        Well, you might, but that presumes I'm not in Invisibear mode…

        Should be a great time! Safe travels. :)

    Sorry about that! Recently moved the twitter from "Kameleon" to "Chameleon". You can find me here! :) https://twitter.com/KommaChameleon

    Nice to see you on Weasyl here too and hoping the new year finds you well! :3

  • Link

    No problem, Your work's pretty great Ransom

  • Link

    Just an FYI from a new follower: You sir, are awesome. Good day.

    • Link

      It's a good day now! Thank you, Tanek!

    Happy Birthday yoooou! Have a good day <3

    It was very nice to meet you as well! Thank you for stopping by and saying hello! ^v^

  • Link

    Seriously dig that new icon. XD

    • Link

      Haha, it's so sassy! Credit goes to Grind Grind.

  • Link

  • Link

    Had to come all the way to Weasyl to say it but DANG I enjoyed reading World war Z (WAY better then the bad movie), thanks again!

    • Link

      Oh, I'm glad that you liked it! It's way different than the film. Thanks for tracking me down too, since I abandoned my FA gallery in protest.

  • Link

    Ah remember you from bigfurs, and that time you were on entervoid. ;3

  • Link

    Following you here because I respect your ability as a writer and would still like to be able to read your works.

  • Link

    Welcome!^^

  • Link

    Thanks it is a nickname I earned from having my ass kicked and not giving a shit till the guy hitting me missed and crunched his fist through a PC monitor. After that I laughed and said "You can't fuck with me I am dangerous" meaning pun but being Dane the next day everyone called me DANEgerous and it has stuck.

  • Link

    You should hear my fiddle purr.

  • Link

    Hey, thanks a bunch for the follow back!

    • Link

      Yeah, you're welcome! Your work is cool, and I'm intrigued about seeing upcoming game design.

      • Link

        Welp, I'm trying. Having help issues right now and I'm almost a one-man show. Trying to scout out more help. To many flakes. x_x

  • Link

    Hi Ransom :) sorry about the huff on FA. They're insane for their choices and unfair stuff. I'm happy to have a Weasyl too.

    • Link

      Insanity might be right. Others have claimed that mental illness (sociopathy, specifically) may legitimately be part of the cause of their behaviour. I can't say, but regardless of their reasoning, their shit shouldn't be tolerated.

      Thanks for voicing your support!

      • Link

        well whichever it is, the point stands that something is up with them admins and its affecting the site full of people who just want to display their work which they poured their effort into D:

        • Link

          It's ridiculous. The stereotype of furries being sexual deviants is a whole hell of a lot harder to disprove when the owner of the most popular furry site possesses a documented history of aiding sexual predators, and the same site's coder has his own track record of scummy behaviour and is widely thought to be a rapist. Don't forget that a convention exists around that site. The whole thing is just awful for all of us.

  • Link

    I should've watched you earlier. :3

    • Link

      Thank you so much!

      • Link

        No, thank YOU. :V

  • Link

    Always welcome! Just another refugee from FA. I'm slowly gathering everyone I used to follow. =w=

    • Link

      Welcome aboard the ship that's not simultaneously sinking and on fire.

  • Link

    Oh hey, hi how are you? Um you may not know me but i've read your thing about FA. I left FA, not completely, and i joined weasyl because of the fact that I sensed something was going to occurred. Although i did not know that the said person/group that has caused a controversy was involved with a type of rape i never heard, because i don't like to be involved in drama, i find the fact rather disturbing and how the admins don't care is quite uncomfortable and unacceptable. Any who I just wanted to greet you and give ya a kudos for standing up to the whole situation.

    • Link

      Hiring someone widely-believed to be a rapist is an incredibly foolish move, and when considering his victims are members on that site, is downright evil. Censoring criticism of this is ridiculous too. If you need a shining example of the polar opposite of a role model, it's easily found on FA's staff.

      Thanks for your encouragement. It's good to see you here on Weasyl.

  • Link

    Earned a watch from me good sir! I found my way here from your tumblr post!
    I'm quite tempted to clear my gallery and post your tumblr just so i get myself banned as well, lol. I'm by no means a big name artist there (my watcher count is only 700+ and i don't post anything anymore), so i doubt i'll be truly missed, but fuck.. Glad to have you over here on Weasyl and I look forward to seeing your work!

