Only other because I wanted to hit on a few points: I've been a reader and contributer to FFN for years. It has been keeping me entertained and allowing me an outlet for my own fan fiction. The adult content issue is actually more well-contained than most would have you believe: there is a rating system as well as filters to block the M-rated stories, and unless you hit "Show All" in a category, you're not going to see the higher-rated fics. There was also a massive cleanup a while back wherein a lot of the M-rated fics were gone through and a large amount were sent to FFN's sister site, adultfanfiction.net. (Another thing to note: FFN does not provide a link to its sister site anywhere on its homepage, so one must deliberately enter it into their internet search bar to find it.)
Good site, but has some very mature content. FF.net has a good rating system, though,very much like the ESRB, and you can sort stories based on the rating, however my major complaint is that children could easily get on when their parents aren't looking. You do not have to have an account to view anything rated "Mature" like Youtube or other sites do.
Also, use adblocker, or something to that effect, because every once in a while, when you navigate to a new page, the site will show a full-page ad that you have to click "skip ad" to get rid off, before moving on to the page you wanted to navigate to.
It’s a fantastic site even with the adds been visiting it for 8 years now. Children ought to be fine provided that they don’t read the upper rated stories, and every story is rated and miss rated stories are promptly dealt with. The organization is exceptionally logical and orderly compared to less coherently structured sites like darklordpotte & FicWad who use a more forum type setup with no summaries in the story listings and very few ways to narrow a search but fewer restrictions on the explicitly of what is posted.
While Fanfiction.net is an okay site for adult audience, there is a massive base of inappropriate content for children. Unfortunately, the majority of content on Fanfiction.net is so poorly written, no adult would waste their time.
If you find your kids accessing this site frequently, be careful. It is extremely addicting and can take over their lives. Set limits in regard to how long they can visit the site each day or week.
A massive repository of Fan Fiction, in an easy to read format with few distractions.
The search function can be a bit finicky and there really should be a way for users to rate stories beyond text-only reviews, but otherwise is a great way to lose a few hours.
Can have adult content, but most authors mark their work as such. Those who are offended by adult content just need to hit the back button on their browsers, or set their filter to exclude stuff that is rated M.
A wonderful site. Although the site allows ALL types of fan-fictions, it has convenient filters to help you find what you want and avoid the smutty or childish fics, whichever tickles your fancy. Although the site has some really annoying advertising and some known to navigate you away and add spyware, FF.net has an ad blocker option where you will not see a single ad on the web site for three days (it has to be re-clicked every three days)
The only bad side is that anyone of any age can get an account and read what they want. There are some really smutty and downright graphic fics on this site that would put porn industries and the producer of the SAW series to shame. Parents should monitor their children when browsing this site.
You have the option of not clicking on rated M fics. By default, its categorized K - T so they do not SHOW up unless you choose the option of all ratings. Besides if your kids (by kids, I mean, anyone under 10) are looking up rated M things you should have a big talk with them anyway.
Also, the site is very safe. If your browser is being exploited, it's most likely, from another website.
Even though the site bans adult content, the amount of erotica outnumbers any other type of fiction by a huge ratio (much like on any other fan fiction site). This in an of itself isn't a bad thing, but it is rather telling when the amount of forbidden material outnumbers everything else by such a huge gap.
Mods are, however, swift to deal with plagiarism and other forbidden content such as non-fanfiction stories on the site and stories put in the wrong categories if you can get enough people to rally together and report the abuse.
Also, it has some really annoying pop-up ads, but those can be taken care of by turning on the on-site ad-blocker (you have to do it every three days, though, so an alternative ad-blocker is recommended).
Fun site to read and review other people's stories. The stories could range from fan made stories based on a show, game, or could just be made up. There are also different ratings, genres, and character filters depending on what you want to read. Over all the site seems like a good place to kill some time if you have nothing better to do.
Great site for a wide range of fanfiction, organised by genre, fandom, etc. Unfortunately, even with a rating system in place, not all authors abide by the guidelines. Reviews may include strongly negative language (and flames), and the reader simply has to be discerning with regards to the content he/she is approaching.
It's a site to read fan fiction but there is no criteria for stories, for example a story that is rated NC-17 or, as my friends across the pond call it, rated R can be read by anyone. The advertisements are somewhat flashy but I guess the site has to find funding somewhere.
