Make Kinmunity Great Again!

Recommended Posts

(I know it isn't song lyrics, but how could I resist? :D)

(Also, apologies if this is the wrong place...)

 

I can only speak for myself, but I feel like this community took some permanent damage after the reset. It feels like the chat is empty more often, and people are posting on the forums even less than they used to. New members come all the time, but it seems like most barely post anything. Maybe it's just me, I don't know. But that's what I see. So I want to discuss this with everyone, and see if we can come up with ideas to stimulate more talk around here. One idea might be for some of us to make a concerted effort to start a number of new on-topic threads; odds are at least some of them will stick. Thoughts?

As you know I never have done a lot of posting, and without my friends who were deleted in the reset it seems pointless most of the time to go on chat... Pomonah, Wonderlisk, Afanc, and many others were deleted and have not returned. It feels empty without them. I don't really know what I would post in the forums if I wanted to...

I know I've been a bit hesitant in posting lately. Mostly its whenever I see a thread that is similar to one that was lost in the reset I'm a bit nervous of replying because I can't remember how I replied to the original thread.

To be fair, a lot of online activity dies down in the summer months, especially for forums. For sure the reset did not help, but I can't help but think that this is also partially a natural decrease in activity.

I have been feeling quiet and not wanting to post much, but I'd be up for starting some new threads for discussions. Don't have all that many ideas, but if other people did the same, we'd probably produce a lot more activity. :) Right now it seems like, you check the new posts, and there's barely anything there, so then I know for me it means I check less and less.

I do tend to agree with Thetis. Some places do get quiet during the summer months from people going on vacation or just going outdoors, in general. I noticed several of our frequent members are going on a hiatus/vacation currently so that may have something to do with it.

 

Also, I have been more frequent in chat and group discussions, personally, but I am sure that I can find an idea that might be interesting for y'all to discuss, sometime soon. Granted, I am on a schedule where work and school take up practically my whole time, but I will try to find a way around it to maybe get the forums going. c:

Having not been a part of Kinmunity prior to the reset, I don't have much to compare to, but as a new user who still has some self-doubt, I just wanted to chip in since I'd really like to see this place survive and thrive.

 

I've posted precious few new threads, and replied to even fewer, mostly because I don't feel I have the requisite knowledge or experience to make a meaningful contribution. I'm essentially just learning to walk, and it doesn't help that of all the posts I've made, I've easily started three times that many and deleted them prior to completion. I'll get halfway through, realize that I'm not really adding anything worthwhile to the conversation, and move on silently.

 

Even now, I'm questioning whether or not to delete this post, but I suppose it's best if I continue, if only as a voice to encourage everyone to stay the course. I've seen a few other therian/otherkin forums out there, and Kinmunity is by far the most active and most polished site I've seen. If there are others, please, by all means, let me know.. I don't mind using two sites right now - I need all the input I can get. But I really like Kinmunity, and if there's anything else I can do to improve the group aside from making posts, well.. my inbox is always open.

@coffeebear Definitely stay the course, if you feel that you're able to. :) This is a nice community when it gets down to it, and though it's quiet now, I don't think it's in danger of dying. A newcomer's voice is just as welcome. Asking questions, exploring who you are, that's participating and that's just as important as what people who've been here a long time may have to write. If anything, you have newer things to say! I hope that you can feel comfortable to keep your posts up.

Any contributions to the site are helpful. And even if you don't think you're too knowledgeable in a topic, reply anyway. Tell us your thoughts, ask questions, etc. So far I know I at least appreciate what you've contributed so far. And you're right, this is probably the best kin site out there right now.

I wish I could contribute more. I am trying. I have made a few groups, not sure if that will help. I will see what I can do.

I forgot to add this and I just remembered. It's also summer time and internet use drops during the summer. It's a lot more apparent on places like secondlife then a forum however. Thought I'd add that in.
