FurBuy Ceases Operations, blames FurBid
Owner of FurBuy states, "We are baffled and amazed, even schocked, that the continued support of the fandom goes to a piece-mail auction system hacked together by an underage individual using a bug-ridden, featureless auction script freely available from the internet. "
You can read the rest of Jurann's (the owner of FurBuy) complaints below.
He is unclear why his system is unpopular and sees little support .
The full statemen by the owner Jurann follows:
"I would also like to take this time to explain the situation and state of the FurBuy system. For nearly a year now we have attempted to bring the furry fandom a quality, reliable, user-friendly system for the sale and purchase of furry works and other related items. We are not happy with the unfair and highly biased opinions toward our system and toward our administrators. We are also unhappy with the lack of any continual support from any users for this system and the incredible investment made to make it happen. We are baffled and amazed, even schocked, that the continued support of the fandom goes to a piece-mail auction system hacked together by an underage individual using a bug-ridden, featureless auction script freely available from the internet. We have spent over 9 months of solid development on the FurBuy system, an incredible amount of time and effort and professional skill in building this system in order to bring to the fandom the very best and most modern of features in an auction system. We have spent literally thousands upon thousands of dollars in the creation and ongoing support of this system, and even made it completely free in the end. "
"As the head administrator of FurBuy, the lead designer, and the primary investor in this system, I am personally taxed and frustrated beyond understanding in FurBuy's overall failure in the last year. I have personally invested approximately $6000 in building two powerful, professional grade servers to host FurBuy in order to provide the features and speed users demand. I have continued to spend $100 per month more than normal for internet connectivity to ensure that your access speed to FurBuy remains fast and open. I have invested the highest quality in modern web programming to be certain FurBuy is the most reliable, stable, feature-filled system possible. I am personally hurt and saddened by the large lack of support for this system and it's use. If you would like to see FurBuy continue as a system, please send your support to firstname.lastname@example.org"
