    as a user of furocity for the sole purpose of keeping profiles and fanart of my characters, i have to say: please tell me the already existing things on furocity will not be wiped and have to be redone.

    i have profiles, as well as my friends, and we would really appreciate to know that even if usernames would have to change (which is stupid, we were here first, and just because there's now a merge shouldn't force us to change anything like people may be claiming it'll happen) but i just want to be sure so i can at least prepare a backup?? <___> ty

    aside from that worry, uh, i guess i don't really care. i agree that they're two separate things and shouldn't merge, but whatever helps fa prosper i guess, derp

    Exactly, no matter WHAT happens, theres ALWAYS going to be someone out there who will complain! People just generally don't like change.

    ..So who's name is going to stick? We're not going to have to say something silly like "Oh check out my furafficity page" right? .... Right? XD

    I've never heard of Furocity before, but it's always good to merge two communities. My only question is if Ferocity is going to disappear and they tell their members to join FA, or vise versa? I'm curious to how this is planned out.

    I really don't understand this i never heard of furocity before? So what is the difference considering this sounds like a very huge announcement.
    This is what happens when i try to be nice.

    I'm actually quite curious about how the 'username' issue will pan out. Any idea, 'Neer, or is that something to be discussed still?

    Both sites will remain indepdent. Staffers will share resources, but as long as your account is in good standing on FA... I see no reason for that to change.

    And I'm going to stop paying attention to this whole dumb thing since, like usual, questions get skipped over instead of answering them, despite several people wondering. Good luck with your shit FA.

    Furocity has many of the basic features which should be in FA, and even a pay structure for artists wanting to use a commission. All these features, very easy to implement, are in Furocity. Is there a possibility of having the commission and pay queue features ported over from Furocity in to FA, possibly earning actual revenue from the site?

    My only concern is the payment processor of Furocity. Who says someone won't pull what they did last year to FurAffinity. Will this "merger" put Furocity's payment processor at risk?

    Both sites are going to stay open and separate. We won't be merging accounts.

    Hear me out though, I understand that a lot of people would troll and what not when asked but at least still ask, I know the 7/8 of us will still stay here on FA/Furocity and go about our stuff as normal, all I'm really wondering is what and how this would affect us in any way.
    So you'd like the mostly uneducated* masses to weigh in on what can be called an important business decision?

    No.

    Dude, calm down.
    There are around 1500 people viewing this thread and the number is growing. There are people commenting every minute. Dragoneer is not going to be able to read and reply to every single comment.

    I'm not sure I like this idea. I have nothing against either site, even with the problems that both admittedly have. I just have the apprehensive edge to this because of the failures the last few mergers became. Specifically Yiffy.tk...But yeah. Not sure if want.

    They're merging staffers and resources. I thought this was pretty obvious? Nowhere did they say they were merging databases or anything.

    I was going to ask what will happen to those members who paid for a Furocity account and how will that affect FA, but if the sites are not going through a physical merger then that is fine.

    It's a resource merger then, not so much a site merger. Basically utilizing staff and their resources than just simply merging different websites.

    To be truthful, lets just the complaining and ask the users of the sites to take a mutual IP based vote. It seems the simplest way of doing things. As for the rules, I'd be vary upset if they changed at all. I'm up for the merge and new users, but I'd debate leaving the site if any more restrictions were placed. Art is sapost to be an expression of ones self, and unrestricted. I don't personally do bestiality, rape, or cub art. Yet everyone is allowed a voice and that is what we've fought for as a fandom since the beginning. Because is wasn't too long ago that we as furries were considered just as bad as such things. So no any rule change would likely make many true artist leave FA.

    The people's voice largely doesn't know about the workings of the site, and their opinions don't really mean squat.

    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.

    I don't believe either side has ever gone through a merger, thus used the word incorrectly.

    Reading Dragoneer's responses, what they're creating is a "co-op," like a farmers' co-op except for two web organizations.

    We're talking about furries here. It's kind of their specialty.
