Name:Therians on Dreamwidth
Posting Access:All Members
Welcome to the Therian community for Dreamwidth!

I. For anyone new to the community, I would appreciate it if you would make a post to introduce yourself so that we can start getting to know each other.
Please share your:

Name that you prefer (doesn't have to be your real name):


Therian/Otherkin or just curious:

Theriotype/Kin Type:

How long have you known that you're a Therian/Otherkin:

Other sites you like to hang out at (optional):

Anything else you'd like to say about yourself (optional):

II. As this community develops, I'll try to develop the profile page better. In the meantime, just a couple things to remember:

1: This is a community for Therians and Otherkin to interact in peace. I don't want any fighting, bashing, flaming, trolling, etc. I don't expect anyone to act uptight to uphold the rules, but I don't see why discussions can't occur in a peaceable, mature manner.

2: I want this to be a safe place for any new Therians to be able to ask questions without being raked over the coals like they should have already known better. So please, please PLEASE DO NOT sneer at them if they ask questions about stuff that the more experienced ones already know about. It doesn't matter if we think the question is ridiculous. Questions that we may think to be ridiculous does NOT make anyone a poser, it just means that they don't know. So if you can't bring yourself to answer a question without mass amounts of scorn, then don't bother.

3: In regards to the more controversial topics such as Physical Shifting: If you can't be civil and maintain a debate without getting nasty, then don't bother. Some people think that Physical Shifting is possible and others don't. It's as simple as that and it's not THAT big of a deal. Don't get nasty; agree to disagree if you start feeling pissy and then just move on, please.

4: I know it can be difficult to know what to talk about, but not everything HAS to be about Therianthropy/Otherkin. I know that being Therian/Otherkin doesn't comprise EVERYTHING you are as a person and, again, this is a community for Therians to meet, interact, and get to know each other. So if you want to vent to us, try to get advice about anything, etc., those posts are more than welcome. I would like to try to keep this community decently active, so I would very much appreciate it if y'all would keep the lurking to a minimum and try to post on a relatively regular basis. ^_^

If I'm coming across like a real hard-ass, I don't mean to. I would just like for this community to be as peaceable and friendly as possible and I'd really like to keep the drama to a minimum.