    • Link

      Go for it! Seven-hundred isn't much less than the number of people I had watching me on FA, but it was apparently enough for that journal to erupt in popularity. You don't have to be the most popular artist — I'm certainly not — but you're not a lone voice. We're a collective of pissed-off people who won't stand for this bullshit in our own community! Every individual who voices their disapproval helps.

      By all mean, definitely go ahead and clear your gallery. You can crosspost submissions easily with Waxpost, and transfer your watch list with SOFT (formerly hilariously named "Fender Bender"). I just suggest leaving one of these as your featured submission and/or profile image. Don't forget to clear all of your notes too, including emptying the trash folder. Make sure the journal post is the last step you take, in case you get suspended or banned for it.

      Great to have you here on Weasyl. Thank you so much for your empathy.

      • Link

        I'm actually well aware of Waxpost! I've been suggesting it to others whom i've seen with concerns about cross-posting being a major hassle :3 I've even tried using it previously, but for some reason it wasn't working for me. I may just say fuck it and just re-upload select pieces (namely character sheets and gifts)
        Had no idea about SOFT's original name though! XD That is hilarious.. I hadn't even though about deleting my notes though, but thank you for suggesting it!
        I suppose you're right though about being a collective voice on the matter. I just really hope that in the end it's worth it. Personally, for me, I'd just be happy with them removing Zaush from staff, or better yet, if he willingly stepped the fuck down, but i don't see either happening any time soon..
        I can deal with the constant broken promises of site improvement, but having the lead administration completely ignore the public outcry is unacceptable, and down right disturbing.. Add to that, the victim shaming/blaming that is being spewed by everyone, it's all beyond not ok and just the final straw of many...
        I've even read several journals from artists i truly admired saying 'Good riddance, more business for me!' in regards to all of the bigger name artists jumping ship... Which just... sickens me.. :|

        Anyway.. XD Sorry for spamming your shouts! I can keep chatting through notes if you'd prefer.

  • Link

    I am going to watch you out of principle.

    • Link

      That's noble! I hope I can keep you around with enjoyable artwork too.

  • Link

    my pleasure nwn I got banned for linking to your tumblr post about your censored journal on fa c: it sucks but eh, stuff happens. neer is still a big fat disgusting fuck though.

    • Link

      Thanks for taking one for the team, dude! It's good to see you here.

  • Link

    You're awesome. Speaking out against such a monster is amazing, and kudos to you. :)
    Have a follow, and by god that last note from you on FA to 'Neer was hilarious. XD

  • Link

    You're most certainty welcome. Keep kickin' ass man.

  • Link

    Offering you an internet high five for the choice read on the furryscumbag reblog~

    • Link

      I never turn down a high-five!

  • Link

    You're very welcome for your friend/follow

  • Link

    I wouldn't have found your gallery if it wasn't for all of this FA drama! So I guess something good came out of it.

    Rock on for leaving that puke stain on the fabric of the internet.

    • Link

      Hah! Well thank you. I'll try to upload some cool stuff and make it worth the watch.

  • Link

    Thank you for speaking up against something so reprehensible!! I appreciate your hard work, and you deserve the world!!! I will most likely post exclusively to Weasyl from now on, since FA leaves such a gross taste in my mouth now.

    Stay strong friend!

    • Link

      The attitudes of so many of FA's users are sickening. I'm really glad that so many upstanding people have decided to flock over here instead.

      • Link

        They can all stay on FA and rot in the cesspool IMO ahaha stay away from Weasyl forever and let it bloom into a beautiful flower

  • Link

    There is one (actually many) things I can be thankful for the migration is that I happen upon yet more artists I've never seen before; great gallery, and definitely worth the follow.

    • Link

      Yeah, I've found some really cool people here since the weekend!

  • Link

    Thanks so much for stopping by and following my work! I really appreciate that!

    • Link

      No problem! I try to thank everyone who watches me (though sometimes an error doesn't let the message go through), and your work really caught my eye.

