Just seeking input on another stub creation (created yesterday with limited usage). Is there a necessity to seperate all the different professions under Template:bio-stub? It's not my creation, but wanted to field some comments... Cburnett 22:15, 27 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Keep. The reason that this has limited usage is that it was just created (not by me). I thought it was a good idea and started filling it up by searching on Google for articles displaying the people stub text and the word "actor" and got 154 hits (the template text alone shows up on 951 pages—this is a substantial sub-group). Category:People stubs is enormously bloated at the moment. The point of stub categories is to get them small enough that someone with an interest in that particular subject can go through looking for articles to fix. Category:People stubs is far to big for that top happen.
(I guess I'll have to wait another week before filling up the category, though. Can we start the discussion on the template talk page next time?) -Aranel ("Sarah") 22:21, 27 Jan 2005 (UTC)
I started talk there to. But since only a small number have editted with the category it's of limited knowledge that it exists. Unless someone was watching Special:Recentchanges (or had an actor on their watchlist that was changed--like me) they'd never know it was there. I hate to use WP:TFD this way (to solicit input) but if there was a consensus not to continue with it then I thought it'd be best to stop sooner rather than later. I do find your rationale compelling, but I'd like to leave this here to get more input. Cburnett 22:26, 27 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Since I created it, I won't vote, but I will explain my reason for creating it. There is Template:Tv-bio-stub, which people were putting television actors into. The problem is that most actors don't just do television, so putting them in this category is too specific. There are also Template:Writer-stub, Template:Musician-stub, Template:Artist-stub, Template:Composer-stub, so it seems appropriate to have a stub category for actors as well. I understand your reasoning, but it seems to be that if this were to be deleted, every other sub-stub of bio-stub should be deleted as well. – flamuraiTM 22:55, Jan 27, 2005 (UTC)
The new image for the stub File:Oscar cropped.jpg is really hard to tell what it is.
Good idea, but it's just really hard to tell what it is.
In fact, I didn't know until I clicked on it and saw it was cropped.
Anyone got a better image fo an oscar?
