If possible, I would like to merge the two pages. However, I'm not sure how to do so whilst conforming to Wikia format. Is there a specifc help page with instruction on how to do this? Thanks for mentioning it.

Is it possible for a Wikifur admin to delete this redirect page so Mississippi Anthropomorphics can be moved to MAP! so I can move MS Anthro to Mississippi Anthropomorphics? The reason is simple. Nobody I know who was in MAP! even associates Mississippi Anthro with MAP!. They associate it with the modern group MS Anthro which just so happens to share the same name, but are otherwise completely different and nearly 10 years apart and ran by different people in a different region. They're not the same group and combining the two pages into one would make little sense. You can see how in all media of MAP!, the logo says MAP!. So it'd make total sense to move it here so Mississippi Anthropomorphics can be the page of the modern and active group. So basically all I'm asking is that the old group is transferred here and the new group is transferred to the old group's page. It's something I can't do as a regular user due to the fact that this redirect page has edit history as it used to be the page for Mississippi Anthro until the two were merged. It'd be a really helpful change so Google results point to the active furry group rather than a long dead, 10+ year old group that the majority of people who were in it don't even live in the state anymore.

To SockyNoob and WikiFur Admin from JarekoJosh 15:04 Wed05Jan2020 - Please, by all means, allow MS Anthro to use the name Mississippi Anthropomorphics and delete MAP! (unless MS Anthro wishes to use it as well). I had completely forgotten about this page and it is not right for it to take up space and create confusion if another community group would like/needs to use it. Along with others, I created the original MAP! page and its supporting iconography and verbage. Such things are long defunct and I have archived them. I do not know how to operate within WikiFur well enough to make the change myself if I am even able to do so or I would. Please appeal via email if necessary and I will gladly facilitate. Thank you!
I'd still like for MAP! to be on this site. There's no sense in completely erasing it from existence. Just have it on the MAP! page and have the new group on the page recently blanked out. I'm very much interested in the history of groups/events/etc and I think it's worth remembering. If you can contribute to that page in any way like recalling anything else you used to do or when or why it disbanded, please share it on that page! It's always nice to see what once was. One of the admins of my group, South Mississippi Furry Association, apparently attended meets with you guys way back then so he's basically the only person I know with info from back then. It's just crazy to see that back then there were TONS of furries from Hattiesburg and now I only know a handful from there and the rest are on the coast or attending Mississippi State University. So yeah, I'm definitely gonna paste the old page into MAP! and turn MS Anthro into a redirect page. Thanks for being basically the pioneers for furmeets here! :D User:SockyNoob 15:20, 5 February 2020 (CST).

I think we have it good now. The only thing that really needs deleting now is the redirect page MS Anthro as MAP! is now the old group and Mississippi Anthropomorphics has been converted to the new group. User:SockyNoob 17:30, 5 February 2020 (CST).
I'll be digging through some old accounts shortly to unearth some details on this group. That was about 3 email accounts ago, but I'm sure I have some details that will be helpful. Catoxis (talk) 20:38, 7 February 2020 (EST)
