Hello, As many of you probably know, my birthday is on June 18th. I intend to spend the day with my mate @NaomiG, as I am not fond of large parties and crowds. However, there is something that I would like from all of the lovely members of Kinmunity and that is donations towards the site. It is honestly one of my passions to work on Kinmunity, and while I don't post as often as some of our guardians and community managers, I consistently work on the back end adding new features and...
On 05/14/2019, a bug was introduced to Kinmunity that prevented many users from logging in. This bug was the result of code that was added to Kinmunity in order to restrict certain features (like KinSpots and Howls) to members who are over the age of sixteen. The action to assess their age and move them to the appropriate usergroup was being performed before login was completed, resulting in a temporary account being made where the user was required to "complete the profile" before they...
As many of you are likely aware there is currently a bug making it difficult for users to log in to Kinmunity. On logging in to the site you are then asked to create a new account with a new username/email. Upon doing so you are then able to log back in to your usual account. We realise this is causing a lot of difficulties/confusion and apologise for the inconvenience. I'm sure Naia will have this issue fixed as soon as she is able! If you are accessing the site through a secure...
Status Updates typically produce content of low quality, which are then artificially reacted to by users. They are isolated to user profiles and aren't typically advertised elsewhere. They're also typically buried as other content is created and reacted to. Going forward, status updates will be disabled. Please see our guidelines regarding the reaction system.
People don't really care for donation drives, we get it! However, we also occasionally need help with site expenses. Instead of annoyingly begging people to donate, we figure rewarding people is a better idea! All donors will receive a donor badge that appears on their posts, but gold donors? They get something extra special! You can become a gold donor by donating $100 to the site; this doesn't have to be a single donation. You can donate money over time, and once you've donated $100 total...
New Features Created New Discussion Forum "The Watering Hole" for generalized discussion of a more serious nature than in "Chit Chat"; protected by login gate. As a result, the reaction system has been turned off in "Chit Chat". Major Changes Our Discord server has been condensed and simplified. We highly recommend using IRC instead. The following Discord channels have been archived and are scheduled for removal in 29 days: #support #suggestions...
She's had the title for about a day or two now, but I figured I'd announce once she settled in. Congrats to @Velvet as our first community manager. She has been in the otherkin community for nearly 20 years and her friendly attitude and contributions to the site have not gone unnoticed.
A tiny update has been made, yay! New Features Automatic backups have been enabled. Changes The time limit for editing posts has been extended. Duplicate emojis have been removed. As you may have noticed when logging in, our Terms of Use have changed. By contributing content to Kinmunity, you are essentially giving us the right to display that content. Don't worry; you still own your creations! Users now need to be auto-confirmed and have created at least 75 pieces of...
Since its current incarnation, Kinmunity has survived on a ad-hoc backup schedule. This is to say, that I would manually generate and store a backup before doing any major work on the site. As the site grows, especially considering downtime of the past, this is no longer a viable option. We need to take regular backups in order to be prepared to address unforeseeable future problems and ensure the continued existence of the site in the future. In order to do this, we have enabled automatic...
This was a bad April Fools joke.  Yesterday. I was approached by a representative of iterally.media (they are known for owning KnowYourMeme and eBaum's world). While originally not being interested in their offer to purchase Kinmunity, an offer was made in excess of $10,000 for the acquisition of the site and its contents. As of today, I have accepted that offer. What this means Beginning on 04/15/2019, the post editor will be updated to allow embedding content from KnowYourMeme...
Kinmunity Internet Relay Chat Network server: irc.kinmunity.net    ports: 6667, +6697 (ssl)    webchat [✔]     official site [✔]     services panel [✔] As was hinted when Kinnect shutdown, something was in the works to replace it that better aligned with our needs. That something has finally materialized in the form of the Kinmunity IRC network. While there have been many incarnations of IRC networks serving the therianthropy community over the years, to my knowledge none served the...
