April 14, 2019; 11:21 - Reply Carolina_Reaper: Did he leave too? What happened? April 14, 2019; 11:31 - Reply Carolina_Reaper: @Carolina_Reaper: Damn, looks like he really did leave and take all of his art with him. Pity, I kinda liked his comics. April 14, 2019; 11:57 - Reply Papa_Nurgle: @Soulvei: Wait, what? All I knew of the guy was his edits April 14, 2019; 12:17 - Reply sexygoatgod: Man I liked his little comics too April 14, 2019; 12:42 - Reply Fluffy_Angst: WHAT?! Godammit, I liked him. April 14, 2019; 13:21 - Reply SluggiesNotHuggies: What the fuck happened?!! April 14, 2019; 13:40 - Reply Fiberglass: Pity, another decent contributor gone. Oh well. April 14, 2019; 13:49 - Reply MAVVET_CO: The fuck? Come back here this instant April 14, 2019; 15:19 - Reply Carolina_Reaper: @SluggiesNotHuggies: Guessing he got fed up with all of the trolling that's been going on as of late. April 14, 2019; 17:05 - Reply LORD: Dafuq, he left!? That’s some sad news :( April 14, 2019; 18:01 - Reply Fluffy_Angst: @Carolina_Reaper: Yeah. That was unsettling. April 14, 2019; 18:14 - Reply Researcher_7201: @Carolina_Reaper whats disturbing is the lack of visible moderator response. At a time when the community is so shrunken we should be trying to grow the community not further reducing it. I have been spreading fluffy content to other sites and linking back to the booru as an attempt to revitalize the community but its an up hill fight if we keep loosing people. Im not giving up but I hope the mods become more supportive. April 14, 2019; 18:15 - Reply SneakingTail: I don't blame him, I'd leave too if people kept calling me a pedophile over an obvious human-to-fluffy interpretation (Even if it doesn't fit within the site) April 14, 2019; 19:03 - Reply Soulvei: @Papa_Nurgle: He apparently posted a human-style fluffy that was highly disturbing. He also kept posting weird shit after we asked him to stop. April 14, 2019; 19:05 - Reply Soulvei: @Researcher_7201: Yeah, see while we do need more content we *don't* need his kind of content. April 14, 2019; 19:07 - Reply Soulvei: @SneakingTail: And that was his mistake-- it didn't fit within the site. He's welcome to go be gross and weird elsewhere. April 14, 2019; 19:08 - Reply drflowerson: It really does make sense to leave after all that happened in just a week. April 14, 2019; 19:11 - Reply Researcher_7201: @Soulvei I never saw any of this "content" content so I can't speak to it but I did see trolls on his sprite comics that had nothing remotely questionable or nonpermisable. I can only base an opinion on things Ive seen so I will not comment on that. But I will say that something needs to be done to expand the community because we are on a tipping point of losing visibility and this self destruction is not helpful. April 14, 2019; 19:44 - Reply Soulvei: @Researcher_7201: I'm sorry but no, he destroyed himself like many others have in the past. This is nothing new. You didn't see the content because the mods removed it like we're supposed to. April 14, 2019; 20:05 - Reply Researcher_7201: @Soulvei I dont know you from Adam so forgive me for not jumping to believe you on this one. All that aside it would be nice to see more creatures and Im not exactly seeing an effort to encourage that end. April 14, 2019; 20:25 - Reply Soulvei: @Researcher_7201: I've been here for over four years. Who the hell is Adam? April 14, 2019; 20:27 - Reply Pawn: @Researcher_7201: I'm okay with just having fluffies on the Booru. Its literally what the website is all about. Variants have been allowed, but 940 lacked in proper execution. by that i mean he was already under fire for his shenanigans, and immediately after goes for a triple threat posts of non fluffy art, and deplorable concepts. April 14, 2019; 20:37 - Reply Researcher_7201: @Soulvei: Its an old saying meaning I dont know you and there for will not just take your word for something. Not because I dislike or have reason to distrust you but because I also have no reason to trust you and so will not just accept something you say as true without evidence. I hope that explanation clears things up. April 14, 2019; 20:40 - Reply Researcher_7201: @Pawn: All that aside how do we as a community go about expanding the community. We lost a lot of people in quick succession and likely lost more but they wernt vocal about it. How do we stop the bleeding and return to a growing phase. April 14, 2019; 20:54 - Reply FluffyFluff: What the fuck is the point in procrastinating about someone leaving a community? It happens. Communities die. But may fluffies live on forever for the abuse they deserve. April 14, 2019; 21:08 - Reply Soulvei: @Researcher_7201: Again, you're new. The booru loses and then it gains again. As long as someone is willing to host the site and mods are at least somewhat present then the booru