Portal:US Railways/Selected picture/Suggestions

From TrainSpottingWorld, for Rail fans everywhere
Jump to: navigation, search

On this page, we will discuss and select the images that are to be featured on Portal:US Railways.



How to add your nomination

  1. Find an image related to rail transport that you think is very good.
  2. In the nominations section below, add a third level section header with the linked image title as the section name (=== [[:Image:Image title]] ===). Below this new header, add your reasons for nomination and sign your nomination with ~~~~.
    • Be sure to use the leading colon in the section heading so it displays as a link and not as the image.
    • It is helpful to include a thumbnail of the image within the nomination section. If you do, be sure to put a line break ({{-}}) at the end of the nomination section so nominations don't all flow together.

Supporting and opposing

  • If you approve of a picture, write "Support" followed by your reasons.
    • A nomination is considered a vote in support, so nominators don't need to add another vote to their nominations.
  • If you oppose a nomination, write "Oppose" followed by the reasons for your objection. Where possible, objections should provide a specific rationale that can be addressed.
    • To withdraw an objection, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.

Current nominations



The locomotive used for Abraham Lincoln's funeral train in 1865. I always find new details when I look at images of this period, and this relatively well known photograph is no exception. Slambo (Speak) 14:28, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
