    • As has been said in various places, Kinspots are good for visualizing how many Therians or Otherkin are near to you, especially for the purposes of meet ups. Adults should be allowed to post their location for this purpose, and I see nothing wrong with the Kinspots. It’s up to the individual to take the risk with putting their general location, which while I can understand concern for people putting their real locations, is again, up to the individual. If you have concern over a minor putting their actual address however, you can PM a mod and mention it to them and we can handle it.

    • So it's cool to see my username in a picture by the site admin, and I'm not even in trouble! I feel cool!  I'm glad you are changing the Howls and Kinspots features, though I have to ask why even have the Kinspots feature. It seem... I don't know... potentially dangerous. I mean why does that even need to be a thing? I mean I saw someone who put their home address. Even cities or towns seems far to traceable.  I guess I don't understand the purpose behind the feature, and why it's rewarded to put your location up for other members to see. Considering I've been told repeatedly that we need to be safe, and respectful because minors are here, but then they are putting their real first names (sometimes) and some are putting their cities and towns down for others to see. I know it's not mandatory, but you do get bones for doing it, which is basically rewarding what could be used to trace and cyber stalk someone. If minors are so seceptable to bad language, why are they allowed to essentially broadcast their homes irl? All it takes is one crazy person, and bam! they could get enough information from that information to potentially find them.  Since you're keeping it (Though I really don't understand why and would appreciate someone explaining to me how the benefits outweigh the potential abuse and danger) I think it should be over 18 just like the Howls.  Regardless, good work as always on the update, and again, cool to see my username up there in a not bad manner! 
    • This should be a support ticket. This section of Kinmunity is intended for asking questions about the alterhuman community. 
    • I agree with Naia. You can copyright the name of the species. You can copyright a specific character. And you can only really sue someone if you have legally copyrighted it. They only cause drama, and enable the toxicity of the artist community. That being said, however, I do believe in being decent about it, claiming you made the specific species name and lore is just not right, morally, but someone said it best in a comment.  With the example about not wanting people to just make characters for their species if its for a story, well why are they putting it up public then?  You can't own a species. The best example I saw used was "Me: Draws human character. God: That's my closed species! You can't draw that!" Adoptables, though I don't believe in them, are legally acceptable on the sole understanding that once you buy it from them, you own all rights to that character (Also species characters you buy). You can do whatever you want with it, you can recolor it. You can change their designs, you can resell them or trade them, or even give them away. The original artist has no rights to it anymore, they forfeited that when they sold it to you. They can't tell you what to do with it, they can't take it back, they can't do anything unless they are selling you a license to the IP in questions, in which case it must be drawn up legally, paid for, and state exactly what can and can't be done. But this is a discussion for another place, probably. My second daily thought; beat swaps by Adam Emond and captioned by Whip are some of the funniest things on Youtube.  
    • Thank you all so much! I am going to a school where none of these people will attend and so far, all the people who I have met (it's a specialty school for the arts) have been the most supportive. With being trans and therian. I will most definitely take into heart what all of you have said. So thanks so much to @Naia @Red-in-Tooth @KnightFenrirWulfhart @LunastreDraconis And last but most definitely not least @Metakka Thank you all so much for your advice. It has been greatly appreciated!
