Sunny BirthPlace of the wiki photo on front page eats real estate
AAAIIIEEEE Godzilla VS Mothra VS Sunny BirthPlace
It is the photo that ate the room for featured articles!
Seriously, though, that is a ton of real estate with all the Occupy Portland things going down.
Can we size it back a bit?
Maybe use the Democracy in Action Portland Style pic? It is pretty relevant.
Yeah, I agree it uses too much real estate. I've been wanting to change it to something shorter, but I haven't been able to find any freely licensed, good-quality, Portland-related images that have better dimensions than this one (shorter vertically and wider horizontally). It has to be wide enough to stretch the full 100% width on most displays, otherwise it creates white gaps to the left and right of it. If you know of any shorter/wider pictures that would be awesome. What's the Democracy in Action Portland Style pic? Do you have a link?
If we can't find an image with better dimensions then I guess we could split it up into columns and have the photo just take up half the page like we had before, but I personally don't think that looks as slick... it's a hard balance.
Eventually the whole PortlandWiki skin will be fixed-width so this problem won't exist anymore, but that may be a long way off...
