    Furaffinity Page Icon Species List Update

    We made a significant large list of changes to the species list this morning (over 100+ changes total). We added species based on relevant interest, or by the amount they appear on the site or general fandom interest (e.g. Moogles, Citras, etc). This list is not 100% complete, but it's a significant addition to the site. Some species also had such a significant presence on the site they got their own category (e.g. GSDs and Huskies).

    With that, we're still looking for feedback to apply to the lists, species to add. I've gotten some additional feedback like adding "Hybrid" and "Giraffe". Those will go in with a future update to the lists. In the mean time, if you have more you feel are worth to add feel free to reply to this thread, and we'll look over the suggestions.

    In time, the lists will be converted over to tags, and we'll roll out an appropriate tagging system. For now, we're working within the limitations of the system we have, but are planning a more comprehensive rollout... eventually (don't hold your breath waiting for it - you may die!).

    I know it's not a species, but what about adding my little pony friendship is magic to the type list?


    Also thanks for the update, I've been waiting for a very long time for more species added to the list.

    I'm just seeing MLP as being an entirely unique species on its own. It's an art style, and while I love MLP... I'm just not sure they need their own species list? If we go that route, we may as well do every show. Mind you, maybe that's not a bad idea, but... species wise? No.

    I think that would fall underneath the style-categories, and I'll be reviewing those next week.

    I'm just not sure we have enough crab or lobster characters out there. That said, I could see a general "Crustacean" category.

    Apple is the most important species of them all. You should know this. It's important.

    How about a monster option? A lot of the crazy critters I've seen don't really fall under any of those, and since the unspecific/any tag tends to include everything that people don't bother to tag, it seems that it could see some use.

    Pretty nice, although noticed a complaint or two about no "Sheep" species.

    Alright, I've been wondering about this cause next season the show is going to reach syndication which means they'll be able to air it on other channels like nickelodeon and cartoon network and that, which will only cause the popularity of the show to explode even further since the hub is much smaller in comparison, where as the other channels are the powerhouses of cartoons.
    It's better to be prepared for the inevitable explosion of popularity by having it under style-category than to make one after the fact.

    A apple a day keeps the doctor away, unless it's "The Doctor" then bugger the apple.

    That animal is awesome and I'd want to give it a hug, but I have a feeling that would end in tragedy.

    What about armadillos and Yoshis? And maybe a distinction between bear types (brown/black/polar)? Not sure if that's important enough. I was going to mention Tylacines too, but I suppose those fall under marsupial-other.

    I got an idea... What if instead of "Husky" we change it to "Spitz?"That way we can put similar dog breeds in the category, like Malamutes and Pomeranians.

    God, the FA list is so detailed now. It looks like Transfur.

    I think Werres and Worgens would technically fall under the "wolf" species. Perhaps as a category we'd use "Were Creature" for that, but not as a species. Dranaei are something very specific.

    I'm gonna have to argue with you on that. That's like saying pokemon and digimon are the same thing. similar but there is a distinct difference between drawing a wolf and drawing a worgen, even anatomically. You may as well put Tauren with Bovine. I could see were wolves just being part of wolf, but I think if wow species are getting their own category then Worgen should as well.

    Point. I'll have to look through the lists a bit more and see what sort of impact/presence they have on the site.

    Koala is a nice add.
    You still have Squirrel on the list, do you? How about Chipmunk? Or at least Squirrel (other) or what Chipmunks technically are: Ground Squirrels.

    Why is 'Tanuki' in with all the imaginary species under 'Exotic'?
    I have proof that they DO exist
    "Equality"
    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
