Quote from: InannaEloah on January 19, 2017, 01:10:00 PMI originally got involved with this site because I pretty much left the Otherkin community altogether and felt like I should at least try to reconnect. Most of my experience with the Otherkin community has, in fact, been highly negative, because my kintype is unusual and I've had some very, shall we say unusual experiences since my Awakening when compared with most other people in the community. My beliefs are also what some folks would call "fluffy" (basically a Neo-Pagan replacement for the Catholic Christian term "Heretical"). I've taken a lot of flak over the years for my differences of opinion from the majority, and as such it's kinda hard for me to really get into discussions here. Even with all that, though, I do still check the forums, usually several times a day to see if anyone's said anything.One thing I've noticed over the years is that Otherkin forums tend to be silent for long periods of time, and then you get one or two forums posts in a space of a few weeks and then you're back to months on end of silence. It's not just this site that does it, but every Otherkin site I've ever been on (The original Dragon-Realms, Draconity.org, Draconic.com, etc.). I've heard about the so-called "glory days" of the Otherkin community back when it was super active and so on, but that kind of ended with the demise of Rashan's forum, and IIRC, my Awakening took place just a couple months after that site shut down. So I've never actually experienced the aforementioned "glory days," and the months of silence followed by a few days of activity followed by further months of silence in the Otherkin community is really all I've ever experienced of it.When it comes right down to what I want, though... honestly, I just want an open forum where I can discuss my experiences and thoughts without feeling like a total idiot. The way my experiences in life have been, I might never find a place like that especially in the Otherkin community, but at the very least I can hope, and keep trying. Also, I've met some nice people in the community and I rather miss them, so I'm here.
