Some history about Aryion.com:

It all started around March 2005. One of the more well-known artists in the vore community, Strega, experienced some difficulty with Yahoo! Groups, where all his works and his e-mail account deleted without warning. Once I became aware of that fact, I decided to make a website which hosted all of Strega's art. Launched in April 2005, the address was https://strega.aryion.com, called Strega's Portal.

Strega's Portal was quite a success. After a while, a few other artists expressed an interest in having something similar. Even though all of them combined still didn't have half the collection Strega did at that time, so I made another portal. At first, it was merely called Artist's Portal at artists.aryion.com. However, after we received a few story submissions, and after we got a very lovely banner created by Dorogato, the name became "Eka's Portal".

Around October 2005, the site started having numerous downtimes due to the increase in traffic. Strega and I agreed to merge the two sections. Using Eka's Portal as the name, we officially reopened the site under the domain name "//aryion.com" on November 1st, 2005.

The purpose of the site is still making a place for artists, but also we included authors and other types of contributions. Over time, the site has changed and added many things: four different hosting companies, different software, Interactive Stories area, Vore Wiki section and various other projects. Around the time Yumchat started having difficulty, we added our chat as a semi-official replacement. We recently added a Upload Forum and Map to fit the growing needs of this community. A bit after, we added a blog system as well.

When the site first started, it had nothing but a gallery, but we realized drawing is not the only way people enjoy vore and probably not the only thing valuable this community has to offer. So we have expanded our range of services. This change doesn't mean we have changed our core mission, only that we believe that by doing more and different things we can enhance our original mission. On top of making a site for artists, we will try to make the best vore site possible for anyone.

Aryion.com is an Adults Only website. Any individuals under 18 years of age are not allowed to visit!  If you are aware of any other user under the age of 18, you must inform the site operators.

3) Only one account per person.
 

There is currently only one account type ( Click here to sign up ) which give you posting right for the forum, personalized user setting, ability to start a gallery (after requesting for one), adding yourself to the map, and a few other useful functions. 

 

4) Be respectful of others at all times.

The purpose of the site is to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas, sharing material, form discussion, and other general entertainment. Occasionally, there will be conflicts that arise when people voice opinions. Be courteous when disagreeing with others. It is possible to disagree without being insulting.

5) Ranting is prohibited

A rant is a post which is long-winded, redundant and filled with angry, non-constructive comments. A free exchange of ideas is essential to building a strong sense of community and helpful in the development of the game, but rants are disruptive and incite flaming and trolling. Please post your thoughts in a concise, transparent manner and avoid going off on rambling tangents. If you must rant, please limit them only to your blog.

6) Personal attacks are prohibited.

Commonly known as flaming, personal attacks are posts which are designed to berate or insult another person. The text of this nature is not beneficial to the community spirit and will not be tolerated. All users are cautioned to avoid allowing an "in character" dispute become an "out of character" personal attack. The website is designed for role-playing and portraying a role, and it is sometimes easy for tempers to flare when the lines between the virtual world and the real world are crossed. Keep in character disputes in private, please, unless it is a mutual, in character exchange.

7) Trolling is prohibited.

Trolling is the word used to describe a post that is deliberately designed to anger and insulting the members of the community. Posts of this nature are disruptive and do not convey a friendly attitude.

8) No posting of personal information

Please respect the privacy of other users and do not give out information such as phone numbers, addresses, instant messaging accounts or e-mail address. Private conversations are only allowed to be posted publicly if mutually agreed by all parties involved in such dialogue.

9) Private communication between the moderators and administrators of the site and the users is not to be made public on this site or by any other venue.

You are not permitted to publicize or discuss any private correspondence (including escalation) received from any of those mentioned above.

10) Warnings and bans are not to be discussed on the site.

Such matters shall remain private between the administrators and moderators, and the user. Questions or comments concerning warnings and bans will be conveyed through e-mail or private messaging. Likewise, discussions regarding moderator actions are not permitted on the forum or the chat.

