A suggestion or request if I may?
I may be in the minority on this and I do like the site here but the overall look of the forum makes me almost feel claustrophobic. I think the forums need to be widened if it's possible because the already smaller than average width for reading posts is being shrunk by the options bar on the left hand side.
Aslo people with big sigs, and different sized avatars makes each users post size looks very different and isn't uniformed, allowing where the actual post starts to be moved around on the page. (See pic below for example, look at where the post starts in tadz post as compared to TheBeagle.)
It may just be me because I like things to look simple, neat and have some base structure....or I could just be anal and have a mental problem.
Certainly I'm somewhat new considering I haven't posted a lot here but I've browsed the site for years and have always kinda felt the same way even with the older looking site. Anyway no matter what you do it's a nice site to have for all of us fans to come together.
Also I'm not asking for max sig or avatar sizes to be reduced as I actually like the options to have those things large....well maybe not so much sigs. Just that the box size of everyones posts to look uniform as if they have the max size img already there even if they don't. That plus the widening of the site would help in making everything not look so smashed together.
