Successful nominations

Baby Yaga's House

Baby Yaga's House (pet).png

Description: OP luck while Jagex screws Liquid
Reason: Skilling pets are cool and this one is pretty rare.

  • Support - As nominator Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 19:00, May 9, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Fine image, ugly subject, IMO. Original Berty would crush it. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 20:34, May 9, 2017 (UTC)
  • FFFFFUUUUUUUU- - Change "fortunate" to "OP luck while Jagex screws Liquid" and I'll consider it. (Yes I'm still salty about not having this pet) --LiquidTalk 20:48, May 9, 2017 (UTC)

Arhat

Arhat.png

Description: An ascended spirit dragon from another realm.
Reason: Is snek dragon.

  • Support - As nominator Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 19:14, May 9, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Neck is disproportionally long compared to the rest of its body...it looks rather awkward. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 20:35, May 9, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support --Iiii I I I 01:44, May 10, 2017 (UTC)

  • Support - pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 11:53, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
  • Closed - Yes check.svg Image will be featured. Also, a pattern is emerging where Fswe seems to have disproportionately high standards. --LiquidTalk 02:21, May 16, 2017 (UTC)



Bubbles

Bubbles (pet).png

Description: A rocktail contained in an enchanted ball of water (from the examine, am not sure).
Reason: Nicely captured image with translucency applied well.

  • Support - As nominator Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 19:17, May 9, 2017 (UTC)
  • Neutral - The image is surprisingly nice, and the rocktail looks pretty cool. But I dunno, it seems rather...dull... User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 20:36, May 9, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - Quirky and well-presented. Ronan Talk 00:45, May 12, 2017 (UTC)
  • Closed - Yes check.svg Image will be featured. Yep, Fusswell definitely has disproportionately high standards. --LiquidTalk 02:22, May 16, 2017 (UTC)



Saradomin

Saradomin (Sixth Age).png

Description: Saradomin, the god of order.
Reason: Looks great following his graphical rework, plus it'll be one more god that could be featured, like V or Seren.

  • Support - As nominator pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 21:38, May 9, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - Looks great! --LiquidTalk 21:51, May 9, 2017 (UTC)
  • Neutral - Angle is brilliant, but otherwise it's rather bland. File:Saradomin.png is much cooler IMO. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 13:58, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support cqm 18:10, 10 May 2017 (UTC) (UTC)
  • Support - Ronan Talk 22:50, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
  • Closed - Yes check.svg Image will be featured. Oh come on, I can't get through a whole rash of nominations and find a successful one where Fusswell supported? --LiquidTalk 02:23, May 16, 2017 (UTC)



Leaf-bladed sword

Leaf-bladed sword detail.png

Description: A razor sharp sword with an intricate design engraved upon the blade (examine with my embellishment)
Reason: Another pretty sword, I couldn't decide which one I liked best

  • Support - As nominator Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 17:18, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support --Iiii I I I 03:51, May 17, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - It's literally a weapon... Nothing special about it. HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).png 1XqyDNM.png Crystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 13:24, May 18, 2017 (UTC)
It's a high quality image and the subject has interesting details/textures/shades or whatever you want to call it. I'm not sure what else you would require to make an image "special", perhaps you can explain? Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 15:40, May 18, 2017 (UTC)
Well, it's more interesting that one's average sword with the swirly pattern on the blade, but other than that it's just not very interesting (but yes it's an excellent image). User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 16:13, May 18, 2017 (UTC)
Right, so again what would make an image sufficiently "interesting" to be a featured image? Specifically for a DII, maybe an example of something you consider interesting enough would help. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 16:21, May 18, 2017 (UTC)
I responded to you on Discord but I'll say it here as well: DIIs in general are just not interesting enough to be featured images. The only exception I can think of is the old DFS because it was such a unique design, it was a rare and well known item, and it looked awesome (it wasn't just a sword or an intricate blade design, it was a damn dragon's visage). HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).png 1XqyDNM.png Crystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 22:09, May 18, 2017 (UTC)
I disagree with you about them not being interesting enough: I do think that DIIs can be interesting. Furthermore they are a kind of image that is pretty unique to the wiki; isn't that worth showcasing? There's nothing in the FI guidelines at the moment that states DIIs are not eligible to be featured images. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 17:43, May 19, 2017 (UTC)
I'll admit - I'd've nominated File:Necromancer robe bottom detail.png ages ago were it not for the awkward angle. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 09:17, May 20, 2017 (UTC)
  • Closed - Yes check.svg Image will be featured. --LiquidTalk 04:03, May 23, 2017 (UTC)



Fareed

Fareed.png

Description: One of the four guardians of the Diamonds of Azzanadra.
Reason: he's got that pickup truck with flame decals thing going on

  • Support - As nominator Iiii I I I 05:26, June 4, 2017 (UTC)
  • Weak support - He looks really cool but I'm not a fan of the angle, thought one can't do much about it, and the textures are appalling. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:29, June 4, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - das hot. Korasi's sword.png Archmage Elune  TalkHS Void knight deflector.png fetus is my son and I love him. 16:07, June 4, 2017 (UTC)

Tetsu wakizashi

Tetsu wakizashi detail.png

Description: A razor-sharp longsword designed by the Gu masters of Wushanko.
Reason: Pretty sword, people preferred the unaugmented version

  • Support - As nominator Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 20:20, June 6, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - --Iiii I I I 03:09, June 11, 2017 (UTC)

Necromancer robe top

Necromancer robe top detail.png

Description: Grr
Reason: Fswe said the robe bottom looked nice but look at this its literally an angry face.

