  1. To celebrate the end of ASAW 2021, AUREA is running a fundraiser livestream on February 27th, at 3PM EST! More info on the event and guest lineup can be found at https://www.aromanticism.org/asaw-2021 from February 21st. The event itself will be hosted on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/EJ-dbqlIK9U. I'm joining in on this event and it's looking to have some interesting people on board to talk. Some of the proceeds will be coming back to Arocalypse as well, so please do come and check it out!
  2. For legal reasons, we can't support user accounts for people under the age of 13. Unfortunately, there's not a lot we can do there - the only other option would require more administration and young people outing themselves to their parents. I do want to make clear that this is entirely a legal decision and not because we feel that people can't know that they are aro until that age or anything like that. If you're under 13, we encourage you to browse the site and if you wish to participate then you can make guest posts.
  3. If anyone wants to join the Discord, the link is already available on the forum post:
  4. Possibly all of the above. There's recently been some big software updates to the forum software, which may have improved SEO. We've definitely changed the guest posts system since 2018, but we've actually made it more restrictive not less. They now require moderator approval before going through.
  5. Just putting my mod hat on for just a moment to remind everyone that the official stance of the forum is that alloromantic and allosexual are legitimate terms. However, using these terms as pejoratives or otherwise discriminating against people who are part of those groups is against the rules of the forum:
  6. I am white. I am privileged because I am white, if I argued otherwise I think most people on this forum would have words. I am also autistic, trans, aro, and ace. I am discriminated against for all four. Just because you have some privilege does not mean that you also do not experience discrimination, oppression or stigmatisation and there is no dissonance in that statement. And related to your question, yes they do. But they do experience arophobia and acephobia respectively, things I have personally witnessed and the gay people have some measure of privilege for not experiencing that. W
  7. There is nothing wrong with the terms allosexual nor alloromantic for all the same reasons that there is nothing wrong with cisgender, perisex, allistic, etc, etc. if you have an issue with the way people use these words then by all means criticise them. But different terminology doesn’t fix those problems. This list of issues is so contradictory as to be laughable. You say that aros are stigmatised then say that allos don’t have any privileges by virtue of being allo. You can’t have it both ways. Having privilege doesn’t mean you aren’t oppressed or stigmatised. Those are not mutuall

  9. Well, there are some issues with the colours in the theme after the latest update to Invision. I'll see what I can do about them as soon as possible.

  10. Sorry for the late reply (I pay more attention to the Site Comments forum where issues like this are usually reported). This should be fixed now, but it's been a long standing issue. Please do let me know if you're still having issues with this.
  11. Oops, I forgot to re-enable status updates. Fixed now!

  12. A big thank you to everyone who has stood up to help out. Everyone give a big welcome to the new members of the moderation team, in no particular order: @Autumn, @Holmbo, @Magni, @nonmerci, @roboticanary, @Erederyn, and @boba. On a personal note, I'll be stepping back from moderating on a day to day basis. I will instead be refocusing on the technical aspects of keeping the forum running and working behind the scenes to lead the team and make sure that they have what they need in order to do their job effectively.
  13. The forum will be returning to normal soon, however we're still looking for help especially from people in the Australia or eastern Asia timezones.
  14. Hi everyone, We regret to inform you all that we will be temporarily freezing Arocalypse for an undetermined period of time due to a long-standing issue. Since Momo took over administering the forum almost a year ago the moderator team has been under-staffed. The initial batch of moderators joined on a temporary basis but have been in place now for 9 months. Despite calls for moderators both on the forum and off the forum, only one other person has stepped up. At present, we are no longer able to moderate this site effectively and so we are placing it into a temporary but indefinite
  15. I'm not sure exactly how it's calculated but it's a measure of how much you've interacted with the forums in a given time period.
