Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen the posts on this board ?

 

Apparently the owner Cookie has not signed in in quite some time and he has complete control of this board.

 

The staff has no idea whats going on.

 

Thoughts ????

Yes, it is set up differently from here as that is a site where there are a lot of pay areas. However, since it is a site used as income for the owner, it will not likely go down. (***Please note that on rereading a post on that site I see a post indicating that NO MONEY was made from it! So please disregard the previous commment!`)

 

This happens often there. They just get into times when they have to take care of maintenance issues and such. They will I am sure be back soon. If the owner contacts us with any information we will let you know.

 

These sites do have to have constant maintenance, so if he has been sick for awhile or something similar, it could be that there was an issue arising from that. But likely automatic emails are already telling him of a problem on the site and he is no doubt already on site working on the necessary repairs to it.

I didn't have time to check if the forums were working, but I see that the site is back on. So all is ok with them again.

Good riddance in my opinion.

 

The pay side is just the same women, in the same positions, in the same coats, doing the same thing every month. The rest is a forum that is policed by people who think they are above you in every way.

 

I hated that site ever since Dragon wasn't apart of it with Cookie any longer.

All is not all right White Fox.

 

Obviously you didn't even take the time to read the post referenced.

No, sorry, I was extremely busy earlier today and have been "Down" for months due to a very difficult operation on the pancreas. So my time here is very limited.

 

However, I just had a look at the site. I notice someone mentioning that they had seen Cookie on the site recently, so he has likely just decided that he needs to take some real time away for awhile. I don't blame him as these sites can get very demanding.

 

We here certainly do wish him all the best and I am sure that all members here will join in on that.

 

The site has been down many times before for short times as it was this time. They don't know their future. None of us do. We all just go from day to day. But hopefully the FFG has many more happy times to come! As everyone knows our sites are very different. Some see us as in competition but that is simply not the case, as our visitors are pretty much all different. And we all wish them well!

I'm sorry but I don't know much about what goes on at the other website. I visit, occasionally, but my time is limited and I have responsibilities, otherwise.

 

It is people and personalities that make a website, regardless of the theme or subject. If people don't get along, the website won't last very long.

 

I can say, from personal experience, that many people don't realize that until it's too late. All we can do is cross our fingers and hope for the best.

Sorry but your link isn't working and I can't figure out how to fix it, or else I would fix it for you.

Just an update. I did get time to really read some messages over there tonight. I think if we look at the situation carefully we will see the following.

 

1. Cookie has been Out of Service there for approximately 5 weeks. That happens. One of our staff had a sudden emergency stay in the hospital just recently and was not available for almost 4 weeks and could barely get even one message to us to tell us that he was ok. Five weeks is NOT a long time.

 

2. Someone mentioned that they saw Cookie`s name on the visitor`s area of the web site.

 

So folks, there is a lot of scared talk over there at the moment. Yes, the mods need to be concerned so that they can do updates on the forums there and the photo areas, etc. BUT! Please don`t put the cart before the horse. I think that they need to just wait this out for awhile and likely they will see Cookie back and in great shape again. Maybe he has been busy. Maybe had a medical problem. But I think it is far too early to think about their Rebuilding the site on another similar URL. I am sure that Cookie will have a backup person for the site who has emergency keys if something should go wrong.

 

***So, in short. Don`t panic folks. I am sure that Cookie will be back soon.

 

***In the mean time feel free to post here about the site or other issues. In the mean time let s not post any negative comments about their site now while they are going through this problem. Let us just keep things positive as I am sure we should until Cookie returns again soon.

I like the style of this forum better... not to mention it seems to have people who know more words than fur.

 

Guess I better go through their gallery before it gets shut down.

Not saying you're wrong but there's apparently evidence that he's selling his furs off through ebay. I think that more than anything has raised eyebrows.

Yes, from what I have been told there are other things showing up lately too, but I think it is probably premature to say that he is no longer with us. People can become depressed these days or even just become very tired of a way of life, but that often is only a temporary condition being able to be cured within a few months. Will he be back? Who knows. BUT! I truly believe that there is still at least a good chance of that.

There is a good saying in life "it's not what you wish for it's what you work for" and we have had this discussion before, how many people out there who are running round like a chicken without a head have ever contributed to Cookies site in any way?

 

I went on a couple of smoking fetish sites last week and lots of members are polite enough to show there gratitude if only with a "thanks" but it's still happening here, what are you all going to do when FFG is gone? I think this will be the place that everyone will migrate to but are you going to support it or keep hiding and don't give a shit what people spend time doing for you?

All,

 

Still no more news on Cookie's whereabouts or wellbeing I see, and clearly the mods there are as in the dark as the members and guests. We wish him well whatever the situation and circumstances, but I concur with others that the signs for a return aren't good - and I can't help feeling that, even if there are contingencies in place for its future, then some of the statements by those mods may not be helping their situation.

 

It might be the most well known fur forum around currently but of course is not the only one, nor are his the only fur sites around. There have been fur fashion and fetish websites - free and pay ones, forums, chatrooms and mailing lists since the mid 1990s long before FFG and there will continue to be ones around long after all the sites that currently exist close down. Enjoy things while they are there but keep looking for new places to explore and develop your passions too!

 

Regards,

Mr Mockle

I really think if The Fur Den is to take over and I'm sure it WILL, it needs to get a bit more 18+

Needs to expand out a little, but again its volunteer work.. You have to police the hell out of certain things, and thats where I think FFG went wrong. Their mods police EVERYTHING, and if you don't agree you get banned. Just like tonight... A mod closed a thread because he said be careful of a video someone posted for fetishmistress, and said how is it different than what fursluts did. Not even a hour later - gone, and locked.

 

While I appreciate moderation, and I agree it needs to be done - stepping too far out to enforce stupid rules, and silly policies. Banning people for having an opinion is yet another reason that site will fail. I REGRET being a sponsor member for them, and wish I put the money to this site instead. Not one time has a mod here been like that, and I hope they never will.

While I at least am not opposed to the "more 18+" suggestion, we need to be a bit careful. Our host's terms of service state that we could be shut down if they receive any complaints about our content. Thus our Fur Freaks forum is limited to members in good standing who have requested access. That may seem like overkill, but at least we have managed to stay online for the past 8 years.

I don't know whats happening over there, but I believe good things happen to good people.

 

I am a member of FFG as well as here, but I can honestly say that there is more of a community feel here in the Den. I have never met any one from here in the real world, and honestly don't wish to, but I do always feel welcome here. I also concur with a previous post that says the quality of post here is more intellectual, hence why I visit here more. When I do visit the FFG it is for a fetish video fix, but that's it. I enjoy discussions on here as much or more than watching some dumb porn star who has no interest in furs apart from the fact she is paid to wear it.

 

Whatever is going on over there, I hope that everyone is OK and could never wish ill health on any one.

A fair and very important point about the terms imposed by the server host provider. It can be difficult to negotiate the right approach and level of content at the best of times, and some hosts are known to change their rules at any given moment without notice, with the risk that an entire site or parts of it can be deleted in an instant. However there may be some scope for expansion in some way - or even for the chance to re-read the hosting company's rules in case some clauses have changed or clarification can be sought regarding particular content of levels of discussion, linking or hosting.

 

Regards,

Mr Mockle

Agreed. You probably would've liked what I posted earlier then. I'm sure it was removed, and I was banned... but who cares.
