Okay, about all I can do.[edit]

I hope you enjoy it. TableManners U·T·C 17:36, 22 December 2007 (UTC)


The organization can be improved in my opinion. Right now we only have two groupings, and they are not necessarily the best groupings. We might consider geographic, or refining the Art, History, and religion. Comments? TableManners U·T·C 17:36, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

I think topical subdivision would be more useful than geographic. HrafnTalkStalk 17:48, 22 December 2007 (UTC)


Placing the template instead of articles in Category:Museums in Kentucky would appear to be both idiosyncratic & unhelpful. I would recommend against it. HrafnTalkStalk 17:48, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

  • I feel the discussion isn't finished at Museums in Louisville and that using a template in the category instead of articles is also no the best solution. Jahnx (talk) 01:36, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
    • The article whose removal from the category that led me to make this comment is Creation Museum, which is not in Louisville, so the issues aren't entirely related. HrafnTalkStalk 02:50, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
  • Well thats were all this changing started. Please share your input at Category talk:Museums in Louisville as this is a sub-category of Museums in Kentucky and is the initial causes of the changes to this category. Discussions are still being held. Jahnx (talk) 06:08, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
Okay, based on this feedback, I've reversed my work. Also, the discussion is at Category_talk:Museums_in_Louisville, right? TableManners U·T·C 06:24, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

Ideas for classifications[edit]

Organized by Pros Cons
Museum type Could work out well...but May end up with some museums types that only contain one museum (unless we establish a catch-all "Other" category, e.g. for categories that would have two or less museums, and cannot be cleanly accommodated by expanding some other category to include related fields)
Region  ????  ????
Number of visitors per year Can set threshold for three different groupings. E.g., 5,000 or less, 5,0000-15,000, and 15,000 and above. Would probably have to indicate museum type with piping, e.g., [[museum name|museum name (technology)]]
Would tend to be unstable (as numbers would vary from year to year).
How useful a categorisation is it for readers (it's effectively a major vs minor museum division)?

Feel free to modify the above table. TableManners U·T·C 04:37, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

I just organized museums in minnesota based on region. See Template:Museums in Minnesota. Would this work well here? —Preceding unsigned comment added by TableManners (talkcontribs) 03:44, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
