Furry Play is one of the furry fandom's largest video-sharing websites.[citation needed] It is also known for having its roots on a dead proboards board.[clarify]

Services[edit]

The site's objective is to create a primarily user-controlled environment based on suggestions, threads, and content posted by users, as well other things a user might be able to think of. Following this, the site atmosphere is very laidback, as users can be more productive in the shaping of Furry Play then most other sites.

Archive[edit]

The site contains a user-driven archive, loosely based primarily off of yiffstar's archive system. It allows users to upload their work, then lets a reviewer check to see if the work is furry or not.

The archive goes under changes almost weekly, and there are plans for starting a Stories and Images section, while still attempting to keep the focus primarily on movies.

Chat room[edit]

Starting in November of 2008, Furry Play launched an IRC-based Java chat. The chat uses Synirc.net for running the chat on the channel #holegan. As of May 2009, Furry Play has launched its own #furryplay channel using a mibbit connection.

Forum[edit]

The site allows users to post on a variety of topics, ranging from sexuality to requests for art. The forum is run by a group of moderators that make sure topics are age appropriate for the sections they are in.

Integration of Foxbox.cc[edit]

In 2010, after Foxbox.cc's owners lost their domain to domain squatters, the owners agreed to let Furry Play host a backup of Foxbox on a subdomain.[clarify] This resulted in a partial integration of one of the largest furry animation and video archives on the Web.

Mascot[edit]
