Hey Icedragon, I remember you!
And I you- I still have the PMs. thanks for replying here
Well, calling out the most notable users wouldn't be such a hot idea. There's quite some users, all with terrific drawings/paintings/... and it would be a shame to spotlight some and miss others out.
- I have never been that keen on User Pages, despite the fact that I have written a few, becuase often there isn't anything to say that can't be seen on their User Page without trawling through finding scraps that no-one cares about, plus, as you say, there are loads of important Users out there.
However, I am not asking because I really want to write them, I am writing because our job as admins isn't to write pages, but to assess pages, so if someone wants to write a Page, we can have a framework to decide if it should stay, ready before others write them. Notability isn't neccesarily about who is the best Artist, but who is most Notable in some way or other, which obviously has a lot to do with success and popularity.
:We could of course just mention the mods that have passed.
I'm not quite sure what you mean by "passed", all Mods are considered Notable on Wikigrounds anyway.
:Otherwise, if we really want users, we could look at the amount of FP's they've gotten and base notability on that.
OK, in Flash, we say Weekly Users Choice Flash is Notable, but we need more than that to make a User Notable, probably a stack of awards including at least one Weekly. Anyone any ideas what would be equivalent in art?
Scouting system and Art101 could of course do with some exposure. Art101 basically is our wiki in the first place. It would be fun having some of the memorable Art Forum Threads in there, albeit a bit pointless perhaps. Chadd-Syphrett and Garden Wall Art come to mind.
OK, I'm on it with Scouting and Art 101 in some way or other. However, I don't intend to write seperate Pages for other threads unless there really is a lot worth saying about them. It is possible to write Pages which have a list of things with a small paragraph about each, like our page of Ex-mods.
