Hi Rayne, nice to meet you as well!

I've taken all your wonderful suggestions and integrated them, removing the comma, breaking up the sentence and correcting the name to a proper capitalized form.

I just wanted to clarify about the Ice Elves, and I hope I was able to reword a little bit and get my point across better. The elves themselves do not hunt the Blue-tongue to a near-extinction, but rather in an attempt to re-balance the life in the Contamar Forest sought to remove them from the forest by, yes, killing a few animals and destroying their dens and navigation system so the animals are forced to relocate outside of the forest. Similar to how wolves are culled when a high number of predators threatens a herd of elk or deer or sheep that people rely on to survive. It was the combined variables of having to relocate themselves, being discovered by the Antislar and being hunted, and the reintroduction of the Eanian warg that truly diminished the number of animals (but still not in the 'threatened species' type of category due to their natural elusiveness).

As I don't hear any more comments on this one I guess it's safe to give this one finally the blue arrow - to be included next update, Brynjar!  thumbup

I'm currently preparing this one and would suggest to use a title like "The Ardol Weasel ("Blue-Tongue")" instead, for one to have a rough categorization in the name, and secondly because "Blue-Tongue" is mentioned in the text as a colloquially/secondary name, so it's not actually part of the original name. What you do think, Brynjar? Would that work for you?

Either the 'Ardol Weasel ("Blue-tongue)"' or just the 'Ardol ("Blue-tongue")', since I image 'Ardol' to be the species name, works for me.  thumbup

To include the "weasel" in the name is important especially for the menu as a direct indicator of what we're talking about. You know, because "Ardol ("Blue-tongue")" could as well be the name of an Eskimo with a tongue infection... ;) And if all entries in the menu are similarly listed, well, you get the idea... So that's why I prefer the first version. cool

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers

Short note: We had a bit of downtime Friday/Saturday night due to a server change. Site went online first, message boards took a while longer - now everything should be back to normal.
