Loss of detail wasn't an issue that came up until much later when the character count got up over 50. Hetros (5' 7") and Ys'sa (6' 9") have been around since P2P started. War Master Shiir (5' 9") is supposed to be shorter than his lovers Head nurse Il'rae (6' 3") and Healer Elif (6' 1") not half a foot taller. :S Khan'zalika was a 'tall' (5' 10") because Miburo thought the average height for a drowess was the same as for a human male which is why drawing her as 6' 6" is actually correct to the intent of the player. That was the same mistake I made when I designed Ves'xilé as 6' 4" intending her to be quite tall rather than just barely above average. Again they are all characters that have been around since P2P started in 2007.

The average height for drow is 6' 0" for females and 5' 8" for males (i.e. the males are average human height). You can check it out in the Wiki if you like. Due to rampant height inflation among character submissions Madea set Tei'kaliath averages a bit taller at 6' 2" for females and 5' 10" for males to keep things more or less sane in the RP section.

Only Reza knows why he insists on ignoring heights in character descriptions or the world setting requirements when drawing faceless and Chellians and drawing them as if everyone was human. :U

Yeah, I can see why that would be annoying in most cases, especially when a character is supposed to be MUCH taller and not look short at all. (though since Shiir's our Warmaster I like the idea of him being taller so that our enemies won't laugh when they see this short guy leading the charge against them, XD ).

Probably just easier for him to imagine them as humans with pointy ears and grey skin.

That's what the little triangle links next to the gender in the Census are. See this thread. And, yes, that's correct, War Master Shiir is in a happy threesome. :3

I always laugh when Renn gets drawn with muscles... Of course, I have pointedly designed all my characters with meager physiques... Just a personal preference, really. :3

It's difficult adapting to different heights when we're so used to our ethnocentric view (sorry, taking sociology currently). Even I slipped up by making Renn'lir 5'9" on his profile, when he's actually on the short side, closer to 5'6". ^^;

But, hey, live and learn.

It's not that, it's just that their job titles are mixed up ^^;

No, they are correct. The title of the ranked position is "Healer" and she is Elif'rafaat (Thalar's character). Her second in command is Ilrae'selyir (Runes' character) whose title is "Head Nurse".

The player accounts no longer appear in the refugee list on the P2P main page. Those 3 have been missing from the list for a while (over 2 months in fact). I finally got around to putting a * on the names and moving them from the "yet to be hired" list in the assistants' tables to the inactive table.
