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.

I like big statues, and this one is big.

  • Support: As nominator. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 01:46, 10 May 2015 (GMT)
  • Support: I somehow failed to see the face at first, just thinking 'that's a nice rock'. Once I realized it's a statue, that's... marvelous. Weroj (talk) 22:23, 10 May 2015 (GMT)
  • Support: Impressive. Forfeit (talk) 00:03, 11 May 2015 (GMT)
  • Comment: Is it possible to get it taken in higher res? I like the angle and lighting, and it's an awesome subject, but some parts seem a bit blurry - not sure if that's because of the distance, or not. ~ Alarra (talk) 03:21, 11 May 2015 (GMT)
    • I can certainly try; this was before I realised that having "Depth of Field" on made things in the distance blurry, so I can see what it's like with that turned off. --Enodoc (talk) 07:54, 11 May 2015 (GMT)
  • Support: Looks very nice to me, and the blurriness is normal when you have Depth of Field on, so it doesn't bother me. --Vordur Steel-Hammer (TINV1K) 11:44, 11 May 2015 (GMT)

This is a really nice action shot. The angle really adds to the image and makes it feel like the dog is going to jump out of the picture and attack you.
