From the favicon thread:

Well, there are only eight votes so far, I guess the more votes the more significant the result. Maybe. Urgh, and I completely misunderstood the topic (reading the first post thoroughly might have helped), I simply didn't know what a favicon is... :-[ Still being on the fishy side. ;D
Well, speaking of teddy bears, I do collect those. Could I post my collection here?  :)

Of course! If there is a lot of interest, we could even set up a dedicated 'cuddly toy' section. :D

I would suggest that the mods might add a section for non toy models (such a resin or porcelain sculptures, or resin kits like the Morgan reptiles) I have a couple of these myself that I would like to add in future.

At the moment I have posted my model kits in the "other toys and collectibles" category, which probably isn't so appropriate. Thanks for listening to my suggestion :)

They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell....

Yes, that's a sensible idea, I might do that. I did move some of your walk-around posts to the other/misc board of the walk-arounds section. Kits and so on can go there (it isn't just for toys). I can also create individual kit company boards, if there is a demand for it.

I've also been wondering about the walk-around section. Do people think it would be better to arrange the topics within each board alphabetically, instead of by date? It might be more functional that way...


brontodocus

As long as we still have the "Recent" function for the Reviews & walk-arounds shortcut navigation I guess an alphabetical order might indeed be helpful. :)

Yes, the recent reviews would still be listed in the side bar, and on the recent posts page. The only change would be to the order within the boards. :)

How about adding a section for animal toys that aren't really realistic? (like Puppy in my Pocket & Friends):)

Actually, I was thinking of something along those lines. Maybe a section for cartoony animals and/or cuddly animals, but I'm not sure how popular it would be. I'll wait a little while to see how popular the forum becomes, and if there becomes a real demand for such a section. We are still quite a young forum, only a few months old :)

Ok! Sounds like a great idea to me.:)

I was thinking that we will do a section of plush animals beause some plush animals are very realist and good reply of the real species. This is a idea.

I was thinking of reorganising the front page of the forum with a right side bar, to match the dinosaur toy forum. What do you think?


animaltoyforum

It has been ages since I had any suggestions. Is there still demand for a plush toys section?

Any other requests for features of functionality?


Advicot

I think there should be a plush toy section.  :)
Don't I take long uploading photos!

Advicot

Oh and also a Science & Nature, Maia & Borges and Southlands.  :)

It's a possibility, I think it might've been discussed before. The reality is that we don't have many members who collect plush toys, but I've no objection in princile to a plush section if there's a demand for it. Anyone else for (or against) a plush section?

Since we're phasing out the walk-around sections of the forum in favour of reviews on the Dinosaur Toy Blog, I won't be adding any new categories to that section. i reckon a thread each in the 'dinosaur toy lines' section of the forum will suffice for the above companies, such topics may already exist.

I don't object to it, but I also would never contribute to it. They are welcome on the blogs, so why not the forums?

Same reply than Blaine. I have zero interest in plush toys but sometimes I'm amazed by the diversity of species that one can have in plush toy form - maybe even greater than in figure form! So, being an animal toy, they can be indeed included in an animal toy forum :)
