hehe, i suppose investing a million $$ to get you turning it off because
in your way is probably not the goal :)
Well, for a million $$ MediaViewer would be slightly overpriced ;-)

Indeed, the icon to the File: page is currently
very opaque. We're
preparing for a round of possible changes to the viewing experience,
- moving caption above the fold so readers don't have to hunt for it
- moving disable action above-the-fold
- potentially eliminating the below-the-fold panel entirely
- emphasizing the File: page more prominently as the canonical source
- separating out download/use actions more clearly
These changes will need to be carefully tested/validated. If you want
to take a look at an early early (!) prototype (!!), see
, but please
magnus, do these changes make you turn it on again? if not, what would need
to be better?
I think this is a non-issue. It took one click to get to the image page;
now it takes two. That's my main "problem" with it.
As I said, I'm not the target audience for this. I hope.
i think there is two kinds of feedback. (1) technical / feature / workflow
issues. like "i cannot tag easy", "esc leaves mediaviewer instead of
fullscreen", "browser zoom (ctrl-/+) does not work". "X takes one
more now". i d love this to be taken into account.
while i find design issues more difficult. the whole user experience
needs, at least imo, consistency. tinkering here and there
may quite heavily break that. better would be to encourage
getting alternative full designs. if this would include how to
clean the commons page ... but that might be too much :)
