|Furs For Christ|
|Launch date|| January 2005 - October 2011 (as "Furrs Fur Christ")
Furrs Fur Christ was created by Razi, who hosts the site herself, in 2005. FFC slowly and steadily grew in membership, briefly hosting an art gallery.
In October 2011, FFC moved to a new domain, FursForChrist.com, with a new name, forum, and image gallery as well as social networking capabilities. During the move, some of the moderators and leadership were shuffled, with the existing forum remaining open as an archive until the present date. The new forum was plagued with issues during the upgrade due to various technical limitations imposed by the social software. A second move was then planned to move to a more stable software. In February 2012, administrators Razi, Aidyn, Firekeeper, and Eagle's Flight stepped down from their posts, with Ian the Gecko, Sleet, and Hunter the Dog taking their places. About 2 months later, the new administration went ahead with the second move, wiping the previous forum and replacing it with one that is powered by phpBB3.
FFC's original mandate was a forum where followers of Christ who also appreciate anthropomorphic art can relate to one another and discuss relevant issues. It also housed a small, clean anthropomorphic art gallery which was not limited to “religious” art and welcomed deep, non-Christian, non-anthropomorphic material as well.
FFC members attended Rocky Mountain Fur Con and Anthrocon 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. Their activities included Bible studies, a Sunday service, attending panels and sharing their faith with other furries.
- In July 2007, FFC was ranked #3 on Cracked.com's WTF?!: The 8 Strangest Communities on the Web list, above Second Life at #5. This prompted a flood of unregistered guests and some new registrations; as a result, the administrators closed off most of the site to non-members and created a membership application to help weed out spammers and trolls.
- In October 21, 2007, Something Awful featured FFC in its Weekend Web article. The article includes screenshots of the site along with sarcastic comments about the contents of the screenshots. This led to another flurry of guests viewing the site, some of whom spammed the membership applications section.
