Forums > Senate Hall archive > SH Archive/Unused images deletion, part 1

Please use this thread for further discussion. This page will be archived shortly. -- Darth Culator (Talk)(Kills) 23:47, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

As was decided last Mofference, a WookieeProject was established (or hijacked) to handle the unused images. So we have, and we will be deleting a large number of unused images every week. The first batch consists of the first 150 images on the list. They will be deleted Friday the 24th of November. If you disagree with deleting any of the images in the gallery, please state so in this thread. The gallery can be found here. --Imp 16:10, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Round 1Edit

  • File:T1-B.jpg -- sourced it and found it a home. Havac 16:47, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Thanks. --Imp 16:55, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • I think Riffsyphon would object to his Wookieestress images being deleted, though you might want to ask if he still uses them. File:Wookieestress2.JPG, File:Wookieestress3.JPG, File:Wookieestress4.JPG --Xwing328(Talk) 18:39, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • I asked him on his talk page. --Imp 19:33, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
      • I still use them, but I made them for everyone to use. It's kinda hard to use all four at once to prevent them from being deleted. -- Riffsyphon1024 21:13, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
        • Alright, I'll take 'em off the list. --Imp 21:23, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
          • D'oh, they were never even on the list… I think Xwing got confused somewhere. --Imp 21:25, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
            • Haha, yeah, when I saw those, I was looking at the first 150 images on the unused images page, not the gallery. I hadn't seen the link for the gallery at that time. --Xwing328(Talk) 23:04, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Escapepodkotor.JPG - Gave it a home on escape pod. --Xwing328(Talk) 18:41, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • I don't think that image was ever in the gallery… --Imp 19:27, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:DarkWomanCGI.jpg was used to replace File:DarkWomanCGIcropped.jpg on the Dark Woman page since it is a better version. - JMAS 18:50, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • 10-4. --Imp 19:27, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Dgb7.jpg is now the primary picture on the Dagobah page. The previous picture was the promo picture of Kashyyyk from ROTS. I also added the source as the Customizable Card Game. - JMAS 18:56, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Thanks. --Imp 19:27, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:DroidArmy.jpg now has source, description, and two pages. --Xwing328(Talk) 19:00, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Thank you. Although a higher-res version should be uploaded. --Imp 19:27, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
      • Done. - JMAS 19:41, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:The_Natives_of_Mustafar.jpg now has Licensing information and a page to call home. - JMAS 19:08, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Danke! --Imp 19:27, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Moncal.jpg has summary, licensing, and a home. --Xwing328(Talk) 19:10, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Merci! --Imp 19:27, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Jedi_vs._Sith.jpg now has a summary, licensing and a home on the Darth Sidious page. - JMAS 19:23, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Thank you. --Imp 19:27, 15 November 2006 (UTC)r:JMAS|JMAS]] 19:23, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Atathoth.jpg now has summary, licensing info, and a home on the AT-AT page. - JMAS 19:34, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • It's removed from the gallery. --Imp 20:20, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Should we delete the images from the Unused images gallery once we've sourced, licensed and/or given them a home? - JMAS 19:46, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • No need, I'll take care of it, but thanks for the offer. --Imp 20:20, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Can anyone source File:Jasterlegacy.jpg? I'd love to give it a home on that article, but don't know the source. Havac 20:13, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Done. - JMAS 20:43, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
      • Except it's actually from Star Wars Gamer 10. jSarek 20:50, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
        • Thanks for the correction. Just saw that this same image had it labelled as being from Lucasarts. - JMAS 20:56, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
          • I deleted VT-16's pic and put this in its place. All is good. --Imp 20:59, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
            • Hmm, since VT-16 got it from Lucasarts, it's possible they had it there, too, in which case this version could also be from there. Thinking about it, it makes perfect sense if most of the Gamer images were pulled from Lucasarts' concept art, given the context of the article. jSarek 21:10, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Meena_tills.jpg now has a home on Meena Tills page. - JMAS 20:48, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • It's off the deletion gallery. --Imp 21:01, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Battle_Formation.jpg now has Summary. licensing info, and a home in 2 articles. - JMAS 21:14, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Removed, but it still needs a source. --Imp 21:18, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
      • I'm at work right now so I can't verify. But does anybody have Star Wars Chronicles: The Prequels. I'm fairly positive this image is found in it. - JMAS 21:46, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
        • Nevermind. I found it. It was also a Sith Snapshot over at the official site. I updated the image summary. - JMAS 21:52, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:SioBibble.jpg now in the Sio Bibble article in place of File:Siobibblenotsure.JPG, which was smaller duplicate image. - JMAS 21:57, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Removed from the gallery. I always thought he was a Sullustan… --Imp 22:03, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Somebody already took care of File:Bakura JA.png. --Xwing328(Talk) 23:11, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Traya.jpg and File:Heavyrepeatingblaster.jpg are both redundant. See File:Kreiadarknessatcore.jpg and File:E-web.jpg respectively. Enochf 23:16, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Tiecrawlerpreyavin.jpg taken care of. --Xwing328(Talk) 23:17, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Cortosis2.jpg has a proper home and formatting. --Xwing328(Talk) 23:37, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Drallalen.jpg added to Drall (species) article Enochf 00:50, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Can someone find which HNN File:Aksmoe.gif comes from -- and then reupload it as a jpg and put it in his article? Havac 01:25, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Done. Feel free to move or resize it. There's also a picture of his death if you want it. --Xwing328(Talk) 02:04, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:JemYsanna&Luke.jpg sourced and added to Luke Skywalker and Ysanna's talk page --Xwing328(Talk) 02:32, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Brakiss.jpg formatted properly and added to his own page. --Xwing328(Talk) 02:37, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Techno union transport.jpg sourced and put to use. Havac 03:52, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Shann.JPG Properly formatted and added to his talk page for future use. --Xwing328(Talk) 17:03, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
    • I don't see why you're moving images to talk pages—they're still as unused as before you added them, and aren't helping anyone at all. In addition, that image is terribly low-res. --Imp 17:07, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
      • Agreed. The goal of this IS NOT to get all of these images into articles. The goal is to get rid of images that are not needed by articles and/or not justified by Fair Use. The existence of shann.jpg is no more needed or justified now than it was before. jSarek 17:28, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
        • I was just following the directions on the unused images gallery page. "If an image is properly sourced and is of good quality and simply has no place in the subject's article because it is not long enough at this point in time, the image can be placed on the article's talk page with a note that it should be used when the article is expanded." If you think it's too low of quality, then list it for deletion. Also, if you don't want me adding them to the talk pages, please modify that statement. I won't add any more for now though. --Xwing328(Talk) 17:30, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
          • Well, I can't speak for whoever put that on that page, but it seems to me that sticking images on talk pages as anything other than a very temporary measure reeks of Fair Use violation. jSarek 17:37, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
            • Understood --Xwing328(Talk) 17:38, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
              • That was me. I brought it up here. -- Ozzel 17:54, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
  • I think File:Vima.gif should be converted to a .jpg if we want to keep it. --Xwing328(Talk) 17:30, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
    • If GIF files are converted to anything, it should be PNG. As long as there's no transparency, IE handles them fine. -- Darth Culator (Talk)(TINC) 18:37, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Done. Saved file in jpeg format here. Don't think I have the software to convert to PNG. Someone else will have to get that. -Fnlayson 18:45, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
      • If you want a .png, I can do that. Just let me know. --Xwing328(Talk) 19:38, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

