Kydo, why do you believe that this race has incomplete categories? Roteton Kin 12:53, 1 Oct 2016

See the wiki markup at the bottom of the page? Those are categories. They are flexible, so you can put races into a variety of appropriate categories. The categories are used by the DPLs to sort races. --Kydo (talk) 05:54, 1 October 2016 (MDT)

For the image, please can you provide attribution to the artist and a link to the source, thanks. Marasmusine (talk) 09:46, 1 October 2016 (MDT)

Featured Article Nominee[edit]

This race has the potential to be a featured article. I am nominating this page as a featured article, with the reservation that it may need a little polishing work before it gets approved. This page needs to be supported, commented, or opposed from within our community, and double checked for conformation to featured article formatting and content standards by someone who will then let us know how well it meets these criteria. --Green Dragon 09:09, 22 January 2018 (MST)

  • Comment - I've done a few touch-ups here and there but I think the physical description is lacking entirely and the image needs to be checked to see if it can be used and then credit if necessary. ConcealedLight (talk) 17:47, 23 January 2018 (MST)
Well, seeing as this was originally my design, I find it neat that it is being nominated as a featured article. Although, a few of features were taken away, such as Savage Attacker, I like the race modifications. I put more thought into the physical description and fleshed it out a bit more. As to the image being used to represent the race, I'm not sure how to go about giving credit for the image. --Roteton Kin (talk) 17:47, 24 January 2018 (MST)
Normally you backtrack to find the image source and see which licence it's under. If you can find that we can tell if we are allowed to link it on the site and if so what are the specification for having on the site, such as crediting the artist under the image and linking it to them. --ConcealedLight (talk) 05:33, 25 January 2018 (MST)
Support: Very well fleshed out, really high quality image, and just altogether creative and fun! Easy support (Varkarrus (talk) 16:28, 15 February 2018 (MST))
  • Oppose Featured articles need to have distinct traits 1 , is it kaimeran? or chi-meran? kee-meran? Too hard a name to pronounce 1 for a featured article. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by BigShotFancyMan (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts!
Please don't take other editors comments out of context and use it to enforce an unofficial blanket ruling. I feel you're being a little vindictive in this case but besides that Chimeran is not difficult to pronounce since its just Chimera with an n on the end. If you'd like to propose a new way featured articles should be nominated and assessed please do so on the relevant pages. --ConcealedLightThis user is an administrator (talk) 03:29, 8 May 2018 (MDT)
I am sorry you feel this way concealedlight. I am only following the example of an admin who assessed an article in a new way. It is not I that needs to propose anything in that matter. If your comments had another context other than to oppose a nominee, as mine do here, I look forward to the discussion on relevant pages. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 06:34, 8 May 2018 (MDT)
  • Comment - See below:
  • I think it needs combed through better for grammar eg "monster in a humanoids skin", "on one of his disciples but before he", and many more examples. I fixed one myself, but I think the idea is to comment issues? Same level, capitalization of the race. I thought this wasn't suppose to happen unless it was at the beginning of the sentence, similar to SRD.
  • Link for Lionfolk?
  • Alignment comments don't seem right to me. Chaotic/Lawful and Good/Evil are on different axes but Chaotic and Good are the ones showing a relationship with one another. This could just be a me thing though.
  • Languages has draconic and I'm curious about the favoritism towards that since goat/satyr race have their own thing. Would choosing a language from a list be acceptable? I don't think first party has this, rather any one language of your choice.
  • Traits are balanced and flavorful to the creature, including subraces. I like the backstory and flavor of how this came to be. With the wording/grammar issues fixed, I support this as a FA. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 11:18, 16 February 2018 (MST)
Without adequate improvements, this nomination will be failed. --Green Dragon (talk) 10:38, 13 March 2018 (MDT)


  • Comment If the image is to be displayed on the Main Page then it needs to be locally uploaded. --Green Dragon (talk) 10:38, 13 March 2018 (MDT)