      • Link

        that's great to hear :) , thanks!
        PS: really liked your journal regarding the situation on FA --thanks for laying the information out for everyone.

        • Link

          I aim for persuasive information. I'm really glad that so many people have found it helpful.

  • Link

    Glad to follow you! Hugs

    • Link

      Glad to hear it!

  • Link

    I enjoy your work and style, but I am only here as a watcher for now. So no need to thank me.

    • Link

      Too late!

  • Link

    Thank you so much for your post clarifying the whole situation. Just, seriously, thank you so much.

    • Link

      You're welcome! I'm happy to see so many people appreciating it. Most of my Tumblr has been filled with stuff about this since the weekend — I kinda miss blogging about random nonsense, haha, but this is more important.

  • Link

    You're welcome and thanks for your journals making the situation that's happening a little bit more clearer overall.

    • Link

      I'm happy to clarify things.

  • Link

    • Link

      Guess that couldn't hurt as a gauge to the community's collective outrage, though I'd be surprised if Dragoneer adhered to it. He's stuck so far up his own ass he's in danger of choking on his own head. I do want Zaush gone and banned, but then there's the greater problem of Dragoneer, himself. He's just as much of a scumbag, and needs to be ejected from that site and the fandom as hard as anyone.

  • Link

    Well I've had this sitting here since the Private Beta days. I guess it just sits here waiting for the FA ship to eventually sink.

    But hey, no problem. If I didn't fully agree with you, I wouldn't have said jack. But your journal was just choc full of 'YES'. The place is a festering pile of shit and it's not worth the trouble anymore. Hopefully this place doesn't go the same way in years to come.

    • Link

      "Yes!" is a good response! Thank you.

      Weasyl is promising so far. I hope it stays respectable too!

  • Link

    You're my new favorite for that journal AND that response!

  • Link

    Beep beep! Totally watching you here! :D

    • Link

      Beep beep, you're a Jeep! Good to see you here, Gravey. :D

  • Link

    You're very welcome - thank you for creating such wonderful art! Try and keep warm, I heard you guys were having a super cold winter! (It's almost as bad here.. -30 or -40 most days ;c; )

    • Link

      It's super cold here! I'm used to chilly winters, but it's been consistently frigid almost every day. ;w;

      • Link

        BLEGH gross. Hopefully it warms up soon!

  • Link

    Thanks dude, stay frosty. :3

  • Link

    Oh you're welcome! I saw your post on Tumblr and followed you here! :3

  • Link

    I've seen you around for a while [like one day out with Dee he was doodling things for you] but had to follow ya after this shitfest. I had. a related incident in my past making this a really sore subject, and your takedown of it all was just spectacular C:

    • Link

      Thanks! Those people are awful, and deserve to have their immorality exposed.

  • Link

    Jesus, a personalized thank you. I might just have to leave that one up. Keep on keepin' on, Ransom.

    • Link

      I've been overwhelmed with watches and commentary in the past day, but I try to let people know that I appreciate their support. I'll do my best!

  • Link

    You're very welcome, hun :3 I saw your journal before it got taken down. Keep on doing the great stuff you do!

    • Link

      Thanks! I'll do my best.

  • Link

    You are awesome, so you've earned a follow from me :) I'm glad to see someone sticking up for something they believe in, and for that thing being a good cause!

    • Link

      It was the right thing to do. Thank you for the kind words!

      • Link

        Ah no problem man! I just caught up on all the issues, myself, and even I feel like I might leave FA...not permanently, but I'm certainly moving over to Weasyl and DA more often now. I've had many issues with FA in the past as well, it's just really not a good place. At all. I wish I didn't have so many friends on it, or I WOULD leave completely...Ugh. Dragoneer disgusts me. I just read all about him on the bad-furry blog thing. I can't...Just ew.

        • Link

          Bring your friends here! People will go where the good art and their friends are.

          • Link

            Aye I intend to! MASS STAMPEDE >:D Really though, I will. FA sucks...

  • Link

    You are AWESOME, and I'm gonna follow you. <3

    • Link

      Thank you so much!

  • Link

    Fight the power man. Props to you for that journal, although it's deleted now.

    • Link

      Row row fight the power! Thanks a lot.

