Finally an update on this project.

I got my domain ( fixed up for WordPress and multi-site capabilities via WP, so I've been getting some rough things done on the few WP sites that will be on there, including Radiant Obscurities.  RadObs is still awhile from going live, but progress is being made on the actual site, thankfully.

So here's a list of the menu category links for RadObs, to give you all a better idea of how I plan to have the site laid out and some of the categories I'm seeking for writings, links, etc. (the ">>" denote a subcategory under the particular menu section):

*About >> Authors
*Aquatics [>> no subcats needed at this time]
*Terrestrial >> ~Mammals: --Ungulates –Carnivora –Other Mammals
~Reptiles & Amphibians
~Fantastical Otherkin [Animalkin]
*Polyshifters & Humanoids [>> no subcats at this time]
*Links & Resources >>  ~Creature Info Resources –Books –Video –Websites
~Otherkin & Therian Links

By the way, "terrestrial" is meant to denote primarily land-based, regardless of whether they are from planet Earth or not.

I'm horribly lacking in writings to put under: invertebrates, polyshifters & humanoids, fantastical 'kin, and of course the remaining 'kintype categories are all in need of more content.  Here's a list of submitted and potential writings I have put together for the site so far, organized by authors instead of the writings themselves (**please check to see if I've mentioned your name and/or 'kintype and if you'd like to contribute any/anymore writings):

I have kept a copy of the personal therianthropy blurb of Podsinger, orca therianthrope. It was posted publically on the Werelist. Do you think it would be okay to archive it on RadObs, or it's not okay to repost it? I have no way to contact Podsinger, haven't seen them around for at least 8 years.

Ah yes that is right. Well, its alright either way to them. Sense they are still canine. We forget about that when listing. That makes sense.

Um... houseofchimeras or something along those lines and would be fine.

Fantastical Otherkin are a subset of Terrestrial? That doesn't sound right. One could perhaps argue that fae are terrestrial, but what about angels or celestials, elves and dragons from other worlds, things like shadows...?

Also keep in mind it isn't a site for otherkin writings in general, it's for those that are or feel they can be described as 'animalistic'.

Maybe a slight change of wording, then, if you're referring to things like unicorns and gryphons rather than elves and fae. Like "Terrestrial >> Fantastical (Otherkin)", to mean "fantastical animals, which may also be called otherkin", or "Terrestrial >> Mythical"?

eta: Duh, you kind of suggested just that yourself. Note to self, read whole comment before replying :P But yeah, I think the use of the term "otherkin" might be confusing without clarification as to just what types it covers in this context (i.e., only a subset of otherkin, those who are animal-like).
