Please change the image, Not only do am I tired of having MLP shoved down my throat but "Fluttershy" is easily one of my most hated characters ever to exist ever since some people made me watch the show. Replace it with something ACTUALLY cute and won't cause a shitstorm, like a Pikachu or something.

Um, both of these opinions don't affect the suitability of the image at all. Going to oppose here.
08:39:35 PM Jun 3rd 2015
But seriously, No. I am sick of seeing MLP everywhere I go. ((I would suggest a filter for anything MLP related but whatever)) But It's not cool to shoehorn Ponies especially into things like this. It's really an issue.

Dude, scroll down. This is the third damn-near identical thread about this picture. If you're not going to bother doing anything but whine, you're not contributing.

Best discussion on here. MLP is a little kids show, there's NOTHING "cute" about it. Change it to Kirby or Giggles (from Happy Tree Friends), they're cuties.

It genuinely boggles my mind how so many people (assuming you're not a sockpuppet, of course) can get so worked up over the picture, and yet not one of you actually tried to do anything to change it. It's rather sad, really.

Start an Image Pickin' thread with your suggestions and people can discuss it. However, I don't see any reason to change the current.

are you saying you don't like it?can we use a picture of a baby instead?i pick nermal

I don't know who drew the image, but it's a very good illustration; please do not change it to a baby. You can start an IP thread (with a link to a suggestion) and wait for discussion about changing or not changing the image, but it's probably not worth the time.

I dislike the sheer amount of ponies that get shoehorned on this site, but this is a good use of one.
08:00:00 AM Jun 4th 2015
I don't think so. Especially considering Ponies are bound to bring up red flags. ((And many including me have a burning hatred for the show for a pretty good reason.)) I'd suggest we change it to something we can all accept: Pikachu, Kirby or even Dot Warner or something would all fit better IMO.
09:23:18 AM Jun 4th 2015
I'm sure Pikachu, Kirby and Dot Warner have their own haters. Unless you have something more legitimate than "I don't like the show" then you should let it go.
09:12:19 AM Jun 5th 2015
Except they aren't posted everywhere like Lauren Faust's "Colorful magical Horses". There is a reason Ponies are look down upon these days.

Stop it. Seriously dude, just stop. If you can't be bothered to actually make a suggestion, you have no room to talk. So stop your complaining.
11:10:33 AM Jun 5th 2015
All I'm saying is to change the image and not shove ponies into EVERYTHING. Is that so hard?
11:18:24 AM Jun 5th 2015
Mario123311, it's not being "shoved into EVERYTHING". The vast vast majority of pages don't have MLP images, and "I don't like these images" is not a valid arguments for changing images nor will it convince anyone to change them. On the contrary, it may convince someone to request/issue a ban on you for disruptive conduct.
12:58:27 PM Jun 5th 2015
Fine then, I will stop. ((I still don't like the image here but I won't request or complain anymore.))
09:17:22 PM Jul 17th 2015
This may be a bit late to the party here but I'll give my two cents on this. While I'm fine with Fluttershy being the character image due to her personality encompassing the most common uses of the trope in question, I do think we should avoid using fan art for page images. I'd prefer we have an actual screencap or something just to keep things consistent.
12:16:29 PM Sep 24th 2015
We should avoid using MLP for a trope picture, it just sucks.
06:26:27 AM Oct 26th 2015
Avoiding fan-art for page images never was a consideration on this Wiki. Plenty of page images are fan-arts, just check the image source subpages. If a a fan-art fits best as trope illustration, it fits. Getting authorization from the artist is best, but not always possible.
09:25:54 AM Oct 26th 2015
I'm not entirely sure if the image is even fanart in the first place, as it looks very similar to Lauren Faust's concept art for Fluttershy back before she was even supposed to be a pegasus, (she was originally conceived without wings) however, I don't exactly have the time to verify my assumption right now...
