    I think that is confusing, when one are looking at the replies in a thread. Instead of placing the information about a user above (or is it below?) the reply, could you place it on the right side of the post?

    The user information is above the post, and I doubt it will ever move to the right, since this is a custom modded BB and would require serious changes to the forum. I in fact like it the way it is, it's easier to find out about the person, the only bad thing is it makes the page scroll a lot more.

    I believe vB 3 also has this way as a default. It just takes some time to get used to it, that's all.

    I like it like this, I think it makes the board look more individual. At the moment anyway.

    All three of the posters make valid points. No, I have no plans to change as not only would it be very difficult, but it would squish the post text to an even smaller width. Who knows what will happen should WDF v4 arrive.

    Wouldn't mind seeing it being wider on 1024x768.

    I have to disagree with all of you, including you webmasterforumgodturtleof this site!

    One of the most appealing features of this site (apart from it beeing popular) is that it has a NARROW layout. (also a 1024 x 768 man)
    That, for me at least, make it very easily readable. :classic:

    Having all user information condensed around the username, avtar, onlinestatus, etc...
    makes it even more easily navigatable!

    Maybe it's only me, but beeing used to this layout, I think every other boards layout is confusing!

    Now than I regularly run on 1400x1050 (LCD Screen) I have issues with non-static sites (liquid). Text tends to stretch so much that you've got entire paragraphs on one line.

    Never seen a novel printed on 8.5x11 paper (per page)... I like it small.

    I just switched my monitor (which isn't widescreen, mind you) from 1280x1024 to 1600x1024 and scaled it so it's letterbox. Going to try it out for a few days. I must say that it's...interesting. I reset IE's size to a 4:3 size instead of maximizing as usual because sites look pretty bad at widescreen/very high resolutions.
