I notice there are no featured images for the reviews. Is that option missing?

They are clicked and showing for me, at least on my laptop. Are you on a phone or laptop/desktop.

I know for the two I posted I clicked them and can see all 3 on my laptop

Iím on an iPhone all this week. The DTB shows featured images for me, so I assumed something was different with the ATB.

maybe @animaltoyforum can check. I am new to 'blogging'. But when I first posted, I had forgotten to click featured images and they were not there. But then when I selected one it was. But again, on my laptop at home (and also my desktop at work). I am sure there is something in the coding Adam will figure out :)

Hmm, not sure, I'll look into that!

Yeessss!!!!!!!!!! Great job, @Badger . I went ahead and created a Category for 'Carnivores' to add to yours as well, so it can be grouped with other carnivores when being searched :). Hope that is OK with you.

I plan on doing a Yowie figure tomorrow (Monday) or Tuesday. It will depend on if we get any Guest Reviews, as I would prefer to give a guest (or other Authors) priority.

At least for now, I'm fine with that arrangement :) (it will likely have to split in future though, as it is one of the most commonly made mammalian orders :P)

OMG you are absolutely right. I completely discounted the number of dog, cat, and bear figures. Civets alone is probably not justifiable. We could add 'Civets Mongooses' as a Category (even though technically it would be paraphyletic to not include the hyenas. Just thinking out loud, I can see Carnivores having the following additional categories:
Cats
Dogs
Bears
Seals, Sealions, and Walrus
Weasels, Skunks, and Allies [this could include raccoons and red panda]
Civets, Mongooses, and Allies [non-cat feliforms, may or may not include hyenas]
Hyenas (?)
