No this is too wide. Even old layout wasn't this wide. I have a really wide screen so its very bad. Please have it at like 80% width instead of before which was like 60% but now its 100%. Keep it at 80% please.
The fundamental question is, will this new forum be as effective as a forum like the previous edition was? And It will be, even more so? But until the smiley faces regain their old school charm, it's going to be hard to verify that I think the new forum will be more effective.
I remember the complete chaos when the mods changed to the previous one. Wow there was so much complaint at first (including me), but I got used to it just like everyone. I just hope they don't make it look like Facebook. Cause right now we are heading in that direction. There is already some resemblance.
