Let's be more social! What's up with you? by Wahaneta

Lol honestly I'm fucking pissed right now. Someone reported my fb name. Fb gave me absolutely no option to view my page or get my things even after I submitted my ID. They've given me no wait time to pull things off my page and no time estimation for when they're gonna approve this bullshit. Meanwhile someone reported my fiance's too and it gave him 7 days to get his shit and either prove his name or close the account. How is this fair at all? His name was fake and has been changed a bunch. MINE HAS BEEN THE SAME SINCE 2008

ANYWAYS- What's up? It's weird that I can take week-long breaks from facebook with no issues but the second I'm forced off of it I'm going crazy xD So let's chat!

Let's be more social! What's up with you?

    everyone I know is having that problem even ones who its their real name just someone is a troll, and of course FB is a POS and takes their sweet time.
    But times like that you just need a cookie and sit back, relax and let the little dildos get whats coming to them.

    • Link

      Yea, it is my real name and my real name is weird. I just think it's BS that my fiance got reported too but he can still log on. This is really the only thing that bothers me about FB, not letting us have a separate display name and well no penalty for people who falsely report everything.

      • Link

        It is stupid I agree and no matter how many people say this the people with FB are stupid and wont fix it especially if your using your real name seriously WTF my name is my name

  • Link

    The workings of that site are so bizarre sometimes. I wish there'd eventually be a new platform that's coded and implemented in a better way!

    • Link

      Yea I have few quarrels with the site really but when they do something wrong they do it hella wrong :/

  • Link

    My friend keeps being reported on facebook its saying his names suspicious then deletes him all the time, stupid thing. but i have been good, been to London for a few days

    • Link

      Oh gosh I hope they don't just delete it I would lose so many old photos ;-;
      London would be exciting! But I've never even left the US before xD
      I hope it was fun for you!

      • Link

        hehe it was thank you and had a lovely 9 year old clinging to my arm the whole time hehehe

  • Link

    FB is terrible. The whole reporting names thing is so transphobic

    • Link

      I don't think they meant to be against any one group in particular especially since it works against everyone. It's definitely a bad idea all around.

      • Link

        Not against any one thing in particular, no. But the principle is still very transphobic. I can understand if they took action against someone impersonating another, but they should never force a trans person to use their given name.

  • Link

    Lol Facebook.
    They've not come after me yet, thankfully, but still.

  • Link

    Yeaaah there's a reason I don't have an account there.

    As for what's up! I am working on getting my workshop going and practicing 3d modeling so I can print moulds for costume parts!

    • Link

      Oh exciting! I've wanted to get into 3d printing but I think itd take me way too long in comparison to just sculpting and casting like I usually do. That and I can't afford a 3d printer xD
      But thats so cool though! Id love to see what you make ^^

  • Link

    I'm currently opening cheap into artist commissions for October, and anyone that spreads the journal gets a doodle.

    Sucks about FB =/

    • Link

      Oh I'd be interested in a slot depending on the themes. Are you going to announce themes and set peices or just make them pwyw and fill them up before starting without announcing themes?

      • Link

        I think I'll do a roulette thing and pull a list of themes off deviantart or tumblr. Still ironing out the details. = u =

  • Link

    I was animating but now I don't really know what I am doing :X

  • Link

    Before I was a fur, everyone called me Squirrel (because I'm crazy like one lol). So my on-line presents was either Squirrel or in the rare occasion, my given name. My evil psycho stalker ex-wife wouldn't leave me alone. I discovered the fandom and changed my on-line name to match my fursona. I never heard from her again... until by accident uploaded my AnthroCon video to my old YouTube thing because it was too big for Vimeo (I even changed that to get away from her). At the end of the video (in the credits) I included my name. HUGE MISTAKE because Google revealed my where abouts on Weasyl, Twitter, Vimeo, FurAffinity, FaceBook... ALL OF THE THINGS. She was the troll for me, reporting me to all of the sites that would want me to prove my real name... So in regards to FaceBook, I gave them my real name... A copy of a driver's license that says Inu Y. Okami (read that again)... A COPY OF "A" LICENSE THAT SAYS INU "MIDDLE INITIAL-Y" OKAMI lmao... FaceBook was happy and let me back in... But they locked me out with no options as well. It kinda sucked because that's how I keep track of what meets happen in the area, who's hosting and where I'm supposed to be, etc. People suck and so do all of the social sites that I need to be on because everyone has forgotten what a phone's original purpose was (voice calls, not jabbing their thumbs into them). Call me old school, I'll grin proudly because that's EXACTLY what I am... Proud to be a grey muzzle lol.

