    Here is what concerns me about this:
    1. How long have you been in the community? Do you know enough about it to be answering questions, especially with the correct information?
    2. Wearing ears in the video. Most therians don't wear ears/tails/what have you and many people who do aren't therians. Wearing such items can give people the impression and further the stereotype that therians are furries.
    3. Will the advice be productive or will it be coddling, not encouraging critical thought, etc.?

    While I see potential here, I'm also aware of what most otherkin channels are like...and that doesn't give me much hope...

    I can agree with your concerns, and I'll answer each question with numbers as you did.

    1. I have been catkin basically all my life, so I can understand and give actual educated advice. Though please keep in mind I will not be the only one. Two other members who have been here longer on both on that channel as well.
    2. Yes I did where ears in the video to represent myself as a cat, not as a furry. I wasn't attempting to mess anything up for anyone. I just read a blog on here recently that stated "It's weird for people now to see me without my ear headband on." It gave me the impression that maybe to appeal to some otherkin I could wear my own headband. If it really is a large deal then I will not do so anymore.
    3. Honestly I am not sure. I want to comfort and give encouragement. Another member may want to give actual concrete advice and such. I guess you would just have to wait a see.

    Please do give us a chance. We are willing to tweak our ways of doing things to help the community.

    I liked the ears, they look awesome.
    I'm definitely curious about this channel, looking forward to new videos.

    The channel does seem interesting for a start. With more development, it has potential to become a nice channel to check out.

    Good luck!

    1. I have also known I was non-human all my life but have been active in the community for a few months straight now.
    2. I wear ears and a tail myself but I'll try not to wear them in my videos on the channel.
    3. I will be doing terminolgy and de-bunking myths about the community. I'd actually like if people could send my question or topics they want me to cover.

    1. While age is not an indicator of quality, will older members within the community be participating in your channel? I have found that the majority of Therian-related YouTube channels are run by individuals under the age of eighteen.

    2. The channel is titled "Catmunity Squad", and I am not a fan of this name because it seems like it was 'inspired' by the name of our site. However, that aside, are the members of the channel exclusively feline therians, and does the content cater to felines more so, or is it for all therians/otherkin?

    Just at the moment it only has people under 18 but we are hoping to expand. And if you would like we can change our name if you feel it's too close to Kinmunity.

    I'm going to try to answer as well. In numbered order as I did before.

    1. We are all under 18 as of right now, but we are allowing new members of high age to come. I actually have someone in mind.
    2. We used Catmunity to tie into Kinmunity, which we can of course change. And it is ran by catkin as of right now, but we will be focusing around all kintypes.

    In this case, I would prefer you change the name as it is not a project the site has official involvement in.

    We subscribed. We've been around/lurking/watching the therian community on Youtube since 2009 so please forgive our system if we are a little... wary. We've seen some good channels/videos tackle therianthropy (or otherkin in general), and we've also seen lots of videos which are either problematic or just very misinformed. Our system recommends thoroughly double-checking your research/facts for every topic to try to make sure nothing misinformed is added. Plus, just be careful what you say as it could lead to misinformation. (For example, without thinking its easy to accidentally say "identify with" vs "identity as" or whatnot.) So, best wishes, and please be careful.

    We promise to never post a video without the proper research. It would be very dumb of us to even try to use only our resources. We will try to help as much as we can, but I will remind this to our users that we are only a few people, and that if they do take our information as completely concrete advice then that is on them.
