    Art publishing, as well as written story publishing.

    Guess I'm like that on pretty much all places I go though. "Who cares about the main site?! TO THE FORUMS!"

    One this Weasyl does a lot better is the Forums. FA Forums is basically Lord of the Flies.

    I hardly ever visit FA's main site. The way to do FA seems to build watchlists, and create your own network of contacts. Basically, you end up making your own personal site within FA.

    The reason people flock to FA pretty much begins and ends with "Because everyone else is there". It's like a big city. Everything's old, and they don't fix the streets as often as they should. There's too much crime, and everything costs too much. but this is where all the opportunities are, so that's where you go. Think of FA as the Gotham of furry sites.

    Main sites are for art sharing and whatnot, obviously. I go there to post mine and look at others art. Whatever I see that catches my eye I favorite and comment. It's an infinite web of random artists or nonartists but occasionally you find a cool person and may even briefly talk to them.

    The forums, however, seem better for general conversations as there are already topics set and people to respond to
    Howl 'Havoc' and let slip the wolves of war

    Someone is literally putting forth more effort into taking down a buncha silly furry people sites than some of the more politically involved DDoS attacks that have happened in the past. That's... baffling.

    Don't worry they'll fix it with the next FA update. :V
    Not to me...

    It's easier and more fulfilling to crusade against a harmless, fluffy target like furry websites than to do something like try to target and disrupt, say, human trafficking. They can all exchange high fives about how cool they are for cleaning up the Internet, and they never had to look at anything truly ugly in the world, do hard work, or fear a backlash (assuming they can cover their tracks, anyway).

    Honestly, the biggest thing keeping me from really settling here is the forced use of cropped thumbnails. It's just too big of a deal breaker for me. I want to see a small version of the full piece so I can decide if it's worth looking at full-screen. Cropped thumbnails are just too misleading nine times out of ten and I absolutely hate that there's no way to disable them (least there wasn't last time I was here).

    Otherwise it's just a nicer looking fA complete with an overabundance of porn, and incredibly spammy 'streaming' messages. I don't see much of a reason to use this gallery as much when dA and fA cover both ends of the spectrum and have a bigger audience base.

    Well not going under every time a DDoS attack goes down is one plus.

    You could probably suggest that as a feature and it would get implemented. That's not a bad idea imho.

    Suggestions would eventually change the site until the point that it's basically FA sans Dragoneer, which wouldn't be a bad thing, in my opinion.

    Like saying "an ocean ecosystem sans water"

    which is to say, a hell of a fuck different

    Yeah, I think emulating FurAffinity isn't a wise goal. It's not just Dragoneer who's to blame for its problems, but the creaky design and poor maintenance as well. Weasyl, InkBunny, and FurAffinity were all taken down by DDOS attacks. Because Weasyl and InkBunny do routine site maintenance, they recovered from the attacks pretty quickly. Because FurAffinity just waits for problems to happen, it hasn't, and likely won't for several days.

    FA should be the poster child of what not to do when running a furry art site. It's the Goofus to Weasyl's Gallant.
