One thing I've noticed. We might suggest that people under 18 not post their age publicly. I'm not saying that there's... who am I kidding? Let's face it, there's some darn scary people in the fandom, not a lot, but enough that the Grandma in me worries.
I hope me mentioning the guide didn't come across as condoning it. I didn't like the old one, but I'm new enough I didn't think it was my place to ask for a replacement. I try really hard to help people feel welcome.
i joined a while ago and left (unintentionally, i just forgot to log back in) and just recently came back. i’ve never seen that thread but just read it all. if i saw that coming back i probably wouldn’t have joined! i was reading that with a bad expression the whole time. glad to see it go. the furry community gets a bad rep as it is, why make it seem like we’re all jerks? i think a make-over is due :]
my suggestion is don’t have it be ridiculously long! the old post had me eye rolling by the fifth bullet. i think a short, simple guide is best
This thread's kinda old but I have to say I'm glad we're getting rid of that thread. I actually almost left the forums when I first read it because it was so hostile and I thought people were gonna attack me for naming myself after my fursona at the time (old account). It's probably doing more harm than good.
Admittedly life did get a bit busy in the past but I'd still like to take the time and make a new better one.
I think it might just be a good idea to just look for suggestions to say here and just slowly build it up in the OP of this thread.
There was a group working together through PMs but it is hard to see where we are on that. I could also like make a Telegram group to discuss it as well.
Whichever seems to be the best way to communicate easier.
That old thread was stickied for 9 years? I honestly wouldn't have just joined if I hadn't opened this one first.
I was expecting a guide for people like me and find spots for "...stuff and things here!". Lmao
