  • Support as nominator --Pine 20:09, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose: Although it illustrates tree branches nicely, I don't see anything particularly special about it. Pirated windows 7 install disc (talk) 17:55, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Support has good EV showing the structure of branches on a tree. Calhoun talk 18:13, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment. As with a couple of noms last week, description page needs to be in English for enwiki as per Criterion 7 (is it that much to ask that nominators please take to checking this before nominating). --jjron (talk) 02:56, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Criteria 7 says nothing about requiring the description page to be in English. Also, the description page is on Commons, not English Wikipedia. --Pine 20:22, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
  • For crying out loud the criterion is "Has a descriptive, informative and complete file description". That can hardly apply if an English speaking person can't read it! This is not Commons, it is the English Wikipedia. While non-English speaking people are welcome to use it, it is not a multilingual Encyclopaedia, there are other versions if you want to use one in a language other than English and I'm quite happy for you to nominate this at without an English description. What do you think would happen to an article that was nominated at Featured Articles that was written in say French? Well funnily enough Wikipedia:Featured article criteria also doesn't specify it has to be written in English, so why don't you go ahead and nominate something there written in a foreign language and see what happens? Let's have a bit of commonsense please! --jjron (talk) 03:01, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
  • I am nominating the image for its value on English Wikipedia, not Commons, but the description page is on Commons. I am wary of one Wiki such as English telling another Wiki such as Commons what to do with its pages such as the image's info page, I'm used to working in multilingual enviroments so changing from one language to another doesn't bother me, and I'm reluctant to enforce rules that are not in writing, but I see your point that readers on English who click on the image would benefit from a caption in English, so I'll edit the description on Commons. I'm also going to start a discussion on the talk page proposing that Criteria 7 include a requirement that the description must be in English. --Pine 17:58, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Fails Criterion 7. --jjron (talk) 03:01, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Withdraw after taking another look at the image, the quality is not good enough when viewed full size, and after looking more at Criteron 7 I think this file could use a fuller description. --Pine 18:11, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
