Let's Help Weasyl Out! by Jotaku

Hi everyone! Welcome to Weasyl!

I know this site is super new to a lot of you, and no doubt pretty dang confusing! I am by far no pro with it, but I really love it so far, and hope to help others joining in any way I can!

First off, I would really like to share this link, that provides some really useful information--much thanks to noiserut!
https://www.weasyl.com/journal/24682

Second, I would highly like to stress anyone who has joined Weasyl, please put yourself in this database:
http://projects.weasyl.com/soft/
This way, not only can new users better find you, but also help YOU find people you wanna follow here, as well!

Third, with small edit: I would like to suggest people check out fancyowls tip journal, as well! It has some great info and links I've missed! : )
https://www.weasyl.com/journal/24895



Let's help Weasyl out! Tips/Suggestions to keep it active!

All that out of the way, I would like to maybe suggest some tips/ideas to those who would like to help build up the Weasyl userbase. I understand many people legitimately want to leave FA, for good. But that is a very very hard thing to do if you need money as an artist, and even harder if people can't stick with it. 8(

First off, please do not harass, pester, or badtalk anyone who does not wish to leave FA. I haven't seen this yet, but I also do not want to see this. I've already gotten/seen nasty comments for people willingly choosing to leave that site, so please lead by example and don't give it back.

  • Post! Obvious enough, by just BEING here to post, it's providing new content for people to work with.
  • Interact! Try to comment/talk with people. IDK great thing about small communities is being able to connect better, right? I'm doing my best to take advantage of that, and being able to make conversation with people is really making it a pleasant experience so far. I already wanna stay!
  • Offer extra stuff. A lot of people are offering free things, trades they wouldn't normally be open/offering, etc. I think this sorta thing also helps build the sense of compassion and community necessary for a place to flourish.
  • Make certain content Weasyl exclusive.
  • Open commissions here first, before FA (or other sites?)
  • Have special, weasyl-only commission offers.
  • Try to make a habit of commissioning artists through this site. Both artists and buyers are equally important in this. Artists wanting to make this place work will do a little extra to make it worth while, and buyers who would like to see this place kick off should do the same with meeting half way!
  • Tell your friends! This is more than just a furry site (in fact, it's an everything site!) So maybe your artist friends would like to know about a new art site and nice community to build up?
  • Have a problem/suggestion? Give it on the forums! I haven't tried this, but I have heard exceptionally good things about the administration for this site so far. And hey! Beta is still in the title for a reason, right?
  • Suggested by FancyOwls: Post on weasyl a few days (or more) before you post to FA and remind people in the comment of that submission that you are doing so.
  • Suggested by FancyOwls: Post cropped thumbnails advertising they can see the full version on weasyl.
  • Suggest stuff to add to this list??

I am 100% for making this place work and build up. I have been really tired with FA even before this recent stuff, and have been considering look for a new art site to frequent as a home base for a while. I'm sure I'm not the only one, either! If you feel the same, work with me here! Let's really make Weasyl work guys! : ) /fistpump

    This is an absolutely fantastic journal. I kind of adore your enthusiasm for Weasyl and I really hope it's infectious.
    I can honestly say I love this site already.

    • Link

      Ah I've talked to some people who are really hesitant and negative about Weasyl, without really trying to approach it with a positive attitude, and I think that is a shame!
      A site is as good as its community, I think... And I would really like to put forward an example of making it great, and attracting people to stay! ^V^

      • Link

        I can't help but agree. On FA I always felt too intimidated to talk to people much, but this site already seems so warm and welcoming. I'm even posting on the forums. ;u;
        I too have run into a lot of negativity about the site, especially from the folks who are a bit butthurt about people leaving FA for it. I kinda hope they'll loosen up and maybe even come join the community over here someday.

        • Link

          I must admit some I hope don't join Weasyl at all;;;
          Especially those who tend to respond with 'lol love the drama /eats popcorn' type mentality.
          But there are a lot of reluctant users I really hope can maybe someday be persuaded!

          I understand about not speaking up much... I never had that trouble with FA, but I feel like that on dA a lot. It's just so big, I don't even know where to start to try and make any sort of social connection with people there.

          • Link

            Well, yeah. I agree that it would be a lot better without the cruel people coming, but what I meant is perhaps one day they might go through a magical transformation to become a good person. :D

            ... yeah, Worry. Don't hold your breath.

