Successful nominations

Dragon Forge

Image no longer used in mainspace
Description: The Dragon Forge, where lava flows from mouths of dragons.
Reason: It's a good-quality image; with good lighting, rock detail, etc. Having a player here isn't a problem, as he fits in as an adventurer discovering the Dragon Forge. Looks good to me.

  • Support - as nom. C.ChiamTalk 09:47, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - The image is not in the best quality (antialias 4x in runescape browser) ad the player kinda ruins it... i like the main outfit, but the staff is not the best.Maybe you can try to use the anvil itself :o Heal Group icon.pngShadow guy15 TCEHeal Group icon.png 11:41, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
    Anti-aliasing is not necessary for an image to be of a high quality. At 200px, the image is too small to notice whether there's anti-aliasing or not. Also, I did not take this image. Besides, having a player in an image is not necessarily a bad thing (see File:Fishing guild.png or :File:1600x1200brimmydungeon.png). A lot of users seem to keep going on and on about players ruining the image, when at times, it really isn't the case. C.ChiamTalk 11:50, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Players may not ruin an image 100% of the time, but they do when they wear distracting, out of place armour like that. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 16:24, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
    Exactly why is the armour distracting or out of place? Dagonhai robes, dragonfire shield and a staff, and the colours are quite muted, so I don't see how it can be distracting or out of place in any way. Just some thoughts. C.ChiamTalk 07:23, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
    Dagon'hai robes alone would have been fine. But the HP cape and the Dragonfire shield puts it over the edge for me. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 17:23, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
    There's a shadow over the hitpoints cape, so it hardly stands out, especially as a thumbnail (imo). C.ChiamTalk 07:08, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
    Its light gray on a dark gray background and very dark gray robes, it sticks out like a sore thumb to me. Regardless of what sticks out, when I first opened the image, the first thing my eye was drawn to, despite all the glowing hot lava, was the player and their outfit. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 15:35, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
    You do realise that it is shown as thumbnail on the Mainpage, right? You seem to be nitpicking about details that can only be seen at its full size. C.ChiamTalk 07:03, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
    Yes its a thumbnail on the main page, but its the featured image and people are gonna be interested and open it up. I can see how it would not bother other people, but it bothers me, so my opposition remains. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 13:23, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
    Fair enough then. C.ChiamTalk 13:29, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Support - This is a pretty good pic of a unique place. Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 21:27, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Neutral - The angle and lighting and stuff looks beatifull, but the character wearing a staff, dfs and hp cape is a bit distracting. It would be better if the character was just wearing Dragon'hai robes with nothing else. Become an Elite Blue Knight. Power Pinkie Join us. 09:48, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Weak Support - I love the picture and the detail itself, however I will agree with the people above about the character standing in the middle of the scene, possibly you could use the turkey emote to remove him from the picture or maybe change the clothing so he looks like a master smithsman.

  • Slight Support - I like it, but the player spoils it a bit. The rest is just great. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 20:45, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment - I was bored and managed to unlock the Forge yesterday, so I took the picture - if anyone wants to see it go to the page in my Signature or my Screenshots page. Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png
  • Replace - Ive had a good look at the screenshot and I now think its a 5* picture, if it doesnt make the featured images, I WILL eat my feet. The AA people have been craving for is also there, I suggest it be replaced as he has taken it at https://runescape.wiki/wiki/File:DragonForge3.png RSN: Warthog Rhys Talk Completionist's cape...

  • Replace - If the image is replaced with File:DragonForge3.png then full support. If not, my opposition stands. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 17:29, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
    You should submit a "Nomination for replacement". A nominated image should not be replaced midway through the nomination process.
  • Closed - Nomination is successful.   az talk   17:57, 21 August 2009 (UTC)



Enchanted Valley

EnchValleyWF.png

Description: A waterfall runs through the valley of the centaurs.
Reason: This picture shows superb textures, a much-underlooked area (renowned for it's beauty, hated for it's uselessness) and delicately creates an image of peace.

