Well Furtopia and Dragoncity hit a site mile marker yesterday.  Both the forums and web hosting hit over 200+ members.  This does not include several Furtopia hosted sites (like www.furrybrasil.com.br) that host sites withen themselves or the many impresive and private forums found throughout members sites.

When we started Furtopia and Dragoncity we decided to take our resources and build a friendly helping community that supports each other.  We must be doing something right. '<img'>

Congratulations to Furtopia/Dragoncity and all that started them and keep them running for all the furs here.

You are doing something right my friends. This community is so helpful and caring for everyone in it. It also accepts new and different people easily. As the community grows and diversity spreads, we learn more of ourselves and our world.

I am glad to have found you all. The acceptance that has been shown to me here has lead me to be more open about myself. It has given me t he courage to approach other furs that I have suprisingly found in my area.
Life? Ha, the greatest joke. Tis surely proof that God has a sense of humor, all be it a sadistic one.

This community has been very welcome to me, and I plan to make it my den for a long time to come.  I tell many others about this place and tell them this is where the cream of the crop of furry artists, writers, and musicians come together.

See you at AC to all Furtopians attending.

Congrats on getting so many hosted sites on furtopia.org, WS. That's a lot to keep up with, I'm sure. '<img'>
 
I'm very pleased to see that the bulletin board's population has been growing quickly yet steadily lately, with most of the newcomers actually jumping in and participating rather than continuing to lurk. We've had very few issues to have to police here too, which I thank our users for. It's nice to have a courteous, friendly bunch here. It makes the administration of this board a great pleasure.

I just checked the members list, and (at the time of this post) there were 201 members. And one of those say it's awaiting authorisation.

So, if you don't count that one, I could leave then come back and you could celebrate hitting 200 again. Yah!

Okay maybe not.

Yeah, it happens every once in a while that someone registers a name and doesn't complete the registration process for whatever reason. The board tells you it's sent an e-mail to verify your account with, but the occasional user doesn't figure it out somehow or another. Or sometimes they just take a few days before they finally check their e-mail and verify their account. It's a number of things, really...

Going strong then? I like it. I just hope you arent going to charge hehe...too many might (Regretably) lead to the need to charge. (Not including message board so much as web space)

*Pats the staff on the back* You have all done such a wonderful job here. I would love to help out if you would premit it. Asside from my rantings I mean. Please dont be afraid to ask.

Furtopia is a ".org" so we do not charge.  If fact we don't even advertise "Please Donate".  The basis it's all held together by fursons donating/working what they can to this home which allows the members to in turn freely share art and ideas. This in turn enriches the whole community.  There are artists here that sell prints, commissions, etc and that is good.  But there is no site here that says "pay up or go away*.  Each one here is sharing something with the community.

The net bills can be steep no doubt.  But I think the rewards that so many benefit make it a worth while project to keep going and improving for a very long time to come.

There was an Ebay auction of that domain name a few months ago and Nexxus, of FurNation, won the auction and currently owns it. ':p'

It depends on who all gets involved, yeah.
For the number of members on the board, we've got a decent number of users that actually get involved and post on a regular basis. That's good and healthy. '<img'>
