Suggestions

Is there a high quality EU-related picture this portal can't live without? Please post your suggestions below to let your voice be heard.

Procedure

The nomination process here is relaxed, but articles that meet the featured picture requirements are more likely to gain support.

Nominating articles

  1. Find a picture or animation related to the European Union that you think is very good. It need not be a current Featured picture, but if it is, it could only help the nomination.
    • If the image was previously nominated for featured status, or if it has been on peer review, try to resolve as many of the remaining objections as possible.
  2. In the nominations section below, add a third level section header with the linked page title as the section name (===[[Page title]]===). Below this new header, add your reasons for nomination and sign your nomination with ~~~~.

Supporting and objecting

  • If you approve of a nomination, write "Support" followed by your reasons.
    • A nomination is considered a vote in support, so nominators don't need to add another vote to their nominations.
  • If you oppose a nomination, write "Oppose" followed by the reasons for your objection. Where possible, objections should provide a specific rationale that can be addressed.
    • To withdraw an objection, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.
