Right now, FA is the only site you can import submissions from. What if SoFurry was supported too? Especially for stories.
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!
I would love this feature. As I originally moved from FA, to SF several months ago. So all my work is now there, and I'm slowly moving my web series over to here.
I would really love the ability to import stories from SoFurry, provided that all my formatting such as italics, font, spacing, ect. are carried over. The current story editor/uploader for the Furry Network uses its own markup code, and no one wants to paste their story into the editor only to find the formatting didn't carry over and they must reformat their stories with different markup code.
On SoFurry, Stories can be copied verbatim from Google Docs and pasted into the story submission box, while retaining all the formatting. I can't express how much I love that feature. I just copy, paste, and submit. I would love to have a similar feature on FN, but I would also like being able to import from SF, just as long as I don't lose my formatting.
I'm sure that there would be plenty of users would who utilize this feature.
This would be fantastic, as I've used SF almost exclusively since I made my account over there. and I'd like the option to be able to pull all the submissions I've put up there at once!
This is probably especially useful for authors. Since SoFurry handles all stories natively (unlike FA supporting a few file formats and Weasyl allowing Google Document embedding) it may be easier to import content from there than trying to adapt how those other sites handle text uploads to the format supported on FN.
In order for this to work effectively, the character limit for stories will need to be upped first. >65000 character stories aren't uncommon on SoFurry.
