Action Required: Platform Change


 Share

Recommended Posts

You may be aware of Kinmunity's support of the #DropKiwifarms campaign. Kiwi Farms is a hate site where members target transgender and neurodiverse people for campaigns of harassment, stalking, and doxxing. Additionally, members of fringe communities such as the furry and alterhuman community are routinely targeted by their harassment campaigns. Recently, pressure has been put on forum software company, XenForo Limited, to enforce its license agreement and prevent Kiwi Farms from using its software all together. To date, Xenforo has dodged questions and resisted any opportunity to help deplatform hate. As such, I cannot continue to use their software for projects I maintain in good conscious. Effective ASAP, Kinmunity will be moving to the Invision Power platform.

 

As a result, users should back up the following data as it may not easily carry over:

  • blog posts (don't worry; blog functionality will exist on IPS!)
  • social groups (called clubs on IPS)
  • articles (will likely be manually moved over by our staff)
  • bones purchases (will need to show proof of purchase to staff to have them restored)

The move will take place as soon as possible, and likely over the next few weeks. While we understand this may be inconvenient to some users, we are pleased with the fact that IPS is a fully fledged content management system, and therefore, will be less overhead for our staff to maintain and contain less "moving parts". At this time, I would like to thank everyone for being a member of Kinmunity and for your understanding in this matter.

 

Please, consider donating to help with the move!
