Furoticon Reddit is active again!

Post by Astrid Varelse » Wed Jun 24, 2015 4:24 pm

Check out /r/furoticon on Image

It would be awesome to see more of the Furoticon community participate in discussions! -- It might even give me -50 :sp: ;)

Although it's not officially run by Tail Kiss Studio, it'll be a great one-stop-shop for everything Furoticon related! I know there are many people who read Furoticons' official website and forums to keep up with the game, and I think Reddit will be a great way to socialize in the community. So whether you've found something cool on the forums, or your just curious about a bit of rule text, come over to the subreddit and talk about it!

I don't want to slam you when you're trying to help, but I'm not sure there's a need for a forum on Reddit when we already have this one. It would be nice if we could get some people from other subreddits interested in playing, though. Maybe you should contact the mods on /r/furry and see if they'll add this to their "related subreddits" list (/r/furry itself doesn't want explicitly sexual material posted, and seems to be mostly younger furs, but it does link to /r/yiff. I'm not really sure what the thinking is there....) There's also /r/cardgames, which seems to be the least dead card-game-related sub that I could find, but they don't seem to have a policy about whether sexual material is allowed.

That's alright, regardless I see no reason why the forum and the reddit cannot co-exist. :)

Awesome advice, I'll keep an eye out for potential subreddits! (Already messaged /r/yiff)

I'd say the reason they can't really co-exist is because it fragments an already small community. I don't really mind either way, but I do agree with Polka on this one. It's already bad enough that people have to look at the main page, the forums, and offbeatr to be fully caught up on everything Furoticon. Still, Bozo ran that reddit for a while and it didn't really get much interest, so I don't see it really making a comeback. You're welcome to try though! ^^

Ironically, I'm pretty sure that was the problem Reddit was originally intended to solve (back when it first launched and didn't have comments or self posts.) You could just subscribe to whatever you wanted updates on, and check your front page to see anything relevant that was happening, like watching people on FA, but then it became just another thing you have to check on....

Well, people certainly haven't posted on it, but apparently there are 104 subscribers, so someone must at least be using it to watch for updates....

True, it's meant to put everything in one place. The thing is, it's not how it's going to happen. At the very least the forums will have discussions that reddit won't. So even if every single detail and update from Furoticon.com and offbeater were put on reddit, it still would mean a fragmentation of the community. Some will take to the forums to discuss it while others will post on reddit. Honestly, they should be posting everything Furo related on this website and the forums and either stop doing the offbeater updates, or put every offbeatr update on the main site as well. I know they're technically different product, but most people interested in furo are going to be interested in furo online.

Just my thoughts on it anyway.