will be here to ride the waves of change. We don't go out recruiting people or anything but you're free to bring friends over. April 14, 2019; 21:17 - Reply Soulvei: @FluffyFluff: Yes April 14, 2019; 21:17 - Reply GhostFluff: He posted a lime comic saying lime's owner was a human necrophile and got 2 comments saying how fuck up it was. He then just up and left. Guess he didnt like people looking down on his fetishes. The guy was fucked up. I'm not making this up either. The guy posted it. Look at his final comments. April 14, 2019; 21:19 - Reply Soulvei: @GhostFluff: Yeah his account is still up so his comments are too. April 14, 2019; 21:38 - Reply Researcher_7201: @Soulvei: when I try to look at his comments all I can see is the little preview. If I click to see more I just get the message saying the post has been deleted. How can you see the full comment. April 14, 2019; 21:52 - Reply Soulvei: @Researcher_7201: If it's a comment he made on a deleted post then you won't be able to see it. If it's on a post that's still up then you'll be able to see it. It might take some sifting to find the ones still viewable. April 14, 2019; 22:08 - Reply Researcher_7201: @Soulvei: i looked through but I dont see anything incriminating on any posts that remain and while the absence of evidence is not evidence of absence Im still not convinced. Like I said thought its not really about that its more about the community shrinking grim said it before he left the front page has slowed alot so much he believed the community was dieing and even you were new compared to him so take that for what its worth. I really like this community and while I appreciate your laissez faire approach to community may have served you well in the past I prefer a more active approach not that I'm gonna go hand out fliers in the street lol. I think making posts on other forums and sites showing off some neat fluffy art and linking back to the booru could help attract new artist and writers and that cant be a bad thing. Idk grim had such a large catalog of work and seeing him quit just makes me uneasy and Id rather not see something as you pointed out I only just came to die just when I found it. April 14, 2019; 22:17 - Reply MostlyHereToLurk: @Researcher_7201: Wait, Gr1m quit? Damn, even when I'm not particularly involved with this place anymore, that still makes me a little sad. April 14, 2019; 22:17 - Reply Skoon: Honestly I agree with both Soulvei and Researcher on this. A little of column A, a little of column B. I do believe we should be taking the community here a little more seriously, I always have. There's long been far more fighting and trolling than support and mutual respect. But what do I know, I'm a furry/pony fag. I also agree that there is content and conduct that crosses the line. Unfortunately, that line doesn't seem to be very straight forward these days. Perhaps a retooling is in order? Rule more easily understood, therefor easily followed. I know that general chaos has been the crown jewel of fluffybooru for a long time, but it may be time to mature a bit. A healthy guideline equals a healthy something something friendship is magic, nigga. April 14, 2019; 22:20 - Reply Soulvei: @Researcher_7201: I'm not "new" compared to Gr1m1. You're on my last nerve with this know-it-all bullshit. April 14, 2019; 22:36 - Reply GhostFluff: @Researcher_7201: It's all been done. Your not saying or doing anything new. Believe it or not, Fluffies aren't every ones cup of tea. Times have changed, censorship has taken a grip of the world wide web. 4chan can now shape the major news networks over fear of trolls and fascism, all while practicing those very things. The MPL Fandom has slowed down. and booru artists have grown out of this little box and started moving on to greener pastures. article 13... You are just one in a long cycle that has been going on for years now. You'r not the savior of the booru just as the dozens before you weren't. They all would spam the chans, share links and it will bring in one or two new people but then they trickle out just the same. There is a difference now though. some things have changed that never had before. The booru has changed hands, and old guard has abandon this place. Things are starting to shift. April 14, 2019; 22:45 - Reply Soulvei: @Skoon: But you're *our* fag and that's what matters most <3 April 14, 2019; 22:57 - Reply MostlyHereToLurk: Y'know, if the time for the Booru's death is coming, ya gotta admit, this place has had a pretty good run. Lasted a lot longer than I'd imagine, and it generated some genuinely great pieces of art (which happened to have been about mercilessly tormenting semi-sapient, child-like horse/pig creatures) April 14, 2019; 22:58 - Reply MostlyHereToLurk: "If" being one of the key-words. April 14, 2019; 23:13 - Reply Skoon: @Soulvei: