Animations taken down in wake of Youtube persecution

Permanent Linkby MirceaKitsune on Mon May 14, 2018 5:14 pm

I don't want to dive into too much detail right now, since I'm honestly feeling too sick to even discuss the subject. As this affects my watchers as well I felt at least a notification is in order.

As of the last few weeks, Youtube has began a new rampage against content creators on its platform, randomly deleting videos from smaller channels and punishing them with strikes. The issue seems to have reached unprecedented heights this time: Even segments of cartoons that have aired on kids television are being deleted under the hallucinating excuse that they're violent and / or sexual. If you appeal such decisions and tell Youtube they've made a mistake, either your appeal is rejected or you are punished with a strike (if you weren't already) for daring to contest them. We suspect it's either some recent algorithm change, or Youtube has given trolls and lunatics access to their moderation tools entirely... whatever the case it's greatly harmed a lot of artists in a matter of days, with many...

RED ALERT for Net Neutrality

Permanent Linkby MirceaKitsune on Mon May 14, 2018 4:40 am

In only two days from now, the Senate is expected to vote on the CRA to block the FCC's repeal and restore Net Neutrality for everyone. EFF & friends are undergoing another massive effort to spread the word and mobilize the web. If you believe an uncensored internet matters, please call your constituent and tell them to support NetNeutrality this week, then spread the word to your friends so that they may do so as well!

Updated download link for Vore Tournament 2.0.0

Permanent Linkby MirceaKitsune on Sat Apr 21, 2018 3:36 pm

An important PSA for everyone trying to run Vore Tournament 2.0.0. Due to changes to how GitLab works, the download link mentioned in the announcement post is no longer valid: It will now download the latest Master version rather than the 2.0.0 tag, which is no longer compatible with Xonotic 0.8.2 due to updated config files! Please download VT 2.0.0 from this link instead: ...

The rest of the process remains unchanged: Unpack this archive, make sure the base folder it extracts to is named data_voretournament, drop it in the Xonotic root directory next to the data folder, and run xonotic with the required parameters as "xonotic.exe -customgamedirname2 data_voretournament".

Blocking people on art sites for opinions from Twitter

Permanent Linkby MirceaKitsune on Mon Apr 16, 2018 10:21 am

Time to speak my mind on another thing which is apparently, in fact, a thing. The cycle of learning new things every day never appears to end on this amazing world.

So it seems a new meme has emerged within this fandom: Blocking people from watching you on art sites (especially Furaffinity) if you don't like the social and political opinions they express on social media (namely Twitter). It's one of those things you don't even have a reason to imagine until you actually see it happen, and the sad part is it can even include people you would least expect it from: Every once in a while when I try to fave art, FA randomly informs me that people I've been watching for years have blocked me... without me ever speaking a word to them, nor they ever contacting me.

In none of those cases do I even have any idea what the reason is to begin with: I'm left asking myself "what the heck is this person's problem, how did I offend them"? I suspect it has to do with Twitter as it seems to have...

⚠ PSA - Decentralized & uncensored video platform for animators

Permanent Linkby MirceaKitsune on Fri Apr 13, 2018 4:32 pm

I wanted to take a moment to share something that might be very important to a lot of artists here... namely 2D / 3D artists who create NSFW video clips and films. If you are or know of any animators in the fandom, please spread the news to them: This may help make their lives a whole lot easier!

As some of you probably know, life hasn't been very fair to furry animators; When it comes to drawn art, there are several furry sites that let us share content more or less freely (Furaffinity, Inkbunny, Sofurry, Weasyl, many more). But since video is much more complicated to stream and takes a lot more resources to host, none of those sites let you upload it... unless of course you convert to flash and downgrade to an abominable quality so that it fits under 10MB. So far there have been no alternatives in this department either: Video sites are dominated by a few monopolies, with Youtube at the top followed by a few others such as Vimeo or DailyMotion... all of which have very strict rules against...
