Welp here comes the downfall of FA

by
I swear I read through their AUP this morning before I wrote the other journal and it looks like they inserted a phrase in that that has epic meaning making it even more a piece of jackassery

ferals having sex are now banned unless they are over 18 unless they are MENTALLY feral as well on FA

WTF???? that bans any feral who isn't a a true animal, so all canine (lifespan , feline, rodent (lifespan 3 yrs), birds (10-15) rabbits (10) kangeroos (9) etc are banned if they talk

even if they think like humans at all

so in one sweeping move they just banned almost all cartoon feral animals

Bye bye Balto, Bambi, Alex from Madascagar, Garfield and Odie, Puss in Boots, Tom and Jerry, Timon, Simba, Lady and the tramp, anyone in all dogs go to heaven, etc

the list goes on.....you can now be banned for posting a pic or story with any of these and many more chacters having sex

do i sense the next major wave of immigration away from FA?

gonna go screen capture the AUP before they change it more

so comment and let's play a game and come up with other characters that are now banned there

This makes me laugh and hard:


All Visual Art

  *  Not Permitted
      *  Text submitted as a visual submission

Very vague and ambiguous if you ask me. Guess that means all art is now illegal on the site?

Then why not just refer to it as such?[

if that is the case, then make it clear, otherwise, the wrong admin with be going on a deletion spree worse than than the one when they banned cub porn and had members delete their own art submissions.

Problem with terminally vague rules like this one is that the writers almost always seem to presume you somehow magically know exactly what the eff they mean by it.

As I said over on Sofurry.
Furaffinity's been coughing up blood for years, with the trolls, poor staff, lack of maintenance/progress and Neer's attitude/poor leadership its a miracle the site is still there.
With pointless changes like this he's risking FA geting hacked again, just like it got hacked when he banned cub.

In Neer's position and FA in its current condition, Sofurry running at near 100% and new sites like Weasyl popping up he really can't play silly b*stards like he has in the past.
The so called abuse he took off the staff at furfright (If that really happened) is proof that Neer is living on borrowed time and people are seeing through his bull sh*t.

This journal.

I'm tempted, but not desperate enough, to ask someone for a Weasyl invite just to jump ship.
Yiffox

youre here, you got one foot off the ship already....I moved here and sofurry more heavily with their first stupid bans...btw i asked neer 2 yrs ago that his under 18 rule meant almost all ferals and sonic would be banned, and fan art would be virtually killed

he said that was ridiculous  XD

Bye bye FA.

" Dragoneer: Do they talk, speak or otherwise act like a human through their speech action (e.g. Lion King, Land Before Time) then they'd fall into that category.

ooo OOO  ask him if MLP is banned too and if so, is this a clever plot to begin the third and final major migration from FA to send FA flaming down into destruction

Well, I was thinking "typo" or "mistake", but NVFM. >.>
But honestly, they can't be accused of "nazism", and that's not a word one should throw around like that.
Anybody here tried talking with the admins about this? It could potentially clear a lot of things up.

*EDIT*
Umm, people on FA have always edited the cartoon characters they use to make them of age, ever since the "cub" ban, I doubt anything's gonna change.

*EDIT*
EVEN THEN,  I doubt it means chronological years. Local biological years makes a whole bunch more sense and could shut up everyone here. :D

In a few days they will probably change the aup again without a notice and remove the feral stuff. it's what they did about the cub stuff in the last aup update.

That's it, I was trying to be nice, I was trying to be tollerant. But now FA has even made this Brony give up on them in sheer frustration, and that is a feat in itself. Now, I could see the Cub Nam IF it was due to their server providers not wanting it, I could forgive them breaking the law by not telling us about the tracking cookies, and I could stretch my patience and acceptance to the Sonic Porn Ban because Mobius Unleashed is zealous about their art (Which is their right) and wanted no chance at all for Mobius art to hit the site (true that's like treating Poison Ivy with amputation, but we've never given FA credit for being the sharpest knives in the drawer). But THIS, I mean REALLY THIS!?!? щ(ಠ益ಠщ)

If that's the case then have this FA (Which from this point on should mean Fail Assured) 凸(⊙▂⊙✖ )

Now to write the journal that will get me permabanned there, Mwhahahaha   ψ(`∇´)ψ

Holy shit!  Seriously?  Ferals now?

