The new theme is designed to function without any issues for a minimum resolution of 1024 x 768. At that resolution the forum width should be just about the entire page. The higher resolutions will start shrinking towards the center a bit but it shouldn't look too small on most higher resolution screens.

If you mark "Other" please let us know more precisely by posting the resolution as a reply in this thread.

Thank you guys!

I use a Macbook Pro and with a 1440 x 900 resolution. I know that Chris L T521 also has a Mac but his resolution beat mine by a bunch :( The site looks good on my screen in terms of width.

1920\(\times\)1080

I'm pretty happy with the spacing and the design. Looks great!

The screen is fine with regards to width but there are "wasted" bars of background on the left and right (as I'm sure you know full well with your resolution lol)

That's probably for the best, though. The space on the sides limits the length of each line of text, which can make the content easier to read.

I talked to the designer a while about various options and he explained to me that setting the width to 100% for all screen resolutions would be bad for the higher ones. There would be so much empty space in the middle of the forum as opposed to the sides and you would have to move your mouse much more from side to side, so I think we found a decent compromise although no choice is perfect.

Thanks for voting/posting everyone! Hope to see more soon.

On computers the minimum width is 1024, but on my mobile device is drops to 800 (I don't use that for MHB, but I imagine others might want to use such a device).

1600 x 900 on home computer, more like 1280 x 1024 on work.

I use 1920x1080. Looks neat here, no glitches that I can see. I don't mind the wasted space on the sides, I very much rather that to reading posts with only two really long lines. This is how it displays on my browser (this was resized to 1600x900, apparently no image hoster seems capable of handling this resolution):
