Ok, that actually sounds like a good idea. I also need to join those Zetaboards and Yahoo groups, I've been putting off for some time now, but I think I will be able to do so. I will speak about this over DeviantArt as well.
Hey Hypernoid, I know it's been a while since I've been here on the Speculative Evolution Wiki, but I was wondering if you would be interested in helping me create a new Wiki; the Sharks Wiki, which covers sharks, rays, chimeras, and other cartilaginous fish as well as shark films, documentaries, and experts among other things. Would you per chance be interested in joining and aiding in this endeavor? I'm currently seeking advice on how to start up this wiki, but will let you know once it's up.
I would be more than happy than to assist with the creation of the Sharks Wiki. However, I am afraid I can't do it at the moment due to my busy schedule and my personal work on the Spec Dinosauria. I will admit that I have made mistakes with continuty and I should be keeping a trick record on the progress goes. Actually that reminds me of something I need to do. Take care and have a plesant day.
Where you've got most of the specworld content so far?
OviraptorFan recently marked a problem in the ancestry of errorsaurs and I thought it was about adding current discoveries, but now that I have read the text again I see that there are a lot of species added in a paragraph that of the pages that I have of the original specworld there wasnt there before.
Most of the Errosaurids' current diversity resides within Errosaurinae, a group of long-legged predators similar to the ancestral errosaurid. They are generally small animals, rangingin sizes of two to six meters long. However, their bonecrushing bites more than makes up for their lack of size.Despitethefactthatthevast majority of the tyrannosaurs are small carnivores,thereareafewspecimensthatgrowtomediumsizes, fulfilling the role of other ancient medium-sized tyrannosaurs, likeAlioramusremotus,Teratophoneus curriei and Appalachiosaurusmontgomeriensis, just to name a fewexamples.Recentanalysishasrevealedthatthesesmall species of tyrannosaurs,aswell as the likes of theErrosauroidessp.cantracetheirancestrybacktoQianzhousaurussinensiswhilesome of the larger forms can trace their ancestry back to thefamous Tyrannosaurus rex.
Where did you get that?
We are trying to keep the information of the project as it was left when the project died, and these modifications smell to me to works apart and not canonical
About that, I got it from the Yahoo groups and some of the older pages. As for the stuff about recent discoveries about the tyrannosauria, that was for the part of recent discoveries and some name changes because I though that it was being revived. It was a mistake on my part, I will be honest on that part.
Hey HypernoidX71, I originally sent this message to Corvus coracis, but I then learned that the other Spec. Evo. Wiki is dead. Here's what I told him in the message:
I'm thinking about getting back into my speculative evolution project, Dinosaurs of the Ice Age by giving it a complete redo where only the smaller non-avian dinosaurs survive the K-Pg mass extinction and non-avian dinosaurs are completely wiped out in the areas hit hardest by the meteor strike, such as the Americas and possibly even Europe and western Africa (as well as in in India due to the Deccan Traps); giving the mammals a chance to grow somewhat larger in those areas. Thus, it could create an alternate present day where both mammalian and dinosaurian megafauna exist and compete for dominance. :v)
Hello!I am OviraptorFan!pleased to meet you.Are you leading the spec: dinosauria project?If so how can i get permission to submit ideas.Do you have google hangouts/deviantart/discord? If so can we talk there.
as for submissions,i want to add in a family of cenoceratopsians that, rather then size or horns, went for walking on two legs and omnivory/carnivory.They would live in places like the americas and perhaps eurassia.Some species preying on small animals and other following larger carnivores around and feeding on whats left.If you look on deviant art and look at my account (Oviraptor Fan) then you can see one species of my idea.
Hello OvirpatorFan, while I am delighted to hear about this, I think I need to make some clarifications. I am not one of the original members of the Speculative Dinosaur Project. I just happened to be big fan of it back then and I was upset to see it get shut down. However, I did speak to some members who worked on the original project and they said that they are more than happy to see it comeback. As for fan requests, I am sorry to say this, but fan requests are not allowed due to it being it not being a community project. If you want to speak to me about this, I will gladly give you the link to my deviantart.
I actually came on here a while back and tried to submit my idea(i had no idea about asking for permission back then) and it got kicked ut.now that i came across the project once more,i wanted to actually contribute. Thank you for giving me this information
From now on, when you deem a page has to be deleted, can you add the delete stub to it? Go to add other templates when editing a page, and just type delete. It will paste in the stub for you. I can't keep track of all of the random comments.
Hey Hypernoid, I found out some interesting facts, both in regards to the Spec project and real dinosaurs that I thought you might find interesting.
In regards to Spec: The Taiga striders (Errosaurus arahorni) were originally much larger. They were 8 meters long, according to the old copy of the files I possess.
In regards to real dinosaurs: Dinosaur eggs took a markedly long time to incubate and hatch; 3 months for a Protoceratops, and 6 months for a Hypacrosaurus. It's no wonder they never recovered from the K-Pg Event.
Ok understandable. But when you are done, I could you help me out in regards to the continuity of the therizinosauria. To add the new information with out retconning anything. Let me know when you are able to do so.
Here is the therizinosauria clade for the Spec: Therizinosauria based on the stuff from the old archives on bowdoin's website and the stuff I found on zetaboard, with a few species that were cut out from the final project. I recommend you look at the yahoo group and the stuff on the website if you know what I mean. #Therizinosauria
Ok. Inform me when it is done, you may want to follow the diagram I made as well. As for the Common Liandaolong (Seculasaurus vulgaris) Great Liandaolong (Seculasaurus gigas), these were based off of named that were rejected from the Speculative Dinosaur Project back in 2002, one thought were to have those to species be present through out Central America, a region vastly overlooked by the original speculative dinosaur project.
