Bug Description

Lots of scopes are just returning ‘empty document’ placeholder images in the results. We need to find a image for every result. If there is not any image that can be used e.g. in the case of “noodls” scope, we will need to generate an image to use in the preview. No scopes should return an ‘empty document’ placeholder.

The list of offending scopes:
Unity Audacious Scope
Unity Chromium Bookmarks Scope
Unity Clementine Scope
Unity Colourlovers Scope
Unity Devhelp Scope
Unity Deviantart Scope
Unity Evolution Calendar Scope
Unity Firefox Bookmarks Scope
Unity Gallica Scope
Unity Github Scope
Unity Google News Scope
Unity Gourmet Scope
Unity Guayadeque Scope
Unity IMDb Scope
Unity Launchpad Scope
Unity Manpages Scope
Unity Musique Scope
Unity OpenClipArt Scope
Unity SSH search Scope
Unity Tomboy Scope
Unity VirtualBox Scope
Unity Wikipedia Scope
Unity Yahoo Stock Scope
Unity Yelp Scope
Unity Zotero Scope
Unity gMusicBrowser Scope

Server scopes status: all done

The server scopes we have are: amazon, ddg_related, dictionary, skimlinks, u1ms, wikipedia.

Some of them never return an image for the result (by design, eg: the dictionary), others may return one if the searched term have it (eg: the wikipedia).

In any case, we need to get images to *always* comply with this requeriment.

Description in the previews is missing for the manpages scope. Reverting.

Github could also more information, either pulling some data from the README (similarly to what github is doing) or at least showing a few latest revisions in the tree.

Would it be possible to add more information to the Yahoo finance results as well?

The IMDB scope isn't providing enough information, doesn't have proper official API, so we suggest to remove it completely.

Would it be possible to add a few more paragraphs for the wikipedia scope? (currently it seems to add just the first one to the preview)

+1 on IMDb removal.

wikipedia and dictionary now fallback to using file:// urls to service-wordnik.svg and service-wikipedia.svg for icon_hint in results

Marking this bug as fixed, because most of the scopes do provide both result and preview images. If there's something still missing, please open a new bug against the affected scope.
