A Wizard boyThis image was added just recently, after I namespaced the page per the TRS thread. It's a deviantArt image, and while it seems to be fine copyright-wise (4 out of 7), it's medium-specific and on a main page with medium-specific subpages. Shall we remove it?
I don't see the medium-specific part. The guy in the picture could well be reading news that his favorite book will be getting a film adaptation by a good director/learning about an improved re-release of his favorite videogame/whatever.
A Wizard boyHmm, I might have got the rule about medium-specific pics wrong here - other people?
Not sure about policy here - are we allowed to have an image on the main page if the medium-specific subpages don't have images? In that case, I'd just keep the picture, mark the sub-pages as pictureless and call it a day. Rationale: Depicting a fandom reaction for a given medium will probably be nearly impossible - in my opinion, this is as good as we can get.
A Wizard boyThe guideline is that images that point to a specific medium are undesirable on main pages. I felt that this pic pointed to some web-medium, since it is from a web-medium and looks like.
Avatar by NeoriceisgoodThe rule is medium-specific, yes. Reading a computer monitor isn't medium specific, since he could very easily just be reading a fansite reporting on news about his favorite video game/book series/television show/upcoming film/rock band/politician... I think this one is fine, so long as we have permission to use it. (I assume we do, given the link-back.)

A Wizard boyAs far as I can tell from the source link, the image is an excerpt of a bigger one, so it is fine. And I misinterpreted the "medium-specific pic rule", apparently. This can be closed, I'd say.
hi there. Just wanted to say that I am the guy who uploaded this picture. I wanted to clarify that I am a friend of the artist (Linker96) and I asked him if I could upload. He accepted this on the condition that I made a link to the original image. As you can see, that link has been made. So I doubt he will have any issues with the image being here :)
Myself, as drawn by me.It works fine to me, no need to remove it. As with any "problem" (the quotation marks are there on purpose, mind you), if it's not broken, there's no need to fix it.
I'm from Piedmont. No relation with Piedmon, mind you!
Anime-tedI added the "Used with permission" statement to the caption. 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.
