How long have you been in the fandom


Fresh Prince of FAF
likeeeeee 2 years.

I knew what it was but kinda brush'd it off. more specifically, I knew the stereotypes which creeped me out.

then i went on google and looked up furry.
"holy shit. This is all I had to type in..?"
bam. there you go.


it smells like dust and moon light
Uh wasn't this thread made before?

And two years.

My friends mentioned how fucked up furries in Second Life were, so I just did a bit of googling and found out about it.


Resistance is futile! If 0 ohm

I joined january 2007.


Longer than Irreverent ;)


Has No Compassion
I've known about the fandom for 7 years, but I've only been a part of it for 3 months.

I've found it when I looked up fanart.


FAF's #1 Terrorist
Wasn't there a thread on this... that I made?

PS: This one.
Silly Henri

Furries have very poor memories, and so doing things in repetition helps them with their cognition

Either that or very low patience with searching for threads or something


Q: I've been involved in the fandom for about 4 years.
Q2: A member on the VGC forums got me sucked into it after sharing similar interests and ideals.


Don't believe the mask...
I've been semi-active in the fandom since 2007 or so, but I've known about it since 2002. I used to draw and RP as an animal all of the time, but I never considered myself an actual "furry" until quite recently.

I discovered the fandom through a combination of roleplayers on neopets (back when it wasn't craptastic) who introduced me to anthropomorphism, and stumbling across furry art on Deviantart. Then I discovered Goldenwolfen, and I was absolutely enthralled with her work. I started visiting furry chat rooms on dAmn, made tons of furry friends, and realized that I was really drawn to this.

Eventually I just got sucked in completely. :F


Q: How long have you been in the fandom?
Q2: How did you find out about it?

1. I've been here for about... A month? Maybe 2?

2. First read that xkcd comic on furries, and had no idea what they were, so I looked them up. The original appeal was in fur suiting, because I am a huge convention fanatic. I pmed a furry on YouTube, and he pointed me here.

... I will hate that guy forever.


Roller Coaster Dragon
1. Between a year and 1 1/2 years

2. A friend discovered it and began drawing anthro art. I asked him what it was and he told me about the fandom. I looked into it and wasn't too interested at first. Over three years, I became more interested until I decided that I was a furry.


"Tell my wife I said 'Hello'"
1.) about 2 years, although i liked furry art long before(just hadn't heard of the fandom yet)
2.) mindlessly googling 'furry', I happened to stumble upon a flamewar(i was quite new to the internet, but knew how to post intelligent replies). i posted two replies, forgot about the account i had on that site for a year.

Moral Minority
Been a furry for 5 years, which surprisingly enough is longer than most people here, so I say you're all newfags.

Fenrir Lupus

Politically incorrect.
Long time. Years. I don't know when it started, I just wanted lycanthropy at some point... or at least a furry tail. Dunno why I liked the tail idea, but hanging something there just wouldn't cut it... it'd have to be real...

But just this year is when I found out what a furry was... prior to that I only knew about the CSI episode... [thank you, google, for allowing me to find out what it really is...]

Wasn't so much like "OMG there are others like me?" as "figures."

Stargazer Bleu

2b forgot is worse than death
Q1: Over 15~ years easy.
Q2: A old friend told me about it and give me some bulitin board numbers(thats pre internet places)
Even has some mini newsletters for a couple years.
