Re: Modern skin users - PLEASE VOTE:

I think Wide would be useful - sometimes when pictures are posted, if they're quite large I end up having to scroll sideways. I assume Wide would solve this.

Re: Modern skin users - PLEASE VOTE:

I'm running at 1600 resolution at the moment and only half of my screen real estate is used so I think Wide mode would be very useful.

Cheers,
TB

Re: Modern skin users - PLEASE VOTE:

I say wide because I have a widescreen laptop and AO, at the moment, only uses (fits?) 3/5ths of the screens width

Serious enough I hope ... BUT yes please

Re: Modern skin users - PLEASE VOTE:

Re: Modern skin users - PLEASE VOTE:

You are using it now - if you go to your profile, then options(the very last option), you can change it to Classic - you will see a difference then

Hey thanks for the very calm and respected comments, surely thats worth a rep click or two.

Surely the site can muster up more votes than this! This is important stuff, I dont want to blast another month+ away on a style no one really wants or needs, but the odds are looking good, there seriously needs to be like 250+ votes to get me working on a new skin.

Re: Modern skin users - PLEASE VOTE:

I haven't bothered to reply since I'm not an AO modern skin user, but since Ian seems to want more feedback...

A wide version of the modern skin would be better. I would use it over the skinny version, but I still prefer AO classic. It's easier on my eyes as I flip back and forth between real work and AO surfing.

Re: Modern skin users - PLEASE VOTE:

Hi Ian...difficult to tell...am so used to the modern since
about Jan 2004 that it would be a bit of a shock to change
once more...but then again...go for it in my opinion...

we still all see the same things...just some of them are wider and
some of them are taller

I remember joining using the classic if I remember
rightly...it doesn't hurt to test things

(oh...and there is the different colour scheme)

Re: Modern skin users - PLEASE VOTE:

Umm, I voted Modern, as I've no strong opinion.

Having read some commenst, Wide sounds appealing (peer pressure's a wonderful thing )

So in summary, as long as I continue to be entertained & informed, I'm happy
