The Anthropomorphic Literature and Arts Association, which administers the annual Ursa Major Awards and the Recommended Anthropomorphic Reading List, has made two changes.

First, an 11th award category, Recommended/Best Website, for any website that does not fall into other categories, has been added, taking websites out of the non-award Miscellany category. The websites ActFur On Air, Artists Beware, The Belfry WebComics Index, Costuming, WikiFur, and Xana Creations Furcast are already recommended.

Second, Flayrah has been moved from the Website to the Magazine category.

GreenReaper, Flayrah's editor, has argued convincingly that Flayrah meets the definition of a news magazine like Time, in a website format, as Anthro (which was considered a Magazine) was a literary magazine in a website format. Flayrah has edited and dated posts of news, articles, opinion, reviews, short films, and comments from readers. Flayrah archives its past postings, and can be searched by subject on its search engine. Flayrah is now listed as a Magazine on the latest update of the Recommended List.
