If you haven't seen already, this article is up for deletion. At the moment, it seems like the consensus will end up being in favour of merging it, but I just want to alert editors here in case anyone wants to comment. By deleting this article, which is very developed as compared other recurring character lists I might add, what does it mean for other recurring character lists? Does this set a precedent to delete them all? If we merge List of recurring Neighbours characters into List of Neighbours characters, then that article will essentially just be overrun by a list of recurring characters. Isn't that article meant to be for currently appearing characters? I just wanted to point these out and alert editors, so all soap editors can understand the implications of deleting/merging this article. Thanks. - Therealscorp1an (talk) 22:10, 27 September 2023 (UTC)
Alright. Following this discussion, concurrent with this discussion, both regarding literally the exact same topic, I think it is about time we move this to the Project so it can be open for all editors.
There has been a disagreement regarding the recent changes to the photos featured in the infoboxes of many Neighbours characters' articles, such as David Tanaka, Aaron Brennan, Paul Robinson, Terese Willis and Melanie Pearson, made by User:Livelikemusic. Some of these changes have been reverted by editors like myself and User:Raintheone, but some have since been re-reverted by User:Livelikemusic.
User:Livelikemusic argues that these changes, and I quote directly from this edit, "The change was to provide a higher quality image, yet still meeting non-free content criteria requirements". However, some editors, including myself, disagree that the new photos serve any real constructive "high quality".
The arguments spurted include that these new photos are quite rectangular rather than the typical square shape meaning that they expose unnecessary neck and body that detract from the article, some of the positions captured appear to be "humorous", the new photos barely display better quality in comparison to the old photos, and the updates of some images do not represent the character over their entire tenure, such as Aaron, who has only recently appeared with a beard over the past two weeks, and whose photo now displays him with a beard rather than beardless which he has been over the past eight years. Another argument is that the new photos show no change in appearance, like for David, and therefore have no need to be updated.
I have xt'd the arguments so it is easier for editors to pinpoint them in that paragraph.
The point of Wikipedia is to edit collaboratively and I really dislike arguing because it's not constructive, so other editors, please tell us your opinions on the matter so it can be resolved.
