Picture of the Day

The Picture of the Day is a feature on the Main Page. It is a way to feature particularly interesting pictures from among the 37,812 images that currently exist in the Memory Alpha database.

A gallery of all the Pictures of the Day can be viewed at Category:Picture of the Day.

Related Changes is also particularly handy here.

Guidelines

  • There is no nomination process at this time, just find a red link in the box to the right, and pick an interesting Memory Alpha image. The general image rules apply: properly named, cited, and with correct license boilerplate.
  • Fill in 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29 first, because those are fall-back positions for days that have no picture defined yet (Pic of the Week, in that case).
  • Each page should consist only of a template call to {{PicOfTheDay/Pic}}.
  • If the image is a screen cap, make sure it is good-quality, as in nothing over-cropped, brightened, grainy, or low-res.
  • The maximum width is 650px, and no image should be displayed larger than its actual width.
  • Pick something somewhat unique, visually appealing, interesting, and/or, important.
  • Consider what day the picture is placed on, like {{PicOfTheDay/11 October}}, but this is the least important consideration. The picture chosen should be interesting on any day. Picture of the Day is about the pictures more than it is about the days. Also, it's more important to make a Trek-universe connection to a day than a real universe one.
  • Please note that this is not a funny caption contest. It is about the pictures, and they should be interesting even if there is no caption shown. Please, however, ensure that there is an informative and simple caption on the image, complete with a proper citation.
