Screen real estate

I am all for changes to improe things and the overall look of the sight is much better, some comments if I may.

We seem to have lost screen real estate, instead of the usable screen extending to the edges of the monitor, we now have a 80% window the forum displays in with 2 large blue borders either side. I know why this is generally done, but we now have 3 nested windows, the blue back one, the white inner, then the forum area, this nesting uses a lot of space up.

Then once we open up a post we, further loose real estate with the menu system on the right, whilst we can collapse it verticality, it steals one quarter/third of the pane already narrowed from the above.

The net result is the post we read is now in a window which uses less than half of the available monitor, can we get our screens back please

Ta

Hello mate.

The daft box down the right hand side can be completely removed in your CP.

Instructions are in here somewhere I think.

Yes I agree, the header and footer areas also unnecessarily use up a chunk of screen too.

You can switch off the righthand column at the very bottom of your User CP, Options page. It's a dopey idea that column because the most recent discussion topics are the uppermost topics in the New Posts area anyway.

Note to Bosses: Please reinstate the Top of Page button at the bottom of the page, it was put there by request some time ago. Ta.

There is no reason why the vBulletin part of the site could be fluid width and stretch across the screen.

your monitor is just too big - if you get a smaller monitor there is almost no blue
