Did the page layout just get changed?

The information runs full width, with the post underneath it also full width.

Yes. And IMO it Bites it!

Harri - please, I don't know about others, but this new format squeezes my pages and post windows. It's very constricting. My vote goes for taking that Mauriat ad off of the left side of the forum page and putting it back at the top where, I believe, it was.

Big difference I notice is the P. Mauriat ad on the left.

...and your avatar is no longer on the left side with the post window to its right. IMO even more wasted space than before.

edited shortly thereafter: Whoah, hey. Now they're back on the left side, LOL. A work in progress, as the saying goes I suppose.

Wow, this doesn't make reading any better, Seems very unpleasant to the eyes (even with the widescreen I have). The big headers above each post make it look a bit messy.

Simple solution, guys. Buy the left banner space as soon as it's available, then tell Harry you don't want a banner there, but he can keep the money. If the left banner provides funds needed to keep SOTW alive, I have no problem with it. It's normal for people to dislike change, but we soon become accustomed to new formats.

And welcome back, Kessler.

Do I hear any bids? :)

I thought that banner would need more horizontal space.
At any rate, I change it back the previous lay-out, and it look now reasonable to my eye. The users with a 640x800 screen may complain, though.

The reason for the banner ad: retread formulated pretty well above.

I wouldn't mind it so much on the right.

I think it would be better on the right. As I scroll down, It's white space anyway.

....and we're much more likely to accidently click it if it were near the scroll bar...;)

Maybe Haku has got a point there (only this time haku, only this time :D ). It will let the posts start at the full left which maybe gives a more naturel feel for reading.

Believe me, this thread is not a poll. :!:
It's nice seeing Kessler back too!

What if all the banners where at the top moving the forum page slightly downward? Maybe even sizing the banners a bit larger.

Just a thought.....

Your talents may not be fully utilized in education. You'd make onehellofa ad man...inventive and slightly devious.
