Is anyone else experiencing the same thing I am? When I go to the Member List, the page is so wide that I have to scroll left and right to see everything. I don't see anything that would explain why it's so wide, such as a too wide image as sometimes happens on threads. I have my resolution set pretty high on my display, so that's not the problem. All other areas of SOTW are fine. In the overall scheme of things, it's not a major problem, it's more of an annoyance than anything.

Yes. Furthermore, from time to time, other threads have the same problem (assuming this is a problem, but it's certainly an irritation). Randomly, and for reasons unfathomable to me, now and then a thead is far too wide to fit properly on my screen, and I have to scroll over to follow someone's post. Sometimes this even happens in the middle of a thread: page one and two are fine, then page three is too wide. We seem to have no control over the parameters of the view. This is not a huge big deal and happens seldom, but nevertheless it does happen.

I wonder if there's a maximum number of people you can ignore?

Simple: too many colums to fit in a reasonable-sized display. It's always been like that, since we moved to this service.
The column count reduced to a bare minimum:

User Name ....... Find Posts ....... Join Date ....... Posts ....... Last Visit

From there you can get more information on the user or retrieve his/her posted messages.

Also, members who never posted are excluded from the list. Let me know if you want them back and why.

Wide posts

This happens when people post long URLs e.g. eBay listings like this:
http://www.saxontheweb.net/Rock_n_Roll/thumbnails/thumb_SamButera.jpg

What they should do instead:
PHP:
[URL="http://www.saxontheweb.net/Rock_n_Roll/thumbnails/thumb_SamButera.jpg"]Sam Butera[/URL]
producing following which does not widen the thread:
Sam Butera
