Do You Like the Site Centered?

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Hi Everyone!

As you may have noticed, we made a chance to the site yesterday. Now instead of having the site aligned to the left side of your monitor, it is centered.

We did this for a couple of reasons:
- Most major sites are now centered
- Since many monitors are now larger, sites look better centered

Please let us know what you think about this change! There are some things I really like about it that I'll wait until later to post until after hearing your thoughts.

Have fun reaching your goals today!

SparkCheers!

    the only problem i see is in the friend feed screen. it is cutting some of the messages off with the "stuff" on the right hand side. Fix that and it looks just great!

Thanks for everything you all do to keep improving the site!

    I also had not noticed. I guess that could be a good thing. You know they say a woman that wears makeup should not look like she is wearing makeup. How long ago did the change take place?

    I noticed right away and repositioned my chair so that I could see it better. Also better being straight above my keyboard, which is centered. It was "off" at first, but now I am used to it. emoticon

    I noticed and liked it. Wish it was capable of filling up my widescreen like amazon or other websites do. I still like it though.

  I actually did notice and, while it seemed odd at first, it's comfortable now. I'm not sure, however, that I would have deemed it necessary. If it makes others more comfortable then I'd label it an improvement.

    I didn't notice! Good!

Could you somehow make use of the widescreen monitor?
Like endomondo.com, it adapts to the screen size, and makes a full experience whatever my screen size is, phone, laptop, or desktop.

The SP website only uses 30% of my screen.

    I switch between a small netbook and a larger monitor. This should keep me from having to adjust every time I switch?

    Nice - As others have said, it just feels "righter" to be centered. You folks are always improving something - and you are helping us to do the same.....
