Procedure for adding images to this page and subpages
The current procedures for adding images that have been promoted through QIC (either as listed by QICBot or manually from Consensual_review after a decision has been posted) are:

  1. ) Add images to the top of the appropriate gallery(s) on the main page. NB some sections have subgalleries. It may be appropriate to add an image to more than one section.
  2. ) Trim the gallery down to 4 images or only those newly added that day if more than 4. (images are normally left for at least one day on the main page, so I normally leave any overflow until I add the next days images).
  3. ) Add the image to the top of appropriate galleries on sub-pages. Some pages have many subsections and subgalleries. Also note that some galleries contain natural groupings. --Tony Wills 09:24, 25 October 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Also note that within the natural groupings there maybe further subgroups, though not necessarily subdivided by headers. When in doubt you can always ask me. Lycaon 09:32, 25 October 2007 (UTC)[reply]


Why is this image not approved?[edit]

Could someone help me understand what's happened here? This image [1]was up-voted several days ago. At that time it had a green box around it. Since I hadn't been notified it was approved I went yesterday to see what happened. I see the green box has been changed back to blue but no down votes have been made. Someone has made a comment without calling it a comment but does an unmarked comment remove/override an up-vote? If not, why is the image not approved?

  • Hi Jim Evans; about which photo you talk? Tournasol7 (talk) 13:28, 2 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • The link in my post above used to go to the image as it was shown on the QI nominations page. Now that it has been removed from the nominations page by QIbot it's going to be difficult to explain the issue. I had nominated this image [2]. It had been up-voted on the day it was nominated and had a green box around it signifying it was approved as a QI. Later it became a blue box suggesting it had not been voted on. This was incorrect so I began trying to find someone to see why. I had no success. Jim Evans (talk) 13:48, 2 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
In my opinion, reverting the image from "/Promotion" to "/Nomination" was wrong. If someone disagrees with a decision (@GRDN711: was this your intention?), "/Promotion" or "/Decline" should be changed to "/Discuss" for consensual review. Anyone noticing the mistake could have done this, even the nominator. Anyway, it is allowed to nominate an unassessed quality image like this once again. --Robert Flogaus-Faust (talk) 14:34, 2 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Hopefully you agree ... I've added the image to current nomination page at 21st September with "Discuss" instead of "Nomination". --XRay talk 14:50, 2 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Links to diffs would be really useful here... --Dschwen (talk) 14:51, 2 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Do you mean this link: Revision of 478329768? --XRay talk 15:03, 2 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I guess we are talking about Revision #469036765. QICvote is at least partly to blame. Adding a comment to a reviewed image, will reset the status to "nominated" instead of keeping it. Unfortunately, nobody caught that mistaken edit. The image should have been promoted. --MB-one (talk) 12:42, 3 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Delisting QIs[edit]

I wonder if there's a process for delisting qis? File:View towards Garibaldi Lake from Panorama Ridge (DSCF1842 - DSCF1844).jpg does not seem QI to me, because it is overexposed and therefore lacking detail on much of the snow. Buidhe (talk) 05:18, 24 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

AFAIK there is still no way for this. --Robert Flogaus-Faust (talk) 11:32, 9 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Is it allowed to re-nominate photos as a quality image?[edit]

For a few years now, I have nominated several of my photographs to be Quality Images. Some 121 received the affirmative vote, and a few did not pass the filter, some because they were not centered (it was fixed by cropping them) or they needed a perspective correction.

These days I am learning to handle the Gimp, and I wonder if it is possible to nominate these photos again, in case I make the pertinent modifications that, due to my ignorance, then I did not know how to do. Drow male (talk) 20:42, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
