    Large widescreen monitors. For the odd occasion that someone actually bothers to write more than a single sentence on the same line.

    Ideally, you'd have a mix of both. Scale for resolutions above the minimum (1024x), 100% for resolution below it.

    Oh come on codex, are you going to keep the glow in the links?
    If it's possible it should be removed, I think everybody would agree that looks like shit.

    When I pick the fluid option the fucking text box stretches so far I have to turn my head to read when somebody posts more than a one-liner. While Codexers are known for their retarded one-liners, of course, occasionally I want to read a nice wall of text, too. And for that to happen I need to have nice, comfy paragraphs, not a single line that stretches out along the sides of my 24" Samsung.

    Why the new Codex design sucks:
    1. The design is ugly compared to the old one. The previous had a nice background and it was easy to read. Now we have white background in the "standard" design which is too fucking bright and the Temp Codex design is just horrible, especially since all the text is restricted to the middle of the screen (seriously wtf).
    2. Avatars need to be EXACTLY ONE SIZE and they're all square. If people have no avatar, there's a question mark displayed, which is annoying. User titles aren't in the "Codex font" either and don't have colors, so it's harder to spot newfags.
    3. You have to hover over a thread title to see how many pages it has, before you could see them automatically.

    So the Codex is actually being officially reopened?

    I'd prefer to keep the current front page up and continue the Codex as a secret society.

    Just FYI - as long as the front page says we're not here, it means anything / everything else is still pretty much "under construction" and likely to change drastically at any time.

    And the fact we're still in third place for internets is abysmal. I should shut the whole place down until we win all the internets. There are 200 people online right now. What is this? We should easily have broken 10k internets in a day - clearly a lot of the guests are holding out.

    Looks great. Now make all the boxes square, get rid of the faggy link-buttons, turn off all the pop-up shit, disable quick posting, get rid of the page-hide-secret crap, put the names and titles back over the avatars, disable smileys in the post-boxes and replace them with :commands: and reintroduce multi-quote. Oh, and it is "Quote", not "Reply".

    Well naturally. They don't even know how to pull out of their mothers before they shoot.

    The message is not offensive enough. Something like "Have you given internets today "Enter your name here"? Why not? Are you gay? Bla bla bla" should work. And some really aggressive colour is mandatory (warm reddish/ acidic).

    Blocked "internetometer.com" with RequestPolicy.

    I have this:
    But I rather read down than from the far left to the far right. The browser's always windowed anyway. Fixed width was just a little too wide to be comfortable. Fluid adapts to any width I like. I still don't see any disadvantages...

    Fluid looks much better indeed. Should be Codex's default.

    What the... I know that whole sentence reading can be trained but either your field of vision is that of a chameleon or your browser window has already been shrank to a size where fixed width doesn't matter anyway (unless it doesn't scale to smaller sizes).

    Try maximizing your browser window on >= 24" widescreen monitors and find a topic post which contains several paragraphs worth of text (most of Black Cat's game discussions should be suitable). Suddenly you have single text lines which are longer than your forearm which is simply tedious to read as you have to move your head/eyes at an increased rate plus it becomes harder to find the next line of text if you lost sight of the beginning. Somehow I can't persuade my eyes to work like a type writer (first move one line down, then follow the text to the start of the line).

    Since the forum software now caters to both preferences there's really little reason to bitch though.

    DarkUnderlord, 10 years from now:

    On a side note, I give the Codex an internet whenever I change my IP, which happens about once a week. Plus, I gave internets at work using both our networks over there, and through 3 of my friends's computers. Thinking about it, I've probably given the Codex around 50 internets so far this year.

    By the way, isn't this one Codex 3.0? I knew the Disco Inferno and the Non-Scalling one, we had others before?

    Some of the avatars look pretty bad because they are much bigger now.

    Muad'Dib has looked better
