ArtFurYou was a social network for sharing images which attempted to be "the French alternative" of Fur Affinity.
They created the novembre 30 2019 in BETA by Sori initially called "FurArt", the same day the site changed its name to "ArtFurYou".


ArtFurYou was launched on November 30, 2019 to be "the little alternative of FurAffinity" by Sori while also having the idea of giving a French touch to Fandom.

Sometime from late 2022 and by at least January 28, 2023 the owner left this announcement and shut the site down.

Hello everyone.

Today I announce the end of a project that I created developed and managed during all this time..

ArtFurYou was supposed to be the alternative to FurAffinity, the goal was achieved but the community did not follow. The site has been updated for almost a year now. The code becoming obsolete and no longer having time to start from scratch I can't afford to do it. In order not to jeopardize the private data of users, the site is now inaccessible and its database as well as the source code of the site will be deleted and stored on a usb key to keep an archive of the site. Thank you for this adventure with AFY hoping to have brought a solution against FurAffinity.... - Sori

A good start with bugs[edit]

From the first day of its opening, the first arrivals encountered problems to register because the register form did not work, but also the system to post image worked 1 time out of 2 and that of like marked "ERROR" and many other bugs were present. Despite these bugs, they were quickly resolved, but a few days later security vulnerabilities were discovered that endangered user data, two days were necessary to close these.
