Avoid unnecessary images
Closed, DeclinedPublic


When the page
has been altered from a normal talk page, lists of
links and images have been added to it, almost everywhere.
Since these images are completely unnecessary, only adding
to general screen clutter and wasting space and bandwidth
and user attention, I suggest to remove them. If someone
insists in having them, I suggest making them an option
in her user preferences.

See attached screen shot.

I think usability studies (not only for Wikimedia) have resulted in the understanding that users work better with software if there are (proper) icons connected to functionality. I would not support getting rid of the icons.