            • Link

              Ahahaha, I understand! Stay positive, right! People might be able to change those negative views eventually! Yosh!

  • Link

    Thank you thank you thank you! <3

    • Link

      <3 <3 <3! ^V^

  • Link

    These are some great suggestions, thank you for sharing! :)

    • Link

      Of course, any time!

  • Link

    All bow down the mighty post of the Jotaku

    But seriously, this is really cool! We need this attitude to be infectious!

    • Link

      Ahahah, well I do my best! /sweats
      And yeah, I hope I can lead by example in some way, y'know? Stick to a positive attitude and get others to be positive about all of it as well fjsk;fjdlk

      • Link

        I'm super happy to be here. I'd been on FA since 2009 but barely active.
        As soon as I got on here, I've had an amazing experience and met looks of welcoming people.

        LET'S GET THIS HAPPY TRAIN CHUGGING!!!!

    • Link

      YE OF COURSE You're such a sweetie /touches ur face

      I will probably be following that one too... try to keep the more personal stuff off FA atm aaa >3<

  • Link

    YES absolutely :D:D I for one am planning to do everything I possibly can to make this site more attractive to watchers! And the community on this site is so nice right now -- small but friendly <33

    This is a great journal, thank you for posting it :D

    • Link

      Of course! And definitely the same. I am p hopeful about this site going well but AH WE WILL HAVE TO SEE cuz you never know weeps

  • Link

    I don't know why, but I feel really resistant to using Weasyl more. Like I associate Weasyl with the SJW hate-blog FurryScumbags even though as far as I know they're not affiliated in any way except the blog liking Weasyl more than FA.

    • Link

      Ahhh I don't really know anything about that blog?
      But Weasyl isn't exactly a furry site, either. It's not presented as one, anyway.
      I think any connections are coincidental, like you said. And a website is definitely what it's community make it into. If you want it to be a better/safer/more likeable place, help make it that way! Y'know? : )

      • Link

        I just remember that this blog, which some furries are citing, is really toxic. It's like a reverse version of Stormfront. It accuses Wolfy-Nail of being a possible rapist for his rape porn, it says that anyone who still likes Renard's music is a "rape supporter" because he allegedly sexually assaulted someone, it accused a fursuiter in a kimono of racism due to "cultural appropriation" and it claimed that herm porn was transphobic for "fetishizing transgendered people" and such.
        Even if you are totally against Zaush, I strongly recommend to not heed what FurryScumbags has to say.
        I know it's irrational, but I have this association in my mind between Weasyl and that hateful vile blog.
        I have this feeling that if I use Weasyl I'm letting these hateful trolls win.
        People need to know that you can't fight racism with anti-white racism, misogyny with misandry, homophobia with heterophobia, and transphobia with cisphobia.

        • Link

          Weasyl is an independent group of individuals that wanted to make a gallery space for artists who wanted something others sides didn't.
          That tumblr is made by another individual who may endorse weasyl AND host content you don't agree with, but otherwise is not in control of Weasyl.

          It's ironic that you list all these "we aren't all xyz because the author of this work we like has done abc" but you're clearly doing "this site has been mentioned by abc so I will lump it with the title of xyz". It's a real disservice to the people that made and funded this project from the start because of what other people that you don't like promote using it. Decide for yourself honestly but this topic is REALLY derailing the original journal topic 6-6a

          • Link

            I never said I wanted to think that. It's a thought I do want to get rid of.
            I don't want to associate Weasyl with bigots. It's a really good site, and yes it's better than FA.

        • Link

          I will keep those things in mind, though, thank you

          But I also think Noiserut makes some good points too.

          I understand having those connections, and not being able to entirely erase them, and also feeling that associating with this site is somehow supporting those people. I also don't want to belittle this view in any way, but it's true I highly doubt any actual connection.
          I mean, ina way, the same could be said about being weary of this site, y'know? Cuz then you're letting someone uninvolved influence you in a negative manner. Of course, whether or not you feel comfortable here is completely up to you. And if you don't like this site much, that is totally okay!

          But I would try to separate them if you can, and try to view this site freshly. See if any of its users or staff promote anything you are hating from this blog, before letting it stop you from participating.

          • Link

            I know that I need to keep an open mind. It would be like refusing to get a dog because Hitler had a dog.

