I'm totally new here but this place seems to be dead... I saw posts from 2015 but it seems to be that this site did exist before that too... my question now is, what did I miss? what kind of place whas this at its golden time? was it popular, what did fluffballs use to do here, simply everything. I simply wanna know what I missed...

It was vibrant, but declining when I got here. Drama happes, and furrs leave, then other furrs come and go. Those that stay a while get known, then seem to drift away... remember when the chat was always 'occupied', and often so busy that it moved almost too fast to keep up. 

 

Pop into the Yiff chat, there are still a few of us around...

If you can't handle drama then you can't handle living life. People that complian about drama are making it. I can garuntee that. It's a question of wherever people pretend otherwise or are honest about it.

Drama isn't the problem. Censership is. One of two things likely happened. 1: The mods got too strict and people left because of blame, grudges and resentment. As often happens when mods only care about the rules. Tends to be what happens. I wasn't around enough (wish I had been though), so I don't know for sure. 2: The mods became inactive. Which I think might be more likely. I was around a bit years ago and it did seem to be the case. So it's quite possible that the site died off due to inactive staff.

If the site invites strong opinions (that means listen to the hard topics) even if in disagreement, and encourages people to join then the site might become active again. Discord channels. Other furry sites (the few that remain). Furcadia and Second Life. Twitter. Facebook. If the site is advertised in these locations then it could get active again. It does have a search function and a forum. I actually got into Furcadia when I saw a real life poster in the street too. It's got to be advertised somehow.

There's also the fact people got paranoid about getting into trouble because of search functions and ASL years ago. I say let people choose as they will. As long as there's warning and informing then it covers that. The law won't actually come down hard on such things. Pounced.org got so paranoid it took down its site. If people give into fear and paranoia then people will only live in fear. People are already using phones to meet up with strangers anyway. Do they get banned next? If people go "We have a choice" then the law can't do jack shit. Just as long as any potential risks/danger is made clear. I can garuntee the law has better things to do. It's when people run black market sites that it will actually calmp down (silkroad for example. Drugs are one thing but guns are another).

There's also the fact people tend to migrate to discord. So people are probably wondering why even use a forum at all. What does the site have to offer that you can't get in a discord chat room? There's the key factor at play.

Oh man. Where do I begin? Most of the furr friends I made on furrtrax got banned or stopped using the site. We all moved onto better social sites at the time. (telegram, discord, whatsapp etc) SO! when the site first started there were plenty of populated chatrooms. You could lurk and everyone would be chatting away. Wanted a more private convo? Drop a private room. Everyone loved it. 

 

My personal opinion, furrtrax had horrible mod/admins. Censorship was horrid and Xander did not like to be questioned. //shrug// c'est la vie.

 

Love ya guys~!
