So you know how we have a bunch of cool and nifty links transcended within the main page's sidebar on the left-hand side? I hope that we can implement an Images section for easy reference, as listed here.

While it's true that the section is already contained within the Community Portal, I think that this category deserves much more attention.

IDEA #2:

Include the Images section(s) underneath the Contact Administrator/Upload a new image HEADER!

There's a total of 9 out of 10 lists within the rectangular box, adding in one more list would make it even out! =D

Bottom Line: This way, users can easily find and establish images that need to be maintained, fixed, deleted, etc.

Slight Oppose Pending- I think that sidebar is really more for people using the Wiki as a fansite, and not editors. Editors can always get to the image category another way. I just can't see an 'images' section fitting in over there... Prayer.png Jedi Talk HS Log Tracker Summoning.png 07:18, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

After 2nd thought, do you mean the ones with the arrows that go off into other things such as Top Content, Skills, Quests, etc.... or do you mean the regular links at the bottom such as 'upload image'? Which section would what you propose go into? Prayer.png Jedi Talk HS Log Tracker Summoning.png 07:24, December 15, 2009 (UTC)
Wow I'm stupid, misread, now I feel like an idiot.

Support - Sounds good, as we can find the section easier to fix, re-upload, or delete images needing attention/deletion.

Support - Good idea, should help a lot. Ruud (talk)(Suggest me naems) 05:48, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Support - Oh, I realise what you mean now. Yes, this'd be very helpful for all the users obsessed with applying transparency to any and every image on the Wiki. Lol ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  19:01, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - I understand how this might help the users that work on images. However, I don't think that this belongs on the sidebar, where most other links there show featured content. For example, we have many stubs, and other pages in need of attention. None of them have a link on the sidebar, and I don't think they should. Having both featured pages and pages in need of attention would make our sidebar even larger and more cumbersome than it is already. Plus, I don't think we want to be featuring on the sidebar image categories that are some of our poorer quality images. Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 21:07, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - It doesn't really make sense to add a another link when people can just go to the portal and scroll down slightly. The sidebar is too cluttered as it is. --Wowbagger421 21:18, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

On second thought, I'm as confused as Arin. --Wowbagger421 21:25, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Slight Oppose - A good idea but too little room on the sidebar —Manyman (talk) 21:22, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Slight Oppose - Is it that necessary? I understand that it would be useful, but the sidebar already looks so crowded... Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 21:45, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Support - Oh, why not. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 22:14, December 24, 2009 (UTC)

Support - This sounds useful. By the way, to anyone upset with the sidebar, you may customize it here to remove any extra clutter you don't want. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 01:35, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

Support - This sounds rather useful Swiz Talk Review Me 20:42, December 24, 2009 (UTC)

Neutral - Although this could be useful for transparency, the sidebar is already very crowded. Why not let all of the Community Portal links on there, then? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 19:07, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Whoops, I meant to type rfc, mishit the key and got rfd instead. --LiquidTalk 21:37, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

Mi-what? o_o (davelopo) 22:01, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Seems like it could be useful. By the way, this discussion can probably be closed, seeing as it's like 90% support. (davelopo) 22:01, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - Links to the categories and a few other image-related pages will be added to the sidebar. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 21:43, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
