Going back to the WF era, featuring images was very much down to the opinion of an admin. Even now anyone can slap the template onto an image and it will make the front page. For some time now I've wondered how we can do better with this.
I think this era of transition would be a perfect opportunity to revisit this and create a more rigid system for deciding what images get featured. I believe the best framework for such a policy would be the way they do it on Wikimedia Commons as seen here.
Users can nominate images based on a set of criteria, in our case we could use rarity, historical merit, quality (e.g. an especially high quality capture of a a known, yet rare logo).
The community then gets to vote. If the image has more than 7 votes of support after 9 days or a support:oppose ratio of 2:1 (two thirds majority), it gets passed and the template is added by a crat.
