    I don't really see what the point in this is? Alternative forums to the perfectly working forums we have here... Doesn't really make any sense at all.
    I guess it might serve as a hub if there were any actually active projects (where it's immediately feasible to get to a complete state, so ruling out TSO-SE) despite this one.

    EDIT: We discussed things in private, the site is like tsomania but obviously for our newer incarnations. The blog part of the site is really cool, and the forums will be used for multilanguage community building (something we might do in the future ourselves)

    I'm really fed up of websites not having a wide-screen mode; is it difficult to change "1024px" to "100%"? Please. Implement a wide-screen mode.

    I think it looks fine this way, main container is centered. You don't have to have all of your screen filled with content, most websites have fixed width.

    Yeah, and I hate it. It means that not all the space is filled, so it's a waste of space! You may as well have something there. I have wide-screen fixes for all the websites I visit, apart from YouTube because it actually suits the style. That includes GitHub, here, NSOMania, a number of forums, etc. Google does it right, and so does Mega; fill the screen with content otherwise there's no point in having a triple wide-screen monitor setup. Centered content where there's a border of ~30%+ is extremely lazy. And yes, I was inspired by Flawless Widescreen because it means I can actually utilize all of my 3 screens instead of having one screen where the content is basically portrait. It's ridiculous!

    1. It's easier to focus on the content when the area is not that wide. Ever read a book? Why books ain't in landscape mode? :D
    2. If you have such big screen (or three screens, whatever), why do you fill the whole space with a browser, instead of, for example - multitasking? You'd rather have your post fit in one line across three screens? GOOD LUCK FOCUSING ON THE CONTENT
    3. Which brings us to messed up, unreadable layouts, yeah!

    Btw. the whole widescreen thing idea is ridiculous for anything else than movies anyway.

    I have 3 screens. Usually I play racing games (note the fucking name) and that's why I bought the monitors. When I'm using a browser I fill one screen with the browser and leave the rest because it's easier to read, but if it's squashed in the middle it's extremely frustrating. I've been using wide-screen mods for a while now and I find it easier to focus on because it fills the entire monitor instead of a ~1024x1080 area in the middle of the screen.

    I anti-demand it.

    Why?

    Cause you have to move your head left and right while reading something similar to being at a cinema and watching a movie at the front row.
    I anti-demand it as well.

    Not if you have a reasonably-sized screen and you're sat at a reasonable distance, in which case you should be able to see the entire screen without moving your head. Otherwise, I suggest you rethink your ergonomics, setup, and position.

    I suggest you rethink your idea, and basically 90% of your ideas. :D

    It's more an aesthetic problem for me. I find paragraphs to be harder to read and worse to glance at when 200 words fit on one line, compared to word wrapping breaking things up into multiple lines which are easier to keep track of. This specifically becomes a problem when you glance away then towards content, it's much harder to find your place with a full width layout because there are less obvious "landmarks" of your previous position. This feeling is most likely due to limited human short term memory (though i'm definitely not an expert in this field), and refinding places by line in most other media being so common. You wouldn't ever see a magazine page not split into small, managable columns, right? That's like taboo.

    Plus, all your fave sites and more still use fixed width layouts, so it's something most people are comfortable with by default.

    Bending over backwards just to read a two paragraph article is not ergonomic.

    I sit about half a metre away from my PC like any normal person would, and I can read articles just fine. If you're sitting closer than that, you're an idiot and you probably look like one.
