Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
However, I'm actually wondering what to do with the extra space.

Simply expanding the width of the article text isn't terribly useful, since you just end up with unwieldy text widths.

I could set it up to increase the font size to maintain the text measure, but then you'll have very few lines per screen.

but of course you're stuck with a population of users who are, by their very nature, unsatisfied and unsatisfiable. There MUST be a better way! There simply MUST!

I'm sure someone must have done a fisking of web site layouts in function of ideological orientation.

  • Libertarian sites : highly user-configurable (colours, fonts, diary lists...) to the extent that every user is seeing something different, and there is no commonality at all.
  • Authoritarian sites : Fixed everything, set up for a 640x480 screen and never redefined.

Perhaps replacing the grey with some pretty picture would satisfy? Making it look more intentional and less wasted space.
