Intoduction

Options:

Regarding JPEG's

1.1 I think when you upload a JPEG, {{JPEG}}should automatically be added.

1.2 I think when you upload a JPEG, it should automatically be in [[Category:JPEG images]]

Regarding GIF's

2.1 I think when you upload an unanimated (if that's detectable) GIF, {{GIF}}should automatically be added.

2.2I think unanimated GIF's automatically go under [[[[:Category:Dithered images|category:dithered images]]]]

Oppose all - Not all jpegs need Template:Jpeg like pictures from the RS website. Secondly I don't think you can detect non-animated gif's. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 23:01, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose all - Sentra is right. --LiquidTalk 23:12, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - Those templates automatically add those categories you mentioned. Not all JPEGs can be replaced, especially if the source picture is a JPEG. The opposers are right in saying that animated GIFs can not be detected. ʞooɔ 23:20, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose all - Sentra put it good. Also, have you considered looking at how other YG discussions are set up? You don't need to put positions since we all have the ability to think of how to respond. :P svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 23:37, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - per sentra, and comment - Thanks for caring about the quality of the images. We can't and won't stop JPEG/GIF files being uploaded, and we also won't tag all JPEG files with {{JPEG}} because, for example, some image editors keep good quality even if the file is a JPEG. This makes JPEGs able to be high quality, even though it is a JPEG. Also there is no way to detect if a GIF is an animation or not, and even if it would, there is no need to tag them all with {{gif}} as, for example, the GEDB images need {{GEDB Image}} instead of {{GIF}} and some don't need a tag at all. It is just extra work, and not needed. There is no way we are restricting uploadable files to certain extensions, and there is also no way we are automatically tagging images as not all files with a certain extension need a tag. There is also no way we are going to make a bot or anything that tags the images. We just need to tag them manually if we see them, and live with it, okay? It's all not that bad.
