Getting Involved in the Fandom?

Postby Snowy » Thu Sep 22, 2016 5:46 pm

Hey everyone I'm Snowy, and I'm from Melbourne. I'm new here to the forums and the fandom in general so I don't have a solid fursona yet (but I know I want to be a snow leopard and I thought snowy was a good name ^_^ and I was a furry before I knew being a furry was a thing ;P

I've joined this forum and FA, but I'd like to know some ways of getting more involved in the furry community, I don't think I'll be going to any cons for a while (I haven't told anyone about my furryness) but I'll probably go to supernova. If anyone knows some good websites, games, facebook groups etc. that would be greatly appreciated.

Also any tips on creating a fursona would be good because it seems harder to involve yourself in the fandom without having a fursona.

I'm looking forward to getting more involved in the fandom and talking to some furs and meeting some irl and of course going to
cons eventually. :)

first of all good choice in fursona ;)
if you go to the state section of the forums you'll see links to the facebook groups in Melbourne and also a few Australia wide ones. Confurgence is the main Melbourne con and its going to be in January 2017

Thanks Foxy_Malone :) good to see another snow leopard, I might go to conference in 2017.

Hi, Snowy!
FA is still the main furry place despite all the constant drama and controversies there. Weasyl and Furry Network are great furry places to be too! Also, just keep your eyes open and follow links around the place and you should find lots of furry friends! Cons are a great way to meet a whole lot of furs at once too but they are a bit... Full-on for people new to the fandom. I'd suggest joining some furry facebook groups and meeting some local furs in your area first! There are heaps of furs in Melbourne! Here's a group of Victorian furs that meet in Melbourne regularly. Also, Here's a big group of furs from Melbourne.
I hope that helps!

Finally, don't be shy! Most furries I've met are friendly and great people so just be brave and start talking to people and you'll find yourself drawn right into the fandom!
Frostwood Forever! <3
