I became a Furry a few days ago, could I get some advise, things I gotta know as a Furry ?
Don't use one e-mail for furry stuff and your general important stuff; hacking and raids are not unusual no matter what site you're on. Also, keep a password book handy and never have just one password... and throw that book in a safe so no family members come across it and wonder what FurAffinity, e621, F-List, etc. is.
And make friends! Seriously! Friends mean connections, and you might save some money with the right connections if you get into commissions or something. But more importantly, friends will always keep you updated in the fandom's current events that may interest you whether it's a convention near you, car-pooling opportunities to said convention, artists that may interest you, the list goes on.
And one last thing: don't be too impressionable. Never loose sight of your own thoughts and feelings and always think before you act. I don't really want to spoil it for you, but there are some shitty and manipulative people inside of the fandom, though many will tell you otherwise.
(And at least TRY when you're making your own fursona; 50 neon colors, an edgy backstory and being a hybrid of a bunch of different species doesn't make you unique, your personality does.)
I hadva friend pressure me into making an account. Didn't like it at all. It was weird and I was never once into it. (I had great friends :v)But seriously though what is F-list and what is the point of it. I see it mentioned every so often
We're people who like aniamls.
Or you use it for the chat rooms and people watch because HOLY FUCK is it amazing what goes on. Half the people are super awkward. The one's who are semi-decent are trying to deal with the awkward people hitting on them. It's damn hilarious.
Sometimes there are interesting chats, too.
It's mostly a place to find RP fuck buddies, though.
*sips drink* I'm just here to post copious amounts of furry porn.
Dunno, I've never joined in on conversation. Just people watched. Mostly the pokemon chat thing.Oh shit are you telling me there's actually a reason to use it? I wanna hear some of these stories if they're as great as what you make it out to be. You've actually piqued my interest. Is it easy to make people mad by just saying the slightest thing like calling them Bob instead of Dildorz6969?
We are both in the right place. :3

It's mostly just weird cringey shit. I didn't ever stay for long, just spend an hour watching pokephiliacs jabber.
I don't condone trolling, though :v
Didn't someone show you the secret handshake yet? it's the easiest method of identifying fellow furries!...things I gotta know as a Furry ?

if you suspect someone to be a furry, start by sneaking behind them and aggressive sniff their butt.
...did i mention it's also the riskiest method?
