Weasyl is really really dead. I've had more activity on inkbunny since people are regularly on that site for other reasons.From what I understand Weasyl is the next best alternative, unless that has changed. If the members of FA are so concerned about having a medium to the point where they rely on it for whatever reason, it's either take the alternative or go without. If I relied on commissions to pay the bills, I'd go with the alternative.
What I'm trying to say is that many of us are using the alternatives. Heck, I made a furry network today, but it's kind of like investing in a lot of stock into different companies. You're still gonna be in a load of shit when the biggest donut goes down.