  • Link

    Thanks for following me back--I like your art style! I was also very impressed by your recent journal. Thanks for speaking up!

    • Link

      Thank you so much!

  • Link

    Saw your journal before it got deleted - mad props for standing up like this, a bit too harsh with some words but overall well said!

    • Link

      Under normal circumstances, I'm actually a really kind man! However, those people deserve nothing but ire from me. Regardless, I'm glad you liked what I had to say, for the most part!

  • Link

    Oh no problem, my friend! It's been too long since we spoke :)

  • Link

    nothin to it! add my name to the list of people giving you props and support for your recent journals and posts

    • Link

      Much appreciated, man!

  • Link

    Wouldn't miss following you.

  • Link

    Your journal was spot-on. Nice to see you're on Weasyl too! c:

    • Link

      Thanks! And hell yeah, I was one of the original backers. This site has a few wrinkles to iron out, but it's already better than FA.

  • Link

    Not a problem, glad someone wasn't afraid to stand up against the bullshit on FA; definitely worth following here

    • Link

      It needed to be said.

  • Link

    No problem, you have also cool stuff in your gallery. Oh, and thank you for that past journal, it made me to think in a lot of things.

  • Link

    You're welcome man, my heart and praise go out to everyone working to get people here and away from FA. I sent your journal around as much as I could before they took it down. And I've had the Tumblr version passed along to me.

    I'm glad more and more people are working to get everyone passed along.

    • Link

      It's got about a thousand likes/reblogs on Tumblr now! That's crazy-high compared to anything else I've posted, haha. I'm glad it's getting around and drawing a lot of people away from FA.

  • Link

    You're welcome.

  • Link

    No problem! I felt like supporting you because you'd made the switch from FA. Great art, hope to see more of it soon!

    • Link

      It's on the way!

  • Link

    No problem, man! :3

  • Link

    No problem, dude. You have a nice art style and your FA-related Tumblr posts are amazing. Much respect. And that last burn: OUCH. I let out an audible "Oooooh!" when I saw it. Nicely done! Haha.

    • Link

      Hahaha, that makes me really happy. :D

  • Link

    Hey anytime Ransom! Keep up the great work!

  • Link

    Most welcome!

  • Link

    Your tumblr post addressing the whole FA exodus is fantastic. Kudos for those who decide to try and make a difference!

    • Link

      Thank you for your kind words. I'm surprised, but glad that it's taken off like it has.

  • Link

    Durp de durr!

  • Link

    No problem, you're a well articulated, amazing person and even if they censored it I am glad you made that journal.

  • Link

    Welcome to weasyl tiny kitty ;D

    • Link

      Thanks, though I've been here since the beginning! Haha~

      • Link

        haha same here. but I will use it more! x3

  • Link

    I'm with you whenever you go, seriously we need more people like you willing to stand up. Too bad the douches took down your journal, though I did screenshot the entire thing. Seriously, I'm with you. +follow

    • Link

      You and many others have apparently have screenshots of the whole thing! It also has over five-hundred reblogs/likes on Tumblr now, so Dragoneer can't do much to stop it.

      I'm flattered that I've earned your respect. I'll try to keep it!

    • Link

      You and many others have apparently have screenshots of the whole thing! It also has over five-hundred reblogs/likes on Tumblr now, so Dragoneer can't do much to stop it.

      I'm flattered that I've earned your respect. I'll try to keep it!

  • Link

    ...you have MY follow as well.

    • Link

      …and my axe!

      Thank you very much.

  • Link

    Found your tumblr post. Thank you Thank You Thank You!

    • Link

      You're welcome. I aim to help!

  • Link

    You still got my support dude.

  • Link

    I think your reply to my shout got buried.

  • Link

    Well Project Pheonix is off to a good start, they've burned their own site to ashes. Now if only they could get that resurrection part down...

    • Link

      Haha, yeah. What a bunch of champions.

  • Link

    Mad props for that journal. Welcome to Weasyl :3

    • Link

      I really appreciate that! Thank you so much.

  • Link

    grrrr i left a comment saying you're awesome on your journal but it looks like it was removed.. that's just.. ugh. anyway, thanks for posting that journal, and thanks for taking a stand.

