FURiends and Email Verification

Hey there! We are proud to announce that FurBuy is now also partnered with FURiends, and they've done a wonderful job of incorporating our auction listings (non-adult only, of course!) into their website. Anyone who has never been to their site should check it out, it's a great place to make a space for yourself and find new friends! And if you are a member of FURiends, you can add your FURiends name to your profile under your My Account - Prefs page and a pawprint will appear by your name in our auction listings.

Also, very important news for anyone who uses the site:

Ever since our popularity exploded, we've had a few people lately signing up for our site with fake information and trying to place bids. So far we've been managing this manually to keep spammers and potential troublemakers away from the real bidders and sellers, but we're working towards making sure this doesn't happen in the future. We've also had some accounts with invalid emails, that aren't getting their bid notifications (and thus won't be getting their outbid or win emails either!) So to help out with this, we will be implementing an email verification system for new accounts in the very near future.

What this means:

If you have been using our site and have feedback on your account, this will not affect you at all. Your account is good, and we know that from experience. Keep using the site, and let us know if there's anything we can improve, and thank you for staying with us! (You might want to check your email address, just in case, and make sure it's up to date, but we're not requiring it of you. )

If you have been using the site, but have no feedback on your account, we will require you verify your email address once the system is in place. We will do our best to make sure you are aware of when it goes into effect, and will make it as easy and simple for you as possible so you can get back to enjoying the site. We just want to make sure we can contact you, that you are getting the bid/outbid/win notifications, and that buyers or sellers can reach you about auction transactions.

We pride ourselves in having an auction site that everyone can enjoy and we want to make it as safe and worry-free as possible. And as always, if you have any questions or suggestions, let us know!
