I would say to keep it up because it's a valuable resource but remove raw or dead pictures and never upload any breeder pics without permission.

I love seeing the pelts. i love seeing what genetics make what..its really interesting well to me anyways XD but that saying... so much has happened over the last couple of months and torn everyone apart over them..sadly. 

people need to stop being jealous. i gave up on being jealous knowing i wouldnt be able to get one for ages and talked myself into thinking it is a "waste" of money.

It spices the place up a bit seeing all of the cool pelts.Yeah they are just foxes...but some really nice colours are out there and i would love to see all of them dead or alive! 

I enjoy collecting skunk pelts over fox pelts..easier to obtain and cheaper (like $45 over here...i have no idea why they are so cheap) If i had the time to go to the local fur shop (an hour away) i would have some really decent pelts...reminds me..gotta enquire about some mountable foxes and skunks.

In all honesty I LIKE them in groups, this way its all nice and organized and you see it only a few times. Instead of cramming up peoples inboxes which i think kinda started a little fire. You know what I mean? 
I dont PERSONALLY See the group as causing anything. I think it was the whole slew of mass uploads every other hour so they kept showing up for like three weeks on and off- that caused it, instead of nicely placing them in their folders here so you see it once. thats it. not 3 times for the same friggin fox. (artist upload and two group uploads, on average) so..just my thoughts

^ I agree with this.

if you are following more than one group you really do get a flood of them.

In all honesty it kind of rubbed me the wrong way (okay, it pissed me off) when I saw so many. And I dont act so quick on my frustration so I cant imagine how others dealt with it. All I wanted to do was see art, WIPS etc etc and all I saw were F*ckin foxes. xD I said a while ago, if people are getting more than 3 or 5 of them they should just make a journal for all the photos and then thats it. ONE location for all the photos and you dont make people go batshit insane when they see the same fox over and over! No one listened to me and OH WELL!!! ANd sooo many different people got foxes this year so you couldnt escape lol. 

So I think the same as you, if this group was just the ONE location where you can find foxes, then I say hell yes. Like upload to Sta.sh and then to the group if thats possible, or your SCRAPS and then to the group...but I dont know if that would be an issue.

I like to see them- like how they were before they were pelts or mounts- that's just me, I think it's kinda special.

But it really was a lot of oh so and so uploaded this picture.. then in this group then in this group and this one.. and oh my.. and I think it puts them out there for people who are anti-taxidermy alot easier and they just can't handle it you know :/

I think it would be good to just have them in one place.

Yeah, I really loved the carcass photos too!! And it helps immensely with reference, if maybe some other taxidermist is doing your mount. 

Yeah, thats the same thing I was saying when it was going on. Oh, s/he uploaded that fox. Oh now..im seeing it again. and then the next day another time. and then another group. and..oh wait they got another fox. here we go again LOL 

If we could figure out how to somehow do that, then I think that would work- and I think this group would be perfect for it if we can somehow work it out. All of a sudden people are setting rules to this now and I myself am lost- I have foxes I want to take photos of and can I not now? can I? where do I say its from?? you know...like its getting so friggin insane already.

You can post photos, you took your self. you can not post where its from. Personally we had a rule before all of you, that we do not tell where our fox come from. its a trade secret and you know what............this is the reason why.


its not that complicated. and if you feel to share your pictures of the raw fox, share through stash, share through photo bucket or what ever.


I have all my pictures in stash. I was never a fan of posting whole fox photos. because its not my picture to post.

Okay, good. Someone mentioned no photos at all which I was kinda pissed and rather confused about. 

Maybe we should bring that rule back. 

No it ain't that complicated- getting it into the group, what I had said, was the problem when I was referring to getting them into the group from stash. Thats all. you have it in for me or something lately Kanato? I've been friendly. Confused, but friendly.

I not nagging at you, I don't know who told you that, but that's just wrong.

we never lost that rule however he just a known name, nothing we can do about it besides call him something else.

you were just making it sound more complicated. even im like..........wait what's going on? I am a distributor on some groups so what pictures I post I only post them in the group I don't even want them in my gallery. the ranch foxes are my pictures but you only see them in the group where they belong. I never post in more groups unless someone requests it.

I don't see the multigroups thing, that does drive me nuts especially its something I do not approve of.

please guys dont start on here.
friendly discussion. 
Everyone is still freaking out over the whole ordeal by the looks of it and ranched foxes just seems to make it worse...maybe we should keep them hidden for a few months or something.

I am really torn here because I feel there should be a place for people to share these beautiful creatures with us but at the same time if this will continue to cause problems within the community that it should be taken down. I don't want to vote either way.

I would like to continue to see these but not at the expense of some of our friendships here.
