    Question Do You Prefer Solid or Liquid Forums Skins?

    Solid styles are styles that have a fixed width (usually 800 px), liquid styles are styles that adjust according to your browser. Which do you prefer to use?/Why?

    To compare, use the quick style chooser at the bottom of the page.

    I prefer liquid styles because I like them to fit to my browser screen. An 800 px interface is too narrow for high resolutions although for some reason I see it implemented on forums quite frequently.

    Now the reason I have no preference is that my monitor is an old CRT with max
    resolution of 1024 by 768 and therefore it really doesn't make a difference to me which I use the difference is to small to notice either way

    I don't believe I have seen other forums that use solid styles besides Skadi. I believe it is good to have an alternative though. I like the possibility of choice, it is a very Germanic trait.

    I prefer Solid, as the width of my monitor causes text and images to appear distorted or too spread out in Liquid Style. The former keeps what is displayed clear and condensed.

    Using a high resolution, I prefer liquid. Solid only works if I use smaller resolutions like 1024 x 768.

    I use the liquid one, because it uses the whole screen.

    Liquid....I never managed to use a solid one. It is tiring for the eyes.
    Pity because the Nature theme, otherwise splendid, comes only in Solid.

    Liquid, the Solid skins are a bit too constrictive.

    I prefer the solid style, as it is more orderly.
