I personally find it quite silly that everyone is not forced to make the small version since this is what we're told the majority of the people on CC use.
Really? I hate the small versions. I prefer the clarity of using a full-sized map, and always considered the small maps to be scaled-down thumbnail versions for people with tiny screens. Saved screen space in exchange for loss of detail and aesthetics.
I believe the last time we had the stats shared - only 10% of users had the Large map set as default...
Of course that doesn't count the people that don't have it set to default and select it each time!!
But I can't imagine that is 40% of people?!
Note - this is a similar reason as to why we aren't allowed to use larger maps etc.
