So FA has issues, we all know this. The only thing keeping it alive is its large userbase, which ironically is also the reason it is dying.18 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.
So FA has a bad database for the user size it has, the bigger it got the slower it crawled.
InkBunny has a lot of activity, but lives with the questionable cub content, that makes people not want to use the site. Which is a shame since IB has a much better interface than all the other websites.
SoFurry, I just hate the UI for that site, Also rating art? Nothing bothers me more than getting a 5/5 rating for a drawing or animation I did. It makes the things I do feel more commercial. It's one thing to receive criticism, but a number is like no one is putting any effort to criticise. 5/5 means the viewer has no complaints, so I would like to know what a user is thinking if he decided to give me a lower score.
Weasyl. Best website ever has everything you need and the mods are great, says everyone that migrates from FA to Weasyl. It bothers me how much the more vocal users of that website are preachy and want everyone to leave FA in favour of their holy land of digital depravity. The userbase puts me off, like Jehovah witness or Mormons at my door, but that's personal. Overall Weasyl is good save for the thumbnail feature, I hate having to click an image to view what it consists of because someone wanted to focus on a characters face rather than the actual focus of the drawing.
As far as activity goes it seem like FA and IB are the most active websites, Weasyl has little to no activity by comparison, SoFurry is a middle.

That's true, though Hentai Foundry was more of a general purpose pornographic site from the start. Then almost all of the artists who partook in that genre went to pixiv or god knows where else.
You know I really wouldn't care all that much, but I am a rule 34ist & a furry. When you start banning ideas, who knows where it'll end. It's currently like a game of whack-o-mole, hell we are discussing such right now in terms of migration.

They could but both SF and IB allow cub porn, but SF does ban Loli/shota also but allow humans, IB just out right bans ALL humans and their reasoning IS cause "this is a furry art site, furries only" just like how on SoFurry you cant and shouldnt post landscape type art as they are also "Furry art plz" site

Yep, but no one cares about SoFurry anyway and IB became the "cub porn place" after FA was forced to ban it. HF banned loli and cub totally due to changing worldwide laws, same reason Paheal did(sorta- Paheal has been far too lazy to actually remove anything). More countries are rewording the cp laws to classify drawings or anything "humanoid" and leaving it vague enough to prosecute over cub.
I am not certain what keeps SF going. It seems most everyone who fled FA skipped it over for the newer sites.
And unless you're selling commissions there's no reason to be on multiple furry sites. SF, IB and Weasyl have mostly the same users and same fandom, plus the same drama. Anyone not selling commissions would gain nothing by being on more than one site. Hell, if you're a failure of an artist, or just hated for drama reasons, you probably shouldn't be on any of the sites.

The reason Inkbunny doesn't allow human porn appears to be due to laws where the servers are located.
Anything animal-ish and human-ish in proximity can be classed as bestiality in the Netherlands, so 'no human porn' is the easiest way to handle it.
You can post all the non-porn humans you want.
