Not sure if I formulated the title quite correctly - sorry, not my native language.
I dislike the fact that user avatars are used as post thumbnails:
- Avatars are often quite “creative”
- Hardly ever related to the topic content
Here is a tweet (in Finnish). It’s a part of discussion regarding the usage statistics of major Finnish forums/online communities.
That is freaking Ozzy Osbourne!
It’s there as there is a link in that tweet to this post and it’s the user’s avatar:
Now if you open that link, you’ll notice that in that post there would also be a discussion related image available.
Now that would make sense as the discussion on Twitter and the forum is about usage statistics.
Post content images could/should be used for thumbnailing, instead of the avatars. What do you think? Technically feasible?
