    Jan 1 Announcement

    As a follow-up to our previous journal announcing the closure of the forum, we’d like to officially announce that our Discord is now publicly available! The following is a quick FAQ based on the feedback we’ve received from our early access period. Please note that our #guidelines and...

    What are your favorite kinds of posterior? Why?

    Yes, and we'll be extending those to the main site as well.

    Important: Forum Closure, FA Discord Coming Soon

    We can't give out copies given there's a lot of personal/private information, unfortunately. That said, if you haven't, check out of Discord thread here. It gives a preview of what we're doing and how it'll work. https://forums.furaffinity.net/threads/discord-preview-thread.1682719/

    Important: Forum Closure, FA Discord Coming Soon

    We'll keep them in read online, but eventually they'll go offline. We'll archive a copy of the database so it'll never be truly lost. FAF is a slice of FA and furry history to a degree, so it's something I definitely want to hold on to.

    Important: Forum Closure, FA Discord Coming Soon

    It was a hard decision for me to make. I started these forums way back when. I was just a user. Ended up a forum mod. Became an admin. Then the head guy in charge. This is a big slice of my history in the fandom, and kind of my origin story. So... on a personal level, yeah. I feel it. I do. But...

    Important: Forum Closure, FA Discord Coming Soon

    I understand, I do... and I'm sorry. I know this isn't easy as there are a small, but hardcore core group who called FAF their home. We're working to make things better for FA long term, and we know this isn't the news people expected, but we hope you'll give us a chance. Our Discord team has...

    Important: Forum Closure, FA Discord Coming Soon

    Yep. Titles are just a good way to judge if a user is kind of a "known quantity." Just a regular user, y'know? And it's kind of a feel good for users to get a lil' level up, but it doesn't do anything, convey benefits, etc. It's account parsley.

    It's not the Russians we're worried about. *whispers* It's the crab people.

    Sarcasm is not something that translates to text. It's hard to know intent sometimes.

    Important: Forum Closure, FA Discord Coming Soon

    An FA Discord has been an oft requested for some time. Not at the top-top of the list, but it's been requested a bit. No one platform is going to work for all cases.

    Important: Forum Closure, FA Discord Coming Soon

    FAF gets maybe between 300-350 active user a day. That's it. Ten years ago that was ten times that. FA gets hundreds of thousands of users a day by comparison, over a few million per month. If FAF were more active, had the numbers, maybe things would be different, but we can't divvy up resources...

    We get it. You're not planning to use Discord. No decision we make will be able to work for all users in all instances, and we get that's frustrating, but every other post saying "I'm not getting Discord." is not helpful.

    Important: Forum Closure, FA Discord Coming Soon

    The forums are personal to me. In fact, I started them. When FA was taken off line in 2005 I made the forums as an alternate home, while working with Alkora to bring the site back up. I have a lot of vested interest in them, and it's not a decision I made lightly, but it's one I had to recognize...

    Important: Forum Closure, FA Discord Coming Soon

    FA will be FA? We're not changing the main site in any way, nor do we have intention on opening a subreddit. I understand this is frustrating but our goals are to focus on the main site and make vast improvements. Just handling the automated spam that hits the forum alone can be a lot (and...

    Ads still visible with FA+

    Your bad indeed. We do, in fact, provide that. However, what we don't do is provide impression-based advertising. Our prices are designed to be fair and open to the community as a whole so anybody can access them. We openly and knowingly undersell them. A Kaiju package costs $75 and provides...

    Important: Forum Closure, FA Discord Coming Soon

    It will not impact FA, no. Forum maintenance, licensing costs, and general server upkeep pull resources from the main site. Part of our goals for FA 2023 is to continue making improvements, refinements, and to focus on the main site. While the forums may be a small, several hours of tech time...

    Important: Forum Closure, FA Discord Coming Soon

    The unfortunate reality is forum usage as a whole has been declining on the internet for a number of years, mostly killed of due to social media, Discord, Reddit, and other platforms which are kind of all encompassing. Ads aren't always the important thing, but the forum doesn't raise enough...

    Important: Forum Closure, FA Discord Coming Soon

    After roughly 17 years we have made the decision to close the forums. As technology and the internet changes we need to re-evaluate our positions every so often, adapt, and shed our shells like the majestic Alaskan king crab. We appreciate the time, input, and energy members of FAF have given to...

    Main site banner... too big (and other issues)

    If you'd like to send me your CSS to review so I can see the changes it makes I can take a look into them. If it's just CSS I can probably work that in if it helps.
