i don't get at all what's happening in the image. it shows Picard being tortured (kind of), but it doesn't represent the trope, which is "people who are tortured so badly that they end up saying and believing the wrong things". the caption doesn't help either.

motion to pull pending any replacements.

Yeah, it's two faces, four lights, and a caption. Motion to pull.

I swear we had another thread on this... Either way, pull.

Pull, quality is not great and entirely caption-dependent.

rjd1922 thinks otherwise based on this post, but I agree that the current pic is bad and should be pulled. That previous thread was eight years ago, obviously screenshot taking and pic editing tools and our standards improved since then.

Okay, the actual previous thread was two months ago, so we couldn't have improved that much, but still...

Pull. JAFAAC is JAFAAC, no need to suggest weak kubis just because it's a well-known scene.

I voted as pull in the original thread, voting as pull again.

Looked like the past thread clocked out without consensus. Either way, I say pull.

This makes thread number three. Does anyone have a replacement in mind?

You don't mean no-nothing at all to me...

The thread I was thinking of clocked out, but the majority of tropers there (including me) voted (weak) Keep Until Better Image Suggested. Should we call those tropers here and see if they've changed their mind? Otherwise it seems like we're just ignoring their opinions.

Steel be with you.

[up] Hmm, from my count, the vote was 6 votes keep and 5 votes pull. Majority, technically, but the thread didn't close with a resolution, it was clocked. There was no consensus either way, and either way I wouldn't call one extra vote a clear majority.

Voting to replace, and for this trope, a picture of a door with the numbers "101" on it would be sufficient.

Mr. Worf, prepare a high-yield torpedo, and write on it: don't fu*k with the Sisko.

Since this is thread three (I forgot about the clocked out thread), we have crossed the Multiple Threads threshold. If anyone has a replacement idea, post it here so we could decide on it.

If no one can, we may have to settle the pull/keep debate via crowner.

Keep for the same reason as the previous thread.

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

[up]Agreed; I still vote Keep Until Better Image Suggested. This was also suggested in the previous thread: https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/madred_picard.png

Pull. I see the torture, but the pic is too caption-dependent.

Is there a way we can a high-quality scene of the page image, but with subtitles? I was thinking that that could work.
