Would it be possible to allow the reading of posts to be as wide as the pre-view of posts? You know, the width of the read-able field when pre-viewing a post before submitting it?

This would make reading the forums much easier for me. Currently the blank space beneath the player's picture/info which is carried all the way down the post is wasted space on an already very narrow forum frame. Can a word-wrap element be inserted so that beneath the player image/info the text display defaults to the width of the pre-view-posting width?

Not sure what the options are but more words per line would really improve read-ability for me. Thanks for considering it.

I am fond of web page design where the content area expands to fill the available width of the browser window, which would help with this issue to some extent.

More Width, Less Scrolling

While I agree , this also sounds like the punchline to the Wizard of Id.

More width and less scrolling is uncommon for those with smaller monitors or under geared computers resulting in a lower resolution. I myself run 1680x1050 and I find myself being about to full and access everything properly, so my suggestion is you see in most forums you can change the background color, why not allow the user to change the "Resolution" background.
