Hello again everyone,
With this dev post, I would like to discuss what AnthroDynamics means, and what it means to be a member of this community. The dictionary defines anthro (an abbreviation of the prefix anthropo-) as, "human, of a human being, or relating to humankind", and dynamics as, "the forces or properties that stimulate growth". For us, AnthroDynamics is a community of furries who are all human (Anthro-), and who wish to promote growth and stimulate others (-Dynamics). We strive every day to ensure that this community remains one of the best communities for furries and furry-related subject matter. As such, we have developed our Terms of Service to ensure that everyone who participates here can do so without needing to worry about content that might be harmful to the human psyche. While we do understand that there are some subjects and material that people do find attractive, we want to ensure that the community itself remains one that encourages all manner of people to come and interact with our other users. As such, please note that we will be enforcing the heart of our Terms of Service throughout the site. Should you come across content which you believe contradicts the ToS, please use the Report feature, found as a button on most content blocks.
Furthermore, we have enabled several features across the site which should help you avoid content that you don't wish to see. You can ignore a member completely by visiting your Ignored Users settings, and you can manage ignored tags in your User Profile (Edit my Profile) settings. This allows you to customize what content you don't wish to see, while still allowing for other users to enjoy it. We feel that so long as content doesn't directly breach our ToS, it has a place here on the site. Even if that content is meant to evoke a reaction, or discuss a particularly difficult or sensitive subject. Debate is healthy, and communication is key for much of this. Obviously, the staff of AnthroDynamics will not tolerate outright flaming, so please be aware that your conduct should be within the spirit of our community guidelines.
