Changing the profile image (the image in the article's infobox, or the top image to the right of the introduction to 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. An administrator will announce the proposal on the community corner (this can be found below Hot Spots on Special:WikiActivity) if it is believed a grounded reason to initiate the image change process has been given in the original proposal.
  3. Discussion about the proposal can begin. If a discussion ensues and:
    1. no general consensus appears to develop between involved users, then a ballot will be placed forward;
    2. the people involved are all in agreement and after five days no one else voice 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 day the administrator approved the discussion.
    1. In case of proposals that regard the image of a newly created page, 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.

The current image is god awful. I don't have much of a preference between the two proposals but I'll take anything above the current, I think the reasons why its undesirable are clearly apparent. Fire Pabu Sprite Ferret 03:55, October 12, 2018 (UTC)

I definitely prefer proposal #1. Her face looks a little less clean on the second one, and the first one is a more professional shot. --Tono555 Korra-chao2 04:02, October 12, 2018 (UTC)
Proposal #1 does look more professional, though I am little concerned about it looking slightly grainy in the infobox. That said, it is the best of three so has my vote. HAMMEROFTHOR 15:02, October 12, 2018 (UTC)
Agree with Tono and HoT, proposal 1 is the best one here. Perhaps it could be cropped to be a bit more square, but that's a detail. Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon) 15:30, October 12, 2018 (UTC)

Proposal 6 will be the new infobox image.
Please do not edit this discussion.

Frankly, any image is better than the current. Currently, the image is a hot pixelated mess. While the proposals are slightly darker than the current, I believe Aang's features are much more prominent in proposal 2. Additionally, the slight smile is more indicative of his nature. Proposal 2 or 4 are better suited to be his image, imo, though I added the other two as extra options. Frui (🌹 β€’ 🐝 β€’ 🐝🐝) 20:00, September 8, 2018 (UTC)

I like 4. We don't have to really worry about Aang reflecting his movie personality since he doesn't have much of one and he's looking straight on at the camera. Fire Pabu Sprite Ferret 22:00, September 8, 2018 (UTC)

Ok, so the darkness in Proposal 2 and Proposal 4 (which I saw as the clear winners) was irritating me so I just tweaked the exposure, contrast, highlights, and shadows in the photo for some basic color grading. Nothing fancy at all, but they are much better to look at now. I vote 5 (really 2 graded), because Shyamalan at least intended on depicting him as happy and consequently, 5 serves as a better infobox image. – Srijay K β€’ TechFilmer 03:40, September 11, 2018 (UTC)

With the updated lighting I like #6. Fire Pabu Sprite Ferret 19:23, September 18, 2018 (UTC)
I like proposal 6 as well. Tono555 Korra-chao2 01:37, September 19, 2018 (UTC)

The current image of Iroh makes it difficult to make out some of his features due to the lighting. It is easier to see him in the proposed, though I don't think either of them are perfect. Frui (🌹 β€’ 🐝 β€’ 🐝🐝) 20:00, September 8, 2018 (UTC)

Zuko

It is almost impossible to discern Zuko's features in the current image. The first proposal is better, though unfortunately his mouth is ajar. The second one is also not perfect, but given that his features make him easier to see, it is still more appropriate than the current image. Frui (🌹 β€’ 🐝 β€’ 🐝🐝) 20:00, September 8, 2018 (UTC)

I think #1 is better, even if his mouth is open, at least he seems angsty in it and he's the focus of the shot. Fire Pabu Sprite Ferret 22:00, September 8, 2018 (UTC)

Reopening because uh... i put the wrong pic as the current image. whoops. i now don't know. im still partial to replacement 1 but that's because im not a fan of the stark blue background. that being said, his scar is nice and visible in the current. Frui (🌹 β€’ 🐝 β€’ 🐝🐝) 19:39, September 18, 2018 (UTC)

