  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It's been a while since we've had a set nomination, and I think all of these pictures are worth promoting. They show some interesting formation flying by VFA-204, the Louisiana-based 'River Rattlers', who fly F/A-18 Hornets and F-15 Eagles.

  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question: Why is everybody against ammunition or machine guns because they are war propaganda and glorify the war, but nobody is against jet fighters for the same reasons? --Kabelleger (talk) 18:10, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
    • I believe I can answer that, but the answer would be highly unfavourable to some people. Smile Wolf (talk) 19:08, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Yay, airplanes! Wolf (talk) 19:08, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question (and sarcasm at the same time, as courtesy to the nominator Smile) Would it be possible to make the filenames even longer? Wolf (talk) 19:08, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
    • I was going to rename them like you asked, but based on the wait times from previous renaming efforts, I would have been here until February, and like a kid with a cool toy, I just couldn't wait. :P Sarcastic ShockwaveLover (talk) 02:01, 23 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question How does set voting work? If they were individual I would oppose number 4 for composition (planes not symmetric, and too far down the image), but would support the others. What should I vote? --99of9 (talk) 21:00, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Really? That's my favourite. Well, each to his (or her) own. Sarcastic ShockwaveLover (talk) 02:02, 23 December 2009 (UTC)
      • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I've decided I should oppose. Unlike at least one previous set nomination this set does not require all four to get the added educational value for being "complete", therefore I can't give any discount to my individual FP standards. I would support 2 and 3, would oppose 4, and would not vote on 1 (the cloud annoys me). 99of9 (talk) 11:32, 23 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain As 99of9 mentions, how should set voting work ? I think the guidelines should have a section about it if we should use it. /Daniel78 (talk) 21:13, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't like the idea of voting for a set. Why those pictures can't be nominated individually? --Leafnode 13:47, 26 December 2009 (UTC)
