Re: A first practical step on the documentary problem

This would be a terrible idea, because noone can agree on anything to do with dinosaurs.

Anyone want to develop an organization to require that science displays display feathers on the therapods? LOL, it isn't going to happen!

As a pet peeve I would like to see higher standards in the quailty of the dinosaur animation, which is often not much better than the models I was pulling out of cereal boxes in the 60s.

Is it perhaps feasible to have an "approval system", some organization (SVP?) names a list of scientists authorized to view a finished documentary for an "SVP stamp of approval" (and receives fee for this evaluation). Awareness of this stamp's meaning is propogated via press release and the internet - possibly by offering an approval icon to the many paleoartists out here (deviant, artevolved, flickr etc.) and perhaps a central linking system (or ring)?