Lol no problem, I actually prefer the current because I think the lighting is better and gives us a greater view of his face. Fire Pabu Sprite Ferret 19:42, September 18, 2018 (UTC)
I think my biggest issue is that the current images are so horribly "color-corrected". Proposal 3 is the same image but taken as a direct screenshot, and it makes a huge difference. Given that we have a 'don't edit images' policy on the wiki, I think that it should be a comparison between changing the current one to either a different image, or changing it to how it actually looks in the film. If that makes sense... Of course, it can be brightened a little, and I may do that so we can actually see his features... but at the moment, the current image is not representative of Zuko in the film. Frui (🌹 β€’ 🐝 β€’ 🐝🐝) 19:57, September 18, 2018 (UTC)
You're right, I'll go with four then. Too bad the movie is horribly dark for quite frankly no reason. Fire Pabu Sprite Ferret 23:11, September 18, 2018 (UTC)
There are many reasons why the movie sucks and that is one of them. I like proposal four as wel, though. Tono555 Korra-chao2 01:38, September 19, 2018 (UTC)

Reopening this with option #5. I admit that the slanted angle isn't ideal, but the lighting, coloring, and overall visualisation of Zuko is better than in the other options, which I find to outweigh the downside of the side angle. Lady Lostris vstf (talk β€’ HotN) 22:12, October 6, 2018 (UTC)

I can support #5 per the reasons given. Fire Pabu Sprite Ferret 04:28, October 7, 2018 (UTC)
There are issues will all the proposals but I agree that #5 is the best. HAMMEROFTHOR 15:40, October 7, 2018 (UTC)
I agree with Thor. Proposal 5 is probably the best way to go. Tono555 Korra-chao2 16:13, October 7, 2018 (UTC)

Proposal 1 will be the new infobox image.
Please do not edit this discussion.

The current image is quite long and has Koh winking and wearing costume ears. I feel like a more serious image is probably better suited for her article, as I couldn't find promotional headshots when I grabbed the original image so I settled for a twitter selfie, but now more professional images are available I think we should use those instead. Koh typically uses #1 as her official photo at current events like FlameCon and Korra showings, but she has used #2 as well and I feel like it's better suited as an infobox since her head is facing straightforward and I think she has a more neutral expression, and in addition I think the image quality is slightly better. Regardless I kept both so there would be options in case other people preferred one over the other. Fire Pabu Sprite Ferret 01:34, September 2, 2018 (UTC)

Approved for discussion.
I have a preference for #1 as #2 feels a bit mugshot-like to me. Though either proposals are better than the current. Lady Lostris vstf (talk β€’ HotN) 11:25, September 3, 2018 (UTC)
Leaning towards the second one as it seems more infoboxy. Still, remarkedly better than the original. – Srijay K β€’ TechFilmer 17:42, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
I support the first proposal. The second one is too weird looking for me. Like a passport photo or something of the sort which is a bit awkward. Tono555 Korra-chao2 01:53, September 7, 2018 (UTC)
I'm for the first proposal, since I agree with the passport/mugshot criticism. Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon) 07:11, September 8, 2018 (UTC)

The current image has a cluttered background, and to me the lightning is too dark and contrasted. -- Minnichiγ€ŒBSST β€’ Fanon」Smiling Dai Li Sprite 19:24, June 24, 2018 (UTC)

I agree. Contrast is better in the proposed picture. Dcasawang1 β€’ wall 00:12, June 25, 2018 (UTC)
Support, per proposal. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:17, June 25, 2018 (UTC)
I have to disagree here. Yes, the lighting is more even in the proposal, but I feel like that makes him look weirdly flat and featureless. I also don't like that his hair is a little longer in the proposal, covering even more of his face than it already is in the current, which isn't helped by the fact that it's just a little bit further away, making it even more difficult to discern details. And I might even argue that the shadows of the current do something to accentuate Zuko's dual nature, which is the most important part of his character. Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon) 16:51, June 25, 2018 (UTC)

I oppose as well. He looks a little awkward to me, with the shot not being as centered as the current profile image. His hair, per AA7 is a little too long and he does appear to look a bit expressionless. Tono555 Korra-chao2 16:03, June 26, 2018 (UTC)

After thinking it over, I oppose for the same reasons as AA7. The lighting contrast and basic expression of the current image represent Zuko's character pretty well. --AvatarRokus Ghost (Message me β€’ Read my fanon) Aang Cosmic Toph-DoBS-2 20:40, June 26, 2018 (UTC)

Azula

My proposed image doesn't have other people in the background and displays more of Azula's dark, cunning personality if you ask me. Her entire head is visible, too. -- Minnichiγ€ŒBSST β€’ Fanon」Smiling Dai Li Sprite 19:41, June 24, 2018 (UTC)