How the fuck does that make any lick of sense?  Cubs is one thing.  Cartoons, fine.  "Under-aged" Humanoid characters, okie-dokie-lokie.  But Ferals?!  If they are cubs to begin with, then that's a no-brainer.  But if it's true about all ferals, then FA is going to shatter in seconds.

Come to think of it, My Little Pony are considered feral too.  They do walk on four hooves and all...I bet that's why the AUP is up!  Fuckin haters.  One banner is all it took for this to happen.  LOL

well actually horses live to be 30...so they could potentially be overaged, and celestia is +1000 so they actually are exempt....but it drives a stake through fan art....no simba, no balto, and then it gets tricky.....if it walks on 2 legs part of the time, then which is it, a furry or feral  (Alex from Madagascar or Tom and Jerry or Brian from Family guy for example, we know brian doesnt live to be over 15)

ok to my reason to FH (Feralheart) i foundout that i tried to tell them to stop having sex in game but they can't is because they were doing something bad, although i really hate game-sex but i liked picture-sex. so thanks for this note man.

So much time spent banning and no time spent to get us something to clean "deleteds" from favs lists.

Also according to a "pagliacci" kitty the bullies over there are among those not being banned.  Haven't met these bullies myself though.

I've seen it suggested that the main reason for the feral policy is to eventually go after My Little Pony art.

Ban anyone not mentally 18?

MLP. Lauren Faust has said that they're not adults, although has been vague about the exact ages. The fact that she said that they're not adults pretty explicitly indicates they're not 18 though.
Yiffox

no the only under 18 ferals apparently allowed to have sex are those that are mentally animals, but who writes stories or arts about real wolves fucking, this is furries not animal planet

so talking wolf, banned, real wolf ok

WTF is with all this hair splitting? If they're going to do this on FA then either ALL FERAL is okay or NONE OF IT IS OKAY. WHY SO ARBITRARY!!!!?
Yiffox

well they basically banned most feral that counts, those that are furries and can talk or think like humans and dont live to be over 18

I still see some MLP ferals.

It doesn't effect me personally, but it still sucks that others are being hassled like this
Yiffox

well of course logic doesn't matter....but really after this new rule, the only adult art that will pretty much be left will be original over 18 characters and bipedal fan art (which could be next as they copyright infringement)  maybe theyre slowly weening FA off adult art

Hate to break it to them, but they will NEVER be able to break the association with porn. The site will be FOREVER associated with porn until the site undergoes new management with ABSOLUTELY NO LINKS to porn and just gets rid of it on day 01.

I posted a comment in the thread someone posted a link to in the previous journal to this, saying "I'm glad I only post art of original adult characters.  well, implied adult.  as in, I thought of them, and I say they're adult."  if someone gets any of my stuff banned there, I've been a good boy, and banhammers hurt like you know what.

I have despised FA for a long time now. It's run by a bunch of assholes.
Stumpycoon

Don't forget their marvellous hypocrisy powers.  With all their other rulings, they have applied the rules selectively.  

For example during the great purge of rubbersuits that saw a diaspora of rubberfurs to Fetlife, some remained welcome on FA...mainly because they didn't cause drama or they got on well with certain admins.  The rules for adult suits stem from the different set of rules for pornography (photos and vids) than adult artwork (drawings and flash) but beyond the TOS it's all administrator's discretion.

Similarly they said they would not allow any sexual cub art but it's still prevalent there.

And how do you draw age?  Would an obviously mature critter be "over the equivalent age of 18" or "under the chronological age of 18"?  

