Thumbnail suggestion

Okay, so you know how when you go to publish a project, it is automatically cropped to a random part of the screen? What if it automatically showed the whole screen on the thumbnail instead?
Don’t get it? Okay, instead of this being default for when you publish:


It would be this:

Or…maybe there could be a little text down in the corner like this (except maybe a little smaller):

A lot of people might ask why we would need this, but there are 2 main reasons that this would be helpful:

  1. A lot of new users don’t know how to crop a thumbnail, and that usually means they don’t get noticed a lot because people are typically drawn to projects that look good.
  2. Artists waste their time unless the whole drawing shows

Feel free to share your thoughts!

Good idea
Basic users won’t click bait anymore

I mean, you could still crop it, but the default when you hit publish would be zoomed out

Basic users don’t know how to zoom out though
So they’ll be stuck with the full outer screen

Or you could have the 3rd option in the top post that instructs you to crop as desired

Lol, that’s funny…

Well, yeah to get back on topic, from what I know, in Hopscotch’s early days, the whole picture would come up in the thumbnail. Evr since August 2016 wen I joined HS, I remember a lot of ppl complaining about the new crop thingy. (Sorry if I went off topic or something, just a thought…)
