Image sizes[edit]

As one of the editors stated: And please don't change them! I don't think architecture articles should are written for those who have the smallest possible screens. One size does not fit all. . I take that as a shocking affront to everybody with small screens. And to people with poor eyesight. Because they can not cope with the excessive image sizes this user prefers. We write for everybody, not for a select group, although that user states: This style may be great for the who read only on telephones, but it looks terrible on an I-pad or a Mac Book.

It is serious concern that I have. The Banner talk 14:43, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

What are you talking about? One of what editors? The mobile view ignores the standard image formatting anyway. Myself, I don't see why "people with poor eyesight ... can not cope with the excessive image sizes" if by "excessive" large is meant. Johnbod (talk) 14:38, 2 July 2021 (UTC)

I have reverted your reinstatement of the excessive sizes. I am not 25 anymore, my eyesight is not that great so I have the zoom level at my PC at 170% to be able to read the text comfortably. Then you have really large pictures that push all text away. The Banner talk 20:28, 2 July 2021 (UTC)
Seeing that it is already reverted, it seems that "others" are not relevant towards the chosen style that only fits the chosen few. Good to know. The Banner talk 20:32, 2 July 2021 (UTC)
I looked at the Bourges Cathedral article on iphone, ipad and windows desktop (with a small longer than its wide screen), logged in and out. In each instance the way it was was better, or the same. I'm not convinced your ill tempered claims are based on reality, while my real objection, noted in the edit summary, is that the scale you imposed makes the images so small as to be no real informative, educational value.

re Lombard Bands[edit]

Respectfully suggest that these are not decorative but as originally designed were specific features that marked the site of wooden joists, the ends of which needed to be sited squarely and fully on the full width of the wall and as such the ends would be exposed to the elements and start rotting. The solution to this problem, adopted by masons was to construct individual extensions outwards of the stone work so that the ends are protected I can finds no reference to support this view M G Rogers Building Stones Consultant Rugby tel 01788 821869
