This 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.
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.
The 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.)
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 :)
