**Background:** A few years the visual editor was for the first time enabled on various Wikipedia's including the Dutch Wikipedia. The Dutch community noticed a series of issues with the software and [[ https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Opinielokaal/Tijdelijk_uitschakelen_visuele_tekstverwerker | asked ]] to put the employment of the visual editor on hold for the Dutch Wikipedia.
After some years time, almost all the issues we noticed were solved, and that is related to the template largethumb, used on the Dutch Wikipedia to line out images straight under the infoboxes (that all have the same width). However, in the visual editor this causes multiple empty rows on top of the page that editors try to remove, and with this hiddenly remove images.
At Wikimania's we have been asking if also this issue can be solved, and going through all the options and difficulties, we learned that the easiest way to deal with this issue is to get the standard thumb size of 220px enlarged to 260px. This solves the issue of the largethumb (as it becomes obsolete), it also solves the issue that many users experience the default thumb size as too small.
**Recently:** We recently had some complaints of people noticing that editing is still hard without the visual editor and [[ https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:De_kroeg#Afgeschrikte_bewerker | it was concluded ]] that we need to enlarge the default thumb size of 220px with 40px. When this is implemented, the community will discuss how the visual editor can be implemented.
So our request: please enlarge the default thumb size to 260px on the Dutch Wikipedia.
