Uh, what happened to FurNation exactly?.. I thought it was rather highly regarded as a furry art site.. or was this just an oversight, which I can understand?..
I don't really consider Furnation an art archive, but rather a furry webhosting service, which is quite different (but no less cool!)
Poor furnation, tucked away in the depths of darkness where nobody may vote for it.
All yiffiness, all the time, baby!
Side7 may take a while to load, but it's better than Yerf anyday...
*waves a 'Side7' flag*
Fanarchive.net is so underappreciated :(
ditto. It's my fav. followed closely by pureyiff
go go side7, it pwns
of all art archives on the net my favorite, though it isn't furry oriented, and doesn't encourage a predominance of furry theme, has to be elfwood, if only for it's comment system.
vcl is still my favorite place to post because i'm not limited to how many items i can have up there as long as the're to theme.
there really isn't anyplace that's totaly right on to my personal theme (of dipicting life in/on the kind of world contributers to it would actualy like to live in) that i've found so far.
there is a place though, a wonderful place that isn't an archive site but is a world i like to visit (and it IS furry). i'm not naming it here because i'm not sure if its creators are ready to be flooded and i wouldn't want anything to mess it up. (it's been mentioned and announced elswhere here on flayrah - it just isn't an archive site as such either or it least i'm not sure it's intended to be, though it is a world open to those really willing to research and embrace its unique and wonderful theme)
there were a couple of places mentioned in the vote menu
that are open themed which is ok
but the're not real friendly for visitors to navigate
which i see as being a problem
ah and then poor old wonderful fur nation
that place was my discouvery of the wonderfulness of furryness back when i first started wandering the net.
not an archive but a hosting site that just outgrew itself and its available resources
huggs to its creator
grant granting outfits need to support places like that
we'd all live in a better world if they did
Of all art archives on the net my favorite... has to be elfwood, if only for it's comment system.
Its comment system is why I like YNA a great deal. It's navigation (particularly linking artist's information, journal, and archive all together) is not too good, but it actively encourages helpful comments and has a good system for that. ElfWood is nice and has a terrific format, but is so huge that it is easy to get lost as an artist on there!
For browsing artists, I think Yerf has the nicest set-up, followed closely by VCL and FanArchive. (Pity FanArchive hasn't been taking new artists for a very long time.)

Perhaps they separated web hosts from automated archives? Every day there seems to be more furry services coming online and I think that is a good thing. :) If they do hold a poll for Furry Web Hosts I hope they include our www.furtopia.org . Though we’re not as large as Furnation we are known for our good reliability and extra services. We’ll also have a better redesigned look soon. Even with our size I think we could hold our own in the polls. I think it would be neat to see. :)
