Looks like their website is at Someone also may want to point out to them that their event sorta overlaps with Anthrocon. o.O --Douglas Muth 14:55, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Well, to be fair, while Anthrocon gets attendees from Australia it's a fair bet that it's a minority of the Australian fandom who attends. I don't see that that overlap should automatically be a concern, though it's true that it might cost them a few attendees. ----DuncanDaHusky(talk) 15:30, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Suggesting that we now use separate pages for RivFur. Adopt a similar style of page layout as used by Further Confusion and AC with each year of the RivFur event split up onto its own page with appropriate details on the event on each. This will permit us to move the detailed event information, such as detailed history such as location, merchandise, event summery, and organization etc. This format will keep the main RivFur Page cleaner, and allow us to better comply with WikiFur Standards while maintaining a more complete summery of the event in further detail each year. Even if this is not adopted now, it will need to be addressed soon as the event history continues to grow we will require more categories then I'd think would be appropriate to summarise in detail the whole event each year. ----Jet(talk) 19:27, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Seems reasonable, if you can find enough content to fill them. I'm more concerned with what happened to Rzeka - abducted by wallabies? Run over by a kangaroo? Inquiring minds want to know! --GreenReaper(talk) 03:31, 23 September 2012 (EDT)
A version of Rzeka was never designed or used in 2012 as a shirt design was not published or produced in that year. RivFur 2013 sees in the introduction of a new mascot 'team' design that is more targeted at promoting the new 'feel' the convention is pushing for. These changes in design include key concepts such as friendship, humour and community growth. There was a great deal of feedback both for and against changing the RivFur mascot(s) to something more modern and diverse. Statistically speaking, there was a more support from the local community for changing the mascot to something new and more reliable such as a 'group' idea not just one character. This mascot change also allowed RivFur to accept a greater number of ideas and submissions from local artists as to what they would like to see used. There is nothing to say that Rzeka wont be back later on, so its going to be a more of a 'wait and see'. ----Jet(talk) 19:59, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Im wondering why myself (Foxy_Malone) and Nikita keep getting edited out as founders? while the initial idea was Drakes, the three of us sat down and worked out the program and organizing. it was in fact Nikita who thought of the name RivFur while we were throwing around name ideas.

Updated the page to reflect minor staff changes. In addition, my sincerest apologies to Foxy_Malone and Nikita, I was misinformed regarding the group founders, it wont happen again. ----Jet(talk) 04:29, 04 January 2013 (GMT)
