  • Oppose I found the the white-on-orange and white-on-red text on the bottom two layers to be a bit difficult to read, and I suspect that others will squint at the next two layers. A quick Google image search suggests that there isn't any consensus on the colour scheme to use here, so swapping things to more reader-friendly colours seems a good idea.

    • The problem is whether this concept - a visual way to show how needs build on each other - is something that a Wikipedian-created image can ever be considered an FP. It's text in a triangle, after all. I could see Maslow's original illustration being notable, but I think FPs have a minimal complexity necessary. Adam Cuerden (talk) 01:54, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
      • Support FFS, we FP toasters. Moreover, I want a copy of this featured to show my wife that sex is indeed a need, not a want. Saffron Blaze (talk) 16:28, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
        • Very well-photographed toasters (at least in theory: Do we actually have toaster FPs?). Diagrams, though, are eminently redrawable, and so need to be particularly well-done. I'm not sure this subject can rise to that level, since its extreme simplicity means it can be drawn to about the same quality by anyone. Adam Cuerden (talk) 21:03, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment. "morality" is listed twice. I would guess that the listing at "Safety" level is incorrect since morality seems a higher-level function than the others in that section. (I also agree that some of the text is harder to read than it should be.) (talk) 18:50, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
To me, "security of morality" is a difficult concept to comprehend, and to the extent that it makes sense at all, it does not seem to be on a par with the more basic securities listed on that level. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:26, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
... however, "security of morality" does seem to be shown in the same way in a number of other sources, including several books, so I'm beginning to think it must be right after all. Hmmm, it does look a bit odd to me though... (talk) 21:13, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
I concur with your sentiment though, as it seems out of place. Saffron Blaze (talk) 23:49, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
