Tagging and development of the project "Urgent Furry" is being slowed down due to having to job search at the moment. By 'tagging' I mean I won't be able to as much read stories and put tags and descriptions as frequently as I used to, I will still be tagging, just more emphasis on sofurry and other author tags. Hopefully this is only temporarily and I will return to normal levels of /hmofa/ productivity after I get a Job. Remeber you are more than welcome to blow up my email located at the top of the masterbin and I will reply ASAP. And when I mean suggestions I mean ANYTHING. Nothing in the rentry bins are set in stone, not the tagging, nothing. If you want more milf tags, I will prioritize milf tagging, if you think the urls are clobbered I will fix them. If you want your story or name removed from the masterbin and archives I will do it (better to message me on the site you made the story so I can verify you are the author of said story). If there are other things you want to see out of the scraping and tagging say it. I'm all ears, I work more confidently knowing that people agree with the choices I make rather than shooting in the dark. I also made a new journal entry: https://www.sofurry.com/view/1858367 It's basically contains status of projects and is a longer, more concise, and more complete version of this post. - Azuhmier (aka taganon)

happy 2000
>>4853 hello fren. How are you?
>>4854 I'm ok. Just a little fucking frustrated. Shouldn't have made that deleted post really but a well. I just want the simple times back.
>>4855 Understandable, a couple weeks ago I had a massive surge of creativity from the calmness of the thread. I have since lost that creative spark and am a bit irritated at its loss.
It's hard to advertise this place on 4chan, not saying I want to move the thread here, but I just want to let as many people possible know that it exists. We can't put it in the OP, we would run serious risk of getting /hmofa/ banned, since they do not aloud links to other chans. Right now it seems to be linked in the resourc3e bin and masterbin.
>>4857 Can't we just post it after the OP?
>>4858 No, 4chan has a hard ban against linking other chans anywhere. It's the fastest way to get the general blacklisted by the mods
>>4859 If it's linked in the master bin why not have instructions on how to get to it for example: in case of meltdown follow instructions at master bin. maybe we can get around the blacklist
>>4860 see >>3891 I am in the DEN. Trying to plead our case.

Is there any way we can actually make this place more active again? Also, if you had the choice to meet and marry your waifur in exchange with forgetting everyone you know, would you do it?

>>4884 Shill it more, i guess. And to answer your other question, yeah that would be an okay trade-off
>>4866 Well I still think you're cool, whomever you may be.
>>4884 >Is there any way we can actually make this place more active again? Simply by posting. I check here a couple times a day. If I have a post I can make a meaningful reply to, I do. >if you had the choice to meet and marry your waifur in exchange with forgetting everyone you know, would you do it? No. Who would I be, at that point? A significant amount of my memories are the positive memories and negative memories of what I've done with other people, and what other people have done to me. While I also have solitary hobbies and interests, if I were to forget everyone I knew, I'd no longer be me. >>4885 >Shill it more, i guess This too.
>>4887 >Who would I be, at that point? I agree, I also wouldn't take the plunge. Here's a tougher one. Guaranteed waifur who loves you, you get to keep your memories of who you are, but you have to live in anthro world, and you can only visit your friends and family one day in a year, no other contact with anyone from your old life.
>>4888 >but you have to live in anthro world My answer depends on what that world is like. If the world is just like our real world, but with furries, I won't go. I have many good online friends in this world which I'd miss. If the world is an improvement over the real world, I would go.
>>4888 >Guaranteed waifur who loves you, But do I love her? >you get to keep your memories of who you are, Good, I guess. >but you have to live in anthro world, How will I be treated in that world? How does it functionally compare to the world I'm living in right now? How do I live in that world? What am I supposed to do in there? >and you can only visit your friends and family one day in a year, Do I have to? I have no friends and am borderline estranged from the family. >no other contact with anyone from your old life. I barely have anyone in my life anyway, much less anyone I want to keep in contact with. >>4884 >in exchange with forgetting everyone you know Do I forget that I forgot or am I aware of my choice? Do I keep my memories intact but with people shaped holes in them or do I lose everything as much as associated with other people?
>>4889 Similar to our world, but anthros are more open and amicable, so it's easier to make friends. Crime is lower, and there's much fewer problems with addiction. You still need to work to live, of course, but there's less pressure because it's easier to find a community that will help you get back on your feet if you screw up, or if something happens to you or your beloved beyond your control. >>4890 If you don't want to visit you don't have to. But, speaking from the heart here, sometimes space makes you appreciate the people that you had more.
>>4891 So, what's the actual catch here? What is the price and what exactly does it get me?
