Common types of benches do not include....[edit]

A spanking bench?! Is this such a common type of bench that it warrants a picture on the page? It's encyclopedically valid, but I'd challenge its prominence here. Eeblet (talk) 04:09, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

  • I agree so I removed the photo. Perhaps if another image is needed a swing bench would do? --KGBarnett (talk) 21:31, 7 May 2008 (UTC)


Promotional external links[edit]

I just noticed that the three links seem promotional and barely relevant: the first has nothing to do with benches, the second seems to be a photographer's self-promotion, and the third seems to be a bench manufacturer's self-promotion. I've removed the external link section for now, but if anyone has links to general information about the construction or history of benches, that would be super.

Virtually Identical To Bench?[edit]

I don't see: bench seat, garden benches, picnic tables, church pews, etc. --NeilN talkcontribs 21:04, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

Inappropriate caption[edit]

The image file Curvy_autumn_bench.jpg is, in my opinion, not captioned from a neutral point of view. The caption "Now, that's a bench!" seems somewhat editorialised. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 149.18.16.30 (talk) 21:23, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

how so? --Roman Dog Bird (talk) 04:53, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
