Post profiling on front page

Hi all,

We recently started profiling topics on the top of the front page as a trial.

In order to be profiled, the software requires the first post of the topic to have a picture. That’s just how the software rolls.

So please try to include a picture when you are starting a new topic!

"Profiling " is not what I usually consider a good thing. What do you mean by profiling ?

My unsolicited opinion is I don’t like the crop on the photos. Klyeoh’s photo looks fine but Chem’s looks unfortunate.

First thing that crossed my mind. It must be the California that still lives on in me.

What happens with no photo?
Does it deliver a message like a disapproving mother urging us to do better?
:slight_smile:

Hmm, maybe a better word is highlighting.

Way better.

The post doesn’t appear in the front page. The software just won’t do it…

The software does all the cropping automatically. No control over this unfortunately.

I get that, I don’t think it works well with photos.

I think the aspect ratio of most photos in posts ranges from 14:9, 5:4, 3:2 or a square.

Of course it depends on the size of the screen we’re using. So each of us will see different things. On my 13" laptop, it seems it works the best when 4 photos are showed at the same time. 2 or 3 photos tend to make into a narrow banner format, and crop too much detail from the photos.
