I have noticed that one or two pictures of certain items must have been taken on a private server, this picture for Image:God_Sword.jpg‎ example was clearly taken on a private server as Godswords were never wielded like this. You may remember that all 2hs were updated when godwars came out. Should this image and others be deleted as its not runescape and technically is false information? --File:Red phat chathead.png‎|30px|My hair is ftw ^.^ Noah Talk to meh here <-You should really talk with me..... 02:16, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

I removed it, as I'd said the same thing a few weeks back. WWTDD? 14:33, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Comment - I requested a speedy delete of this image, as per a GIF file of a player wielding a Godsword is provided and the I trust this source more. Anywho, I agree, images taken in private servers should not be uploaded, but in general this would be hard to determine if this is what has happened. How can it be proven this picture was taken on a private server. Note, I do not support a speedy delete of an image (even if taken on a private server) if it is the only image. A VfD should be completed at that time, or a new image(s) uploaded before removal.

Comment- It isn't that hard if the player is doing something that never happened in runescape. private servers picture might look a little strange and would be low quailty.--File:Red phat chathead.png‎|30px|My hair is ftw ^.^ Noah Talk to meh here <-You should really talk with me..... 22:53, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Comment - If I'm not mistaken, there are no HD private servers--the new RuneScape protocol hasn't been deciphered yet. So, until HD private servers exist, all private server images will be in standard detail, meaning they will eventually be replaced anyway. I do agree that we should not allow images taken on private servers, but I don't think we need to start a witch hunt searching for such pictures; if you suspect an image as being taken on a private server (and it's not completely obvious), just add {{sd}} to the top of the page, and someone will take an HD screenshot soon enough.

Comment - As supertech1, you can tag those images with the {{sd}} template. And i thought that private servers were illegal to use?? Buzz (Talk#P ) 22:25, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
