Factual issues[edit]

This article may need cleanup and expantion on possible future physical transformation (cosmetic) technologies -- for example, nanotech aided physical modification. -- DeVandalizer 16:16, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

hmm I disagree about the merge. Physical transformation refers to real life surgery, while Transformation talks about virtual, magical, stories and roleplaying about transformations. One may like TFs but refuse surgery to accomplish the transformation. I suggest a name change. Transformation exists as a kink and is often called TF in the furry community. Physical transformation is still science fiction, or not very efficient when you see current results... What about "Transformation" (alias with "TF"), and "Real life Furries" or the like. --Ozone Griffox 16:25, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

While I do agree that the concept differs by quite a bit regarding physical vs. magic/other means the transformation article could be more comprehensive and have this as a subsection -- hence the merge req. In fact I think the whole transformation article could use a bit of a rewrite/restructure. I'll have to work on it and this as well. -- DeVandalizer 17:06, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

I think a separate article for real-world transformation makes sense, but I think it needs a more specific title than this Physical transformation (which I assumed to be in contrast to mental shifts and such). I can't think of an appropriate article title off-hand, however. -- Sine 18:45, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

Agreed, perhapse we could make Transformation a disambiguation page. I can't really think of an appropriate title for Physical transformation in this context either just yet. - DeVandalizer 06:12, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
Apropos the Pittsburgh City paper article, I think they put a name to those working towards Physical Transformation that I had not previously been aware of: Transhumanism. Even if we don't use that as the title of the article on Physical Transformation, it should certainly be referenced. Oh, and my two cents: Transformation and Physical Transformation are two entirely different beasties, and really shouldn't be merged.----DuncanDaHusky(talk) 12:23, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
