Why no image?

I mean, I know the obvious reason. But why isn't there a placeholder? Has the standard changed? Or have we given up on ever seeing Shawn? It could happen! --Buddy 09:06, 26 March 2008 (PDT)

Hey, mister, keep your space pants on! I mean, the character is potentially a pseudo character for good. And having a "awaiting screenie" there could be there indefinitely. And not to be totally rude and break your heart and all that you stand for (not that I believe I have done any of that with the following); I don't really like the placeholder. --SvipTalk 09:10, 26 March 2008 (PDT)
I did try creating a "No Photo Available" image a long time ago, but it was deemed universally lame. And I created it for situations just like this, since "awaiting" something that's never going to come is silly. But they all said I was mad. Mad I tell you! Now they see. Now they see and they cry. But are they sorry? No, they're not sorry. But they will be. They will be. --Buddy 09:29, 26 March 2008 (PDT)
Perhaps we can use one of the generic "No Photo Available" for people (you know the outline of a person)? Or is there an episode where we see an outline of a character in black with a question mark or something? Cause I recall seeing, but I don't remember if it was Futurama or the Simpsons... --SvipTalk 09:35, 26 March 2008 (PDT)
Okay, I've done it, I made a placeholder image for articles who cannot possible have an image. If you want me to change anything about it, just notice me. I could fix the white background, as it is going to appear on those grey coloured infoboxes. :P Note: This image is only intended for characters without images. --SvipTalk 05:20, 27 March 2008 (PDT)
Looks great! Whose silhouette is that? It looks so familiar, but I can't quite place it. --Buddy 11:56, 27 March 2008 (PDT)
It's your good friend, Poster Guy! --SvipTalk 12:12, 27 March 2008 (PDT)
Perfect! And what a great idea to use the guy who exemplifies everything as an example. --Buddy 12:15, 27 March 2008 (PDT)
