Hi everyone. At the moment, there are quite a number of historical images in articles such as Fire giant, Moss giant and Lesser demon. Now this is all perfectly fine of course, seeing as we should be documenting such information. However, I believe that our articles should contain the most up-to-date information and that it would be better for these images to be collected on a separate page. Right now, the images are placed are awkward places in the article, and it doesn't look too good in terms of formatting. So why don't we have something like Hapi's improvements page, where the historical images will be kept and can be compared to the current HD version? What does the community think?

Support - I don't see a problem with it. WWTDD? 14:11, September 22, 2009 (UTC)

Support - Makes sense, keeps it neat.--Degenret01 15:19, September 22, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - I'll probably wind up supporting this, but I'd like some more info first, like what will the separate page be called? Will it be one separate page or a bunch of separate pages, for instance [[Fire giant/old images]]? Lastly, what if instead of moving all old images, we just go through and improve the placements of the images? kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 15:25, September 22, 2009 (UTC)

I haven't really thought up a good name for it yet, so you can come up with one if you wish to. It will be one page, not a subpage of the articles. While it is possible to simply improve the placements, I find this to be a bit tedious, and believe that collecting all the images into one page would be a better idea. C.ChiamTalk 08:13, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
The only name that springs to mind is "graphic improvement history", its a bit more formal than "old images" an more fitting as well, especially if we are going to be comparing them like on Haip's page. It woudl also mean we could do things like towns instead of just monsters. Now that I think of it something with "comparison" in the title might be even better, like "historical graphic comparison"... I dunno. Just some jumping off points. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 16:16, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
I like "graphical improvements" and "graphic comparisons". C.ChiamTalk 07:47, September 24, 2009 (UTC)
One last issue I'd like cleared up before I support. Would an upgrade from SD to HD be shown in the page? I don't think they should, because most of the SD->HD conversions are a simple matter of improving the textures without actually changing the appearances. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 22:39, September 24, 2009 (UTC)
It won't target location images, only NPC images (chatheads and all). C.ChiamTalk 07:30, September 25, 2009 (UTC)
Well I wouldn't have any problem with location images being featured (remember how falador used to look? Or the varrock fountain?) but you know how most NPCs, when HD came out, were just given improved textures? For example, would a comparison between Winelda SD and Winelda HD be included in this page? kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 07:43, September 25, 2009 (UTC)
Personally, I believe they should be included as the change is noticeable enough, but I suppose this could be worthy of discussion. C.ChiamTalk 08:05, September 25, 2009 (UTC)
I'd be fine if we include a few instances of this, but not a whole lot of em. Not only would that make the page really really long, but it'd get pretty repetative after a while... kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 17:22, September 25, 2009 (UTC)

Support - Once again, Hapi's got it veryvery right.--Joe Click Here for Awesomeness 17:47, September 22, 2009 (UTC)

Support - per above. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 21:33, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

Support - I like the idea. I don't see why it shouldn't be done. Mr. Zurkon 22:03, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

Support - Good idea. Though I can see this page getting laggy on old computers... subpages (historical graphic comparison/monsters, historical graphic comparison/weapons and armour, etc maybe) may be in order. Would be very interesting anyway. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 22:07, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

Support - Historic pictures should be maintained, and a specialized page for them is what they deserve. Zaros symbol.pngChaos Monk Talk SignCoins 250.png 22:55, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

Support - per all. Andrew talk 23:15, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

Support - Per all. --Quarenon  Talk 04:31, September 24, 2009 (UTC)

Support - There is no harm in the idea, I for one like seeing the differences between a monster now, and a monster, say, two years ago, but there is the problem of lag, but gaz's idea has practically sorted that. Ruud (talk)(Suggest me naems) 12:07, September 24, 2009 (UTC)

Closed - The Graphical improvements article has been created. Please contribute to the article when you can as there are numerous images to be found, thanks Smile C.ChiamTalk 07:56, October 4, 2009 (UTC)
