The Otherkin Community Forums are a project of The Otherkin Community, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of metaphysical sciences and dissemination of the Otherkin identity. The message boards include discussion of otherkin, metaphysics, and the sciences. It also maintains an IRC server.

Controversy

On April 12, 2014, self-professed "proud pedophile", TheDarkEricDraven joined The Otherkin Community website under the name ApocolypseMaiden. He had previously joined this site on February 28, 2012, under the name TheDarkEricDraven, but was outed that same day as a self-professed pedophile and by July 15th, 2012 requested to be banned. Per The Otherkin Community's policy, his account was suspended at that time. Several members have protested his presence, but administrator (then moderator) Seraphyna was adamant in shutting down such protests, including giving formal warnings to two users, Noise and Kakrikoran, who were most vocal regarding it, and banning Jarandhel Dreamsinger for "offsite harassment" for reporting it on this wiki. Site-owner Clodaus chose to support that ban, and Draven's continued presence on the board, based on Seraphyna's recommendations.

Downtime

The Otherkin Community went down in May, 2015. During this time, the site's php code displayed rather than executing when visiting it. The issue was fixed and the site became publicly accessible again in mid-August, 2015.

Shut down

On November 19th, 2016, Clodaus released a public announcement [1] on closing the community. On May 9th, 2017, the forum is still online, but it's not open for new registrations. On July of 2017, the forum's security certificate expired and was not renewed; resulting in a security error when OKC is visited.
