    Default Narrow screen???

    Is it just me or did the screen width get narrower here?

    From what I see since the new banner photo on the top of the page changed, the whole page got skinny.

    Could it be reformatted to the old screen width?

    I feel like I'm in a tunnel browsing around now.

    Not a huge deal, just thought I'd ask.

    Looks like I came and noticed it right when you did...

    Apparently we're in for some changes. New picture at the top is a good change, though...

    yep...banner is a bit smaller, and the column resized to match. Don't much care for it, that's for sure.

    Can you tweak the properties of the banner picture to stretch it a bit?

    What, are you calling me a nobody?!

    I don't know, either. We have someone that does tech work for us, so I'm sure they made some changes. I'll send Mike a note about it and see if it was intentional or a byproduct of other changes.

    As for the pic, you folks mention that it's new, but I swear that's the same one I've been seeing. Maybe I'm going crazy?

    if you're crazy then you're in good company because I see the same picture that has been up for quite some time...basically since the color theme change..

    Almost 3 inches on each side. Much narrower than it use to be. Would be fine for an old monitor before the change to wide screen. Now its like watching an old movie on a widescreen tv. Came here to see what the change was for. I dont like it but can deal with it.

    Default now its wider

    I can only see parts of the page at a time.
    I would suggest it is about 2/3 rds in view at the zoom I usually run.
    The only way I can veiw the whole page is to control and scroll until the thing fits on the page.
    At this setting the font is about1/8" tall, hard on my old eyes.

    Default Narrow Screen

    I'm glad I'm now the only crazy one. Banner pic seems the same to me, but the screen did get narrower yesterday afternoon.

    I think the picture is a cached image thing - clear your cache and you should see it...nice picture!

    The narrow screen is odd, but like the colors I'm sure I could get used to it. I have more of a problem with how slow the main forum page loads now that's it's so long with all the sub forums and it takes a long time to scroll to the bottom of it...but no big deal...everybody needs something to whine about!

    Love the changes thus far but have to say the skinny forums suck.

    I have a wide screen monitor as most people do or will in the next 5 years.

    The current skinny view is accommodating only a few people that have small monitors with no resolution.

    my 2 cents

    The narrowing of the forum's screen is almost as bad as the narrowing of the forum's speech.
