Right, I know most of you guys will go "Ohh not another useless thread, just UCS or BB", but I think this decision has to be made only once. I am referring to the new eyes update Jagex made on NPCs. They now have eyes. Yay.

Does every NPC image need to be retaken under the Obselete tag? What I mean by that is: does an image with the new facial update override a better quality image without the new eyes? Does this change warrant the need to replace the image, or is it minor enough to not be dealt with?

I know this was touched upon in Forum:Facial features update, but it did not have any sort of consensus, just general "Yeah.. Do nothing... Lol." LordDarkPhantom 19:40, December 10, 2010 (UTC)

In a nutshell, does: Facial features > Better quality ?


Oppose - Too small a change. LordDarkPhantom 19:40, December 10, 2010 (UTC)

No urgent need to replace - And certainly no need to add {{obfile}}. Just let it happen over time. We have [[:Category:Standard detail images|plenty]] of SD images that need updates more. --Aburnett(Talk) 19:52, December 10, 2010 (UTC)

No need for a rule - Case by case basis ftw bad_fetustalk 22:00, December 10, 2010 (UTC)

This is what I assumed the replies would be. What if two people disagreed with each other? A rule would come in handy there. I mean, there is always RS:IAR for special cases. LordDarkPhantom 10:30, December 11, 2010 (UTC)
Discuss on that images talk page. No need for bureaucracy. bad_fetustalk 12:41, December 11, 2010 (UTC)
This is exactly what I'm trying to avoid for most parts. We can't start a discussion on each of the 100s of NPC images. This can act as a sort of guideline: Person A thinks that all the NPC images should be the new version, despite the quality whereas Person B thinks that the quality should be approximately the same/higher before it can be updated. They can start a discussion on every talk page? This can act at least as some sort of guideline. LordDarkPhantom 08:35, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Template:Facial features What is this discussion for? to stop people from tagging facial update images with {{obfile}}? Just tell evryone to use that template.

If this is about if facial updates are more important than quality: Quality is more important. If an image is a lot smaller, or doesn't have AA(like what happened at File:Orb of Oculus worn.png and [1]) i think the version with the best quality should be used. If there starts an editwar, feel free to contact me to take another shot, and improve it. And if you are ok with it, they can contact you too phantom. Maybe we should put it in the template like "these users can help out to prevent an revert war by improving the image: [1][2][3][4][etc]. Feel free to contact them on their talk pages"(with the links going to their talk pages. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 15:46, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

That's a stupid idea. Just have that facial features template categorize files if it doesn't already. bad_fetustalk 16:37, December 12, 2010 (UTC)
Sniff you are a stupid idea Sniff JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 17:00, December 12, 2010 (UTC)
What? This template can be used to tag images, but is this relevant to this discussion? You say that the better quality should be used, so I assume you Oppose to the question above?
Anyways, you mentioned an edit war, but this is exactly what I'm trying to avoid. Make a choice. Simples. This thread can be incredibly simple, yet it's getting distracted... LordDarkPhantom 19:05, December 17, 2010 (UTC)
