After a lot of pondering I've decided I WILL NOT BE LEAVING FA but I will still mantain my Weasyl updated in parallel.
Although I am utterly DISGUSTED with the admins and their hypocrisy, I've realized my commission audience is here and my projects this year require much funding, so I'm afraid I cannot simply jump ship.
I'm also hoping the situation fixes itself because I really love the people here. I've always been one to defend FA, it's shitty design, it's awful programming, it's horrendous mod force. But I like it here, the people are friendly, the commissions are good.
Also it is clear that Weasyl still needs some ironing around the edges, things like bulk uploader, better settings for managing submissions, etc. But it has potential and I'll stay there as well, ad another gallery apart from this and my DA which is mostly ignored because I don't draw KAWAII ANIMUUU or steal art.
That being said, I'm very disappointed in plenty of "popufurs" (especially sheppymomma oh my god) who were very quick to dismiss this rather serious incident as just more furry drama. I'd like to see if it had affected them if they would've been so quiet and dismissive about it.
But in short, I'm staying here, opening up commissions soon, I'll need the money to bring my partner to live with me and move out.
Have a good day, and my heart goes to those affected by the incident and the exodus.
