    Re: why

    I have found it happens when someone posts a photo in the thread. I think it expands the page larger to accommodate the photo.

    I could be wrong though

        He has a photo in the original post-it is an attached thumbnail. See how the box expands to the end of the screen?

          Re: why

          I think the IT team people have huge monitors and set the resolution up too high.
          This is especially true with the new wide screen type monitors. They forget that
          many of us still use 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768 resolution. I don't have a wide screen,
          but I can run at 1280 x 1024 resolution and view the whole page but the letters are
          just too small on my 17" monitor. Now on a big 20" or larger and especially on a wide
          screen monitor it would be different. I think that's the issue. The Ridge IT team
          needs to automatically do more page formatting for us and setup the forum for
          lower resolution viewing.

            I have 3-24" wide screens and 1-20" wide screen in my office which is great during the winter but not so great during the summer. It is amazing how much heat those things put out.

                My best guess is that the occupation/years experience field is not wrappable (i.e. it must fit on one line). Since some people have very long ones + an avatar it is forcing you to scroll.

                  That used to happen to me also Hawk. I bought a Monitor Stretcher from Best Buy. I think it was less than $20. Well worth the price. Turned my 19" into a 24" widescreen. No more scrolling left and right for me

                          Thank God it is happening to you I thought it was only me, but if we have to blame someone let it be Joey.
