Valued Images[edit]

I also posted this message on MichaelMaggs' talk page.

I'm writing because of your early involvement with the Valued Images forum. Archaeodontosaurus appears to be the moderator. If not, he is the dominate figure.

I began participating in this forum 6 months ago. I read the rules and thought I understood the intent. Over time I've had some disagreements over intent with Archaeodontosaurus. But, there seems to be no place to go to get the intent of Valued Images judged, so he becomes the final arbiter. This would be okay if it were his group but I think it has broader significance. This first exchange I'm listing is our latest disagreement and it made me wonder again about the intent.

These following two are recent and also raise the question of intent, but in different contexts.

I'm quite ambivalent about this last one. This building is on the U.S. National Register of Historic places. I'm an old man now but when a boy this was the most elegant and widely known department store in Houston, Texas. It's certainly a low quality image however it's an accurate representation of the building. So, is the goal to approve good quality images or the best representations of the subject?

I suggest a committee be formed to decide whether a particular image is within the purpose/goal/objective/intent of the Valued Image forum.

The committee would not decide whether an image itself is to be accepted as best, but in the case of a disagreement, whether it falls within the purpose/intent of the forum.

Thank you for your time. -- Jim Evans ([[User talk:Jim Evans|
