Forum:Featured Image Voting
Currently, the voting for the Featured Image is on the template talk page of Template:Featuredimage. I suggest we move all the voting to a project page with the "RuneScape:" namespace in it to fit the style for all the rest of the "Featured" projects. We could name the page "RuneScape:Image of the Month" or something along those lines. What do you guys think? Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 01:11, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
- It's possible to move it to RuneScape namespace. But not as "Image of the Month". I specifically avoided this name.. to avoid "competitions". With the recent developments in our wiki, a winner based on votes does not necessararily mean a majority consensus. The images are randomly displayed from a list. (Try refreshing the browser.) We vote to include the image into the list, not to be a winner of that particular month. I hope users understand this. 03:41, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
I have two concerns. First, I'm not sure if we have come to a consensus on whether we want to have a single featured image for each month or that we should have a list of images that will be chosen from randomly. I like the randomized list idea, but I do think it will be easier to get a consensus on one image per month while we build this list of community approved images. Personally, I support that we start off with one image for the month determined by consensus, and once that is running smoothly we can think about a randomized list.
Second, I am unsure as to the origin of the current list of featured images. This list displays on the main page for all to see. Was this list decided upon by one user, a select few, or the entire community? I strongly believe that the entire community should contribute to this list, either through Yew Grove or on a page in the RuneScape namespace. Some of the images look good, but the Abyssal Whip image looks... well abysmal. (Sorry I couldn't resist that one). So when we get this list approved by the entire community I do hope that the current images aren't left in there if they were selected by a limited number of editors.05:06, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
- Yeah, I admit I compiled the list myself by asking around at the CC. But I needed the list to test the randomising feature.. If people do not like an image, they can vote to have any of the current images to be removed. Just use the same process outlined in the "Nomination guidelines", using "Remove" instead of "Add". I don't see why this is a big deal... =) 06:58, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
Closed - The page has been moved to RS:FIMG. I've also removed the test images, and added the nominated images. 10:17, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