11) Spamming, bumping, and pyramid quoting are prohibited.

Spam is considered to be repetitive posting of the same topic or text or nonsensical posts that have no substance and are often designed to annoy other forum users. Bumping posts more frequently than once per week per thread to keep them near the top of the list is also prohibited. Pyramid quoting is a response to a forum thread which contains the quotes of four or more previous posters. Posts of this nature are not conducive to community spirit and are unwelcome.

12) Redundant threads will be deleted.

As a courtesy to others before beginning a new thread, please look to see if an active thread on that topic has already been established. If so, place your comments there instead. Multiple threads on the same subject clutter up the forum needlessly and many good ideas may be lost. Keep discussions about one topic to one thread only.

13) Impersonating another user, moderator and administrator are strictly prohibited.

You are expressly forbidden from impersonating anyone else, including those named above, on the forum or in the chat, even in jest. Impersonation may be grounds for a permanent ban.

14) All post and submission must be about or related to vore. ( definition here )

Posts about other material, products or services not associated with vore are not permitted except in the following off-topic areas: The "Out of chat world" room and "Vore room" in chat, the "Rest of the world" Forum. Specific "Non-vore" folder in a personal gallery and Personal blog.

15) You may not post advertisements.

Posts discussing or linking to any for-profit organization must request permission before any posting, even if related to vore. Personal donations, commission related to vore are allowed in a designated area like a personal blog and artist forum.

Seeking Roleplay advertisement limited to the seeking roleplay forum. Blogs, gallery, or other area are all considered inappropriate for advertising roleplay seeking.

16) Post constructively.

Negative, but constructive feedback can be very useful, provided that it is presented in a civil, factual manner. Tell us what you don't like and why and how you feel it could be improved. Posts that are insulting and rude may be deleted, no matter how valid the ideas behind them may be.

17) Disputes which cannot be resolved between forum users and moderators may be arbitrated by the administrators.

To discuss any problems or concerns that you were unable to resolve, for example, being banned, find copyright issue or whatever else that you can't find someone to talk to, feel free to send feedback or e-mail admin@aryion.com directly. All feedback and email will be read and responded by an administrator.

18) You may not use any insecure, public or shared internet connection to access any portion of this site.

Frequently Asked Question (FAQ):

Q: What is Vore / Vorarephile?

A: Basically, Vore is a sexual fantasy involving consumption of others in various ways. Check our Vore Wiki or our Forum for more information.

 

Q: Is it like cannibalism?

A: You didn't check the links I just gave you, did you? Anyway, the answer is absolutely NOT. I can understand where someone can make the connection, but to say vore is like cannibalism is like saying you eat vegetables because you like the color green. In the vast majority cases, it is entirely irrelevant. Vore and cannibalism have no real connection whatsoever, the only thing similar is that they both involve eating. Yes, there are cases where works can be considered cannibal, but it is not the focus of this site. Anything displayed on this site are strictly fantasy.

 

Q: Why are you doing this?

A: To let "vore" be recognized and understood by as many people as possible, besides serving the community.

 

Q: Who runs this site?

A: Currently, mostly me, Eka, and my partner Leshana!

  • Arcturus - Helped me on troubleshooting some of my coding on this website, and provided hosting for our site for four months until we finally got our dedicated server.
  • boredpenguin - Thanks for the help with some miscellaneous coding
  • Mouse, Inferno, dW- Thanks for the editing help!
  • eXedit - He has been a great help to the site and the chatrooms in the past. Many advanced features received lots of help from him. I hope everyone here will appreciate his work!
  • Leshana - She has made a lot of improvements to the chat room the gallery, and pretty much everywhere else on the site that would not have been possible at all without her. Everyone here should appreciate her help at least as much as mine!
  • Varenx - He spent some time making the chat's spellchecker, as well as catching a few security issue for us to fix.
  • Callisto - He helped us with some coding including the prototype of the private chat log viewer and caching switch for the gallery
  • Also many thanks to those who help me moderate the forum, upload and update material, looking after our chatrooms, those who have donated for our cause, and finally, all the artists and writers, for sharing their works!

