Images processed for delisting from Wikipedia:Featured pictures

Image:USS_Port_Royal_CG-73.jpg

  • I don't know exactly where to put this, I hope it is o.k. to bring it up here. The image [1] (if you don't know it already you really should have a look at this--it's amazing). To make a long story short: I don't want to replace a featured picture, therefore I would like to have a go from you first. A comparison of both images can be found on User:Marco_Krohn/USS_Port_Royal_CG-73 the first one being the current one, the second one my suggestion. -- mkrohn 23:21, 6 Feb 2004 (UTC) -- update: I just replace the image. -- mkrohn 10:18, 7 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • it's look way better !!! i second the replacement --Chmouel Boudjnah 00:26, 7 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Thirded. I downloaded the tool you pointed to but couldn't install it, it didn't find some .dll file? I'll have to wait until the computer techie comes home I guess. fabiform | talk 00:43, 7 Feb 2004 (UTC)
      • Oh, and if there are featured photos which didn't go through due process, perhaps we should vote on them all like they're doing at the moment on featured articles. fabiform | talk 00:43, 7 Feb 2004 (UTC)
      • I use the linux version and this one works very good though the image inpainting is limited to mono(!) images :-( -- mkrohn 10:18, 7 Feb 2004 (UTC)

USS Port Royal (CG-73)

USS Port Royal
  • Been here since before the voting procedure was in place, and I never could understand how it made the cut. It's a ship picture, from the U.S. Navy. We have scores of these, this one doesn't seem any more special than any of the rest of them, to me anyway. - Hephaestos|§ 03:03, 19 Mar 2004 (UTC)
  • Agreed. I've wondered why it's been "featured" so long as well. -Minesweeper 04:05, Mar 20, 2004 (UTC)
  • Agree, this should be removed. fabiform | talk 03:00, 22 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • I actually think this is a particularly well taken photo, w impressive film queality, but because I am unimpressed with the ship itself, and its setting, I won't oppose removing it. Sam Spade 23:01, 23 Mar 2004 (UTC)
  • In the Archive there is a record of an earlier attempt to delist this picture. Do we have a "double jeopardy" like policy or is it fair game to try and try again? - Bevo 20:56, 25 Mar 2004 (UTC)
  • Our featured pictures should be brilliant, so I have no problem to remove this one. The second round of this removal just underlines that it's a common opinion. — Sverdrup 20:58, 25 Mar 2004 (UTC)
  • Oppose delisting. This cleaned up version of the picture is quite detailed and certainly fits the subject of the article. - Bevo 21:13, 25 Mar 2004 (UTC)
  • To address some points: I don't think it involves double jeopardy since the original move to delete concerned the non-cleaned-up version. I agree mkrohn did a fantastic job cleaning out the noise, but there's only so much to work with in this picture. To be blunt I think it's a bit boring; certainly no better than HMSDreadnought.jpeg; we can't put them all on featured pictures. - Hephaestos|§ 02:34, 29 Mar 2004 (UTC)
  • At this point (well past a 14 day voting period) it's 4 Supporting delisting and 1 Opposing delisting. What happens next? - Bevo 20:54, 6 Apr 2004 (UTC)
