FurSpace was a social networking website offering an interactive, user-submitted network of friends, personal profiles, blogs, groups, images, music and videos for the furry fandom community. It was created as a way for those in the furry fandom, or possibly new to the fandom, to have a personalized profile to display their creations and share their ideas; as well as meet and keep in touch with others in the fandom. FurSpace was opened on November 13, 2008 and had grown very quickly. On December 8, 2008 FurSpace reached 1,000 registered members, and as of April 2010 had over 8,000.
History & Timeline
FurSpace was founded by Kisuka in November 2008, the website was created as a way for furries to meet and stay in touch. The domain name (FurSpace.com) was owned by Foxberance and was to be used as a community based project. Kisuka purchased the domain and started the furry social networking site, FurSpace.
On March 30, 2009 the Arcade section was released on FurSpace, this section of the website allowed users to play flash games and submit their scores to a high score board. Users could also challenge other users to try and beat their high score.
On April 14, 2009 FurSpace released the beta version of their Literature feature. This feature allowed users to post any forms of literature they have created. Users could search through the database of writings to view, rate, and comment them.
On July 17, 2009 FurSpace moved their whole website to a dedicated server due to their shared hosting provider disabling the website because it used double the amount of CPU allowed on shared hosting.
FurSpace was closed at the end of June 2012, due to limitations in the phpFox software as well as rampant spam bot issues. Their total membership count was at about 15,000 by the time the website was closed.
As of about 3/6/2015 the place holder page claiming a new site was in the works had been taken down and a Page not found notice is now being shown instead. There is still no word if there will ever be a new site. Currently there is still an owner to the domain name but no word yet if it is still the original owner.
