  •   Support Unusual and interesting. Should be a VI.--Peulle (talk) 11:18, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment Interesting and the first time I've seen one of these, so no idea if it's FP standard. The detail of the scan seems poor. Charles (talk) 11:34, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment - Am I missing something? This doesn't look nearly big or detailed enough for FP. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 18:16, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
  •   Neutral I like the idea of this sort of thing being featurable, but without some way to better assess the detail (i.e., zoom in) I don't know about this one. Daniel Case (talk) 18:36, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Now that I've figured out how to zoom in, I concur with Cart about how poor the detail is. Daniel Case (talk) 17:16, 5 May 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment Daniel, Charles, Ikan and all the rest. You spin the thing around with mouse movements but you zoom in on it with the scroll wheel (at least I did). Just do it gently, it is very tricky to maneuver (!) and before you know it, you have her navel covering your entire screen. I may have missed some finer control things. There should be some text about how to manage this in the file description. Also (AFAICS), this is not just something to look at, it is a digital blueprint for making this statue in a 3D-printer. --Cart (talk) 22:16, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment - Thanks. I tried using the middle button on my mouse. I didn't find it that easy to manipulate the way I wanted to, though. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 00:05, 2 May 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support Rotate with the mouse pointer, zoom with the scroll, and translate with the pointer while pressing the right button -- Basile Morin (talk) 02:53, 2 May 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose highly interesting, useful, valuable, encyclopedic, etc. - but not a "Featured Picture" to a grumpy old man like me who longingly and fondly remembers the olden days when photos were still photos. ;-) --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 06:28, 2 May 2018 (UTC)
I wouldn't object to selecting the file for Media of the day... --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 12:19, 2 May 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose per Martin from a grumpy old woman but mainly because we expect more from a computer image these days, more visual appeal a better user interface. It is a novelty on this forum, not so much in the programming community. I have also changed the FP category on the nom from "objects" to "Non-photographic media/Computer-generated#Other" where it is more suitable. --Cart (talk) 08:06, 2 May 2018 (UTC)
