Like many here, I joined because it was a SFW place where I could interact with others in the fandom. I lurked around the site for a few days before I joined, and everybody seemed so nice! I’m glad I’m part of this community  :pawheart:

Brevity is the soul of wit (and signatures), and thus, I will be keeping this on the short side, except I guess it's kind of long now....

coz I felt like it

Just wanted a place to talk to other furries that weren't creepy old guys or really toxic I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


This is the perfect place and I wouldn't settle for anywhere else!  :pawheart:

Because Fur Affinity forums was definitely not very welcoming to young teens.

Also to be able to make friends and get more immersed into the furry fandom.

Back in 2014, I was just an awkward kid with a moderate interest in the furry fandom who wanted to meet some like minded people. This site helped me so much then, and I was accepted in a very caring and wonderful community.

I was just looking for tutorials on how to draw furries (still haven't learned haha) and I noticed it was a site designed meant for teens, I was 16 at the time and wanting to get more involved in the fandom so signed up

I joined because I'm really lonely, and just wanted to make some friends in the community :)

I think I originally found it through looking something up online, in which a topic here came up in the search results. I then started browsing the site because it looked interesting, and joined because I liked the atmosphere. (Most forums scared me because they were really big, I was afraid of doing anything wrong because the moderators seemed strict, things weren’t “lowkey” enough, etc.) I eventually stayed because the community here was (and continues to be) awesome!

I felt very curious about the fandom when I joined and this felt like the best place to learn.

Seriously, wolverines are super uncommon fursonas.

Maybe I should change my fursona to a mitochondrion?
