In my opinion going back to 800 is a step back now when everybody starts dumping old 15' and even 17' screens - it's just not an improvement.
Sorry guys, I know you're working hard for this site but I had to say it!

of course, instead of displaying your browser window full-screen, you could also have your browser fill half the screen and use the other half for other applications - that's what I usually do on my 1680x1050 ;-)

But as I said, we'll make the layout more fluid so you'll have the choice.

MKopack, I'll see what I can do, OK. May take a while, busy and all. Stefaan, I'll try to fix the subline as well, OK? Less extended font type but greater size (higher but less wide).

Thanks for realizing the new styled´s logo´s subline problem! But what I forgot in my last reply is the following: Very, very thanks to Lieven and Stefaan for maintaining this great website - world-wide the number one online source for the Viper. Also thanks to all moderators, and - last but not least - to the website designer Peter van Stigt! Well done! Since I joined the forum late October last year, I must say again: That´s my second home!

Great site guys.

I just returned from vacation and this was a great suprise.

2 Thumbs up.

On the sizing issue; can't you just alter most of the tables in the layout to %?

If not there you can use java to write a script that detects the viewer's resolution and forwards them to a webpage (have alternate sites differantly sized). The downside is, I believe this doesn't account for resized windows so users can only view at a single size. I seem to remember having to use this on a project way back.

Love the new look. It looks awesome in 1280x768 wide screen (even if it doesn't fill the screen). :)

The new site look is great! Very clean and simple to use, less cluttered. Well done team!

The old style was brilliant, and so is the new one. I must complain about one thing though - I understand the importance of ads but I feel the banner at the top kills the flow of the page a great deal. It would be nice if it could be moved to somewhere less intrusive. Perhaps in the actual header between and the wonderful work Peter did.

I think the same, KickURanus! The advertise banner really kills the site header because it have about the same height and nearly the same width. But I also knew, such payed banners should be placed good visible either on the top or at right. For the webmasters and the webdesigner that´s a fu___ compromise.

About the website resolution,

I understand you want to let the 800x600 guys to visit the site too but is there a possibility to also make an 1024x768 website? So that you can select the preferred resolution for the site and then you have it filling your complete monitor.

What about that?

Well, the overall look is great, but I have to agree with some of the other members. I work on a 1200x800 and it appears very busy and all crammed together in a small space... My websites are also smaller then 800px, but centered. I think when you center the whole think it will already look a bit better...

Great site, totally LOVE it :D
One question: can you add some print out options for the topics?

Further impression, just realized: The "six" in the new logo looks more as a "G" (for You understand?

JJ, I understand. However, not because I designed it but because I'm convinced that the majority of the viewers will read a '6' instead of a 'G' despite the opening in the mark itself, I tend to disagree. But, let's ask them...
