspective, but they don't understand how it affects things from an inward perspective. Let's say there was a branch of a chain store in your town. Everyone loves it. Now let's say that despite that, it isn't getting enough business to stay profitable and the company wants to close it down. By the customer's decision, the company would have to keep open this ailing branch. Bad for business.

    3) Since it sounds like FA is not adopting Furocity's community and structure, that's exactly what I'm talking about with the user's not having enough knowledge on the subject to make a decision. That assumption alone could get FA all riled up and stop what could easily be a very good step forward for FA. So, uhh, yea... thanks for proving my original point.

    Actually Dragoneer did state that they are in the discussion of rules, so I'm sure there will be some rule changes, major or not.

    Agreed. I'd likely leave the site along with most other Artist.
