Make species a fill-in-the-blank instead of dropdown
« on: April 20, 2019, 05:08:08 am »
There are many, MANY species in the amazing world of FH, and for that reason it's better to leave a blank instead of having a small selection of choices. Of course, if someone puts something inappropriate, it can be reported so the staff can deal with it.

I do agree that the blank would allow for some variation and more creativity rather than having to select from the current limited choices. As for the possibility of inappropriate things being written there, same can go for the signatures and other fields so I can see where you’re coming from with that as well. Staff can always take care of those sorts of issues ^^ I can’t guarantee that any changes will/can be done but I’ll definitely pop your suggestion by our server/site master <3. Thanks for sharing your suggestion. In the meantime you can always use the bio space too add those details.

I do agree with Suragaha, here, as well. The creativity would open up a wide range of options and I am sure many would love to see it; as some of the fluffs do have unique species. Though, the safety is an issue, for any community, it is a thing that should always be kept in mind. ^^

Regardless, this is something I would be delighted to see implemented in the future. Lovely suggestion. Thank you for sharing your ideas with the community! <3

This idea sounds good and at the first glance seems easily implementable. +floof

It'd be very fun to have a wider variety of choices to pick from. It would give a little more customization here for everyone who uses the site.

I agree with Sura's statement. Safety always comes first, but that doesn't mean this doesn't have a chance of getting implemented! Let's hope Raz likes this idea. =)

I really like this idea, so why not add a feature like this? After all, I don't see it doing too much harm. Thank you for bringing it up! <3
