Recently, across both the community and politics, gender identity seems to be a hot topic ~ and not always in such a positive light. In this article, we hope to share some of our personal experiences along with share some information on gender identity all in one place. We’ll also be tackling the ever so common phrase “There’s Only 2 Genders”.
As you may or may not know, Neko Palace is an all inclusive community. This means we accept those of all genders. No exceptions. Everyone is welcomed, and loved. Even our Palace Pets have all sorts of gender identities - and that’s okay!
Before we get into all the nitty gritty stuff, we thought we’d introduce ourselves and share our personal stories with you guys! (As no two stories are really the same!)
The Neko Palace Community Forum is officially here!
We managed to get all the funds together thanks to our raffle and all the kind donations, however unfortunately there was a slight issue when it came to affording hosting...
After a few stressful weeks trying to afford it and figure out how to do all this extra coding stuff and what we actually needed, the forum was finally up on the run!
Over on the forum, you can sign up in just a couple minutes.
Once you've verified your account via email, you can customise your profile a little bit, write a little bio and introduce yourself to the family!
From there on, you're an official member of this little neko family 💜.
On the forum you can join in the conversations, offer advice and ask for it, show off your new gear and post your art and crafts.
You can also make friends over on the forum which you can directly message straight through the website itself. And if theres ever a problem? Just click the report button available and explain the circumstances - or message a member of staff directly.
We have some special goodies out so far;
If you donate more than $5 towards the forum to keep it up and running and so we can look into new features ~ you get a cute little "supporter" banner for your profile.
There are also 2 LGBT+ banners you can buy for $1 each to show off your pride! \^o^/
In the future we'd like to add some banners for those who are other pet types like puppies and bunnys too.
Theres so much to do and lots in store ~ and you get to help shape our future by joining up in the early stages!c:
One of our goals is to hit 50 members, several which are active daily - and, we also expect to use this forum as a good way to recruit new content creators for Neko Palace.
Thank you so much for all the support lately, we honestly wouldn't have even been able to get anywhere near here without the help of the community as a whole, so a huuge thank you to everyone involved!
So let’s introduce Echo Hime and Dakumeow to the readers!
Meet Echo AKA Bastet, A 23yo kitten living in Japan! She’s also a proud owner of a rescue kitty named Luna (for all those sailor moon fans you can fangirl now!), Has a secret admiration for Egyptian culture and is EXCITED to be collabing with Daku! Daku is a 34yo Australian kitten who adores Japan & Korean styles, Dj’s in her spare time and has a unique obsession with alpacas! And cannot believe she is collabing with one of her kitten idols, Echo!
Thank you! Now let’s get into the real meaty stuff! THE QUESTIONS!
Hello everyone, today I thought it would be a good idea to discuss how to help/find help for people in various different crisis situations, as well as where you yourself can find help if you need it. I'm going to be going into a couple different situations and discussing things you can do to help. For some of this I'll be talking from own personal experience, and it's important to be aware that different situations call for different things and not everyone is going to go through things the same way.
