Sites that require a user to be logged in?
Two of the external links on the article are to forums which require the user to be logged in before they can view the contents. The first question is, do we want to allow those sorts of links? And the second question is, if yes to #1, should we create some sort of template that can be placed next to each of those links? --Douglas Muth 22:05, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
- oh, sorry about that, I always froget Y* doesn't allow the viewing of some(or is it all) of the threads without a login, but it doesn't charge and doesn't send spam nor anything (at least as far as I know)

is the article itself rated mature or just the site on the external links section?
--Tigro Spottystripes 00:24, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
- Just the external links.
- If the subject of the article itself is considered mature, the MA button is usually placed at the top of the article. --Douglas Muth 01:30, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
Regarding the PhiPaw itself
This has nothing to do with the article itself or how iit's written, just an opinion over the subject. Does this just seem wrong to you? I don't NEED an identifying badge to tell others I'm furry and to let others know I'm furry. What's next? A cloth star on my jacket that says Jude? Because that was the last thing along these lines that was proposed. And we all know how THAT turned out. --Kendricks Redtail 20:15, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
Response to Redtail
That's not what it's supposed to be used for at all...in fact it was spawned from trying to find a way that furries, and only furries, can recognize each other. It's not supposed to be some badge that you put on to lable yourself, it's supposed to be a discreet emblem that shows you are furry to those you want to have that knowlege and, for the most part, keeps it from everyone else. Personally, I'm a closet fur, and I LOVE this idea. I'm gonna get a pendant as soon as I can if it takes off, and I don't really have any fear that anyone I know will know what it means. If you're afraid that people will find out, honestly, I kinda doubt that they would really care enough to actually seek out what it would mean. The only people who would know are those who read the threads about this as well as those who have stumbled into this particular section of wikifur. I'd say proly about 99% of those people are furries themselves, and the remaining one percent will probably forget about it within the hour.
P.S. I have no idea how to post on Wiki 0.o. I proly did it wrong, heh
- Eh, you're prolly right. I'm overreacting anyways. I guess the wording just grated my fur. Accept my apologies.--Kendricks Redtail 23:42, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
- no problem ^^ Actually, you weren't the only one to have those concerns, on the original thread there was a lot of discussion for - and against - the phipaw and the idea of a uniting symbol in general. The general concensus was that it could be compared to a flag of a country, or to the pink triangle or rainbow for the GLBT community.
shoudn't it be called a "culture stub" instead? I mean, it isn't somthing that is restrict to the internet...
- I thought it might be necissary to point out that this symbol isn't meant to be something that you put on to let EVERYONE know you're a furry. It was made to be a discreet way for furries to recognize each other without advertising their furriness to the world (otherwise they could just get shirts that said "GUESS WHAT HYOOMAN? I'M A FURRY!" on them 0.o.) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lonely lupine (talk • contribs) .
- Yea, erm, how do you sign stuff? lol, I don't know what I'm doing 0.o
Since the logo is copyrighted, we are not allowed to buy/sell something with the logo on...?
So if you want a shirt with it on, you'll have to make one yourself... 22.214.171.124 21:02, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
