Pittsburgh's Monthly Fur Meet!
When: Thursday, March 12, 2009
Time: 7-9pm
Where: Panera Bread, 7217 McKnight Road, Ross Twp, PA 15237

Due to the ever decreasing amount of space for us at the Panera in Oakland, we're taking the event to the Panera Bread in Ross Township. With the move to the new digs we get to finally take advantage of their Private Meeting Room!

Come and relax with friends old and new; break out your sketchbook and be creative over a warm cup of chai; play cards or other table top games; or open your laptop and surf the net over the free wireless connection.

The meet is what you make of it, so come on out and have some fun with fellow Pittsburgh Area furs! Don't forget to bring and show off your con badges if you have them! It at least helps us know who you are on the inside. Smile

For more information and directions, visit http://www.swiftsden.net and scroll down to the section titled "Monthly Fur Meets."

Hope to see you there!

Hey everyone,

I've had some folks ask my recent what's going on with the site, and am I still maintaining it?

The answer is yes, I am still running the website. Sadly, it is long overdue for some upgrades, and a move to a much faster server. I hope to have that done sometime in the next weekends, as my schedule permits.

Watch this space for more info and announcements.

Hello Pittsburgh Area Furs!

In case you hadn't heard, we've been having monthly Fur Meets on the second Thursday evening from 7-9PM at the Panera Bread on the Blvd of the Allies in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh.

We're breaking away from that mold in August and taking the meet to Pittsburgh's largest video arcade and game center. Games N-At, http://www.gamesnat.com/, is on the South Side and offers game play ALL NIGHT for $8! (Unlimited play does not apply on duck pins and ticket games.) They also have a small, but well stocked and reasonably priced snack bar on site.

The Chairfurs met last weekend and the specific order of business was centered around finalizing the updates to the website including hotel information, reviewing progress on our advertisement for Morphicon and Anthrocon's con book as well as loose flyers, and approving our 50% Programming Grid. (Yeah, I said Programming Grid.)

Hello Friends!

I’m here to remind you the Western Pennsylvania Furry Weekend, http://www.wpafw.org, is being held Columbus Day weekend, October 6-8, 2006, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
But time is running out! Event pre-registration will close in exactly one month and after that the cost to attend the event and reserve a room at the hotel will go up measurably. So what are you still waiting for?

Hey folks,

I did a minor interface change to the website and made all of the blocks on the right hand site of the page optional. This means that you can control whether the "Recent comments", "Active forum topics", "Who's new", and "Who's online" blocks appear. If you don't like seeing them all the time, you can just turn them off!

To change the available blocks:

1) Make sure you're logged in click the link on the left that says "my account".

2) Click the tab across the top of the page that says "edit"

3) Go down a page or two to where it says "block configuration". If you want to see a block, make sure there is a check in the box next to it, otherwise uncheck the box.

4) Click "submit" at the bottom of the page. Changes will take effect immediately.

Enjoy!

Welcome to the Pennsylvania Furries website! This website was built with the Drupal publishing system. Some reasons that Drupal was chosen over other Content Management Systems include:

  • Forums that are integrated with the rest of the website. No need to create a seperate account just to get into the forums.
  • The ability to leave comment on nearly any page on the site. Even this one!
  • Drupal lets you "promote" any article or forum post to the front page. This is useful when someone announces an upcoming furmeet to give it additional exposure.
  • There are some really neat modules available for Drupal that can be used to add more features to the website.

Enjoy the new website, feel free to lend a paw, and please let us know what you think!
