The "country" articles in need substantial re-thinking.

We have no need to duplicate Wikipedia in providing a general description of the whole country. But there might be value in a broad overview, e.g. the "History of photography in the Soviet Union," as long as it steers clear of vague editorializing. Country pages should note a nation's key inventors and breakthrough inventions; manufacturers; perhaps also the history of photography's public adoption, or significant photographers. This is the direction our article Great Britain has evolved towards, after contributions from different authors. In any case, the names of the articles ought to be changed to reflect their contents more exactly.

The present article does not offer much content of value; but if an editor feels ambitious enough to make these changes I'd welcome it. Otherwise I think it might be best deleted. --Vox 07:20, 11 January 2012 (PST)

With the addition of the logos section, this page might become the seed of something more useful. I still think the country pages are a bit problematic (as I also mentioned here).--Vox 08:37, 8 February 2012 (PST)
I agree with all that you say. -- Hoarier 19:16, 8 February 2012 (PST)
