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.


  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.

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. HAMMEROFTHOR 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.

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. HAMMEROFTHOR 13:53, 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. HAMMEROFTHOR 13:53, November 25, 2018 (UTC)
It's definitely a more professional shot. I do think it's a better option per FF.

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.

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. --

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. HAMMEROFTHOR 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.
