Deletion rationale Edit
In this instance the day is being featured and not the image. There is no real Trek connection to 9/11, the image's connection is even weaker. This is not a place for this kind of memorial, maybe because it is too serious for a Trek fan website. Anyway, this is supposed to be fun, and Trek in general is supposed to be hopeful. Furthermore, the PotD is supposed to be about featuring interesting images. It's cool to fit the image into a related day, but as I mentioned on Template:PicOfTheDay, the day connection should be the least important consideration. The weakest argument I have, but I'll mention it anyway, is that when I first looked at it, I thought it was lame, not serious. The exact opposite reaction one could assume the person was going for. --Bp 01:44, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
- i agree. it's a nice sentiment, but a little cheesy and the reminder for us to "remember" is mostly useless. the date speaks for itself, one of our more beautiful pictures might be more appropriate. delete Deevolution 01:52, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
- There is a mild Trek connection, an image seen in the timestream in "Storm Front, Part II", but I agree that this is far too weak a link, and that this has become something about the day, not the image. I would not suggest using our 9/11 image for that day either, as it is not a very good quality image. Delete. --OuroborosCobra talk 01:54, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
- I definitely don't want to see that ---------------------->>
