Thumbnail size (poll)
#1
What do you think about the current thumbnail size? Is it OK? Or is it better to increase it? To give you some ideas:

single-glove-bondage-art-102.jpg thumbnail    - current (this one is clickable)

[Image: single-glove-bondage-art-102-96px.jpg] 96px 3.89KB
[Image: single-glove-bondage-art-102-120px.jpg] 120px 5.26KB
[Image: single-glove-bondage-art-102-140px.jpg] 140px 7.08KB
[Image: single-glove-bondage-art-102-160px.jpg] 160px 8.82KB
[Image: single-glove-bondage-art-102-190px.jpg] 190px 11.50KB


On one hand it's easier to see without clicking on the image, what may save some traffic and clicks. OTOH, the pages will load slower and will be larger. On one hand, Google might prefer the bigger size, OTOH, even 190px is not big enough to show in the image search.

(And please do not tell me that MyBB attachment system is atrocious - I already know it ... the hard way Big Grin ) But the thumbnail size can be changed automatically (I hope it works as promised Wink ).

190px is still small enough to make pages load quickly on a poor connection but big nough to see what the image is without having to open it.
Currently its a bit too small.

It's the same with IMDB though, so you're in good company.

Let's check the extrema. The archives have 80 thumbnails per page - ~800KB. Additional 8KB per image will result in ~1.4MB. Still not bad, indeed.

On one hand this is true, on the other, the thumbnails should have enough details to decide if clicking on them is needed (especially, if there are more). For example, on the smallest thumbnail above you can't see that, the girl in strappado is wearing a harness gag.

Just made a test, that should make the final decision easier: I used Google Image search with all sizes:

95px - nothing found. Google did not recognize what's on the picture.
120px - nothing found. A "person" was recognized.
140px - 2 pages. Google thinks, that it's about "Female submission". Not bad!
160px - 3 pages. "Female submission"
190px - 3 pages. "Female submission"

The smallest images in the results are 96x150px.

So, 160px is the golden mean here.
