rummyhunny posting in Califur
Everyone is being really whiney and it's annoying. At least no one mentioned anything bad about the Cabaret.

The hotel was annoying, but who goes to a con FOR THE HOTEL? You go to see friends and do stuff. If the stuff you were doing or the friends you were seeing didn't do it for you also, then I might look for things to gripe about.

You got filmed for a documentary DONE BY A FURRY. Furs need good publicity, the least you could do is help out. If seeing yourself in the video embarasses you, maybe you're in the wrong fandom.

The con staff was great. Leave them alone or YOU TRY BEING ON STAFF!

Just like a customer starts telling you how much money they spend at your store when they think they won't get what they want, people seem to do that too, as if going to 30 cons means you're so much better or deserve to have a better time at a con than say, someone who's going to a con for the first time. You act like you're a movie critic, telling us why the con was bad. I had a great time! I can't wait till next year. Some parts were better than other cons. Some were worse. Big deal. The important part of the con, the part were I got to see my friends, was better than I could've hoped.

Stop rubbing my fur the wrong way and keep your negative vibe to yourself.

underwhelming: yuck

but i thought constructive criticism helped things improve? and thats what this community is for?

sorry for "rubbing your fur the wrong way", but we're all entitled to our opinion, and furry or no, i do not want my likeness used in a documentary, period. kudos to the filmmaker for at least trying to get in touch with us regarding this.

this entry is flamebait. in before the fighting starts.

picword: yuck

I understand what everyone is saying and feeling completely but bottom line I think Rummy is trying to say is look at the glass....is it half empty or half full?

Gorn Captain: The Internet is for Gorn!
Rick Castro pretended to be a furry when he was shooting at Confurence and AC getting material for his "documentary" ten years ago. I personally witnessed him practically begging a well-known furry artist to give him an interview.

The end result ran on MTV, (as part of a series called "Sex2K") and concentrated on the sexual aspects of the fandom to the exclusion of all else.

You can't blame people for not wanting to get burned twice!

The film crew made a post and the only thing I can agree with him/her is that we should have been informed about this during registration. I would have gladly said no and may have avoided registration.

I'm not a fan of being filmed when it's only heard word of mouth and I was unaware of it until others were worried and asking around. I seriously felt like a box of Trix cereal and avoided all cameras like they were some rabid bunnies was after me.

My reason for not being filmed is because I get a crazy idea in my head thinking "these guys are gonna do anything to make a quick buck off this and I may be insulted in the process" but it sucks because I know it's not just me being paranoid.

I think about it like this, some people like being filmed and others don't like it. Whatever reason you like/dislike about it, you're completely entitled to your own opinion and safety.

I really don't think furs need good publicity. If someone who is furry wants to express who they are and make people respect the fandom, they should be a good, responsible & respectful person rather than giving people drama to laugh at.
A documentary isn't really going to do much either way unless we keep whining about things like MTV and vanity fair, the public eye really just wants another cheap spectacle. I really don't care either way personally as longa s i don't have to be involved.

The fact that a documentary was being filmed "by a furry" makes me LESS likely to want my image associated with it. Maybe I don't photograph well. maybe I have a sensitive job and I don't want my career compromised by some furry's pet project. Maybe I think their project is crap and I don't want anything to do with it. You ask permission for that shit, it's common courtesy. I'm in the right fandom, and if someone sticks a camera in my face without my permission, THEY'RE in the wrong fandom.

Apparently expecting courtesy now equals negativity?