  • Support - As nominator Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 20:36, June 6, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - Quirky in a good way. Ronan Talk 22:55, June 6, 2017 (UTC)
  • Neutral - I love it but the angle is bad. ;_; We could do the equipped image isntead, or I could go retake it, since I have spare necrokits. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 07:35, June 7, 2017 (UTC)

Description: What do you call a penguin in a desert? Lost
Reason: a e s t h e t i c, like really aesthetic lol also good because Menaphos and desert n stuff

  • Support - As nominator  Panjy16  03:44, June 11, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - --Iiii I I I 03:52, June 11, 2017 (UTC)

  • Support - The Elid looks like a swimming pool, but otherwise very pretty. Jaldraocht works surprisingly well in the background. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:20, June 12, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - This is hot jayden 18:53, June 12, 2017 (UTC)

Golden Palace

Golden Palace.png

Description: The ostentatiously and opulently ornamented residence of the Pharaoh of Menaphos.
Reason: Great angle and it looks pretty awesome. The spooky lighting effects are great too. There's a player in there but frankly that can be fixed later by the uploader without replacement nomination.

  • Support - As nominator. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:31, June 12, 2017 (UTC)

Uzer Mastaba

Uzer Mastaba stone boat.png

Description: A large stone boat within the tomb of Pharaoh Queen Senliten.
Reason: The boat looks really awesome and the blue "water" works really well in contrast with the brown stone. How the blue tiles disappear to the top right of the images also adds a sense of dynamics and depth, as if the boat is actually sailing that way.

  • Support - As nominator. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 08:18, June 12, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - Pretty good. Bandos chathead.pngDemise36talk Bandos symbol.png 08:24, June 12, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - But should be the version from the NXT client and not the Java equivelant, per RS:IMG. pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 18:38, June 12, 2017 (UTC)
There's no difference other than a slight change in brightness. By all means, this version's fine by me, but you wasted your time. >.> User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 20:19, June 12, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - Although under the same circumstances as Tony above. I've reverted the image to the NXT version. jayden 18:59, June 12, 2017 (UTC)

Unsuccessful nominations

God Wars Dungeon

God wars dungeon frozen door.png

Description: The frozen door to the Ancient Prison, containing an entity whom even the gods fear...
Reason: It looks fantastic, and the symmetry in the image is nice. Also, it's a nice way of showcasing a well-received graphical update. That said, the colour scheme is predominantly blue, which doesn't work very well with the finer details on the door and walls when thumbnailed. Even so, it looks pretty nice.

  • Weak support - As nominator. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 15:37, May 9, 2017 (UTC)
  • Closed - X mark.svg With only a weak support from the nominator and no one else willing to comment, despite interest in the other nominations running simultaneously, I don't think this constitutes sufficient consensus to feature this image. --LiquidTalk 02:19, May 16, 2017 (UTC)



Skyboxes and filters

Goshima filter.png

Description: The border town of Edgeville, as viewed through the dreary Goshima filter
Reason: A nice example of one of the new filters; its not as spectacular as some of the others but it demonstrates the filter effect while keeping the subject clear

  • Support - As nominator Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 16:44, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
  • Strong oppose - Looks dull and grey, it's not a "real" thing in-game and it's just not a fantastic image, with the huge part-of-building on the left. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 17:28, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
What kind of reason is "it's not a real thing"? Skyboxes and filters are in-game content, and there's no reason why we shouldn't feature them (I rather think that we should feature graphic effects like this). Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 17:51, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
A fine reason if you ask me; if we want to feature an image of Edgeville, we should use an image of what Edgeville actually looks like, the currently posted image has a colour overlay that doesn't represent the location as it appears in-game. But even discarding that argument, I stand by my stance that the place looks incredibly boring and grey, and that the angle is...well, not FIMG-worthy. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 17:53, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose - I don't have a problem with the muted colors, but the subject matter is pretty uninteresting. I also disagree with Fswe's comment that "we should use an image of what Edgeville actually looks like"; we're featuring an example of a filter, not an image of Edgeville. --Iiii I I I 03:46, May 17, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose, for now - I don't actually mind seeing some cool featured images using the new filters... But this is not a good example of one. It's way too dull.

