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!
Phwah! Thank you so much for all the applications. We've been in contact with all successful candidates and now have our kitten team 💜
Unfortunately we couldn't accept everyone, but there may be a chance in the future!

Neko Palace is having a live group chat event! We'll be using our live chat feature to talk with you guys.
We held a poll for the last week and a half to decide a time most convenient and the most voted for answer was 4pm GMT (March 18th).
This chat is for all of us to get to know each other and to just make friends. Hopefully, there'll be a handful of Palace Pets + Visitors popping in to chat (hmph, we really need to pick a name for you guys!). Depending on how many turn up, the chat may remain active for quite a while.
Some Palace Pets will have moderator abilities just to make sure theres no bullying etc going on. Apart from this, you're allowed to talk freely but remember this site is 14+ and open to the public so please please please keep it SFW(safe for work).
We have set a specific date for us all to gather in the chat, because, although the chat is always there, theres not always multiple people online at any one time to talk with. So hopefully this will allow you to talk to each other and get to know each other a little better c:
We hope you pop by to join us for a chat \^o^/! Please spread the word - the more the merrier!
You asked for it, you got it!
Applications are officially open again, with yet again...a new application form
Neko Palace turned 6 months old on the 1st February 2017, and I'm surprised it lasted this long. I mean, we came across so many problems along the way, such as my laptop breaking for 4 weeks meaning I could only post articles, getting a full time work experience placement leaving me with minimal time to spend on Neko Palace, financial issues, lack of content issues...but somehow we still managed to pull through.
Neko Palace is here to wish you a happy Christmas!💜
We'll also start reviewing the applications soon, but don't worry theres still 6 days to send in your application! We'll be selecting around 20 kittens and all will be contacted during January, if you don't hear back from us by February you more than likely havn't made it through, BUT, there'll be chances for you to re-apply in the future! Good luck to everyone that applied \^o^/ and Merry Christmas!
Today is one month since the Neko Palace started! Since then we've managed to reach 1,000 views!
After one month, I feel like everyone has had a little taste of what this site is about, how it runs, and enough time to form an opinion of the site.
So I've created an anonymous survey to help find out the opinions of everyone and improvement tips! From both the viewers and the kittens of the site.
Although 1,000 views in 1 month is amazing, I still hope the site can continue to grow and progress into something much better.
Survey can be found here.

''The Neko Palace, is a community for kitten players. The site will consist of blog posts and modelling/photosets, more things may come along as the site grows as a whole.
I hope this site appeals to both masters/owners and kittens, however, only kittens can apply to become apart of the site.
Although only kittens can become apart of the site so far, masters/owners can guest write blog posts/articles for the site so that there are posts from a master standpoint as well.
Our kittens come in all shapes and sizes and gender, and neither of them things will make you less likely to be accepted as a kitten.
On the "kittens" page, kittens will be listed in how regularly they interact with the site and our social medias. (today however, and the near future, they are currently listed as who applied first).
We have other social medias that you can keep in contact with us on,
our Tumblr : NekoPalace
and our Instagram: NekoPalaceSite
I tried to keep this introduction 'brief' but detailed, and I look forward to see whats in stall for this site!
