File:Neon.JPG, not delisted[edit]

Voting period ends on 26 Jul 2009 at 19:35:43
Misleading image of a sample of neon!

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info This does not actually have any neon gas in it! (seeFile:NeTube.jpg). Something this misleading should not be featured! (Original nomination)

  • Symbol keep vote.svg Keep This looks like a usual neon light to me, and I don't think that it's misleading. BTW, you have to be logged in to vote. --Lošmi (talk) 02:14, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
It's misleading because it says "Neon", NOT "Neon sign". As the tube is definatly not filled with neon, it is definately misleading! 18.251.7.152 06:01, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist Voters were mislead when they voted for it to be featured. Also no wow.--Tired time (talk) 23:34, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I don't agree that they were mislead. As Tony Willis said, this is not meant to be association for a gas, but for a neon sign, or neon light. This is a picture of neon light, not a gas. --Lošmi (talk) 01:02, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment They were. Read their comments in the original nomination. Here I'll cite the most obvious ones, that prove my point: "The Idea is not new, as far as I remeber I saw a similar Artwork (Neon written in Neon-light) on an exposition about minimal Art..."; "It is nice picture because of the nice connection between text (subject) and object"; "...Those neon lights can be very powerful". You say, that it is not associated with a neon sign but not with neon gas. But neon sign by definition is made out of neon or other similar gas! The beginning of en.wiki article Neon sign says: "Neon signs are luminous-tube signs that contain neon or other inert gases at a low pressure". And "neon light" redirects to "neon sign" so it's the same. In a talk page someone already noted, that the lead image (which is this one) is misleading.--Tired time (talk) 08:29, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment What is it filled one if not "neon or another inert gas"? Plrk (talk) 14:53, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment --> wrong image describtion, wrong gas (chemical element) describtion, wrong categories. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 23:29, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
✓ Done Fixed description and categories. The subject is a "Neon sign", not the element Neon, the original voters were talking about "Neon signs" and "Neon lights", whether they understood that all "Neon signs" do not contain Neon gas is probably irrelevant. This is commons, not en:wp, a delisting proposal on the basis of image qualilty would be more appropriate.  :-) --Tony Wills (talk) 07:58, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
The image is still overexposed. It is possible to make it better. A quickly taken photo for example here. This is also a neon sign, but filled with known gas: pure helium. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 19:59, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
