Welcome to Transfur!

Special Announcement [Posted 5/4/2014]

With great pride, and gleeful excitement (and fear), I have the honor of announcing that my Fiancé has published her 1st book, a Sci-Fi novel called Exile’s Return. Artists and members will know her as Snowy Hare, one of our most valued administrators and moderators.

Her book is targeted at mainstream Science Fiction, but there is TF in her universe and it is the introduction of that capability into society that puts many of the book’s themes into motion.

I’ve read the book 3 times now and I’m still finding things I didn’t realize first time through. It’s been a hell of a roller coaster each time. I highly recommend it. And not just because I’m due to marry her in August.

You can find the book on Smashwords or on Amazon.

About the book:

Hatred is as old as mankind. Some would say it was in our DNA, that’s why I changed mine…

I was an Astrogator on the UEAS Danube when first contact happened. It was a routine deep space mission, until our new friends set us adrift and then told us they meant no harm. They called themselves the Mendians. If they had wanted to, they could have flattened the human race in a day, but instead they offered access to a Jump Gate network that made travel between stars take only days instead of decades. All they asked in return was that we made another technology available to the public, their Path of the Other.

It was a landmark in human history. For the first time people were not bound by their genetics, and gradually people began to shift. Some did it for spiritual reasons, others to escape the clutches of disease or age, but gradually a new segment of society arose, one that was met with suspicion and the ancient human tradition of hate.

To be honest I had made my mind up to leave even before I tanked. I left Earth and ran to the farthest out-of-the-way planet I could, Centioc One. On its alien shores I surrendered the last of my humanity, and almost lost my self until, one day, a human by the name of Charlie Stevens arrived on my planet of exile.

TransFUR funded for 2014! [Posted 1/8/2014]

Thanks to the generosity of our visitors we have once again collected enough money to fund Transfur for an entire year. From all of us at Transfur, thank you for your tireless efforts to keep us online!

However, this is not the end of our 2014 donation drive! We are continuing our push to fund the first Transfur Mobile App! We are leaving the counter up, and calling for still, more donations to fund the development of an android and iOS app. The licenses fees are prohibitively expensive to acquire on our own, and so once again, we turn to you, our loyal community to help us fund an app that will only increase access and exposure for Transfur.

We are not simply holding out our hats. Plans are on the horizon to bring in even more donation art for all of our donators, including a special feature presentation that will be unveiled soon, in addition to voting rights and early beta access from those that donate at least 50 or 100 dollars respectively.

Thank you all for your continued support and vision!

New Art for Donators! [Posted 1/1/2014]

Hey Guys! The donation drive is ongoing, and we have almost raised enough to cover Transfur for the year. Starting off the New Year we have some new bonus art for all you donators from the amazing Blueberry Snow! Be sure to check it out!

Happy 2014 TransFUR!!! [Posted 12/26/2013]

Happy New Year!!!

Things are going great for the donation drive, but we still have more to go. We need to at least raise enough to keep Transfur operating for the year. And we're getting pretty close, so that looks good. However, we are still a long way off from reaching the goal to do a mobile app.

Even if there is not enough support for a Mobile app, we'll try to do something here or there where possible. But ultimately the cost we're asking for is to cover software licenses where it wouldn't be legal for us to "cheat" out of that. None of the money will go to paying the developers or anyone else like that. We get paid in love from you enjoying the site.

There are other worthy apps out there we'd like to work with someday (if they make it). For example there's a new Indie project out there trying to make waves called FaceRig. Check it out on Indiegogo here.

We have more donation art coming so stand by all you donators. We appreaciate you more than you know. Without you TransFUR wouldn't even be alive today. Thank you.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!
