I think this one looks good; if we could somehow get a free picture of her, it would probably be B-class. Of course, the question is, do we want a picture of her? ;) 220.127.116.11 (talk) 05:02, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
The ONLY photo I have been able to find of her is here: http://www.montecook.com/cgi-bin/page.cgi?mc_los_141 taken apparently by Monte Cook's wife Sue when they were both on staff at TSR. I'll try and dig into this and see if she will grant CC rights, but is a marginal photo at best, not even showing Williams' face. Given that she was a prominent businesswoman (at least in the gaming community), I am suprised there are not more photos from business publications, annual reports, convention news, fanzines, etc. Even the recent announcement about Buck Rogers sale had no current photo. And both sources use her maiden name--possibly a change of marital status? Guinness323 (talk) 05:36, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
Actually, I have seen that pic before as well! I think a side shot bending over isn't exactly the most flattering pic anyway, and probably not worth the effort. :) 18.104.22.168 (talk) 05:55, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
As tagged, I have proceeded to do a copyedit on your article here, I will go section by section to make it easier to revert anything you think I've done that is either wrong, or doesn't improve the article, go ahead! revert me! I won't be offended! :)
- I would have liked to have known why Gygax was dissuaded from installing his wife...
- I would like to know how much the Buck Rogers collection went for at auction, is that something that is known?
- Generally a short, but well written article, not much to do here, pat on the back for the involved editors, even the cites are done well, nice to see a well done article!
Thanks for looking into that, I didn't actually expect any answer so soon! I just thought those were a couple of things that could be added that might flesh out the article a little more. I would think that the Buck Rogers auction might have gotten some media attention, and possibly an estimated value, or an "expected to sell at" price, somewhere... Maybe not. Still, a decently written article, and they're always nice to c/e! --Despayre(talk) 07:23, 28 March 2012 (UTC)
Here's something I just stumbled across because now you've piqued my interest a little, it looks like, based on this auction house, that the collection was sold, almost exclusively in 2010, and if you wanted to get a site membership (probably free), you would be able to see the values of the items sold, and ergo, the collection total worth, but that's a little bit of work to get that total, I realize that, hey, I'm just the c/e guy! :) I also found this mention, about 4/5ths of the way down the page... --Despayre(talk) 08:05, 28 March 2012 (UTC)
