    The main forum area is about 660 pixels wide? Why? What age do we live in, full hd or 1024x768?
    This is ridiculous.

    Simply put:
    • Most sites use this size as not everybody has a widescreen monitor
    • Readability. On post level most people prefer to read text in a small block instead of full screen
    • Forum design matches the new homepage
    • We have a advertisers that need visibility
    • and most important we are in the middle a server migration where we will re-launch later this week on a very powerful platform with our new look.
    But glad that all the sleepless nights are appreciated :thumbsup:

    Bram, without your sleepless nights there would be no RD... a world without RD will be a very dull and boring world.
