A prediction

All of the cub artists who have said they are leaving forever, will not be creating a gallery on Inkbunny or anywhere else, and will never draw cub porn again...




They'll be back. Eventually. It's not merely a question of that being "the way the fandom's revolving door works" or somesuch... it's the mere fact that if you are enough of an artist to enjoy drawing large amounts of cub art... you will continue to draw it. And eventually, it will make its way online. I'm not saying it'll happen soon; it could literally take years for some.

My prediction will be proven wrong if/when one of them dies before making his/her return and does not have a close friend/relative upload previously unseen drawings.

...Bluh. In my zeal to avoid misinterpretations and clever loopholes, I ended up being way more macabre than I intended to in this particular journal.

*huggles* I know... but I've seen a few artists say they're dropping all galleries. :P Drama if you ask me.

The fandom doesn't need artists who get emo over one site banning legally grey fetishes. :P

So, an artist isn't supposed to get upset over being told he can't draw something and all  related images of it will get deleted from his gallery? Anybody would get upset over that after putting so much time into making art and uploading it there. Yeah...the fandom should have artists that don't say a word and just churning out whatever's acceptable, that's the way every human ought to work. /sarcasm

Way to put words in my mouth!

The art is still there on their hard drives, right? They can upload it somewhere else. Sure, it takes time, but getting all angsty and 'leaving the fandom forever' because you have to do some work?
Whippy

Well, okay, 'leaving the fandom forever' is way too rash and silly for the situation I agree.  I was mainly upset because I have 1,026 images to upload and comment and thumbnail, and reading a comment saying someone doesn't belong because they're "emo" or upset just seemed really out of place to me. When I read the word "emo" I usually take it to mean "emotional for no apparent reason" rather than "behaving and acting irrationally towards people". So going with that second definition, yeah - FA banning cub isn't the furry apocalypse, it's an irritation having to move, upload, and get used to a new place though.

@_@ That's more than ten times what I had to go through! I strongly suggest starting NOW, so you can at least copy and paste descriptions and keywords for MOST of the pics from where they are on FA, at least for the time being.

I spent a big chunk of time today writing AHK scripts to help me download thumbnails and change parts of the html so it would work locally on my PC. Right now I got 1 gallery page with 992 images all on one page ^__^, along with the html page to each image they go to. I couldn't get httrack to work right at all so I had to dump it and do everything nearly manual, but it certainly gives more control over thing than any app ever could.

I'm thinking about writing another AHK app to upload my images here with inkbunny's api. *hopes like hell that's possible*.

And... 1,026? My script-assisted download of your entire Gallery and Scraps page on FA has 1,028 images in the target folder. Miscount, duplicated posts, not reposting two pics, or you dunno?

9_9 1,026 is a miscount on my part, FA has it right - it's 1,028. There were some unfinished downloads in DTA ^^; doh!

I didn't see too many people "leave the fandom forevar" over this.  The cub people are migrating away from somewhere they're not wanted.

Thankfully, I didn't either--but my watchlist is large enough that I did see one or two (I can't even remember specifically more than one, but I could've sworn there were at least two).

Exactly the one I was thinking of. *thinks* WERE there even more in my watchlist, or was Jader the only one that said would be leaving forever? @_@

Of what? A revolving door made of cub porn? Cubs making porn in a revolving door?

Of "Alfador and his Magical 8 Ball of Awesome!"   Though the cubs being naughty in a revolving door is a wild idea too.

A couple of talented artists went away because of the endless trolls. Sadly, Edis Krad is the only one that comes to mind right now.
Alfador

Yup, and he quickly took on a new identity (I'm still not 100% sure whether I should say what, since he's posted a tiny bit AS Edis on Secretmoon, and posted then quickly pulled on his CC account) because he couldn't stay away from cubby art, however non-porn the images were at first.

The one I was most referring to was Jader, who has an account here but said was swearing off cub porn and would not be posting anything new or reposting archives after the ban goes into effect (but has been posting a last few commissions over the past few days).
