Welcome to Transfur!

Bug fixes and content policy changes [Posted 7/2/2015]

Hope everyone is having a fantastic start to their summer so far.

Sign in bug fix
A few of you may have encountered an error when signing into the site. We've fixed the issue, it was caused by a few of you not having email addresses on file. If you're affected, you'll be directed to a page to confirm your account details.

Content policy change
We've also revised our content policy to allow all forms of physical transformation rather than only furry, animal, and mythological. In other words, images involving human gender changes and non-animal/myth transformations are now allowed on the site. Have fun!

Random Transfur Bugs [Posted 6/28/2015]

We are currently attempting to track down several bugs on transfur due to our server move that is preventing some users from accessing their Transfur accounts or performing certain actions. We have received an unusual volume of emails about these issues, but these bugs are most elusive, so if you are having these issues we would like to hear from you. We need to know what kind of browser you were using and how you were attempting to log on as well as any actions just prior to the crash. And if you see an error message with any details, we'd love a screen capture of that as well.

Thank you,

-Transfur Staff

Site Upgrades [Posted 6/23/2015]

Hope everyone's been having a fantastic start to the summer so far. I wanted to let you know about a few changes to Transfur that have been made over the past few months.

New Server
We've moved Transfur over to a brand new server. Believe it or out, the old one ran the entire site and database with only 2 gb of ram and the equivalent of Windows Vista. It was a trusty server and served us well - but we discovered we could get something at the same host with about four times the power for a few dollars less than we were already paying.

Profile Settings
User profiles have been updated to allow for a few new options and settings. It's now possible to completely hide your profile and images from people who aren't logged in and block search engines from linking to your profile or images. I recommend stopping by the profile settings page and giving it a quick review - if you have a much older account, some of the new features (such as "image mentions" and messaging) may be disabled by default.

User Blocking
Artists can now block specific users from commenting on their images or messaging them. Artists can use the feature by clicking "Remove" next to a comment and then selecting the option to permanently block the user.

Comment Disabiling
Artists can now disable the ability for people to comment on an image. Useful if you want to upload something, but aren't quite up for feedback just yet.

New Login System
The account creation, login, and account setting portions of the site have been overhauled. It's now possible to log in by email address, and we've done a lot of cleanup behind the scenes.

Broken Stuff
Unfortunately, a few things on the site are temporarily broken. You might find that password reset emails aren't reaching you - this is because our new server's IP was previously banned (before we used it!) by many email hosts, including Microsoft and Google. We've gotten it unblocked for most servers, and we have a ticket open with Microsoft to have us unblocked there as well.

Also, accounts that are missing email addresses can't log in right now since the new site changes require an email address to be there. In a day or two we'll start redirecting these people to a page where they can update their account details before logging in. Stay tuned.

Future Changes
Life gets busy, but we have a few things in the works. The database is being overhauled to make it easier to add functionality like notifications and watch lists.

P.S. We're still proud to be advertising free. All of you are the best, thanks for helping keep this place going! 18 years and counting!

2015 Donation Drive [Posted 11/24/2014]

It's that time again! Time for Transfur's donation drive!

First off, we need to raise our operating costs for the year. To just keep the servers running that comes to $1,908 dollars (usd) and sometimes a little more. We need everyone's help to make that goal.

In the past we have offered donation art, for a minimum $5 dollar donation. We plan to be continuing with that this year as well. But this year, we want even more donated art. So we are asking our general artists and friends who want to contribute to Transfur's donation drive to consider posting a new piece explicitly for the donation drive. If you're an artist, simply check the "Donation" checkbox when you post. Donation drive art is made available to donators exclusively until after the donation drive is complete at which point the art is added into the main library.

We would like to thank all of our donators, you are the reason why Transfur has been successful for so many years, and with your help, we will be online for many years to come!

Wishing you all the best!

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.
