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 53,017 images that currently exist in the Memory Alpha database.

A gallery of all the Pictures of the Day can be viewed at Category: Memory Alpha pictures of the day.

Related Changes is also particularly handy here.

Guidelines

  • There is no nomination process, just pick an interesting Memory Alpha image. The general image rules apply: properly named, cited, and with the correct license boilerplate.
  • 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29 are fall-back positions for days that have no picture defined yet; it becomes a 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 capture, make sure it is good quality, as in nothing over-cropped, brightened, grainy, or low-res.
  • Pick something 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.
  • 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.
