Page image is less illustrative as a .jpg: True Art Is Incomprehensible get usage counts

True Art Is Incomprehensible used to be one of very, very few pages that was allowed to have an animated .gif on it. The .gif was able to display the art work as a whole to the viewer while the caption provided little more than the name of the piece to show that the entire work is Exactly What It Says on the Tin.

However, at some point in recent days, the image has been replaced with a .jpg that now does not show the art piece in its entirety on the page itself and now requires an outside link to the original .gif image.

Personally, I'm not happy with a page image that requires that last step to be necessary to seeing an entire art piece. If someone on the wiki can't see the entire art work itself on a trope page about art work and has to go out of his/her way to click on additional links to see the full work, then I take that as a sign that the page image fails to convey a trope all by itself, especially when there are dozens of other incomprehensible art pieces that exist in still images that wouldn't require such a step to be taken in the first place that we could put on the page, instead, and simply leave it at that.

...Or we could just put the original .gif back on the page itself.

The original image needs to be put back; it's the one animated pic that Fast Eddie has specifically said is okay.
Mr. Dr.
Yeah, I agree. I liked the original one as well.

Meta Four did the replacement, but without an edit reason.

It should be okay to put the old one back, seeing as it was Fast Eddie approved. Just leave a note that he said it was okay.

The note needs to be reformatted so it's hidden.

Dammit, my bad. Accidentally hit the wrong key for commenting. Fixed now.

Can we get a lock on this?
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
