I'm not entirely sure that that is a good idea . . Category:Fursuiters is one thing, but I'm should we really be categorizing people by their paraphilias? I'd personally consider those to be private information by default. --GreenReaper(talk) 00:49, 12 Dec 2005 (UTC)

I also question whether we should have these. But I didn't create the initial links to them, I just followed up on the links. :-P Perhaps we should make a policy that prohibits categorizing people by their paraphilias? --Dmuth 00:53, 12 Dec 2005 (UTC)
I think this category is plain silly; next are we going to split all furs up by homosexual, bi, hetereo, etc.? I mean, I can understand pointing out significant artists (i.e. Winger is definitely relevant to hyperfur art, and should be "see also"'d) but it doesn't deserve a category. And also, it is private. I have my fetishes, but I don't want to be defined by them. I would consider it different if I was a well-known fetish artist. Tserisa 05:05, 12 Dec 2005 (UTC)
Personally, I don't think listing someone as a hyperfur is a whole lot different than identifying someone as a macrofur or microfur... in most cases, hyperness is a matter of such blatant degree that it's just a plain (and therefore categorizable) fact of the character. Also, knowing most of the names currently on the list personally, I can say with fair confidence that none of them would be in any way ashamed to be listed on a page like this. --Mtext 10:13, 28 November 2007 (UTC)
We do have a quite popular Category:Babyfurs now. Of course, most of the people on that list put the category on the articles themselves. --GreenReaper(talk) 18:38, 28 November 2007 (UTC)
However, Mtext, this category is a subcategory of people. We could replace it with Category:Hyperfur characters although my feeling is that would be similar to having a Category:Extra-fluffy tailed characters or Category:Big-eared characters, and that doesn't stike me as particularly useful. -- Sine 21:21, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Others' thoughts, a year on, about the appropriateness of this category? -- Sine 18:49, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

One vote for Delete. This is a fetish/paraphilia, and I think that kind of thing shuld be kept private. It's called a personal life for a reason. I agree with the arguments above to remove this category. --IanKeith 23:41, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
