    Moderator/webmaster: have you ever thought of fixing your min-width's on your site and NOT making it (nearly) 100% liquid?

    I often do half screen on my laptop and the middle section of MR is far too tiny while the margin's are huge.

    Just a suggestion: have a min. width on the middle section of maybe 200px? And maybe drop the min. width of your left and right margins down?



    Other than that, very great site

    So don't use a browser window that only takes up half your screen. Don't you think that would be a better solution than making a frivolous change on a site that gets hundreds of thousands of hits per day?

    I could use a browser that fills the screen, but I often split what I'm doing and then Chrome/FF in half.

    And I promise you the coding to fix that front page would seriously take 5-10 minutes, if that.

    All you would have to do is identify what the left and right margin's are called (probably .left & .right tag), and the main content (could be anything from body, content, etc.), and play w/ the pixels.

    It honestly just looks sloppy when it shrinks and collapses upon each other.



    EDIT: On top of that, the change wouldn't be noticed at all unless a web browser shrinks.
    Furthermore, I wonder what the site looks like in a 800x600 resolution
