Glitch/Gallery and all images therein

Originally, this page served a reasonable purpose. There were several glitch images that needed a larger home than the glitch page, so we moved them there. However, this page has become a trash-bin for many, many useless images that do little to educate the reader. Looking through the page, most of the images appear to be a result of a graphics error on the user's end, not the game itself. None of these images are notable, as only historical glitches need be documented. The fact of the matter is, if we have to create a new page to hold glitch images, we probably have too many. We don't need this page or any of the glitch images (with a few exceptions), so I feel all of them should be deleted.

Delete - As nominator. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 23:39, November 29, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - If you do this, would you consider deleting all images from Category:Glitch images? ----クールネシトーク 23:55, November 29, 2010 (UTC)

Frankly I don't think we need more than a tenth of the images in that category. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 23:58, November 29, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Oh, lordie lordie. We don't need this page. ʞooɔ 00:17, November 30, 2010 (UTC)

10%? I think it would be okay to keep a few, as others have mentioned. So where will we put those we keep?--Degenret01 00:49, November 30, 2010 (UTC)

I mentioned in the proposal that a number of them should be kept, but if that number becomes too large to be contained on the glitch page itself, then some of them must be deleted. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 10:18, November 30, 2010 (UTC)

Delete - Most, if not all of those images are incredibly minor glitches that actually don't really merit a screenshot whatsoever. Even though we aren't Wikipedia, their notability policy comes to mind. I looked at the page, and found the same glitch (Icon-less skillcape) repeated at least twice. Keep the ones you know are notable and mass-murder the rest of 'em. Real Nub 16:43, November 30, 2010 (UTC)

Wow wait - Only delete images that are duplicate glitches, like twice skill cape icon missing, [[:File:Cathy fishing glitch barb-tail harpoon.PNG|pointless images]] and keep combo glitches([[:File:Really odd glitch.png]] is better than [[:File:Legs invisible.png]]) so basically use common sense. If the glitch is not duplicate, not very minor, and used on other pages, don't delete it but discuss it first. Maybe we should make a list on the talk page of what images should be deleted. But at least don't delete them all. [[:File:StretchGlitchFairy.png|Some]] are nice ones. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 19:28, December 1, 2010 (UTC)

Umm... not sure what I should name my vote - Per Joey. I don't think the non-duplicate/non-extremely similar ones should be deleted. bad_fetustalk 21:09, December 1, 2010 (UTC)

Well, you could say one of the 3 suggestions here: Wow wait, Partial delete or Half delete Lol JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 15:27, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Partial delete - First of all get rid of duplicate glitch images, second see what images combine glitches if any then remove any images of the seperate glitches, then see whether any of the images left are noteworthy, those that aren't delete. What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 21:32, December 1, 2010 (UTC)

Half delete - Delete the ones which are plain useless and move the notable ones to Glitch. 222 talk 07:49, December 2, 2010 (UTC)

Delete - All of them except for the ones that are historical. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 04:00, December 4, 2010 (UTC)

Most glitches get fixed after some time. If we delete all non-historical glitches(so glitches that occur now) we won't have them anymore when it gets fixed... That way, no glitches that are worth looking at can be added.
Delete - Pointless images that have no true way of helping our project except causing lag on the page and encouraging the upload of low quality images. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 17:02, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

Proposal - I suggest we only allow approved images on the Glitch/gallery. That means: an user that has either rollback+ or cust+ must approve it to be added(else there will really be too much unnecessary discussion, and admins are busy enough already), and only then it is ok to upload the file here. Like at RS:CAPE/R, images have to be uploaded to a host site first. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 19:32, December 4, 2010 (UTC)

Definitely not. Not only is that not part of job description, that actually does break AEAE. ʞooɔ 21:39, December 4, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, but closing a YG thread works exactly the same: you have to ask someone who has more rights than you to close it. As this is a small enough discussion, i think people with less rights should also be able to close it. And as there are anough people who dump their glitch images here while we already got loads of those glitch images, i think only people who are trusted should be able to tell if they are ok to be uploaded. If you want, i won't do it, it is not about that i will be able to do it but the rest won't, it is just to prevent us being a glitch image host. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 18:09, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

Keep the images-delete the page

Move the images to glitch- delete the page itself.Defence-icon.png99 i fail Attack-icon.png 22:45, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

That defeats the purpose. It's a bunch of useless images, and Glitch is already an enormous page. ʞooɔ 23:04, December 5, 2010 (UTC)
I striked trough this vote, as you commented below with another opinion, so it looks like you changed your mind. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 18:09, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

Delete - No reason not to comply. ----クールネシトーク 01:20, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

Delete duplicates-keep the rest- people need to know the current glitches. Delete the duplicates, keep the rest.Defence-icon.png99 i fail Attack-icon.png 01:32, December 11, 2010 (UTC)

Delete not important graphical glitches. There are many after each update, they cause no harm and the get fixed within a week or two. Because of their low importance, they should be deleted. However keep these wich were/are around for longer time (e.g combining emotes - not all possible combinations, just an example or two) and some really interesting ones aswell (but there aren't many interesting ones). And of course, delete duplicates. There's no need to keep 1 image of every shield when their holding position was glitched. Dontlietome7 20:19, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

Strong Keep - Kewl page. Why would you want to delete it? ajr 23:24, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

Because it's a repository for useless images that are oftentimes not worth keeping? ʞooɔ 03:29, December 15, 2010 (UTC)

"oftentimes" not all images are. Therefore the gallery should still partially stay imo. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 11:28, December 17, 2010 (UTC)
The vast majority on the images on the page go something like "OMG I have a stretchy helmet I should upload a crappy JPG of it." ʞooɔ 20:10, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Magic User: It has some useless non glitch images and duplicate glitch images...I think the page just needs a good old fashioned cleanup. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.204.254.0 (talk).

Delete most - Almost all images, such as equipment stretch glitches, hat/hair related glitches, and interface glitches that are more likely caused by lag are pointless, uninteresting, and often times low quality/sd. I think that we should have one image for each type of glitch. For example, one stretching glitch, one hat/hair glitch, one interface glitch, etc. Its not necessary to have a million different pieces of equipment stretching. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 03:07, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

Delete most - Per Psycho. So many of the images are unneeded. Suppa chuppa Talk 03:13, December 23, 2010 (UTC) Delete most - Per Psycho. Delete the duplicate images and other uneeded images.--Recent uploads SpineTalkGuest book 03:18, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

Delete most - per Pyscho. LordDarkPhantom 13:43, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

'Delete a lot - 'A lot of the pictures in there are not glitches, and others are probably just photoshoped  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 72.93.241.242 (talk).

Closed. Images that are deemed to be actually worth keeping (which will likely be a small fraction of the slew of images this page contains) will be moved to the main Glitch article. Everything else will be thrown out the airlock. Use common sense when determining which images are worth keeping: If the image appears to be fake, is a client-side glitch, or is a duplicate, toss it. If you're unsure either way, lean towards keeping it and ask for a second opinion if necessary. The gallery page itself will be deleted once all the images have been processed; place it on speedy deletion with a link to this RfD. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 07:00, December 26, 2010 (UTC)
