  Ban appeal procedure
Posted by: DustWolf - 2019-04-27 14:51 - No Replies

Hello everybody,

A ban appeal procedure is something we set up with the TG staff a while ago, but I feel we never talked about it publicly enough, though it has been published.

Essentially, there are 48 people currently banned on Therian Guide.

If any of them feels like they have been banned unjustly or think that the reasons why they were banned are no longer relevant, they can appeal the ban by writing an email to the staff at:

Code:
appeal.ban@therian-guide.com

The staff will then discuss and decide, which may take several days. If the request is justified and we think our conditions have been fulfilled, the ban will be reversed.

The email address can also be used to ask for clarifications regarding the ban.

However the staff are under no obligation to revoke any ban and we make no guarantees.


Automated bans, where the page does not load are not covered here, but those should resolve themselves within 24 hours automatically.

LP,
Dusty

  Discord Outage
Posted by: coffeebear - 2019-04-19 14:46 - Replies (2)

So!

Last night, Lycan tried to transfer ownership of the Discord server to Dustwolf, but his attempt was unsuccessful. For the time being, then, our Discord server is out of commission. We're working with Discord technical support to recover it, though it may take a few days.

For the time being, the site's Shoutbox still works quite well, though!

And of course, if you've had a good topic in the back of your mind for some time, now's a good time to start a thread on it, also.

Please PM us if you have any questions, sorry for the downtime, and we'll keep you posted.

========== ========== ========== ========== ==========

We're back!

Check the Discord thread for the current invite - bots aren't completely operational yet, so please remember to let us know your TG username when you arrive in the server.

Thanks for your patience!

  2018 Yearbook Released!
Posted by: PinkDolphin - 2019-04-13 18:01 - Replies (18)

I'm here to present the Official 2018 Therian Guide Yearbook to you!

Are you excited to see all the jokes, pictures, achievements and shenanigans of 2018? Are you curious about what the members of Therian Guide have done this year or are wanting to share with you?



It has been rough the past months to complete this yearbook, but with special thanks to @DustWolf, @LycanTheory and @Zefer Nezumi for their input, to @Hati for the cover image, and many more who helped here and there when I asked for some tips or ideas.. We're now able to look through the year of 2018 here on Therian Guide, and remember fun times and loveable members!

I also want to grab this chance with both paws to both announce that this yearbook includes Entire 2018 until April 2019.
And to offer my apologies for having finished it so late.

By this I'm able to offer you a PDF (see link ^) of the 2018 yearbook, images and content should all be free to use for anything that isn't being made profit of. If you want to, you can print out the yearbook at some local book company, but we do not offer this option as a site at this time.

Just like last time We'd love to ask you a few questions after you've read the book:

- What was your favourite part of the yearbook and why?
- What was your least favourite part and why?
- What else do you think should have been added to the yearbook? Did we miss anything?
- What was your favorite moment of 2018 on Therian Guide?

Just like last time.. I have a song for you to listen. A message I'd love to tell to entire Therian Guide and all it's members. You're not obligated to listen, but it's just a fun little extra.




Nobody knows how much I love you
Nobody knows how much I care
There's a big ol'e world, let's get out there and live it
Walking next to you may seem to be
just another little thing in the world you see
But the truth is it just means so much to me

Enjoy!

WOOF!
PD

  Apology

Hello,

This was posted on my journal last month, but I'm putting it in an announcement to help clear things up and to work on moving on from those events.





Hello everybody,

In the days before all this drama happened, I screwed up.

I made a few very mean and unjustified comments towards TG member Vintage. I was also very mean towards Zefer who tried to do his job as a mod. And I unjustly banned Azi and Xia.

I later abused my admin powers and deleted my messages in the attempt of reducing the consequences of my actions. I have also gaslighted the people who were hurt by my actions.

The next day, LycanTheory found the aftermath and tried to put a stop to it, so he banned my account for a week and made a post about my behaviour on the staff forums. I again abused my access to the TG database, to change what Lycan’s post said and to reverse and later remove the ban.

While I was careful not to do any permanent technical damage to TG with my actions, where I was clearly able to, this does not make my behaviour acceptable. I admit to everything that I have done and I wish to apologize to all those whom my actions affected.

This is not simply me saying “I’m sorry” because I have to. Or words on a screen. I am sorry and I know what I did, and how I treated my actions, was wrong. I hope you can forgive me, and more importantly, I hope my apology heals some of what I have destroyed.


The reasons for my actions were emotional.

As you may know, I take care of many of the technical chores that maintain TG. I have a great sense of responsibility and I have always been careful to be very professional about how I manage TG.

However, TG is not just a job to me, it is also a home. And in my home, here on the other side of the world in my country, it is expected that if you value what somebody does, you show this by looking for what burdens them and working to make them more comfortable.

I have had a lot of people tell me, that they value what I do for TG, but for years I was alone with my problems of managing TG, despite every effort to involve the others on the staff. I’m a pack animal and I hate being alone.
But there are completely understandable reasons for why I was alone: TG staff are mostly adults and we all tend to have very little time to spare after work and obligations, for everything we would like to do. Life has been going tougher for everybody on the staff for a while now, and everybody has had very little time to come to TG and help me.

I have been trying to tell people in my own way, what I have been going through, and to passively encourage them, to show me the kind of support I expected for all my hard work in accordance with my culture, but nothing has ever improved.

When finally, a few people on the staff brought up how much they hate the place where I live, the EU, my mind skipped ahead with the realization that there is probably nobody here, who can understand my feelings (most TG members are from the USA, or admire the USA culture more than their own). So I became unprofessional and did what I did.

These reasons do not excuse what I did, but hopefully they do explain it.


On the staff we have decided together that for the future we need to change some things, so that this doesn’t happen again. I will leave it to the others, who did the most to help resolve this, to explain it all to you.

For me personally, I love you. I have not stopped caring while I acted as I did. TG is one of the most important things to me, as almost every friend I have is here.

As I have said, in my culture, you show others you appreciate them, by working to take care of what they need; so I plan to continue to do this, when the others on the staff allow me to.


Again I am sorry for everything and I hope you still feel at home here with us.

LP,
Dusty

  Therian talk #6 - Theriomythics
Posted by: DustWolf - 2019-02-24 22:31 - Replies (1)

Hey all,

We're a little late but a new Therian Talk is finally up! Smile

Interviewers:
@Zefer Nezumi
@DustWolf

Interviewee: @Shuual

Zefer and myself interview Shuual about his Theriomythic identity. Shuual identifies as and experiences being a kitsune. Through the conversation, I learned that Theriomythics are a separate group from both Therians and Otherkin, however they more closely connect to the experiences of Therians.
