Can we please keep the furry images in /f/? I think it's established now that furry is its own fetish separate from regular drawn images that go in /d/… yet somehow furry art keeps being put in /d/ for the silliest reasons. I've counted the following excuses:
1. "There's no equivalent sub-fetish thread in /f/ (like mpreg or birth). So it's okay to put /f/ in those /d/ threads."
This is not a convincing argument. /f/ images should be placed in /f/ regardless of any other fetish the image is fulfilling. There is nothing stopping you from making /f/ equivalent threads for birth/mpreg/whatever if one really doesn't exist. We had one case very recently where someone used this excuse and there was already a thread in /f/ dedicated to that subfetish and they just hadn't checked. If an image is furry, it should be put in /f/.
2. "Requests for /f/ artist requests or edits aren't being fulfilled as fast as /d/ requests, so it's okay to put these requests in /d/."
This isn't going to get your request done. This is just going to irritate people who don't want to do /f/ requests. It goes both ways, sometimes the /f/ requests get done quicker than /d/ requests, but no one from /d/ goes to /f/ with non-furry material. So, why the other way around?
And the latest:
3. "There's a thread that's literally four years old, from a time there was no dedicated /f/ section on pregchan, and a mod back then said "post furry art, sure"."
Okay, so somehow despite all the thread purging and thread reply limits, there's still one thread in /d/ that dates back several years to 2014. Why use that thread now to post furry art when you have /f/ and /f/ equivalent threads? There has been no logic beyond "because I can, and I don't care that you don't like it," which is not very considerate. I'm sure when there wasn't an /f/ back in 2014 it made sense to do that, but there is an /f/ now. Why insist on putting it in /d/?Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
