[[This thread was posted on Help and Support but was moved to Forget Cricket]]

On Wikipedia, on the Dhaka page, we have two images and
we cannot decide which image should be the image of Dhaka article,
one of them shows most known buildings of Dhaka (current image)
and one of them is a brilliant special effect image at night, but
which one is a suitable image for Dhaka, click the links below to see, Thanks and vote which one should it be, please note the night picture is not really suited for Wikipedia but can be accepted.

Image 1 (current): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Dhaka-skyline-aymash.jpg
or
Image 2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Dhaka_city.jpg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imagehaka_city.jpg)

Please vote for the sake of Wikipedia, Thankyou.

this was a very thoughtful act- to ask people in here what they thought before putting up the pics.....

Er, sorry to be a party-pooper, but I don't think a random messageboard thread can be used decide which picture should go to a wikipedia article.

This is the reason why the "General questions thread" exists in the Forget Cricket forum :)

So far, there's only one person who replied in this thread that has "mod" like abilities. And that is Arnab.

Just so that you know, admins and mods are the ones who keep civility in the forum. Other BC staff have no hand on this.

Back to the issue...whether this thread is a legit one or not, that's a different issue. But my personal preference would be to have this thread in FC, not support forum.

To be honest there are quite a few threads in this sub-forum that should go to FC. Support should be just for BC related threads, and at most about computer fixing upping threads since its becoming conventional.

Anyways... I'm moving this. Doesnt belong in Support in any way.

Maybe you guys can contribute to Wikipedia, im currently working on the Bangladesh section, editing most pages and adding images, try to contribute to the pages, but I havent gained enough trust in the community, because I upload too many images that are copyright protected, thats the thing you guys could do, so any volunteers to help Wikipedia expand???

Here check out my User Page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Moshino31
You can create your own page and you talk page. (Please dont violate it please)

Moshin, the "help and support" is mostly about getting help on BanglaCricket site-related issues, although it has been abused to talk about problems on any kind of issue dealing with computers in general.

Going by content, your thread is more appropriate here.
