Hello all - and especially moderators.
This topic has been brought up in the past but since I noticed a recent thread collecting bug reports I thought now might be a good time to bring it up again.
Thread thumbnails would make the viewing experience in the 3d/2d Art Showcase subforums a lot better. I personally cannot think of any valid reason not to enable them.
Here is a mockup done on today's content :
Is such a design tweak possible, even temporarily ?
If yes, the argument of making the viewing experience "fair" by hiding both polished and rough art behind a wall of sterile thread titles doesn't hold at all - it hurts traffic for both. As a matter of fact I am convinced that thumbnails showing unfinished pieces in obvious need for critique and help would generate traffic since people willing to help would want to click them. And of course, great pieces would attract traffic too, since even in thumbnail form one can tell that something looks great.
Let the heated discussion begin !
