Very useful when wanting to show your family or co-worker something without all the porn.

Would have been even cooler if logging into fa.net also logs you into sfw.fa.net.

Although when I tried logging in, I could still see adult thumbnails when I browsed, but the image page was blocked when I tried clicking through. So to be safest, don't log in.

Odd - I only get general-audience thumbs. Though some topics might be considered NSFW even if not mature.

Sounds like they restrict cookies to the specific domain name and not apply cookies across all subdomain names. I'm sure they'll work on making the login system a "single sign on" type in the future.

This has come back to bite them now that SSL is enabled for logins - it sends you to www.

You can force a login on https://sfw.furaffinity.net/login and it works, though it currently redirects back to www.

I wonder what the false identification rates are for FA pics. I guess we'll find one of them out.

Although, they still have NSFW ads on the SFW site. >_<

That's definitely a bug. Make sure they know about it.

Your rating: None

I dunno - I'm seeing ads for NSFW material, but the ads themselves do not appear to contain any adult content.

Your rating: None

I guess FA's ad TOS allows for advertising of adult martial as long as there is no nudity.

"Safe for work" is, IMO, a more stringent standard than there just being a lack of sexually explicit content. Unless it's not obvious that it's an adult work, it could still be problematic.

But it is, of course, only an opinion. There's a continuum of prudishness to be placated, and it's up to FA to decide where to set the standard.

Your rating: None

The journal entries are not filtered either. I can totally imagine a work proxy catching explicit words in journals and forbidding acces while you surf SFW FA.

FA will need to add ratings to journals if they want to correct that, just as with submissions. As a bonus that would also prevent minors from reading about 18+ things in the journals.
Let's hope FA has found some coders to implement this.

it a improvement
