I think an option to collapse that stuff on the top right would be great, in fact I think it should be hidden by default - I mean it's just stats, basically, does anyone look at those? These things create quite a chunk of empty space further down the page.

 

It'd be nice to have the images bigger in my opinuon, but actually my main gripe is the way they are rendered to make them "fit" is the biggest issue for me, i other words photos usually just look soft and a bit shit, no matter the quality and size you upload, which is a real shame.

I’ll look into the image quality situation. Thanks for the heads up.

@Hua Guofang Can you explain a little more? I've never considered it before, but makes sense that there should be a user option top at least collapse it. One mobile it isn't present and with out layout, images stretch to virtually the full width of the device. As for desktop, yeah should be a n option to collapse it or toggle off, but what size display are you on that it squeezes the image to be so small that instagram would actually make more sense?

Sorry it took me so long to respond, busy days.

 

I do almost all of my browsing on laptops and desktops. So the below comments should be read in that context.

 

You can see in the attached image, having the stats section on the right compresses the middle section, where we post pics and responses to discussions. Previously, that middle field took up two thirds of the page. When browsing pics of graf, all you had to do was scroll, because the images took up two thirds of your screen. You could see all the detail and 'full glory' of the pics without having to open each one individually.

 

Now, the pics are compressed and small. To properly appreciate them you must open each one individually - the website seems to be configured for phones, much the way instagram is. Coming here to get an eyeful of cool pics has become more complicated for no actual gain. I would argue that the stats section on the right hand side is of little value to anyone and really only detracts from one of the core elements of this website; sharing pics of graf.

 

Cheers!

Keen to keep on posting graf pics in brickslayers, but not if it's going to be a waste of time.


sorry man, been traveling for a couple weeks with only short stints at home. 
 

The feature you’re calling out is baked in. I can’t remove it. You can definitely get more real estate collapsing the navigation on the left. Likewise, those on larger desktop monitors will naturally see a larger image as well. I’ve reached out to the developers to see if they can implement a button to collapse but support has been shitty with them always and worse since Covid. Not sure I have a solution for you. I’d send you $500 for a new monitor if I could, but not sure when a technical fix will happen since it’s not at all in my control.

Thanks for getting back to me, and yeah, not surprised. It's been a trend for years that platform creators fill the screen full of panels, widgets and switches, inevitably crowding the actual content out.

 

Sorry to be a noob, but how do you collapse the stuff on the left? I can't seem to find the button that does that.
