Furbid.ws for sale?
When people are bored, they may begin to dig through old bookmarks, go through old emails, and rustle through things with a slight sense of nostalgia. This is what brought about the discovery that the domain Furbid.ws was for sale.
Older furries may have used furry auction sites such as this site from years ago. Furries used auction sites almost exclusively for many years before many found that announcing commissions on FurAffinity got noticed more than an auction. FurBid was founded in 1999 when it was owned and run by Aatheus.
No information on why it is being sold is available, though WikiFur suggests it stopped its run December 5 of last year.
I loved that site. It gives me nostalgia to think of it. It makes me sad to see it probably finally fade in to obscurity or turn in to a redirect for something else.
Another sad thing that makes me wonder where have all the furries gone is the recent lack of furries in Second Life. I remember there were a lot of furry themed places and clubs, and now they appear to be gone as well.
Do you use auction sites? Do you play Second Life?
There are just so many places and sites that are gone now. It is the end of an era and possibly the dawn of a new one. Time can only tell.
