Mod Attribution Arbitration

I've been butting heads with dev_akm over this change that I made to the Tes4Mod:FCOM page.

At issue is just a stylistic question. IMO, the page had started to become cluttered with "by author" phrases. My stylistic point is that too much of that clutters up the page and inteferes with the flow of text.

Note that this isn't just a question about this page, but a question about any page that refers to mods. Should mods always be referred to as "Some Mod by author" or should they usually be referred to as "Some Mod"? Note too I'm not arguing against listing the names of authors in tables (where interference in text flow isn't an issue).

Anyway, I would appreciate it if another editor(s) visited Tes4Mod_talk:FCOM#Mod_Attributions and made a stylistic call. I think that both dev and I can live with it going either way -- we just need another voice(s) to resolve the tie. --Wrye 18:57, 6 May 2008 (EDT)

Done. Thanks Ratwar and Nephele. --Wrye 22:31, 6 May 2008 (EDT)
