Warning My gripes

I like;
  • the colouring
  • the new features
  • the layout (almost)
  • the image adding

But I am not a fan of the space between the edges of the main body.

I tend to agree with Toronto when he says there is too much wasted space, but not in such an extreme way

IMHO, the main body would be better spread out from the left all the way across my window. I know this was to satisfy people using different screen resolutions, but I would have thought the vast majority of people who use this forum would be running 1024x768, as I am.

Other than that, I like it!

Idea fuel to the fire, boys!

So, you mean you have an even bigger gap between the main body and the edge of the window?

Come on now, keep up!

I did say the majority of people, not all!

Re: fuel to the fire, boys!

I think it keeps the gap constant matey. Oh, wait a sec. No it doesn't.
I have mine in a window, so people can't see what I'm doing as well
I just maximised it, and you're right. Huge gaps.
Have to say though, the way I use it, ina window at work, and 1024xwhatever at home, there's not a great deal of wastage, and since I have a scroll mouse in both places, it doesn't bother me at all.
Having used one, I don't think I could cope with going back to a mouse with no scroll button.

"surfing" the web without a wheel mouse is a pain!

Re: fuel to the fire, boys!

I'm using 1024x768 which is correct.
Everyone else is being pedantic.

just to be pedantic, I'm using 1600 x 1200, and the posts use less than half the width of the screen. Very wastefull.
