What Do You Use Your FA Account For?
« on: May 10, 2009, 11:20:47 pm »
For those of you who have FurAffinity accounts, what do you primarily use yours for?  Displaying your own art?  Or displaying art of your character(s) created by other artists?

...Not much else to say in the first post, just sort of randomly curious :-)

I use it (currently) for my art of my fursona, though maybe i'll put some other stuff on there eventually. But first i'd have to become a better artist.

A little bit short of nothing, since I had it set as my real age and I can't draw to save my life, it's usefulness is no different than if I just went on fA signed out.

Yay lurking!

I use it mostly for the watchlist, keeping track of artists I like.  Every once in a while I'll post up one of my writings, but not a lot.  I need to actually /write/ to post something, though.  Should start doing that more...

I only have one because I like signing up for things. I was on there looking at some cool stuff and I decided that I might as well become a member. I do plan on putting some of my compositions on there later, but for now it's mostly just seeing what other people have made.

I use it to favorite stuff and watch people.

To post my art and, lately, my stories too. From time to time I go wondering through FA - but most of it freaks me out.

I already have a Deviant Art account that I don't use, I really don't need an FA one. Also, after the whole "cub porn" fiasco I refuse to even acknowledge the place as a serious depository of art.

It's just a porn bunker like VCL (sp?) turned into.

I use it to post my grayscale stuff in it, along with a scant of colored drawings.

I also use it to examine other people

My account is currently just a big watchlist. The majority of that is just friends, half of which don't ever submit anything.

I usually post all the art that I've gotten done, plus message those who i think I'd get along with. Recently my messengers have been flooded with people I've met from FA.

Displaying art, one day.  Hopefully music, as well. :3

I've really considered deleting my FA account. I do have the mature filter blocked off, but I guess it just doesn't appeal to me that the only people that watch me are the people with horrible porn all over their FA's.  It makes me feel like that's all they care about.

FA has seriously started to bother me, as well, and I'm hardly even there.  There's some legitimate artists there, but all it seems like is just a furvert-approved DeviantArt.

Well, there's always FurNation, but then there's the whole crazy staffers thing...

As I said, I use the block for mature content and I have not seen anything of that nature once.
