Exactly - presumably these are overworked and underpaid and over-scrutinised and over-regulated public servants, so the easiest way to failure is giving them yet more stuff to do without a clear "business case" (for want of a better phrase... maybe "charter case", given that the ABC charter spells out in black and white the ABC's function). It has to be us asking "how can we help _you_ meet your objectives?" rather than us telling them "this is how you should help _us_", i.e. seeing it from their perspective. > Can I suggest that people put their ideas on the wiki talkpage Done. Have also added some additional things that I think could work, namely: A logo or title-screen capture for all ABC-orginated TV series. Examples: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Corners_%28TV_program%29 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Offsiders http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behind_the_News http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Tuesday_Book_Club http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Message_Stick http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/At_the_Movies_%28Australian_TV_series%29 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7.30_Report (in fact, only a few, such as Foreign Correspondent, do have logos/screencaps, most have text only). Also it would be good if all of the series broadcast by the ABC had a wikipedia page (i.e. nice if recurring items on http://www.abc.net.au/tv/guide/ had articles). Most of series I checked do (I was pleasantly surprised), but there are a few that don't seem to, especially kids or arts programs, such as: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nelly_and_Caesar or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nelly_%26_Caesar http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_Nation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artscape_%28TV_program%29 -- All the best, Nick. _______________________________________________ Wikimediaau-l mailing list Wikimediaaufirstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaau-l
