Yerf is a long-running site with a long history and a significant impact on the furry fandom. I was very glad to see that it was back up, and as it happened I was just looking for an article to feature . . . and lo and behold, Yerf was available! --GreenReaper(talk) 04:30, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Doug Winger[edit]

Doug is a member of the fandom whose art is widely known for its . . . distinctive characteristics. But, more to the point, the article about him was well-linked and had several interesting facts in and of itself, as well as a picture. I wouldn't normally feature articles this short, but it seemed to have everything else on the list, so I chose it. --GreenReaper(talk) 03:32, 25 January 2006 (UTC)


A rather nice article. Could perhaps do with more furry-specific stuff, and I am sure there are some pictures around for which the copyright has expired that could be put to good use. --GreenReaper(talk) 21:47, 25 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Added a picture, but I confess I'm a little vague as to what might constitute "furry-specific" in this context. Mowgli lives with lots of talking furry animals, but doesn't actually have fur of his own, though I'm sure he wishes he did. Lee M 14:16, 5 Jan 2006 (UTC)
I guess I was thinking more "in what way is this relevant to the furry fandom?" - who or what in particular has been inspired by, based on, or is related to Mowlgi, if anything? Why is it important? For example The Lion King has had a lot of fan-related activity, like The Lion King Fan-Art Archive and The Lion King MUCK - if there was a MowlgiMUCK I would expect to see it mentioned, for example. Not that I imagine there is such a thing, but you never know . . . *grins* --GreenReaper(talk) 02:48, 8 Jan 2006 (UTC)

Vixen Vending Machine[edit]

This was a great story, which is a big part of what WikiFur is all about. After all, a shared culture starts with shared stories, little in-jokes that only those who know will get. West Corner Of the Park is all about them (which is probably why some don't consider it funny - you had to be there :-). Hopefully more people know a little piece of FurryMUCK history, now. --GreenReaper(talk) 03:49, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
