Make cover images relevant

  • Under Consideration
Instead of presenting random images on the cover page, you could parse the title of stories and search for public domain images from the web. For example, on my cover page I have an article with "Cambridge string theorist to succeed Stephen Hawking" associated with a irrelevant image (albeit very colourful). There is a public domain image of Stephen Hawking on wikipedia which would have been more appropriate. This might be harder to do than I think but would be cool.

Joseph. You are right. This is something we need to get better at. But it is a hard problem. Will add it to the 3.0 roadmap document. In the meantime, we will try to tone down some of the more colorful placeholders. Thanks for the suggestion!

OK.. they're placeholders. I was wondering just how many generative art feeds I was subscribed to?! ...looking forward to something somehow relevant taking their place soon.
