Discussion from VfD[edit]

  • Recep'''tionist? I can't think of how you could have more than a dictionary stub for this article. Ashibaka 02:55, 26 Mar 2004 (UTC)
  • Oh I think it's all right. It's expandable, links to a few places. I've seen iffier stuff. - Hephaestos|§ 02:59, 26 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Receptionist SHOULD HAVE TO BE VERY AWARE ABOUT VISITOR AND HAVE AN EAR IN ORDER TO ENSURE SECURTIY AND SAFETY ASPECTS OF THE OFFICE —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.250.148.200 (talk) 09:08, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Front office[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The result of this discussion was no consensus.

Significant overlap here - nearly all of the front office article concerns itself with what the staff do there. McGeddon (talk) 11:19, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

Oppose At larger hotel properties, for example, a number of the front office staff, such as reservations clerks, assistant managers, switchboard operators, do not work as receptionists. The front office is usually located behind the front desk or reception and not seen by guests, so it is not the same thing. Back offices are located at a considerable distance from that area. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 13:18, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
There has been no support for this merger for 6 months, so I think the merger template can be removed now. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 15:31, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
WP:MERGECLOSE: "If there is a consensus against the merger, or, for older proposals, if there is no consensus or no discussion and you don't believe it is appropriate to merge the pages, then please remove the merge proposal tags" --SergeWoodzing (talk) 15:34, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

Removal of historical image[edit]

I believe there is considerable value to the reader to see at least one historical image from the reception of a famous hotel. Thus I am restoring that image in lieu of any better one, of that sort, that might be found. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 15:02, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

It seems very similar to the photo further down the article - a person or persons standing behind a marble-topped wooden counter, doing nothing in particular, with nothing very obvious in the background. Looking through the Commons category for receptionists, File:Photograph of William Simmons, receptionist at the White House, seated at his desk talking with an unidentified visitor. - NARA - 199456.jpg seems like a stronger historical image, so I've swapped that one in. --McGeddon (talk) 15:14, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
OK. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 15:29, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
