Improved Visual Quality For Image Covers

27 Feb

Image covers will stay at the same size for the listing pages for stories, forums and communities but the display quality of these image covers has been upgraded significantly. In addition, placing your mouse cursor over the image cover will now reveal a larger version.

Tips for those that use image covers to enhance their stories:

  1. Use only a single high contrast color for your story title within the image cover.  Choose either white or black font color for best legibility. Avoid using pink, red, blue, yellow, and orange colors for in-cover titles. 
  2. Pick a very large, simple, non-cursive/stylish font for your in-cover titles. Your title should take up more than 25% your image cover height if not more.
  3. If the in-cover title does not fit on one line, break it up into two or three lines.

    Is there a way to report avatars or these images? I’ve seen one user with hentai, the explict kind, as their avatar and its been that way for a long time. Whatever happened to “13” and older? Cause, you know, kids can’t look at naked people on the web and stuff.

      That would be by reporting them on their page, IIRC.

      I’m more interested to know if they are ever going to update the information on the cover page of itself. :-/

        They can fix the three typos in Tips while they’re at it. Those have been bugging me for months.

    Great now I can see the image more clearly, some images are too small detailed to see good to know you fix the problem.

    Oh my gosh, thank you! All of my covers are cut off from the top and bottom, covering up some faces. So seeing a larger version when hovering is perfect (assuming its viewable like when looking at the image in your art program, if that made any sense, lol) I’ll have to test it when I’m on the computer (using my 3DS right now)

    There’s a problem with communities showing the correct number of stories a community has, my community has been showing I have a total collected 930 stories when last week my community showed that it had 996 and I’m still adding stories yet my collected still shows 930 even though as far as I can see no stories are missing from my community
