It's Shiira, actually... it's another WebKit-based browser, so it uses the same rendering engine as Safari. I wanted to use something where I wouldn't be cooked by FA. (Which didn't work, as it turns out, because Shiira shares Safari's cookies. :b)

I'd love it if you add in more options in the block art section. I'm getting sick of seeing all that Sonic porn crap.

Unless it was something that would exclude works that contained certain keywords (like character names, or the word Sonic) or anything, it'd be pretty hard to link most sonic style works together to exclude them all. It's not like everyone's going to label them as "sonic porn". I think it might be too broad of a thing to approach any other way.

Yeah, you got a point there.

Maybe Fanart(adult) would work just as well.

Oh jebus christ do I think something needs to be done about that. I hate getting on and seeing the whole page being filled with tons of sonic porn! Eww...

has this been mentioned? and I'm not sure if its even in the right thread...

will we be able to customize our User page layout and its look, Like FA did before?

Sorry If I sound like a broken record ^^;

Well, my honest recommendation? Whore the +watch feature. Watch artists you like, and keep your inbox full of all the good are that you love to see. Filters will be refined over time, but they can only go so far. For some things, you will have to do a bit of self policing.

+watch. Keeps you seein' what you want to be seeing.

I'd like to see something like Flash Chat back up. Something you can run right in a browser or something. The mIRC room's dead. Easier accessiblity=more people=party+booze=naked party. And who doesn't want a naked party?

I am sure a flash client is available that allows for connection to an irc server. As an alternative to flash, I use PJIrc on my website, a free java client.
Flash chat would be just as dead right now. The reason that the chat is dead is because FA is still "dead". Once FA is back up and running the chat will be up and running.

Actually,that's not necessarily true. Back on the old FA,Flash Chat would be jumpin' while the mIRC room would be dead. One complaint I often heard on there was that Flash Chat was unstable while the mIRC chat was always full of people sleeping. So,accessability,while often downplayed,is a factor. Why do you think so many people use Windows? Something to think about.

hover-message thingies???

Perhaps it would be good to apply a code so that when you hover your mouse over an image, you can see who it was by.

*shrugs* a small thing.. i know :(

The problem with the old flash chat system, was that it did not directly connect with the irc server. mIRC is only one of many clients that connect to a standard IRC server. You can use telnet to connect to #furaffinity on furnet.org. The old flash chat used it's own engine for chat. The link I provided for the flash client connects to the irc, so when you use the flash (or the java) browser based client, it will connect to the chatroom on furnet.

Well, as Starlite wrote, the chat system before had two different channels. A reasonably active Flashchat and a reasonably active IRC channel. Here's the problems with each:

Flashchat had a direct link from the main website, which is why more people went to it. The program was incredibly laggy, buggy and ineffecient in its coding. It also contained a huge memory link that would cause the program to crash.

It also ran SLOW, no matter what your processor. I mean, a pig on tranquilizers ran faster than the Flashchat. But people used it because it was linked directly.

IRC was a mixed bag. People used it, but it was not moderated in the slightest. The IRC was linked to Arcturus' server, and it was something you either loved or hated.

The new IRC, as noted, is located on Furnet. There is ALWAYS a conversation going on somewhere. Connecting to the server with an IRC client, just type in /list and be treated to a wealth of channels. The added benefit of Furnet is that A) it's moderated by system operators and B) it's running the latest versions of the IRC code to help prevent bot flooding, nuking, spoofing and it tries to prevent massive asshatry.

Furnet a community, not just one channel. Not just FurAffinity. So, if you want to exercise and use the additional channels, you can. Feel free. If not, #furaffinity is where it's at.

Actually, we have that... it just currently only works in IE. We are working on fixing that.

The problem is the browser itself. Mozilla just HATES mouse-overs (at least 1.6). And I'm not screaming for that feature...

That's true, but I think there may be a work around. For example, similar popups do work on sites like MMORPG.com. There may be some sort of code that string that could be modified to enable functionality, or an appropraite workaround.

Check the "latest news headlines" to see what I mean.

It's not just a Mozilla thing; Safari and Shiira have the same problem for FA, and are known for quite accurate rendering. The MMORPG.com version works for me, as do other similar things on other sites; so I'm assuming the code that does that is an IEism or buggy, rather than a problem with Mozilla/WebKit.

Keywords?

Please forgive my density if this was something that was already brought up. But is there a keywords search on the Beta as of yet? I haven't found one, if there is...

Yeah, where it says "find User" Instead of typing in the user neam, put in "Find (Keyword)" to find what your looking for.

That should go into the FAQ. :)

Also, I agree on getting rid of the rating labels on the thumbnails. It's just kind of bothersome to some users. It can aslo make some younger users parents *coughlikeminecough* wonder if the site is suitable for them... I'm 14 by the way... >_>

And also, I agree with having 60x60 avatars. 100x100 are way to big and depending on the file size, it can slow down computers. I mean, having a whole page of 100x100 animated avatars could crash a computer with a low speed. >_>

I don't suppose we could do something other than IRC. It seems to be full of viruses and warez. How about a Yahoo room or something?

You seem to have a misconception about IRC. Perhaps you should never, ever visit EFnet, DALnet or Rizon, since that's where all the viruses and warez crap come from.

FurNet has none of the stuff you just listed.

Like any tool, you have to understand the limitations and abilities of the tool itself before you use it -- be it IRC, the internet, your computer or even life itself. Viruses and "warez" (black market goods) exist in the real world, after all, and you have to be able to understand how to identify them.

Sure, the common cold is vastly different from KLEZ, but... :)

There will be additional information on how to protect yourself on the IRC link as well as in the FAQ when FA goes live (or shortly thereafter).

This is not a software suggestion, it's an organization suggestion, but this IS the suggestion thread...

'Change day.' Updating the software is murder, we've all seen... so have a set time each month (the 1st, or the 10th, etc.) set aside for when any and all additions or major overhauls 'go live.' Between change days, don't change the software except for the usual bugsquashing. Is Big Feature X not ready to go live exactly on change day? You've got another 4 weeks.

Us users can choose between braving new software on that day, or taking a break from FA for a day or two to let the kinks be worked out. I guess, predictability in the unpredictability. :3

While you're working on things, I think it would be nice to be able to filter out certain kinds of adult artwork that you don't want to see.

For example, I get thoroughly sick whenever I see Disney or other kids cartoon show characters depicted in sexual situations, and while I like other porn I would be very happy to never EVER see gummy bears or sonic the hedgehog screwing eachother ever again.
