Vanilla Add-on Thumbnail Size

edited May 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I am just wondering if anyone else finds the thumbnails on the Add-ons page way too small to be of any use? Often I just want more information without having to install the add-on. I think the thumbnail should at least link to a high-res version in which one can clearly see the theme/style/extension in all it's glory.

Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words.

    Including a few added screenshots would be a nice feature, however it's not absolutely necessary given the nature of a few extensions. However it would be useful for styles where necessary.

    You're thinking of feature like those found at updates.mozilla, aren't you?

    Yeah, isn't mozilla secretly using Vanilla for its Addon section? Thought I read that somewhere...

    Anyway, yeah, although more images would be nice, my main beef is that the one image shown in the Vanilla Add-ons section show is too small to see any detail. Or it's just a cropped version. And certainly DO NOT have an image link to a popup image of the same size image. I see that time and time again. So silly.

    larger images and larger file size.
    btw the Addon comment box allows html. the extension developers can add lot of big images in it.
    Like I did with my Nuggets Extensions.

    edited May 2007 Examples of what Schiz was talking about. I agree it would be nice if you could just click on the thumbnail and get a bigger picture ThickBox stylee, without having to load up the whole page.

    Yeah, although developers CAN enter html and use large images doesn't mean they do. Schizo excluded. :) Thickbox with next/previous functionality would rock!
