This file ought to be obsolete now, but I'm starting a thread because I'm unsure. It was related to one of Wikia's enforced skin/layout changes (I think... can't find the discussion), where some users including Janizdreg were trying to revise site components to work around it.

- You are correct, but I vote Keep and wish to integrate into Doom Wiki:Departure from Wikia. Media is freely licensed, and the amount of benefit to the server from deleting files is minimal - the file will actually still be kept on the server in case of undeletion. Deleting things just for the sake of deleting them has very little benefit. Also, the wikia version of this image currently has very high SEO. We should bank on that. --Quasar 14:18, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
- If there is an intended use for the image (which I was not aware of until just now), and if that use is still relevant to the wiki (which it is), and if the file is freely licensed (which it is), then I normally lean toward keeping also. Your other points are far more general so I'll respond on your talk page. Ryan W 22:45, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
- I didn't think of a good use for it til it came up for a VfD, to be honest. But I think it does work well to illustrate one reason we left on that article :) This has been the case for the other image (the spectre one) as well, though, I had not seen that one before whereas this one I was previously aware of due to work on categorizing images and just left it be for the time being. I think a VfD that ends up with the resource finding use is as useful as one that gets rid of bothersome material, because both are productive ends. --Quasar 23:30, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
- Agree completely with the last sentence. Frankly, on this site, most discussions can be started only by forcing the issue, because people find it boring to consider hypotheticals or abstractions. (If only I knew how to start them more politely, I'd be a lot more productive here! :D Ryan W 00:22, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
- Removed deletion tag as has been re-employed on the aforementioned article. --Quasar 17:37, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
