I have 1152 x 864, so it's not a problem for me...Who uses 800 x 600 anyway.

im using 1280x1024 and i think the site should be made wider, probably be a huge hassle changing everything though

If we are going to consider expanding to 1024, I want to be sure we aren't screwing over a lot of people.

Sure, care about people that are still using lower resolutions, but what about us that don't have a high speed internet connection?

I'm on 1152*864 and NG works fine. I'm not annoyed with the background on the edges. I like it. Gives character.

And and by the way, on the BBS this should provide larger signature areas. I propose the idea of making the signature picture restrictions a bit longer, and if possible, and bit taller. Just a thought from us restricted sig artists.

I agree.
450*100 or so would be nice.

I'm using 800 x 600. Perhaps there can be an option to switch between two versions somehow? Perhaps the ones with lower resolutions can go to one link, and the ones with a higher resolutions can go to the other link?

Hi, I'm on 800*600, I feel it's easier to use/see.

Can't you use % values so the tables or div areas scale up/down depending on resolution?

Theres no way I could work on 800 by 600. Maybe its because of my 21" monitor , when i put it on 800 by 600 the level icons are more or less the size of real fists! I'm used to having massive columns on either side of the webpage (perfect for skyscraper porn ads as Wade said)
I use 1600 by 1200, I could bump it up to 2048 by 1536 but everything is way to small.

I use 800x600, and I think it works best for most sites, most of them fit perfectly.

My impression is that alot of people have the lower 800 x 600 resolution but not alot of people care to reply. Apathy is a constant among average net users as well. The only reason other people use the higher resolution is that it comes standard with most computer monitors nowadays, especially with all the major brand computers such as DELL.
PLEASE keep the lower resolution, so we don't hvave to scroll back and forth and so we can read the text instead of having to squint. Keep the lower res, and save the apathetic vote.

Maybe a way to change in your profile wether you want 800*600 or 1024*768?
I'm using 1024x768 though. I think 800x600 is stupid, and if 800x600 people did a small effort they'd get used used to 1024x768 in a few days.

For everyone who uses windows switching should not be hard. Just go to your desktop and right click on it, go down to properties and over to the settings tab, you should see a bar that says screen resolution from less "800x600 to more on mine it only goes to 1024 x 768 but I have a really old monitor.
