There are furs complaining about FA being down. There are furs complaining about the furs complaining that FA is down. There are furs complaining about the furs complaining about the furs complaining that FA is down.

There are those who worry that their donation money has been squandered, yet they gripe at those who did not donate. The artists depending on FA for capital have worked themselves into a froth, yet...has every single one of then seriously pursued other options?

Some are upset by broken deadlines, but you all know what is said about laid plans of mice and men..

Why can't we all join paws, hum happily together, and rejoice FA's return instead of complaining about the downtime? We should be celebrating that we have a shorter wait instead of being angry at time that we have already endured! Get prepared! Organize your art dump! Any pictures you want ready by the time FA is up? Any stories?

It's true, business has been lost, but keep in mind...a valuable community has also been lost. How can we say that we are mad that this community is unavailable to us, when some of us don't support it...myself included, I'm afraid. </hypocrite>

So hurray Dragoneer! And hurray Dan Hyena! And especially hurray for Yak, the poor fellow. Without these guys and their hard work and co-operation, we wouldn't have an FA.

Though in that vein...a search function would be nice. </asshole>

... You're not from Earth, are you? :p

Reguardless- just shut up and be happy its being worked on at all, seriously. They could be even more pricks to you lot and just say 'FIX IT YOURSELF.'

It's not a good idea to call the owners of a site (THAT MOST OF YOU don't even PAY to be on!) idiots, morons, and all of the above because their downtime took LONGER than they even planned for.

You can't PLAN with Electronics. You can't say "Oh, it'll be up in an hour." IT. NEVER. HAPPENS. I've been a computer tech for 6 years now... I don't wanna hear all the 'WAH, MY PORN IS GONE!" Unless you're actually paying to keep that site going monthly, you have NO right to bitch.

And for those of you who run your "business" through FA, but don't do shit for them in return- You gotta spend money to make money. Invest in your own sites already.

At the end of the day. It's not like there is a dozen other fucking websites people can use to upload their art, whether it be porn or not.

FA will just be back up when it's ready.

"But Cullen, when will it be ready?" I hear you ask?

How the fuck am I sposed to know? WHEN IT'S FUCKING READY YOU GUYS. I realise some people may be worried because they donated money to the site etc and there doesn't seem to be any postive happenings, but really that's the risk you take when you donate cash to any cause.

I know this may contradict some of what I've said to other people on other forums or in my journal. But I'm trying trying to view this situation from another angle.

wow.

did you guys even READ the announcement?

yak has been up for 48 hours! 2 days! without sleep! most likely working tirelessly so he can get the site working again, and when he finally is about the point of collapse (anyone who has stayed up for 2 days straight know what its like to actually have to think and do productive work with such little sleep), he decides to actually...take a break and catch some sleep before he puts the finishing touches on the site and be around in case shit hits the fan...and what happens? you guys bitch and moan!

ive only read a few pages of this 26 page long topic and already im angered with the amount of stupiditiy there is. They announced monday cause they thought it would be monday. Yak stayed up 2 whole days working on it so he could meet his goal....but he was wrong. Guess what, hes human, just like the rest of us. hes not perfect, or some sort of superhuman god. You guys have NO IDEA what issues there were when they got the server. none at all. i dont even know...so bitching that OMG ITS ONLY A SIMPLE FILE COPY, WHY IS IT TAKING SO LONG? doesn't help cuase...guess what? if they are having to rewrite sections of the code, obviously something else is causing problems.

So to the people bitching and moaning about the deadline being passed, shut the hell up. He wasnt screwing around, he was working hard.

not to mention if they announced 'the site would be up when its done' you guys would still complain.

and the donations are jsut a one time thing, they dont have a constant stream of income...so hiring someone wont work cause what happens when they run out of money?



See the thing is, all the people that made donations to this site, HAVE THE RIGHT TO BITCH! Why? Cause it is their money funding this circus! They have that right! Well now Yakky Yak should be rested? Or does he need 5 days of sleep for his "Five people rolled into one" persona?

Another deadline scotched, and yet more questions asked as to why people are loosing patience with those maintaining the hardware that keeps FA running. Yes, Yak does need a break if he's been working for 48 hours flat - but if the system was properly funded and maintained in the first place, he wouldn't have to do this, and we wouldn't be here now. I hope, this time, that the FA staff decide to look at their business model and revenue, and decide how best to keep the money steadily flowing in to help prevent muck-ups like this again.



Good Post!!!

FA is a nice site...when it's working. CLEARLY, if we hated or dislike the site, we wouldn't be viewing the status fourm every other day, only to be kicked in the ass with disappointment.

Hah, and THAT is the truth we all have to face.

Have you seriously ever tried coding, scripting, and such for 48 hours straight? Think about it for a moment- staring at a white screen on a monitor... READING for fourty. EIGHT. hours. STRAIGHT.
Yes, you can bitch about your donations missing. However, unless you're a complete insomniac and stay up weeks on end, I'd like to see you even pull half that long.

I just wanna ask.... Is there gonna be some kind of surprise? (Search engine *hint hint*), so that's the delays about? O.O

And people, you can always visit other sites and post your art until FA comes up. FAP (furryartpile.com) is a good choice.

You read his post a lot different than I did. I saw joking about everyone's bitching, and mocking the people who have left themselves dependent on a third party for getting and dealing with customers, without the calling the site owners idiots, and such.

