PostSubject: A new section for species and breeds collectors was born!   Wed Apr 06, 2016 2:45 am

A new section on forum is open! Very Happy
It is for now called "Lists of species" until we find a better name.
It is created as a sequence of Andreas @widdukind request and also to complement the fantastic researching work that some members share on forum as it is the recent case of Julie [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Very Happy
Although it is apparently similar to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] section, it has some important differences.
While SUY serves to show, from our collections, animals of a certain group, pose, color, etc. "List of species" will be split in several animal group topics but the goal is to list as many species as it is possible as long as there is, at least, one figure representing these species.
Topics for breeds can also be included, why not a rabbit breeds topic? 🐰
We don't need to have these figures in our collections, we only share what we know and all together build a useful index to everyone, especially those who collect based in animal diversity.
It is a fact that [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is already a fantastic source but forum and Wiki are not made to invalidate each other but to be a complement of each other.
Also, as it is easier to list and research than to upload and build the Wiki, one of the goals is that "Lists of species" is always a step forward to Toy Animal Wiki. It means that these topics will also be a useful tool to TAi editors.
We can link the species on list to the respective pages on Toy Animal Wiki and add information of species not yet wikified or other replicas of a certain species that are not yet listed.
We can even discuss dubious species identification and try to find the better match to an ambiguous figure.
Pictures are obviously important and, when a non TAi editor allows it to be uploaded at the Wiki, just have to put a reference to it.
To prevent to many topics at once that will get dead because we can't keep watching and participating in them all, the thread will be locked and, for now, periodically, maybe once a week, someone will be invited to open a topic.
That person will be a kind of curator of that particular topic, keeping the list, on first post, updated as always as possible.
Obviously, someone interested in opening and curating a certain topic, just let us know and we choose a date and discuss it to unlock the section to that member.
Everyone can use this topic to give suggestions, show interest in opening a certain topic, etc.
This thread will also be used to create a index of all topics of this section respecting their taxa.
I hope everyone enjoy and participate! cheers cheers

I like this new 'list of species' a lot! Very Happy Indeed an handy source for TAI, but also for collectors Very Happy
First I though this would replace TAI, but now I know this is a separate part and has more to do with STS and his members than TAI itself.
The breach is now a lot closer for members to share info and photos about a certain specie, which is good for TAI as well Very Happy

Of course I want to open up a topic from a specie, but I don't want to be second as I have to see what is really the planning with a topic and what kind of information is needed Wink Laughing Razz

What a wonderful idea! cheers This could be really helpful for editing TAi Smile I hope people will share all their species and figure knowledge here; thanks Andreas and Roger! If you ever need a Sirenian topic, I'd be happy to make one! The differences between manatees and dugongs are quite obviously, but for the sake of TAi and my own, it would be great to discover new figurines through this new forum section Razz

Julie, of course the little sirenian topic will be yours! elephant ... and Karin, a topic for Border collies is not exactly what we ment but you can open a topic to a certain group of dogs: herding, hounds, terriers, toy dogs, working, sporting and non sporting. Laughing A border collie is actually a herding and working dog, so these two groups can work together. Wink Though, if you want instead a group of wild animals, just let me know. Very Happy

But I have no idea what kind of specie... scratch

Something that you like, collect and feel confortable about! Very Happy
I really need an expert with gastropods
but I suspect they are not your cup of tea as they're not mine either. Laughing

If I don't know what gastropods are and I have to look on Google to find that out... I am sure that it isn't a good topic for me Razz Laughing
For those who are curious: those are snails and slugs XD

I shall think about it Wink

Laughing We need a gastropoda expert but I was not suggesting it to you. Wink
I believe you'll enjoy better an obscure group of small mammals or a wide group of birds, just think of it. Idea

I have a list of the species in my collection, which for all intents and purposes would be an arthropod species list for most anything in toy form ;-)

Posting the list would be easy, adding pics, even one of every species, would take time. I would probably break it up in several threads (Lepidoptera, Aranaea, Coleoptera, etc.). But I already have a 'checklist' handy.

Great, your presentation is very good for here :)

Blaine, surely this section was created to give a overview of some taxonomic groups, especially those less common in toy shape. Arthropods are surely your area and it would be great to have these lists. Just do it as it is better for you. I think that it is important that if you want to include non toy figures in that list, that you mention them. I will surely use these topics to add species on TAI once it will be easier than your big topic. Very Happy
