Surname, forename in list[edit]

The "last name" first, "first name" last format of this list is unlike other Wikipedia lists, so I suggest it be changed to conform to others (like the List of photographers. Pinkville 20:25, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Now the list is a sortable wikitable, I propose reworking it again to surname, forename, to allow searching by surname. (Here's the list before and after, for reference.) Is there any support here for doing this? --Trevj (talk) 08:59, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Member list[edit]

Reading WP:Not and looking at this list, I'm wondering if Wiki should include all these names, regardless of whether the photographer has an article. Seeing as the majority of names are not associated with and article, and Magnum maintains its own list, I think we should trim down the list to only include names with articles. This would make the list easier to maintain and help prevent hoax entries. Anyone wishing to see the exhaustive list could always go to the Magnum site. TheMindsEye 17:57, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

There's something in what you say -- but the Magnum site doesn't have the exhaustive list. Instead, it has current members, associates and nominees, and a unexplained collection of some past members (the most famous ones, perhaps).
This list is indeed a mess and I may have made it worse in places. One problem is that various sources say that various people "joined Magnum" in this or that year without saying which of four or more possible meanings "join" has. -- Hoary (talk) 16:42, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Portfolios in External links[edit]

I think this link section has gotten out of hand. The portfolios -- which are largely located on a single website, are in French, and, in many cases are broken links -- really should be located on the individual photographers' pages, not in this article. TheMindsEye 15:43, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Nominees[edit]

I see no reason to list nominees, present or past, and suggest removing them. -- Hoary (talk) 09:06, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Maya Goded[edit]

I've removed Maya Goded. Googling reveals that Maya Goded (aka Maya Goded Colichio) was a nominee in 2008 but is no longer with Magnum. -- Hoary (talk) 16:37, 16 January 2010 (UTC)


flags?[edit]

I'm curious why there are flags in the list? It seems a little unusual and not necessarily the most useful piece of information. --Lquilter (talk) 16:48, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
