Out of makeup picture in infoboxEdit

Just a note as to why I have updated the main infobox to a real-life pic of Forbes. 1 - it is a very current picture of her, as TNG has been over more than 14 years now. It is real life, no makeup. Yes the other pics of her have very little makeup but they are in universe. We have real-world pics of countless actors in there real-world infoboxes, even though their makeup on the show is minimal. Examples are Nana Visitor, Terry Farrell, Nicole de Boer, Jeri Ryan, Tim Russ, Leonard Nimoy, Zachary Quinto, Robert Beltran, Scarlett Pomers. Countless that appear the same on the show as in real life have real-world images too. Such as Patrick Stewart, Chris Pine, Alexander Siddig, Marina Sirtis, Kate Mulgrew. For this reason I say it is 100% completely acceptable as well as suitable for this real-world image of Michelle Forbes to be the main infobox image. Ejfetters 04:16, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

You're kidding yourself if you feel she doesn't have makeup on in that picture... :) A more suitable image, though, would be one straight on rather than a profile. — Morder (talk) 04:34, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
By all means if a recent front-facing head shot is found and conforms to image policy I agree with you. And yeah, no makeup there, lol, I meant Trek makeup (Bajoran ridges) but you knew that :) Ejfetters 07:13, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
