Fishing Guild

Fishing Guild.

Description: Players fishing at the Fishing Guild.
Reason: The fishing guild is a popular destination for players and yet remains a mystery to those of lower levels. This image is a good example of the capabilities of RuneScape in HD.

  • Support - As Nominator Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 22:10, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - As it actually has something to look at other than a chat head.Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 00:06, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - Very well detailed. The scenery is also one of the best. Better than any old chathead. ~MuzTalk

While Guthix Sleeps

The Stone of Jas.

Description: A player finds the legendary Stone of Jas.
Reason: This is a really nice image from a very significant quest. The image and quest speak for themselves.

  • Support - As nominator Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 01:04, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - The amount of detail is superb. I propose we change the link to Stone of Jas, instead of While Guthix Sleeps. The image has to be included in that article, however.   az talk   04:51, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - I love that image, it's more than worthy of recognition. --Rollback crown.svgAburnett001 {Talk} {#} 04:53, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Support - Absolutely gorgeous. The lighting, the textures, everything... it's beautiful. Easily one of the most best images in the game. --Beware the underrated. Pikaandpi Berserker Fury!Hit hard or go home. 14:20, 26 March 2009 (UTC)



Guthix

Guthix

Description: The best god in runescape.The god of balance and nature.
Reason: Behold! The great and mighty GUTHIX.

  • Support - I, Lewislew, nominated this picture. 17:07 21 march 2009 (UCT).
  • Support - This is a nice image. I resized it to go along with the criteria. Also I don't think we should call him the best god in RS. How about "The god of balance and nature" Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 18:09, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment - The description given is inappropriate, and has been changed accordingly.   az talk   18:41, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Support - If it gets some transparency Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 23:31, 26 March 2009 (UTC)



Jad

Jad.

Description: No description given.
Reason: Jad is one of the most feared monsters of runescape. The dark misty clouds add to his mystory and sheer fearsomness. --{{SUBST:Template:Signatures/Burnanddie93}} 09:38, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

  • This nomination was made by User:Burnanddie93
  • Comment - I resized the file so that it would fit the image guidelines for the main page. Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 16:45, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - He looks more like a small dog that the level 702 Jad I know. Some concept art would be a little refreshig. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 17:48, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - If it's possible to nominate images outside game client, then yes. Would make a nice image to the main page. dictature 16:23, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - Great Picture. Great Detail.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 99.138.67.192 (talk). Only logged in users are allowed to vote Rswfan
  • Support -awesome picture, the best one of the bunch Nengex 18:50, 28 March 2009 (UTC)



Baby dragon (pet)

A pet dragon.

Description: Your very own pet dragon.
Reason: This is good image of a high level reward from a difficult skill to train. Summoning allows you to have familiars and pets, but only the elite (1,400 or so) have the level 99 required to have one of these guys following you around. I think this image will generate a lot of interest about pets, summoning, and dragons.

  • Support - As nominator Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 01:04, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - It's sooo cute ^^ --80.100.99.192 10:42, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - It is indeed nice Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 23:31, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - Very detailed Tyras helm.png Dindirindin!!! --Dindirindin 12:48, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - Cute. I would cook my meat on that. Should the title be Baby dragon (pet) or Baby blue dragon?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 10finland01 (talk).
  • Comment This image could like to the pet or the monster. The reason I linked it to the pet was because I thought this might draw people into some of the good content we have related to pets and summoning. Killing these guys is easy, but having one as a pet, now that's a challenge. Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 10:24, 31 March 2009 (UTC)



Bandos avatar

Bandos avatar

Description: The High Priest Goblin under the control of Bandos.
Reason: What a cool creature, no?

  • Support - As nominator. Quest map icon.png Nandonalt TalkGuthix symbol.png 14:48, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - Interesting monster, as it's actually an avatar of a god. Pretty dull god, I must say. Nonetheless good image.
PS. It has to be resized, as your image has 261/200px height. The width must be set to 153px. (Image on right side)
I changed your signature into a template. There's something wrong in your preferences. dictature 16:43, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Support - VERY nice, taken at a great angle and I agree with 2+2 it does look like one of those pictures that jagex would use in the benefits of being a member page. -Magersam X
  • Support - Clear, crisp, gets a nice picture of the Avatar of Creation, and captures of the chaos of Soul Wars. I'd love for this to be featured. --Beware the underrated. Pikaandpi Berserker Fury!Hit hard or go home. 14:35, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Would support if there wasn't all the combat hitpoints bars across the creature and the Retribution prayer in the shot. If they were removed, 100% support. Statistics.png Lvl 3 skils3 Choice! Talk~ Holiday Signup ~Hiscores 18:43, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Support Great image, gotta love the Wise Old Man! Like the way that theres no backround clutter.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 94.193.238.22 (talk).
  • Support Awesome, I also think the one where he is taking a mud bath would be good as well Player moderator crown.png Poppop24 Skillcape emote icon.png 03:02, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose The way I see it, Featured Image is for Runescape moments that have been perfectly captured. That is jagex stuff.Joe Click Here for Awesomeness16:42, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Weak Support; I'm torn. I wish that we could get it on another angle (I'm not a big fan that it's on an angle, like a front on view), but I know that we can't anymore. Then again, it shows a side of the Wise Old Man rarely seem, and it's got some nice texture work (look at that snow!). --Beware the underrated.

