Continuing the Theme…

Continuing the theme of fostering connections and relationships in the community, I’m pleased to announce the recreation of another of my old lists: Candle Light.  As some of you may remember, Candle Light was an aborted effort in 2001 to create a mailing list for otherkin teachers to discuss their methods, how to improve them, and how their kinness affects the way they approach the various subjects they teach.   While all those topics are still fair game, I’ve decide to broaden the focus of the list and invite in anyone in the otherkin community who is interested in either learning or teaching a subject (or both) in the hopes that those seriously interested in learning may be connected with those experienced, willing, and able to teach the subjects they are interested in.

Straight Tracks Webring

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I find both and unusable in their current forms.  They each seem more concerned with creating ad revenue for themselves than with maintaining basic user-friendly webrings.  I’m tired of being subject to the whims of third-party webring providers, so I’ve decided to take the logical next step and host my own using the Orcas Ringmaker 3.0 PHP Script.

So, after a long hiatus, I’m very pleased to announce the re-creation of the Straight Tracks Webring.

Nor is the new hosting situation the only change with the webring.  While I’d still like to see high-quality otherkin sites joining it, what I’m hoping this ring will do is connect otherkin community resources the way the old straight tracks or “ley lines” connected many ancient sites.

It is my hope that these straight tracks will prove as magical as their namesakes, and help bridge the gaps that have sprung up in our community, making it easier to connect with one another again.

If you’ve got an Otherkin website and would like to join the Straight Tracks Webring, just click here.

Also, if you own an otherkin or magical webring that isn’t hosted on or, please let me know about it.  I am interested in joining other webrings as well.
