Also, there seems to be a few versions of the pages:
Taking the latest page available in hi-res:
The full process is:
[900px × 1260px] JPEG 430kB
Click Hi-res book 2
Click Last page
Click on last image
[900px × 1260px] PNG 1160kB
Click on image
Click on expand (that might only be a firefox thing)
Raw Hi-res png file:
[1200px × 1680px] PNG 1630kB
If anything, the standard version is better than the middle version, though that could be a browser thing. It is probably interpolating the 1200px*1680 version.
While in "whine-mode"
, the ideal situation would be that the hi-res archive comes up on the main page instead of the standard version, assuming that the user is logged in.
Also, the current page is not even available as hi-res. The 2 versions should be released at the same time. If you don't then, it isn't possible to read new pages "fresh" in hi-res.
In fact, it might be worth it to place the hi-res versions of the pages on the site 24 hours earlier than for general users. However, then you have spoiler issues and it could fragment the community. Maybe the rule would be that discussions are limited to the subscriber only forum.
