Representing people in picturesEdit
Please consider making and using images and composite images that are representative of situations when they are in active use. Most people experience locations when there are people (such as themselves) in the vicinity.
When used in relation to locations that have problems related to issues such as shortage of accommodation, overcrowding and congestion I personally consider it irresponsible to present unrepresentative depopulated images. Please consider the point of view or the average viewer.
(I may place a copy of this topic in a number of locations. My talk page could act as a possible hub for any resulting discussion but that's just in lieu of a better option).
