Greetings all,

Some may remember about a year ago, that there was a discussion about
starting a RL furry/dragon intentional community on alt.fan.dragons and
alt.lifestyle.furry. Some months on, and a change of name later, this
project is still being seriously considered. The general timeline is to
start the community in a few years. At the moment there is a mailing
list discussing the proposed community. If anyone's interested in how
things are going, and maybe joining in the discussions, we have a
website at:

Shameless plug over. :)

This sounds similar to "Heart's Dream" - is that still going?

IMHO, if the Avellana Community gets too large, you may suffer from 'furry
intertia' - i.e. you'll never get anything done because no-one will agree on
anything, and the idea will gradually crumble to the ground after a lack of
action. Uplifting, aren't I? :) Perhaps you could have a 'core' group of
trusted members - people who aren't going to run off with the money, -and-
who are prepared to actually _do_ something - who will nonetheless listen to
and possibly act upon suggestions from the 'vocal contributors'.

I know a few people who are on that list, so I asume so.

Hopefully the idea of furry inertia will be counter-acted by the fact that
this is not intended to be just a very long furry meet. There may be
adjustments to make (hence the stage 2 of all moving into a house or shared
accomadation), before any buying of land is done.
The idea of someone running off with funds has been brought up. We are
concidering a legal agreement to try and prevent it from happening. I
beleive this is on the "laws" section of the website. =)
