    This new site format stinks. How can I get ahold of the admin?

    My inquiry isn’t about any advertising, its about the recent change in the forum software’s size and constrained viewing size.

    Just being comprehensive. 

    The advertisers probably have the direct phone number for the webmaster.

    It looks like it was resized for the iPad. Apple fans should be thrilled.

    And yet not this Mac user, Brad.

    Send a message to Adam Christianson. He is the web guy. I’ve brought it up but have had not much of a response.

    Is there an alternative to the standard web view?

    Flat mode post reading rather than threaded?

    Is there alternative reader software, like there is for vbulletin (Tapatalk, et al)?

    I have to agree with Eric. the new format is not very desirable.

    That’s pretty sad.  :-(

    Momentarily this topic will be moved to the admin forum for follow-up.

    Hi all—Intruder alerted us to this thread. To be clear, the only major change that was made in recent history was to go from a variable-width site to a fixed-width site. This was done not for iPad users (they’ve been fine since day 1 because of how well the viewport parameter works), it was done because of Lion’s upcoming full-screen mode in Safari. TMO simply doesn’t work in full-screen mode on a 23” screen and it was finally time to fix the width of the site like every other site that’s out there. wink

    That said, our goal is to make this work *better* for you all, not worse. Clearly that’s not the case for at least a few of you (possibly more?), and we’re happy to engage and work together to see what the problem is and what we can fix.

    We’re here, and I’d love to hear more about what it is that you don’t like.

    I hadn’t noticed other than the page background being gray now… when did this change occur? smile

    I have not noticed any issues in the past week or so on either a Mac or iPad. We were seeing “variable-width” problems fairly recently, but those seem to have gone away. At least I’m not seeing them anymore.

    If some users have a very long username it can (or did in some cases) push the contents of their post and subsequent posters posts beyond the edge and underneath the advertisements on the right side. Making parts of the contents unreadable.

    This issue occasionally occurs for me also.

    The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it. The process by which banks create money is so simple the mind is repelled.
