This is a page of featured pictures that have been skipped and are unlikely to appear as picture of the day for various reasons.

Image Article Reason
Michele Merkin Michele Merkin Too cheesecake-y for the Main Page. Will call into question Wikipedians' character ("She only got picked because she's hot" etc). A POTD blurb for glamour photography could potentially be written as well, but it would preferable to not have a topless woman for that case. The decision not to feature this image on the main page was affirmed through a two-week discussion in May 2014.
Dead Japanese soldiers Death and culture Too graphic.
Defecating seagull Guano Although shows how guano is ejected from the bird, will invite too many juvenile comments from the peanut gallery.
Woman urinating Public indecency Like the seagull photo, will be the catalyst of much hand-wringing and/or vandalism.
Someone being lynched Lynching Too graphic
