recommend a forum!
this is going to be a list of places our members like and recommend - if you know a forum or website about otherkin, spirituality, magic, etc., please post it in a response, including a short description, and rate it with 0-5 stars. of course, others can comment on the same site and rate it the way they want.

while it is allowed to disagree on another person's opinion, please don't use this thread for discussing the pros and cons of a site. this is merely a summary. also, please don't post "not recommended" sites.

thank you!

Re: recommend a forum!
Should we include this forum? lol, well if we do I give it <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> .

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.trueformwithin.org">http://www.trueformwithin.org</a><!-- m --> TFW is a site much like this one in nature. It's a forum with an onsite chat (that no one really uses) and contains a mainsite with articles, a booklist, and that sort of basic information stuff. It's not as active as this forum and slightly less scientific in approach, but I still enjoy it. <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: -->

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.otherkincommunity.net">http://www.otherkincommunity.net</a><!-- m --> OKC again is a forum with a main page containing a wiki and an onsite and IRC chat. They have some articles in their forum and on the wiki. It's a bit too fluff tolerant at times, but overall it's a pretty good site. <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: -->

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.otherkinalliance.org">http://www.otherkinalliance.org</a><!-- m --> OKA is another forum with a mainsite containing articles on basic otherkin topics. It also has an article section of the forum (just like pretty much every forum listed so far). It's not very fluff tolerant, but some people have had personal issues with some of the site staff. Personally I like OKA and haven't had any problems with it. <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: -->

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.otherkin.com">http://www.otherkin.com</a><!-- m --> OK.com is a site I had belonged to for over a year. It takes a more scientific approach to otherkin in general, but also ascribes to the support of the belief in ageless and inheritor vampires. Some of the staff seem more concerned with vampire related information and their sister site (which is dedicated to vampires) than OK.com. It's also my personal opinion that they've become far too ban happy recently, banning people for spelling errors, not letting people explain, and fabricating information to get rid of members that some of admins don't particularly like. Up until recently I would've given this site 4 stars, but due to recent events (many of which happened after the site crashed and all information was lost) it's dropped to about <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: -->

EDIT: Yay! Thanks Kahoku <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

<!-- w --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.werelist.com">www.werelist.com</a><!-- w --> Werelist is mainly a forum at the moment and is focused on therians. Again they take a scientific approach and do not support the formation of "packs" or physical shifting. It has an article section and the were library is a related forum full of info. I give werelist <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: -->

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.otherkinalliance.org">http://www.otherkinalliance.org</a><!-- m --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: -->
A very good site with a good collection of articles and information, as well as an active forum with a diverse member base. OKA tries to balance tolerance with logic, so it may appear a bit more lenient than OKP regarding claims.

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.trueformwithin.org">http://www.trueformwithin.org</a><!-- m --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: -->
A fairly decent site which hosts a good collection of information. Catered more towards vampires and therians, but all otherkin are welcome. Would probably get five stars if they could only motivate me to post more.

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.otherkin.com">http://www.otherkin.com</a><!-- m --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: -->
A science-based site which makes up for it's questionable mainsite information with a unique and enjoyable member base and discussion style. Not for the weak, Ok.com is a good place to if you aren't afraid to join the snarky side.

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.otherkincommunity.net">http://www.otherkincommunity.net</a><!-- m --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: -->
A forum which has quite a bit of good information, but is ultimately a bit too tolerant for those of us who prefer a fluff-free forum environment.

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://afswattf.synthasite.com">http://afswattf.synthasite.com</a><!-- m --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: -->
A superb fluff-hunting site put together by some particularly ambitious and hilarious Ok.com regulars. The AFSWATTF will give you laughs and shocks, sometimes at the same time.

It's a decent and large and very open site that tries to balance logic with friendliness. I chose to leave that forum however as it has a tendency to get bogged down in of topic antics and in-jokes.

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.trueformwithin.org">http://www.trueformwithin.org</a><!-- m --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: -->
Good site, more therian and vamp oriented than most places, but of the rather more serious flavor. Quite enjoyable.

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.otherkincommunity.net">http://www.otherkincommunity.net</a><!-- m --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: --> 1/2
Has a mix of fluffballs and serious folk, more of one than the other. But there are some gems that make the place worth the time.

Lots of information for various kin-types, though mostly therians and dragons are the ones I mostly see. It's also a non-profit organization now.

This site is relatively new with only about 30 people, but they're all smart and seem to have their heads on straight. There aren't that many topics yet, but it'll hopefully build up with more people.

It's a really great and friendly site. A place to where you chat and gather with others. And also many other things.

Great newer little Otherkin/Therian site. The forum is run by a dedicated Otherkin, who also happens to be a friend of mine.
The only downside is that because it's new, there aren't that many members--and because of that, there isn't as much activity as I'd like. c:
