Today, Fur Affinity turns 6
In all of those years, we've had some times and bad, and hit some incredible milestones. We've managed to see over 5.1 million submissions made to the site, 37.7 million comments, 1.25 million notes and over 2 million journals. And shouts? We don't even want to get started.
So what's next for FA?
Things have been slack in the coding department, and we know that. It's time for a change, and we're long overdue. We're going to fix that.
Today, we're announcing the Version 3.0 of FA, which we will be launching at FA United 4 this Summer. We've got a date (May 21st), and we're going to be pulling in new coders, new talent and a wealth of resources to pull the site to modern standards. Fresh, zesty new commenting, a unique commissions and rating system and a wealth of requested features. We're hiring (yes, paying!) professional UI developer to finish, refine and tweak our new design (a live template test can be found here).
Not to mention, FA's official web hosting will be up-and-running within the next 30 days! More on that soon.
To commemorate that, we're also reducing FA United 4 pre-registration prices by 10% for the next three days. Want to see FA v3.0 live, and be the first to see it? Now's your chance. You can save up to $15 on the cost of admission (and coupled with hotel rooms at the Marriott $10 cheaper than last year, there's no better time to do so!).

We've got a lot of work cut out for ourselves in the next few months, but we've come off with a fresh new perspective since December, and we're not wasting that momentum.
So stick around for a while. Fur Affinity is only going go get bigger and better.
