Photo[edit]

I'm not sure that the photo is necessary for a navigational template. We already know that people died during the genocide, and the image can certainly be placed in the appropriate article in the series.

I dare say it also adds unnecessary bulk to the template, and should be removed for style reasons. Thoughts? If there are no objections, I'll remove it. For reference, here's what the two versions would look like:

The Rwandan Genocide series
Rwanda
History of Rwanda
Initial events
Causes of the genocide
Rwandan Players
Role of the International Community
Consequences of the Genocide
Glossary and supplements
Bibliography
The remains of genocide victims
The remains of genocide victims
The Rwandan Genocide series
Rwanda
History of Rwanda
Initial events
Causes of the genocide
Rwandan Players
Role of the International Community
Consequences of the Genocide
Glossary and supplements
Bibliography


Comments regarding use of photo[edit]

My suggestion is above; what are people's thoughts? If we have trouble coming to any sort of conclusion, this can also be bounced to Requests for Comment. --TenOfAllTrades (talk/contrib) 22:56, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I am fine with it being taken off and placed in an article. Cheers, BanyanTree 02:26, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I like the photo... but just because I think the template code is not very pretty... so, I think it would be good to maybe fix the coding a little so you don't need a picture... but, I'm not a big editor here so I'm not going to complain no matter what happens. Thanks for the message TenOfAllTrades. gren 07:44, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Rwandan Genocide Murambi bodies.jpg

A further note—our article Rwandan genocide already contains a similar photo: Image:Rwandan_Genocide_Murambi_bodies.jpg, at right. The latter photo is definitely public domain; the photo in question above is from Commons but its copyright status is not entirely clear. I'm going to ease off what's very nearly a duplicated image, unless someone sees a place in the articles where it's necessary. --TenOfAllTrades (talk/contrib) 03:02, 7 Jun 2005 (UTC)

photo, media links[edit]

In response to a request at Talk:Rwandan Genocide, I've added an image to the current template. Also, the "media adaptations" sections seemed to give undue prominence for some non-core articles so I just removed it. - BanyanTree 20:44, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