>>4892 The price is that you can't really improve any of the relationships you've left behind, nor can you form meaningful new ones. you can only maintain them or let them deteriorate. The other is that even if you make friends, you'll still be only human in a world full of anthros. Sure they'll accept you as one of their own, but they'll have no idea what it's like to be human, because their brains work differently, and they have other people around like them. Your waifur will always be by your side, but not even she can understand what it's like to be alone in that sense. And if you don't maintain those human friendships, it can become very easy to lose touch with that part of you.
>>4893 >>4892 New friendships in the human world, I mean. You can befriend anthros to your heart's content.
>>4893 >you can't really improve any of the relationships you've left behind, I'm not really improving on any of them right now. >nor can you form meaningful new ones. I'm not forming any right now. >The other is that even if you make friends, If I make what? Ha. >you'll still be only human in a world full of anthros. I'm already alone in my own world. Thus far, the outside world is for annoyances, disappointments, not belonging and other unnecessary noise. I'm tired of it. >>4894 >You can befriend anthros Well, it is a hypothetical possibility for me to have capacity to form mutually meaningful relationships, bonds even, with other xenoforms, but it is yet to be proven empirically. Especially now, with me sliding right back into what was filling my heart of hearts for years (if not decades already), bitterness and anger. Show me that beautiful world you speak of, so I can make an informed decision.
>>4895 You have issues that living in Anthroworld won't solve, the biggest one being that you're just a massive fucking downer to be around. Let your bitterness go. It doesn't do you any good to hold on to it.
>>4891 >but there's less pressure because it's easier to find a community that will help you get back on your feet if you screw up, or if something happens to you or your beloved beyond your control Yeah, I like that. Helpful communities are nice. I'd give my remaining friends a virtual smooch and be on my way to that world, then. I'd miss them and they'd miss me, but they'd understand.
>>4896 >You have issues that living in Anthroworld won't solve, Bummer. >you're just a massive fucking downer to be around Fair enough. Usually there's no one else around so it's not a problem, or at least I don't register it as such. >Let your bitterness go. And how exactly does one do that. How does one stop being 'a massive fucking downer' without embracing unbeing? It's an integral part of whatever's left of my personality construct.
>>4898 Let yourself honestly enjoy something. Work out, explore somewhere new, get out and meet people, read a book, make yourself some good food, or drink a beer. It doesn't matter what you do, the most important thing is to just let yourself feel pleasure from the action. Enjoy the simple fact that you're lucky enough to be able to think and feel at this instant in time above any other. Live in the moment. Once you've captured that, try projecting that joy on yourself. Even if your life sucks, there are always blessings hidden in the muck, and you're going to find other things, or maybe even people, that you appreciate. And if you keep doing this, and you take advantage of the opportunities that come your way, you'll find your people.
>>4899 >Work out Already do. >explore somewhere new Maybe in a video game. I go to work seven days a week, don't particularly feel like leaving my 'abode' anywhen else. >get out and meet people Nah. I've had enough of 'meeting people' during work hours, it's already far past my tolerance limit. >read a book I'm already playing games with novel worth of length of dialogues, does that qualify? >make yourself some good food Already do. >or drink a beer. Don't drink alcohol, not interested in doing so anyway. Not to mention driving everyday, don't want to catch any unnecessary noise from popomobile riders. >Live in the moment. Already do. All flow of causality is filtered through the choke point of 'now' as if no other point in time exists. >you'll find your people. I thought of /hmofa/ as 'my people' once, but there's far too much unnecessary noise for me. There's too much noise in general (pardon the pun) and it sucks out the enjoyment out of any activity or state of being I experience. I miss it when the world was quiet and empty, but alas, that was not to be. It's not 'my' world anyway, so it's not for me to decide such things. All in all, solid advice. I rate fullfilling life/joy as a state of being, would like and subscribe.
