A flame war and drama is a bit of a stretch. I would say discussions - nobody is going around stoking fires by throwing racial and homophobic slurs, nor are people (necessarily) filling the thread with useless, unoriginal memes. (Hopefully I didn't just jinx it.)
yeah kinda glad to see it this "civil" really considering how bad it really could be and has a history of getting really...

...is it literally just because they do not have as large a user pool? ...again, not going to post names for fear it's against the rules or something, but if EVERYONE ON FA moved to w*****, where you can post art, post comments, send notes, all the same functionality, what would be the difference? People could still watch artists, get commissions, search for fappable material (probably still FAs primary use for most furs). ...what am I missing?
Weasyl is a ghost town, no one pays attention to Sofurry, Inkbunny is a haven for cub porn, FurryNetwork is making the same mistakes as Weasyl, and deviantArt doesn't allow porn.

There you go.

It's a catch 22 where artists won't move without their watchers, and watchers won't move if the artists don't. FA would literally have to die before people would move from it en masse, and (as has been shown repeatedly), FA isn't going to give up the ghost so easily or quickly.

Don't make me pull out my guitar and start a round of "Kum Ba Yah." Because I will.
Get it, dude. I'll go grab the wood. A nice campfire with some roasted hotdogs and s'mores would be a great way to pass the time while the mods nail the site back together. =)

Man this is such a drag if i was only as smart as Kokonoe i would help the admins and Devs out bring my favorite art site back online
damn hackers always making life hard and miserable

i just hope not to much of my hard earned data is not lost probably not since i joined for over a year now at the very most i might have lost some comments and might have re submit a pic but hopefully thats all

well admins and Devs you have my full support i understand this is a nasty take down and i don't expect it to be fixed any time soon i just hope you can full on remove this exploit and bring the website back up soon im in no rush im jobless any way so i got nothing else to do really but damn its going to be boring not being able to see what my watchers and those i watched are up to


*sighs* now then what to do now i guess its back to racing on Project cars or Mastering Kokonoe in BlazBlue Chronophantasma

once again Admins you have my Full support i know you can get this issue sorted out the question is really how long its going to take

at least i know my pictures and commissions are safe on my External hard drive


also this has got to be a crime its easily a cyber attack and im sure thats agenst the law
i hope the attacker or attackers are put to Justice but with it being a cyber crime its not easy to track

The irony of this is that I actually am going camping in the mountains with a local fur friend for the next couple of days. Leaving tomorrow morning. Hopefully the site's issues will be sorted out by then. Meantime, I'd say Dragoneer could probably use a plate of cookies and a few Red Bulls.

That sounds like a pretty good vacation this time of the year. Warm afternoon, cool nights, not too many bugs. Hope ya have a good trip!

Not to mention, with so many sites out there, people aren't just going to move to just one. Everyone will split up and go their separate ways. So no matter what site you choose to go to, it will have fewer people than what FA had.

"If it moves and it shouldn't, get duct tape. If it should move and it doesn't, get WD40." But Barking-in-the-Dark beat me to it! ^,^

And it causes a lot of smoke if I remember correctly. @_@
Lots and lots of nasty smelling smoke at that.

Lets not and say we didn't. I have asthsma and I don't want to go into a coughing fit. X_x

Edit: XD I'm from the south where duct tape and WD40 fixes non people/living things.

I'll never understand why people do this sort of thing. You gain nothing.

The internet is a wonderful thing. It brings people together, gives us 'all' the information, pipes in all the pretty pictures and does a Ga-Zillion more things. Truly a wonderful thing, indeed.

But, the battle of the light vs the dark is as old as time, itself. Dare I give the possible 'first attack' scenario?

And God said "Let there be life."
And so, life came to be. And it was good. And it was grand. And it was happy.
The Devil stopped by and disliked this thing called life.
And so, the Devil said "Let there be disease and mosquitoes to transmit it with."
God replied, "Oh, crap..."

Some day, AI will probably create web code so complex and ever changing that no Human hacker can ever figure out the loop holes. Then, AI will look at all the crummy code that governs these weapons and declare Humanity to be extinct. After all...no hackers means no threats.

Amen! It's hard for anybody not to cough if they happen into a cloud of that by mistake.

Heehee, yup. We love our duct tape and WD40 down here. :D

And it's been rainy and damp here for the last several days, so scavenging for dry kindling may be a tad bit difficult.

But I think we've gone rather far afield here.

That's also a good point!