            • Link

              Ahaha, very true!
              I hope you're able to overcome it and come to enjoy this site more then! /salute

  • Link

    This is a great list of suggestions! I hope it spreads like wildfire!

    • Link

      Ah yes, me too! I hope it helps/encourages people in some positive manner! u vu

      • Link

        I've made a journal and posted a link to your entry here :3

        • Link

          Sweet! Thank you for advertising, hopefully it does help people out with the transition!

  • Link

    Thanks for the links and artist suggestions! I've been on here for a while, but haven't really explored much yet. Least this will help get the ball rolling, I hope.

    All in all, welcome!~ X3

    • Link

      I haven't gotten myself too much into trying things out, but I def plan to. It's just kinda fun learning a new site and all its tricks, imo!
      Ahahah I find new things a bit exciting though.

      • Link

        Haha, nothing wrong with that. It's a nice and welcome sight to see a bit of livelihood and enthusiasm here. :3

  • Link

    wehh this is such a nice journal thank you so much for the suggestions <3

    • Link

      Of course! I really hope it helps!

  • Link

    [edits journal to link to this because yes same feels ❤ ❤ ❤ ] so good |9w9)! andsokindofyou |wT#)!!

    • Link

      Ahaha yosh! Yay for working together to make Weasyl the best it can be!
      /fistbump

  • Link

    Silently adds the appreciation for actually being able to upload things once without the quality being thrown into a gutter.

    • Link

      UM. THIS TOO?????
      I always hated how FA did that. : /

  • Link

    Weeps openly thank you so much for the feature, and this journal has a really positive attitude that I think I needed! Although I'm one of the people who doesn't want to completely leave FA, I'm 100% fine with updating just as frequently on Weasyl. I've also been considering making a batch of adopts solely for weasyl!

    Again, thanks for this journal and mention ;___; KISS KISS

    • Link

      Of course! You're always super sweet and your art is great hun! ;V;/
      And I think that's a great idea! Hopefully it goes over well! :D

  • Link

    /slides back in

    It could be a good idea if somebody made a sort of Weasyl Quick Tips journal that teaches folks how to link to artists on other websites as well as making icons for THIS site appear! There's an easy to find Markup Guide on the site itself but a lot of newcomers might not know where to look for it, so giving them a few handy basics could be a good jumpstart!

    • Link

      Oh yes! I didn't link it because Noiserut's journal already had the markup guide in it. But if someone wanted to make a journal like this, I would be more than willing to add it to this one via link! :D

  • Link

    I have to agree with Worry up there, about always feeling too intimidated to talk to most artists. ;A; Because yeah. It can be hard to get into a network on a big site. Especially when you aren't up to snuff in the eyes of the community (skill wise). lol

    But thank you for the journal. And definitely things to keep in mind. I admit, I've been more talkative on here lately, than any other site. It's really refreshing, as I'd almost forgotten what it's like to join a site and actually connect. Instead of hiding off in my corner, and hoping someone notices me. lol

    • Link

      Ahah, oh man, if you think FA was bad to get connected to people you should try dA;;;; @w@
      But this is definitely a plus to a small community. And I think if you get involved WHILE it's still small, it helps you out a great deal later down the line if/when it gets bigger, too! :D

      • Link

        Oh I know too well about DA. But, when I first joined DA, I was really active and talkative. And ended up making a lot of friends over seven or so years on my first account. xD When I made my second account, I was much more quiet, and mostly kept to myself. And I learned that, you don't get as many connections that way. But I didn't ever really make an effort to change it. 8| I guess just because of feeling stagnant.

        I totally agree though. When the community is small, it's the best time. And it does help in the long run. C:

        • Link

          I think dA has just become sooo much harder to connect in over the past few years, too. By trying to make it more 'fair' to its users with groups and whatnot, I think it's actually made it harder in some ways too!
          @w@

          • Link

            Oh, I can totally agree with that. Somehow it's EXCEPTIONALLY harder to get a talkative watcher-base. Let alone a tiny, itty-bitty fanbase. lol
            Unless you draw anime. It's somewhat easier if you do that. But, while I still borrow a few things from my anime days (I just like doing over sized eyes), I'm not... really an anime artist anymore. lol I like it. But not what I enjoy drawing. Dx So, since my style is a little 'weird' for some people.... wellllll. lol