No I haven't cause I would hire someone to do it. If you can't handle it your self then get someone to do it. Besides, I can't help it he stayed up for two days, how stupid. GO TO BED! lol Could I stay up that long?? Why the fuck would I? ROFL:rolleyes:

I know they have the money because the returned that SUN server and kept the only one, well look an extra 5000 bucks to get someone in and do it RIGHT! Now that he has reworked this code, I bet we'll have more and more issues. It's the difference between a "Geek Squad" Coder, what we have here and a Professional Coder.

First thing I expected when going on this thread was trolls.

And what do I see.

Trolling furries.

Seriously, if you wanna fuck around and make fun of people trying to bring FA back, then you can fuck off and die. Or at least move your ass over to some chan board, were you trolls belong.

Has anyone seen the episode of South Park where the Internet 'runs out', and everyone goes to 'Californie-way' to get it? I think most folks here, who've been going w/o FA has been going through the same thing...

Yep. And that made me laugh just now. :)

*faps at poorly drawn fake dog porn* "It's not working..."

You mean Ebon's stuff? (Sorry couldn't resist. ;)

Oh well. Guess we're waiting again.
Looks like I need something else to occupy my time for now.

By the way, I haven't seen it yet,

How is Yak doing now? After 1 night of no sleep, I am not fit to be crossed. 2 full days, he's been going at it? The way I see it, FA can rest while he rests. If anything happened to one of our techies, it could spell truoble for the site.
Tell him to rest, I know I can wait.

Aggreed, FAP may not be FA but hey, it's got a search function!

But really is it that hard to have two sites to be posting or browsing through? Besides FAP needs a bit more loven', not many people go there.

As I've said a few times now folks, bitching, moaning, and complaining will NOT bring FA back any faster. Yak is working as hard as he can, but after being up for 48 hours straight with no sleep, he finally had to take a break, and quite honestly, as I've said before, a break is what he deserved after working as hard as he already has.

What needs to happen in the meantime, is that everyone who has come on here and complained that FA isn't up yet, need to show some patience, rather than snarling because the site isn't up and running yet. And yes, as someone already has said here previously, we should ALL be glad that the admins of FA, don't just tell us all to try to fix it ourselves, because I'm sure they're getting tired of reading all the complaints.

Yes, I'll admit that I was impatient myself at first, but after re-evaluating the situation, I realised that complaining won't get FA back up any faster, so I've learned to be patient, and wait it out, which is what everyone who has complained needs to do.

FA will be back up eventually, just please everyone, show a little patience right now, the admins are working as hard as they can, and I'm sure that once Yak has had his rest, he will pick up right where he left off, working hard to get FA back up and running for us. I thank all of you for your time, and to the FA admins, thank you all for all your hard work that you've done for us to get FA up and running again.

What deluded you into thinking I needed your respect?

Would you like a flower?

Maybe its the way you put yourself above everyone else through hasty assumptions and stereotypes. Sorry that oCe doesn't have a HOMFG WORK OF ART as an avatar. Some people like to enjoy themselves sometimes.

Also, oCe has a website, I've visited it. However, as with MANY artists who I know make a siginificant amount of income off artwork, the most business comes from sites such as DA, FA, FAP, etc. Its all a matter of traffic, whether you have a small freesite or a big expensive domain.

This entire thing has really made me rethink my opinion of the furry community, and my involvement in it. I don't want to be surrounded by people who want EVERYTHING NOW and who will flame when someone wants to SLEEP. Things would have been done, except when the Bahamut server shit itself it took some of the code Yak was working on with it. (if I understand correctly) So he'd been up for TWO DAYS coding to try and make the deadline for you guys. Learn some freaking appreciation.

To Jabby, they did not get a refund for the Sun server, they sent it back to have it assembled so they don't VOID THE WARRANTY. So no, they do NOT have "an extra 5000 bucks" there's under 2k left now, and a significant portion will likely be eaten up soon by the bandwidth and hosting fees.

And what am I doing today indead of cheacking every 5 seconds to see if FA is up? Going to work. Working on artwork. Working out because I'm not a sedentary basement-dweller. Working in the garden. And maybe tonight I'll look again to see if the site's up. its not that hard.

Give the man a break.

Seriously guys. Staying up for fourty eight hours on end is not my idea of a work day in heaven. Look, if you want to whine about this, don't do it in the forums where the hard working staffers don't want to listen. Sure, I'm quite upset that FA isn't up yet, and I do agree that they should have had it up earlier. But if he needs more time to get it up and running properly, then let him. It's better to have something up like it should be over having it running for about a week, then shutting down again because Yak had to rush it due to the countless bitching that's been going on.

I agree. If you want to disscuss something like this, don't waste space in the forums. Go somewhere like Y! Messenger, and discuss. That's what they were made for.

Find me on Y! and we'll kick off a discussion, but save room in the forums.

I've coded for hours before on little projects of mine. I can handle tedious tasks rather well but I doubt I could go 48 hours (Though I hope I could if I ever needed to haha) Which is why the above is QFT

Like I said before, that's Yak's own fault for staying up that long. He should know better. Work smarter. It's really simple. Tired? GO TO BED!

Oh look, it is Tuesday...no site yet? Is he still fucking sleeping??
