[edit] Category for people looking to add images?

should this add a category to the pages it's used on similar to the way stub works? I think it would be useful for people who want to find appropriate images to be able to see a list of pages which don't have them yet. — Defender1031*Talk 01:42, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

I think such a category would be more useful than the template, actually. It makes articles look quite ugly. Loafing 21:21, 1 January 2008 (UTC)
After seeing it in use, I agree wholeheartedly. I've removed the visible portion of the template (although I did think it was clever) and just left the category. — It's dot com 23:28, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
Why don't we just do this? [[Image:Nophoto.PNG|thumb|100px|This article needs an image to summarize its content.]] -- 23:36, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
That's not much help for a rarely-read article. Putting it in a category at least gives people some place to look for it. BBG 00:33, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
In addition, that line with Nophoto.PNG is exactly what I just removed from the template. — It's dot com 17:52, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
I think we need something that stands out more for users than just adding it to be apart of the "Articles Needing Images" category. Sure, Just going to Category:Articles Needing Images is a good idea, but to have someone to come across an article that doesn't regularly visit that category's page (or any for that matter), and notice that it needs another image, could be a better reminder. Something like a {{tobediscussed}} template at the top of the page. -- 22:11, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
I'm sure most of the editors can figure out for themselves if an article needs an image. BBG 22:18, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
Yes, but in some cases like the Ruby Powered Rocket they need an additional image. -- 22:23, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
Does that even fit the scope of the category? I don't even think the post you replied to there was true. BBG 22:34, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
If you really think that picture's necessary, you can do this: [[Image:NoPhoto.PNG|thumb|Inside the rocket]] BBG 01:38, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
I guess I'll do that, then. -- 01:52, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