What about the pic' of my mate (a rat) and I as ferals?  Would that mean we're underage in that picture despite clearly still being 'us' just as ferals?  Or would the "they are adult furries with adult characters" aspect carry through and make that picture okay?

The golden rule of FA is that it's admin's choice.  And from the rubberfurs purge, we know the more drama the more administrator attention.

well in their glorious new age of caring about the rules and codes of conducts for the admins.... I complained about Summercat permabanning me from the FA forumds for daring to ask why dragoneer reversed himself on the sonic issue when he said the under 18 would not apply to anthros, I specifically mentioned the rule could apply to sonic and ferals, 2 yrs ago

a week later sonic was banned....so summercat banned me for asking this for the second time on forums, they closed the first thread no answer because she didnt like the TONE of my post, it violates no rules, but she did it anyway

this is a clear violation of their rules, when supposedly they have to consult for a ban, and you have to have pts etc etc, I had no pts that I knew of, was never banned from the forums before, as I hardly even go there, except when board is down, or new AUPs are discussed.

Their ruling on her action?  admins have the discretion to literally do what they want if they feel its necessary to prevent disruption, so rules?  we dont need rules, we can ban you if you feel you disrupt things, which basically means if they feel like it.

Can you imagine if the US gov did that?  we can declare martial law and take away your rights, cuz you said something  uh huh that's FA for you
Blackraven2

nah. I don't think it has to be interpreted that way. Granted I only read the actual AUP from the link at the bottom of the page, not any more detailed forum entries that they spiced with their admin's mental diarrhea.

in the actual AUP it says:
What we don't permit:
...
All media:
...
depicting of minors (humanoid or feral adolescents who act/behave like humans) in sexual situations

If I write a story of a hypothetical world with feral but sentient mice, with a lifespan of 3 years that mature with 2 and a half month, then a one year old adult mouse - however naive - would certainly not be considered minor.

Of course you could argue that FA's admins could argue differently, but then I would argue against that that FA's admins argue and act inconsistently, unpredictably, unfair and however they want ANYWAY - so that argument's void ;)

Yiffox
6 years ago
the thing is ....no one does art or stories about absolutely feral mice.  How would you even know how feral thinking mice behave....there's inevitably some anthropomorphism....what they are saying is any FURRY ferals, those that think like humans and usually can speak a human language are banned if a minor

the whole minor term is bad because THERE ARE NO MINOR FERALS...minor generally means beneath legal age....do we have laws for ferals?

see above post where the admin in charge of this admitted they make the language vague in their words to cover more situations that arise, but in actuality, only confuse users and do not give clear guides to what is allowed.  IE they are morons.

and why would puppies having sex be more acceptable to them if they did not speak a language?  does that make any sense at all?  Puppies fucking, ok, add word balloon?  bad...no sense at all

if they want to ban immature ferals, SAY SO,,,,no immature ferals....its far less words too

yeah, I think they confused themselves. A feral mouse thats 2 years old is of course mature in the biological sense. It's also feral, so any legal considerations of mature or not don't apply.

But if the mouse has human intellect, then some idiot might indeed have the idea to apply the term "legally mature" which implies a certain age (the exact age I think depends on the country and legal system - I don't know about the US, maybe it even depends on the state?) which of course rises some tricky questions - if you have a feral - or furry dog - would you count to 18 in dog years or human years?  ;)   the UAP as its printed makes no sense, but it could be interpreted in any way.

Long story short, it doesn't matter. You can always interprete it in your favor, and if an FA admin wants to fuck you, you are fucked anyway, because they do what the fuck they want with the old and the new AUP  ;)

just wait until they change the AUP again.

I have a story with a character that gets reborn - repeatedly - in the body of an infant feral - every time she dies - but with all the sentience and memory (and maturity) of hundreds of years alive. I would have no clue wether that char could have sex now or not on FA, but even bothering about this details is not worth my time.

As I said, if an admin wants to fuck me because of it, I'm fucked anyway  ;)
