Grr... this is the one of the biggest reasons I totally hate facebook: completely unwanted notifications of "potential friends" from people I have never known. It keeps nominating people simply because they're in my area or they went to the same school as me (about 20 years *AFTER* me). I've searched all over FB but I can't find the option to stop it doing this!

Amen to that Foxy! Furstralia should be the hub, not FB.

I *did* organise the Kyell Gold meet with Cluffy here Via Furstralia :P so It's not as if I dont try! X3

The Sad fact of the matter is, cross posting and trying to organise things (as well as upload photos) is a Pain in the rear to do for more than a few sites... I did that with the Kyell meet, and it worked ok, but I only went to that effort cause Meeting Kyell would be at the most frequent, a Once a year thing!
And unfortunately FB is just more trafficked and visited by more of the NSW furs, sure they have accounts here.. but I always hear the "Oh yea.. I can't be bothered logging into Furstralia to check" kinda line when I prod them.

Edit: Speaking of which, *despite* several pleas and links to post here to RSVP, only about a 3rd of the final attendance RSVP'ed here. The rest just knew the details from twitter and FB and just showed up/Prodded me from there. Dunno what this Says about, furs, but it does show what the preferred 'hub' is.

It's no reflection on you KaiAdin; I was speaking more generally. Activity in the Furstralia forum is on the decline and it's a real shame because Facebook is not an exclusively furry website where furs can post and *know* they'll be acknowledged by an all-furry group. IMHO we're thinning ourselves out by not doing so.

I've been trying very hard to encourage activity here - any time that a new discussion topic comes to my mind or if there's a bit of furry news then I post here, but it doesn't seem to be helping.

I personally *HATE* and despite FB. Dreading the idea that a time is coming where I would need to keep in touch with the community there rather than on a real furry forum.
