I'm just wondering if currently is possible to create a global page
with all the name and details. Personal pages are made by Ambassadors
themselves, this means there aren't any obstacles. My concerns were
related to Ambassadors maps etc.

We had such discussion twice or more since Ambassadors come to life.
If you take a look at the past years M-L archive you will find that,
at the end of the discussion, the conclusions were that nobody should
be removed even if inactive: we SHOULD concentrate on active members.

I can assure you that actually is possible to understand who is active
or not: take a look at event reports, M-L activity, IRC presence and,
even if we didn't see them, to the thousands of micro events around
the earth (LUG meetings etc). All those facts should encourage us not
to think at the inactive side, but working improving active
ambassadors experience.

Your attention to such topic underline the importance you give to the
project, and, using and sharing this passion, we should create a
better future for Fedora.

Just to be clear: with the new Membership Policy (see September 08 M-L
archive), we have enhanced the joining process, know it would be
difficult to have people that automatically fill a form, but, whoever
want to became an ambassadors, should follow a process (many of us
have just tried it).

See the considerations above. BTW, as I just said, this situation was
reduced with the new Membership policies.
