What do you think is the ideal size of vignettes? As is said on LUGNET 8x8 is the standard, but it certainly isn't the only size.
Remember; your selection could shape future contests, perhaps even current ones, so vote now! (The descriptions for each size are from LUGNET, and while I like them, they are just names and are by no means "official".)

I'm going for the, as I have now learned, standard 8x8. You've got room to fit four minifigs and still can detail it enough. Second best 10x10, any larger would come is a model to me.

For a second choice, I like the bignette. Big a spacious, it could hold anything from a nice natural scene to an entire building while still having the space to satisfy the '(v)ignette' part of it's purpose.

But I am all for doing Vignettes in all 8x8 models like 8x8, 8x16 and 16x16.
I just like those different measurements.
However the all time favorite one is 8x8. I just like to see how much someone is able to fit in such a small area.

My second choice would be 10x10, for the same reasons as the 8x8, though a little larger.

Oh, there isn't a choice for that? Well, I guess that I'll have to choose the standard 8 x 8, then, as my favorite. I think it's the perfect size - it allows for lots of detail, and an easier build at the same time!
My second favorite would have to be

BTW, is it official that 16x16 is a bignette? I always though it was a midnette, and 32x32 was a bignette.

The results have been exactly what I wanted; clear preference (80%) for 8x8, and no clear preference for an alternative. Thanks to everyone who has voted so far.

I always find myself desperately wanting that slight extension to the 8x8 base, but not wanting a 10x10, which feels to spacious. Trust me, when it comes to building a vig, space is tight; it should appear so, whilst not appearing crowded, hey?
For reference, Vignette Bricks has some excellent (if slightly dated now) essays on various aspects of vigs, in the links on the right.
