Hey everyone

I just wanted to briefly convey my thoughts on Kinmunity's recent decision to close up shop.

While Kinmunity was founded by it's owner/admin as community to directly compete against Therian Guide, I'd like to recognize that it seemed to find it's own niche within the greater community in terms of being very accommodating and welcoming to many otherkin who called it home.

Any time the community loses a resource, even a poorly managed one, it's not a good thing. People wind up feeling displaced and they lose the essential ability to reach out and connect with others who share the same experiences and struggles that they do.

I know that Therian Guide is centered mainly around the experiences of therians but I want to highlight that we do have forums for otherkin and fictionkin and we welcome everyone with open arms that takes our experiences seriously and are respectful of our rules and our members.

Anyone who feels displaced or without a home or community due to KM's closing, on behalf of the staff and owners of Therian Guide, we hope you're able to find that sense of belonging and community, that sense of home somewhere. It may not be here, in our community, but our doors are open to you if you'd like to give us a try. Smile

Sincerely

Lyc

I was sorry to see it close, as I'm pretty sure it was the last active strictly otherkin-centric forum around.

Still, there's always TG. Big Grin

Hey guys,

I know that there has been a time when we have not been the most welcoming. We all make mistakes.

For what it's worth, I'm willing to do what it takes to accommodate those from KM, who have lost their home. We will make the TG forums an Otherkin site as well as a Therian one. Clearly, there is no alternative.


That being said however, when you join us, please try to keep an open mind. On Therian Guide, we are a close-nit community, many have described us like a family. But people will not hold back if they don't believe you or if they have a problem with something that you say or do.

I don't know if this makes Therian Guide a certified Safe Space uwu™, but just be prepared to at least ask yourself if what you think you are is real and if you can explain or justify this to someone else in some way. That doesn't mean we don't care about you, you're still a part of the family, we just respect everybody's right to hold their own views.

And we really care if somebody in the family has a problem.

LP,
Dusty

Most problems are man-made.

Its sad to see a community closed, though i think TG is friendly enough to accept newcomers as TG always does.

Nobody really knows, I guess it must have just been something their admins decided.

Such things can happen, since keeping a site up has to do with time and expenses.
