On March 17th at 8 PM Central Time, I will be hosting a moderated discussion about therianthropy on IRC. The topics will be:
1) The therian community has changed a great deal since the days of alt.horror.werewolves. In the time you've been around, what changes have you seen in the community, and what ones do you think might occur in the future?
2) It's fairly common for therianthropy to impact how one relates to other humans, as well as it to influence one's social preferences. But how does therianthropy impact how you relate to other members of your theriotype's species, or of similar species?
To join, go to http://www.mibbit.com
and click "launch Mibbit client." Type in your preferred nickname and type "#stdc" into the field called "channel." Click "auth," select "password" and enter "purplemountains." Then click connect. You may have to add some random digits to the end of your nickname; Mibbit is a large server and some nicknames will already be registered. Please note that when not in use the channel is locked. This means that outside of shortly before the chat starts, during the chat, and shortly after it ends (if people linger), it will be impossible to say anything in the chat.
Chats will be archived on the Werelist, as attachments on this
thread. Also, Therian Guide and Kinmunity both made a chatbot that's will allow users on their Discord to see what's being said in the chatroom and participate.
