    The thumbnail can be of any aspect ratio (within the limits), regardless of the aspect ratio of the submitted piece.

    Do not want.

    Prefer consistent, grid style, uniform thumbs.

    Please ensure there's an option to NOT use this new, horrible, disorganized option.

We do have an open API so that users can create third-party extensions that enhance Weasyl's functionality on their platform of choice. Noxid's Weasyl Enhancer extension mentioned a few posts up seems like exactly what you're looking for.
    Would making tap and hold also bring up the overlay count as "treating mobile as a separate project"?

    Hi there, Firehazard.

    I know that this isn't directly related to the topic at hand, but I did want to bring to your attention another change made about a week back that you'd asked to have addressed, which was 'Many pages having a title of 'Weasyl''.

    We identified several places where a more descriptive HTML title could be put in place, and have done so. If you'd like to take a look around, please see if you find the additions more to your liking, and if history is more navigable now. Thanks!

    Hi, PlayPossum. I think Hendikins clarified the ratio issue (i.e. you can crop what you want from the image as long as the final thumbnail has a max ratio between 2:1 and 1:2).

    On the notion of distinguishing between different submission types, the new thumbnails will distinguish between music and non-music submissions based on subtype, but that's it right now. We could detect shockwave easily but I don't know what an icon for that should look like. Some embedded links, such as YouTube, provide us with thumbnails that we use if none is provided.

    For things like generating text previews or looking into mp3s, it's good ideas and doable (although do our users utilize the cover art tags in their mp3s? I honestly don't know), but it requires supporting another library in the code base. So I can't say when that will be done or if it even will at all. If text previews are something a lot of people want, though, and they request them, we'll certainly look into it.

    Thanks.

    EDIT: Ah. I see that in your other screenshot, type of a multimedia submission is indicated with a tiny corner icon. Interesting.

    First of all, BIG THANK YOU!

    It wasn't that big issue for me personally but if this kept many people away from Weasyl, then I'm happy it's fixed!

    If they use proper CSS, then it will take less than a minute to write a user Style you can use with the Stylish addon for any major browser, and have them gridded for you.

    BUT... the beats the whole purpose, IMO.

    Remember, there was lost of discussion on how to properly address this, since some pics are very wide, or tall, etc. and forcing them into equal size boxes would make those very tiny. This was the main issue with properly sized thumbnails, that was brought up. This fluid design is the solution for that!

    Still... once it's out I can whip up a User Style and give instructions on how to use it, for those who want grid boxes...

    P.s.: I got OCPD, lack of organization drives me nuts, and yet, I will rather use the fluid design because it is simply much more efficient.

    That's like calling bananas horrible, tasteless things, just because you personally don't like them.

    I got OCPD and I prefer the new fluid one...

    What's the point of an organized grid if you can'§t see sh*t from the actual pics?

    Most likely will be easily doable via a local CSS, like as what I suggested for restoring grid for those who want that.

    My understanding is that if it requires detection of what sort of device Weasyl is being viewed with to determine the appropriate UI behavior, it's a no-go. Reading would be difficult with a finger in the way anyways.

    Try out that browser extension. I use it myself, it's pretty nifty.

    It's an improvement, yeah. Adding "Home" to the home page might have actually been overkill, at least once all the other pages with titles of just "Weasyl" had been dealt with. And they haven't; the notifications pages as well as staff posts (like the one that directed me to this thread) are still generic. Everything else seems to be fixed.

    I'd like to add my voice to those who would like a fixed grid with variable whitespace to be an option. While this kind of layout is nice for simply looking at a bunch of images and possibly picking a couple out, I have long found it sucks when it comes to going through them all.
