I got approached by a user on tumblr trying to promote their species blog.

"This blog is a place where those in the species community can come to vent, praise, or discuss situations and things related to species!"

They also have rules that I can get behind, such as needing evidence to back up any claims made against someone/a species.
So go ahead and check it out if you get the time or the itch to talk about species! ' 7 ' /

Species Guide

open species

A species in which anyone can make their own character for without needing to ask or pay! There's usually a simple guide to follow with no exclusive traits or rarities to go by. It's still important to read and follow the artist's rules before making one!

semi open species

Similar to an open species, you can make a character for it without having to pay, though you may need to ask! These usually come with traits or rarities, and you may be limited to how many you can make. Their rules will be more specific, so you'll want to make sure to read up before jumping in!

Pink Circle Bullet by Gasara

closed species

A species in which you need to ask and usually pay to earn access to the community and to make a character. You can usually get permission by buying a MYO (make your own) 'slot' or by purchasing an adopt or custom design from the creator. Usually a closed species has much more specific rules and a more fleshed out community, hence it being more exclusive.