This is one of my favorite internet homes. I never could truly leave. Even after a certain grouchy Santa made my life hell. haha April 14, 2019; 23:56 - Reply Fluffiest_Donut: I'm actually pretty concerned about that fluffy game they were going to be making. I hope they finish it. April 15, 2019; 02:14 - Reply Disintegral: @Researcher_7201: Soulvei's been here well before gr1m. His first post was three years ago, but her first account (crystal_leviathan) is at least a year older than that. April 15, 2019; 06:25 - Reply FluffyFluff: I believe we all learned something new from this; dont be bitches to artists on this website. that's how we lose them. April 15, 2019; 09:37 - Reply sexygoatgod: Wait so....what happened exactly? I'm seeing comments on a "human fluffy" and a human being a necrophiliac. I mean we've seen satyrs and anthros before and there's plenty of fluffy fucking and fluffy on dead fluffy and fluffy on babbeh action. Did he just leave because of the backlash or did he post stuff that's against the rules or...? Why's everyone calling him a pedo?? Last I checked he was just posting little lime comics I completely missed out on the shit show lmfao April 15, 2019; 10:00 - Reply MostlyHereToLurk: @sexygoatgod: I too completely missed out on it. Apparently it concerned that one user whose username is just a string of numbers, hence why he's gone. April 15, 2019; 10:01 - Reply MostlyHereToLurk: Oh right... it says so right there in the post. I should definitely be asleep right now April 15, 2019; 12:19 - Reply lilttemissy: I think many artists will sympathize when I say if you can't take criticism and "trolls" from the Internet about our art then maybe you shouldn't Be posting stuff in the first place. Only the strong survive and clearly 940 wasn't strong at all if he indeed "raged quit" over "trolls". No one can draw or create like You, so giving power to randos speaks volumes. You're at the mercy of anons, and they can be Brutal but you can survive because at the end of the day, it's just words. Right? April 15, 2019; 13:07 - Reply Soulvei: @Skoon: Yeah, Santanon was kind of a jerk lol But goddamn did he contribute a lot of art. April 15, 2019; 13:13 - Reply Soulvei: Nearly all of you are missing the point. He broke rules plain and simple. The evidence of his escapades is gone because we removed it because it BROKE THE RULES. Littlemissy is right. If you can't take some trolling then you shouldn't be posting. The guy posting the Alice stuff is getting trolled pretty hard and he's still here and posting. This place doesn't exactly bring the most saintly people together. April 15, 2019; 14:05 - Reply sexygoatgod: The rules are so lax too, like you gotta really go out of your way to break them, lmfao. He could have at least, like, not turned anon on if he wasn't liking being roasted. Like you have to deliberately subject yourself to that. April 15, 2019; 14:18 - Reply Carolina_Reaper: Okay okay okay, can someone please tell me why 940etc was a pedo again? I saw the pic about Lime's owner being an implied necrophile but not the "naked child" pic everyone is bashing him over. Can someone please elaborate for those of us who missed that bit? Also, I can understand some of the rage that was being leveled against 940etc now. But still, he was getting trolled hard before any of the freaky fetish stuff went down. A couple of folk were giving him the business over the Lime comics he was posting just because they reused the same assets. Same with the Aussie posting the Alice comics; he's getting harshed just for having a style similar to another artist. Basically all I'm saying is that we've lost some good artists as of late. Please don't chase any new blood away without just cause. April 15, 2019; 14:39 - Reply Fluffus: @Soulvei: I didn’t know you were a mod. That’s great April 15, 2019; 14:50 - Reply Skoon: @Soulvei: I think people are more on edge about 940 because some truly beloved talent recently left. Panic mode and all. April 15, 2019; 17:06 - Reply Researcher_7201: @Carolina_Reaper: This is pretty much the point I was driving towards. Some people seem way to happy about people quitting and others seem happy to drive off anyone new. Hopefully people can learn to just appreciate the art without having to be so but hurt about it. But given what I've seen recently I'm starting to think some people may just be intrested in trying to run people off. April 15, 2019; 17:08 - Reply Researcher_7201: Anyway I think this conversation has gone as far as its going to go so to avoid any more circling I think its time to lock it up and move on! April 15, 2019; 17:41 - Reply Soulvei: @Fluffus: I wanted to help in any way I could. Thanks, mate :) April 15, 2019; 17:42 - Reply Soulvei: @Researcher_7201: I agree with your final point. Nothing more to be said. Thread locked.
