Currently FA is the only site you can import content from. It'd be awesome if Weasyl was supported too!

Right now, Weasyl and SoFurry both are neck and neck with 18 votes apiece! There's a lot of chunky features with more votes than these; let's see if the community can pick a winner and see if these features get more interest / votes from the community!

If importing from Weasyl is implemented, Furry Network will need to account for submissions that link to external media. Weasyl currently allows multimedia submissions to embed media from Bandcamp, Soundcloud, Vimeo, Vine, YouTube, and Sketchfab (3D models and scenes).

I decided to move my entire gallery to Weasyl after the IMVU buyout. There are now only a handful of pieces I keep on FA.

I would greatly appreciate a Weasyl importer, so I can bring the bulk of my work to here as well.

Sucks that I already manually imported everything from Weasyl. :P

You should however make the import tool translate links in descriptions to the proper user here. If a user has connected their accounts with this site, like say Silvolf has connected her FA account on FN and I imported from FA to get artwork that mentions (c) :linksilvolf: or whatever, it should translate that :linksilvolf: into whatever this site uses to display that link. I know it's not -exactly- the place to suggest this but, kinda related.
