Ch-Ch-Changes - ?
#1

Wish this place was more active!

You know sometimes things get dredged up every now and then. And this could be one of those moments. What am I talking about? I'm meaning the buyup of FA by IMVU. Me personally I don't support nor agree with this buyout. Though I'm not going to leave FA - at least not yet - any big change towards it just being about $$$ or the like and I'm not staying! I can think of several questions/problems this IMVU buyout poses and unfortunatly not any of them are good.

But it reminds me of something. I'm reminded that this website's predecessor (bigfurs, not FA) lasted only about 3 or 4 years from memory. That was lofty bearing and you know the closedown message from LB is visible (I think) 10 years after it shut down. How time flies - !

So - thinking about it all - a quick timeline. For me it runs like this -- late 90s yahoo clubs(remember those?). Late 90s to early 2000s macrophile.com (I left back in the early 2000s, possibly 2003). Early 2000s to 2005 - LB. Then in later years here and FA. The future -- ?

I'm really just writing this here almost as a sort of note or reminder to be honest. Could we all about to be loosing our place/home on furaffinity for example? Maybe BF gets pressed back into use at a later date? Maybe someone'll start LB version 2? :-)

Any thoughts?

Sorry for resurrecting an ancient thread .... but has anyone noticed if you go to lofty-bearing.org you now get an anthro grey wolf like creature wandering around an orange backdrop? :-)

Yes, but I've never been there before. Also curious, with the recent deviant-art clone FA has become and the mandatory Google Recaptcha, have you reconsidered leaving FA? I deleted all my content there after the redesign seeing the need to rip the band aid off before it's too late. Apparently that was a good choice as I can't even log back into FurAffinity anymore without endlessly click on busses or ATTENTION REQUIRED | ONE MORE STEP. Some friends have recommended InkBunny to me and USENET furry newsgroups have seen a decent amount of activity. It would be neat if bigfurs had NNTP access.
