    Elders are members of Kinmunity who have made a significant amount of contributions to our site; and who have the tenure, reputation, and behavior befitting of the position. Along with the ability to apply for the position of Helper, Elders have the following abilities on Kinmunity: Elders can give twenty-five ratings per day, up from ten. Elders can give "High Quality" and "Low Quality" ratings. Elders have access to a special forum and Discord channel. Elders have a special badge under their name signifying their status. The "Elder" status is automatically awarded to users who meet a certain criteria. When it comes down to it, all one has to do to become an Elder is contribute to the community, have patience, and be voted in by your fellow members. You'll automatically reach Elder status once: Tenure You've been a member for at least six months and one day AND Contribution You've contributed at least one-thousand items of content AND Reputation Your reputation score is fifty or above AND Behavior You have less than two active warning points. Once you meet the criteria listed above, you'll receive a message from KinBot the "Elder" flag has been applied to your account. The process is automatic and nothing needs to be done by you or our staff team. There are a couple of unique conditions that would cause you to not automatically receive Elder status, and those are: You've been automatically granted Elder status before, and it was revoked by a staff member. (In this case, you wouldn't be eligible for automatic promotion again) A staff member of Kinmunity has set the "Elder Lock" status on your account. (In this case, you would not be eligible for promotion until the lock has been cleared)

    Starting 02/07/2019, users must meet a set of criteria for their account to be automatically confirmed. Accounts that are not confirmed will not be able use certain features of Kinmunity. The criteria required for confirmation is low enough to not cause a lot of headache, but high enough that there's little return on investment for abusive people. IN ORDER TO BE CONFIRMED: Your account must be at least seven (7) days old. You must have posted at least fifteen (15) pieces of content. Once you meet criteria, you will be automatically confirmed by our system and your restrictions will be lifted. It may take up to twenty four hours after you meet criteria for the system to promote you; please be patient - it's well worth the wait!

Ensure that your browser is set to allow JavaScript and Cookies from kinmunity.com We utilize cookies in order to keep you logged in and various portions of our site make use of JavaScript, including some security checks we perform at the time of registration. If you have cookies or JavaScript disabled, you may not be able to register on Kinmunity. Ensure that you are using a home internet connection or personal cellular connection. In order to prevent abuse of our resources, our security system does not allow users behind VPNs (Virtual Private Networks), proxies, TOR, or similar services to register an account. Occasionally, people who try to register at work or school will also be blocked from registering as our system does not differentiate between malicious and non-malicious VPNs. The best way to remedy this is to simply register from a personal connection or contact us to have an account created for you. Ensure that you're using a real email address that has some tenure. Our security system does not allow registration from disposable or temporary email addresses. This includes legitimate email addresses created for the single purpose of registering a Kinmunity account. These measures are in place to prevent abuse.

Kinmunity does not have the infrastructure setup to process parental permission forms, so we cannot make exceptions, sorry! Your answer to the challenge question was not valid. Please try again.

    You may have noticed the "like" (thumbs up) icon that appears towards the bottom on content on Kinmunity. If you move your mouse over the icon (or tap it once on mobile), you'll be presented with even more icons! This is Kinmunity's reaction system. It consists of both reactions reputation points: A reaction is a graphical image that corresponds with feedback about a post. The reactions in the example above, in order from left to right, are: Friendly, Winner, Informative, Useful, High Quality, Low Quality, Dislike, TL;DR, WTF?, Poor Spelling / Grammar, Too Short / Low Effort, Mean, Rubbish, and Like. Most users can give out up to ten reactions per day, while elders and staff members will be able to give out more. A reaction is given out by hovering over (or tapping on mobile) the "like" icon, and then clicking on the icon of the reaction desired. A reputation point is a numeric value that accompanies a reaction which effects a user's reputation score. A reaction can be positive, negative, or neutral. A positive reaction contains a reputation point of +1 and a negative reaction contains a reputation point of -1. Neutral reactions have a point value of ±0, so they don't effect scores at all. The reactions, their attached reputation points, the access level required to use them, and their descriptions are listed below: Like ±0 (access: everyone) - The most ubiquitous reaction is our like reaction. This reaction is used to indicate that you like (or agree with) a certain piece of content on the site. Love +1 (access: everyone) - The love reaction is used to indicate an extreme like of a particular piece content. It is meant to be used for exceptional content, and not "thrown about" as the "Like" reaction is. Think of it like the winner reaction, but available to everyone. Friendly +1 (access: everyone) - The friendly reaction is meant to be given to content that portrays our site a friendly and welcoming environment, particularly in regards to new users. Winner +1 (access: staff) - The winner reaction is a special reaction that can only be given out by staff members. It is awarded to particularly detailed, informative, unique, and meaningful pieces of content. Informative +1 (access: everyone) - The informative reaction is meant to be given to content that is detailed, explanatory, and of course... informative! It's a great reaction to use in our Library, but can be used everywhere! Useful +1 (access: everyone) - The useful reaction is mainly given to content that was of use to the person giving the reaction. A good example would be advice given in the form of a thread reply. High Quality +1 (access: elder, staff) - This reaction is meant to be given to content that is of extremely high quality. Low Quality -1 (access: elder, staff) - This reaction is meant to be given to content that is of extremely low quality. Dislike ±0 (access: everyone) - The dislike reaction is opposite of the like reaction. It is used to indicate that you dislike (or disagree with) a certain piece of content on the site. TL;DR ±0 (access: everyone) - This reaction is intended for content that is overly wordy or lengthy. For example, something that could be said in a sentence rather than a paragraph. It stands for "Too long; did not read" by the way. WTF!? ±0 (access: everyone) - This reaction is meant to be used on content that is confusion, strange, or otherwise caused you to ask yourself "What the fox!?" Poor Spelling / Grammar -1 - (access: everyone) - This reaction is self explanatory; it is given to content with excessive spelling and grammar errors. Too Short / Low Effort -1 - (access: everyone) - This reaction is intended to be given to "low effort" content; content that doesn't contribute anything of value to the discussion at hand or the category it is contained in. An example of this would be a single word "welcome" post in the scent rolling forum. Mean -1 (access: everyone) - This reaction is meant to be given to content that is rude in tone or just plain mean! Rubbish -1 (access: everyone) - This reaction is meant to be given to content that shouldn't have been posted at all. Spam, troll posts, and other similar garbage content should all receive a ton of these reactions!
