On infoboxes for items, the picture in the infobox is usually that of the item in the inventory. Why not replace them with bigger images from the Grand Exchange BETA. The top is what we have, the bottom what I propose.

Current Proposal

I tabulated the infoboxes to better see the the comparison (even if the boxes are squawshed a bit). As for the proposal, I oppose because most of the items with their detailed GE image uploaded already have them displayed at the top of the article, on the left. I like it (like that). Displaying the inventory image should be our priority, as the inventory image is what is actually in-game. Some items have an in-game detailed image, but most have theirs taken from the GE database. Hence the infobox image should stay as the ingame inventory image. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 16:58, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

How about both?

Comment - It's perfectly fine the way it is now. Anyway, putting both images in the infobox makes it look kind of bad. C.ChiamTalk 12:56, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - I agree with Caleb, just leave it how it is. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  07:18, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - I don't like the look of it. Adult chameleon (automatic).png Anurin Talk · Sign! . 08:07, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - G.E images are too big. FredeTalk 14:39, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Gaz Lloyd. --Quarenon  T / C 00:55, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Oppose I like the idea of having a bigger (detailed) image in the article, which I usually put at the top left of the first paragraph. However, the point of the infobox is as a sort of pro forma checklist of the item's properties, and the image in it should be the item as it appears in the inventory.

Comment - We need to make sure that every item has the more detailed image in it then.Joe Click Here for Awesomeness14:34, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

What do you mean with in it? Adult chameleon (automatic).png Anurin Talk · Sign! . 14:38, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Every item article has the detailed image in it.Joe Click Here for Awesomeness14:44, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
If an article doesn't already have a detailed image, then either it [the image] cannot be obtained (like many (but not all) untradeable items), or no one has uploaded one yet. If the latter, it's not that hard to fix. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 18:02, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
