NewKin ListPage

Intro - Guidelines - Technical info

These are Otherkin lists. Otherkin are people who believe for any reason that they are not normal humans. Many think they are other races than human, some think they are from other worlds. All races and species are welcome: dragon, elf, nymph, satyr, dwarf, gnome, angel, demon, gryphon, sidhe, faerie, fae, merfolk, hobbit, therianthrope, vampire, furry, human, etc.


NewKin is the first tier in a group of progressive lists, which includes Otherkin and KinFrontiers. You're welcome to join any or all of them. NewKin is the basic, most fundamental level of otherkin list you can find. No question is too frequently asked, nor too stupid. More advanced or speicialized topics may, however, be directed at more advanced or specific lists, so that the list can better serve the newly awakened.

List Guidelines

  1. This list is partially self-moderating. If you see something which you believe to violate any of these rules, or to be a problem in and of itself, please contact the list moderators.
  2. If the subject doesn't reflect the content of a post you're replying to, change the subject line. This is courtesy, and helps us keep track of things in the future, and will even help you to see when people are responding to *your* posts.
  3. No one-liners please (ie: posts that are much shorter than the headers it takes to get them from point-A to point-B on the internet.) One-liners are considered rude. Try to consolidate your posts (at least within a topic) or replies to a specific thread into one slightly longer post if you find yourself posting many one-liners. Alternatively, try replying privately to the person in question only. When consolidating posts, please make it clear who you are quoting and responding to as it changes through your post.
  4. Off-topic should be labeled when possible (such as "OT" in the subject line). Try not to perpetuate OT posts indefinitely, and make sure the subject lines make it clear that they are off-topic. It's also good to reply to OT posts off-list when possible. If you find yourself responding to a particularly offtopic post, try to take it offlist or to OtherkinCafe.
  5. Please limit fluff posts on the list. Fluff should be labeled "--fluff" in the subject line. "Fluff" is non-serious posts which contain no actually useful content. If you like to make a lot of fluffy comments, it's suggested that you join OtherkinCafe and redirect the jokes & fluff there instead.
  6. No flaming is allowed. That is to say, no generic inflammatory comments that generalize about a group or that specifically target an individual. In addition, talking directly about people who are not on the list would be rude. It's best to talk only about yourself and your own experiences. You get two warning for this, at moderator discretion. In some cases, people will be unsubbed and banned immediately.
  7. No judgements, cruelty, harassment, etc. Judgements, cruelty, harrassing, etc. will not be tolerated. This is a gentle, supporting environment for the newly awakened. By no means are snide remarks, jibes, underhanded comments, backhanded 'compliments' and similar allowed on the list. If someone points these out to the moderators, private warnings will be issued. After two such warnings, if it occurs a third time, your posting privledges will be changed to moderator approval only. If it happens a fourth, you will be unsubbed and banned from the list. If it's likely that the insults will be quoted or repeated to the list (such as sig files), you may find yourself moderated immediately until such a time as the moderators feel reassured that the insults will not be repeated.
  8. Please always be courteous and respectful to your fellow NewKin peers. Exceptionally sensitive or potentially offensive topics should be taken to another list which may be more appropriate to the topic. This list is intended for all ages, thus there should be no adult-eyes-only content on the list, and subjects which should be considered "mature audience only" should be taken elsewhere. No cursing, as people may have parental monitoring programs on their computers or be reading email from work with similar subject-bans.
  9. Don't respond to moderator notes on list. This is just courtesy and good Netiquette. Respond to the listowner or all moderators via List policies can be discussed and revised on list if enough people have a problem with them, but keep in mind that it will take a lot of list traffic to do so and will be frowned upon.

Hint: when replying to someone offlist, please change the subject line sufficiently so that the privacy of the email is obvious to the recipient, so that they do not accidentally send it back to the list thinking you made a mistake. ie: take out "newkin" and change it to "offlist" or "OL"
