We need otherkin related meetings again

Yups... made my last post here almost one year ago, since I haven't been into LJ much as it's been silent and inactive. Since the Kitsuhana forum was taken down, I'm guessing this is currently the best place where everyone can get to talk together except IRC. But alongside that this place would really need more activity and people talking here.

Either way, I noticed that over the last months things have been getting really silent, and I don't mean just this LJ community. While in the past we always used to have a lot of chats about kitsune and many interesting subjects, today we almost never have anything more then random chats on IRC when someone is actually there. I find this a sad thing, as we could learn a lot if we spent more time together to discuss. Don't take it as complaining now, I know people are busy irl and they are trying to find more time for their kin family and friends, but still I think many would actually agree on this.

I remember that last year, miss alynna tried to run a few discussion panels on Second Life every week at a certain hour. Even if some got boring, it used to be quite interesting and we got to talk about quite a few things. That's why I thought it's probably time we think about having weekly, daily or even monthly meetings once again to discuss about otherkin, kitsune, magic and related. We could do this on IRC, on Second Life again (though SL is not what it used to be any more right now) or anywhere else on a stable and comfortable chat system.

The most important thing would be making sure that such discussion will not die again, and we would keep having them every time at the chosen hour and date. But yeah... for now I'd like to know what everyone here thinks about running such meetings again, when most people would have the free time to be online for this. What do you think?

Well new to the community but I am on the grid in SL and think that meetings there could be quite interesting. Shame that I missed the ones before. I'm pretty much available whenever...though usually a night owl.

I haven't used IRC in ages....but then again maybe I should look into it again.
IRC is very easy to setup and get on, and could indeed be one of the best choices for this. Second Life... I don't really think it's the best place any more unless we use the OpenSim server-side (my idea actually), as from what I remember there are still issues with the Lindens who administer the Linden grid 'beating' on users and such.

If anyone else has any ideas about this please feel free to comment here and tell us what you think. Luckily we can find a date and hour sometime soon. It would help many of us a lot to have such organized discussions about ourselves again.
Ok... as a bump to revive this topic; I believe I found the best place to do such a thing in. As some otherkin already know, I made a manual copy of the Kitsuhana sim on Second Life that Alynna used to run, on OpenSim. There aren't any furry avatars there yet but I remade the panel where the spiritual discussion used to take place at and other important places. More info can be read here http://forums.kitsuhana.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=267 if anyone is interested. If you have any other ideas on this, please don't be shy to comment on this entry and tell us.
