UESPWiki:Image Requests

The UESPWiki – Your source for The Elder Scrolls since 1995
Jump to: navigation, search

On this page, editors may make specific image requests for use on article pages. Image requests should always pertain to content-related articles which are ready for the images; this is not a place to request images for personal use.

Avoid making general requests, such as "more pictures of the Battle for Solitude". A better request would be more specific, such as "the Stormcloaks at the outer gate before the Battle for Solitude". Try to keep requests brief, but if the subject matter isn't perfectly obvious, please explain your request by providing details, such as the context of the article where the image will be placed.

This page is meant for specific image requests for use on articles which already include a basic image. Note that the {{NeedsImage}} template should be used on pages which are missing basic images, and is automatically added to pages missing the image parameter in Summary templates for creature, NPC, and place pages.

Using this Page[edit]

Posting a Request[edit]

Please post your requests under the Images Requested section in a bulletlist format, and sign your post. Please add the most recent requests to the bottom of the list. Provide a link to the article page, specifying the game in your request. If requesting multiple images for use on the same article, group the related images into a list below said link to the article page, then sign below the full list.

Example:

Article: Skyrim:Waking Nightmare

ABCface 16:42, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Article: Shivering:Through the Fringe of Madness

Alphabetface 19:18, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

NOTE: If you post a request, please realize that it takes time to take good images; therefore, please consider your requests carefully so image providers don't waste time taking images you don't need.

Fulfilling a Request[edit]

If you fulfill a request, please strike out the request by using <s> at the beginning and </s> at the end, then add a link to the uploaded image directly below the request with your signature included. Do not add the image to the related page; the editor who requested the image should do this themselves. Try to avoid adding thumbnail images. Make sure that the images you upload follow the site's image guidelines.

Example:

Article: Skyrim:Waking Nightmare

ABCface 16:42, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Article: Shivering:Through the Fringe of Madness

Alphabetface 19:18, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

NOTE: If you fulfill a request, please realize that the author of the article has spent hours, maybe days, writing the article and is hoping for top-notch images that convey a particular message to match their work. The author can therefore request a new version of the image even if the provided image meets all the normal requirements of an image (size, quality, clear picture of the subject, etc.).

Removing a Request[edit]

Only the editor who requested an image should remove the completed request. That editor should first add the new image to the corresponding article before removing the request from this page.

In exceptional cases it is permitted to remove requests made by other people. Examples include:

  • Completed requests where the user has 'forgotten' to remove the request themselves.
  • Images required within a time limit (this applies mainly to ESO due to the nature of patches).
  • If the original poster is inactive, the request should not be removed unless completed. The image taker should add the image to the linked page, remove the request, and place a post on the requester's talk page notifying them.
  • If an inactive user has requested images for an incomplete sandboxed version of an article, the request may be removed without completion, unless the image requested would benefit a future, updated, live version of the article, then it should be left until completed.

In any case where you do remove a request it is recommended that you contact the original poster on their talk page.

All Skyrim Place requests for Biffa User:Biffa/sandbox/image requests Thank you. Biffa (talk) 16:30, 30 March 2014 (GMT)

    • If anyone's around that could possibly help fulfill any of my image requests found on the page noted above I'd be really grateful. Biffa (talk) 04:18, 13 December 2014 (GMT)

Article: The Towers

I'm working on a lore article for the Towers, and it could some more images from ESO:

  • A better image of the Direnni Tower
    • Just a comment, there's a poor quality version available here. —Legoless (talk) 13:12, 6 April 2014 (GMT)
      • Indeed, but I find the Daggerfall image preferable to that at the moment. Way too obscured there. I'm hoping that players have found or will find a better way to grab an image of it. Minor EditsThreatsEvidence 13:26, 6 April 2014 (GMT)
        • I think it will be difficult to get a non-misty image, as apparently it's not possible to swim out too far towards the isle. Here is an imgur gallery of two shots, not great, I know. --Jimeee (talk) 13:43, 11 April 2014 (GMT)
          • I think those demonstrate that we can at least get an image with better resolution. The mist is tolerable (even thematically appropriate), but the current ESO image Lego linked to from the beta is sub-par in terms of quality. Insignificant RevisionsThreatsEvidence 14:21, 11 April 2014 (GMT)
  • A better image of the Red Mountain (if possible).
  • An image of the Crystal Tower (if possible).
    • It isn't visible in ESO. —Legoless (talk) 18:24, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
  • An image of the Elden Tree and/or the Orrery of Elden Root.
