Regular reviewers having been adding a fair number of T List site reviews recently. We could be around 40% "complete" now (???) It could be interesting to track our status and progress.
Could the logic/routine which calculates and displays the total number of WHS and the number which have been reviewed on the Home page be replicated for T List sites. Either to be displayed on the home page, or, in some respects more logically, on the T List page?
I note by the way that reviews for Former T List sites appear with "(T)" - e.g Caspar's recent review of Stourhead. Should be "(FT)"?
I know you are not that interested in Former T List sites Els - but I personally find them of interest in helping to track the history of WHS both in general and in particular countries. I think that some of them ARE of value - more than some Inscribed and T List sites. Stourhead is such a case.
We still seem however to have problems with the "Site History" event list. Stourhead states
"Added" to what and "Removed" from what ? The T List?? Would be clearer to say so? The potential for misunderstanding is compounded on the country page where the headings for "Former T List" are "Submitted" and "withdrawn". I am sure we have discussed this before but the result is still confusing/incorrect
In fact Stourhead was on UK's first T List submitted in 1985. See - http://whc.unesco.org/archive/1986/cc-86-conf003-2e.pdf
Caspar has (sensibly) concluded from this that Stourhead was submitted for nomination
in 1995 - I can find no evidence that it was ever nominated. And neither was it "removed" from UK's T List in 1996 - it is still present on UK's 1998 T List!
The dates we have for UK "placings" on the T List for the 3 categories of
a. subsequently inscribed sites,
b. those still on the T LIst
c. those removed from the T List
seem to contain a lot of errors - I suspect partly because of the confusion about the titling of "events" (which means that other countries are likley to have similar problems?).
UK's second T List was created on Jan 1 1996 - but the ONLY difference between it and the original Sept 1989 was the ADDITION of Greenwich!! See - http://whc.unesco.org/archive/1996/whc-96-conf201-8e.pdf
But we are showing major changes in 1995!!! In fact, even SS Gt Britain remained on the T List until UK's THIRD T LIst (of 21/6/99. see http://whc.unesco.org/archive/1999/whc-99-conf209-10e.pdf
) - but we show it as "Removed" in 1988 on the site page and as "Withdrawn" on the UK Former T List page. We can't use a list with 2 columns to show multiple events (Added to T List, "Nominated"/"Withdrawn", "Removed from T List", Since by definition ALL sites in the Former T List group must have been both "added to" and "removed from" the T List we shouldn't mix in any nomination history but leave that, if present, on the site page.
If we can agree the "stages" we are to track, the "titles" we are to adopt and the columns we are to show on the Country page then I will go through UK's T List history and attempt to correct what we are showing
