Description Johannes Claesson 2022-01-16 10:58:49 UTC
The number of products listed on https://bugs.kde.org/enter_bug.cgi makes it difficult to file your bug reports in the correct product. If we could see a screenshot of the product either when hovering the product link or on https://bugs.kde.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=theproduct

The effects would be that:
- the reporter would categorize correctly more often
- that we would get more reported bugs, because the enter bug page is frightening enough to scare away some reporters
- that it would be easier to which products are frontend and backend (thus likey having no relevant screenshot)
- screenshot database would require maintenance, unless the screenshots (or their thumbnails) available on https://apps.kde.org/theproduct/ are used

Unfortunately these would drift out of sync very quickly, which is a problem we already have in the existing places where we show product screenshots (e.g. apps.kde.org, as you mention). Also, if we did it anyway--perhaps by re-using the ones on apps.kde.org--the length of that page would be even bigger due to the additional content on it. So it would be even more scary and intimidating!

We're tracking other fixes for this issue in Bug 340420 and Bug 238608.