    • Link

      I was about to reply to it when the journal was deleted. I really appreciate the support!

  • Link

    I believe this link could not be more relevant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XgpxxUbk8Q

    • Link

      Ahaha, perfect.

  • Link

    they sure didn't waste any time removing your journal. Got lucky and saw it on my phone earlier, otherwise I'd have not known you left. glad to see you here though

    • Link

      It actually stayed up a lot longer than I'd anticipated. Hundreds of people have seen it already, so it's too late — it's out there.

  • Link

    Your FA journal was just removed.

    • Link

      Too little, too late.

  • Link

    Many have said similar, and though I may not have known of you beforehand, you've earned my respect.

    • Link

      I'm honoured to be receiving so much praise just for standing up for what's right.

  • Link

    I am proud of you. What an inspiration to the rest of us. Thank you for compiling all that evidence. I already linked Ferality's/Dragoneer's convversation from YiffyLeaks to my Twitter, but you assembled all the evidence into one nice easy-to-swallow pill. I will be directing people to your Tumblr post who claim they don't know anything.

    • Link

      Those people are junk and they needed to be called out. I was hoping to it would provide a thorough collection of evidence of their misdeeds, and a convincing-enough argument for others to not put up with their shitty behaviour. I really didn't expect this many people to take notice, nor did I expect all the praise that came with it. I thought maybe a handful of my friends would see, the journal would get swiftly deleted, and then the crosspost on Tumblr would blow over, but hundreds of people have commented on and liked/reblogged it. It's more than I ever thought would happen, and it is really encouraging to see so many people are as disgusted and enraged as I've been.

  • Link

    I have hella respect for what you just said on FA.

    • Link

      I'm flattered; I appreciate it.

  • Link

    your journal 10/10 thank you

    • Link

      You're welcome! I hope you found it useful or encouraging.

      • Link

        I have more than enough history with dragoneer to know exactly where you're coming from; guy is just a disaster

  • Link

    Same boat as Viral_Divinity. Found you from following a link to that awesome journal and totally gonna be following you here! :D

    • Link

      Hell yeah! Thank you very much. :D

  • Link

    I'm surprised I didn't see your art before, but glad I read what you posted through tumblr, especially glad you took the time to write it all out in such perfect wording, even though those idiots didn't deserve it(and reading the comments its obvious half of them didn't care/are still thinking it was consent and just..ugh). Im glad to have found someone who cares and takes a stand, its nice to find as another survivor.

    • Link

      The majority of the comments I've gotten regarding what I said have been positive. Maybe, collectively, people aren't as awful as we sometimes assume. Just look at everyone who's migrated here; so many people refuse to put up with their bullshit — it's way more than I had anticipated.

      Especially as a survivor, I'm really glad that you liked what I wrote.

  • Link

    Thank you for taking a stand!

  • Link

    Your journal on FA is the best one that I have read so far. It has been saved and reblogged on tumblr by many individuals and shared accounts.

    • Link

      So I've seen! I thought the thing would get looked over — normally I only get, like, a handful of notes on anything I reblog at most. That journal has hundreds so far!

      Thank you so much for the encouragement.

      • Link

        You are the kind of person a situation like this needs.

  • Link

    Saw your journal on FA - I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you so damn much. Also giving you a watch because your art is really cool! <3

    • Link

      I recognize you from the screencaps! You helped provide the ammo; I just sighted 'em and pulled the trigger. The support I've received has been really bolstering.

  • Link

    hello again, friend. here's to many more years of arting :)

    • Link

      For sure!

  • Link

    Loved your sign-off journal on FA. Nice.

    • Link

      I'm flattered, and thankful for the support I've been receiving.

  • Link

    I don't think this situation is burning a bridge, rather than running quickly from a building that's going through a controlled demolition while there are still occupants...Right..?

    • Link

      At least, referring to that picture. ;)

      • Link

        Haha, read my farewell journal and tell me I didn't burn any bridges.

        • Link

          I see nothing wrong with that! Actually, helped me get a better orientation what is even going on in that madhouse. But hey, that's politics...Or being "accountable".
