price list?[edit]

In Feb 2007, edited with edit summary “removed dead link” removing link to price list at YiffyToys. I checked the URL and it is still there. Should the article link to the price list? --EarthFurst 18:02, 11 August 2007 (UTC)


Last week (Aug 2007), did an edit which included changing the “Ran from/to” field from “? - present” to “”. Should the article list the host of YiffyToys? --EarthFurst 18:02, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

It is a very fur-friendly hoster, why should it not be included? --Suran 05:41, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

citation needed?[edit]

What is the intention of this "citation needed" with the pornfolios? It is clearly no dispute of a fact because the link below shown it to be true beyond all doubt and the fact that there are products that can only be offered at conventions it worth a sentence. --Suran 05:41, 26 October 2007 (UTC)


Thanks GreenReaper for pointing out the applicable rules here. I was not sure about the ® so I added it to be on the safe side.

Listing products[edit]

Is it just me, or does it seem like a couple of the recent edits have gone a little over the line from being and encyclopedic article about the website into reading more like an advertisement for the site and its products? --mwalimu 18:07, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

That was my thought on seeing this edit last night. There is some good information here but it needs to be formed into paragraphs describing the general nature of the products. The excess detail of product lines (which is liable to change on a regular basis) can be removed. I don't see how wording like "products that are found to have inferior quality are not offered or removed from the portfolio at once" has a place here, either - it's an assertion of intent without even a reference to specific events. A good article deals with facts, not intents. --GreenReaper(talk) 18:22, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Yea, looking at it again I got carried away. Given the recent additions I wanted it a bit more structured then these long, enumerating sentences and overdid it. I cut down on the list. As for the statements with the phantalates. Of cause a principle is always an intent but is is an important one as it explains why we have removed a number of products (I have quite some stuff here that I wouldn't feel comfortable selling.) in the past and e.g. never offered the conventional zeta-toys at all even as we feature all the other players. Can you find a better wording for that paragraph? --Suran 20:14, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Well, I think you have mentioned a way to proceed - we can say you never offered gel-based products from Zeta Creations because you believed them to be unsafe, which is an actual demonstration of that principle. If you have made a post about this in the past, it would make a good reference. --GreenReaper(talk) 21:01, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Category:English language[edit]

Why remove the Category:English language while German and French stay present? That something is avaliable in english is not a matter of course. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Suran (talkcontribs) .

Well, here on the English-language WikiFur, it is - and if it is not, that is specifically noted. It is worth noting that a non-English resource is also available in English; indeed, the article does so, and that statement was not removed. However, it doesn't make sense to make a category that would need to be applied to 98% of articles about websites and other resources - it is not useful. The language categories were created to help those who want to follow resources in particular (non-English) languages. (I imagine your library has a section for books in foreign languages as well.) --GreenReaper(talk) 00:27, 4 September 2012 (EDT)
You do realise that english is a foreign language to 98% of the people? --Suran 01:11, 4 September 2012 (EDT)
Yes, but that is irrelevant. This isn't a matter of language equality - in fact, the difference exists because languages are not in equal use in furry fandom. It's "is this category useful to our readers?" and "Is it reasonable for WikiFur's editors to maintain this category?" I don't think either is true here, at least for websites (the English Wikipedia made a similar decision). In general, a category which is overly broad is useless. The categories for non-English-language resources work because there are relatively few members of the category, and so people might want to use the category system to find them (e.g. French, German). This is not likely to be the case for English-language resources. --GreenReaper(talk) 01:55, 4 September 2012 (EDT)
