[edit] Deletion thread

I don't understand, why would you want to delete the same image that came before yours? This is perfectly .--Record307 Talk/Contribs 23:19, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

This .png is 138kbytes, and the .jpg is 19kbytes. The newly posted .jpg is also the original format, straight off of the original dev blog entry. LobStoR 23:25, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
But it's prefered to have .png files over .jpg.Record307 Talk/Contribs 23:47, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Not what I've heard, for images that are originally native .jpg format. LobStoR 23:35, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
I read that is was png in the upload policy.Record307 Talk/Contribs 23:47, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
I think that png would be better, too, because then if someone decides to later crop it, you don't lose quality every time the file is saved (and therefore compressed). But I can also see the merits of "if it's .jpg on the site, we'll keep it .jpg here" as a policy, too. I'm just gonna kick back and wait for one of the sysops to decide, as I don't really care either way. LobStoR 23:53, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Quote, HRWiki Standards, § 2.1 Screenshots (emphasis added)
In most cases this should be a PNG image uploaded to the wiki via the Upload file page. [...] JPEG format is generally only desirable for "live action" toons such as Puppet Stuff[.]
This is live action, right? Also, it's a photograph, which should almost without exception be in JPEG format. Also, as mentioned above, it's significantly smaller (by an order of magnitude). 00:04, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
BUT, it came from a website so .png?--Record307 Talk/Contribs 00:26, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Uhm... it came from the website as a .jpg file, so I think the ruling would lean towards NOT converting it. It's not a "screenshot" it's a photo - plus this is a copied file, not screenshot'd then reposted. The reason .png is widely used here is because the format compresses well when dealing with flat colors, like the 2D vector graphics of a Flash animation. Go read the Wikipedia articles on PNG and JPG if you really want to knock yourself out ;-) LobStoR 00:58, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
I have to agree that because it's a Photo, it should be a JPG. Delete ColdReactive
We basically have a separate standard for these images from the dev blog, which are posted as jpegs, and it is do not convert. - 19:44, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
