Proposal: Creatures Small

Reached quorum 7 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 26 Jun 2019 07:59:52 UTC

In “Stables”, replace “a creature type of an animal name chosen from https://a-z-animals.com/animals/” with :-

a creature type of an animal name chosen from the [[list of animals]].

In “Creature”, replace “Uncontrollable” with “Wild”.

Set the wiki page “List of animals” to have the content it had at 08:10 UTC on the 25th of June 2019.

Remove from all stables all creatures whose creature types do not appear on the “List of animals” wiki page.

Restricting basic animals to single words, both to save space in the GNDT and to prevent confusion (is that Horned Frog a Frog which has become Horned, or an ordinary common-or-garden Horned Frog?). This frees up the shorter word “Wild”, which the King may have been deliberately avoiding for the same reason.

Update: My first draft of this said to use the original source but ignoring multi-word animal names, but it’s probably more useful if we have a wiki page listing all valid names, which we can add or remove things from if we feel like it. (The appendix on wiki page gamestate means that I have to add another line to set its content to its now-current content, so that it doesn’t get reverted to the non-existent state it had “at the time of [this] proposal’s submission”.)

sure.

238 animals. I’m not sure if that’s more or less than I thought would be there.
