    On the main forum page (forums.macrumors.com), the thread titles are cut too short. In most cases, it's not long enough to see what the thread is about. Most threads are listed like "I have a problem with my..." or "Which do you think is the best..." so you can't see what the thread is actually about until you click on it or view the forum list. It would be much better if crop length was doubled or at least increased by 10 characters.

    I'm still on dialup so it's a bit painful to click on a thread which turns out to be completely different from what I was expecting.

    Have you tried hovering your cursor over the link?

    Surprisingly, I haven't. My popup (on Amiga browser) is set for a fairly long delay so I didn't notice it before.

    OK, thanks. That solves that little problem. :)

    I agree that the thread/post column is a little too skinny. And it doesn't seem to get wider if you make your screen wider. :(

    Yeah the CSS doesn't seem to handle that.
