Steve gets a Kidney but I don't even get a tag.
Why is the central box of forum threads so narrow? It used to stretch all the way to the edges.


Please fix

Yeah, so much wasted space. I also hate how "new posts" are now under squeezed under "Whats new" when there is a ton of empty space on the upper panels. How exactly does this help even phone users? This is compacted like its made for 4:3 monitors.

I would also prefer, if it used the whole screen like before. What is the idea behind these fixed width sites anyway? Aren't sites supposed to be reponsive and adjust themselves to the size of the viewer's screen? Still, even big sites like Github just ignore almost 50% of the screen size on big monitors. I don't understand this web development trend at all

Lots of empty space on my glorious 16:10 screen. There should be a button to make the forum use the whole screen (that feature exists, I've seen it on other XenForo forums).

The site is fucking broken on mobile, funnily enough. The top banner thing with your avatar and notification thing and so on takes up almost half the fucking screen.

Yes, I tried on my phone as well and it was something my ex-wife would have described as 'shocking shit'.