    • Link

      Ugh it's crazies like that making the FB name rule ridiculous. Thankfully they just let me back on in a little over 24 hours. Still pissed about it but what am I gonna do :U

  • Link

    How dumb.

  • Link

    Man, facebook people are too report happy. oh look a picture of your dog, report. you said words to me, report,
    but you know when there is bits flying all over a photo. facebook is like, naw that pic is good,

    • Link

      Yup. My pictures get reported randomly(yet always right after I piss someone off)
      Pissbabies who can't accept people who don't agree with them love reporting everything

  • Link

    This is random and you probably don't care but im actually doing the best ive ever done in years! I have crippling school anxiety that has kept me in and out of school for five years. Just these past month ive attended more days then in the last 3 years! it feels like my life is finally coming together and i couldn't be happier

    • Link

      Well that is just awesome :D
      Grats, I hope you keep it up ^^

  • Link

    Oh lord... I've never had Facebook and never will. I know any site has its issues but Facebook makes me cringe :/ Aside from the fact that there are way too many people on it that I just don't want back in my life or getting into my business >.>

    But anyways! What's up? Well, I'm about to make a submission about my idea for crocheted doll commissions, which I would be really excited to do if I get any interest! (As I sit here crocheting a tiny Yoda XD)
    And a little later I'll be going to see the live-action Attack on Titan movie with a friend and I am super excited for that ^^

    • Link

      Oh those look like they will be super cute :D I'd love to see the first one when it's made!
      The attack on titan movie is pretty awesome- I lost all interest in the show when they went from ACTION ACTION ACTION to dramadramadramaaaaa but the movie is basically the first couple episodes so works for me xD

  • Link

    That sucks about FB.
    Me, I'm recovering from a difficult fursuit commission by making a nice, simple, fox suit XD

    • Link

      It's always nice to have a simple commission after a difficult one! I know the partial I just finished I blew right through the thing after being stumped on that suit of wolf armor a few times xD IT WAS SO FULFILLING THOUGH

  • Link

    Since I'm not sure if you were able to get your account back, I'll leave that topic alone LOL Just know that I know those feels!

    But that aside, how have you been? I hope to hear that everything else in your life had been running smoothly. I just had a crazy weekend at Anime Weekend Atlanta lol After that weekend, I plan on sticking to furry cons.

    • Link

      Yessss I finally got it back and my moment of crazily refreshing my email all day is over.(I'm a lunatic)
      I've been good though! My fiance and I took a vacation in Orlando(My first ever!) and spent the week afterwords being terribly sick forcing me to take commission work super slow but I'm finally getting back on track :D
      Really? I always go to Youmacon in Michigan and besides it being super packed and expensive I have a lot more fun there than I do at fur cons. Probably because it's easier to show off costumes though xD
      Did you have a terrible time? Or are the Weeaboos just a bit too much?

      • Link

        It could've been more fun if I were more up to date on my anime XD I was so far behind lolol My favorite part of it was the artist alley and dealers since that felt familiar and had a ton of cool stuff. I'm more furry than otaku so it wasn't as exciting. I can't wait for MFF now lol

  • Link

    I have been banned (by my parents) from Facebook for a while, so I assume this came in since I have been go. But I have heard of this doing. Is odd and I do not understand the why they decide immediate or given days to 'clear out'.

    I am okay, trying to make clearing out of materials and things I do not need. While finishing work for projects. Have taken interest in knitting and painting again.

    • Link

      Haha I'm always trying to clear things out for space. It's a never ending job it seems xD so I hope you have better luck with it than myself ;P
      Facebook can be really weird with it's censorship rules so maybe it's best your parents keep you from it for awhile. At least until you're old enough to curse at the top of your lungs at your computer without consequences from parents.

  • Link

    Both annoyed and amused with someone on FA, as are many others so at least I'm not alone.

