Arkafur's logo
Arkafur is a furry group, based out of North Little Rock, Arkansas, USA. Their goal is to provide an environment of acceptance and fun for all those involved, and accepting all furres no mater their gender, sexual orientation, fursona, or age. They were created on Aug 16, 2010 with just 2 members; a furre couple who couldn't find a group locally that met their needs.

Arkafur's founding members were Cassandra de Lancret and TheShrink.

[edit] Joining Arkafur

Arkafur's rules for joining currently stand as follows

  1. All members must be 13 years or older to join
  2. All members 13-15 must have a parent or guardian with them to attend meets
  3. All members 16 and 17 must have a consent form signed by their parent or guardian to attend
  4. Members 18 and older are free to attend the meets
  5. All Members must meet with at least one of the founding members prior to attending meets. If a member is under 18, they must have their parent or guardian with them.

[edit] Interview Process

The interview process to attend Arkafur's meets is done in order to protect it's members from potential problem members, however all members are more than welcome to join the yahoo group and the forums. This interview will be done in a public place, like a coffee shop or other similar setting. During the interview, the founding member(s) will make sure that the applicant understands the rules and answers any questions that the applicant has.

At this time, applicants under the age of 18 may also turn in their consent forms. Only one form needs to be filled in, per applicant. Unlike permission slips for school, these are not limited to just one meet. They will be kept on file by the founding members for reference.

At the end of the interview, the founding member(s) will inform the applicant if the are/n't accepted. Because of the interview process, only members are allowed to attend meets.

[edit] Acceptance

If an applicant is found to be accepted, they will be added to the group of individuals who are given the address of the meets. If a member who has been accepted gives said address to or brings with them a non-member or a member who has not been accepted, they will get their first warning.

[edit] Rejection

If a member has been approved to attend meets and they are found to disrupt the meets frequently(3 or more meets), they will be asked to no longer return to the meets. This will be on a warning system manner. A couple examples are as follows (but not limited to) Starting/participating in a loud fight/disagreement or bringing a non-member to the meets.

[edit] Warning System

All members must follow the posted Rules of Conduct.

Arkafur works on a 3-strikes warning system. These warnings, if no disruption has occurred in 6 months, will be taken off, one warning per six months. After three warnings, the user will be asked to not attend meets for a period, to be determined by the founding members at the time of the third warning, depending upon the disruption that caused said warnings.

[edit] Consent Form

The consent form, required by Arkafur for all members under 18, was devised as a way to protect themselves, and yet still allow members under the age of 18 to attend the group meets. This form, modeled after the Mephit Fur Meet consent form is required for all members aged 16 and 17. All members under the age of 16, but over 13 must attend with a parent or guardian. The group is not accepting members under the age of 13, due to the fact that most of their members will be adults, and in order to keep an environment where everyone can enjoy themselves. The only exception to this rule is if a member has a small (less than three) child, of whom they bring with them. Said member is responsible for making sure said child is taken care of and does not disrupt the meet.
