I want to add my two cents on the choice of images in the character infoboxes, but I didn't want to interrupt a conversation that wasn't really my business, so I thought I'd message you directly. I think the Duke image being the primary image is a bit weird, and it would be like having the images of Bill and Ben having numbers in their infobox.
A thought I've had for a while which you partly bought up in the last message was that I don't think images of characters with early designs like Diesel 10 and Molly should be in the infoboxes. That's because they were ideas that weren't final decisions and therefore decided not to be used in the TV series episodes/movies, but still managed to be seen through other means.
I also don't think images of characters as scrap like Trevor, Oliver, Toad, and Hiro deserve to be in the infoboxes too. They are just the characters aged and gotten dirty. They have more in common with engines that have had accidents compared to engines that have had different paintjobs lasting more than a day. The scrap characters appeared to look the same before they become scrap as what they did after they were rescued.
Mind if I ask why you think it's nessesary to add Duke's image from ThomasMerchandise on his front page. I understand it shows Duke's update since he was repainted back from Bertrum, but that image isn't on the show so I personally think it shouldn't be there. Just on the Gallery page.
Hi there, sorry for the lack of comunication, me and several others of the TTTE wikia staff have decided to put this shot in his infobox because it displays the most up to date appearence of his model, and considering the fact that he's been repainted since we've last seen him it seems only fitting to put it there.
I understand, but since Duke's state as of now is pretty much the same, having a BTS photo does not look right on the info box, especially since it is not from any actual source material, just a picture of a model train.
It's a similar scenario to if they had showed a redesign of a character (Like Rosie, for example) in some sort of obscure media like magazine or an annual rather than the show, that'd be in the infobox
