This place

I dunno how to say it, guys, but ever since people I knew or people you all knew left for better places or better lives, the site hasn't been too active except for bots. This place does bring me some nostalgia, though.

Aye, the forums are pretty much dead. I come in twice a day to clean out the bots but even I am unsure why I bother by now...

Yeah. I know. I pop in here once in a while to see what's going on, but mostly I just stay on Tumblr and Telegram now. Still, this was the place that first made me into a furry.

I check back once in a while. I noticed that when Macrokat and those who followed him stopped posting the site went silent. Too bad. :(

I loved this place, and I still intend to post content here whenever it gets done, but... the traffic is just so low I kind of forget to even check back in. Shame, there was a time when I spent so much time here, but it just seems like the crowd is elsewhere. I'm not sure if the website could or should do anything to attract more people back, but as it stands it is a nice time capsule...

And you're doing god's work FoxChess.

Indeed, Foxchess. If you didn't keep an eye on the site the bots would run it over. Many thanks

Yeah. I used to follow him myself, but... The old gods that once roamed this place have moved on to bigger and better things. I know Mac is always busy, though.

Quite. It was where I first became a fur. Still brings back memories.

Gotto say I got small smile on my face seeing a couple responses on here, didn't expect that.

MacroCat still posting art? I don't see them update on FA at all, but I noticed a lot of users seemed to be moving away from FA after that big password messup thing, or maybe for a different reason.

But yeah, this place was just special to me... came here in 2009, shortly after turning 18. One day I randomly searched "macro fur" to see what would come up, barely even knowing much about the human macrophile community, and found that Cashew/Rogue story... which I kinda disliked the ending of a lot, but the idea got me intrigued. Then I joined and perused this place, and I dunno it just always felt right... there felt like such a cool community here, it opened me up to a whole new world. I remember the first story I really loved was DTF's The Wall I think it was called, not that it was finished, but it ws what got me really into macrofur fiction. But it was mostly the people that made this site feel really cool, it was something the big art websites did not have. I don't know if that's something that can be replicated or revived, but it's a nice thought.

Even if the website is done for, I have really fond memories, so there's always that. If I ever get off my bum and continue writing I'll definitely still post here, even if no one reads, butt steel.

Hard to believe it's been so long.
