Not what I'm talking about. All that does is compress the individual letters, not decrease the amount of space the site can use for text.

How about provide advertisements.

How about French fries. Under the boardwalk, down by the sea. Of course.

Yes, I could... but it would be nice if the site did that for me.  :spin:

The problem is, every user is going to have a different opinion of what the ideal width of reading the forum is. Someone might think it's 600px, some might think it's 1000px, some (like me) might have no problem with the text going the full width of the screen and think having a huge margin on the right side of the screen is a waste of screen space. If this is enforced through CSS, then we are taking the choice away from the user and not letting them decide for themselves.

It is much better for everyone involved to just have the theme fill 100% of the browser window, and then if others find the lines of text are too long, resize the browser window to what they find most comfortable.

This ain't Apple. We're not in the habit of choosing your preferences for you.

I don't exactly agree, but thanks for giving an explanation anyways.
