WikiProject Furry assessment

Guidelines[edit]

  • Don't add articles without sources. Lack of good sources is the number one cause of deletionism in Wikipedians.
  • Users shouldn't need intimate knowledge of furry fandom to be able to verify an article. Learn how to use references. See Furry convention and Samuel Conway for examples.
  • There is no such thing as a "good" or "bad" fact - it's either verifiable or it's not. If you think it may be misleading, explain the context, but let readers come to their own conclusions.
  • Be careful copying from WikiFur. Some information may be inappropriate for Wikipedia. Further sources will probably be required. If you do copy, use an appropriate attribution template.
  • Link to WikiFur only if it goes beyond Wikipedia's maximum depth of coverage. Use "Article name at WikiFur" or "WikiFur:Article name", not just "Article name". Add to External links.
  • Avoid adding the project banner to an article's talk page unless the article shows a clear relation to this project's topic. If it's not clear, add relevant information to the article first.

Requested articles[edit]

  • Lists of reputable furry forums and non-yiff sites, primarily for the use of those new to the fandom
    Things to bear in mind is that Wikipedia is not a web directory, and there is a lack of reliable sources on the topic. I imagine a list could be written in close to an encyclopedic manner (see list of furry conventions), but defining what "reputable" is concerns me, as does the idea that we would censor it based on a sexual content. What business do we have hiding such sites from anyone? The closest I think we could come to an actual article is something like history of furry fandom, which would discuss the larger sites in a historical context. A pure list is probably best left to others, such as the Recommended Anthropomorphics List. GreenReaper (talk) 22:37, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
This has been partially implemented at furry fandom#Websites and online communities, however it does not contain any specific forums (just community forums) as none of them stood out as notable, nor does it restrict itself to PG sites (as Wikipedia is not censored).

  14. H Hog (talk · contribs) - I'm mostly part of the Sonic Sub-fandom, but I have a fairly decent knowledge of other Furry areas of interest, too. Also, regular cleanup.
  15. Bear Eagleson (talk · contribs) - furry art, furry role-playing games (especially World Tree). I don't have as much time to edit Wikipedia as I used to, but I'll do what I can.
