Wallpaper suggestion[edit]

To begin with I'm not sure what the original intended idea behind this was but it's showing up in places you'd expect it the least, like suggesting the Buchenwald Slave Laborers Liberation would make an excellent wallpaper. Not sure if this is set automatically or manually but in cases like this it's ranging from... weird to outright offensive, depending on the viewer. KennyOMG (talk) 02:25, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi KennyOMG, the wallpaper suggestion is not something that has been done automatically. It appears because, and only because, the argument wallpaper=1 has been inserted as an argument to the template for this file page back in 2012 by Shizhao. I do not know why this user has chosen to mark this file page as a suitable wallpaper back then, but I agree it does not appear as the best editorial judgement as it could cause distress for users looking for potential wallpaper photographs. Of course users are free to use this image as a wallpaper if they for some reason want that, but in that case I think it is reasonable that they actively search for this image itself. I have therefore removed the wallpaper argument from this image again. -- Slaunger (talk) 17:02, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
I see, Slaunger, so if I see instances like this in the future just remove the wallpaper=1 part and be done with it? Thanks! KennyOMG (talk) 17:44, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
KennyOMG: That's what I would do. Be bold and remove it if you find an image is not in any way reasonable as a wall paper. If someone disagrees, they will revert and then you can discuss the suitability/insuitability of marking it as wallpaper. Remember in this process to also to be a open-minded though and show empathy for different cultures, gender, countries, religions, etc. regarding what is perceived suitable as a wallpaper. This particular case is rather obvious for me though. -- Slaunger (talk) 17:55, 10 January 2017 (UTC)


What's the reason that it doesn't work for ckb.wikipedia? I added the codes to this template too but it's still not working. Lost Whispers (talk) 19:40, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

You have to expand Template:Assessments/wikipedia, too. If it still doesn't work, please show an example so that I can look into it deeper. --Tacsipacsi (talk) 07:09, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
