    Aside of adding stuff, there's also a need for removing/combining some repeating categories. For example, "rat" and "rodent - rat", or "canid - dog" and "canid - husky"/"canid - doberman" (I know there are a lot of husky/doberman fans, but for we have a tag system for stuff like this, and placing overly specific subspecies in the list is annoyingly redundant in my opinion). It would also be cool if we could choose categories - for example, browsing all the "avian" or "dragon" artwork without having a need of clicking every species separately.

  3. I don't believe there is a 'sheep' category, so that seems like an oversight. I always have to use 'bovid - other.'

    Maybe Gilla Monster or Komodo Dragon in the reptile section, oh and I agree with the lack of elephant in the mammal section. Sheep would be nice too.

    A way to pick 2 or more animals for Hybrids.
  9. maybe 'harpy' can be added to the exotic specie list
  10. something that would make hybrids could be pretty cool too

    I'd be happy to see kirin/qilin added to the list.

    This is not an addition to the list, but I would like to point out that "Rat" is on the species list twice.
    Once under the Rodent subcategory, and another all by itself.
    Is it possible to merge the two?

    Antelope is on there, under "Bovid - Antelope"

    Yeah, but how many people are really going "Where's all my Bovids at?" when they look for species. We are looking at modifying the list, and have some notes written down to try to filter down things in a more natural flow (e.g. "What are users looking for?" not "What do WE THINK users are looking for?")

    True, but in all fairness, I never wrote the list.
    I read the users question as, "where is it/why isn't it on there", so I just opted to note it was actually on the list.

    I wrote the list as it stands on FA. What seemed like a good idea at the time turned out to be... not so great in retrospect.

    The dinosaur list is confusing, because it is divided into 'theropod' and 'sauropod', but there are dinosaurs which belong to neither of these groups, like the ornithischians.

    The fundamental split between dinosaurs that most palaeontologists recognise is between Ornithischian 'bird hipped' and Saurischian 'lizard hipped' dinosaurs.

    Oh I know, and fair enough to be looking at bringing it more up to date and easier to work with.

    Dinosaurs will be merged back into one group since most people don't know the difference, and it just makes more sense that people want to look up dinosaur art in general.
