Usage[edit]

This template is for rendering valued image candidates in thumbnail size with a colored border depending on its status.

{{VIC
  |subpage=foo.jpg
  |image=foo.jpg
  |scope=bar
  |status=nominated|supported|discussed|withdrawn|opposed|promoted|declined
  |orientation=landscape|portrait
}}

Parameters[edit]

subpage[edit]

This normally - by convenience and default - identical to the image parameter. However the two parameters may differ if, e.g.,

  • The image is replaced by an edit with another file name
  • The image has already been in a VIC review previously, which means the subpage is already taken. For instance, when nominating an image in a new scope.

This parameter is used to generate the link to the review page of the nomination from the thumbnail overview on the nominations page and in the logs.

image (Required)[edit]

This is the image name (without the Image: prefix).

scope (Required)[edit]

By nominating an image for VI status you are stating that, in your view, the image is more valuable than any other on Commons within the generic scope you have specified.

Note that scope is not a simple description of your image. Rather, it defines a generic field or category within which your image is the most valuable example. Please read Commons:Valued image scope.

orientation[edit]

This is the image orientation parameter. The default value is landscape.

landscape[edit]

With this setting of the orientation parameter, the image is rendered at an image width of 120 pixels. With a normal 4:3 aspect ratio of a landscape image, this will result in a height of 90 pixels.

panorama[edit]

With this setting of the orientation parameter, the image is rendered at an image width of 207 pixels, which gives the same number of pixels as landscape and portrait assuming a 1:4 aspect ratio of the panorama.

portrait[edit]

With this setting of the orientation parameter, the image is rendered with an image width of 90 pixels. With a normal 3:4 aspect ratio of a portrait image, this will result in a height of 120 pixels.

status (Required)[edit]

The status parameter indicates the current state of the valued image candidate in the review process. This is updated during the review procedure. The valid (case-sensitive) states are listed in the following.

If the status parameter differs from one of the listed valid states a help message is shown to the user and the VIC is automatically associated with Category:Valued image candidates with an invalid status parameter. Under normal circumstances this category should not contain any subpages.

nominated[edit]

This is the initial state of the VIC when it is first published for review. The VIC retains this state until a {{Support}} or {{Oppose}} vote has been cast. If a candidate has been in the nominated state for at least 7 days it can be closed as undecided. The candidate can also be withdrawn by the nominator. All VICs with the nominated state are automatically associated with Category:Nominated valued image candidates.

supported[edit]

This is the state the VIC is set to when one or more {{Support}} votes have been cast, but no {{Oppose}} votes. After a period of 7 days in this state, the VIC can be promoted, thereby closing the VIC for further votes. All VICs currently in the supported state are automatically associated with Category:Supported valued image candidates.

opposed[edit]

This is the state the VIC is set to when one or more {{Oppose}} votes have been cast, but no {{Support}} votes. After a period of 7 days in this state, the VIC can be declined, thereby closing the VIC for further votes. All VICs currently in the opposed state are automatically associated with Category:Opposed valued image candidates.

discussed[edit]

This is the state the VIC is set to when there is at least one {{Support}} vote and at least one {{Oppose}} vote. The VIC may be promoted or declined based on a majority vote at least 7 days after the first vote and at least 48 hours after the last vote. If there is no majority at that time the nomination can be closed as undecided. All VICs currently in the discussed state are automatically associated with Category:Discussed valued image candidates.

withdrawn[edit]

The creator, uploader or nominator can withdraw the nomination at any time, when the VIC is in one of the the states: nominated, supported, opposed, or discussed. This is done by changing the state to "withdrawn". In the withdrawn state no further comments may be added. However, the user who has withdrawn the VIC, is allowed to change his mind and revert the withdrawal. On next VIC maintenance cycle the state is changed to declined. Once in the "declined" state the withdrawal cannot be reverted. All VICs currently in the withdrawn state are automatically associated with Category:Withdrawn valued image candidates.

[edit]

When a VIC has been in the supported state for at least 7 days it can be promoted to a valued image. An alternative path to promoted is via the discussed state. Once promoted, the VIC entry for the image is closed for further votes and comments. All promoted VICs are automatically associated with Category:Promoted valued image candidates.

declined[edit]

When a VIC has been in the opposed state for at least 7 days its candidacy for valued image can be declined. An alternative path to be declined is via the discussed or withdrawn states. Once declined, the VIC entry for the image is closed for further votes and comments. An image which has been declined as a VIC cannot be nominated for VIC again within the same scope unless one or more of the issues which led to failure has been addressed. Previous votes are reset upon (re)nomination. All declined VICs are automatically associated with Category:Declined valued image candidates.

undecided[edit]

When a VIC has been nominated for at least seven days without any {{Support}} or {{Oppose}} votes it can be closed as undecided and removed from the candidates list. An undecided VIC can be (re)nominated for VIC within the same or a different scope. In that case the existing review page is reused and previous votes (if any) are reset. All undecided VICs are automatically associated with Category:Undecided valued image candidates.
