Animal group

Can there be an ~animals group, please? Where we can share animal photos, discuss animals, etc. Alternatively; there could be more specific animal groups like ~cats, ~dogs, etc.

    While there may not be an ~animals group, there are several tags that you can browse through in order to find animal/pet related content. E.g. https://tildes.net/?tag=pets...

    https://tildes.net/?tag=animals
    https://tildes.net/?tag=cats
    https://tildes.net/?tag=dogs
    https://tildes.net/?tag=zoos
    https://tildes.net/?tag=aquariums
    etc.

    And a few previous discussions on ~life have revolved around pets and pet care too, so any discussions of the same sort would likely be suitable to submit there.

    Also, will we ever be able to create our own groups and moderate them, etc.?

      New groups are few and far between with good reasons for doing so. This isn't reddit, there are no plans to make user-generated/moderated groups.

          I doubt that an ~aww or ~cute would ever be created on Tildes, since those would be primarily image based groups, which runs counter to the "In-depth content (primarily text-based) is the most important" philosophy, and "High-quality content and discussions" focus of the site.

          See also: The previous ~tildes discussions about "fluff", E.g.
          Daily Tildes discussion - why should we allow (or not allow) fluff content?
          Daily Tildes discussion - quality concerns
          What's Wrong With Fluff?
          Etc.

      They are allowed, they're just not very common outside of ~creative.

      Couldn't we use Imgur or another image-hosting website?
