The Farming stage images category contains images of plants at each stage of their growth cycle. In my opinion having these images is unnecessary as they add little information that is helpful to players to the pages that they are used on. They are also difficult to maintain, which means that many of them graphically outdated or missing.

I suggest that we have only one image for each plant, of it being fully grown, and delete the images of earlier stages in the growth cycle. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 21:16, June 4, 2014 (UTC)


Oppose - While them getting out of date is a problem (e.g. magic seed), I have personally used the herb stages to figure out what stage my patch was in the past, and how long I still had to wait. I don't see any sort of harm in having them. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 04:08, June 5, 2014 (UTC)

Strong oppose - Not only are they very useful for telling what stage your plants are at, but we are not done with some of them, mainly the "high level Farming" plants, like flytraps, sunchokes, and snape grass (well, flytraps have one, but they're in horrible detail). Again, I think they're very useful, myself. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 20:39, June 6, 2014 (UTC)

Oppose - I agree with IP and Stinkowing. Images of the growth stages are legitimately useful, especially to those just starting out with farming. --Farming-icon.png Ms ZuZu Talk Quest icon fixed.png 01:50, June 11, 2014 (UTC)

Oppose - Per above. -- Megadog14Talk 03:29, June 12, 2014 (UTC)

Oppose - As folks have said above, it's the only way to tell at what cycle the growth of any patch is. --Saftzie (talk) 00:47, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

Strong Oppose - They just need a little Tender Loving Updating, is all. --dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 17:10, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

Comment - This is an outdated part of our wiki. If no one is willing to take care of it, I think we'd be better off getting rid of it (UotM, FA, etc). Supporting crappy outdated images that aren't consistent on all farming articles without the intention to help get them updated and consistent is stupid. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 17:37, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

They appear out of date because they are not updated in game. I'm fairly sure every image on Magic seed is actually true to the live game. MolMan 21:45, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
This is true, the images accurately reflect how they appear ingame. Adventurer's log Wahisietel (Talk) Quest map icon.png 09:37, June 19, 2014 (UTC)
I can't speak for any other images in the category, but on Magic seed only the image for the final growth stage is up to date. All the other are of the old model for magic trees; the farming patches have been using the updated model for some time now. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 10:16, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
Having grown magic trees like two weeks ago, I can confirm those images are 100% accurate. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 15:37, June 22, 2014 (UTC)
Are you saying that the in-game graphics do suddenly change from [[File:Magic11.png|80px]] to [[File:Magic tree farming.png|80px]]? Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 07:35, June 23, 2014 (UTC)
That is indeed the case (and has been for mooonths). User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 18:33, June 23, 2014 (UTC)
This is completely incomparable to UotM or FA. Those were purely for wiki purposes, these images are game-related. It's a completely different situation. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 20:12, June 17, 2014 (UTC)

Comment - If the consensus is that the images should be kept and updated, what standards should be introduced for them? Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 07:35, June 23, 2014 (UTC)

Is something wrong with the current ones? Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 19:07, June 23, 2014 (UTC)
Well, from what I can tell, the flytrap images are in horrible quality, and the snape grass image is just that - one image, and one image only. There's probably other problems, too. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 12:54, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah but we have standards for all of our images. No need for special ones for these. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 10:09, June 29, 2014 (UTC)

Closed - Farming growth stage images will be kept. --LiquidTalk 20:17, June 30, 2014 (UTC)