    Add: post cropped thumbnails advertising they can see the full version on weasyl

      Yooooooo Just wanted to let you know I've both linked your journal as well as added your suggestions. Thank you so much for the ideas, dude! :D

  • Link

    Love the positivity. I only migrated over a couple of days ago but I think my favourite parts of Weasyl so far are how friendly everyone seems to be, how easy it is to find artists I hadn't heard of before and especially the layout of the site. It's without a doubt the most aesthetically pleasing art sharing site I've ever come across, which I personally think is important given that it is an ART sharing site haha. Very pleased that I found your work and decided to follow :)

    • Link

      Oh man, I'm so happy to hear about your positive experiences! I hope this site can continue to remain a good place jfkdsj;ld
      I have to admit, I've only started using it recently (picked it up again with the whole FA trouble), but I'm glad I have so far. The layout is pretty nice too, I definitely agree!

    Look who's fucking kawaii beyond all kawaii things

  • Link

    This is really helpful coz even though I like the site it's pretty lonley and im in dire need of funds and unsure of gettign commissioners :P

    • Link

      Yeah that's the downside about things right now... And this is why no one ever leaves FA! It's a total catch 22, and it really needs people actually TAKING a risk with this kinda thing, and holding their breath it turns out in the end. But that's scary business, and it could really hurt if it fails. 8(
      But idk, I think it's worth it. FA doesn't deserve our business, to be frank.

  • Link

    Yesss I'm all for making Weasyl more active, it's an awesome place with good mods. I'm making this place a main gallery of mine. (Cause I barely go on DA anymore lol). And if FA keeps sucking ass...well it'll probably become just as popular as FA cause everyone will boycot them.

    • Link

      FA will always suck ass. Five+ years of nothing but ass suckery, it's P DANG CLEAR it's gonna stay that way.
      I think there is a really good opportunity of this site pulling through happening right now. It's up to us to see if it happens or not, though!

      • Link

        Yar! I hope it does pull through it would be awesome to not have to be TOTALLY reliant on shitty FA lol Cause as of now its the only place I can make money ._.;

        • Link

          That could be true too! It's a lot safer from a financial standpoint to work on gaining business in other places, too, just in case!
          (I mean the week downtime def made that pretty apparent >> )

    Thank you thank you thank you ;w; these are supergreat tips <3

    • Link

      Yes, of course! ; o; <3

    OMG you put me in there WEEPS I have nothing in my gallery yet.... BUT I WILL dksjklgljksdgjdsg you're such a sweetheart though ;w;

    • Link

      WELL YE
      First off, you are just a HUGE HUGE like colossal titan sized sweetie okay.
      Second, your art is freakin' lovely and I hope people take my word for it even if you don't have anything up yet! >W<! /hug

  • Link

    Ahaha thank you so much for making this journal. QwQ This is totally helpful! And I def plan on sharing it once I get off my phone and to a real computer.

    But I would love to just drop a couple friends names here for people to maybe see? >u>
    sweetpinkpetals and sprinkle-butt who currently has an empty gallery here due to just joining today, but people can check her FA under the same name and see her gorgeous work until she adds it here, as well. C:

    But again, thank you for making such a helpful journal and I really hope more people will come here and bring their watchers too. ;u; This site just has so much potential, and FA is just... rolling faster and faster down hill. UnU

    • Link

      Sweet, I'm glad to hear it!
      Y'know, I think I'm gonna add a section for users recommended by others too! :D

  • Link

    This is wonderful information q v q <3 So glad to see something like this in my journal box. I'd totally love to network with some of the other artists but I've had a long standing fear of talking with people who already have a ton of friends or are artists I look up to. I'm aware that a lot of peeps are probably honestly sweet and down to Earth and approachable, but I've always been intimidated to talk to other artists ; v; kinda has to do with my introversion as well... ( I have a hard time starting conversation with people that small talk with me or don't ever really talk to me )

    Maybe I could give it a chance but I don't know how many people I could actually start with x v x ;; I'd love to do art trades too...

