About

Furry could be said to be a lot of things, but above all, it’s a collection of people.  People, with all of their differences and similarities, their overlapping sub-societies, their petty arguments and tangled relationships.  The goal at [adjective][species] as a metafurry resource is to take a look at that from the inside (and maybe occasionally from the outside) and explore this jumble of a fandom.

The name [adjective][species] is a synecdoche, a way of expressing the whole of our weirdness through a smaller part of it.  Our mascot is, accordingly, RandomWolf, rendered accurately in the banner by Floe.

  1. This site encompasses something I have been looking for since I ‘became’ a Fur back in 1999, an in depth look at all the ways that Furs express their connection to the animal within. Thank you. (Faved)

  2. Glad to hear that there are Furs who are interested about the fandom as a whole. There’s a lot of variation in our little group. Heck, There’s even minorities of minorities here (like Mormon Furs). Each circle within has their unique culture and values, and it’s a good thing too.

  3. I am curious, though, on the whole furry concept, of just how close this comes to the ancestral “spirit guide” idea. That we all have the animal within us that guides us and influences us. I very heavily identify with both dragons and lions and there is much in their nature that influences my personality. Any thoughts?

  4. I have looked through AS for a contact address to site admins and found none. This is why I am addressing you via this reply to “About”.

    My question regards our AS user profiles. I assume that AS provides user profiles so that other users might learn a little more about each other, and to provide some contact information i.e. through users’ various websites. However, despite what I consider some thorough searching, I cannot find how to access other AS members profiles while I am logged in to AS. I see that some users who post comments have links in their user names but these apparently don’t provide any access to their AS profiles. The only way I can access my own profile is to log in. Unlike LiveJournal and Dreamwidth, I cannot view my own AS profile unless I am logged in.

    So, is there a way for users to view one anothers profiles while we are logged in? (If not, then what’s the point of having profiles :) And, secondly, is there a better way to contact the AS admins when we have questions such as mine?

  5. Hi, I’m looking to contributing on a biweekly basis if anybody has a question i will research it and write a article but if it is something small i will reply to a comment.
