    Size of images[fontem recensere]

    Donatello, the default size of images in Vicipaedia is 250px; the code doesn't need to be cluttered up with a marking of 250px if the desired outcome is 250px. I therefore deleted your coding of 260px, but now you're restored it. Is there a reason that you think 260px looks better than 250px? If so, why not go higher, up to, say, 300px or 350px.

    You are right, Iacobe -- there is no need to specify a size scarcely different from the standard -- but there's another point too. I understand that for accessibility (accommodating to users' equipment with varying screen sizes) it is better to avoid using an absolute px size and preferable to use a proportional size with the help of |upright=|. As follows: if the standard width is wanted, add nothing, as Iacobus says. If a width larger than the standard is wanted, use |upright=1.25| or |upright=1.5| (or, very rarely, even a higher number). The 1.5 means "default width plus one half".
    UV, my original source on this, may now chip in and tell me I'm out of date ... Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 09:02, 3 Iulii 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Exactly, nothing has changed. In general, it is preferable not to specify an absolute size in pixels, but instead just to say |thumb| – that way, users who prefer to see pictures larger can specify so in their preferences, as can users who prefer to see pictures smaller. |thumb|upright| is the method of choice for tall images (to prevent that they take too much vertical screen space). |thumb|upright=number| can be used either for extremely tall images (use a number smaller than 1) or for images that, for exceptional reasons, should be shown wider than the other images (use a number larger than 1). --14:32, 3 Iulii 2016 (UTC)