>>4900 I'm not a psychologist, but maybe thinking about some of this stuff may help you appreciate people more. How often can/do you take a day off? Are you living check to check and need the money that bad? Or are you just ultra focused on your career? Do you feel burned out at all? You don't seem to have a healthy work/life balance, so spend less time there IF that's an option. Climbing the ladder isn't worth it if you have to sell your soul to do it. You mention that the only time you really socialize is at the office. The workspace mutes people's best qualities and in some cases highlights their worst. It's where psychopaths and machiavellians thrive. Now, assuming you work with people, and not just demons and meat-husks, the best place to build friendships with coworkers is outside of work. If they're working similar weekly hours to you, they might be just as wound up and bitter as you are. That's a point of commonality. It might be cathartic for you to vent with them. If everyone at work is irredeemably shit, than limit your exposure to it as much as possible. Meet people through your interests, on the internet if you have to, but ideally in real life. Some will be insufferable, but some will be worth keeping around. And from there, plan things with them. Go to movies, concerts or conventions with them. Go with them to visit museums or eat at cool restaurants. Go to the park and kick a soccer ball or throw a frisbee around for an hour. Serious friendships take time, and serious effort to build, effort that may not see immediate payoff. Sometimes it takes people time to realize what they have. So... I know it doesn't come naturally, but be patient. Every single human being is going to irritate you in some way. Maybe they flake on plans. Maybe they brag about their money or their accomplishments. Maybe they pick fights for no reason. Maybe they have disgusting habits. Or god forbid they play armchair psychologist on the internet. Those people are the worst. But there's no strength in ignoring everyone and shutting yourself in. Human beings are social animals. We're meant to have families, and live in communities with other people we care about. So when you hate everyone around you, it's almost inevitable that you start hating yourself, too. I've been there. >I thought of /hmofa/ as 'my people' once, but there's far too much unnecessary noise for me. I have lurked on and off in the general since 2017, and I've written there since 2019. I have made ONE meaningful connection with somebody I've met there. It worked out for me, but generally speaking, 4chan porn threads are not a good place to meet friends. Meet real people first, otherwise, focus on hobby boards and threads like /diy/, /fit/ or /tg/. I wish you luck. You can make it if you try.

>>4901 First of all, I am what can be called, a certified retard. I have certain not readily apparent defficiencies and have papers for that, as well as the so called disability status. I cannot stand human interactions for any extended period of time, so I basically cannot hold any job requiring me to as much as pretend to be legally responsible well adjusted productive adult. My place of employment can be called a 'family business' since it's operated by a certain relative. I'm not choosing my 'work hours'. I do not have free days or holidays. Any extended time without supervision is, even if not explicitly, implicitly forbidden. I am assigned to a certain location and am to remain there during set hours or until allowed to leave, assisting in whatever tasks and productive efforts are ongoing. Given that the location itself pretty much amounts to a noise filled cage with an enclosure surrounded from all sides by walls of eyes, I am not exactly thrilled to fade away into the nothingness of sleep just to be forcefully awoken and forced outside just for the cycle to repeat itself. I do not receive any kind of payment or compensation other than an unspecified extra amount of unnecessary noise when and where applicable. On the other hand, I do not pay rent nor am I wanting for basic necessities. People I meet at the workplace are mostly from outside coming in, in most cases wanting things that are not there or asking questions I'm neither willing to anwser or don't have any answer to in the first place. Interactions with the coworkers are actually relatively smooth most of the time, given that we tend to keep to ourselves as we focus on the task(s) at hand and do not socialize if not necessary. Not willing to go and meet people outside of work, especially given the amount of effort it would take to comfort to the basic personal hygiene standards for casual social interactions. I live in trash bin of history in a 2.5th world country equivalent of a 'drive through state'. The single room appartment I share with a relative is not equipped with a bathroom or even a toilet. At least the toilet is accessible in the corridor between appartments, one for every floor, but there's no easy way to keep my meat unit at a presentable level without a dedicated cleaning facility, so I keep to the basic minimum required to function outside. I hate having to enter not only public space, but also public forum (since local inhabitants have a very bad habit of just lingering around and not shutting the fuck up), just to expel waste. It is heavily hinted that my meat unit's brain either does not have or has a severely impaired ability to ignore background noise, which, coupled with soaking up unnecessary noise during not only my 'work hours' but during most of the time I spend either lucid or on auto pilot, tends to result in ear aches and head aches I not only go to sleep with but also awake to. The biggest, brightest highlight of my unspecified amount of time lately was an interaction with a stray feline in a parking lot at night in the middle of nowhere. It came to me out of its own volition and initiated mutually pleasant physical interaction. It also left a lot of fur on my pants after ejoying quite a rigorous rubbing session on them, so maybe that was its goal all along and I was just there along for the ride. Point being, I actually haven't been this relaxed in unspecified amount of time between happenings. Felines are my favorite. Anyway, thanks for indulging me. Have fun with your Anthroworld. PS. >R9K prevented at least one of your files from being posted. What does that even mean?
