It should be noted that it was once banned by plenty of web restriction software (blue coat etc.) for its pornographic content, but nowadays many of the same software allows its content. Keep in mind that many of those sites have harsher rules now. A long time web restriction software still allowed people to see the white supremacist hub stormfront. Now it is not anymore the case.

* {{Vaporware}}: Even the most trivial of features have been "in development" for nearly a decade. This includes "gallery folders" and content filters. These features will either be a "Priority" for the development team (Really just one guy from {{Moldova}}) or "On hold", depending on who and when you ask.

How you feel about the site depends on how you feel about the furry fandom: It can be a nice place to look at anthro art -- or it could be a very bad case of {{Rule 34}} gone wild.

* HighTurnoverRate: The site is chronically understaffed. This causes trouble tickets to pile up, which leads to staff getting burnt out and quitting, causing the cycle to repeat. Occasionally staffers will quit and drop an {{Internal Reveal}} of {{Executive Meddling}} regarding the site's administrators, the general contents of which {{EverybodyKnewAlready}}.
** This was the case in August 2015, when [[https://forums.vivisector.org/index.php?topic=624.msg9071#msg9071 every single moderator on the site's forums resigned]] over the course of two days.

FA does its best to compete against Website/DeviantArt, at least as far as giving an artistic outlet to the furry community. Both DA and FA allow a broad range of content (read: [[smut]]), with the difference that DA allows full frontal human nudity, and frowns on the more kinky furry stuff while FA allows the latter and bans the former. Due to these differing restrictions, FA is traditionally a furry's first stop for new furry artwork. Because of its sheer size, it has become the ''de facto'' FriendingNetwork for most furries as well.

'''[[http://www.furaffinity.net/ FurAffinity]]''' is an art-based website devoted to all things [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom furry and anthro]], run by Sean "Dragoneer" Piche. One is bound to find a wide variety of creative works on FA, ranging from music to stories to art and photography; while it's not unheard of to find non-furry-centric work on the site, the vast majority of submissions to the site are centered around anthropomorphic/furry characters.

FA does its best to compete against Website/DeviantArt, at least as far as giving an artistic outlet to the furry community. Unlike DA, FA allows a much broader range of content (read: [[{{Yiff}} smut]]), and since there's a perceived bias against furry artists on other art sites (DA included), FA is traditionally a furry's first stop for new furry artwork. Because of its sheer size, it has become the ''de facto'' FriendingNetwork for most furries as well.
