This one is fresh out of the namespacery action that is converting High Octane Nightmare Fuel into Nightmare Fuel, but also out of an Edit War about the image on its old page and the example-cut and index-conversion in the TRS thread. Also, it is much too large for the current index size.

Opinions? Keep, change or remove?

In uffish thought
I like the current image, but it looks very like the entirety of a piece of fanart. I've found someone on dA who it may well be by (their name was linked to from another page with the image and a lot of their stuff is creepy ponies, but it's not immediately obvious if this piece is in her gallery), so I'm dropping her a note to ask if she made it and if we can use it. I know that the image might not stay.

One question: Is this the picture that was involved in the edit war, or was it another?

[up]Yes, it was this. "Too scary" if I remember well was the argument for its removal by the edit warriors.

It is creepy yes, but that picture is fairly tame when it comes to the creepy department, at least in my opinion, and I'm not someone who tolerates this kind of stuff. Oh well, YMMV and all that...

Random stoopid suggestion: This one comes from one hell of a Big Lipped Alligator Moment in a crossover (not a Dark Fic):

"O... K... she's freaking me out now..."

There were actually only two tropers who had an impasse over the image, which was also resolved in the discussion page.

[up][up] The current's not bad, but I kinda like that one too.

[up] They are talking about ladders.

[up] Don't you mean stepladders?

I'd rather find one where the text isn't doing the heavy lifting. Maybe this image with cropping?

[down]That bad? I fail to see the problem.

One of the reasons I suggested my image is because it's creepy without being something that's "Too scary" or "OH MAN WHAT THE FUCK!?".

The current image is Deviant Art. Do we have permission to use it?

I messaged someone I thought might have created it, based off their other work, but I couldn't find it in their gallery so it was a guess. They wrote back saying they had trouble with the links, which were fine from my end; I've suggested Google terms that make the page the first hit, but have got no further response.

Do you have the link for the actual page on dA where it's from? Then I could see if I got the right person, and message the actual creator if I didn't.

As it is, we haven't got permission.

It's potholed to the original artist.

Oh God. I cannot believe I missed that.

Give me a little while to recover and I'll ask them for permission.

Telcontar, good sir, have you reached a resolution as of yet?

S/he's was active a couple days ago, but I haven't got a response. I've just sent off a very brief "reminder" note, in case she forgot to reply.

Well, that was quick! It must have just gotten lost the first time. Permission has been granted, and a link to the image's page on dA is fine. I really like the image.

[up] I'm assuming that the pic links to the actual dA page, so I added a permission statement. If this is correct, then this can be locked.

[up]It does link to the dA page, for me. And it's a good pic.

Good enough; locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
