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
..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.
I'm actually quite curious about how the 'username' issue will pan out. Any idea, 'Neer, or is that something to be discussed still?
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?
♫ I won't sit outside your house waiting for you to wake up, and asking you for even more coke. All I want's little taste and I'll be your friend, what do you think about that you sexy bloke? Gimme the white stuff, oh I love it so much I wanna put it in my nose and be your best friend ♫
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.

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.
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.
