Recently, animuson was dissatisfied with his clock. Therefore, one of our illustrious members sought out an Amazon link to a clock that would solve all of animuson's needs. And this happened:

It's huge. Like, screen-shatteringly huge. It even prompted this message:

Why are Amazon one-boxes so huge? Someone write up a feature request to decrease their size. Sheesh. - animuson

... and this one:

why are amazon products one boxed in the first place? - jmac

Therefore, we should decrease the size of these helpful thingys. Please?

    @Szymon It's a feature within the chat rooms. You can paste a URL into a chat message and depending on the URL, a one-box preview of the URL will appear so you don't have to click out to the link to read the content. We have these for Amazon, Twitter, Trello, and a few other URLs. – Hynes Jan 10 '14 at 15:35
  • @Hynes this also happens now with twitter onebox, which renders the onebox useless, nobody wants to see such a huge thing. Any chance to look into it? – Shadow Wizard Jun 19 '18 at 11:01
  • @ShadowWizard Oh wow… well that seems quite… large. I'll pass this along to the team to see what can be done about it. – Hynes Jun 21 '18 at 18:33
