It's unusual, for a wiki page, but this page
doesn't really have a
wiki audience. Not sure how it's misleading.
It's misleading in that it doesn't say anything along the lines of
'Meet our best photographers' or '... selection of our best
photographers', or something along these lines.
It says 'This page showcases a selection of the highly skilled
photographers...' (I just now inserted 'a selection of'). Do you think
this is clear enough?
Also, if nothing about the criteria or indeed the
page's purpose are
stated on the page, anyone who considers themselves a photographer and
doesn't read the talk page carefully will add themselves.
I added a notice to the top of the talk page I had intended to do this
once a criterion had been set. Since it seems set, for now at least, I
added the notice.
MatthewMaggs thought to add a notice to the page itself, but IMO it
looks unprofessional (like a press release in mid draft). Maybe I will
be overruled on this point?
What do you
think is a reasonable critierion? How many people could be
comfortably listed on such a page? A dozen or so strikes me as about
right. After that, who's going to pay attention?
A dozen, maybe 20, or so? Whatever criteria can select a good,
representative number. I'd say less than eight looks bad, though.
Right now it seems to have one.
As I said, about 10 people *qualify* (and several others within
striking distance). We're waiting for people to write profiles.
There's no rush, is there? (notwithstanding David's original post,
which is perhaps now a lapsed opportunity)
