The Myths & Legends folder is now gone. Everything except Eye-Obscuring Hat is now sourced on the other Image Source pages.(Moved Eye-Obscuring Hat to Images Without A Source)
St Fan put it back claiming that "Nothing prevent images to have SEVERAL SOURCES!"
So should we keep this folder or not? The Images are already sourced to the works in the correct places(art in art, book illustrations in literature et.c). This folder just lists the same sources again, and saying that something is "Classical Mythology" isn't really a source anyway.

I'm rezzing this topic because I just discovered that ImageSource.Live Action Films is currently set to function as an index. However, the way it's bulleted means that both the work source and the trope destination appear in the index. This is really annoying and needs to be fixed.
Either we turn indexing off or we fix the organization of the lists.

~Fighteer: Last time I checked, all the Image Source pages were formatted like that.
Ugh. That is so nasty. Who decided on it?
Well, the Image Source pages weren't indexes at all until this thread decided on it. The main reason for making the change was so that there would be an easy way to see whether a page was in Image Source and if so, whether it listing was correct. Nobody mentioned that the work pages listed on the Image Source pages would also be indexed on them in that thread, and I myself personally didn't have a problem with it until now.

Yeah, I thought that was the point. You can quickly check the bottom of a work page to see if it's the source of any images, and a trope page to see what other tropes have images from that work.
Thanks for pointing me to that discussion. As it ended, it seems to have not been settled conclusively.
The problem is that both work and trope pages are in the bulleted list. For the indexing idea to work, work pages need to be outside the indexed list, like:
That's how ImageSource.Art is formatted, since a painting only ever appears on one trope page. But other sources have multiple images, hence the current system of alphabetizing by work instead of by trope.
I suppose you could just bring the level of indenting down by one on all of the pages, so that the works don't have bullets but the tropes do. Instead of
You could just have
But again, I'm still unclear as to why works shouldn't be part of the index.

How well does it match the trope?
