I think they should put posts back in the "what's new" section until they get journals up and running. Or just put posts under the Journals heading because let's be honest that's what they are.
The markup format used is called Markdown, and is rather simplistic. It's useful to learn since it's used by the various Wiki systems, Weasyl, Reddit, and a smattering of other sites. Weasyl's super nice in that their system actually has a preview so sometimes I'll load it up real quick just to make sure my post is formatted correctly when I need to post somewhere that can't be bothered with a preview system *cough*reddit*cough*
An easy quickfix is to fire off the scroll event function when the page loads too, so that it can check if the bottom of the page is on screen when the page loads.
I agree, for me "favorite" sounds like a quiet "this is neat" that doesn't necessarily mean I'm embarrassed to let the world know I like it but don't want to broadcast whereas "promote" seems more like "hey everyone check out this awesome thing" that I want everyone to see.
As a quality snob, and knowing some artists are silly enough to not keep original files, in my opinion JPEG compression is probably the worst kind for distribution. PNG is 100% lossless, and for a number of artwork styles tends to be comparable in filesize unless you sacrifice quality. JPEG at any quality less than "pretty dang high" tends to get compression artifacts around sharp transitions (which there are a lot of in linework and other high contrast images) and really wasn't meant for artificial images (the P stands for "Photographic" after all).
Anything that helps reduce PayPal's stranglehold on the simple internet payment market is good in my book!
On the https://beta.furrynetwork.com main page, under the (admittedly excessively large) header, there's a box to put your email address in to request a key.
I should mention I'm using Chrome and haven't tried in FF or any other browser yet.
US Copyright Law states that unless the artist explicitly signs over copyrights, they retain them even if paid to create the image. Most furry artists don't sign over the rights, so by default they are well within their rights to ask you to take down an image, even if you paid them to make it for you. Many people point to some "work for hire" clause and say that paying them means they hired them, but this is incorrect unless you've specifically made them an employee and are paying them a daily wage, with all the business ownership tax fun that goes with it. The alternative is contracted work, in which case one would need to ensure the contract includes verbage that specifically assigns copyright of the work to the person.
I agree, 1000px is a lot of scrolling just to get to the actual content.
