NEW MODS

Hello everyone! We’ve got some very exciting news to share with you, it’s time to Welcome our new Mods as an official part the Furvilla Staff! We’re very happy to have each and every one of them here now to continue on this journey with us. Opening the site is going to be a big job and having all hands on deck is a very important thing. Please be welcoming to all these fresh new faces when you see them around the site. They won’t be diving into any Mod work until launch but they’re getting their feet wet for now so feel free to say hello.

Beta Content Rule

Another thing before we let you go, a new rule has been added to the Global Rules section regarding Beta Content so please go and give that a read. There is also a corresponding infraction for this rule addition. Be sure you are all up to date on the Furvilla Site Rules and TOS as we head into the Site’s Grand Opening.

This new rule will be going into effect at launch:

Discussion of, reposting of forum content, or screenshots about Beta activity is strictly forbidden by the TOS. Distribution of this information only serves to incite drama and will not be permitted. Exceptions to this rule are any remade threads for sales, role plays, knowledge base & guides, and site resources.

Edit: Moving farther into this, this rule is mainly to avoid reinstating all the drama and fighting from the Beta. Signatures stating that you were a Beta tester are fine. With the new MOD team coming in, I've adjusted how I want to go forward; less infractions for things we can talk to you first on, more community interaction, which hopefully will bring the community together more. Not literally everything from Beta is banned. If you're unsure about if a signature or screenshot you have will be okay, by all means, ask a MOD; Ask me. I dont mind, and neither do they. We're here to be a part of the Community.

Restock Change

And last but not least, all Container Items and Basic Weapons/Shields have been removed from Restock and returned to their original unlimited stock status.

    • This is a great change c:

      Welcome, new mods :D!


    • @Admin-Deinmaar we need to equip our discourse gear stat


    • @Becidot
      The rule doesn't go into play until after the wipe


    • @Admin-Deinmaar If there's new users looking at this right now then launch was earlier than anticipated, which would be cool but also another fumble.
      forgive my doubts - you've given me plenty reasons to have them :)
      but I /am/ hoping all goes well. this is a decent concept, even if so far it's had fairly poor execution.
      maybe the new mod team is what was needed


    • @Becidot
      Trying to scare away new users with said drama/negativity doesn't help us progress. It's time to start anew with the knowledge we have, new faces, and a better understanding of where we want to be. It's an extremely common rule when sites are getting out of a Beta phase, for the same reason.

    • It's nice to hear about the container restock change. Super excited for the game to officially open!!


    • I'm glad that FurVilla is making an effort to remove itself from the negative environment that was harbored during beta. Let's let it go and let the new wave of members enjoy the site as it was meant to be, not how it developed during beta.

      I appreciate that staff are making the effort to talk to users first rather than hand out infractions left and right.

      I'll be honest, I haven't the slightest clue on who any of the new MODs are, but I'm sure they'll do great. It was a professional choice and I hope that it is received well.
