Went to FA the other day to check out the wider part of the fandom but came away feeling letdown after typing in many basic search terms. I have went there occasionally in the past months to look around as stated above and consider it as an extra place. Sometimes I did find some neat feral pieces but after wading through many themes I'd rather not see in my searches it did not feel personally worthwhile for me.
As far as here since I found a handful of artists over time to follow, its still a decent place to stay at. Yet since I feel the type of work I follow is a small piece of the overall fandom, I just wonder how long that will last over time.
For my own animal work, the members/followers here have helped out throughout the past months. I have heard the saying of keeping the fire burning, and that is true; yet I don't want this site to be the main motivator even when things go alright, so I want to be careful about not overdoing it.
