Photos of churches[edit]

I tend to agree with Mark Marathon that recent additions of church photos is becoming excessive. I have, however, hesitated to do as he did in removing some, because then it becomes necessary to establish criteria for elimination, and that can be problematic in so many ways. But since we have reached that point, I would like to suggest going back to the complete set while we settle on an agreed solution. I would start by asking us to establish the reasons and benefits to the article to be derived from whatever collection of photos may be retained. I for one do not see any particular guiding principles at work in either the inclusions or exclusions. We can't arrive at a job completed without knowing what we are trying to accomplish. Thoughts?

@Doontrav:, there has recently been an edit that removed many photos you had added (plus others), which I reverted for the sake of holding discussion here. Would you please provide your thoughts regarding your continued additions? I do think that's the most constructive way forward for the article, as I also wonder what is going on. But I think we need some concrete idea here or there will be little justification for making changes either way, and the current progression cannot continue forever as is.

@Doontrav:, as you are a relatively new editor on WP, I don't want to squelch your zeal for photos here, but there is a limit to how many will act in support of the article. Some discussion is really in order on this page, and your ideas are necessary in order to come to agreement on what the right approach is to take. I would very much like to know your thinking, but I have some concerns I will need to act on if I hear nothing. Please engage in conversation. Thanks. Evensteven (talk) 02:04, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
