Expanding the list[edit]

The following ballet dancers in the Category:Ballet dancers seem to have not enough info on them in Wikipedia and not enough illustration material, so better not include them into the list right now:

Flag icons (?)[edit]

Why is this article using flag icons for the nationality of the listed dancers -- especially on a list Russian dancers? If no one responds to this query in the next ten days, I propose to remove the flags as an inappropriate use per WP:FLAGICON. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 09:07, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

I strongly concur; this is not what flag icons are for.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  00:12, 10 November 2015 (UTC)
You probably meant WP:MOSFLAG. Concur. A minimal possible unility is marred by the fact that Russian Empire and modern Russia are not distinguished. - üser:Altenmann >t 04:24, 10 November 2015 (UTC)
I have removed all of the flag icons as an improper use of flags for nationality. Ballet dancers do not bear the requisite representational character. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 16:40, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

The format of this table is unreadable[edit]

As a minimum, the "details" column must be removed. We have full articles for details. It is next to impossible to put all relevant details into this narrow column. - üser:Altenmann >t 07:12, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
