In models/works.rb, we have a method named creators. It is the list of creators used for Elasticsearch indexing.
However, because of its ambiguous name, people understandably keep trying to use it for purposes for which it was not intended. Then reviewers like ticking instant and redsummernight have to say, hey, that doesn't do what you think it does, and all of this somehow ends up with Sarken updating multiple pull requests.
Please, let's change the f()%&!! name. redsummernight suggests indexed_creators.