Brimhaven Dungeon (2)

Brimhaven dungeon entrance.png

Description: The legendary stairway leading to the Brimhaven Dungeon, the resting place of the metal dragons.

  • Support - As nominator. I know this image was up to be featured a while back, but the complaints with the image have been fixed. The brightness of the screencap is now adequate so you can actually see whats going on, the file format has been changed to png, and it has been retaken and cropped to better show off its real size and detail. I also took the screenshot further down the stairway to remove the fog and show the full length of it. You can see the old image here for comparison [[1]]Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 06:21, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - Omg, wonderful image. Quest map icon.png Nandonalt Talk[[File:Guthix symbol.png]] 22:19, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - Much, much better. It's also one of the first images of the underground areas of RuneScape up for being featured (the Stone of Jas image doesn't really count...) and it feels mildly dark and foreboding. Beautiful. --Beware the underrated. Pikaandpi Berserker Fury!Hit hard or go home. 14:44, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - I love that image, considering using it as my wallpaper. Requiem1160 17:40, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Goblin Village

Goblin village gathering.png

Description: The goblins of Goblin Village gather to listen to their Chosen Commander.
Reason: A pretty unique cutscene where you see a large number of npcs at once at an interesting angle. Very nice coloring and use of lighting as well.

  • Support - As nominator.Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 22:51, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Weak support - As said above, the image and colors are very well done. But, I am somewhat put off from that chatbox image. ~MuzTalk 22:54, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment - I agree with Muzzy. The chat box should be removed.   az talk   02:52, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment - Chat box has been cropped. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 18:26, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Weak support - I like this pic, however I think it could be cropped even better to focus just on the mob of goblins. If that were done, my support would be full. Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 21:46, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Dagannoth Prime

Dagannoth Prime.png

Description: The most dangerous of the Dagannoth Kings A legendary Dagannoth King, rumoured to fly on the North winds.
Reason: I thought we'd get some interest from this pic. It gets people wondering about the Dag Kings.

  • Support- As nominator. Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 05:05, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Unsuccessful nominations

Brimhaven Dungeon (1)

[[File:1600x1200brimmydungeon.gif|200px|right]] Description: The legendary stairway leading down to the brimhaven dungeon.
Reason: This is a high resolution screenshot of the brimhaven dungeon entrance. It is a very atmospheric and shows alot of detail.

  • Support - As nominator. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 09:04, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Pretty unclear as a thumb, too large in a frame. Also a GIF image. The small version just doesn't look good in my opinion. dictature 16:38, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose -i'd have to side with 10finland01 on this one Nengex 18:52, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Comment - I resized the image so you can see a little more detail, I think it helps a little but I'm still unsure if it looks good at this size. Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 08:31, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Brilliant pic, but gif so not so good image quality.Joe Click Here for Awesomeness15:46, 31 March 2009 (UTC)



Catherby (1)

Image: Click here
Description: The general calm atmosphere at Catherby.
Reason: Good angle, capturing what makes Runescape so good - the old-fashioned fishing at Catherby. A classic.

  • Support - As nominator. You might want to click on it to see it big.Joe Click Here for Awesomeness18:02, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - Not so nostalgic with no macroers. =D Classic, though. Quite a few fishers, though. dictature 18:58, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - You can actually tell it's Catherby due to the Water Obelisk on the island. Good job --Fletching-icon.png ZeromaticBalance iz powa! 21:39, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - I think it's a nice image. I hardly recognized it though without the all flamers that seem to hang out there and I almost never look at it facing south, lol. Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 18:55, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose - I don't really like the positioning, here. The fishers seem awfully small, and, to be honest, things look a bit unorganized (there's too much going on, with the fence, the road, the obsilik in the background, etc.). If we could get a more... direct shot (for lack of a better term) of the fishing with the environment, that'd be great; but I just don't like how crowded it feels. --Beware the underrated.

  • Comment - The fence gives it the sense of a photo that has been taken, it would be empty without it.Joe Click Here for Awesomeness13:03, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
    • If the fence is really important, it should not be taking up that much space. Maybe you should move closer (or farther away) from the fence, and re-take the photo. I think the Wikipedia:Rule of thirds apply here.   az talk   02:52, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