  • Support - As nominator Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png
  • Support - Looks very nice, and nothing is too powerful in terms of eye catching, the image is viewed as one whole. ~MuzTalk 13:43, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I don't consider it beautiful. Maybe if JaGex updated the graphics. Smile Miasmic Blitz icon.png Hapi007 Talk! Sign! . 19:26, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
    I'm afraid you lost me. The Waterfall (and water), trees (which are the same in Soul Wars), Bullrushes (which are the same near all lakes, rivers etc.) and the HD-exclusive overlaying Ground textures are'nt updated? I must be playing RSC. {{Down}} Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png
    The waterfall isn't updated, and that's the main thing this image shows. Miasmic Blitz icon.png Hapi007 Talk! Sign! . 11:38, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
    Erm do you happen to remember what waterfalls USED to look like? Vertical rivers with some shimmery effect... kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 21:02, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - Nice angle and good detail, but I think the proposed description is pretty cumbersome. Might I suggest "A waterfall runs through the valley of the Centaurs" or something similar? kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 19:38, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
    Yeah, I wasn't very happy with the description and Reason - I had a bit of Writer's Block >_< I'll use your one - thanks :3 Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png
  • Support - Its a really nice picture about a waterfall that I don't even know the location of, nice job, however I will agree that the description could do with updating. RSN: Warthog Rhys Talk Completionist's cape... Coming soon. 16:10, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - I think this is a nice looking image. Too bad Jagex couldn't make this place a bit more useful. Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 20:06, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Lumbridge

[[File:Lumbridge.png|right|200px]] Description: Lumbridge, birthplace of the greatest heroes.
Reason: Lumbridge is a home. It's a home to all the newbie players and some of the highest too (RFD chest). It is where you start, it has alot of beauty, and superb textures.

  • Support: as Nominator. Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png 14:20, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose - Its almost perfect but has one very large flaw in my opinion... the flags and the top of the castle are cut off kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 14:23, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
    Hmm? The top of the castle is there, it's just the flag at the top. I'll see if I can crop it in. Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png
    Impossible, screen isn't big enough (ironically). Besides, it's so small and trivial who cares tbh? >_< Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png
  • Support - Wow, it's like OMG... :O Makxtrl Talk 18:10, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Weak support - Awesome picture but the big archway-type-wall-thing sort of ruins the image. It blocks the courtyard, which could make this image 100% perfect. Quest point cape.png ThatOneGuy Quest point cape.png 05:49, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
  • Neutral - It's nice, but I would more like it if the castle was captured from a different angle. It's not thát clear it's a castle right now. Miasmic Blitz icon.png Hapi007 Talk! Sign! . 15:06, September 1, 2009 (UTC)
I know, I can't tell it's castle either. It looks more like a volcano to me. Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png
  • Neutral - Nice, could be better. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 21:00, September 1, 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - Per Gragon(: Ancient talisman.png Purest One14 Talk Ancient staff.png 17:56, September 2, 2009 (UTC)

  • Support - Apart from the head off, its a wonderful landscape.
  • Weak support Its OK, the picture captures the top of Lumbridge Castle well File:PenguinHD fmv.pngYingpinguTalk Contribs #File:Mining spot map icon.png 16:14, September 10, 2009 (UTC)

Ape Atoll Agility Course(2)

Ape atoll agility course entrance.png

Description: The entrance to the Ape Atoll Agility Course.
Reason: This image is incredibly bright and vibrant and shows one of Runescape's more exotic areas. It is also a replacement image due to the other one being unanimously disliked.

