Have you guys seen Fine Art of Malton? It's got the most definitive list of museums (including what they contained), though that was before the update. --Karloth Vois RR 00:17, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

No we had not. Thanks for pointing us to it Vantar 01:26, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Other things

Hi guys. Good to see that you've got it as a project! By now, are you sure that all museums fit into categories, and all museums with one description have the same pieces? Also, are you working towards search odds in these museums etc. or are you just concentrating on types and location pages? One more thing - with the pages it's necessary that you have the museum type on the page, but have you decided how you're going to include this? I'd recommend mentioning it in the body text, and then either having a

Type: Museum Type

Style part at the beginning of each museum entry, or, better still IMHO, have type as part of a museum location template.

What's more is that types should be categories too, so that people can find where the closest museum of that certain type is to get that piece. In this category you can include details on what the descriptions and items found are, a map of Malton with that museum type highlighted, a list with co-ordinates and names and the articles that are included in that category - being the museum articles of that type.

Do the descriptions alter with such things as powered generators, being ransacked by zeds or anything else? and are there multiple descriptions for any certain type? if so then the specific description should be added to the museum article.

Also, have you incorporated or seen the relation between Building Types#Museum's descriptions and the real descriptions that you have been finding - have the "currently displaying" ones now gone?

PS I'd love to help out working on the wiki/ordering side of things with this project.

i'm not author of this project, but it seems i'm one of those who works most on all museum connected projects. so to answer some of your questions:
i am sure that museums with same description hold same items and all lists of items seem to be complete (Decorative Items). So is categorising, although some of weird museum types that don't contain items (*cough*Brains Museum*cough*) might not yet been revealed. having museum type on museum pages would be great, but i'm personally not working for this yet. There's no Search Odds research yet as far as i'm concerned. --Duke GarlandLCD 11:27, 30 April 2007 (BST)

Hi all, I like this project. I've taken up "curating" a few museums in the south by adding locations pages and updating the list of museums. Here's one I put together - The Sawday Museum, its simple and I'd appreciate any comments to make sure I'm documenting museums in a consistent way with your work. Mostly I just wanted to let you know I'm around and interested in the project. Let me know if there are ways I can help --Escondido 19:56, 16 May 2007 (BST)

It looks very good, the only thing that seemed to be missing was the Location Category, I just added it so now the page looks great. I'm glad you have enjoyed this project. Let me know if you run into any problems. - Vantar 21:17, 16 May 2007 (BST)
