I was thinking: "How can I explain people what's on my screenshots?"

It wont be easy to say to people - you must jump obstacle (look to the right), so I thought how about putting few words under each screenshot (just like mobygames do)!

You can't imagine the amount of times I thought up a line as caption of a screenshot when I took it. The horror you'll get afterwards... "Hey, a German tourist!" when you see the genie in Hugo 1

It's a good idea, but it's more work for the updater. If you have ten screenshots, say, that's a lot of cutting and pasting. And Kosta would have to redesign the whole uploading thing. At the moment the game page is set out in template format.

The problem with that is that half the folk send in screenshots that are too big and have to be resized. When this happens, the comments would also shrink and become slightly distorted and unreadable.

Omuletzu's suggestion is the best one so far... it could be done rather easy with tooltips, but how many people would actually notice that?

Above the screenshots a line saying something like "hold your mouse over the pics to see comments" could be added.Also reducing the time needed for the tooltip to appear would do the trick(i'm thinking like 1 sec) k:
