Featured images follow the same nomination process as for Featured Articles, but as they appear in a different section of the main page, a separate series of votes is held to decide which images meet the required standard.

For an image to be eligible for Featured status, it must be used in a UESP article. This is to prevent specially-taken beauty shots from stealing the limelight.

A gallery of older Featured Images can be found here. Similarly, the archives of previous nominations can be found here. Note that not all failed nominations are included.


[edit] Featured Image Process

[edit] Nomination

Any registered member can nominate any image at any time. Nominated images should be of high quality and meet the site's image standards.

To nominate an image, list it on the bottom of this page with a three-tier heading, (===Example===), and briefly explain why you think the image should be given featured status.

This is another great image. It appears cinematic, which is rare for the TES series.

[edit] Voting

After an image has been nominated, any registered member can vote to support or oppose each nomination. Each member can only vote once for a given image, but a member may change his/her vote by striking out the original vote and replacing it with the revised vote.

To vote on an image, state whether you support or oppose the image for featured image status. A vote should be in bold, and all votes must be signed. For example:
* '''Support''': <Comment> --~~~~ or
* '''Oppose''': <Comment> --~~~~

Commenting with your vote is optional, but if you oppose a nomination, please state how the image must be improved to get your support for featured status.

If you are not yet ready to vote but would still like to add your thoughts, you may use:

* '''Comment''': <Comment> --~~~~ or
* '''Question''': <Question> --~~~~

And fill in your concerns or questions.

[edit] Decisions

UESP Administrators will periodically make decisions on image nominations. Decisions will only be made if:

  • The image has been nominated for more than seven days.
  • Five or more votes have been placed.

Nominations not meeting these criteria will be left open until a decision can be reached.

Images whose nominations pass will receive featured image status on the front page for two weeks (which may be extended up to one month if there is a shortage of images), and receive a small bronze star (Featured star.png) on the top right corner. If an image achieves featured status before the present featured image's time expires, it must wait its turn.

ON-quest-Carzog's Demise (quest) 02.jpg

I think that we really need to get some online images (or articles for that matter) on the front page. So I'm nomating a few I think look good, even though I know nothing about the game itself. This one in particular has good contrast with all kind of sources of light over the whole image. It seems well centered on the objects of interest. Yes you can tell I don't know what is going on, nevertheless, I like it.

  • Support: As nominator ~ Dwarfmp (talk) 20:26, 20 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Neutral: Meh. The background is beautiful, but the people in the foreground clutter it up. I'm not going to downvote it because the rest of it does look good and I would assume there's no way to take it without the people, but it isn't good enough for an FI. --AN|L (talk) 00:32, 21 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Support: This is a great picture from the quest in terms of colour and contrast, and brings together the essence of the plot. For context, the people on the left are arguing with the people on the right over what to do with the glowing whatsit in the middle. --Enodoc (talk) 11:35, 21 September 2014 (GMT)

This one has a great view of the city in the distance. I don't think I need to say more than that.

  • Support: As nominator ~ Dwarfmp (talk) 20:26, 20 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Support: Beautiful. Like Dwarfmp, I know practically nothing of ESO, but this shot is stunning. I'd love to see it on the front page. — ABCface 20:34, 20 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Support: An excellent view of the city. Having the character in the corner is another really nice touch. This'll look great on the front page for sure. Forfeit (talk) 22:12, 20 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Support:Excellent, cinematic, shot. It tells a story. --AN|L (talk) 00:32, 21 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Support: This is indeed a very beautiful view of Daggerfall. The colors and contrast are very nice and I also like having Lokra looking on. -Vordur Steel-Hammer2 (talk) 00:41, 21 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Support: Brilliant picture which brings together the essence of the quest's story with a vibrant picture of the destination. --Enodoc (talk) 11:35, 21 September 2014 (GMT)

Maybe it's my passion for Oblivion speaking, but I think this gate looks great. A familiar sight in a different form.

  • Support: As nominator ~ Dwarfmp (talk) 20:26, 20 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Oppose: I like that it's an image of an Oblivion Gate, but the background of the image really doesn't add anything to it. If an image of an Oblivion Gate is going to be featured, I think that the scenery around it should look more like the Planes of Oblivion (or that the image could even be in Oblivion). Having not played ESO, I don't know if this is possible, but as it is I don't think this image is worth featuring since the only interesting feature is the Oblivion Gate with an otherwise unremarkable background. Forfeit (talk) 22:12, 20 September 2014 (GMT)
  • Support:It's good to see an Oblivion gate again. The background is nothing special, but in my mind it doesn't need to be. --AN|L (talk) 00:32, 21 September 2014 (GMT)
