I concur, whole heartedly. Looks wonderful- very sharp! Hopefully, you gents can get by all the bugs. Having the B&C down is like having a family member in the hospital.

Have the admins considered making the background image scale/fixed via the background-size: cover; method? You'd need a fallback for IE8-, but that could be done in the CSS by making the background-size a repeat at the end.

 

body {

background: #191919 url('http://www.bolterand.../background.jpg') no-repeat center center fixed;
-moz-background-size: cover;
-webkit-background-size: cover;
-o-background-size: cover;
background-size: cover;
}

 

Maybe you'd need to feed an IE conditional CSS, I'm not overly familiar with the site. But the fixed background would make scrolling look better IMO and cover those people who like to browse at the entire screen width.

Yes, a fixed background image is one of the options we are considering in working on the broader range of skins. What you currently see is a "B&Cified" application of a template skin.

Can I suggest that the yellowish background of the "Edited by" box is removed? It is so eyecatching that at first sight it's the only thing you really notice about a post, and yet it's the absolutely least-interesting part of it … in fact I would like to make a case for removing that line altogether, considering how pointless it generally is to mention the last time a post was edited.
