Minor Updates (09/06/2019)

As usual, we've been hard at work behind the scenes working to improve Kinmunity and to add new features for everybody to enjoy. These updates are relatively minor, but they should improve the experience for all of our users. 

New features

  • Kinmunity <-> Wolf Howl Association


    You are now able to link your Kinmunity and Wolf Howl accounts. 

    1. Head over to your Kinmunity profile and edit it. You will notice an "Affiliated Accounts" section. Enter your Wolf Howl username there without the @ symbol in front. (Go to https://www.kinmunity.com/settings/ and click the "Edit Profile" link on the right.
    2. Go to your Wolf Howl profile and under profile metadata, enter "Kinmunity" as the title and a link to your Kinmunity proflile as the value. (Go to https://wolfhowl.me/settings/profile and do this in your "Profile metadata" section.)
    3. On your Wolf Howl profile, the link to your Kinmunity profile will be highlighted in green and have a verified checkmark next to it. Your accounts are officially associated. Congrats!

[*]KinSpots Update

  • Members are no longer listed and separated by usergroup. This was changed because we felt it could possibly subject staff members, VIPs, and gold donors to unnecessary attention. Instead, you will now see users you follow in their own little area. This can potentially help you find friends to go to cons with and such!
  • Privacy enforcement has been enabled. Even if you provide your entire address to the KinSpots system, it will now be hidden from view. This change has been suggested for quite a while by our users in order to protect privacy. This may result in slightly inaccurate listings (a user appearing to live on the north side of a town, rather than the south side, for example) but we feel it is a worthwhile trade off for user privacy and still allows visualization of where others are for planning meetups and such!
  • KinSpots now show certain profile information on the pop-up view. Currently this includes: gender identity, pronouns, and primary identity. This will hopefully help you find others like you to connect with at a glance. Remember: you can always view more from their profile.

[*]Embassy Update

  • Sites which have a relationship with our embassy have been "featured" in the links directory. The last five admissions to our program are now also listed on the index page of the embassy.
  • The embassy index page has been updated and now shows: last 5 admissions to the program, latest 5 security threats, latest fediverse blocking advisories, news from Kinmunity, and the latest affairs within our communities.
  • Speaking of the fediverse block list, that is now a thing. We publicly list servers within the fediverse that we advise blocking. The list can be accessed here. Only ambassadors and Kinmunity staff can add to it, though! 

Other announcements

  • We are no longer affiliated with Plural Hub

    Plural Hub implemented a policy that gives its staff members the ability to decide who may and may not have staff status on affiliate sites. As an autonomous resource, this is not something Kinmunity can consent to. As such, we have delisted with them.

[*]We have received $42.04 out of the $100.00 required to renew our IPS license. We only need $57.96 more to reach our goal! If we reach it within the next three days, everybody who has donated for it will receive VIP Status for one year, even if you've only donated a dollar!

Thank you! I hope everybody continues to enjoy the site; let me know if there's anything I can do for you!