New Features New Donations System Users now receive a "Donor" tag if they donate, as long as they don't do so anonymously. Users who donate more than $100 (total, doesn't have to be in a single donation) will receive a "Gold Donor" badge, and eventually, certain privileges to go with it! New Discord Integration System This won't effect most users; but for new users integrating with Discord is easier. Users who aren't auto-confirmed may now join our...
It's been a little over a week since we unveiled the public demonstration of our Kinnect chat platform. We've received a lot of feedback and made a lot of various improvements and fixes. We even released a Desktop Client for Windows (more platforms, including mobile, to come) in this short time. Our little service is now finally ready for prime time! Kinnect replaces our Discord server While our Discord server will remain online for the foreseeable future, Kinnect is intended to replace...
New Features Perspective users can now post before registering; posts will be saved temporarily and released once a user creates registration. The idea behind this is that hopefully it will encourage people to join the site. It also improves security in areas such as "Kin Q&A" because straight up guest posting is now disabled. We now support animated .gif (we pronounce it the same was as the peanut butter, just as the format's creator intended, in-case you are wondering) embeds. We...
You didn't think being out of beta meant no more site updates did you? I certainly hope not! We've got quite a few new features for everyone, some bug fixes, and a small bit of maintenance done on this particular update. Enjoy~ New Features Profile Privacy has been implemented; you can now choose to show your profile to the world, members only, or staff members only.  Avian, Fox, Ungulate, and Big Cat emojis have been added. Thanks to @Jethero for creating them and donating them for...
Who doesn't love site updates? Over the past few days, we've made several minor updates to the site to help improve usability as well as quite a few small new features.  New Features You can now clear your notifications; because why shouldn't you be able to? You can now quote a post and send it in a private message using the envelope icon that appears next to the "Report Post" link. It's a small improvement, but it's something that should improve communication with your fellow users...
As of today, February 15th, 2019, Kinmunity 2.0 is no longer considered to be in open beta. This means that the site is stable and secure enough for every-day use. It also means that most of the core functionality of the site that was available in the first incarnation of Kinmunity has been restored and is now fully operational!  This doesn't mean that more features aren't going to be added to Kinmunity; we've still got a lot planned such as: Badges (redeemable (bought with bones) and...
Instant Messaging The instant messaging feature that debuted with Wulf Howl and somehow never managed to carry over to the new version on Kinmunity is now back. You'll be able to send instant messages to users that you follow on the site. This simple feature was requested by many in the form of private messages, Discord DMs, and contact requests; now it's back! Chat Operators Kinmunity is looking for chat operators. Chat operators assist our staff team by: processing the instant...
The last update was pretty minor, I actually felt bad about making a thread for it. This thread actually catalogs a series of updates that were made to Kinmunity silently over the last few days, including several that were made early this morning. Essentially, we've got: 7 feature updates, a bug fix, and two maintenance actions this time around. Thank you to everyone who helps support the site! Features 132 Cat Emojis added. Wolven theme is back and better than ever; it's been...
The bones shop is back! We'll be adding things that you'll be able to purchase from it in the coming few weeks! Also; it no longer costs bones to create a club! The reactions system is now properly set up. Reactions have either a positive, neutral, or negative reputation point attached to them. The reactions we use are listed below: Like Friendly Informative Useful High Quality Low Quality...
A few more updates; yay! Moods System installed. You can now select a mood near where you check your private messages on the site. Moods will display on posts, near the bottom-center of your avatar. on profiles, and on the member-card. VIP users can also edit the "Feeling" field which will display in the same spots. More mood graphics will be added in the future! Date of Birth enforcement has been turned on. All users will now be required to input...
We've made some small incremental changes to the site, namely the below: An adults only area called "The Tavern" has been added to the site. You'll need to set your birthday in your profile to see it, though! Users can now deactivate or delete their account. Deletion will be denied for users with active warning points, but deactivation is always permitted. Several changes have been made to make the site more attractive to search engines. @Velvet Wings has joined our staff team...
As some of you may be aware, there are some issues with the bones system that began on 01/03/2019. The system is currently down while I debug it. All data up until this point is saved, however; you will NOT earn bones for posts during this time. Another announcement will be made when the system is back up. Thank you.
