I don't mind putting it into the thread myself. I have certain drama queens blocked here on the forum (had to create a custom UserScript for that, because for some reason this forum doesn't really enable users to block other users that bother them), so if anybody has a problem with people developing optional content for the Merge...
Harassed by impatient people through the poll? How? It is just a list that you can look up to see what people want the most. You were asking that here many times (for example you weren't sure if the Blood Dragon should be skeletal or fleshy, etc.). Now you don't have to ask, as you have the data. Or if you wish, you can just ask me and I can give you the info about what people want the most. Without annoyance of any kind.
Well, I'm not the sort to deal with crud like that the same way you do, so there.
Not through the poll, through this very forum, private messages (which you see I keep open here just in case I need to deal with bad blood outside the forum in order to not turn it into the battlefield) and Ancients know what else. I have my own limits after all, yaknow, and like I've said already, in the end I'm still just a lone single artist in here after all that might or might not die in the next year. If I need to deal with more than 1 character and, especially, characters belonging to new races, then help me
and I'm asking that of all people seeing this forum thread. Remember how did the Dracolich and Ghost Dragon come into existence in the 1st place!

Just use one of the base humanoids as a base and work from there. Add flappy ears, horns, snout, weird legs...
Like I've said before, I was only able to do these because I never really changed their baseline/blank slate
. Minotaur Lich was relatively easy to do because he still follows the same shape a regular Minotaur does and Black Dragon is just the glorified recolored Red Dragon in the same vein Minotaur Zombie is to a regular Minotaur. Creating new races like Nagas and Lizardmen requires whole new body shapes as well as functions that are, in the same vein, just as old as pre-existing ones in order to comply nicely with the game
and that's something that is absolutely beyond me because I need to pay attention to how weaponry, armors and apparel would sit on them (with that, I also mean on how the living Ancients can I even create 6 bloody functioning arms and hands without paperdoll collision issues??) as well as make it look good enough to be used in the game itself and not making it look jarringly out of place. That's essentially asking me to jump in front of the train and expecting me to stop it.
I'm terribly sorry I need to go like this at you, but some anvils need to be dropped and making new races that need moving arms and legs (Nagas, Lizardmen, Golems and I can count more) on their own is a line I will NOT cross because I CANNOT cross it in the 1st place. I have spoken.
