What does it mean that an area is fursuit friendly? In part it means that we have headless lounge nearby and that you are likely to find help from a handler or attendee if you need some quick help. Those in the area should generally know fursuit etiquette (excluding the public).
What does it mean that an area is inflatable friendly? It means that the area is reserved for private use. Inflatables are prone to being badly damaged or destroyed outright by singular acts (such as jumping on them), the general public seems less cognizant of this than furries. Inflatable etiquette is not common even among furries, but is more prevalent. Inflatable friendly areas also have access to electricity and Airheads Anonymous (or toysitters) who will direct setup and packout of the toys.
