insects need to have it's on category. Insects are NOT an animal and should not be lumped in with animals. Same as birds. Birds should also have it's own category.

No need to be rude. I haven't been in school for decades and to me.... and insect is an insect NOT an animal. Still birds and insects SHOULD have their own categories.

There are six main classes in the animal world. Insects are actually the largest phylum of the animal kingdom: arthropods. Birds are from the phylum chordata. Mammals, actually, are among the smallest of the animal classes. Insects, for example, have roughly a million and a half species, mammals maybe 5000. So, if anything, mammals should not be in the animals' category :-)

Thank you for the biology lesson. It would just be EASIER when voting not to have to pit a bee against a moose.....

And being an adult is a good reason for not being rude. I've forgotten more than you will ever know.

Would suggest not to recategorize insects and birds until we have an average of 500 images per day getting posted in Animals. This reduces the points earned and even awards. Let's focus on getting issues fixed which is reported in other thread recently. Did you know that photo entries for Animals category has gone down significantly. Looking at where pixoto is heading even cats and dogs categories should be abolished and only Animals category should remain till we start getting many images. Can pixoto work on fixing problems and get their user base increased.
