There's something that has bothered me for a while, but it took me up to now to figure out what causes it. My standard setup for surfing consists of two browser windows next to each other on a 21" screen. Most decent web sites display fine in such a portrait format window, sometimes it even has the added benefit that the ad columns at the right margin become invisible. Now, while I generally count WMW to the decent web sites (very much so!), something changes when I'm logged in.

An incredible amount of scientific research has demonstrated that the problem is with the "Message Thread Options" link bar at the bottom of the screen. When I'm logged in, it starts to grow more links, all of which are housed in <td> fields with the "nowrap" attribute. This forces the page to an unnecessarily large horizontal size. As a result, I have to scroll horizontally when I want to see all the text as well as who wrote it. Should be fairly simple to fix without jeopardizing the clean layout, right?

Thanks for making this experience even more pleasurable! :)

Thanks, you are the first to mention that. I also have a large monitor, but surf max screen width most of the time.

Please, hang tough about it, as there are some new things that will address the issue under devlopment that are currently on a eyes-only need to know basis ;-) Is that vague enough? lol eg: we're on it, and you will like it.
