I really should have been asleep two hours ago.  
Dear Person Messing with Pictures on the Wiki,

I give you until the time I wake up again to fix your errors. If they're still there, I will fix them for you.

I never realized that Shimon and Chigi were the same person o.O

The ones they have of Wao are fine, but they need a credit as to who and where the picture is from. The other pictures are of rather low quality :P

Sometimes I wonder if it would be better if only editors could change pictures (although that would make it just one more thing for them to do). Otherwise you end up having perfectly good pictures overwritten by something blurry and grainy.

That's my opinion as well, but a wiki is a wiki.
I wouldn't protest against a rule like that, especially as it happens more often recently that someone who never ever did something on the wiki thinks that a picture they have look better than the wiki one and changes it just like that.

Okay, you have a point, a wiki is a wiki.

But maybe if anything there should be a note saying that one should stop and think about why they're putting up a new picture. Something along the lines of if it's a more recent picture and the quality is the same, then go ahead. But maybe you should think twice if you're going to replace a picture with something that is blurry and grainy.

(Also, I think it works best when there is one offstage picture and one onstage)

I think just set standards for pictures would help a lot. As in such and such size, one offstage and one onstage only, do not replace the picture currently there unless you have one that is of similar quality and more recent than the one currently up. Just that would resolve a lot of these issues I would imagine, or would at least give people a definite reason why their pictures were being changed.

Actually, we *have* most of these rules.
And until now I thought not replacing a high quality one with a low quality one is a matter of intelligence.

It's such a matter of common sense that I don't think I realised there was actually set out rules for pictures, although I'm certainly glad there are. In that case I think it comes down to a Wiki being a Wiki and the whole nature of it being user edited and contributed. Perhaps not allowing people to edit pages until they've been members for a certain amount of time? Although that does create a lot of work as well.

Some pictures I believe don't need to be changed as they're perfect the way it is but some pictures mysteriously don't have credit of who scanned them, :(

The thing is, people who randomly put up new pictures where there is no actual reason too, are usually the people that don't give a damn for admin posts and rules :/
