Okay, this power is already pissing me off, having people switching pics back to what they were when the new one is better, for example, Death of the Endless.

That picture displayed now is from a comic printed 20 years ago, I purposely uploaded the most recent picture I have of her (still like 7 years ago) for better accuracy and made it the main image but someone keeps switching it back...

so in short, I'm complaining that Viners have the ability to switch main images cause they always switch it back to a worse choice -_-

this is a bug you need to put it in the bug report forum

#3 Posted by Hawk (15833 posts) - - Show Bio

it's not a bug?

#4 Posted by aztek_the_lost (28224 posts) - - Show Bio

this isn't a bug, its an ability Viners have been given and are now angering me by using it to put up images worse than the ones available

-_-

this is exactly what I'm complaining about

the displayed pic is supposed to be something recent, something that best shows the character at the present, so in other words, it was perfect the way it was...

Not really. That pic really didnt show Psylocke as Psylocke, it looks a bit dated but not too dated. I saw a pic that in my mind showed Psylocke off

I dont change many for the sac it pisses people off..which is evident

*coughs*

oh well, you could have just said that then :P

but I still think the pic should be more recent

also whoever is changing displayed pics to something other than the comic book character itself should be thrown out on the street and beaten -_-

maybe a better solution would be that anyone with a high number of points (don't know how much it requires) choses an image to be changed and then it waits for aproval by any mod

just an idea

it requires 5000 I believe and it won't make a difference really, its soooo easy to get points nowadays that nothing will stop the people who to attain the privilege

I still say that the mods supervising the image change by it going to aproval trial is a good idea lol but ok

oh, oops, missed that part :P

I guess that'd be a good idea as long as I'm the profile pic mod :D

Might as well just go back to having image changes done through that one thread if you're going to put it in the queue, at least there people can talk about it & come to a consensus if there's an argument. We don't moderate anything a user does after they get to 1000 points now. Personally I don't want to spend time wading through aztek vs whoever's battle to get the image they like set as default. Complain about it too much or abuse it & it'll go back to the way it was more than likely.

As for the Death pic, whats wrong with the one thats there now? Put the pic you want in the main body of the overview if you want it on there so bad or vice versa. The whole most recent image thing gets out of hand, Gwen Stacy's page should be her rotting corpse? We end up with Ms. Sinister set as Mr. Sinister's default, Red Hulk on the main Hulk page, so on and so forth. Thats the way some users choose what they want to set as default, personally I go with one that looks best.

well, I just think the displayed picture should do its best to show the character as they are presently in comics while still looking like a good pic, I understand if there are some exceptions but the vast  majority should be the current character, sort of like how wikipedia updates there pics for comic book characters as a change happens in their appearance
#28 Posted by Shatterstar (4590 posts) - - Show Bio

Whens the last time Death was in a comic? 2003 according to what we've got. So if in her last appearance she wears a funny hat & a hello kitty tee through the whole comic, her default image should be Death in a funny hat & hello kitty shirt until DC has to use her again a decade later?

(is Aztek)

well...*swears under his breath*...I don't know what to say to that...I guess you have a point and I should stop being bitter that someone else wants a different pic displayed on her page then

but still, some sort of moderation on the changing would be appreciated or some kind of restriction, idk...

*is defeated*

#30 Posted by Shatterstar (4590 posts) - - Show Bio

If I were aztek, I'd put the old image somewhere in the main body of that overview on the left side like medium sized somewhere that looks good, then set yours as default. Or you can fill out her overview some more & become top points getter & you get final say regardless of what anyone else thinks.

wait, top points getter gets the final say?? how does that work?

*goes to implement first idea*

#32 Posted by Shatterstar (4590 posts) - - Show Bio

If I remember right since we first got the default image setting ability that was the rule handed down from on high the mountaintop. As far as resolving a dispute goes if you're the top points person, I've no idea, never seen it anyone make a hubbub about it.
