To be honest this all looks fine to me, so would you like to read through and let me know whether there are any changes you would like to make?

Also, do you have a picture in mind?

Gnomon - time to move on

I haven't got a photo of any of these, so it will have to be an artist's impression.

I have a long history of not getting on with the artists, since I believe that the artist should illustrate the entry to the satisfaction of the author.

- I've been banned from posting on the site for a short period for stating this view (apparently it didn't show respect for my fellow volunteers)

- When I complained to the Editors that the illustration on the Ringworld entry (done by my good friend Asteroid Lil) did not resemble the object described in the entry, I was told to take it up with the Artists and that the Guide Editors could not do anything about it.

- I've insulted an artist so much by asking could a change be made to an illustration that he resigned on the spot, and I was called an a**hole for making this mild request by a close associate of one of the Guide Editors

So I refuse absolutely to have anything to do with the choice of a picture for this one. Sorry.

I'll look through the entry and see is there anything else that can be done to it.

There's Asteroid Lil's picture on the Ringworld entry which could be re-used, but this is an example of where the artist doesn't consult with the author at all. It bears very little resemblance to a Ringworld. I've had problems dealing with the artists, since I believe that I've been banned from posting on the site for a short period

Ignore that last paragraph - that's a leftover from when I was composing my reply.
