Two different rants combined for your convenience.

1. Ever wonder why they bothered when you click on the "full sized preview" button like at RPG Now or similar sites and get nothing more than from the writeup itself? In fact, I've found some that had absolutely nothing other than a blow-up of the cover and a page that warns you against unauthorized copying – not even a table of contents.

2. I've had it with miniatures sites that have pics too small to clearly see the product and when you click the button / link / plus sign / whatever, you then get a pop-up image that is either the same size as the original, or the difference is so insignificant as to be pointless.

I always write up something different for the WGV info and spend a lot of time figuring out what to select for the preview.

I do, however, not appreciate linked pics that are the same as the smaller preview.