>>4900 >I'm already playing games with novel worth of length of dialogues, does that qualify? Sorta, but not really. The important part is: are you enjoying games? That matters more than the other Anon's examples of hobbies. If you're enjoying games, that's a good thing. >There's too much noise in general Interesting. >I miss it when the world was quiet and empty, but alas, that was not to be No, it can be quiet and empty. I know this, because it's what I need to read or write. If you want quiet and empty: turn off everything with an internet connection. Computer, cell phone, whatever. If you want extreme quiet and empty: unplug everything electronic from the wall outlet. It's possible to achieve focus. If you mean literal noise, hearing protection earmuffs are really wonderful. I recommend the VS130. Last year, when I was reading more books, I'd occasionally do it outside, since sunlight has a better color than some lightbulbs. I'd go out with just a book. No phone, nothing else. And if it was loud out there, I did occasionally use my earmuffs. And with nothing but a book, I'd either read or daydream.
>>4901 >Meet people through your interests This. If you're going to meet people at all, meeting people you consider to have good taste is a plus. >Some will be insufferable, but some will be worth keeping around Exactly. When I joined my local furry communities, while the majority of people weren't impressive, the minority of people that were worth keeping around were truly wonderful, lovely people. >museums, parks Good things. Since anon 4900 says he's into games, he might perhaps also play games with others. >Serious friendships take time, and serious effort to build, effort that may not see immediate payoff. This. Finding a pleasant acquaintance definitely takes less time than forming a real friendship. I think for people who are truly compatible, however, there is some amount of immediate payoff. >But there's no strength in ignoring everyone and shutting yourself in. I disagree. Before I became very social (but still an introvert) a few years ago, I thought I was on the path to becoming a wizard. I was quite shut-in. (though I did have online friends) And there certainly are some advantages to it. If you really want to be a shut-in, you can do a lot with your hobbies and totally get rid of all the negative qualities of humans from your life. It's a life. >Human beings are social animals Agreed, as a whole. I really think most humans should socialize. I fully support anyone who decides not to, though. I think modern US society is messed up. The way most people in the US live today, in medieval Europe, would've been called being a hermit. Hermits living in their hermitages. While most humans are social animals, most adults in the US have no friends, as they live in rural or suburban locations where it takes half an hour to go anywhere interesting, and they don't know any of their neighbors. I support anyone who actually wants to be a hermit, but for most people, this is truly awful, and it's clearly having terrible mental effects on people, both normalfags and not. (And while I dislike normalfags, I don't want them to needlessly suffer) I hope society can abandon eremitism some day. >We're meant to have families I disagree. The modern nuclear family is partially an invention. >live in communities with other people we care about This, I agree with. >focus on hobby boards Blue boards truly are the best ones on 4chan, for sure. >It worked out for me, but generally speaking, 4chan porn threads are not a good place to meet friends. I don't fully agree with this though. Over the decade I've been on 4chan, I've certainly exchanged email addresses and IRC contact information with people in porn threads and had friendships for a while. And I hope /hmofa/ can be more than a porn thread to you: I'm there because I want to find inspiration to write more sci-fi. I only found /hmofa/ earlier in 2022, however. I like it so far, though.

>>4904 Dang. Your work situation sounds truly horrible. I think even jobs that are commonly considered terrible, like carrying boxes in Amazon warehouses, might be better for you. You wouldn't have to interact with people much, and at least you'd have holidays. >in a 2.5th world country I see. I guess I can't give job suggestions, then. I still think some jobs do exist, though. Like warehouses. I've lately been trying to find a solitary job simply to try to not catch COVID, and I haven't been having much luck. >I hate having to enter not only public space, but also public forum (since local inhabitants have a very bad habit of just lingering around and not shutting the fuck up), just to expel waste. Understandable. >It is heavily hinted that my meat unit's brain either does not have or has a severely impaired ability to ignore background noise, which, coupled with soaking up unnecessary noise during not only my 'work hours' but during most of the time I spend either lucid or on auto pilot, tends to result in ear aches and head aches I not only go to sleep with but also awake to. I really think you should get some earmuffs, for sure. It's not perfect, but it truly is an improvement. Depending on the muffs, you may be able to hear other peoples' voices fine enough to have conversation when required, while still having a good reduction in other noises. Normalfags consider noise to be way too acceptable. I've had people cruelly tell me too many times that I'm "sensitive" and should stop being a baby about loud noises. Now I have tinnitus. :^) >Felines are my favorite. I agree. Every day I pet a cat is a good day. I haven't pet a cat in months. I love cats. >The biggest, brightest highlight of my unspecified amount of time lately was an interaction with a stray feline in a parking lot at night in the middle of nowhere. You should go there again. You should try to find that cat again, and bring a little bit of meat or something a cat might like. You really really should find that cat again. It sounds good for you.
Feeling demoralized about posting for the thread again, not in a "creators are underappreciated" way but just seeing others accomplish what you want to do but better while never seeming to be able to get anything done in a satisfying way. Sorry for the blogposting but I don't really have anywhere else to put my thoughts out.
