As a manufacturer I would like to have some advice on image usage on this page. It is in my interest to use multiple pictures, but on the other hand I don't want to spam this wiki. IMHO the description of the SBC case in this revision is a nice middle ground. Three expandable pictures aligned in one row should be enough to dispay the case, while at the same time the page can be kept consistent and clean. Can we agree on that as a guideline? --Arbofaktur 15:54, 30 August 2012 (UTC)


It would be nice if, when adding a case here, at least one of the following were included

- If its a make-it-yourself-from-common-stuff case, the instructions (or a link thereto)

- If its a retail/commercially produced case, a link to the vendor site.

Merely noting that some case might exist, without providing any information on how to get (or make) it, seems rather useless. If there IS no way to get one, or make one, then why bother listing it here?

For instance the "LCD Monitor Mount" describes a case, but includes absolutely no information on how to acquire or make this device, no idea on who makes it, or might make it, nothing.
