It seems that the wiki has been uploading a lot of detailed images lately. Are detailed images really needed? Because I think that images that are commonly seen shouldn't have detailed images as it is, commonly seen. Images that are unique in appearance (DFS, Ferocious Rings, Fist of Guthix Tokens...) should have detailed images. Images that are simple in appearance (Defenders, with the exception of dragon, some Dungeoneering items (Tier 1-10 items), logs, coins...). It just doesn't feel right for some items with simple texture to have detailed image. I'm suggesting that we should delete some of these images. If you don't agree with me it is fine, as I'm simply making a suggestion.--Recent uploads SpineTalkGuest book 18:37, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - I like detailed images, they provide a nice large capture of something that could otherwise be hard-to-see. Though some items might be common, some might have no idea what they truly look like until you get a nice close-up view of it. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 19:07, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

I agree, they're interesting to see, and some look rather different from their inventory icon. I don't see a problem with having them. ɳex undique 19:17, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - What's wrong with those? bad_fetustalk 19:49, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - We are a wiki, we provide information that others sites cannot and do not. Higher quality images are no exception. Deleting images never saves space, we apply limited px's on the page they are used on so printers don't end up with 10 colourful sheets of paper costing another printer cartridge. There is always room to improve and preventing the upload is insane to say the least. Nothing will be gained by deleting images, ever. Ryan PM 19:54, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - I think detail images are nice, but they should be no larger than 100px on the page. Some users are inserting HUGE detail images that smash the article text together and make the page look horrible. While they are a nice touch, they should not compromise the article just to show off how detailed the image is. --Aburnett(Talk) 19:54, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

I think a flat 100px limit is a little small for some images on some articles, but otherwise I agree with your sentiment. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 21:20, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Support/Oppose/Neutral/Comment - Whatever Aburnett said. --LiquidTalk 19:57, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose Detailed images are great. Removing them doesn't do anything to help :S + what Aburnett said. Dragon 2h sword old.pngCallofduty4 Talk 21:12, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Strong oppose - We have editors who put a lot of work into capturing, editing, and uploading high-quality images for the wiki, and I would much rather not devalue their contributions. And, of course, the usual reasons about how detailed, HD, OoO images > lamesauce SD screenies. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 21:20, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Lolwut oppose - <edit conflict> Are they causing browser crashes? Are they using up 99% of the wiki's memory space? Are users irreversibly resizing them to 2000px? No. Real Not Pure 21:21, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - Detailed images are nice, and allow for the users to see the item, obviously, in a more detailed way.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by TyA (talk).

Strong oppose - Detailed images are very useful and good to look at. If you have a problem with their size, just resize them on the article. Per all. 222 talk 04:10, January 29, 2011 (UTC)

Strong oppose - Per all. Matt (t) 05:20, January 29, 2011 (UTC)

Strawng oppawse - I Heart detailed item images. If we are going to forbid these, why not forbid images of equipment that looks dull too? and then forbid images of monsters that look dull. We just got to take every chance to be the best and most detailed fansite there is, and if we are going to forbid certain item images, but not all, it will 100% sure give as much or even more problems than we already have with RS:G. It will need so many rules, and subrules aside that, and then those have more rules. It is just not needed, and every single detailed item image adds to the article. You can't show me an example where this doesn't apply. We should never ever remove useful information from the wiki. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 12:48, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - per all LordDarkPhantom 13:03, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - Per all. They can be beneficial to articles, but restricting their size on articles makes sense. Suppa chuppa Talk 19:13, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - They don't hurt. --クールネシトーク 23:45, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - Per the nuggets above me. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 10:41, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - per all. Do we need them? No. Are they beneficial? Yes. --AzurisProblem, wiki? 07:12, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

Closed - Detailed images will continue to be allowed on the wiki. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 22:02, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