Approved for discussion. I'll have to oppose, however. While it is true that the proposed image shows more of Azula's likeness, her sideways glare and lopsided smirk makes for an odd profile angle and gives her a sort of cartoonish look. In other words: she looks weird. ― Thailog 23:30, June 24, 2018 (UTC)
I don't think she looks weird. I like the fact that she is alone and there is fire behind her. Dcasawang1 β€’ wall 00:12, June 25, 2018 (UTC)
Against it, per Thailog. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:17, June 25, 2018 (UTC)
I agree with Thailog as well, the very slight smirk of the current shows her personality off better than the more cartoony look of the proposal. Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon) 16:44, June 25, 2018 (UTC)
I don't think she looks cartoonish. Her smirk is better, but the positioning does look a bit off and I'd rather have her looking forward. Tono555 Korra-chao2 16:05, June 26, 2018 (UTC)

I'll support this one per Minn's proposal. --AvatarRokus Ghost (Message me β€’ Read my fanon) Aang Cosmic Toph-DoBS-2 20:42, June 26, 2018 (UTC)

The current focuses on Ursa pouring the poison in a vile, while the proposed focuses on the actual creation process, which I think is more suitable. Lady Lostris vstf (talk β€’ HotN) 16:30, March 25, 2018 (UTC)

The current picture is just a plain black-and-white picture, so not really colorful. I think the proposal would fit in better with the wiki's overall bright colored themes and this picture also happens to be more recent. Korra2000 (wall β€’ contribs)

Jargala Omo

Proposal #3 will be the new infobox image.
Please do not edit this discussion.

I think that the change of the image is obvious, as the currently doesn't give us a clear image of Jargala. I have chosen this one because, by reading the comic, I thought one of these are perfect suitable for the character (I don't have any preference between 1 or 2, I'm neutral). {{subst:Usuario:Kyawaterbender/autosig}} 19:17, February 8, 2018 (UTC)

Approved for discussion.
A change is definitely needed due to obvious reasons, but I am wondering (I haven't read the comic myself yet) if there are other images of her available as well. I find the angle in both images to be lacking. They're both still better than the current, however, so if there are no other suitable images available, then I vote for #1 since at least that one's a semi-frontal complete head shot. Lady Lostris vstf (talk β€’ HotN) 19:02, February 13, 2018 (UTC)
Since you asked, I went through her two scenes again, and I found the third proposal, which I took the liberty of adding here. This is the most frontal shot of her that is not from so far that you can't make out any detail, but I will say that proposal 1 is better when it comes to detail than this. I'm not 100% sure which should count for more, but I do think #3 is the best one so far. Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon)​​ 14:58, February 15, 2018 (UTC)
I'd say #1 and #3 are the best options, tending more towards #3. #1 is good but feels a little too close, whereas #3 seems at a better distance and looks a lot cleaner. HAMMEROFTHOR 19:47, February 20, 2018 (UTC)
Having take a look to the three photos, I will say that I'm between my proposal #1 and #3. Maybe #3 is more suitable in terms of distance and position.--{{subst:Usuario:Kyawaterbender/autosig}} 11:26, February 21, 2018 (UTC)
Proposal #3 is the best by far. Tono555 Korra-chao2 17:17, February 21, 2018 (UTC)

I'm proposing this largely because she looks to be about nine in her current picture, and seeing how she just turned 18, I think it's only fair to update her picture to the one from her Wikipedia page. Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon)​ 17:10, November 11, 2017 (UTC)

Approved for discussion.
I'm rather neutral on this.
I can see the reasoning for the change, but I don't see the need for the change; considering she voiced the series three years ago when she was still a child, it sort of makes sense to also show her as one. Lady Lostris vstf (talk β€’ HotN) 18:25, November 19, 2017 (UTC)
Okay, in that case, I feel like I should point out that according to Wikipedia, the proposal was taken in 2014. And even if, the current isn't bad or anything, it's just more that I feel like it should be updated to a more current picture.Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon)​ 20:44, November 19, 2017 (UTC)
I'm gonna say that we don't update the photo, if anything just because it sets the precedent that every actor should have an up to date picture. People like Zach Tyler Eisen don't have an up to date photo and I really really don't want to set that precedent. – Srijay K β€’ TechFilmer 21:28, November 19, 2017 (UTC)