The remaining images in the first round are overdue for deletion, so if there are any left you want, better get 'em quick! -- Ozzel 19:51, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

Last callEdit

I've just gone through and pruned the list one last time. The images will be deleted soon. Soon means whenever an admin feels like it. I have several things I need to do, so I may not get to them tonight but I will delete them myself if they're not gone in 24 hours. -- Darth Culator (Talk)(TINC) 00:42, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Nooooooo! You mean you're going to delete the PAIR OF SCISSORS? What will we do without those scissors? Enochf 00:45, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
    • All cleared out. The next batch will be deleted next weekend. --Imp 01:07, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
      • The next group of images is now up. -- Ozzel 01:11, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Round 2Edit

Round 3Edit

Brief tangentEdit

  • While we're on the subject, can we delete the goofy images on the discussion page for Rokur Gepta? I mean, I like tacos as much as the next fellow, but... Enochf 06:50, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
    • Haha. Tacos. -- Riffsyphon1024 18:53, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
      • Y'know, I think this topic could use a thread of it's own. I think we should have a proper procedure from removing images from talk pages. -- Ozzel 01:40, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Round 4Edit

Round 5Edit

Round 5 is up. Already reduced to 122 images by eliminating known dupes, useless fanart, and non-orphans. -- Darth Culator (Talk)(Kills) 17:58, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

Just a reminder: The purpose of this exercise is to put pics into articles, not galleries. The galleries are probably the next thing to go. -- Darth Culator (Talk)(Kills) 06:05, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

Round 6Edit

Maybe with each new Round that is added, a link to the updated gallery could placed at he beginning of the section, as well as the date that round will end. - JMAS 18:29, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

  • That moisture farmer is NOT Ariq Joanson. It has never been proven that this character is Ariq. This fanon originally hails from Red 6. I gave the picture a new home --Sompeetalay 18:46, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
    • Sorry, I wasn't aware of that. Thank you for correcting the mistake. -Solus (Bird of Prey) 20:33, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
      • Glad to be of service. Sorry if my reply sounded a bit harsh. But it's one of these recurring fanon thingies that make my skin crawl... --Sompeetalay 22:03, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
  • File:Coruscant executions.JPG dupe of File:Coruscant executions.jpg, which has superior cropping. 07:00, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Round 7Edit

Round 8Edit

  • Is this round 8, or did we skip one? Anyway, File:Zabr.png is a dupe of File:Zabr.png. YMMV which one is better. Some of my GB images are in this round... that's the Light Y-wing. Hmm. The entry currently just redirects to the Y-wing, but as you can see in the picture, this is a different critter altogether, with shorter nacelles. Don't know how many other sources it pops in. Enochf 20:58, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
  • File:Phlutiglancerdroid.jpg is a dupe of File:IG Lancer Droid.jpg Enochf 21:06, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
    • Um, are we even still doing this project? Enochf 19:25, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
  • File:Nym2.jpg now has a home here. - JMAS 20:25, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
  • No source, but File:Etti_IV.JPG has a home here. - JMAS 20:27, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
  • File:Anzat.jpg is a duplicate of File:Anzat 2.jpg, and tagged IFD. - JMAS 20:40, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Yes, we are very much still doing this project, Enochf. I'll end round 8 now. --Imp 17:48, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Round 9Edit
