    What do you guys feel about making blocks in wiki pages a bit bigger. Maybe not as big this grass block in the wiki page above but... how about this size:

    It'd be nice to see the blocks instead of having to squint :(. Could we zoom in on the already small pictures or should we take another pic of the blocks?

    Do you mean the icons in crafting grids and such like in this image? If so, that likely won't happen since rebuilding all the crafting grid stuff to be able to use different sized icons will take a ridiculous amount of work.

    Or do you mean the image in the infobox on the right? If so, it is mostly just a matter of someone dumping higher resolution images, uploading them, and setting the {{{image}}} parameter of {{Infobox}} appropriately.

    hey reptep

    Whoah what is that receipe haha nice.
    Anyway, I mean the image in the infobox on the right. I might be interested in dumping higher resolution. Would we be able to start by copying the image from the official minecraft wikipedia: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Minecraft_Wiki? Should we decide on a specific dimension and file size?

    I like the my example grass block wikipedia article. It has both a zoomed version of the block plus the original small image below it.

    That recipe is from https://ftb.gamepedia.com/Circuit_Wiring_(Copper)

    There's no need to copy images from the minecraft wiki. The way we currently dump images for the wiki using NEI lets us easily dump them in higher resolutions if need be. I'll talk with other staff to see if we can decide on a standard size for them and way to do it. I'm thinking 128x128 is probably a good size.

    Yes, if we do start adding the larger image, it won't replace the existing smaller images. The Infobox is already capable of doing what we need, so it's just a matter of standardizing and getting people to start doing it.

    I'm having a trouble on where to start tackling the wiki; something easy and repetitive like this would be a good start for me. Lemme know if its approved and the steps :)

    Something like this would be better suited by a bot than a human, since it is just mindlessly uploading images and doing the same tiny edit to hundreds or thousands of pages. So I'd probably recommend finding some other way to help the wiki. There are a lot of mods that are missing huge amounts of documentation, perhaps you could write some articles for them.
