I can't seem to find it with a general perusal, but I could have sworn that we previously had a CT vote on whether to white out the text from the text bubbles on comic scans. And I thought the result was that if the entire text bubble is visible in the scan, to leave the text, and that the text should only be whited out if the text is chopped off.
What brings this up is that I've been seeing comic scans uploaded lately with fully intact text bubbles with the text whited out. - JMAS 18:12, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
- Found it here. Result was "Comic speech bubbles may be blanked or completely removed. This remains optional." -- Ozzel 18:16, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
- I find leaving the text in bubbles is unsightly, so I always remove them from comic scans that I do. However, that's just my personal opinion. Greyman(Paratus) 18:22, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
- OK, thanks for finding and clarifying that for me. - JMAS 18:24, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
- I leave in the text whenever it's fully intact and gives the picture some context. However, that's not always the case. So either way is fine. -- Ozzel 03:09, 11 September 2007 (UTC)
