I've been a member since 2004, but I'd like to express my disappointment as moderation has gone down the drain and there are plenty of submissions that range from simple trolling, out of scope or outright not-safe-for-work.
This is a great sight for finding well-written fan fiction that crosses numerous genres and media. The site is free of viruses and other malware. Parents should be cautious about what they let their children read, however, because there is mature content on this site.
Good and safe, virus-free site despite lots of stories containing NSFW and mature material. Luckily it has filters to fix that, and there are also plenty of fanfictions that are suitable for kids to read, spanning many various shows on TV and movies, etc.
Keep an eye on the ratings of the stories and use common sense. Some M(Mature) stories also have warnings to what it'll contain.
Other than that, completely safe.
Be cautious and follow up on adult (all works are written) content that may be present in published works even if it does not contain warnings. Authors may forget or may label incorrectly. For the most part the authors are considerate and competent when it comes to this.
There is some content, such as homesecuality & homoeroticism, that may offend or put off only due to the political and social stance of the reader. Not inappropriate but simply subject to opinion. These shouldn't be issues but not all visitors to the website are open minded or accepting of others who are different.
Otherwise I trust and like the site 100%.
The only real issue that Fanfiction.net may pose is the ease at which anyone can read an "M" rated story. As these are stories, there's really no way of warning people what exactly will be in one, so it's easy to stumble across something.
Despite this, there are many, many sites that allow ease of access for the very reason to let users go directly to stories with a more mature content. Basically, the only issue on Fanfiction is to let your child know whether or not it is safe to read a M rated story.
Some stories have questionable content so parents should monitor their children's usage of this website. Many stories are appropriate, and with caution you can avoid running into that kind of material.
FanFiction.Net is a hostfer for fan-written stories other fandoms. Please Note that in some (if not most) jurisdictions the act of publishing and distributing of those stories is forbidden but the laws are usually not enforced as this would mean that their authors would most likely lose their fans.
Adult content is filtered unless explicitely disabled in the filters of the website.
