Template Width

I'm not sure I like the template stretching the entire width of the page for these. When centered, they stand out more. Plus, none of the nation ones are ever going to be so full that they appear cluttered if not stretched. Was there a particular reason you tried this out? -- yoda8myhead 13:56, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

I changed it because you never know at what resolution someone may be viewing the project. For some resolutions, particularly the upper end, 50% would look fine and 100% may seem excessive. But at smaller resolutions 50% looks extremely crunched and impractical; the smaller the resolution, the smaller the template becomes. -- Heaven's Agent 15:45, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
Most software (and actually a good amount of programming classes) assume that the user is at 800X600, This is the smallest most newer monitors will go*. I think the templates should most likely make the same assumption.
*at least with factory installed drivers, many monitors will have additional drivers that MAY allow smaller.-- Cpt kirstov 17:55, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
Very true. We also need to consider the upper end of things. I usually run at 1280x960, and though the template at 50% doesn't look crunched, the white space around it is actually very excessive and distracting; it draws attention from the body of the article to the template itself. Alternately, at a resolution of 800x600 this particular template looks OK. But this one's rather light on text, and in most cases the template becomes exceedingly large vertically; even in this instance, it takes up almost the entirety of the visible space. -- Heaven's Agent 18:28, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
