Talk:Phantom tail syndrome

Alright gang, what's our standard for something like this? Do we require some kind of third-party, neutral research? Scientific research? At any rate, I don't think we should be creating wiki articles for every random Web forum thread that comes up with a new concept of some kind. Simba B 22:33, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

It's not about the forum thread, it's something that happens to quite a few furries that is very odd. I thought that me and my friend were like the only ones that had it happen, til i saw that post.-- 23:00, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Searches suggest that this is not a unique occurrence, and has been discussed for some time now. It should perhaps be merged into tail, though. --GreenReaper(talk) 00:04, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
I understand it may also be mentioned in Anna in Wonderland. --GreenReaper(talk) 00:10, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
"It should perhaps be merged into tail, though." That's actually a great, logical suggestion =) Spirou 22:08, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
But, this includes wings and ears too, or should we call them Phantom Wings Syndrome etc? If there's a better name for this Syndrome that can include all the things that people often feel then we should change it to that. It's not ment to specificaly be about tails.--Tails Clock 22:49, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Technically, it's phantom limb syndrome. Although in the furry fandom I hear it most referred to in relation to tails. --GreenReaper(talk) 22:57, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

I've had this most of my life. I think it's kinda strange, but it probably comes from pretending to have a tail very very often. I thought about talking about it before, but I'd always figured it didn't really matter. Ronin 21:59, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Status update (July 23rd 2008)[edit]

Updating the entry's appropriateness status. Keep?, Delete? Spirou 06:10, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Furry-related, and no requirement of notability, so keep. The merge with tail seems unnecessarily confusing, since as mentioned, this could occur with wings or ears too. --Rat 09:00, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Keep - It's a phenomena I've experienced myself. I'd give an example, but I want to keep this comment short. --Markus(talk) 09:28, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
