No more FA uploads

Since people from FA are following me here and on SoFurry, I'm making this a cross-post.

Due to some rather major rudeness and disturbing things happening on FA/FAF, I won't be uploading ANYTHING on FurAffinity anymore. On top of that, I'll be pulling all of my works down from there as soon I'm able to. I won't go into detail as to why, but let's just say something finally pushed me over the edge with that place.

I just don't feel I can trust FA anymore. Not with what's been happening.

Someone told me that not only did they flip flop on the rules.. but Sonic art is now banned.. so they've begun banning fanart too.

*hugs* It likely won't. It mostly has to do with being unable to trust FA anymore.

Trust how?

For one, inconsistent rule enforcement. Some people had aged-up adult Sonic art pulled while others didn't, some people have had chibi adult art pulled while others are seemingly immune.  They even said they won't make a guideline because "they'll know it when they see it", and it's entirely up to mod discretion.  Hell, Digital Toys and Digital Love were pulled without notification, meaning that I can't even tell if they were breaking a rule or not.

For another, the mods and admins have taken on a "Screw you, it's our site, you have no say" attitude as of late.  I understand it's a private site, but their hostility towards users that even just disagree with them has been growing like mad since the latex in photos ban.  I have to ask myself, "If something happens on the site and I need their help, can I trust that the staff will be there to help?"  In the case of FA and FAF, I feel the answer is a no.

Um, I'll say this, your stories are not against any FA rules and should not have been pulled.

I know, but someone on the site apparently thought they did.  Like I said, inconsistent rule enforcement.

I will agree with that. They just have to respond to whoever reports something.
The problem is that most furries are on FA instead of this place for a variety of reasons. This crowd makes the site difficult to manage. But it's your choice to be there or not.

FA's been around a bit longer, and because of all the drama, more furries hear more about FA than the other sites.

Considering IB, SF, and TNSC [one I run] have a lot less drama, furries don't hear much about it till the ppl they follow suddenly go on FA and go "I'm leaving, if you wanna find me, go to [insert other site here]"

That's the only real way these other sites are growing any.

FA is inconsistent, but there's another site I was completely banned from for something I mentioned on ANOTHER site.
