[edit] Infobox modification

I was wondering, is there any way to make the infobox accommodate the, very much, the one and only image of such an obscure character such as Langon, without making the page look ridiculous? --IvarTheBoneless

To Mith: Also, you can simply reduce the size of the image and re-upload it, so that it fits nicely in the infobox. --IvarTheBoneless
You have the power to make the image smaller on the page, but the basically answer to your first question is "no", because there just isn't enough content on the page. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 10:42, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

For the record, I don't have any problem viewing this article with or without an infobox. Considering Mith's comments on Sauron's article and its images, I guess that Mith has a different display (widescreen I would guess?) and the TG engine doesn't render well in those displays. I think there should be some compromise, because while some articles appear wrong to Mith and other users, they appear fine in other (most?) users. Sage 08:35, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

It looked fine to me, I thought the problem was the nature of the image rather than the size. Gaetano 09:51, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
I do on my home PC but not on my work or tablet where it also looked a bit silly. If the infobox with the image was not extending beyond the bottom of the content then you must have had a tiny resolution!
In any case, as TG is running such old software our design isn't responsive so images have to work on all resolutions. Sorry. It'll be easier when we change software. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 20:24, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
