Featured images are images that add significantly to articles, either by illustrating article content particularly well, or being eye-catching to the point where users will want to read its accompanying article. Taking the adage that "a picture is worth a thousand words," the images featured on the Main Page should illustrate a wiki article in such a way as to add significantly to that article, according to the featured image criteria.

All currently featured images can be found in the featured images gallery.

Nominations[edit source]

Featuring images[edit source]

  • The image must be in compliance with the images and media policy.
  • An image may be nominated by any user, including the uploader, per discussion. This also applies to nominations for replacement or delisting.
  • Nominators are not allowed to advertise their nominations, solicit comments, or trade nominations with each other, as this would be gaming the system.
  • Do not change the image while it is being voted on. Changing an image by uploading a new version of the image, or by changing to a different file of a similar subject can void all comments made before the change, and may lead to confusion.

Replacing images[edit source]

  • If you are nominating an image to be replaced, provide a picture of the original image and add a link to the previous nomination. A historical list of nominations is stored in the archives.
  • Obsolete images can be replaced with an updated version. Doing so will immediately delist the image. In order for the updated image to retain featured status, it must pass a replacement discussion.

Closing nominations[edit source]

  • When a nomination is closed, if successful, the following code should be added to the image's file page:
{{FIMG
|subject=<article name>
|desc=<fimg description>
}}

  • Support - As nominator 174.20.77.13 01:10, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Oppose - Featured images I believe should be grandiose works that make someone go "wow". This image does not do that. Legaia2Pla · ʟ · 01:15, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

    • Comment - You saw this and didn't mentally say "wow". ok 174.20.77.13 01:17, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Wowee... Oppose - When I look at this image, I say "wow..." or "wowee...". I think featured images should be more in the "Wow!" or "Wowee!" category. This is just an outdated model from 2009 that doesn't showcase RS3 graphical capabilities. Smithing.pngAescopalus talkCrafting.png 01:23, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Comment - updated to clarify my position. Smithing.pngAescopalus talkCrafting.png 14:52, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

No. - No. Just no. Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 01:31, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Support - Talk-to Kelsey 01:32, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Support - But IMO isn't this revision more "wow!"-worthy? ʞooɔ 01:34, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Support - Only if the description is changed from spider-men to man-spiders. This is a very important distinction so that Disney doesn't DMCA our asses for putting the name "spider-man" on our site. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkGuest book 01:35, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Wowee - a spider meme! Badassiel 01:40, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Comment - My statement should be read as a support and reading anything less than that is an insult to myself and everyone on this thread. Badassiel 14:46, 9 August 2020 (UTC)
Comment - A much needed clarification, since your original posistion was just 'Wowee' instead of 'Wowee...' or 'Wowee!' Smithing.pngAescopalus talkCrafting.png 14:52, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

Support - hot Star Talk ayy lmao ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 02:28, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Oppose - I was torn on this. I don't think a featured image should be limited to impressive landscapes or high-detail bosses, but also things that make me say "huh, I want to learn more, let's go check out the article!" This image does that. The problem is the model is so outdated that it would be out-of-place not only in the gallery, but also on the front page alongside all the high-quality images. At a minimum, I think the model needs to be updated to use the same facial model as other featured images like the player or Zilyana to be featured alongside them.

Support - wow! Ciphrius Kane (talk) 03:30, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Theta, aka is this os/classic? Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 07:42, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Oppose - Although the image does spark intrigue, I don't think we should be featuring an old model from 2016. Lava hawk.png BlackHawk (Talk)    10:48, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

Support - I would like to retract my original opposition for this image. I acted impulsively; after reviewing the compelling arguments for supporting this image, I can't imagine opposing it. Legaia2Pla · ʟ · 22:57, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
