Topic: artist biographies

In the future, I would like to see a feature to sign the texts written by members. Graham and I have added many biographical texts for artists and informative texts for artworks and art movements and received no credit for that whilst a member who uploaded an image is credited on the artwork page.

I also think there should be a mention somewhere that an artist has his biography written by a member (maybe a symbol next to his name in the lists?).

For the record, here is the list of the 64 artists with a significant biography:

Yes I tend to agree.  Most of the above has been added by Josselin (not me) although I have entered several biographies and continue to do so.  I also add some descriptive text to artworks as and when I come across something.  It is a laborious task and is ongoing slowly (entries of artworks take precedence for me).  I have today added some text for Bernardo Strozzi (biographical and for some of his works) but for many artists - especially the early ones - not much can be written.

Josselin has done a marvelous job in expanding this website with important information and credit should not be unrewarded.

I have also edited and provided many facts to countless works.  As I stated earlier, it would be useful if the editorial uploader was mentioned when an edit is made.