  • Support - As nominator.Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 23:13, September 13, 2009 (UTC)
  • Support, Comment - More fun with the server cache I see! I think maybe it is best to wait a day or so until its completely sorted out before renominating. Although in case you don't, I support the one where you're looking kinda down on the monkey bars with the waterfall going under you, and if that is in fact the version you are nominating, this one, if direct linking works. Its very dynamic and colorful and the colors are well balanced. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 00:48, September 14, 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - That angle makes the height of the monkey bars look very dramatic. It also has lovely colors.  Magic-icon.png HS F07gano Thieving ‎ 00:52, September 14, 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I just don't like it. It's very chaotic. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 05:24, September 14, 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - Amazing what a little Camera shift can do ;) Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png
  • Support - Awesome angle, it adds a lot of interest. I think that's why I like it, its different from a lot of other pictures Wink --ↁƗҼŚ ỈƦẲ  02:52, September 17, 2009 (UTC)
  • Support! - I love the theme, the waterfalls, the centeredness of the bridge, and the angle of the shadows of the palm trees. The camera angle might have been improved by lowering it to capture height of the waterfalls more effectively, but the image is near perfect without that.Anincent 01:46, September 18, 2009 (UTC)

  • Oppose - Not really clear it's a Sub. If it wasn't for the water and you telling me it was a Sub, I would say it wasn't. Per all. --George10 98 22:29, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Varrock Sewers

Varrock Sewers.png

Description The Varrock sewers, where giants and rats lay.
Reason I happened to come across it and I thought it should be featured for its level of detail.

  • Support as nom. ShinyUnown T | C | E 13:07, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
  • SupportOppose: - I don't know... I think it's that glow in the liquid that makes it look so... real... Per Caleb, actually - and the torch in the top left-hand corner casts a square on the water making it look too patchy {Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png
  • Soft Support - Nice detail and glow feels nice. Runecrafting.gif Mo 55 55 Talk|Sign 19:12, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Most of the image is too dark, making the details hard to make out, especially when the image is at such a small size. C.ChiamTalk 07:22, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - It's dark, while the glow and torch brightens it up to give it balance. It also contains everything (skeleton, torch, rats, pipes, bodies, etc.)  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Chog1234 (talk).
  • Oppose - It lacks the "WOW!" Factor that a featured image should have. I don't want to see some dirty sewers in the main page, no offence :S Makxtrl Talk 16:26, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Support - The angle is perfect, and the detail is nice, I like that pyramid! Makxtrl Talk 23:37, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Neutral Support - Its got perfect angle/detail but if the player was removed (thanksgiving emote) then it would make a wonderful image. Runecrafting.gif Mo 55 55 Talk|Sign 09:42, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
    I removed the player. --— Enigma 16:56, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

    Comment - I could possibly index it. I did a test run with as little of changing the look of areas, and got around 418k file size.

  • Weak oppose The angle is pretty nice, but it could be better. The player is mostly hidden which is nice. The biggest problem I have with the image is the fact that Thurgo is captured mid-step which looks pretty awkward. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 23:25, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Oppose - Changed my mind, I don't like the roofless wood building. Makxtrl Talk 02:36, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Per Gragon - looks really out of place, terrible angle (I think it'll be better without the slope on the left), and no - I'm not saying anything about the player because he is hidden, in sorts. Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png

Aquanite

Aquanite.png

Description The Aquanite, in all it's grace and beauty.
Reason I think the Aquanite's textures look great in HD. The colours are also eyecatching and the Aquanites seem to be graceful by the way they stand up tall.

  • Oppose - I wouldn't say it has grace and beauty. It looks like retarded fish to me, and I don't get the eyecatching colours part - it's dark green with hints of blue. Seems like a clash to me <_>' Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png

Ape Atoll Agility Course(1)

Ape atoll agility course entrance.png

Description: The entrance to the Ape Atoll Agility Course.
Reason: This image is incredibly bright and vibrant and shows one of Runescape's more exotic areas without the distraction of a player. Also highlights in particular the Runescape engines shader and anti aliasing capabilities.

