This post reads like prog metal lyrics
I didn't think of this until you said it, but I see it now and it's so true .-.

Also how many times are they going to have to say that the sites aren't doing much more than sharing staff? FA is still going to be FA and Furocity is still going to be Furocity, though there may or may not be rule changes. Though honestly I highly doubt any minor rule change is going to affect the majority of users anyways.

Re: Fur Affinity/Furocity Merger Announcement

It looks like Cho'gall came in here to state his opinion...with less death and destruction-y stuff. :V



I doubt you have to worry about that unless some other site thingy chooses to drop FA because of "X" artwork. :V
I really hope you're right. I'm all for FA getting more people to help work on coding and whatnot, but all this shit about the AUP being updated right after Furocity pops up like this is worrisome. Some concrete statement from someone that they're not going to be banning ANY other types or artwork would go a long way to calming some peoples nerves.

Re: Fur Affinity/Furocity Merger Announcement

Ok? You're merely telling me that like any business, its corrupt and the point that if something was entirely user based, it would fail; just as it would owner-based.

Just like any business: yes
Corrupt: no, unless you think that the people in charge making decisions is corrupt, in which case I'd label you as having severe problems with authority.
User-based Fail: yes, the users frankly don't know shit about running FA.
Owner-based Fail: in some instances I would agree that this is possible, but this seems like a genuinely good idea and I don't understand why you seem to think otherwise.

It needs to be a mixture. I'm not asking for the keys to the city here, I'm asking for a vote. It's a business and government. Both of them require a system of check and balances.

It's not a government, that's a retarded thing to say. Regardless, a businesses checks and balances come mostly internally.

So like I've been hinting at, it's not that your opinion doesn't matter, it's just that it isn't relevant in any way.

*Nods* I can agree with what you said to a point, as you are with me. In the end it's opinions and fate, so to speak.

Also, it seems this thread is slowly going off topic now..

If that happens, there are other sites to find what you are looking for. You do not have to worry because it will not happen for a long time.

Re: Fur Affinity/Furocity Merger Announcement

dA isn't impossible to use unless you pay, I use it, true the site is too egotistical on the whole is why I hate it, but dA also offers perks to it's subscribers.
dA is good if you like trojans n shit

Just curious...Dragoneer.. will you be making an announcement if/when you do decide to change the AUP to gather user support/votes/whatever?
Cause I for one, will be kinda irritated if the "no depictions of illegal activities" art rule gets put into place without consulting the users first, cause I think that will ban all marijuana-related art..
but if it does, meh.

..... They want to let Furocity admins/owner join FA...
I think it will benefit FA greatly.

Perhaps, but I really do enjoy FA, for all its 'quirks'. Having to jump ship because some half-dead little site decided to cling to FA for life support would just be sad.

Oh thank god.

I remember when HP and Compaq merged. I used both equipment from both and it was YEARS before the merged website became even remotely useful again.

Phew!

Wait, please tell me the site name isn't changing. Because FurAffinity sounds ten times cooler than Furocity.

Re: Fur Affinity/Furocity Merger Announcement

I don't mean actually kill I mean that they will have to remove their art and won't be able to do it draw it anymore.

With the situation that happened a few months ago; if that happens, they can still draw it, it is just that they will have to find another furry site to host it. There are plenty of sites that will cater to what you are looking for, it is just that you have to look for it.

Perhaps, but I really do enjoy FA, for all its 'quirks'. Having to jump ship because some half-dead little site decided to cling to FA for life support would just be sad.

I doubt it. If it is a minority, there will not be that much damage done to the site unless porn is "Banned" as a whole. Then you have something to worry about. :V

Then I guess I'm just one of those people who know of adblockplus

If the rule ''no feral porn'' gets carried over as well, then I would see a lot of people getting pissed off, I know a GREAT amount of people who indulge in feral porn, mostly dragon wise people but that is besides the point, and I know it would get them railed up a lot.

But drug related art also has a big share amount as feral porn, so I don't know....Dragoneer stated that art is art, but cub art is cub art as well and it got removed.

Re: Fur Affinity/Furocity Merger Announcement

So -this- is what Gavin couldn't tell me about under any circumstances. Bravo to him for keeping this from literally everyone not immediately involved with this merger, I can only imagine how much restraint that took, considering this was a year in the making.

Needless to say, this is the exact last thing I expected to happen, and probably the best thing you could have ever done. I honestly thought FA was going to go the way of Myspace with the way things had been going, but I have to say that Gavin really is a stellar programmer and manager, and you should all definitely give him as warm a welcome as possible. I've known the guy for two years now, and he's been fantastic during the time I've known him.

And honestly, I have to commend Dragoneer too for allowing somebody else to share the reins with him (and especially someone as competent). A new outlook and direction is definitely what the site needs, and I'm more than happy to see that's what it's getting.

Re: Fur Affinity/Furocity Merger Announcement

Whatever paves the way for getting back to rebuilding the site so that old features can be re-implemented and features planned from ages ago without worry about the legacy code getting in the way.

I have adblock, noscript, etc

I legit don't care if feral porn gets banned.
I just don't see a reasonable explanation for drug art being banned. [if it's even in consideration]

Re: Fur Affinity/Furocity Merger Announcement

if people got to sit behind the scenes to see how it is run, then people would change their tune. For now, people will complain that the site is not running by "their standards". :V

You do realize that, while it may very well be true if people got to see what was really going on their criticism would be less strident, there is insistence on secrecy that makes sure people have no idea what's actually going on "behind the scenes." It's kinda funny hearing complaints that "if only people knew what it was really like" or "if only people would stop speculating about what they didn't know" or "if only people would stop trying to find out what was actually going on." If you fight against people knowing what's going on "behind the scenes." that's a choice to accept the consequences of speculation and not living up to "their standards" just as openness has its own consequences. Cry more. :V

But yeah, staff sharing isn't a merger, and it's not a co-op like IK keeps trying to claim it is, because these words have specific definitions. It's just some degree of staff sharing and loose-affiliation website-wise. It's like how The Furry Pound used to have its own link in the navbar, but in a semi-partnership. Kinda surprised that Furocity was the post FA's hitching itself to, though. Its only significance was "that thing Benchilla would never shut the fuck up about."
