Changing the profile image (the image in the article's infobox, or the top image to the right of the introduction for a large majority of articles) is one of the most common proposed changes to articles on Avatar Wiki. Due to the regularity with which profile image changes are suggested, Avatar Wiki centralizes these changes on this page.

Procedures

  1. The proposer posts their suggestion(s) here. The proposer must support their suggestion(s) with a sensible reason for replacement ("it is an accurate representation of the character/plot").
  2. Discussion about the proposal can begin immediately. An administrator may, however, decide to retroactively reject the proposal if it is felt it does not meet the required standards.
  3. If a discussion ensues and:
    1. no general consensus appears to develop between involved users, then a ballot will be placed forward among the supported proposals;
    2. the people involved are all in agreement and after five days no one else voices their objections, then the image can be replaced without voting.
  4. The consensus of the proposal is carried out after five days, starting from the last relevant comment in the discussion.
    • In the case of proposals that regard the image of a newly created page (i.e. one less than a week old), the proposal is carried out after 24 hours if every participant is in agreement. If at least one user disagrees, the discussion will carry on for at least five days.

In order to speed up the process, it can be beneficial to withhold your comments when you agree with the majority. Adding your own comment will reset the "five days without comment" waiting period for consensus.

I drew the World Map of Avatar in a better resolution so you can zoom in and even use it to print a poster. I printet one myself and it looks awesome. So I wanted to share my result to all Avatar fans. I think this is a grat place to share it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ginger97 (wallcontribs) 14:47, June 13, 2019 (UTC)

I do not see that this replacement is necessary. The image is resized to fit the imagebox, so having it at such a resolution is unnecessary. If people want a high resolution image of the world, they can easily find one searching themselves online. HAMMEROFTHØR (wall) • 16:31, June 18, 2019 (UTC)
I don't say it's necesarry but it would look much better in my opinion and it wouldn't hurt anyone. Did you try to search a better one? The last time I searched a better quality image of the world map I wasn't successful. I doubt the does exist any. Ginger97, 06:28, June 19, 2019 (UCT)

President

The current profile image for this article is outdated as Raiko is no longer president. I propose therefore to update this to the profile image for Zhu Li, the basic rationale for this being to just keep it consistent with the current officeholder.

I have also included a second image for consideration, of Zhu Li giving her acceptance speech. I included this since it depicts her as president(-elect) and thus ties better to the article itself. HAMMEROFTHØR (wall) • 11:59, April 26, 2019 (UTC)

I think when possible, we should use an image that is in color over a black and white photo— it helps to better represent the figure in question, which is the purpose of a profile image. The proposal is a professional shot without a distracting background like the current, but is also in color. Fire Pabu Sprite Ferret 04:58, November 25, 2018 (UTC)

That the current image is black and white is not an issue for me, and I don't think we should change it to a colour image just because it is B&W. I think the quality and look of the current image is much better compared to the proposal; in particular, I find the reflection in his glasses in the proposal very distracting. My vote is for the current image. HAMMEROFTHØR (wall) • 13:53, November 25, 2018 (UTC)
I have to agree with Thor on this one. I hadn't noticed it at first, but that reflection on his glasses threw me off to be honest. Also, the black and white isn't too bad. Tono555(VSTF) Korra-chao2 18:05, November 25, 2018 (UTC)

The current is tiny, has lighting that distorts the color of his face, and is overall low quality. The proposal fixes these issues. Fire Pabu Sprite Ferret 04:39, November 25, 2018 (UTC)

No argument from me, the proposal is significantly better than the current image. HAMMEROFTHØR (wall) • 13:53, November 25, 2018 (UTC)
Agreed. Tono555(VSTF) Korra-chao2 18:05, November 25, 2018 (UTC)

I'm not satisfied with the proposal and the current has the advantage of her head facing the camera, that being said the lighting is terrible and honestly is kind of... scary? I encourage anybody else to search for better images but this was the best I could find— it's high quality and has much nicer lighting than the current image. Fire Pabu Sprite Ferret 04:22, November 25, 2018 (UTC)

The proposal is not ideal, but I do think it is a better quality than the current image, particularly in terms of the lighting. HAMMEROFTHØR (wall) • 13:53, November 25, 2018 (UTC)
It's definitely a more professional shot. I do think it's a better option per FF. Tono555(VSTF) Korra-chao2 18:05, November 25, 2018 (UTC)

The arms to his head are quite distracting in the current shot, both proposal fix that issue. My preference goes to proposal #1 as it is the most neutral shot while still showing his anxious attitude. #2 places more emphasis on that anxiousness in case that was preferred. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 19:02, November 3, 2018 (UTC)

I would go with proposal 2. When I made the article what I had in mind was his anxious demeanor, so I'll go with the one that best depicts that. --Tono555(VSTF) Korra-chao2 17:02, November 4, 2018 (UTC)
I do have to say that his anxious demeanor isn't all there is to him, considering he's also the sceptical and annoyed refugee. As such, the more neutral expression seems more fitting. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 00:25, November 5, 2018 (UTC)
I think the more neutral look in proposal #1 is preferable to the surprised look in #2. The latter represents one aspect of his personality very well, but as that is only one aspect I think a more neutral look is better. HAMMEROFTHØR (wall) • 00:12, November 18, 2018 (UTC)
I don't really like the fact that it seems he's facing down. I'll stick with proposal #2. Tono555(VSTF) Korra-chao2 18:05, November 25, 2018 (UTC)
