I'm sorry, I didn't mean to insult you or something, I just thought the rule could be abused because people fight here all the time, then you have a buncha people disagreeing with each other, and now there's a rule saying "HEY NOW THERE'S A RULE SAYING IF YOU DID SOMETHING BAD SOMEWHERE ELSE YOU CAN BE BANNED HERE FOR IT" and one guy mysteriously gets banned because a bunch of people who don't like him randomly came forward with a buncha "evidence" stating he has a massive amount of CP and grooms minors more than he even grooms himself.I mean, the rules right now are explicitly "You can make unlimited accounts and user proxies for them" and "You can only get Infracted for CoC / ToS violations directly posted by that specific account." I could quite literally, if so desired, make an alternate account (at a different IP courtesy of Proxy) to argue "We should torture, murder, then eat everyone who makes more than $1,000 / year", quote it with this one saying "This user might be on to something", and as long as I didn't fuck up with the Proxy I'd be in the clear.
FA(F) rules are held together by shoestrings and gum sometimes.
Could the staff issue clarification about off-site harm and how it related to use of the forum?
For example, I know that if the staff were presented with evidence that somebody was sexually grooming teenagers over the internet on different forums, that they wouldn't allow them to have a forum account here.
I want to know how this would relate to other activities- support for terrorism has recently become relevant- but I also think that online scams is something there should be a plan for- because somebody seeking to scam users will come along sooner or later.
You don't have to do that. Just click the insert image button and insert by link.I hope it's not a bad time, but I would like the ability to easily copy and paste gifs on the forum instead of having to download them on my device and then upload it through the attached files button.
I'm only suggesting this because it was something the previous version of the forum had before the temporary shutdown.
I refer you to https://www.furaffinity.net/coc - "nor act upon incidents occurring outside Fur Affinity unless a substantial and direct correlation can be made to an incident that is imminent or occurring on Fur Affinity." Obviously a subjective measure involved. The greater point you all were arguing about: yes, at times, FA will action off site content. No, that does not mean we will/do make it a habit to trowel through Twitter accounts or read Livejournal posts from 15 years ago. Nevertheless, there are exceptions when the gravity of the content or situation warrants it. I am not getting into specific hypotheticals, because we consider the totality of content before making decisions and there are a billion variables that may or may not be visible to someone making a report.
I can refer the unique ticket ID code to you, so that this can be established as a precedent on the forum.
To briefly interject: This was the main thrust of clarification requested for in that thread (admittedly never explicitly asked, only implicitly). I was curious if the subject of the Mainsite Announcement was considered one of the "exceptions where the gravity of the content or situation warrants it", or an "Unless it's something big like a confession or direct call to violence, if it's off FA(F) don't bring it here / Affairs Of Other Boards do not concern us".Nevertheless, there are exceptions when the gravity of the content or situation warrants it.
Again, I am really guarded on getting into detail / hypothetical situations because every individual report is unique and if I give you a scenario it will enter the ether as "the rule" or "the way things are supposed to happen." All I can assure you is that we put a significant amount of effort into trying to ensure that there is appropriate balance between the fact we are not Twitter (or insert here) moderators and recognizing that there are instances worth taking a longer look at.To briefly interject: This was the main thrust of clarification requested for in that thread (admittedly never explicitly asked, only implicitly).

Between the ticket referred above and further clarification ("We act on irrefutable content... so long as it's directly relevant or of exceptional gravity"), the answer's presumably the second. Does that sound correct?
Not to be dense (I've never used any categorization for this site) but where are you referring to? Browse?Couldn't categories be fixed a little bit? I don't know if you're aware but even users under 18 have to scroll all the way down the list of fetishes before finding "general furry art" for their SFW pieces, it's a category I use a lot as well and pretty often I misclick fucking "watersports".
Maybe at least place "General furry art" at the top of the list even tho it's probably not the most popular category on this pile of filth?

It's here, in the submit section. I tried also in SFW mode, it's identical. I just imagine being 13 and wanting to put my cutesy pokemon art in the "pokemon" section, and having to look between paw and pregnancyNot to be dense (I've never used any categorization for this site) but where are you referring to?

I've been an artist on FA since I was 13 and haven't categorized anything. I'm lazy as f when it comes to uploading. I'll check it out.Lowkey really surprised an admin doesn't know about the site's sorting methods...but hey, learning experiences I guess!

Edit: Brought it up to the other staff. Children should not be able to sift through this kind of thing if it's strictly sexual or fetishized. Ty.
When you block someone on FA, I'd love to see it so that you can't see any of the submissions made by that person. I've seen some truly heinous art that I wish I could scrub clean from any galleries or searches I happen to come across.
