Does this mean you submitted Furtopia Forums and/or the individual artists forums?

Sounds like a good deal.

It's just the board overall. I figured I'd try it out. The mascot/logo for Forum-Search is a fox, at least. ':p'

Thanks Benjamin. I went and checked it out. (giggles) Yes I see the fox head. That is cute.

Nothing wrong with trying out new stuff to bring new visitors!

It looks like a pretty new place. That is ok. Everything has to start some where, right?  '<img'>

hmm... how will we know when someone has 'stumbled' across us with this search engine? Or is that possible?

You'd know if someone was hitting this board from that site if WS is running any stats on the CGI server. Also, I think they have a counter in their site that counts how many times any specific link has been followed.

Ah, ok. WS says we do keep logs.

I will have to check their site out more often then, just out of curiosity. I just looked closer at their page with Furtopia on it and I see the stats bar at the bottom. Thanks.

Their "Rate It" seems to have a 404 error though.

Hmm. The rate it thing worked fine for me. You need to be a member at the site in order to actually use that feature though.

I noticed that when I clicked on the "Review It".

What would the "Rating" be? I saw another link that had two hits and a rating of 10.

You rate the site on a scale of 1 to 10, and that gets averaged out as more and more people give it a rating. It looks like a very similar system to the links systems that a few furry sites use, like Pathwayz.org.
