Would you prefer if this board is set to a maximum width, for example 950 pixels?

Does the board get stretched too much at higher resolutions?

Post by admin » Sun 30 Sep 2007 22:56

Hello members,

I would like to know your opinion about the following:

Do you think this board gets stretched too much horizontally at higher screen resolutions, say wider than 1024 pixels?
Would you prefer if this board is set to a maximum width, for example 950 pixels?

Note: as of Oct. 30, 2007, this board has been set to a maximum width of 850 pixels. So it isn't strechted horizontally anymore.
If you want to see how it looked like before, take a look here: http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/

I don't know how to answer because I don't know what I'm looking at now.

The font size is a bit larger than most boards but that is just fine for my old eyes.

I decided to give the board a maximum width of 850px. I think it looks much better now and is easier to read at higher screen resolutions.
