History

FurToonia was started in January 1994, after ShasMUCK was handed off by Shasta to Kahz, and the name was then changed to FurToonia. The MUCK was primarily built by Tabyathe, Kahz, and Alexei and Ginger, with help from Sonic, Telkintar and Rrauwl, and MUF coding and technical work by Squirrelly and Ruffin. By late 1994 or so, FurToonia was fairly popular as an alternate gathering spot when FurryMUCK was inaccessible due to problems with its internet connection.

It also became a home for the kinds of roleplay and personalities that FurryMUCK didn't always approve of, given the MUCK's more progressive policies. Some feel that there were a number of internal cultural conflicts during this time, including one that centered around an adult establishment which many felt was against the overall theme of the MUCK. The reality is, conflicts like those were mostly external in the early years, meaning that progressive policy was created and supported by both the owner and the WizCore. As is often the case, the loudest battles are fought loudly by people with no real say in the matter. This stance may or may not have changed in later years.

By late 2005, interest and attendance have trailed off somewhat, however the MUCK was and is the scene of some sprawling, and in many cases interesting and cleverly executed building projects; its database contains at least 200,000 objects.
