Re: Currently existing UK group with similar views to Burned Furs

Similar in what way, exactly? FAF are just people who are sick of the way that their furmeets have turned into pickup sessions. They have made no statements about furry porn, and don't have any manifestos, unlike the Burned Furs.

Perhaps we all might be better off is a page was written that compares/contrasts FAF to Burned Furs? --Dmuth 16:15, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Oops! Still getting used to commenting properly :) No, I don't feel it'd be worth it; the FAF are such a small group and their sole dissatisfaction is with the state of British furmeets. I was surprised they had an article, in fact. But yeah, I suppose I can see why people might say they're similar to the BFs.

I think this be moved to "Burned Furs", to conform with other listings in Philosophical groups. I see there's currently a redirect from there, but shouldn't the main article be in that space? (I'm new, so I didn't want to try doing it without checking in.) --Tom Howling 21:02, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Actually yes, throughout the article they are refered to in plural and the group is plural. I say do the move. Do go through afterwards though and edit all the links if you can that point to the old page (See the What links here link in the Toolbox), don't mark for deletion though in case people mis-link in future. -Nidonocu - talk Nidonocu 01:56, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)
O.K.. I tried to move it, but there's already a redirect at "Burned Furs", so I can't move the page there. What's the standard M.O. in such situations? Temporarily rename the redirect page? Delete it (how?)? --Tom Howling 16:50, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  1. Copy the text of 'Burned Fur'.
  2. Go to 'Burned Furs', then go back with the no-redirect link after you are redirected.
  3. Edit 'Burned Furs', paste in the 'Burned Fur' text, and give your edit the summary 'Created from [[Burned Fur]]'
  4. Replace 'Burned Fur' with a redirect.
Authorship's retained, and no admin bit needed.

Furry Manifesto[edit]

The Furry Manifesto can be found here, via WebArchive. Should this be quoted in this entry, or should a new entry be created?

I'd lean towards copying the whole text into a seperate entry, for historical purposes. Carl Fox 03:44, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Ehh... link. We don't necessarily have permission to copy the Furry Manifesto that burned fur used.. so we can't take it and release it under GFDL or CC since it's not ours. It's safer to do a link Redcard 16:52, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)
