The have a Picture of the week (I think it's 'of the week') on Memory Alpha. Should we haev one too on this Wiki? It would work more or less like quote of the day. KEJ 12:04, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Seems like this was asked before. Posting an image by itself can violate fair use right, I believe. -Fnlayson 16:01, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
    • Well, that's not exactly what I had in mind. It would have to be an image used in an article. It could also be accompanied by the link to the article. KEJ 16:40, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
      • I think it would be fine, just like KEJ mentioned, if the images were ones sspecifically used in articles. - JMAS 18:18, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
  • I think Sikon already explained this wasn't fair use. Pics have to be used to illustrate a point, not just splashed about haphazardly. 05:01, 20 December 2006 (UTC)
    • Well, if it's images already used in articles for illustrative purposes, then they can hardly be described as being "splashed about hapzardly"; especially if they are accompanied by a link to the article. This is no different than the use of images in the FA secion on the frontpage. KEJ 11:19, 20 December 2006 (UTC)
      • In FA they're still illustrating the subject. A lone pic on the main page doesn't illustrate a subject. I'm no expert; ask Sikon. 20:43, 20 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Why don't you check out MA to see how they go about it? KEJ 15:49, 22 December 2006 (UTC)
    • MA has a brief caption underneath the image itself, as does Wikipedia, i think. I belive this would satisfy Fair use. Jasca Ducato Sith Council Sith Campaign 21:26, 22 December 2006 (UTC)
      • This was already discussed voted on, and put down, I looked for it in the SH Archive but couldn't find it. Can anybody find it and put a link to it on this page? Roron Corobb Talk NR Seal 22:16, 22 December 2006 (UTC)
      • I think that a picture of the week would be fine. But, what if it were to be picture of the day?That would give us a broder veiw of the graphics. And would be, most probably, very appiling to a new user. I pleage my full support!--Yelman 14:24, 28 December 2006 (UTC)Era-reb
