    I'm quite interested in seeing how all of this will pan out. I'm glad to hear the databases aren't merging and that our accounts will not be jeopardized in any way.

    I'm assuming that FurAffinity will remain free to use? I've been reading that Furocity is a pay-to-use website. I don't want to have to dish out money to upload something here on FA or pay to have full access to the site when I've been doing it for years for free.

    Good, it's about damn time...FA has been leaving us in the dark on communication on certain things like security and code updates(lacking a PR or two members!), not to mention not enough communication between each other, particularly the normal mods! I really hope this does whip their asses in gear since quite a few are sick of this circus and inaction over here.

I'm not asking for the keys to the city here, I'm asking for a vote. It's a business and government. Both of them require a system of check and balances.

    I have no plans on directly changing the way that works any time soon. But, I will say that /if/ we ever do subscriptions (read: if) it won't be like DeviantArt. They make the site impossible to use unless you pay. My theory is offer perks (ala LiveJournal).

    But if we had planned to do subscriptions we'd have done them long ago.

    why not merging both into one solid site? been using furocity since a long time, so i know how it is, the staff is pro and it's made by a webdedsigner who knows his job. it can be a benefit for both sites. think about it.

    in before: hurf i'm a troll i'm on the big trol list

    Remarkable.

    (Newbie is glued to screen, skimming posts)

    Really, remarkable. As a snapshot into fur/FA politics,
    this thread *is* something to watch.

    (Newbie smacks self in head, struggles to turn off
    computer, else no other work gets done today)

    An observation: in politics, semantics is everything.

    To the people involved here, and after a years work, it
    feels like a merger.

    Natural, then, to call it that.

    Except that in a political sense, it's more properly
    an *alliance.*

    (Newbie grabs for old political science textbook to
    dig out definition... then smacks muzzle with it.
    Work, work to do...)

    Alliance. ALLIANCE. Alli-an-ce. Or if you're dsylexic, Encailla
    Say, that word sorta sounds good, doesn't it?

    Merger carries the connotations of change or loss
    of identity for one or both sides.

    Alliance implies stability of identity, if not enhancement
    of it. At the least, more of a win-win situation in terms
    of shared goals.

    (Newbie just had to read the pages that fell open, damn it)

    From reading between lines here, strikes me that
    what's going to be happening looks more like an alliance
    than a merger.

    This opinion will, I'm sure, have a profound effect on the
    further course of this thread. And the temperature of the
    firestorm. :- /

    (Work, work, work, screams the Newbie, about to
    dump his coffee on the keyboard as a last resort.)

    And I remain,


    Flashing on: 'Sir, sir, Rebel Alliance sortie in sector 12!! Scan is giving targetting images... Wait: tails?' :- )

    dA isn't impossible to use unless you pay, I use it, true the site is too egotistical on the whole is why I hate it, but dA also offers perks to it's subscribers.

    But it's a good idea, I always wondered why you never did this, even on the forum, you should offer perks, I've seen it on a lot of other forums, including my own, it'll help boost donations up for you a lot, should probably throw that into your discussions as well.

    Great. Please be honest: are there ANY plans on banning any more types of artwork? If its going to be changing like Furocity is, I'm going to have to find another site, as much as I'd really rather not have to.

    So the two sites will share staff and coding resources yet remain separate? ...I am okay with this. At least something might get done now.
