What do you like about FT?
« on: July 26, 2008, 10:24:11 pm »
I saw Xalex's topic and started thinking myself about why I like this place. Why not share what you like about FT?

- You can bump old topics. On many forums if you bump up a topic you get yelled at, or if you make a new topic on something already discussed a long time ago you get yelled at.

- The mods and admins post. A lot of others forums I go on, even small ones, they don't seem to post often.

- People here are friendly. I have yet to see anyone who is always rude here. On another non-furry forum I frequent, it's full of rude, sarcastic and spoiled 12 year olds who complain when their parents didn't get them a $400 phone or a $300 purse.

- It's not large and where the only thing that determines weather to read a post or not is post count.

- It's just fun here! I mean, when we got off topic and talked about boobs in the Furry Sexuality thread, that had me go to sleep with a smile.

Your turn... Why do you like this place? What makes you stay here?

I've only been here for a short time, but this is one of the best community i've ever seen. which is definetly saying something.
even just coming from a forum where people draw anthros/quads but don't claim to be furries, those are normally terrible xD
this place is amazing so far c:

-Variety of personality in both Mods and Members.  I get the vibe of talking to real people here, rather than just individual internet Anonymi.
-Mods who are not asshats.
- The occasional quality Original Content that surfaces here.
- Nice blokes and good company.
-The fact that there are both smart people and females here is amazing, as both seem to be comparatively rare on the internet.
I also think the whole "furry" thing is a pretty neat part of FT. :P

Mostly, I'd have to say I love the community here.  There's no one whiny or rude here, just a bunch of cool people.  The admins/mods are awesome and active in the community.  Some of the posts here make me think, some make me laugh, but nearly every one gets some response out of me.

Why do I like FT?  Let's see:

- Easy to admin.  This site is relatively free of flame wars and harassment, so aside from moving topics to the right forums, we really don't have to do much.
- You don't hate the staff.  On a lot of forums, including another one I used to admin (that I resigned from), a significant portion of the site's membership seemed to really hate any attempts to maintain order, and the staff members couldn't seem to please anyone.  Here, it's like everyone (for the most part) understands when things need to be done, and it's a much less negative site.
- This is a fun group of furs.  Like someone else said, a lot of forums seem to be plagued with negativity in general, but this one is different.  Most of the members here seem to be happy, friendly, and fun-loving.  And for me, I deal with enough negativity in real life, I prefer to avoid it on the internet.

I've said it before, but I really love this site :-)

Furry Teens was the first furry group I joined. I joined the Yahoo group because it had interesting people and seemed like fun. I joined the forum a while ago, but I really started posting here because the Yahoo group died.

I like this forum because there are so many different boards and threads that there is always something interesting. Also, we have so many members from so many different places that it is interesting to see how they think about things. Also this group is always so active.

I like it here because everyone has a friendly tone, and wont eat you alive for stepping a little out of line T_T. One of the friendliest online-communities I've ever seen. *Huggles everyone*

Indeed...I haven't run across anyone unlikable on this site yet.

1. It is well managed by an incredible mod-staff
2. The people here are very unique and stand up for their opinions
3. No trolling at all usually.
4. People are ready and willing to help.
5. Admins and mods actually post!

A better question would be what don't I like about FT?

because people aren't retards, and will genuinely look out and give honest advice for eachother. Discussions stay discussions, not fights. The relaxed, unjudging and welcoming atmosphere and use of common sence =)

People here are real cool, theres difference whilst being similar, if that makes sence. And they help, like they did for me in the army thread.

Why do I like about Furry Teens? Well...

-It was the first truly furry group I've joined, so I guess it's a bit special to me.
-Unlike other forums I've joined, this one is very active and has a steady influx of new members.
-A steady flow of new topics! It doesn't get stale and boring!
-Furry Teens has a easygoing and generally relaxed atmosphere, which is comforting to new members,
-FT completely lacks power-hungry or abusive mods/admins.....thank god.
-Perhaps most importantly, the members of this site are friendly, helpful, and eloquent, attributes that are becoming increasingly difficult to find on the internet today.

Pretty much the same stuff that makes me still list myself as a furry (as opposed to a comic nerd, anime geek, Trekkie, or anything else I like):
The people are awesomely nice people!
The details have already been listed, just generally stuff like open-mindedness (incredibly rare otherwise, unfortunately), calm discussions (dunno about Teen Health and Debate/Discussion though, I've already decided to avoid those to avoid going on an angry rant I'd regret later), and the reason I actually stuck to this specific forum rather than pendeling between ten different ones is because it works (for one, the admins don't get angry when there's a "I know this is probably the wrong board, so could the admins please move it to the correct place" type comments, and you very rarely straight out delete any posts, even if you disagree with them).
Just in general, you guys are awesome! And it's not only the sugar talking (though I suspect it's responsible for my being long-winded and my choice of words)

Addendum, as people have reminded me: This was also the first furry group that I joined, so it does hold something special for me. I've made some awesome friends here that I'd have never met elsewhere, and it was a portal to finding out what the fandom's really like, the reality combined with the info put forth by Wikifur provide a hooge chunk of my information 'bout le fandom.

Well, I like FT because;

- Like many said here, it was the first furry place I joined
- Definitely not as much drama as some other forums, furry or not
- Everyone's usually nice
- Mods don't delete posts just because they don't agree with said post
- This place is fun

And other stuff that I can't think of right now.
