TeeKay fursuit[edit]

  • Support. Uploaded by subject, just needs a license to be added. --EarthFurst (talk) 02:28, 19 July 2015 (EDT)
    I'll email uploader to ask them who took it and whether it's licensed. --GreenReaper(talk) 06:17, 14 September 2018 (EDT)
    So, progress: I found and uploaded a slightly-higher resolution and contacted the photographer; however he was only able/willing to release it under CC-BY-NC-SA (if the subject agrees) because the meet in question forbade commercial use of photography. So the question becomes "is it OK to feature this given that limitation?" It's not quite the same being uncertain about a random CC-BY-NC-SA image, since both subject and copyright-holder have approved this specific use. --GreenReaper(talk) 19:34, 18 September 2018 (EDT)
    I think CC-by-nc-sa sounds fine. It seems close to other licenses of featured pictures. Licenses of latest five featured fursuit photos are:
Rainrat's photo of Sairys, license is Photo3D.
File:Abrahm AC09 Dragonscales DSC9502.jpg is Cc-by-3.0
File:Edmund Skunk at MFF 2008.jpg is Cc-by-sa-3.0-and-GFDL
File:Fursuit Markus crouch.JPG is also Photo3D (is displaying image as featured image an example of fair use??)
File:GR MFF2006 Unika and Kayto.jpg is Cc-by-sa-3.0-and-GFDL. --EarthFurst (talk) 23:25, 18 September 2018 (EDT)
So RE "if the subject agrees". Has TeeKay agreed to a CC-BY-NC-SA license? --EarthFurst (talk) 00:33, 2 October 2018 (EDT)
Yeah, they were OK with that. --GreenReaper(talk) 10:40, 8 October 2018 (EDT)

AE 2009 Sairys.JPG

Sairys at Anime Evolution 2009 [edit]

  • Photographed, nominate and support. --Rat 22:23, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Apollo
  • Support Wolferajd
  • Neutral. I'd Support it if it wasn't for the 'tilt' of the picture. If there's some artistic or compositional merit to the tilt, I'm just not seeing it. --mwalimu 23:01, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Neutral and for the same reason as Mwalimu. That said, I'm tempted to see if there's enough 'around' to the image that it could be rotated. --GingerM (Leave me a message) 04:29, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
Edit 1 - Rat's picture de-tilted and cropped of whitespace from rotation
I had a go at de-tilting; does it help?
laughing You realize we both were independently working on this at exactly the same time? :) --CodyDenton 04:57, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
  • giggles* Literally within minutes of each other, going by the time stamps. Well, I'm sure that indicates interest in seeing this pic up. --GingerM (Leave me a message) 05:13, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
Sairys at Anime Evolution 2009 edit 1.jpg

Sairys at Anime Evolution 2009 edit 1[edit]

  • Edited and resubmitted with support. Rotated 5 degrees and recropped to eliminate tilt as per above discussion. --CodyDenton 04:56, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
    • Is there a license issue here? Rat released the image to us, but it's not a clear license because of the 3D stipulation. Not that I think anyone would object, but one of the requirements for featured image status is a clear free license. --CodyDenton 08:36, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
      • On further consideration, we've featured plenty of fursuit pics. Scrutinizing the photo, I can't really see anything that makes this one stand out as being different from a copyright perspective. Seems that Rat's release to us is sufficient.--CodyDenton 08:20, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Supported - with the straightening it makes a much better image! And I think CodyDenton did a better job than I did of it, so if there's sufficient support, use his. Unless Rat has an uncropped original with more room around the suit? --GingerM (Leave me a message) 05:16, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
    • Actually the version by GingerM is better IMO. Somehow I grabbed the reduced version instead of the full-res version for my fix. (Fail!) GingerM's version uses the full-res file. So I think we should use hers. --CodyDenton 08:20, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I don't know the person or the suit, but I would think there are better candidates for "Be WikiFur's best work" than a fursuiter humping a pole. It does not have a free license template attached. My personal belief is the action of the subject matter makes it a bit controversial for the front page, which may be stumbled on by someone outside the Fandom. I do think GingerM's version is the best thus far proposed. Anyway, my 2 cents. :3 BlueOtter 04:28, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Supported - Because I've supported the version above, I also support this version too --Wolferajd 12:44, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Promoted. --CodyDenton 03:27, 2 June 2011 (EDT)

Aron Brenwater by Dylan Rinald[edit]

  • Nominate and support. Nice use of texture, light and shadow, and intricate detail. --CodyDenton 09:47, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support, and for the same reasons. --GingerM (Leave me a message) 01:04, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Promoted. --GreenReaper(talk) 01:19, 25 April 2011 (EDT)

Abrahm AC09 Dragonscales DSC9502.jpg

Abraham at Anthrocon 2009[edit]

  • Nominate and support. --GreenReaper(talk) 05:11, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Neutral It's technically excellent, but it just seems uninteresting. --Rat 05:52, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Weak Support After seeing this fursuit up close at MFF. I am vouching for support. No Blur in this at all, only a few hot pixels that are not noticeable at low resolutions. The only thing keeping me from full supporting it is that it is just another fursuit photo per Rat, The flag does make it a little more interesting as AC had the flags in the parade this year and I heard so much about it. Sawblade5 10:20, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Clean and uncluttered, drawing the eye right to the subject. The flag highlights the international appeal of Furry, a community larger than any one country or geographic boundary. --CodyDenton 04:06, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Mild Support My problem is that because the fursuit and background are from pretty much the same palette, the flag tends to dominate visually. However as noted, it is a lovely clear photo and well-framed. --GingerM (Leave me a message) 04:27, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Promoted.Well, Kemonomimi has been up on the main page since Week 35, 2010. The support for this pic isn't super strong, but it's four in favor to one neutral and it's been well more than seven days. (Going on seven months soon actually.) I decided to be bold and feature it. Looks like historically, GreenReaper usually does this so he can smack my paw if I shouldn't have.  ;-) --CodyDenton 07:48, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Kemonomimi by spazzykoneko.jpg


  • Great art, free license, illustrates the article nicely, why have we not featured this? --Kakurady 04:08, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Promoted. --GreenReaper(talk) 03:47, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Furstock 2007.jpg

Furstock 2007 attendees[edit]

  • Nominate and support (best of the Furstock set, see also 2008 and 2006) --GreenReaper(talk) 05:32, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Weak support It's a bit on the low side for resolution, especially for a wide-angle photo. --Rat 05:52, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Support, not on the basis of image quality, but on content. It would make a nice change in the sea of (somewhat stereotypical) fursuits and art we always feature ;) -- Grey (talk, contribs) 10:45, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Weak Support It's a great subject and you can tell this is a Furry Group based on the photo. The only 1 problem was Someone was not looking at the camera outside fursuits and this small of a group, that shouldn't be a problem, otherwise It would have my Full Support.

Markus the Red Fox[edit]

Freely-licensed and really cute. Plenty of detail. --GreenReaper(talk) 00:10, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

  • Support of course :) --Rat 21:43, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
    • I've uploaded another version because I was wondering if I perhaps cropped the image too tightly around Markus. So if you vote support, give your opinion on which you like better --Rat 21:23, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

Promoted. I chose the tighter crop, because I felt it avoided items of distraction such as the sofa leg. --GreenReaper(talk) 23:49, 7 October 2007 (UTC)
