About Kanium

We are Kanium…

A multi-national gaming community founded by Garmon and Hattenburg on September 19th 2012, simply because we felt restrained and bored with all other communities that we had been in previously.

One of the defining and strong principles of Kanium that endears us to our members, besides our official values, is free speech and an adult environment. People are expected to know what it means to have adult fun, have adult conversations, be free of any moderation in speech and to comport oneself as a member of a vertebrate species. This makes us stand out from most gaming communities out there, but has also shown us as being much healthier to our members, as well as to our community stability when compared to others.

The hierarchy in Kanium is mostly flat in practice and has been this way for years. Any officer or ranking roles above ordinary membership, are for those that take charge and create/do something for Kanium. However if needs must (a rare occurrence), Kanium is owned by its founding leaders and they have the final say.

We have learned many things through the years, from great victories to complete shut-down of the community (due to stagnation), which has convinced us that we are always at the cusp of new knowledge and challenges that serve to disrupt us, so that we may emerge stronger and better than we were yesterday. It gives us life and is part of our soul, it makes us appreciate our efforts and each other. In short, we enjoy our struggles together and thus we exist.
