[edit] Main image change

Seeing how in the current image, which is pretty crowded as it is, Uldor isn't even the main focus of it, I vote to change it to one of Helena Stepanova's. IvarTheBoneless 09:19, 24 June 2021 (UTC)

I agree and it is not like there are no other good options, I would recommend changing it to this one. I do not think it is a big enough issue to ask for permission! --JR Snow 11:16, 24 June 2021 (UTC)
I agree with the change, although I prefer the colored one. It shouldn't be a necessary in cases like these, but given that some users give too much importance to changing the main images, I think it is good that they ask for permission. --LorenzoCB 12:20, 24 June 2021 (UTC)
I also think that the current image should be changed. I am in favor of Helena Stepanova's colored image of Uldor. I also agree that one should ask for permission to change an image in order to avoid frequent changes of images purely based on personal preferences of the user who wants to change the image. --Akhorahil 16:37, 24 June 2021 (UTC)
I was not aware that people do such things; changing images on the basis of preference alone. I’ve only ever seen them changed when there is a just reason for it (such as here), I withdraw my earlier comment. —JR Snow 21:27, 24 June 2021 (UTC)
Should it be the colored one or the black and white then? IvarTheBoneless 21:09, 1 July 2021 (UTC)
Votes are quite balanced, so it depends of your choice. --LorenzoCB 07:59, 2 July 2021 (UTC)
It seems that LorenzoCB and I am in favor of the colored one and that JR Snow is in favor of the black and white one. Do you have any preference? If you are in favor of the black and white one, then it is a tie and you can wait for more votes or flip a coin :-) --Akhorahil 11:33, 2 July 2021 (UTC)
I've no preference, honestly. IvarTheBoneless 12:06, 2 July 2021 (UTC)
I'm in favor of Stepanova's colored Uldor image. I think it looks more obviously like an Easterling/Eastron (to me it's similar to a Persian). The black and white one looks more like a noble prince (even though it shows eastern influences in clothing) rather than a son of an Easterling chief that is Ulfang.--LordoftheEarth 13:34, 2 July 2021 (UTC)
Eh, I'll wait a while - if within a week there's no one else chiming in, I'm going with the colored one, which seems to lead the pack currently. IvarTheBoneless 07:57, 5 July 2021 (UTC)
