Speculative biology is simultaneously a science and form of art in which one speculates on the possibilities of life and evolution. What could the world look like if dinosaurs had never gone extinct? What could alien lifeforms look like? What kinds of plants and animals might exist in the far future? These questions and more are tackled by speculative biologists, and the Speculative Evolution welcomes all relevant ideas, inquiries, and world-building projects alike. With a member base comprising users from across the world, our community is the largest and longest-running place of gathering for speculative biologists on the web.

As you may have seen, several of our members are now in different user groups as of today. We have made the following promotions:



While DT and Little have been with us for a while, Icthy and Sphen are new to the staff team and we look forward greatly to having them with us. You might notice that the Forum Moderator group is much reduced now; it was set up when conditions on the forum were quite different and a lot of its original intent is no longer relevant to the forum as it stands.

We have also done some housekeeping with some older and inactive staff members, moving:


I'd also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year and a thoroughly good 2018.

Time flows like a river. Which is to say, downhill. We can tell this because everything is going downhill rapidly. It would seem prudent to be somewhere else when we reach the sea.

These staff members show up too infrequently (or don't anymore) for an active staff role be justified.

BREAKING NEWS
We interrupt your regular programming to bring you this cutting edge report.
ATTENDANCE DROPS DRASTICALLY ON SE SERVER
This past Monday on Discord, famous server Speculative Evolution took a hit in the attendance office when it's offline member list suddenly reappeared. Mods scrambled to rectify the situation, but unfortunately there was little anyone could do. Server member Ivan was asked what he thought of the situation. "So long as Flisch, lord of machines and scion of Urborg lives, all will be well". SE, (in)famous for it's eccentric userbase, has recently been spiraling downward, and now we have hard conformation of the decline. Moderator "High Lord" Icthyander states "There is nothing to be concerned about, Discord is merely changing its UI again", but members are beginning to suspect the honesty of their staff.
Stay tuned, we'll be back with more at 11.

Wait. How exactly does one become a staff?
Projects
Punga: A terraformed world with no vertebrates
Last one crawling: The last arthropod

ARTH-6810: A world without vertebrates (It's ded, but you can still read I guess)

Potential ideas-
Swamp world: A world covered in lakes, with the largest being caspian sized.
Nematozoic: After a mass extinction of ultimate proportions, a single species of nematode is the only surviving animal.
Tri-devonian: A devonian like ecosystem with holocene species on three different continents.

I'm happy for Sphenodon, but I don't know why they chose him out of everyone

Eh, account age isn't everything. I've been posting here for close to six and a half years, and I haven't been considered for a moderator position as far as I know. On the flip side, Sheather's been here for less time than I have, and he's an administrator. Account age isn't too important, so you might have a chance.

Some more changes are afoot;
  • Troll Man to Global Moderator
  • malicious-monkey and Myxini have decided to leave the staff team. Thanks for your help guys!


As you might be able to tell from these changes; we have retired the Forum Moderator (also known as green mod) position. It had become largely obsolete, especially since there's no active community project at the moment.

Also, I think a mistake has been made with regard to Myxini's role, since they're showing up as a Global Mod currently.
