    We encourage users to reach out and make friends. Please obverse the following guidelines when communicating with others.

    General communication:
    thefurden.com is NOT a dating site. Please respect other member's relationship status and personal boundaries. Ask thoughtful questions. There is no need to ask "do you like furs?", every single member of FurDen is here because they like fur. Instead of asking "are you male or female?", ask "Tell me about yourself?". Do not make assumptions about other members. Everyone is here for a different reason. Learn about the other person's interests before pursuing your own.

    Private Messages (PM): When sending a private message use a subject line that summarizes what you have to say. Write in letter format and use complete sentences. Please use private messages to communicate with FurDen moderators.

    The Chat Room: The Chat Room has a lobby specifically for adult chatting. Please keep all online roleplaying, cybersex, etc, to the adult chat lobby. Do not proposition members who are not in the adult chat lobby. Violation of this rule is considered harassment (see section 2.5).
