Administrivia / Image Pickin' Special Cases

Go To

Some pages on the wiki have a unique status determined in the Image Pickin' forum, which should be made clear in a commented-out tag at the top of the page. This status must be noted before making a thread in that forum to discuss whether or not to choose a new image or alter the image that's already in place.

Changes to these statuses will be noted in this IP thread.

The statuses are as follows:

    open/close all folders 

Standing for "Blank Until a Pretty Kickass Image Suggestion", the nature of these tropes makes them difficult to nigh-impossible to capture in a static image, and thus their pages are to be left without a pic unless/until a very solid suggestion is produced.

Pages in this category:

    No pic 
These pages' concepts are too squicky, inherently NSFW, or have too much potential to be controversial to bother having an image. The majority of these pages are set to this state by admin/staff fiat. This status can be overturned but will take a very persuasive argument to do so; if you have an idea, discuss it with the staff before making a thread.

Pages in this category:

    Don't change the pic 
For whatever reason, the pic is liked a lot by the staff. Even if it doesn't do a good job of representing the trope, chances aren't good that it'll be changed. Pics that have been selected to move a page out of the "no pic" zone also fall here (noted with a *).

NOTE: There was a long-standing rule that pages under Five-Man Band must be Star Wars characters (though Luke is on The Hero instead of The Leader). This rule is no longer being stringently enforced, but the pics should be left until good replacements are found.

Pages in this category:

    Multiple threads 
These are pages that have had three or more IP threads about them. In many of these cases, said threads have failed to produce a pic, decided to keep the current pic, or stalled out with no decision, which defaults to the page's current state. Thread requests for one of these pages that do not have a pic suggestion will be rejected outright.

Pages in this category:

    Pics from NSFW works 
These pages have images from works that are not compliant with The Content Policy; most had work pages that were cut from the wiki during the initial purge or after 5P review. Use of these pictures was cleared by the staff, and several have been kept on their respective trope pages per IP threads (noted with a *). Do not start a new thread to replace one of these images unless you have a solid suggestion.
