News:WikiFur referenced in Pittsburgh City Paper
June 29, 2006
Not only is Animal Passions (, ) a surprisingly fair article covering Anthrocon 2006- we actually got a quote in there, referenced from the What is Furry? page! I knew those 15 minutes I spent talking to a reporter wouldn't be wasted . . .
- A fursona need not correspond to a person’s attire at a furry event. As described by WikiFur (www.furry.wikia.com), a WikiPedia-like online encyclopedia, “[S]omeone who says they are a Furry is expressing an interest in anthropomorphic animals and/or creatures. How deep or meaningful that interest is varies greatly from person to person. Also, the breadth of a person’s interest in the fandom, and what ultimately makes them Furry, is specific to each individual.”
[and yes, they got the URL wrong - fortunately the Wikia admins are on the ball and had a redirect in minutes after I mentioned it]
