Alright well I think this is a little enjoyabe story that shows the connectivity of some of the fandom.

Last Night me and my GF were at Quaker Steak for tuesday all you can eat wings, Buckeye BBQ ftw, and we were hanging out with some of our non-furry friends. The one had invited a couple of his friends along, and we made jokes about friends outside the circle. So finally when they arrive the car she was driving broke, and while they were seing if they could fix it, they had made an off comment remark if someone's furry butt was here they could fix.

I don't use Bing, but someone on Twitter pointed out to me that yesterday's front page on Bing featured badly drawn leopards:

Feel free to draw your own conclusions about cheetahs, leopards, and modern search engine technology.

Folks may have just noticed that I threw the switch to bring this entire website over to the new URL:

http://www.pa-furry.org/

This will be the new URL of the website going forward. Any attempts to load a page from http://pa-furry.claws-and-paws.com/ will be redirected to the new URL.

Questions and answers:

Do we need to log in again?

Yes. Your previous login cookie was for the domain claws-and-paws.com. Obviously, pa-furry.org is an entirely new domain. You will only need to do this once.

Has anything else changed?

Nope! The same code and data is still running on the same webserver.

That said, I have some more upgrades planned for this site, which will be announced separately.

Enjoy! :-)

Even though this isn't my event, and I have nothing to do with it, I would like to make sure everyone was aware that prereg was open for wpafw. Register now and save.

Just a heads up to folks, I made a minor tweak to the webserver just now. Formerly, the site could be accessed via the URLs http://pafurry.claws-and-paws.com/ and http://pa-furry.claws-and-paws.com/ (note the hypen) The problem is, Google was indexing both URLs, which meant that duplicate search results were appearing.

So now, any attempt to access the hostname "pafurry" will get redirected over to "pa-furry". You may need to log in after getting redirected, but that should be a one time thing. Let me know if there are any questions, thanks!

This website is primarily (but not exclusively) for furries who live in and around the Pennsylvania area.

Do we have to live in Pennsylvania to join this site?

No, but it helps. :-)

I used to have a blurb here about being from surrounding states, but I've since dropped that requirement, as we've had people from far and wide come here... and contribute to the website. This humble site admin figures that if someone is an active member of the community here, who are we to argue with that?

Do we have to be part of the furry fandom to join this site?

No, if you consider yourself "furry friendly" or are just curious about furry in general and would like to speak to/interact with members of the furry comunity, you are welcome to join this site.


Okay, I joined the site. Now what?

Why not introduce yourself? You can make a post to the forums or just write a blog entry. Tell us a little about yourself, how you found the site, if you are furry yourself or just furry-friendly, etc. We won't bite, honest. :-)

For suggestions on what you should include on an introduction post, please read the article called Making An Effective Introduction.

Other users' introductions can be read here.

This is a sample blog entry.

Note how it looks similar to a forum post. When writing a blog entry, the interface for making a blog entry is also similar to a forum post.

Blog entries can also be replied to in the same way as a forum post. And new blog entries show up on the Recent Posts page. (Again, the same as the forums)

Enjoy!
