Why not? He's published a version with graphics that he made. Other publishers could have done the same, but haven't. It has nothing to do with how old the game is.

I think it's kinda funny. Way to go, Néstor!

Sheesh. I designed the graphics used in the KGS client. I'm pretty comfortable saying that more people use the KGS client than Néstor's set. Do I get artist credit for the game too?

Not to disparage Néstor! But it's dumb to call him the artist responsible for go.

Sure you do, as far as I'm concerned..

Check out the Chess entry too. Did anybody ever complain about the artists listed there?

Same for checkers, backgammon and lots of other ancient games. If Néstor is removed here, then more artists should probably be removed from the lists of artists of those games as well..

I'm fine with whatever BGG decides on. Just saying that I don't have much of a problem with current era artists being coupled to ancient games on BGG. On something like wikipedia it'd be a different story!

Submitted a correction to the entry to give you credits. We'll see how it turns out, if it doesn't work, you may want to do it yourself and supply some kind of proof or what not.

This is something that has bothered me for a while. I'll start a discussion in one of the main forums to see what people think the purpose is supposed to be.

While we're having this discussion: Expansions? All the brand-labels under "Alternate Names"? Should those all go?

Hmmmm personally I'd prefer that you got credited on your edition but not on the main page, for traditional games with multiple editions.

J. R. R. Tolkien is a named artist for the Chess record too.

I agree. Game's specs should be more specific per edition, rather than clumping manufacturers and artists all under the main thread. It would be much more useful to have the specifics listed only under each edition.

The artist category is no longer visible for the go entry, but where it should for their specific edition.

Now on to Chess...

According to the admin who declined my correction, there wasn't any artist category, the artists were only on their edition.

possible explanations: an admin saw the thread and removed the category, when the admin looked at the entry the category disappeared ( maybe a script that removes this category when a correction is submitted) or its a case of mass hysteria and we all hallucinated that there was a category when there wasn't any.

The jury is still out

Um, if it's a mass hallucination it's recurring, because when I look at the page, Nestor is back.

No hallucination. It's back. I haven't been looking at versions - just the main Go page.
