Small plea regarding the forum
« on: October 14, 2009, 04:59 »

Dear Kornel. I know this is a hard and busy time both with your PC dying and last DoomRL betas going on before the release, but I have a thing to ask:

Could you please, please, please remove the fixed forum width that came with forum upgrade/new theme? It's annoying even on my 1280 screen width (partly because I have right part of the screen taken by tabs), and I suspect that people with non-widescreen monitors aren't too happy about it either.

Thank you.

Malek, what browser are you using?

Also, I'm afraid that there might be no easy fix for this...

The problem is that due to various tab-overload issues I decided to use an addon that moves my tabs to the side (rather than top) and that eats a chunk of my space

Firefox...

And isn't that something that is set in theme? (in other words it should be edditable... I hope >_>)

True, you could probably say that... BUT!

1) Not everyone has widescreen yet :P

2) "Fixed width" is generally a bad idea (with exception of situations where you have that absolutly avesome banner and want everything aligned perfectly with it ;) )

This is the truth!

I've got a 1600*1200 screen and the good old 2.0.0.20 Firefox and no problems with the forum width.

Meh, if people take PNG/JPG/GIF/BMP/DOX screenies it is a problem. Then again,

WE HAVE F9 PEOPLE LEARN TO USE IT!

(This is primarily directed to the people in the screenshots thread that insist on using images)
