    When you spam the wiki with sloppy work and even images that are just flat-out wrong, it creates extra work for the wiki-masters. It means someone has to go in and clean up your mess, delete the wrong images, and re-stub the stubs that you were supposed to help fill.

    I hope this helps.
    1- People dont always have gold to spam buy the items like you do, And because simply you do this doesn't mean that others SHOULD follow and do the way you like to do things.
    2- If there's anything messy i actually contact Willow and tell her i messed something up immediately and ask her kindly to remove things
    3- Mistakes happen and i do always edit the category when i can
    4- I did this before. So i know what i'm doing.

Least make that rule active from the next wiki contest. Not this one's
    Oh my!

    Just to clarify - @Logan, Stephanie is interpreting Rule 5 the way it was intended.

    The rule was intended to help if one of your team members had been providing information here in the thread and it was stolen to update the wiki before you had a chance to do the update. However, all of the teammates competing in this contest appear to be strong wiki updaters in their own right, and so are making their own edits. Rule 5 does not apply to replacing images, so my statement is not a contradiction, just a clarification of judging standards.

    We aren't deleting the lower resolution images simply because they are lower resolution, but you have to agree they aren't the best they can be. The rules said they need to be "decent," which is a subjective standard, I agree. Those that don't show enough detail will eventually be marked as stubs for replacement with better images, so if Stephanie is replacing yours now, during the contest, it's only fair that she get the points.

    Okay so if the images appear to be decent WITH details enough showing it shouldn't be changed. That's what i wanted to know. Does anything like these for example show enough details @Willowdreamer? To make sure they aren't getting replaced for no absolute reason that is.

    Is any higher resolution image better in general? You mentioned that low-resolution Bazaar and vendor selection images can be replaced with higher resolution ones, but what about in general?

    Those images are okay, although I would prefer a tighter crop of the Hat. A screenshot of items like Hats, Outfits and Boots taken in the game with the pirate in front of a neutral background with good lighting is the best. In game is almost always going to be better at showing detail overall than an image from a purchase window. Crown Shop items and PvP weapons have been acceptable from the purchase window because getting them in-game isn't always possible.

    In general, higher resolution is better. We may not all have the same resolution available on our computers, but we can all tell whether an item is being shown in a purchase window versus in-game, or well-lit versus dark and murky.

    To be fair most of his images ARE clear and legible. Unless they aren't they should be counted.

    (I may be late to this but putting in my two cents for my team partner.)

    Okay, that's the end of the contest -- thanks to all participants for their efforts.

    The wiki benefited greatly from the enthusiasm of our teams, that's for sure.

    Please be patient for the results due to the number of edits and uploads that we need to review.
