Hi! I'm new and I have a few questions if you don't mind answering?

Hi! My name is Jouji and I'm new to the furry community! I've been looking into this for a while and just never joined, but now I finally have. I was wondering about a few things if anyone doesn't mind answering.

For one, is there anything considered taboo? Or is there anything I shouldn't do?

Are there easier ways to talk to/ make friend with the community?

Does anyone know any non- forum community sites? Like chatbox ones? I'm not really a computer person so electronics confuse me easily, heheh...

Other places to go to for furry art aside from Furaffinity, Tumblr, and Deviantart?

Is there anything really important that I need to know about?

Welcome!

There's plenty of Discord, Skype, similar servers and chat rooms that other members usually advertise elsewhere on the forums.

Most everyone is pretty nice here so making friends should be easy as you post more :)

I've heard about Discord, but never had a chance to use it. Do you know if it is as good as they say?

IMO its notably better than Skype, mostly because it has bots, it's significantly faster, custom emojis, and the good ole Microsoft Sam quality text to speech. Skype has video chatting, but Discord has voice chat that allows bots to play music at the same time.

I'd recommend it (even over Skype), especially if you game and whomever you're talking to (especially for console) doesn't own a mic.

Some people are more likely than others to be triggered over nonsense (I am nowhere near one of those people), so as long as you're not being a total ass then you should be fine :D

Yes, never bring up the topic of Zoophilia, Beastiality, science vs religion or discriminate against the LGBT community or those with a mental disorder.

Yes, Foxes are the best species in the fandom.

You aren't limited to fluffy (or floofy) creatures. Also just don't be that guy who photoshops hitler with furry ears, just be nice, and you'll have niceness back.

1. Taboo and downright disgusting to many is:

Vore
Acting cringey in public
Wearing tails, ears, etc. to school, college, work or university
Telephone
Insulting our holy savior Uncle Kage

2. Friends and shit

Just chat with people. If you want to meet real furs then look around for conventions or local furmeets in your area and attend them if you want. Just bear in mind it's really not going to be all that great 9/10 times

3. Furry chat sites

Furry4Life (Though it's pretty dead)
Tails Refuge (Mix of real time chat and forums)
Ferzu (Assuming you're of legal age. Assuming you're also a nutcase with extreme alt-left views) (Facebook-like system)

4. No fucking clue that isn't porn

5.

Telephone is obnoxious as fuck
Remember to keep furry to yourself like you would any other hobby
Do not treat it like a sexuality (I.E "I WANNA COME OUT AS BEING FURRY TO MY FAMIYL AND FRIENDS!)
There are conventions and shit that happen often if you want to check it out

Pretty good tips, thank you.

That's a given! But I was asking more about things about offending people....?

Never even seen this but here's a pro-tip

Don't worry about that shit. Unless you bend yourself backwards to be as PC as possible you're going to offend someone. Best to be yourself and not give a shit unless you wanna be a puppet.

Thanks. Who's Uncle Kage?

He's more or less the figure head of the entire fandom. Distinguished man with a PhD in chemistry and is insanely good at public relations. He organizes the cons and is generally a pretty alright story teller. All in all I have massive respect for him


And you're wrong. Bird are where this shit is at
