  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It is a stunning and very illustrative photo of these mountains. However, I prefer this version Image:Belianske Tatry from Jahňaci štít.jpg without text labels, as this can be used as base material for localizations in any language. I will therefore move this to an MVR and let it compete with that version. -- Slaunger (talk) 19:26, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The labels are in the local language, so don't need localization. Lycaon (talk) 22:17, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Well, they have other names in Polish. -- Slaunger (talk) 06:32, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Just to be very specific: With localization I refer to the general ability to use the image as base material for making translations into all relevant languages, like Polish being a specific example and possibly German, as mentioned by the nominator. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:08, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
      • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Would you prefer an SVG with embedded bitmap? Lycaon (talk) 21:38, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
        • Yes, actually, that would probably be the optimal solution. Anyway, I also understand the nominators last comment, and I agree there are pros and cons for both current versions, and there is not a clear winner IMO. -- Slaunger (talk) 21:52, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Only because I think the other one is more valuable to an international community. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 06:48, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It is possible that this peaks have names in German (some German minority used to live in the area), and maybe in Hungarian. No more I think. But names in Slovak are mostly used. --Sfu (talk) 07:01, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Slaunger is right that version without captions gives more possibilities. But what is the first need? I think it's version in Slovak. This the image that is really going to be used in articles. In German article I've found names for only two of the peaks. But whats more Germans are using Slovak name as first name (f.e. see de:Rysy, de:Gerlachovský štít). Polish articles gives Polish name as the first one. Therefore I think Poles are the only one not to use this image. --Sfu (talk) 13:04, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info I created and uploaded a svg version. Needless was it, because it's rendering badly. --Sfu (talk) 07:05, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
    Yes, there seems to be something wrong with the svg file. In the thumb display the letter "á" is displaced and when I download it and try to open it in InkScape, Inkscape says the image file is corrupt. However, if it worked, at it looked practically similar to the jpg version in the review size, it would have been my preferred version. Focus in VIC is the suitability for on-line display in Wikimedia projects. -- Slaunger (talk) 19:09, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
    I'd support the SVG too. Let's wait a few days for the fix (maybe mine if I find the time ;-)). Lycaon (talk) 19:16, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
    My firefox 3.0.1 is rendering it correcly. Inkscape 0.46 open it as well. I think the problem is with mediawiki. --Sfu (talk) 19:23, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
    Yes, the MediaWiki rendering might well be the problem when viewing in a browser. The files crashes on my Inkscape 0.46 on Win XP though. Strange. -- Slaunger (talk) 19:51, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
    Don't know how to fix it. I tried uploading a version that was surely saved as plain svg. Problem is still the same. I can try other things, but it's just a shot in a dark. --Sfu (talk) 10:33, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info I've uploaded a version that seems to work. --Sfu (talk) 06:43, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Greenland Dog
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info This is actually a pet dog, which is very unusual at its location in Greenland. The dog shown is in an overall better condition than the average working dog in a pack, see here for an example. So I am actually a little bit in doubt of which best illustrates the scope. Curious to hear what the reviewers have to say about that. -- Slaunger (talk) 10:22, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info In this edit some distracting elements have actually been cloned out. In case the line is found to be distracting, Thegreenj has made Image:Greenland dog upernavik 2007-06-02 sample.jpg, where the line is cloned out. Not very representative of the real situation though as this dog cannot stand still without the line! It would run around like crazy. -- Slaunger (talk) 10:29, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think I prefer the one without the rope, even though it has been retouched. --Eusebius (talk) 11:13, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
    Ok. I have opened an MVR on the occasion. Here is a link to the alternative candidate page. -- Slaunger (talk) 11:48, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Not a single roof is shown in its entirety. Why not geocode and nominate your image Image:Norðragøta, Faroe Islands (3).JPG instead? --MichaelMaggs (talk) 18:21, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
    • Answer : I find we are not always obliged to choose the flatter composition and I think we see more with several large parts of three roofs than with one, which in fact is just only one side. Though, as you suggest it, I will open a MVR. --B.navez (talk) 19:01, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I prefere this one. --Lestat (talk) 13:18, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I think the scope should be "Grass roofs" instead. -- Slaunger (talk) 15:09, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

      • Sorry about that. What a blatant exposure of my ignorance of the correct English word for it. I had not even considered that could be the correct term. Thank you for telling me. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:51, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

      I am sorry! I had not even considered that "Green roofs" could be the correct English term for a roof covered with grass. I withdraw my oppose then. An spin-off curiosity question: How would one write a scope dealing with roofs, which have the green color? -- Slaunger (talk) 20:57, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support All criteria met, and I prefer this version. The alternative image has a too complicated composition for best viewing in the review size in my opinion. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:57, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