  • Support - As nominator. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 02:08, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I feel as if its too cramped. The waterfall (which in my opinion is the most interesting part) is cut off, and the cliff dominates the left side, leaving the right side empty and off balance. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 01:31, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
    • I see what you mean. Unfortunately after revisiting the spot in order to obtain a better angle, I found the camera is naturally locked either straight up or down so you have zero control. The best I could manage would be to cut the photo almost in half which I feel would defeat the point of having an image featured that is not high resolution. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 09:32, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I understand that the camera was locked, but it's a very odd picture. It seems like you want everyone to see the signpost. And, I'm not sure if it's just my eyes (pretty tired today) but it looks rather blurry Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png
  • oppose - I cant see nothing here... this image sucks Heal Group icon.pngShadow guy15 TCEHeal Group icon.png 17:45, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
    • There's really no need to be so harsh in your appraisal. Yes, the image could be better, but it certainly does not "suck". kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 17:49, September 10, 2009 (UTC)

  • Oppose - Too much tall grass in the way. Most of the image is fine otherwise. C.ChiamTalk 10:46, September 12, 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I only see a hill, some water and a signpost. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 15:53, September 12, 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment - After playing around with it for a few days after reading the responses, I have uploaded a new picture at what I believe to be a much better angle. Having some trouble with the cache, don't know if its me or wikia, if the old image still shows up just click the picture once here, and once again on the images page to see the updated version. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 03:12, September 13, 2009 (UTC)
    I thought it wasn't allowed to replace the image until after its nomination and nominating it again? Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 10:14, September 13, 2009 (UTC)
    You're right. With such a change, I think it might be better for you to wait until this nomination is over and renominate, Tebuddy. I liked the version with more focus on the agility course btw. C.ChiamTalk 10:20, September 13, 2009 (UTC)
  • I don't see a rule against such a thing in the rules above, and I have indeed replaced an image with a failing vote only to have it rebound before. The I look at it, it just seems like more work to wait four entire days then reupload and remake it. I will probably forget as well.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tebuddy (talk).
    I say we close this vote, archive it, and start a brand new one. Its pretty clear that Tebuddy has conceded the image that was originally voted on. Remember, we're supposed to ignore all rules when they stop us from doing something useful. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 20:56, September 13, 2009 (UTC)
  • Closed - Nomination is being removed in order to reupload a similar image of better quality. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 23:07, September 13, 2009 (UTC)

Sea Slug Shrine.png

Description: The entrance to the Shrine of the Sea slugs.
Reason: Very nice textures and details, good angle, interesting image.

  • Support - as nom. C.ChiamTalk 08:32, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Try another angle with the ship dont gets croped, or that the ship doesn´t apear Heal Group icon.pngShadow guy15 TCEHeal Group icon.png 09:28, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Per Shadow. Always try different angles until ones best.
    Sigh, I don't take screenshots. If I find an image that catches my eye, I nominate it. Therefore, asking me to try to take the screenshot with another angle is more or less pointless. In any case, the focal point of the image is not the ship, but the ruins/entrance. C.ChiamTalk 14:29, September 9, 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - The focal point may not be the ship, but its still there and the flaws with its representation cannot be ignored. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 15:10, September 9, 2009 (UTC)

Reason: In this picture, there is alot of colours which makes it eye-catching. It shows beauty aswell, and the little floating bubbles add to it!

Seriously? What's wrong with my RSC graphics?. Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png
  • Weak oppose - Its really nice, but I don't think its centered well enough. On the left side, there's a bit of land that's just baaarely cut off. Also, on the right side there's this suddenly white land mass and its cut off. It draws the eyes to the right, especially since its the only white thing there.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Psycho Robot (talk).
Yeah, I wasn't to happy and wanted to take the picture again - let's see with your suggestion. Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png
I didn't take the picture again, I simply removed the white island, and I couldn't do much about the cut-off land without ruining the picture. Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png
  • Oppose - Too much blackness. Not enough to look at. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 10:43, September 12, 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - While I do like the general look and feel of the area, I think it's a little too plain with all the beige. C.ChiamTalk 10:46, September 12, 2009 (UTC)
  • Slight Oppose - Not very detailed. Everything looks the same. Everything's either black or beige. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 15:53, September 12, 2009 (UTC)
