list of improvements to be made[edit source]

back on the old wiki there was a bunch of stuff we stripped out of the draft otherkin article to get it live quicker. now it's up, we can work on putting it back in:

  • the theories of origin section, detailing what narratives have been prevalent or notably discussed for otherkin specifically, like reincarnation (i feel like dicussions about how voluntary otherkinity can be are relevant here too, bc there's been Some Discussion about that)
  • relationship to other communities, which was intended to talk about things like otherkinity as an umbrella term, conflation with (historically) furries and (more recently) kinnies, and the use of the term 'transspecies' by so many outside observers
  • the experiences section could still stand to be filled out some more, particularly the shifting subsection which is noticeably shorter than the others
  • the media and public reaction sections down at the bottom, i know there are tons of think pieces and reactions that could be sourced for that
  • the history section could very well be expanded a lot more, but i think if it gets any bigger it's probably worth creating a separate 'history of the otherkin community' article (assuming there's enough sources - i feel like making it a recapitulation of the otherkin timeline for the most part won't do :v)
  • this one wasn't discussed previously, but, pictures! being that this is the flagship article, i think it should basically be the best article on this site, and making it nice to look at would be a big boost, i think

so, there's a whole bunch of little tasks people can pick at if they like. feel free to suggest more, too. ~ vagabondsun (it/its + he/him) | talkcontrib 18:45, 11 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

re: history, here is a comment that was left in the 2010s section:
the community used 'secret' tags like oddnose and buttereggs around this time, when exactly and what were the details? Rainbow Collection (talk) 17:07, 10 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
