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. The proposer must then apply the {{PIC}} template to the top of the article for which a change is being proposed.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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'm back again for a profile image change. But this time, I think this proposal won't be accepted this easily. This time, I present to you the proposal for the main character Aang's profile image. Now, I know this is unexpected since the current has a beautiful sunset shown, coupled by Aang smiling after a huge victory. But, the reason why I have put forth the proposal is because of his outfit in the current - this robe was worn just once in the final episode Sozin's Comet, Part 4: Avatar Aang. In Book Three: Fire, Aang's major outfit consisted of simple orange and yellow clothes worn around his body (I am not interested in fashion terms, so I don't know what is used to call these clothes, so forgive me). In fact, in promotional materials, he has been depicted wearing these. The robe which he wore in the end never appeared after that final episode. His TLOK robe resembled the robe he wore in Book One: Water of ATLA but having the same orange and red combo, from Book Three. So, considering that, I tried to find a picture of Aang wearing the clothes from Book Three, with a smile on his face. It was really hard to find since he had worn the Fire Nation outfit, after his awakening, before switching to the final and main one. However, the proposal may look shadowed and, apparently, looks kind of bad considering the quality as compared to that of the current. I, actually, have no qualms with the current. I thought since he had worn this robe just once, it was kind of strange, so I set up the proposal. Even if the proposal fails, I will have no problem with the current.

While I agree with your reasons to change, I do not agree that this image is better, quality-wise. So for that reason, I vote to keep it the same. Zacatero • (Wall) • 15  15 18:54, 31 October 2021 (UTC)
The proposed image is too much of a close-up, and does not look good in the infobox. Support for current. HAMMEROFTHØR (wall) • 19:33, 31 October 2021 (UTC)
The current also captures a more final Aang, at the end of the television series, as opposed to one from the middle. Vote for the current. Tibhod (wallcontribs) 11:38, 6 November 2021 (UTC)

Rangi

Proposal #1 will be the new profile image.

Please do not edit this discussion.


The current image for Rangi shows her in action and in an awkward position, as her left side is partially cut off due to Kyoshi standing there. Furthermore, despite her fierce side, Rangi is often the voice of reason and strategy in Kyoshi's circle, something not well reflected by her emotional face in the current image. The proposed replacement comes from the newly published Avatar calendar and shows Rangi centrally as well as calmly in a fighting pose yet with a confident smile, a much more typical view of her.

Support. The proposal has a much better angle and is generally a better reflection of her character. HAMMEROFTHØR (wall) • 11:39, 2 October 2021 (UTC)
Support. The proposal is better in terms of a character's depiction. Yohan Mavely talkAppa Face (Signature Use).png 18:50, 2 October 2021 (UTC)

Energybending

The current image, while very iconic, has something that isn't that good for an infobox image, the depiction it makes of the subject is very non-standard. The last time an image for energybending was proposed (archive 14), after Book One: Air had aired, the argument made was that the LoK image proposals lacked details, and the one of Aang energybending Ozai also showed the energy. The most consistently depicted aspect of energybending is the use to give/take another's bending. Since Book One: Air, we've seen more instances of this application, and most of them, even in the more stylised Beginnings episodes, show that the extra glow when the lion turtle energybent Aang, and Aang energybent Ozai are no longer the standard, more common look of that action. Aang energybending Yakone didn't look like that, Korra energybending Lin didn't look that, Aang energybending Korra didn't look like that. The two proposals I put forward have no non-standard elements in them. It's just the bender, the energy, and the bent. They lack the outlier glow from AtLA, there's no flashback filter from Aang bending Yakone, they don't have the different animation style from the Beginnings episodes, they don't have the different look from when Aang did as a spirit. I'm more partial to proposal 1, since that better depicts Korra as the bender, and while Lin is seen from the back, it's clear she the one being energybent, and she is recognizable enough even from behind.

I really like both Proposal #1 and #2. But if I have to pick one, I agree that #1 is better because it shows Korra as the energybender. Zacatero • (Wall) • 15  15 00:54, 13 September 2021 (UTC)
I don't like any of the proposals. The reason is obvious, the current is iconic as it was a 'battle between two energies', the last resort to end Ozai's reign without killing him. But, as said by Omnibender, this technique has evolved, in terms of appearance, as seen in TLOK. So, a new profile image is needed. Hence, an image showing either taking away bending or restoring bending. In TLOK, restoring bending was the most prominent. The two proposals are just so different from the current, I don't like #2, since it doesn't show the one bending energy, i.e. Korra. Still, #1 is just shown, to me, from a different angle. Frankly speaking, both proposals just show the face of either the energybender or the one whose energy is being bent. Actually, for energybending, an image is needed showing both faces. So, I think the proposal I have added fits the bill. This one shows both Korra's and Aang's faces, though one-sided. Additionally, the glowing energy is seen, reprising the one shown in the current. Yohan Mavely talkAppa Face (Signature Use).png 11:05, 16 September 2021 (UTC)
Showing both faces isn't strictly necessary, proposal one depicts the two points one touches when energybending just fine. And as I mentioned, the glowing energy in Aang energybending Korra is a non-standard depiction, the main point why I'm suggestion a new one, not to mention a non-standard use since it's being used by a spirit. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 15:56, 16 September 2021 (UTC)
Oh, I had forgotten that Aang wasn't energybending Korra physically, but as a spirit. Yes, it's true that you can't show an image showing a spirit utilising the technique. So, I'm dropping my idea. But still, I can't understand why I still feel that the two proposals you made aren't convincing to me.Yohan Mavely talkAppa Face (Signature Use).png 17:21, 16 September 2021 (UTC)

Yes, the Aang vs Ozai was the FIRST time it happened, but that visual of energybending is rather outdated, considering in Korra they simply just go into the Avatar state to energybend, in all cases (Aang to Korra, Korra to Lin, Aang to Yakone). I still cast my vote to Proposal #1. Zacatero • (Wall) • 15  15 17:22, 16 September 2021 (UTC)
