Usage[edit]

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

{{VIC
  |image=foo.jpg
  |most_valued_image_of=an X
  |status=nominated|supported|discussed|withdrawn|opposed|promoted|declined
  |orientation=landscape|portrait
}}

Parameters[edit]

image (Required)[edit]

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

most_valued_image_of[edit]

The scope of the nomination. Is expanded in a seperate row to:
VIC of an X

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.

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. Shall be updated during voting by the voter.

nominated[edit]

This is the initial state of the Valued Image Candidate. When it is first published for review. The VIC retains this state until a {{support}} or {{oppose}} vote has been cast on the image. The image can also be withdrawn by the nominator from this state by changing the state to "withdrawn".

supported[edit]

This is the state the VIC shall be set to, when one or more {{support}} votes have been cast on the VIC and no {{oppose}} votes have been cast. After a period of two days in this state, the VIC can be "promoted", thereby closing the VIC for further votes.

opposed[edit]

This is the state the VIC shall be set to, when one or more {{oppose}} votes have been cast on the VIC and no {{support}} votes have been cast. After a period of 48 hours in this state, the VIC can be "declined", thereby closing the VIC for further votes.

discussed[edit]

This is the state the VIC shall be set to, when there is at least one {{support}} vote and at least one {{oppose}} vote on the VIC. After a period of 48 hours after the last review comment, the VIC vote count can be used to either "promote" the VIC or "decline" it. If the number of supporting votes equals the number of opposing votes the VIC is kept in the discuss state.

withdrawn[edit]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 shall be added to the VIC. Howver, the user who has withdrawn the VIC, is allowed to change his mind and revert the withdrawel. On next VIC maintenance cycle the state is changed to "declined". Once in the "declined" state the withdrawel cannot be reverted.

[edit]

When a VIC has been in the supported state for at least 48 hours it can be promoted to Valued Image. An alternative path to promoted is via the discussed state as described above. Once promoted, the VIC entry for the image is closed for further votes and comments.

declined[edit]

When a VIC has been in the opposed state for at least 48 hours its candidacy for Valued Image can be declined. An alternative path to be declined is via the discussed or withdrawn states as described above. 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 unless there are strong mitigating reasons.
