EDIT: Another option would be to create pages for the authors themselves instead. That page would then be able to list the works that they'd written, thus avoiding the need for headers, and still having a neat list on the authors page.

Literally as the title suggests - this CT is regarding the Authors page.

What, exactly should we do with it. Originally, it was a page that had a whole heap of minor subheadings, for each of the authors. Under each heading, the books written by that author would be listed. (Similar to the Timeline page, but with books instead of events).

The advantage of that was that links from any of the books could link to that page, and, because they had headings, direct links could be made. For example, [[Authors#Jiub]] took you right to the section that lists Jiub's Opus and its several different parts. Admittedly, it was a little bit messy, but it was never really a page meant to be looked at as a whole (unless one really wanted too) - it was more a tool used so that people could check out other books written by a same author. (Quite a lot of authors actually have written multiple books). Anyways - my question is - do we want to go back to this system, or do we want to maintain the current system of tables. (If the latter, what should we do about all the links to that page, of which there are hundreds, linking to sections that no longer appear).

Incidentally, we changed to the current tabled system about two years ago now. There wasn't a CT or anything at the time - it was kind of just ... done. :\ But anyway - just wondering where the community stands on this issue - because it never really got the chance to vote :)
