Newest members box?

Published: 16/04/2017 22:43

What has happened to the newest members box that used to be in the top right corner? All I can see now is "Discover something new" showing me a load of stuff I'm not interested it. Is this a site fault or a poorly thought out improvement? The newest member feature was one of the best features of furiffic as it allowed you to check and see if anyone you knew had joined up, without it I don't know how you are meant to search for new people. I do hope they haven't done a furaffinity and removed this useful feature in favour of more advertising space designed to make more money.


EDIT.

Looks like they moved it to the button on the right hand side of the search bar. All this so they could cram more pointless adverts on the main page? Now I'll make it a point never to open one or buy anything on this site, its the only way they'll stop cheapening the site like this. Like people use AD blocker on FA for the same reason.

I bet it was in favor of ads & people wonder why I hate ads so much*

The sort of stunt I would expect from furaffinity, sadly it looks like one of furiffic's best features may be gone.

I wonder why the only change is always bad change?

Ads are horrible things they was fine in moderation but it's out of hand now TV is the worst with the f*cking things*

I agree, they only cheapen the site when they try and ram too many in like they have done here.

Everyone needs to cut it with the ads we don't watch TV for ads we don't listen to the radio for ads we don't come to these sites for ads we come to enjoy the show song or art*

Alright, I'm going to go out of mod form for just a little bit. 

Firstly, the ads were moved from many suggestions from advertisers that they should be.  One day Bun is implementing a feature that turns off all adverts, anyway,  so don't worry too much about that. I can understand that it's annoying to need to add in more steps to get to see it, even I was peeved at first. 

Secondly, while it may seem unprofessional to say, Bun has worked so hard and put so much time, effort and her own money into the site. Seriously. She rarely takes a break. I lose so many cuddles! ;p The fact is, websites like these don't pay for themselves.

We dislike ads as much as the next,  hence why the no-ad mode is in the pipeline,  but they are a needed thing to keep the site up.  No-ad mode will probably put the members bar back up there, it may just take a little while for it to come out. If you can bear with it for a little while, you'll have your members bar back soon enough:) 

Now, back to impartial moderation mode, Hah!

Thank you for explaining this.
