I think I actually covered most of this in my initial, but I tend to ramble and meander about more often than not with stuff like that, so I'll structure it a little better to clear it up a bit more- Mind Telling us how you happened upon our friendly community?
Well, to be honest on this one. Google. the last forums i came from, the RP section has started to become a sad excuse of what it used to be, haven't been able to keep the advanced players around long enough to keep a story running for more than a couple weeks before players start dropping like flies just to whatever situation is happening in the background for them, and the ones that survive (and go on for stupidly long without actually going anywhere) are the single liners that wouldn't even be suiting for a Skype styled RP, so yeah, kinda looking for something new in that area- How long have you been a furry / known about the fandom?
This ones kinda a funny one, I've had an interest in the fandom for probably around fifteen years at this point, but I can't say I've really been a part of it, for more than twelve, maybe thirteenish years, I actually found out that the fandom existed because of 'that one episode of CSI', I didn't know there was an actual fandom before I happened to catch that episode, but I've always had a love of anthro styled characters (Calvin and Hobbes was, and still is, one of my favorite comic series to date), so it just kinda made sense when I found out there was more to it than what that episode of CSI showed- Do you have a fursona? If so, what is it?
The simple answer to this one, is yes, my sona's a Tigerwolf of the Deep Scifi variety, built around the love I have for dark and gritty future stuff, the more indepth answer to all that's involved with him would probably take up most of this page to explain. Simply put, 11'6" Tiger based genetics, with a few wolfish accents strewn about (namely the slightly more pointed ears, a little more define muzzle, 'frayed' tail tip, and black and white patterning rather than orange white and black), with a few metallic bits here an there that usually wears mechanics casual clothing (Jeans, tshirt, and button up, cabelas styled shirt left open and the sleeves rolled up) with a pair of glasses set across his nose. - What interests you about the anthro fandom?
I think I 'kinda' answered this one with the how I got into the fandom, but to go a little more in depth with it, I've always loved the idea of anthro characters in stories and videogames, the designs reflect more than just where they came from, they can reflect emotion and personality visually so much better than simply using human characters. in all honesty, it's really just a preference, I've seen it done just as well with humans, but I find furs to be more visually interesting on top of everything else that goes along with it
As for the IRC, I actually already found my way in there the day I asked to join, I've been on the FurNet IRC's for a good while already, so it just took a few tweaks to have limechat able to link into the furtopia IRC as well
I also noticed the bit about the 'family friendly' thing, not entirely sure how I feel about that one...it'll certainly make it hard for me to find the kind of RP's I was hoping to see around here if they have to be dumbed down Disney Channel style, I like a bit of dark, and crude humor, struggles and triumph, even the concepts of throwing a group into a situation and forcing them to react is utterly facinating to me, seeing what they do, hold up their morals in a tough situation, or do what's necessary to survive instead? I love seeing, and playing out scenearios like that
