Courthouse PhotosEdit

I'm re-posting this request for county courthouse photos. I have created a complete list of the courthouses and am starting to create an article for each one. It would be ideal to have a current photo of each as we attempted to do so starting back in 2009. I have taken off all of the courthouses from the original list that did get photographed. Atchison County was left on the list as the photo is of poor quality/perspective and dates from 1972. The Ellis County Courthouse photo dates from 1979 and needs to be updated. Thanks in advance!

Original postEdit

I propose that photos of all Kansas county court houses be added to their respective article, and possibly the corresponding county seat article. This would serve to beautify the article and serve as a visual representation of the county. Help is needed adding them to their respective county pages by adding the following to the County Infobox template

|ex image = courthouse image filename.jpg

|ex image cap = xxx County Court House in xxxx, Kansas

The following counties do not have court house photos. Contributors may want to cross them off once a photo is taken and uploaded. --Ichabod (talk) 03:19, 11 July 2009 (UTC)[]

I'm already aware, but the problem has ONLY been the lack of photos, NOT the wanting to do it. Depending on availability of photos, in the past when I cleaned up county articles, my photo choice was: 1st choice = current courthouse, 2nd choice = old courthouse (prior to current courthouse), 3rd choice = some other photo from the county. Sometimes I would choose the old courthouse instead of the current courthouse, because the old building looked better, but I'm not sure which counties that I did that. • SbmeirowTalk • 04:42, 2 July 2020 (UTC)[]
Photo caption. Courthouse is 1 word instead of 2. State shouldn't be included. I prefered the caption to fit on one line, so sometimes I included the year of the photo, sometimes I didn't include it.
|ex image cap = xxx County Courthouse in yyy
|ex image cap = xxx County Courthouse in yyy (YEAR)
If an article exists for the building, of which some do, then a wikilink to the article should be for the "xxx County Courthouse" text.
The naming format for the courthouse building should be "xxx County Courthouse" or "xxx County Courthouse (Kansas)" to line up with existing article naming formats for other states. • SbmeirowTalk • 04:49, 2 July 2020 (UTC)[]

The article John Brown (abolitionist) is rsted "low importance". He is more important for Kansas than that. deisenbe (talk) 12:20, 10 December 2020 (UTC)[]
