  • You mean this one? It's Palpy - Kwenn 17:29, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
    • Originally, that was an animated image of Sidious shooting Force Lightning in Episode 3, Someone (Silly Dan, I think), deleted it last night and replaced it with a different, non-animated image. 17:32, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
    • The image was changed because we do not generally allow animated gifs on this wiki. (If you'll check the history of the image, you'll note a link to a JPEG version, which has a smaller filesize and may look better.) —Silly Dan (talk) 17:34, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
  • If animated gifs aren't allowed, then why are there several of them at Category:Technical drawing images? 17:35, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
  • The first image was better, this one is preety boring, really, it was better, but, really, if GIF aren't allowed, why is there so many animated gifs?

    • Generally they're not allowed, though I think the animations on the Category:Technical drawing images page are an exception to the rule, as they are actually useful, providing multiple views of the vessels and different stats. Animations taken from the movies are not useful, as they add nothing more than as can be achieved with a still image - Kwenn 20:34, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
      • I don't think animated gifs taken directly from the movies qualify as fair use, either. RMF 22:33, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
