  • Nominate and support. Deltabeignet 21:45, 12 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Neutral Do something about that Great Wall of China length picture description, then I will reconsider. TomStar81 22:00, 12 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Oppose While I love geeky stuff, this does not make the cut for FP. Denni 23:41, 2005 May 12 (UTC)
  • Support Good and informative picture. Only the "template for deletion" has to be sorted out, and the text copied in the appropriate location. -- Chris 73 Talk 05:28, May 13, 2005 (UTC)
  • Support - beautifully clear picture, with very excellent descriptive stuff - Adrian Pingstone 22:01, 13 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support – great illustration, really descriptive and informative. --Spangineer 01:08, May 14, 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Informative, but just not a great photo. ed g2stalk 10:12, 14 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support. I would like to see more illustrations like this in the wikipedia. --Bernard Helmstetter 13:42, 15 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Usefull, support extra special support if it and the others pics are moved to commons for others to use. BrokenSegue 23:57, 16 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • comment. oppose I think that this is a great pic and I see on the pic's page that the numbered items are explained, but I would really like to see a small key at least naming the items in the pic itself. this way when it is copyied elsewhere (even without the text which the wikipediea would include) that data will not be lost.

    • for example: 1: Male Type A USB connector 2:RISC based mass data controller 3:test connector used durring manufacturing...
      • I'm generally reluctant to put text on an image itself as a) it looks kinda crappy when the image is thumbnailed and b) it really looks ghastly on a foreign language wikipedia. -- John Fader (talk | contribs) 19:18, 17 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
        • Putting text directly in the image inhibits translations, so the numbered labelling is prefered by Commons. Anyone using the image elsewhere jolly well ought to pick up the text on the image description page, as under GFDL they need to preserve the attribution information. -- Solipsist 06:02, 18 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
          • I see your point that Arabic numerals seem to have caught on faster than English but I still feel that the picture should stand on its own accord bot needing further explination in order to make sense. Also, I didn't see this keep Image:Gun-type Nuclear weapon.png from getting FP. Cavebear42 17:44, 18 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
            • Well Commons was just getting going in Nov/Dec 2004, and neither the Nuclear Weapon example nor this nom are actually on Commons. Personally I would prefer direct labeling in English too, but then I'm an English speaker and don't use the other Wiki's much. On the other hand I can appreciate that it is a highly significant factor for ease of translation, coupled with which I just translated a rather nice diagram on insect that came from the Polish wiki yesterday (in fact I'm considering nominating that diagram). I doubt I would have bothered if the Polish labels had been embedded. It also seems harsh to object on grounds which are expressly recommended on our sister projects. -- Solipsist 19:54, 18 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support. Well done. We could do with more illustrations like this. The lead image on keydrive is about what I would expect, but this is so much better. -- Solipsist 06:02, 18 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support. More stuff like this please. — Chameleon 20:26, 20 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support. Did you have to sacrifice the usb key for the photo or was it still OK? :-) --Fir0002 06:22, May 22, 2005 (UTC)