    • Link

      Well that's never a new thing ;P
      Who did what this time?

      • Link

        Oh of course. XD Long story as short as I can get it....
        Not going to throw out names, but basically the first party didn't know that it was unacceptable to roughly trace 18+ human photos to get a quick basic pose for a YCH (they had every intention of actually drawing the scene once they started, but that's still not a good idea), but rather than simply saying something like "Hey that looks traced, you shouldn't do that it can get you into trouble" or something along those lines that would, you know, handle the situation like a sensible adult, a fairly well known artist came in and started rudely harassing and insulting the first. They then proceeded to write 'vague' journal and Tumblr posts about the situation. Then when people looked into it what had happened a large portion of her own watchers stepped in and said that her behavior was totally uncalled for and childish, resulting in her rage blocking more than ten of her own followers while the first party politely did a stream where they re-drew the poses by hand and apologized for what they did.

        • Link

          Sheesh. Furries have such a hard on for witch hunts. There are some crazy "beware" groups on fb that don't even require proof of tracing beforw they sic members on people posted there.
          Most of the people being attacked over a trace are children that just don't understand.
          I've always been a believer of quietly confronting those who are doing wrong and most of the time? Lesson learned and they stop. Most people just need to be confronted and they're too embarassed to do it again.

          • Link

            Exactly. I just don't understand the point of turning something that could have been dealt with in a calm and civil manner into a massive hunk of drama. Or acting like a brat to your own watchers when they point out that you did something wrong too and then refusing to take accountability for your own bad behavior.

            • Link

              Because entitled whiny pissbabies. Thankfully not everyone is a total brat!

              • Link

                And the white knights.... Shudders

  • Link

    I've been hit by that too, but haven't gone to make a new account just yet. It's irritating as fuck.

    In other news, I slashed my thumb open at work yesterday, right by the base knuckle. Should probably have gone to get a few stitches, but I just picked up some butterflies to keep it closed.

    • Link

      Oh no! D:

    • Link

      Thankfully I got back into mine they just took their time getting back to me.
      I hope your thumb is doing better! I'm always wounded in one spot or another with making suits but on your hands is the worst because you're always working with them -_-;

  • Link

    I think it's fucking ridiculous what FB is doing in regards to names on there. What if someone was a victim of a rape? Assault? Witness to a crime? What if they just want their account and want to hide from those that attacked them? OOOH NO YOU MUST USE REAL NAME. Go fuck yourself, FB. The only reason I use that site is to keep in touch with my friends and family back home (recently moved out of state). Additionally, so many people don't use their real names online, so who really gives a shit if your FB name doesn't match your real name. I'm sorry you're having to deal with Fuckerberg's bullshit.

    And I guess I'm decent. My dog passed away on the 28th of last month, so I'm still upset about that. She had turned 15 earlier in the month, but sadly developed a tumor and ultimately it was decided that it was for the best that she be put to sleep... She was my very best friend.. I grew up right alongside her.. I grew from a child, to a teen, to and adult...right along side her.. Her name is Stella, and she was my 'stinky baby'. She was a black lab/beagle, and boy did she have that beagle howl! She had those big ol' beagle ears too, which looked so cute on her labrador long face :3 This is her a few years ago, taken on my DSi: https://scontent-ord1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xat1/v/t1.0-9/12096211_10200956995843284_8517519362830488678_n.jpg?oh=bcadb0cec9cd5e2332c770ca6e0da0e2&oe=56A71CB3

      Oh gosh what a cutie <3 I'm sorry to hear she passed but at least 15 is a good age for a pup. I'm sure she was very happy growing up with you :3

      • Link

        Oh she was a delight <3 Super rambunctious when she was younger, and as she aged, I'd let her hog my bed, so much so that she made her own grease stain on my blankets (much to my dad's irritation, which I have 0 shits about because THE BABY SLEEPS ON THE BED). We really never had her out on a tie when she was older, as we lived a bit out of the way. We'd go out exploring in the woods together, and she was always nearby. Even in her old age, up until I moved out of state in July, we'd go out in the bush. She would stray a little more, as she had become deaf and couldn't as easily "keep an eye" on where I was, but she never really would wander off. She was my side kick to adventure... I'm really gonna miss her.
