Just a note... intercepted a bit of info from an anti-furry group who are apparently planning a massive defacement of wikifur starting Friday 25th! They might just be boasting, but best be prepared anyway. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) .
- Some details, such as the name of the group, URLs of their forums, chatlogs, etc. would be helpful. --Douglas Muth 13:08, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
- At this point, we don't have much in the way of evidence that this is really going to be an issue for us. And it's not like we haven't dealt with vandalism before. --Douglas Muth 15:59, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
Wow, it sure was easy to get the 4chan kiddies riled up. Their level of obsession over WikiFur is impressive. --Douglas Muth 19:38, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

- Me again... sorry about being so vague in my first post, but in my distractions elsewhere I ommited to post the link! Im just giving you an update... it seems the responsible party was from the /b/ section of the 4chan imageboard - the '/b/tards' - and that Wikifur was not their only target. After a few wiki and forum attacks, they turned on each other and provoked the wrath of the 4chan operators. A series of bans, both perminant and temporary, followed - and then the crashing of the 4chan server. Seems vandels are their own worst enemy. It will take them some time to make repairs and reform - the show of defiance is already underway, http://orz.4chan.org/n/res/33360.html - but I expect they will return some day. Fortunatly, their lack of competance is rivaled only by their lack of attention span. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs) .
