first off I like the idea of what the furry fandom but there is a certain question I want to ask.

do anyone especially the newer users here have their furry character as a non-humanoid anthromorphic type(see preston blair's creation for an example)? I would recommend it for those who want to join this community or fandom. Especially if they want to get away from all the mainstream part of the fandom like yiffing for an example.

I have a hard time looking for those type of users out of sheer curiosity. I checked out Luskwood on SecondLife and I can only find one and the rest of them are just humanoid(with the head, hands, feet, and addition of the tail for being the difference).

oh well this is only just my imagination. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Duper block (talkcontribs) .

I think the term you might be looking for is non-anthro. There are some who have characters that are physically non-human in most or all respects, yet retain some form of elevated mental capacity normally associated with humans. You see them a lot on MUCKs and the like. People might use them less as their avatars because it can be hard to relate to them, but I don't know that for sure. --GreenReaper(talk) 02:16, 18 March 2008 (UTC)
Another possibility is the therian community, which can sometimes be more based on non-morphic animals than anthropomorphic ones. As GreenReaper mentioned, there are a number of Category:Animal multiplayer worlds that involve quadrupedal animal roleplays (for a biased example, I'm the headwizard of a North American wildlife MUCK called Meadows MUCK ^^). Category:Nonmorphic characters may be of interest as well. Spaz Kitty 02:48, 18 March 2008 (UTC)
another question, possibly a dumb one. what do you call a furry thats no human related but animal like similar characteristics but still stands on 2 feet? (as in not a furry that is a completely realistic animal) see characters like Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Redwall. -duper block
p.s. I don't know how send a reply the correct way on these forums, I spent a half an hour trying to find it.
I'm not sure we'd call them anything in particular - "furry" spans a wide range, as does "anthropomorphic". The feet might be digitigrade as opposed to plantigrade, though.

Also, you have to remember that fursonas don't even need to be real animals, one famous example is 2, The Ranting Gryphon Minotaurs like me arn't totally unherd of either. Dragons, unicorns etc. also exsist. While we are a great deal more rare, we're still out there. It's a fandom and many accept this as a fantasy, it dosn't need to be 100% accurite.

For much more of an understanding, I think he wants to know if theres users mostly new or not who has a furry charachter who are morphic types, not humanoid.

Because humanoid and anthro are the same thing.

According you guys and this:

Each two samples come up with either "morphic" or "humanoid" in the beginning description. Coal gate 01:32, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
