FurAffinity is an art gallery website, and the largest web community of the furry fandom. It was recently acquired by IMVU (see the recent journals of the site's mascot account), and while the site and community have endured multiple prior divisive events, the prior owner's continued control of the site's maintenance is now uncertain due to the acquisition, and the site's future is similarly uncertain as a consequence of that.
The site allows artists to hide their account information, including submitted content, from guest viewers, and mature and adult submissions are hidden from everyone except for registered users over the age of 18 who have enabled the viewing of such content. Backing up the site's submissions in their entirety, therefore, can only be done from a registered account with this setting enabled.
There is a bare bones but extensive backup of user hosted FA content on a Tor hidden service hosted by an unknown party (cleartext proxy URL onion URL). This website hosts a backup of user submissions and their descriptions, but not of comments, user profiles, journal entries, or other website data.
