Somehow fitting...  (FA new front page banner)

The new front page banner on FA seems quiet fitting to me after the last couple of weeks and the new bans that are said to be coming.

Taking out all sonic and pokemon adult content even if the characters are depicted as adult is just really asinine.  And what better way to run off another huge section of your user base by banning sonic art.

The front page banner must be an inside joke or a sign of things to come...


Update: 12/07/10  They changed the front page already, I do hope it wasn't cause I pointed out the possibility it was an inside joke.

It amazes me how much people care about imaginary things, yet do nothing for the real counterparts (..if there was a 'real counterpart' to furry cubs). c.c; (I'm commenting on what's been going on at FA, btw.)

The thing that really gets me about this whole mess is that I went to Iraq to defend my country (and fighting G.W. personal war).  I come back and get to see the Westboro Baptist Church outside military funerals verbally abusing and attack the widows and orphans of my fallen brethren.

Some how that is protected but I can't write a fictional story to be share only with like minded individuals even after I made sure to censor and warn readers before hand?!

It makes me ill and I have no reason to support FA if they don't stand for my rights of freedom of speech when I practice them responsibly.   I really think they're done and I feel its for the better.

Unfortunately they'll never see it that way.  All they see is little things in sexual situations and because they don't want it to exist they have to go out and make sure that no one enjoys it, even if it's harmless.  Sometimes I really hate humanity.

As a species we have much to improve on.

its gotta be :/ and like i said on some one else's journal about FA *clears his throat*

'na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goooooooooooooooood bye!'

also this will prolly roll into banning video chars as well and that will prolly be the death blow

They should have went to an adult only site.  There are plenty of other web sites that are adult only and can find finical services.  Trying to be family friendly is what cost them.

Well, technically speaking, it *is* copyright property and the corps that own it would likely not be happy about adult themed art being made, if they were aware of it.

From what I understand, Starling debated not allowing it here before the site went public.

You have a very valid point there.  As a supporter of the various artists here that defend their creative expressions as the intellectual property that they are, I must agree the owners of Sonic and other copyrighted characters have a say if they feel their creations are being use inappropriately.

That's one of the reasons when I write a porn I don't give the character's names.

OCs for the win!

What was the banner image before they changed it?

The banner had Fenner or whoever the raccoon they use, walking off into a forest with a scarf holding his arms around his chest.  He was all alone and leaving a set of footprints in the snow.   It just seemed very I'm all alone now and they change it two days after I comment on it in the AUP discussion forum.

The pic and a comment about no one donating saddled with the ban ax swinging randomly set me off.  It was enough to make me post in the forum.  

*shudders*

yyyyeeeah, I can see how that would strike a bad chord.

Nah, if your comment did have them remove it, then good. It really is kinda stupid if that was intentional to do a poor sad Fender all alone thing when they just ejected a large number of people. :/

Some times I see things other might not realize.

I'd like to think it wasn't intentional and they put it up without pondering how it would look to everyone else at the time.  But it just really seemed a bit too relevant for my tastes.
