Cleanup[edit source]

With this edit, I've made the following changes:

  • Separated "Unnecessary" and "Duplicate" as they are very different reasons for deleting an image.
  • Clarified that duplicate images can only be deleted if they're worse than an existing image. If they are better, then the histories should be merged.
  • Removed "File from game guide" since per Forum:Game Guide image template, Game Guide images can't be deleted just because they're Game Guide images, so there will always be a better reason to pick, such as "Replaced by newer version"
  • Removed "Converted to HD" since the only reason the old image would be deleted is if it were uploaded under a different filetype. Otherwise the histories should be merged
  • Changed "Replaced by PNG" to "Replaced by newer version with a different file type", since this reason applies to more than just PNG files
  • Changed "Unused/Unused in mainspace" to "Unused in mainspace" since its redundant
  • Removed "Fan art" since it would either fall under "Unnecessary", "Personal image", or "Unused in mainspace"
  • Removed "Low quality file" since a crappy file is always better than no file at all. If its so bad that its useless, then it can be deleted as unnecessary
  • Removed "Bad file name" since these images should be marked with {{M|Reason|New name}}
  • Removed "Obsolete file" since its the same thing as "Replaced by new version"
  • Removed "JPEG/Compression artefacts" for the same reason as "Low quality file"
  • Removed "Replaced by new version" since its now covered by "Replaced by newer version with different file type"
  • Removed "Inappropriate/offensive image" since its covered under "Unnecessary"

I removed "Watermarked image", as I've never even seen such a case, and replaced it with "[[RS:IMG#Glitch images|Irrelevant glitch image]]". sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 06:12, August 7, 2011 (UTC)
