News & Announcements

Community news is posted here by the administration. Occasionally, newsfeeds of relevance may also be posted here by KinBot.

If you're feeling depressed, you are free to reach out via PM. However, Kinmunity staff members (including myself) are not trained mental health professionals. We cannot promise to make the pain go away or provide counselling services. We can (and will) listen and empathize with you. We cannot promise an instant response as we all have lives outside of the website. As somebody who has struggled with depression, I can personally say this - if you message me personally, I WILL respond to you...
Heyo all! We've noticed some people putting threads in the wrong place, so we felt it would be useful to make a little guide of where to put your threads when you're creating them. These are the boards we often find posted in improperly, or not used when they should be. Suggestion Box: Put suggestions for new features for the site here. Note: If you want a place for discussion that isn't currently covered by a forum board, you might be better off making a club for it instead (since that's...

As you may have noticed by the small period of downtime, Kinmunity has moved to another server. This move was performed for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to: more storage space more processing power more RAM separation between Lycanthropy LLC production and testing grounds This will ensure continued stability of the site, as well as ensure privacy and security for all of our users. Since the server move is complete, we will be working on adding new features to the site...
The green verified badge on Kinmunity lets people know that a user of public interest's identity has confirmed by Kinmunity Staff and that they are an authentic person. Kinmunity Staff work diligently to seek out and approach well-known members of the communities we serve to help them achieve verified status on Kinmunity. However, we also allow any member over the age of eighteen to request verification if they feel they meet our notability criteria, explained below: Staff Members Current...
Kinmunity is under new management.... but, also no. As of April 7th 2021, Kinmunity is now owned by Lycanthropy LLC. Lycanthropy LLC is a limited liability corporation, of which, I am the sole member and organizer. This change should mean absolutely nothing to you, but it is my responsibility to disclose it to you anyway. The Terms and Rules, About Us, and Privacy Policy pages have been updated to reflect this fact. This does not mean that we're going corporate, or that advertisements will...
You know, it seems like we're updating the site on the daily now. After a prolonged period of inactivity as far as development and updates on Kinmunity are concerned, it only makes sense to make up for that by releasing new stuff as much as we can! This update is a slightly smaller than some of the other ones we've released here -- but bare with us, more is on the way! :coolw: The Consent Update Access to the NSFW sections of the site is now available by opt-in only. This requires users to...
The first way to start off this update is to announce that we've got some new forums. We don't normally add forums which are suggested to us as we have plenty of discussion forums on the site, and for most things, it is easier to just have users create their own areas using our social groups system. However, due to repeated requests for them, we've added several this update. New forum, new me! New Section - The Burrows New Forum - Mental Health (thanks @Ravenna Freyasdottir) New Forum -...
DISCONTINUE USE OF THERIAN-GUIDE – DO NOT VISIT! Original Post re: Therian-Guide Allegation (archive), (image), (image archive) Recent allegations made against The Therian Guide have caused the safety of the site to be called into question. Particularly, at this time, I believe the site to be extremely unsafe for users under the age of eighteen. However, due to a pattern of threats made by the administrators against further users, I also believe the site to be unsafe for adults to use as...
Woo! It's update time again! Major Layout Changes "What's New" is now front and center, as it allows members to easily discover new content. "Tickets" tab is now tucked away in the "Members" section, as there is a redirect forum linking to the ticket center as-is. We've rearranged where different sections of the site show up in the header, hopefully more aligned with how people actually use Kinmunity. Android App Kinmunity now has an Android App. On-Site Chat Kinmunity now has an...
While it may seem like the administration team of Kinmunity isn't doing much at times, the truth is, we normally work behind the scenes to bring new features and improved stability to the site. With that in mind, I present you with one of the biggest updates we've had in a long while. This update includes the usual rounds of bug fixes, but it also includes new features and improved experiences throughout the site as a whole. New Stuff KinCash Users now earn bones for reacting to posts...
You'll notice upon logging in to Kinmunity, you will now have a referral link visible to you. This link can be used to invite somebody to the site, and can be placed in signatures on other forums, or other places. There's rewards available for bringing people on to the site. You'll receive 45 bones for every user you refer that contributes at least 10 posts to the site; we also have anti-cheating algorithms to prevent self-referrals.
As you know, Kinmunity is funded almost entirely out of pocket by @Alynna and myself. As it currently stands, I am facing financial difficulties due to the COVID-19 pandemic and would greatly appreciate assistance, as I pay approximately $36 / mo to keep the site up and that bill is coming due.

