Advertising the Site
« on: September 03, 2011, 03:49:25 am »
I don't remember any past discussions on this matter, but I was thinking about something.
I found my flashdrive that I store pictures on, and came across one from my first convention:

(I also belong to the Furst State group)

Now, this got me to thinking. I have seen a fair number of people say that they were surprised and happy to find the site, that there was a place for teen furs online. If there were some people here who were surprised to find the site, how many are there who still do not know, but would like to know?

So I would like to propose that we develop a flyer or two, that people can print out and take to meets/conventions, and place in the messege areas.

Similar to what TFS has done, we could take collect some quotes from people, about what they like about the site and link to the site.
Then just post it somewhere where people can have easy access to it, to print it.


Any thoughts on this?

That would be quite awesome, and it's something I've been meaning to do for years, but I'm always so busy before a con that I never get around to making it happen.

If someone were to spearhead an effort to put something like this together, they would have the support of the administration, and I'll personally ensure they get delivered to Anthrocon (currently not attending other cons on a regular basis, but we'll see how things go this year).

Yeah, that seems like a good idea. I hope it would manage to help the forum gain some more publicity and atract new members.

Off-topic:

Quote from: The Furst State poster
"At least it's not Scientology!"
If "The Furst State" is an organisation of some kind. Couldn't it be possible for the Church of Scientology to form a Lawl suit against them? They seem very eager to do that about anybody with something negative to say about their doctorine/practises:

Well, I guess that is motivation.

So, now I need some quotes from people.

As a member of Furry Teens, what do you like about the site, and what keeps you coming back?

And Natasha, do you have a larger version of the FT tab icon? I think that would make a good background.

As a fairly new person here, I love the people here in general.Most everyone is polite, and willing to help when you need it.

I would say that what keeps me coming back is the constant stream of advice that people have and just some of the people I have met on the site. There's always new topics being created that you can relate to, and every time you need help, this community is probably the best to get answers at. Another reason I like Furry Teens is because of how friendly everyone is. Ive met many good friends from across the world that I like to keep in touch with and speak to every now and then, and I'm sure I will make others in the future.

I suppose I come back because I generally like the atmosphere (most of the time) of the site and its purpose of introducing young Furies of all races, genders, sexual orientations, nationalities and beliefs to the fandom. The forum tends to have a friendlier atmosphere than other forums I visit, many of its members are willing to help out others (whether that be tips on artwork, writing and even personal problems) and it is a great place for a discussion and a debate. Besides, I've made a couple of great friends here such as Zenith and Nightf0x.

I come back because I enjoy the community and friendship and such. The forum is full of decent people, and good discussion topics. I mean, i've been a member for nigh on three years so something is right ^^

Like Mik, I keep coming back because everyone's so nice.  Some of the people I've met here have become good friends of mine, like Zenith and Tyla.  And there's always something to talk about, just from the variety of threads.  We've got individuals from all walks of life, gender, race, sexual orientation, and myriad other phrases I can't think of right now.
