image and text size

i'm not sure if this is a result of the new redesign, but everything on the site seems to be way smaller. text - especially in the page editor - and most of the images on most pages are very small. should they be resized, is this something to do with the redesign, or is there something else going on here? i picked this page to start the discussion on because there's a fair amount of screenshots from the movie that are good examples of the issue.

In theory, image thumbnails are about the same size (looks like they're maybe 4px x 4px smaller), and text should actually be larger than before. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of device do you use--phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop? The current layout hasn't been set up for small screens yet. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 22:04, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
i'm using macos on a macbook, with chrome as my browser. the place i'm most seeing the issue is on the page editor (where i'm typing this) and the text is quite small. still readable, but i'd definitely bump up the font size if it was up to me. Intelligence4 (talk) 21:42, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
Hmm it looks fine on macOS in Chrome to me. Just checking, have you edited your zoom settings? And do you have any extensions installed that may be affecting things? If not, could you provide a screenshot? (Of course the whole screen isn't necessary, just the actual content part of the browser.) -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 00:27, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
nope, haven't messed with that at all. where would i post said screenshot? Intelligence4 (talk) 13:44, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Maybe imgur? (By the way we just updated MediaWiki, which changed the edit box font.) -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 19:33, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

original aspect ratio

i came across some versions of mask of light (and the other movies) posted online (on someone's dropbox) and noticed that they're all in 16:9 widescreen. considering the original copies were released in the first half of the aughts, when widescreen wasn't really a common thing yet, and most of, well, everything, was in 4:3, why would MoL have been? also, the screenshots we have here are in the standard aspect ratio. was there ever a widescreen release of the bionicle movies? or are what i've found remastered versions that have cropped some of the original frame away to fit 16:9?

From the infobox: Starring Christopher Gaze, Michael Dobson, Paul Dobson. Michael Dobson plays Kopaka/Hewkii, who can be aruged are not the stars of the movie, and Paul Dobson is not even in this movie... Why are they listed as the stars? I'd also argue the list of stars in the Web of Shadows infobox is also inaccurate. ~ Wolk (talk) 22:34, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Krana Trivia

I need to point this out, because it truly annoys me. After the "Krana" concept art for MoL surfaced, the news about alleged plans for Rahkshi being controlled by Krana circle around the Bionicle community. I just think that jumping on a gun and saying that "They were planned to be Krana" is really misinforming, since the artwork itself is clearly showing a snake-like creature, with some elements characteristic for set version of Kraata (the dotty eyes, the "gills" creating fake eyes etc.). Even the first image on the second page, which is showing only the head part of the creature, like on the first page schematic of the head, has a faintly sketched out lengthy tail behind it. Besides, other shots of the same creature show their stretchy, snake-like body, the spine plates and spikes, which would make absolutely no sense in case of Krana. And the last point I want to make, is that I doubt that the concept art was made by a person that was immersed in the lore and lingo of the series as much as we are, hence we can see, on this one document, word Krana written in two different ways (Krana/Kraana), with the second one pointing even more towards the mistake on the artist's part. For that reasons, I personally consider sharing the "news" about Rahkshi controled by Krana a misinformation.

All of the above reffers to this link: concept, the Rahkshi were originally controlled by Krana

EDIT: Even better, here's the author's statement on the names, from his DA account: on Bionicle Rahkshi Head Concept 01 by HeavyMetalDesigner

Why is this a thing then? I'm more than sure that he didn't know/didn't remember that the Kraata controlled the Rahkshi, and called them Krana on the paper. People makes mistakes, he made one, when he was writing that's it.— SurelNuva (Talk) 15:03, 17 November 2019 (UTC)

That's exactly my point, one guy made a mistake, which happens, especially in such lingo-heavy enviorment, and now whole fandom treats it like a word of god. And I felt like making a discussion topic was the best move in this case, cause straight up deleting the trivia point would make someone else angry "Because they wrote Krana, so it was Krana" --Kluuucha (talk) 15:15, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
Don't worry, I've just rephrased it to keep it clean.— SurelNuva (Talk) 20:17, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
