Image Suggestion Thread (new crowner 13 May 2019):

Go To

This thread is dedicated for image suggestions for pages without pics. Guidelines:

1. If you have multiple suggestions you'd like to field for a single page, that can merit its own thread. Otherwise, use this thread.
2. A crowner will be generated with suggestions which will be voted on as normal:

  • The crowners will generally run 12-15 items at any given time and may go as high as 20 if there's a backlog of suggestions, so please do not add items to a crowner once it's running.
  • After 3 days, any options with a positive vote count of ≥10 can be put on their respective pages. After 5 days, this can apply to options with a positive vote count of ≥7. Anything below that will need to go the full 7 days.
  • After 7 days, generally the unprocessed options that have a positive vote count can go up on their respective pages. If, however, the overall vote count is very low or the ratio is less than 2:1, those options will need to be spun to their own threads. Options that are at a 0 or negative vote count are also spun to their own threads at this point, but if an option has a significant negative vote count (say, ≤ -4) it can go to its own thread after 3-4 days.
3. Suggestions will generally be processed to crowners in the order they come into the thread.

Wrapped up Crowner 90 — the options got borked by a redlinking test before I could make threads, but I think I got all of the not-enough-consensus ones. Please holler if I missed something.

That said, here's Crowner 91 with 14 suggestions, making us all caught up.

Suggestion for A Threesome Is Hot:

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_n8rshg3qcq1s3wy60o1_500.png
Does it still qualify as a "devil's threesome" if one of the two guys is a vampire and the other a werewolf?

[up]Cool, thanks!

Suggestion for Short-Range Guy, Long-Range Guy. It's potholed to Franchise/Marvel Universe since Hawkeye And Mockingbird doesn't have a page yet, and potholing it to either Hawkeye or Mockingbird doesn't feel right.

[up][up][up]Am I wrong in thinking the second suggestion seems more like the subtrope Chiaroscuro?

[up][up]I suppose it could be considered that, but I tried to avoid the more classical examples of chiaroscuro (think the yellows and darks of Baroque paintings) and aimed for a more general light/dark skyscape. I'd imagine any such illustration of that trope would utilize chiaroscuro in some fashion.

Suggestion for Complete Monster.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/monsterenergy.png
Unlike the product in this image, you wouldn't want to pick any of these villains up from a convenience store under any circumstances.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to night-vision-ify the picture.

Edit: someone else did it for me, and I am replacing the original with a night vision version.

As far as a Visual Pun goes, it works for me.

If we're looking for a Visual Pun, it would be better to find a literal monster as a Complete Monster.

The Temporary Blue Zelda Gang sounds good this time of year.

I stand by my suggestion, as in all seriousness, if we were to use an image of Elmo, that would just be confusing, whereas the energy drink works as a visual pun by itself.

Health sure is versatile. It's possible to be both light-headed and dim-witted. At the same time, no less.

Actual global example, like Dracula? The problem with that example is that we already have an image from live action films in many of the live action film subpages.

Additionally, there are too many monsters to choose from, so I think a visual pun is better.

I kind of like the suggestion for CM (the visual pun one). Jar-Jar or Elmo could be potentially confusing, while the energy drink is clearly a joke.

I like the Monster Energy pic, too.

How about this for A Birthday, Not a Break (not uploading here so I don't clog up the site with an unused picture)? Maybe it's a bit too grim.
