[POLL] Site width

Post by stefanol »

Hi ho.

We have talked with yankees recently about the way the site looks. Right now, the site width is 760px. With relatively small effort, we may change it to 960px. According to the recent statistics, amount of people using resolution smaller than 1024x768 is extremely small (non existant, I'd say). Hence the idea, to make it wider.

What do we get from this?

-More place for interface improvements
-Less scrolling
-Making use of the place available on the sides.

Discuss, or not, your choice. I need your vote though, for, or against such transition. If it's against, I'd be curious to hear the reason behind it, though.

Click on images before to see some of the new looks (they look pretty similiar, it's only 200 pixels):

Over time, more pages may benefit from the additional space.

I like it ;D

But also have a question ^^
If it's going to be wider, do we also need to scroll to the left and right ?
I think that that would be more annoying then how it is now

That depends on your screen resolution. Statistically, less than 1% of users have a resolution lower than 1024x768 (of which I doubt anyone play any browser games). If you have resolution bigger or equal to 1024x768, you are safe.

[list]I think increasing the width would be a good idea, since [for most users on the site] there's a lot of wasted space on the sides. Not that there's necessarily anything wrong with the width right now, but less scrolling is always a good thing.[/list]

I don't like more than 4 VAs in a row, but that's because I'm not used to more. I'd just have to get used to it and then I'll like it again. XD

Voting yes, though I feel for the people that use their phones and more on this site.
Would a mobile version be possible for them? Would there even be enough interest?

inuyashagirl521, it always is possible to browse sites on your mobile, no matter how wide they are. it may be a little troublesome with getting used to it at the start, but after week, two it should be alright. :)

More space, yes,
although I really prefer the four eggs/ Pokémon a row in the GTS and boxes especially, because we can adopt 12/20 eggs and it's nicer to look at!
Other than that, sure, more space!
