Regarding the thumbnail of the Walking Dead news

Could you guys use a less... well, frightening picture as the thumbnail for the Walking Dead news? I've been trying to ignore it, but it's everywhere except my tracker page.

This may seem weird to you, but seeing that thumbnail makes me really uncomfortable. I'm sure I'm not the only one, too. Not everyone watches these kind of stuff, and I don't think it should be on your homepage where anyone may see it with zero warning beforehand.

Maybe this is too much to expect, but I've always thought Sidereel was a great website with a great staff, so I wanted to try.

Thank you either way,
Rachel

Hi Rachel!

I totally understand where you're coming from and I appreciate you sharing your feedback! Totally not weird at all. We do take into consideration which images will end up plastered across the site (especially the homepage one), but it's possible that we're all just desensitized by the sight of zombies at this point! Sorry to disturb you; the image is actually leaving its perch in the homepage slideshow today, and we'll try to be more considerate going forward.

Thank you for being so understanding and for the super quick reply. I wish I could be desensitized to zombies, too!
