Main imageEdit

File:2 vinyl records + 1 CD.jpg was deleted as copyright violation. The image will eventually disappear from the caché. I opened a discussion at TT:WPSONGS which image should replace it. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 22:21, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Dead image linkEdit

File:Vynil record.jpg has been moved to File:Parlophone LP PMC 1202.jpg. Please update the template to reflect this move. Thank you! Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 05:49, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

No it wasn't. File:Vynil record.jpg was moved on 8 January 2013 which left it as a redirect to File:2 vinyl records + 1 CD.jpg; but that was deleted yesterday, which left an orphan redirect. I altered that redirect yesterday, but for some reason it doesn't work properly, even though File:Parlophone LP PMC 1202.jpg exists. --Redrose64 (talk) 14:38, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
Oopsy-daisy; my bad. :-( Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 17:55, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Proposed new imageEdit

There's a proposal to use a different image for WikiProject Albums. The image would appear in the {{WikiProject Albums}} template, and also in the {{User WikiProject Albums}} template. Editors are encouraged to join in the discussion, which is taking place at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Albums#WikiProject Albums image. (Please comment there and not here to keep the discussion in one place.) Mudwater (Talk) 01:42, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Edit request for new imageEdit

Please update the {{WikiProject Albums}} template, to use File:Record-Album-02.jpg instead of File:Parlophone LP PMC 1202.jpg, per the discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Albums#WikiProject Albums image. Thanks. Mudwater (Talk) 12:58, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

  Done all set. J04n(talk page) 13:24, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Change photo requests to image requestsEdit

As part of a nearly-completed shift to distinguish requests for photos from requests for images in general, it is requested that this template be modified to place talk pages in "Wikipedia requested images of..." categories, rather than the old "Wikipedia requested photographs of..." categories. As such, please supplement all references to "photo(s) of..." and "photograph(s) of..." with "image(s) of..." in both the template and its documentation, while maintaining backwards compatibility for the old "photo" parameters. In particular, change "photograph or picture" to simply "image". Note that the "Wikipedia requested images of..." categories have already been created. Thank you! — s w p b T 15:30, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

  Not done for now: per moratorium proposed at Category_talk:Wikipedia_requested_images_by_subject#Way_forward. Ahecht (TALK

Unref parameterEdit

The template has an "unref" parameter, to put the talk page in Category:Unreferenced album articles, but it is not being used and the category is currently empty. "Unreferenced" is something usually added to articles, not to talk pages, and where it has been used the category is usually not maintained; is the parameter still useful or should it be removed?
