Site Updates (5/30/22)

Recommended Posts

It's update time again! It might seem like we've been quiet, but behind the scenes, the Kinmunity administration team has been working on many improvements to the site. There's actually too many improvements to fully list, but I'm going to do my best to try and cover the most important ones. The following improvements, enhancements, security updates, and bug fixes have been made to the site:

  • Performed a distribution upgrade to Minatsuki, upgrading all back-end components for Kinmunity.
  • Upgraded to PHP 8.1.
    • Increased limits in php.ini in order to ensure smoother performance across Kinmunity.

    [*]Re-enabled the dark theme (British Columbia Wolf) after much debugging.

    [*]Improved abuse detection within FangAI to stop spammers, trolls, and unwelcome guests. (curious about how it works?)

We rely heavily on user suggestions when performing site updates, after all, Kinmunity would be nothing without the people who use it every day. As such, I'm pleased to announce that the following suggestions made by our users were implemented during this update cycle:

We'll be implementing the following suggestions soon, once we have the appropriate artwork for them:

Introducing Howlr!

And, we've saved the biggest announcement for last. The team at Kinmunity has launched Howlr! Howlr is a fediverse social networking instance for all, with a primary focus on serving niche and alternative lifestyle communities. Our site aims to both give users the ability to speak freely about a number of topics, including controversial ones, as well as provide a safe-space free from harassment and unwelcome behavior. Starting today, you can link your Kinmunity and Howlr accounts together in your Kinmunity profile!
