Suggestions for the species list?

    The list definitely needs to be reorganized. When I make a post with a fox in it I immediate look under Mammal...but it's not there. There's a Vulpine section but the only listings are "Fennec" and "Vulpine (Other)". It feels like at times the list is too specific and at other times it's too vague.
    Personally, I think the super specific species or breed set up is too much. Simpler terms like "Bear" covering all bears, "Fox" covering all foxes, "Dog" covering all dogs might be simpler with specified breeds or sub types being something the user tags specifically themselves.

    Hmm ... I agree that if they are going to make certain things their own (top-level-) category then it should have at least 3-5 specific subtypes to choose from (including generic/other); "Vulpine" section is currently a good example of what NOT to do.

    I would be inclined to agree up to a point, but certain classes of animals gets a bit tricky that way. Consider relatively unpopular yet distinctive and non-obscure animals within a larger family, such as mongoose and wolverines; they probably demand a clearer tag than "Mustelids - Other" or "Viverrids - Other"—do we even have a tag for viverrids?—but they don't form a big enough umbrella to merit sub-tags.

    Add "Chimpanzee" to the Primates category or condense it to just "Primate". You got Gorilla, Human, MF'ing Lemur, Monkey, and then "(Other)".

    Id like to see something like this.
    As a panwere its something definitely under fantasy or supernatural.
    That way you can vary your species a bit more.
    Pretty sure a werewolf, werejaguar or swanmane are supernatural.
     
  8. Make it so that there is a difference in domestic cats and wild cats? like not a pet, but still a cat

    As in, you're referring to a feral member of the species felis catus? Still domestic cat; that's the name of the species, rather than a descriptor for members living alongside humans. Or are you speaking of felis silvestris?

    I have a character that's a white tiger kitten made from the painkiller Oxycodone

    Please don't ask where I got the inspiration to make a white tiger kitten made of oxycodone.
