About the Latest Print Image rule, while most images are usually of higher quality or similar quality to the card image that was replaced, there has been exceptions where the image seems to get worse, for example:
On the contrary, there's also good scans that don't need changing, like:
I might be getting nit-picky here, but I'm pretty sure there's clean, clear images that have full card borders in the gallery as opposed to a blurry image (In the case of DT cards, that's usually unavoidable due to the way DT cards are made) that does not even have full borders. What I propose is that we shelve these bad images into the gallery and use clean images until the DT card scan is of good quality. Granted, most TCG DT cards don't have this problem since they're reprinted on HA, but cards I've brought up in this topic, like 7 Completed and Destruction Punch, might not be getting a regular reprint anytime soon.
- The images given are of the latest print. For example better images of 7 Completed probably say "Magic Card" instead of "Spell Card", or the better card images have longer card text. As for Punch, it's the newest Errata for it. In other words, the more recent the better, even if a card's quality is given up in exchange. But if we can get better image scans of the newest prints, than no issues? ---Dark Ace SP (Talk) 23:03, July 7, 2012 (UTC)
- As Dark Ace says, this rule is in place to ensure we always show an image of the latest errata version of cards. It isn't a completely fast rule, though; if the only image we have of the latest print of a card is absolutely abysmal in quality (really low res, blurry, watermarked to hell, poorly cropped, etc.), there's a definite argument to be made for an exception. But in general, we do want a lower-quality image of the latest print over a higher-quality image of an earlier print. 「ディノ奴千？！」? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 03:30, July 11, 2012 (UTC)