Augmented tetsu katana

Augmented tetsu katana detail.png

Description: A razor-sharp longsword designed by the Gu masters of Wushanko (examine of the unaugmented item)
Reason: It's a pretty sword

  • Support - As nominator Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 16:55, May 16, 2017 (UTC)

  • Support - pjJ4pBM.png Abyssal vine whip.png 16:58, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose augmented verison - The unaugmented one looks better. --LiquidTalk 17:23, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - What Liquid said, the unaugmented version looks better, I could more or less support that. This isn't even in-game. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 17:30, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
Ok, it being from cache doesn't matter, apparently. So per Liquid. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 17:57, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I agree with Liquid (unfortunately) that unaugmented versions look better - here the augmentor is covering up the texture of the handle. I would prefer File:Tetsu wakizashi detail.png, which is brighter, is taken head-on rather than at a lowered angle, and is more square, which means it won't be as disproportionately tall on the main page. --Iiii I I I 04:20, May 17, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - It's literally a weapon... Nothing special about it. HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).png 1XqyDNM.png Crystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 13:24, May 18, 2017 (UTC)

Augmented refined anima core body of Seren

Augmented refined anima core body of Seren detail.png

Description: A piece of body armour obtained from the ferocious Helwyr, combined with an augmentor
Reason: Very good quality DII provided by Cook & Clv. Good subject with nice colour scheme and lots of interesting details.

  • Support - As nominator Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 17:13, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
  • Meh - The armor looks nice, if a little dark, but the augmentor looks weird. I'd much rather have the unaugmented version. --LiquidTalk 17:20, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose, but... Neutral - This wasn't taken in-game, was it? Isn't that automatic disqualification? That said, I concur with Liquid. The thing looks very nice (zoomed out at least) and we need more DII FIMGs, but the augmentor is weird. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 17:33, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
No it wasn't taken ingame, but that isn't an automatic disqualification, since we decided cached images will be allowed under the image policy, and the FIMG standards are that the image must follow the image policy. --LiquidTalk 17:38, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
Fairy nuff. That said, I would still argue that a cache image is "cheating" insofar as it doesn't require any skill on the editor's part (apart from transparency etc.). User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 17:43, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
Wait, why does that matter? FIMG is for featuring nice images, not nice photography skills. I don't think it matters how or where the image is obtained from (as long as it's legal) if it looks good. --LiquidTalk 17:51, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
I agree, but Isobel specifically mentioned "very good quality DII" which is kind of superfluous since it's from the cache. But since it's not disallowed, I can't oppose because of that. Anyway, the augmentor is still annoying, so I've changed my stance to 'neutral'. The item itself looks nice though, if, indeed, a tad dark. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 17:56, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
One of my main reason for nominating these images is that I think Cook and Christine deserve recognition for obtaining and uploading them. These images from the cache are way better quality than what could be obtained in-game (see the un-augmented items' detailed images for comparison). I don't see any one else obtaining high quality cache images like this so I'm not sure why you think it requires no skill. I appreciate that not everyone likes augmented items' graphics but there is absolutely no reason that this should be opposed for being taken from the cache. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 18:01, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
I obviously didn't mean to imply it's a bad image or Cook & Christine did a bad job, but, being from the cache, there's no oculus skills such as positioning, angle etc. involved, as is traditional. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 18:04, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
It's a different set of skills. A particular set of skills, in fact. ʞooɔ 08:42, May 22, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - There's nothing special about it... Cog looks unattractive too. HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).png 1XqyDNM.png Crystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 13:26, May 18, 2017 (UTC)

Zebub

Zebub.png

Description: A Tsutsaroth demon who fought for Zamorak during the God Wars.
Reason: k'ril but with the dusk skybox

  • Support - As nominator Iiii I I I 05:36, June 4, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Since K'ril is already featured, this would be a bit redundant. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:27, June 4, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Eww. --LiquidTalk 15:34, June 4, 2017 (UTC)

Almarid

Almarid.png

Description: An exiled citizen of Menaphos, attempting to seek forgiveness and gain re-entry to the city.
Reason: looks like Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in Gods of Egypt (terrible movie)



Keldagrim Monarchist Society

King of the Dwarves.png

Description: "No band of petty councillors can preserve this city through its darkest days - only a king."
Reason: Looks pretty cool even whem thumbnailed, and the angle is very interesting. Admittedly a bit heavy on shades of red, but then that fits the theme I suppose.

  • Support - As nominator. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:41, June 4, 2017 (UTC)

Skyboxes and filters

Paterdomus skybox.png

Description: The moon's low position in the sky has an unusual effect on the inhabitants of Canifis.
Reason: Pretty example of a filter with better scenery than other images.

  • Support - As nominator Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 20:17, June 6, 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - Ronan Talk 22:54, June 6, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Well, er, this is the standard skybox in the area, no filter used. :P But anyway, the water looks terrible - it's bright blue when it's supposed to be green and murky, and this would be quite similar to the featured image of Paterdomus. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 07:33, June 7, 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - it's not composed well or cropped well. --Iiii I I I 03:11, June 11, 2017 (UTC)
