Re: The Furry Thread! [Safespace]

I would never use a squeaker (I'd spend too much time playing with it) but I've seen them used well (Honestly, for most people, whatever you do in/with a fursuit in public is seen as cute, unless you're actively trying not to be). People at cons tend to go nuts with squeakers

Re: The Furry Thread! [Safespace]

I wouldn't call myself a furry (yet), but I have been a fan of anthropomorphic animals since I picked up Redwall about six years ago. While reading one book in particular, The Taggerung, I really wanted to jump into the story. When the author passed away I mostly forgot about it. But that wasn't th...

I'm 19 and remember using floppies (but only the 3.5", I've never used any other). Heck, the computer I'm typing from has a floppy drive. Never had a B:\ drive, since I don't think I've ever come across a two-floppy-drive computer. I also remember Zip drives (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zip_...

Re: The Furry Thread! [Safespace]

On furaffinity, you can turn off mature/adult submissions, which makes it nice and easy to only see clean art. It can be useful if you don't want anything suggestive at all, and I think you need to opt in anyway (guests only see clean art).

Might be worth a shot for those who like clean furry art.