 

Q: I love this site! But here is a tiny little thing you missed...

A: If you find any error, problem or any other way you need to contact me. Tell me all about it here!

 

Q: I hate this site and everything that you stand for!

A: Sorry to hear, but you can still tell me about it here.

 

Q: Can I change my user name?

A: No. We do not do name change beside for legal reason. If you have an excellent reason, feel free to tell me here.

 

Q: I found something I need to complain about, how do I contact the staff?

A: Please tell us about it here. Or send an e-mail to admin@aryion.com

 

Q: I am an artist/writer/contributor and I want to put something on your site, how do I do that?

A: Any content contributors will need an account for this portal. If you don't have one, please sign up!

  • If you are an artist or writer and want your album in our gallery for writing and or drawing, please send Eka a private message including one example or more of your completed vore related work for reference. If it is a story, make sure to send the entire, completed story.
    • Guidelines for submission: All work must be created by you, or commissioned by you with you having full right to the item. If any work is not your creation, you must add in the caption/comment who the original creator is. Otherwise, I will treat it as a copyright violation, and I might have to remove your album because it is impossible for us to monitor artist/authors and keep track of thousands of submissions every month. You must have permission before you upload someone else's work!
    • Guidelines for non-vore material: Please create a sub-album named "Non-vore" and put anything that is not related to vore in there, with no subfolders under the album called "non-vore" please. The focus of this site is still by-and-large vore. Also, please keep at least 50%+ of your work vore related.
    • Other guidelines: Currently we do not accept any Photo edit, non-original sprite edit, and non-original 3d models rendering image submission into our gallery until further notices. Please keep those in the forum. Originally made sprite and original 3dmodels with minor details (such as background or other minor objects) not originally created, are still acceptable
  •  
  • If you have a unique project idea, for example, a flash card project, or a media database, also please send Eka a private message.
  • If you have created any vore related material you made and wanted to share and receive comments but do not wish to have a gallery, please use our Forum dedicated for "Work to be shared!".
  • If you found any vore material to share, please feel free to upload it here. Make sure to follows forum rule!
  • If you have other ideas or suggestions about adding any content to this site related to vore, please feel free to let me know as well. I'm always looking for people to help add more to this site!
  • This site is entirely non-profit, and do not support commercial advertisement. If you are looking for an arrangement with advertisement opportunity for commercial purpose, Please talk to us directly.

As always, your contributions will be greatly appreciated. We aim to make the process of contributing to this site as painless as possible. You do not need to know any coding at all to upload your drawings or start your project. Everything on this site is point and click or using WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) interface like Microsoft word. Don't take my word for it, try editing the Vore Wiki for a demonstration.

 

Q: I want to donate your site!

A: You can make donations to our site if you wish to help our site stay financially healthy. Running a service like this is costly, and every bit of your help counts!
All donations received will be used on the website only. All transactions are completely anonymous unless you specify your wish to send us your information within the donation process. If you have a name that you want to be listed as, please send us your information after you donate.

 

 

Q: Beyond these, how else can I help?

A: Make constructive and useful comments on the artist's, writer's, or other contributor's work. They will be greatly appreciated!





Q: How do I link to your site?

A: Feel free to use our banner here and link to our front page so everyone will see the age warning. Our front page address is //aryion.com

Q: Can you link to my vore site?

A: Absolutely! Just go here to add your link to our weblink! If it is not vore, we will still link it, but we might have to add a non-vore category for you.

 

 

Following is the annoying but necessary part of any website's effort to protect themselves, which probably will never be used offensively. If you have any concern regarding the following disclaimer, feel free to give us feedback.
