In response to the enforcement action, an estimated around 40,000 users migrated the site in favor of Website/ArchiveOfOurOwn, Website/FicWad, and other fanfic-hosting sites. Key reasons for the outcry were complaints that there was no notice to change the "offending" material. (It should be noted however, that as stated the [[http://www.fanfiction.net/tos/ Terms of Service agreement]] for Fanfiction.net, "[=FanFiction=].Net reserves the right to remove Content and User Submissions without prior notice.")

Other reasons for protest include the admins providing vague and unclear reasons for removal of stories, or sometimes no reason given at all. There were also a small number of cases of wrongful removal of stories which were compliant with the guidelines. Some authors who appealed the removal reported that these stories were reinstated with reviews intact on successful appeal. If the author offers to change the content of their stories so that it doesn't match the original scripts they're based on they may also be able to avoid having them taken down. The guidelines however have essentially made {{Film Fic}}s no longer allowed, while {{Twice Told Tale}}s are risky at best.

It's been noted that the more popular fandoms are split between multiple media - this can make them difficult to sort and count. The site also has a Crossovers section, so eloquently designed that you can find the people who think it's a good idea to cross ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' with ''Series/LeaveItToBeaver'' within three clicks. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer Yes, one such story does exist]].

An interesting piece of trivia: while most of the stories are in English, the Screenplays section is predominantly Indonesian, with over 35,000 of more than 37,000 stories in the language, although it's mostly [[LoopholeAbuse used to sneak in]] an awful lot of K-Pop {{Real Person Fic}}s.
