"Videography"

We use the term "Videography" here for listing home video releases of various TV shows (similar to a "discography" for albums). However, unlike discography and filmography, the word "videography" isn't commonly used the way we are using it. It more commonly refers to either the art/service of shooting videos (such as a photography or cinematography) or, in some cases, it's a listing of an artist's music videos or original video productions (more similar to a filmography) -- it is not commonly used for a listing of home video/DVD titles and compilations. What about instead of, say, "Fraggle Rock Videography" we just go with "Fraggle Rock videos"? It would similar to how we have "Fraggle Rock lunchboxes" or "Fraggle Rock T-shirts" (not Fraggle Rock Lunchboxography) And it might help with search engine optimization too, cause who really uses the term "videography" when looking for a list of DVD and video releases? We could still keep the category titled as "videographies" to collect all the pages (both the current-"videography" lists of multiple titles from a show/franchise and the disambiguated "(video)" pages for multiple releases of a single production). Thoughts? -- Brad D. (talk) 15:35, June 16, 2011 (UTC)

uniform titles

Is there any reason why we're using two syntaxes for these pages? Some end in "Videography" and others with "(video)". —Scott (talk) 01:49, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

I don't know if they have to be uniform. Video is used as disambig when dealing with multiple re-issues of the same movie/special. Videographies for releases of TV shows, which involve multiple titles, episodes scattered, and so on. I guess we could standardize it, but I don't think it hurts this way. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 01:52, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
Okay, that makes sense. I hadn't picked up on that. —Scott (talk) 01:55, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
