Hello. Five of our most active developers and recipe maintainers have a 
preference not to use the main recipe pages for the lists of users. Of them, 3 
were for a dedicated page, 1 for a section in the Talk page. So, I agree.

I changed the cookbook listings to get the stats from Recipe-Users pages. I 
re-enabled the Cookbook.GroupFooter with a link. (This can be disabled in a 
page with the (:nogroupfooter:) markup.)

I created as examples 2 pages -- Mini-Users and ThumbList-Users -- both are 
particular, having a section "Examples" with links to user-submitted public 
galleries, and a section "Users" for comments without links. The Examples 
sections are of course not required. The lists are also included in the main 
recipe page, but this is also not required.

Recipe maintainers should manage these *-Users pages as they like -- and we 
can always discuss (global/local) improvements. We should probably try to keep 
the comments short by refactoring them and moving longer discussions to the 
related *-Talk pages.

Thanks for your feedback and when you use a recipe and have time, you can add 
your name to the *-Users page.