We are now on Discord - officially. The Kinmunity and 🐺Naia's Den Discord servers are now one in the same. This move was done order to help members of both servers communicate, relate, find friends, and educate each other during times of isolation. The result is a unified community! Kinmunity users will enjoy instant access, as well as the ability to view KM-only areas of the server. CLICK HERE TO JOIN!
It's been a while since a major update was introduced to the site. Actually, it's been about three months I believe! I think more than enough time has passed and that it's time to introduce some exciting new changes to Kinmunity. Our site has been updated once again, and hopefully will bring you an experience that's better than ever. So, let's dive into some changes, shall we? Under the hood, we have upgraded to the final version of Xenforo 2.2 and we left 2.1 behind. This introduces some...
Kinmunity is undergoing a major system update, please pardon the dust.
@Alynna has been given full admin rights (same access as me). She was an original founder of Kinmunity and has stepped up to help with a lot of things. I am going through a lot in my personal life right now and I no longer wish to be the public face of the site. My notority and "fame" if you will has gone to my head, and has caused serious problems with the two people I love more than anything in this world, among other things. I am transferring day-to-day operation of the site to her at...
Many of you may not know this, but the original Kinmunity was the brain-child of myself and @Alynna. We founded the original site back in 2014 after the closure of Wulf Howl. The site has gone through many incarnations since then, but ultimately retains the original concepts that Alynna and I envisioned. Today, Alynna rejoins the administration team as a Sr. Community Manager. Welcome back!
Note: I will continue to administrate and maintain Kinmunity and Wolf Howl, and actively develop them both! After much consideration, I have decided to depart from the greater alterhuman community (including the otherkin and therianthropy communities, respectively) due to a wide variety of reasons that would be best summarized as: my personal views and the consensus of the greater community generally go in entirely different directions. I will always be a wolf girl, but no longer use the...
Today, between 1:00 AM and 3:00 AM, Kinmunity was effected by a targeted Distributed Denial of Service Attack against our server. This attack as mitigated by OVH's infrastructure. We have received notification from OVH that the attacks have subsided (recv. 07/29/2020 3:00 AM). However, before the attacks begun, a troll account called Sextoy registered to the site and repeatedly posted our public IP address, in a failed attempt to intimidate our staff team. The posts were automatically...
We are running a beta version of Xenforo; some things will not work as intended. Please be aware that we are working on things actively.
Feature Additions New Forum Types Discussion Forums - the classic forum everybody is used to, Kinmunity has always had this forum type. Article Forums - some forums now display in an article-like layout, like the News & Announcement forum! Suggestion Forums - our Suggestion Box now allows voting on suggestions. Question Forums - we had this before on the old system for 'Kin Q&A, we brought it back. Search Forums - this isn't yet in use, but will allow us to display threads from different...
Kinmunity does not support beastiality. We firmly believe that animals are not capable of giving informed consent to sexual activity with human beings. Bestiality is a form of cruel animal abuse, regardless of arguments put forth by zoophiles. This has long-been the position of the Kinmunity administration. The purpose of this thread is to clarify our policy on how we handle the topic going forward. It shall be written policy that: Practicing zoophiles (people who engage in sexual acts with...
As some of you may have already noticed, the blog feature has been added back to the site! :) We are currently testing out a new blog system which could add some interesting options, see Naia's blog post for some details. I know many of you have been worried about your old blog posts. Unfortunately the blog posts from the previous platform could not be transferred over automatically. Your old posts are not lost though, they've been archived! To access the blog archive visit this page...
You can now earn bones for participating on Kinmunity, thanks to our KinCash system! This system will enable us to reward users for various acts of participation on our site, by allowing them to earn digital currency which can be changed for goodies depending on how active they are on site. Right now, we are still in the process of configuring the system and therefore we will not be explaining which items earn or lose bones just yet as this could change based on your usage. Once we have...
We are testing a beta version of Kinmunity. The site is not yet finished/complete. Please be patient while we finish the site - we figured we would best open so users could at least communicate and explore!
From yesterday forward, Kinmunity will be keeping accounts of what is donated during a donation drive, and where that money goes. We feel this is a good way of helping people see exactly what their contribution does for the site. Each drive that is held, I will update this thread with the spreadsheet explaining incoming and outgoing funds. NOTE: The spreadsheets are updated manually, so a donation that shows up in the donation tracker may not show in the spreadsheet until the next day...
