Featured images follow the same nomination process as for Featured Articles, but as they appear in a different section of the main page, a separate series of votes is held to decide which images meet the required standard.

For an image to be eligible for Featured status, it must be used in a UESP article. This is to prevent specially-taken beauty shots from stealing the limelight.

A gallery of older Featured Images can be found here. Similarly, the archives of previous nominations can be found here. Note that not all failed nominations are included.


[edit] Featured Image Process

[edit] Nomination

Any registered member can nominate any image at any time. Nominated images should be of high quality and meet the site's image standards.

To nominate an image, list it on the bottom of this page with a three-tier heading, (===Example===), and briefly explain why you think the image should be given featured status.

This is another great image. It appears cinematic, which is rare for the TES series.

[edit] Voting

After an image has been nominated, any registered member can vote to support or oppose each nomination. Each member can only vote once for a given image, but a member may change his/her vote by striking out the original vote and replacing it with the revised vote.

To vote on an image, state whether you support or oppose the image for featured image status. A vote should be in bold, and all votes must be signed. For example:
* '''Support''': <Comment> --~~~~ or
* '''Oppose''': <Comment> --~~~~

Commenting with your vote is optional, but if you oppose a nomination, please state how the image must be improved to get your support for featured status.

If you are not yet ready to vote but would still like to add your thoughts, you may use:

* '''Comment''': <Comment> --~~~~ or
* '''Question''': <Question> --~~~~

And fill in your concerns or questions.

[edit] Decisions

UESP Administrators will periodically make decisions on image nominations. Decisions will only be made if:

  • The image has been nominated for more than seven days.
  • Five or more votes have been placed.

Nominations not meeting these criteria will be left open until a decision can be reached.

Images whose nominations pass will receive featured image status on the front page for two weeks (which may be extended up to one month if there is a shortage of images), and receive a small bronze star (Featured star.png) on the top right corner. If an image achieves featured status before the present featured image's time expires, it must wait its turn.

Looked like we could add another FI to the line. I believe to his one is interesting seeing brother Martin kick some booty!

  • Comment: This was already put up for nomination and no consensus was reached. I was strongly opposed to it then and I still am now. •WoahBro►talk 14:01, 5 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Comment: I'm aware. I nominated it, and I consciously chose it over this one along with all other Martin images on the UESP. I'm not trying to be obstinate or petty about that image getting shot down; what's done is done. But it was and is the best Martin image we have; this one can't compare. Every FI should be the best possible representation of its subject, and this image definitely fails to meet that standard. Insignificant RevisionsThreatsEvidence 15:36, 5 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Comment: I find the nominated image much more interesting than the one you linked ME, even though I ended up supporting it (I had to go back and reread its nomination to remember why I did). The image quality may be a bit better, but it's basically a straight-on picture of an NPC just standing there, while the nominated image is an action shot from an unusual perspective. IMO, we should be judging an image based on its merits, not how it compares to another image with a similar subject matter, and I think this image is FI-worthy on its own. --Xyzzy Talk 20:57, 5 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Oppose: I do really appreciate capturing the expression on Martin's face, but the agent's texturing at the shoulder is just ugly. Blurry with that weird seam down the middle, and the whole shoulder/pauldron is weirdly deformed. Since that's what is front-and-center of the shot, it really damages it for me overall. -- Hargrimm(T) 14:47, 5 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Support: The expression on Martin's face is perfect, given the situation. The angle directs much of the focus onto Martin, which helps to make the image even better. Forfeit (talk) 01:30, 6 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Support: I really like the expression on his face. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 01:33, 6 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Oppose: I Agree quite blurry texture in foreground detracts from image. Biffa (talk) 12:02, 6 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Support: Seeing people appreciating my work makes me happy. I can tell you that I've spent a while to get this shot. I needed to focus on Martin while he was fighting an agent, and making swinging an iron dagger look impressive was not so easy. Take into account that he needs to stand in the light, and you know those fights go all over the place... I went with this shot because I liked the expression of Martin's face, the sparks in his eyes, and his stance. I wanted to make him look fierce, and I think I succeeded here ~ Dwarfmp (talk) 01:33, 10 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Comment: I saw that. Safely standing behind a Mythic Dawn agent and having only them 2 fighting. Seeing a slash with painful aggression. Did you use the console? Big fan!--Tiberseptim2 (talk) 03:41, 14 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Support: I like the action captured. —MortenOSlash (talk) 17:16, 10 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Support: I've been thinking about this one for awhile and I wasn't sure about it for the longest time. Now that I look at it, I don't see any reason why I wouldn't support it. That blood splatter really seals the deal, wow. •WoahBro►talk 03:43, 14 September 2014 (GMT)
