  • Awakening Experience
    From quite a young age, I felt as though I wasn't entirely human internally. After watching the anime series "Wolf's Rain" at the recommendation of my friend at the time, I gained a fascination and fixation with wolves. I researched what I could about wolves, their behavior, etc. and began feeling as though I was "a wolf in a human body". I expressed this feeling to my friend, who joked that I was probably a furry. I spent some time in the Furry Fandom before ultimately being told by one of my furry friends of the therian community.

    I awakened as a fox in 2014 after an encounter I had with a Red Fox.

  1. Since people are still bringing up things from over six years ago, I feel that this does warrant an explanation to those who aren’t familiar with the story. 1. Taka showed interest in me for a period of several months. She told me all sorts of stories about how her mate raped and abused her in order to make me feel bad for her. She eventually started Skyping me and we became friends. I told her I had feelings for her after she stated she had feelings for me. 2. After I discovered that much of what she told me was untrue, I confronted her. She initially denied lying about being raped (among other things), and then said a malicious head-mate of hers was interacting with me for the entire time and that she herself didn’t like nor even know me. 3. I did, indeed, accuse her of manipulation at this point. I told her that what she was doing is abuse and that it amounts to “blatant treason” towards both me and her mate at the time. I also did threaten to expose her behavior publicly, because mental illness does not excuse such abusive behavior. Keep in mind, she said her mate RAPED her – the emotional abuse towards me doesn’t even compare to this tidbit. Because of various abusive behavior of hers, she is not welcome within the majority of the otherkin and therianthropy community; including on many communities administered by people who I don’t personally get along with.

  2. 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. You'll need to be auto-confirmed to do this, however. A few Sonic The Hedgehog emojis have been added: If you'd like to suggest some emojis for inclusion; send them to me via PM! We are now hosting our own instance of PluralKit on our Discord server. It'll eventually be linked to a web interface that allows multiple system configuration from within Kinmunity.com, so yay! Khloé is a Kinmunity-specific implementation of PluralKit and will not be compatible with the main branch; especially once we finish all the web stuff. This means that unfortunately, you'll need to create your system within Khloé. We plan on allowing other servers to use Khloé once we finish our customization of her, though! Attachments and other downloadable files should now download faster, thanks to XSendFile. Removed Features The Instant Messenger has been removed from the site; it was causing undesirable visual glitches when moving between pages that featured single-column and multi-column layouts. It was also largely unused and duplicates functionality of the personal messenger and our Discord server. Sorry about that! Maintenance Several security updates have been applied to ikari, the server that Kinmunity runs on.
  3. I like this idea; and it'll be included; thank you! All are good suggestions; so I'll be including them. Thanks again! How about a little scale from 0 being none at all to 5 being very impactful on your life? You guessed it; I'm including this! I don't wish to identify individual sites that a person participates on; but I may allow them to select between common social media outlets and then an option such as "community-specific site" to encompass things like Kinmunity, otherkin.net, TG, etc.

    Naia's Majestic Sonic Shirt Collection

    I'm known to collect more than the occasional Sonic The Hedgehog t-shirt.
  5. After reading @Velvet Wings' post, I fixed the problem that was preventing members from being able to choose between the existing privacy settings, but I had forgotten to reply here that I have done so. As far as restriction by user group goes, I'm still working on that. We recently introduced a similar option for member profiles. Are you currently using mobile or desktop? I recently (as in today) fixed the problem that prevented people from being able to set their privacy using the existing options.
  6. That would be awesome! We always accept emoticon contributions from users - send me a PM if you do!
  7. Personally, I feel that if the animal-molesting side of the community is completely separated from the rest of the community, that would be a good thing! View the full post @ Naia's Den
  8. Officially? Two months. We’ve openly liked each other for quite a while and have been friends for much longer! View the full post @ Naia's Den
  9. 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 use on Kinmunity! The Kinmunity Research platform is up and running at research.kinmunity.com and we've also made a forum titled Zoology Lab for approved academic researchers to communicate with members. We're currently working on the 2019 Alterhuman Community Survey and could use your suggestions! The Kinmunity Analytics system is now enabled; analytics will be kept on Kinmunity's servers and such data isn't sent to third parties like Google or Facebook. Analytics help us see how people are using the site and what we need to improve! Bug Fixes A bug preventing users with IPv6 addresses from connecting to the site in some cases has been resolved; please allow 24-48 hours for this DNS change to propagate. A bug fix involving the processing of account deletion requests has been fixed. Maintenance Several security updates have been applied to ikari, the server that Kinmunity runs on.
  10. LycanTheory is not the only zoophile holding the reins at The Therian Guide. Back in 2002, Jure Sah, who you all know as DustWolf, posted a thread on the original alt.horror.werewolves about neutering. He makes his sexual interest in dogs very clear, and I interpret one of his replies as “a dog I cannot fuck is a dog better dead”. Original Thread Archived Copy View the full post @ Naia's Den
  11. Hello, This is planned for implementation in the very near future! Actually, it was just implemented as of 17:14 ET!
  12. Historically, Kinmunity has been against the idea of trigger lists and forbidding discussion on an arbitrary basis. These lists are known to get long and illogical quite fast, and arbitrarily limit a community's discussion based on the needs of a few or one member. A study was done at Harvard last year in which it was found that trigger warnings actually do more harm than good for a person's mental well-being. The site does have ignore list functionality that can be used to block users who post content that makes you uncomfortable; and a user will never know that you have ignored them. I have considered the idea of adding a per-user configurable filter, but I ultimately decided against it because it could seriously fragment discussion and be detrimental to people's mental health. I hope you still feel welcome on Kinmunity and continue to use the site, and you can definitely reach out to any member of our staff team if you need anything!
  13. kinmunity: 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! That doesn’t mean we’re done improving the site or adding features - see here for more! View the full post @ Naia's Den
  14. So as I mentioned earlier, all I have actually written so far are the very basics - I'll include a screenshot below:
  15. 1. This would be difficult to measure depending how they type their answer, as obviously we don't have the ability to make a list of every related site that exists. We'll probably stick with asking them how many different communites they're a part of. 2. I love this idea; I will include! 3. The 'basic' already included questions are simply demographic questions. Approximate Age, Gender Identity, Ethnic Background, etc -- stuff usually asked by online surveys done for research. Alter-human specific questions are not included in this category. With that said, I do like your idea and will include it! 4. I love this as well, will include!
