not sure if it will work on your browser or not, but hold down your ctrl key and turn your mouse wheel to resize the web page.

uuuuuuuuuuuuuugly. it did work, running Mozilla, but it's all pixilated now. thanks, man, at least, I do not have to enjoy huge grey blank fields on either side of the forum.

oh, to make sure - running highest resolution possible on HD monitor, so it's no me.

Looks good to me. I'll bet your one of those who set a foot from your monitor and never adjusted your fonts or zoom.

A DIY Administrator has explained the difference in size:
Prior to the relaunch the forum was a different width (flexible) than the rest of the site. With the redesign we set the width to 1,000 pixels. The goal is to make sure that it fits on the majority of screens without having a horizontal scroll bar. Unfortunately we have to design to the lowest common denominator.

Why? Was it broke? Uh-oh, I smell job security's ugly head rising from the ashes. Hard to believe, but true.
And why delete the last poster's name under the most recent post? That's the only way you could tell if the post had progressed further without opening up the entire thread.

yes, indeed. I am using older laptop right now with 1280 by 800 pixles resolution, and it's fine, only 1.5 inch gray blank spaces on either side of the reading pan. but on wide screen quality displays, that gray area is much much larger.
no sweat. it's ok, still a decent forum.
