the anti-aliasing tag for transparency[edit source]

I've been making a lot of transparent images now.. and an old thing to do states:

  • These still images should be replaced with better quality PNG images with anti-aliasing turned off (this allows for better transparency).

'This allows for better transparency' I beg to differ about this part, because it all depends on HOW you apply transparency on 4x aa.

The lines don't have to come out blurry, and no, artifacts shouldn't be an issue if done properly.

Not sure if anyone comments on this anymore, but I'd like to see this statement changed, I've got some images to back me up.

Images taken with the Orb of Oculus...[edit source]

I was checking through the Yew Grove earlier and I noticed that this had passed a while back. I was considering proposing a Wikiguild in regards to the outcome of my earlier proposal, but I believe that this kind of work would be much better suited for the Image Maintenance Wikiguild since it deals with improving images used on the Wiki. Would it be possible for the Image Maintenance Wikiguild to improve images used on the Wiki whenever possible using images taken with the Orb of Oculus? Also, would the outcome of my proposal be considered important enough to be added to the Image and Media Policy? Thanks for your time. [1] N7 Elite (Ready to talk now?) 04:06, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Also, someone has added a category for images taken with the Orb of Oculus, but not all of the images taken with the OoO are in this category. Could the Image Maintenance Wikiguild see about correctly categorizing the images taken with the OoO? Thank you for your time. [2] N7 Elite (Ready to talk now?) 04:11, April 5, 2010 (UTC)
I agree that the orb of oculus has been a really good thing for taking images, however saying that it is always best is a bit of an over-generalization. Usually the extra size of the ooo images is lost when its actually put on an article - they are scaled down. The average user won't notice or particularly care if the orb of oculus is used. As such i don't think its warranted to put it in the images and media policy saying that an image taken with the ooo is autuomatically better than an image taken without one. Also the orb of oculus category was deleted. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 20:27, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

Update to a discontinued item[edit source]

I've had a pickaxe handle in GE since their removal in February 2009, and at some point after the removal the icon got updated. Should I replace the earlier picture, or perhaps put the new one in the trivia section? A screenshot is here if anyone's interested. --Tiigon 18:08, November 25, 2010 (UTC)
