I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I didn't want to look through all the ban replies and whatnot. stuff like that is going on in another forum I frequent and its depressing.

Anyway, why do you limit the number of PM's members can receive? And if my inbox is full and I receive a message does it show up when I delete old messages and if not, what happens to it?

I personally find the limit to be kind of annoying but I'm not sure on others thoughts and I'm sure there's a logical reason behind it.

The limit is to prevent server strain. We have to pay to keep the site up and running and having people with lots of old pms in their inbox takes up a lot of server space, or people sending rapid fire pms cause server strain making the forum more expensive to run. That's why there's a limit ^^ the pm system is not meant to be used like a chat site, so best to get your friends discord/telegram etc and chat there

So is this site inactive at times but active at others? Or has the community been asleep for some time?

A lot of our members are in the US so there's usually a dead period when its night here, if thats what you mean ^^
We're really slow compared to popular furry sites (Amino, Instagram etc) but thats part of what makes us unique  :blush-fox:

I know this was basically already asked, but it's been a few months and the answer could change.
Admins, what's your plan with saving this site? FT is dying, and you can't deny that. FT Stats say the activity has been decreasing steadily, and the monthly activity has become lower than average compared to past years, which invalidates the "dead period" excuse.

Not sure yet. Honestly I don't know what people hope to gain by continually pointing this out, we are MORE than aware of the stats :/

Is there an idle timer on FT for how long it counts you as ‘on’?

I'm not an admin, so I could be wrong, but I've heard that it's 15 minutes.

Since the Retired Staff role/rank/tag is for staff who have "stepped down in good standing", when would a staff member not get this and who would be an example, if you don't mind me asking?

Sorry for neglecting these for so long! But here's for the last three that got asked.

Is there an idle timer on FT for how long it counts you as ‘on’?

Yea, I believe it's a 15 minute timer from the last activity that you had on the site.

What are the plans for the news bar messages? I miss seeing them.

Unsure, I would definitely like to do something with them, I'm just strapped for ideas currently.

Since the Retired Staff role/rank/tag is for staff who have "stepped down in good standing", when would a staff member not get this and who would be an example, if you don't mind me asking?

Think of it in terms of being fired versus quitting on a good note(like leaving due to just not having the time for the site anymore). If there was something that happened to cause a staff member to be removed from staff due to behavior or their behavior went south after leaving, they would not be eligible for the rank. I hold this in a similar mindset as bans, and I really would not want to call anyone out and just put them on blast if it can be helped.
