:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred: When you send a Join Request :bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:

:star: Those who do not submit a theriotype and/or Otherkin species with their request you will not be accepted into the group!

:star: Also, please be specific and include your sub-species (Grey Wolf / Forest Dragon) if you have one. This prevents us here at TheriansONdA from having to continuously ask questions and speeds up your membership process.

Why do I need to include this in my join request?

We list our members alphabetically by their species classification on our Member's Listing. This helps us at TheriansONdA keep track of our members and allows members to better connect with one another.

    Submitted a deviation on June 15th, 2012
Hello everyone! :wave:

My, it's been a while hasn't it? I've had a lot to get accomplished off the site, both good and bad.

DeviantArt has unveiled a new feature, called Mentioning. As you may or may not know, we keep a Member's List here at :icontheriansonda:. It really needs to be cleaned up quite a bit, and it's been on my to-do list for quite some time. We are one of the bigger Therianthropy groups here on dA, but sometimes people come and go. And there's a good handful of people who are still on it that I still have to remove who decided to part with us for whatever reasons they desired. I take full responsibility for not keeping it completely updated, so you can chalk it up to either laziness or need to be doing other things. I'll let you be the judge on that. :)

But I'm just curious as to if, when I update the Member's List (like I did just now with quite a few new members!) if everyone in the list will get an aformentioned "Mention" every time I update it...

If so, this may end up being a nagging, less-than-desireable problem, and I may have to re-work the Member's List when I do get around to fully updating it to prevent this.

I apologize for my absence; my laptop died and I also ran out of bandwidth due to updating a different laptop. I try to keep personal problems out of TheriansONdA, but in this case I have no choice but to bring them to light.
I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused any of you, and I'll try to be more active in the future. I still have plans that I want to fulfill before the year is out, if I can get around to it.

Anyways, thanks for being a member of TheriansONdA!

If there's anything you'd like for us to do or change, just let us know.

Thank you!

:bulletblack::bulletred: Welcome :bulletred::bulletblack:

TheriansONdA  is a group here on :devart: for Therianthropes, or therians, (and Otherkin) of all shapes, sizes and species to come together and embrace their more wild side. We are a place to view art, share thoughts and opinions, contact fellow therians or simply chillax. Please feel free to kick off your shoes, take a seat, grab a glass of your favorite beverage and ultimately make yourselves at home!
Just be sure you wipe your paws off at the door! :)
Our group also welcomes one an all, unbiased to subjects such as religion which can be controversial in the therian/otherkin communities. We also encourage those new to the therian/otherkin community, and those who are shy or withdrawn about their therianthropy/otherkin-ness to feel completely comfortable joining as well.
We bark, squeak, cry and squawk here but never bite!

:bulletblack::bulletorange: What exactly is Therianthropy? :bulletorange::bulletblack:

Search Therianthropy on the internet and you can find over 22,000 different entries, all with their own definition of the word. Ask a group of Therianthropes and they might not even give you a cohesive answer to this question.
But simple terms, Therianthrope is a term used to describe a person who believes that either mentally or spiritually, part of themselves is not human but animal.
The animal or creature a therian identifies themselves with, called a theriotype, can range from an animal as small as a sparrow to a behemoth blue whale. Most therians are mammals and the most common theriotype is that of a wolf, which is said to account for over half of the online community. A therian may also have more than one theriotype and are considered by some to be "Poly-weres" or Polymorphs.
Therians often refers to themselves as "Weres" though not all therianthropes agree with the name. Some feel it implies a physical transformation, such as does the term Lycanthropy, which is often avoided as well.
Therianthropy is also not to be confused with Otherkin, which consist of mythological creatures and beings (such as fairies and gryphons) though the two are closely related.

:bulletblue::bulletyellow: Join us on social media! Tumblr! & Twitter! :bulletyellow::bulletblue:

If you'd like your artwork to not be broadcast on our Tumblr or Twitter accounts, just let us know and you will be put on an Exempt List.

:bulletblack::bulletgreen: Our Members :bulletgreen::bulletblack:

If you wish to join, please read below.
Everyone please wish our newest members a warm welcome!
And as always our all of our members are listed here.

:bulletblack::bulletblue: To Join :bulletblue::bulletblack:

Send in a request and, almost always, it will be approved. If sending in requests isn't your cup of tea drop a note or message and we'll send you an invite. Please note you must be a therian or otherkin to join. And be sure to include your theriotype or otherkin species {and sub-species if necessary} somewhere in your message as we list our members this way.

Those who do not submit a theriotype and/or theriotypes with their request you will not be accepted into the group! You will be asked once for your theriotype and without a response within a week your request will be denied.

You may always submit another request afterwards but we need a theriotype to match to your username on our Members List. As, again, we list (and keep track of) our members by their theriotype. And, remember, if you're not exactly sure you want your theriotype out for public viewing our Members List is linked in our journal a part of our 'Blog' archives. We don't exactly flaunt our member's personal information.

:bulletblack::bulletpurple: Deviation Submissions and Favorites :bulletpurple::bulletblack:

There is no limit to the number of deviations a member can submit in a day.

We may eventually set a limit if our number of members grows exponentially but for the time being, no.
All that we ask is that the deviation be therian-related, including a human and/or animal.
It would also be helpful, yet not necessary, if members would submit there deviations to the proper categories.
Our categories are Photography, Digital Art, Traditional Art, Writing and Contest Entries.
If the category you wish to submit to please notify an administrator (either Onyx-Tigeress or GekkouKitsune) and we will create the category for you.
Our favorites are also unlimited to the number suggested per person per day.
Again, the deviations must be in some way therian-related and sorting into the proper category would also be helpful.
Our favorites categories are Digital Art, Traditional Art, Photography, Symbols, and Stamps.
If you believe a category is missing from our listing, again, contact one of our administrators.

I was scrolling through the chats today and happened to notice there are TONS of therian/otherkin chatrooms but none of them are ever actually active. I was wondering if this group had a chat room on Deviantart at all and possibly ask how active it is? :)
GekkouKitsune Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Not currently, no. If we had a chat, I would want someone there to monitor it in case something were to go wrong. Personally I'm quite busy these days compared to days of old, so I wouldn't be able to do it. However, such a thing has been near the top of our list of "possibilities," so you may see a chat sometime in the future!

Another issue is one you mentioned, activity. I'm not sure how active it would be.
SollinFaolan Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2013  Student General Artist
that is understandable. I used to spend ALOT of time on the DA chats when i joined several years ago, but i understand they have become rather dead in recent years. Thank you for your time and i'll be sure to keep an eye out for any possible ideas or suggestions in the future. :)
GekkouKitsune Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You're welcome. I'm still going through a few important things in my life (for once!) but it won't be long til I can spring forth my new ideas for the group ;)

Hey everyone, I'm going to post this on all my groups that involve therian and otherkin, but I was wondering if there are any of you who play Guild Wars 2? My husband :iconharushimo: and I have started a guild strictly for therians and otherkin (which has been around since the beginning of the game) and have been seeking those who'd like to gather together and make some new friends while playing the game. If you are interested, feel free to pm me either here or in game under my toon name of Kasumi Shadowseeker. If you want to know more about our guild, more info can be found here: [link] . Sorry for the long post, just thought it'd be nice to meet other otherkin/therians on the game or people who are mature enough to have an intelligent conversation. Thanks for reading and look forward to meeting anyone who is interested in game. n_n
