New pictures[edit]

User Bleh999 (talk · contribs) just added three photographs to the article without any edit summaries or comments here ... I changed their size from 300 pixels wide to 200 pixels, partly because this matches the image size in other articles (the reader can always click them to see a larger version), but mostly because on a 800x600 screen, because of the Wikipedia menus on the left, they took half area the area available for text display.

A bit of advice for nuggets ... you may have a nice 1600x800 display at home or the office, but a lot of academic and public access monitors are limited to 1024x768 or even 800x600, so when adding images, please lower your resolution to see how they might look to others ... in many third-world countries, 640x480 is not uncommon even today, just as dial-up modem connections are still the norm in places without a fiber-optic telecommunications infrastructure.

Also, if at all possible, print the completed page to see how it will look, because screen formatting and print formatting are not the same ... note that many browsers allow setting the printer font size independently of the screen font size, but that is more of an individual preference ... some browsers allow micro-scaling, and the difference between selecting 90% versus 87% (for example) can mean printing a final page with only one or two lines of text ... as for page faults of images when printed, that's always a crap shoot, anyway, and is influenced by the printer font size selected, which will determine the location of the top of the image on a printed page.

The important thing to remember is that public access readers often do not have the luxury of large, high-resolution monitors that home and office reader frequently use, and we have a responsibility to accommodate the "lowest common denominator" when editing Wikipedia.

Happy Editing! — 10:08, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