    My biggest problem moving from FA is the commissions-base issue (as all of us artists seem to be concerned about) but I'm hoping it looks up soon (which it might). I've been on this site a while but its been rather difficult to get my stuff out, noticing I get at most like 3 views or something...But I am pretty hopeful and I'm wishing to establish some stable ground here as well v;;

    I'm also kinda curious how the RPing community is here since I've got a group Roleplay/RPG in the works. I haven't announced it yet though since I'm trying to keep the posts for daytime, while everyone is awake still (since I tend to be up all the way to 5 am PST). But I've got high hopes as well, I'm hoping my luck doesn't up and leave me again ;v;

    Anyways if you read this, thanks for bearing with my wall of text ;;

    • Link

      I can totally understand your hesitancy! But, y'know--no one has a friend limit cap or anything like that. I think everyone would like more friends. Some are a bit more hesitant to make friends right away, but others will grab on to you and tug you along with them right off the bat. It is definitely about trying to comment and connect and put yourself out there. For example, just by voicing my opinions out on FA, I have noticed I've definitely pulled in more watchers that I can TELL are from those lurking there. Commenting and being active really does help you gain noticed!
      And, honestly, no one is gonna be rude or mean or anything like that to you with what you say! (And if they are, man, I'd like to take a chunk outta them cuz nuh uh! >:U )
      It's a tough battle sometimes, but being persistent can pay off, too!

      But I feel your pain. A lot of people are deciding to be more active on weasyl, or give it priority over FA, though... so I am hopeful that it will slowly build up and get better here. @3@

      And man, that sounds pretty cool! I never got much into the RP community after Gaia days, so I can't really say much. I'm sure there would be those interested, though!

  • Link

    Thank you so much for the feature!

    I really hope this place becomes as popular as FA! I hope everyone sticks with it because it seems so welcoming so far. This journal is really helpful too!

    • Link

      Me too! >A<
      And no problem, hun! <3 <3

  • Link

    ^^ I SUPPORT ALL OF THIS

    seriously, i'v been meaning to find a second art home after leaving FA (got suspended, long story) and this place is definitely a nice inviting community that deserves to grow as much as possible, so i'm more then willing to share all this info to my friends definitely can't wait to see were this site goes

    also some awesome recommendations

      I'm glad to hear that! I mean, not the banned thing and all, but the rest eheh
      I am definitely super optimistic about all this. There is a real opportunity for this place to kick off and actually thrive. Up to use to make it happy! +O+!

    Man I love journals like these! So helpful. I kinda wanna put one up myself, but I haven't a dingdangdarn clue what to say that hasn't been said before. 0:

      You could always just share the link to this or any of the other journals shared?
      I think some of the information within these journals could definitely use some word spreading! (Ahaha, not trying to sell myself or anything, I think fancyowls' and noiserut's also have really good info worth getting out there.)

    GOOD JO GOOD I'm just going to casually link this in my journal along with Fancyowl's journal 6 v 6

      Thank you, and same!
      Let's both work hard on keeping this site thriving and being active! :D /fistpump

    Definitely interesting stuff.

    Have you guys been able to determine why the site goes down at seemingly random times? Is it user influx or...? Cause that's something that should be addressed.

      You can always check out the site's twitter: https://twitter.com/weasyl
      As far as I understand, there was a DDoS attack on the site the other day, it's still having some left-over troubles from that event.
      I've heard there were some bugs causing the error pages yesterday, too.
      The site is still in beta, of course, so it'll run into those types of things. But from my understanding, the influx hasn't been the source of any of the load time/downage problems. The staff seem pretty confident that the site is holding up with the new users and submissions. : )

    I really love this journal! No matter what your reason for coming to weasyl, I'd like to see it succeed. If I could drop a few names into the hat of people to follow?

    I'm glad that everybody is leaving the S.S. FurAngst, was a shitty place to begin with, will be a shitty place when it dies inevitably.

  • Link

    Yesss I've really only been active on here for a few days, but oh boy it's wonderful! I still need to explore the forums a bit like I wanted, to kind of get my foot in the door there a bit, but even without it Weasyl has such a nice atmosphere! This is an awesome journal, and I'll definitely be going through that recommended artist list to follow ones I haven't been following already. :P

  • Link

    Something I think that might be a good addition. Waxpost. From what I've read, it only works with FA and visual art right now.

  • Link

    I've just registered to Weasyl and thank to this journal I found lots of amazing artists already :]

  • Link

    Hello, I'd like to drop a couple names to the list if you don't mind :3

    the first is Archidaequiem Archidaequiem
    then the second is RenonVesir RenonVesir
