"OMG NO UPDATES! THEY SHOULD TELL US WHAT'S GOING ON"
*an admin posts an update*
"OMG WASTING TIME ON THE FORUMS! THEY SHOULD BE SPENDING THEIR WHOLE TIME FIXING THE SITE"

You guys will be pissed either way.

Lol. not really. half of the fa viewers would be miffed but the people who actually have shit to do on FA would be happy with an update.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one it was happening to X3 A friend commented on a picture I did for him, and then his comment was hidden from his own pic. Was all like "Uh... Did he piss someone off? o.=.0"

Perhaps FA cannot afford to hire full-time programmers and webmasters. Perhaps the volunteers have real jobs and real lives. If the issue was pointed out, but no one was exploiting it, there is no reason to down the site. When someone begins exploiting it though, it's time for HOLYCRAPLOCKDOWNMODE!!!1

If you don't like this FREE site that has been GIVEN to you to use, GO AWAY and play on your virus-ridden DA.

It's not that the site is free. We give the site money of our own free will. We're just nice enough to donate so that payment to be on site or for extra features isn't forced upon us. Yeah, sure, not everyone donates, but the fact is people still do. Money is given to those who run the site to help maintain it.

:p I'm sorry, but I don't get viruses on DA. ^^ And people have a right to state what they want. We have real lives, and jobs, too. Some people make a LIVING here. It's to be expected that people would be upset. I'm not saying to go and try to burn down FA or something but there isn't anything WRONG with being upset. No, it's not the END OF THE WOILD, but...but Ship-Wreck was just asking WHY it happened; and there is NOTHING wrong with that, nor is there any reason to be upset about the asking.

It should be expected that loopholes will be exploited; I mean, you know, s'what hackers live for.

You don't represent everyone on FA. Every person has their own opinions and thoguhts on the matter, so just because you take this lightly doesn't mean others will. Especially some artists who need to get information about pictures, post the picture WIP's to make sure their commissioner likes the art they are receiving. There's plenty of reasons for people to be bent out of shape over this.
This forum is moving fast tonight

I would think that the note system is the best way to have 1 on 1 contact with a person through the site
WIPs should be posted to photobucket/tinypic instead of spamming the site with bad sketches
I haven't seen any comments vanish yet, but I don't live on the site like some people apparently do

Maybe because I only watch like, 50 people though I've been here for 4~ years
Still think you should

How about we sum that up with, "Games are addictive in general???" Now, if I do say myself, I have some Bejeweled to play MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. And I seriously should go to bed. Sometime.
 
Wow, I am very appalled at how much people do not seem to take this seriously. You just blame the Admins and Mods for being 'stupid' for making a new feature that could be useful for messages that are just bothersome no matter what. You guys sound like you don't even care if FA gets repaired or not. You're free to think whatever you want on this, but to me, FA is a site used a place for furry art of all kinds. It shouldn't be treated as a porn site in my eyes. Just as a popular place for furries to hang out and present their art potential.

I'm sorry, but I don't care what you think of me, but I shall wish all of the admins the best of luck in fixing this problem. We're all normal, we all make mistakes, it's a way of life, the admins cannot be perfect with making changes 100%, and I forgive them for that. 'Neer, Fender, and every other mod and administrator of FA, you have my luck in fixing the problem, and I thank you very much for at least trying to do something about it. Without you working for us, well, we don't know what'd happen but we thank you for working to help us out.

I know nothing about coding, but I'm curious. I'm sure there are FA members with plenty of knowledge of coding, and willing enough to help Yak out in that department. Why don't the admins take in a couple of coders and allow them to help? Surely that would make things easier for Yak?

That is a very good suggestion, but the admins would need to find a way for the outside help not to exploit the coding once they are done.

That's (sort of) been discussed. The problem is no one can come to a consensus about 2 major issues. 1) Repair FA as we know it or build from scratch 2) What frikken language to use in either case.

I read through a lot of the Ferrox development forum, and some of the code. It's a mess.

Not caring for a feature =/= not caring about the site's status.

I would like to have my FA run like it's supposed to, but I could care less about hiding comments, because it's just going to get abused.

..........That was my point! FA is in admin mode. Can't check notes now can you? In case you don't know. No...You can't. And as far as WIP's and hwo they are shown, no one has to do it one specific way. That's just how YOU think it should be done. Your opinion, not how everyone else does it. And a WIP could be just the lineart after inking. I've seen some amazing WIP's posted and I loved them. But again, it's to each their own on how things are done. People do not need to meet your expectations on how things are to be done on FA or otherwise. Some people make a living, getting paid real cash, for commissions on this site. Try to see from their perspective on how this could ruin and postpone some important things

No, that is categorically not what happened. There is no publicly known exploit for gaining control of an admin or anyone else's account, as far as I am aware.

Hackers are not magicians.

I'm sure that could be done (with no magic needed), but why go to all the trouble when they make exploiting the site in other ways so easy?
