Talk:Collar Factory

I believe it should be mentioned here because the website does have a section on their forum for furries. Seeing as collars are basically the main clothing item for furs, I think the article is appropriate. ISD 18:47, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

They obviously view furry as one of their target audiences. They've joined our   li_furs and posted an ad there and at least one of the local furries bought stuff from them and posted a positive review on her own LJ. It's not a furry business, but it's a furry-friendly business and it may be good of us to reciprocate and promote them. On the other hand.. are we that desperate as to write a wikifur article about every business that doesn't reject us? --Cubbi 21:22, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

I don't see it as being desperate. I see it as creating an article for something that furries would be interested in, and an organisation who tries to market furries explicity. ISD 06:51, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
If they're here, then it should probably be mentioned that they got told off at   openpaws for their persistent "promotion" (I only hesitate to call it advertising because it didn't cost them anything). Their posts had nothing particularly to do with the group, and were made every three weeks, and cross-posted to many groups without modification. I tend to agree that WikiFur should be for companies which are specifically furry or at least distribute something that is - and collars aren't. If they were someone who regularly showed up at furry cons I might feel differently, but we seem to be just a market segment for them. Wikipedia deleted this article on notability grounds; I'd tend towards getting rid of it for irrelevance to our topic. --GreenReaper(talk) 07:11, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
I see li_furs was not entirely pleased with the post either. --GreenReaper(talk) 07:15, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
I've added the controversy caused by Collar Factory to the article. ISD 10:45, 15 September 2007 (UTC)


I'm restoring (undeleting) the article, and will re-edit to show what I think is sufficient furry relevance to have an article about the company here. There can absolutely be further discussion if other editors see the need. -- Sine 03:31, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
