Why Are Our Hubs So Narrow?


I don't know why, but I just realized how silly these narrow hubs look with at least 3 inches of blank space on each side. That's on my normal-sized laptop, and I don't think anyone still has monitors smaller than that. If they do, they're in the minority. So why these squishy, narrow, pencil-shaped hubs? They look so silly!

    I agree that bigger images would look more professional, and also that the huge margins and squishy text make our hubs appear much longer. More scrolling for readers = less likelihood of them reading the whole thing. It's human nature.

    I always thought phones (etc.) had their own special format, unrelated to the actual web site. I really don't know much about it, but that makes sense.

    Oh, okay, that makes sense. Our hubs used to be just a bit wider than they are now, and I think they looked a little better, but to each his/her own!

    Yeah, I agree. But I'm not really interested in spreading the text across the whole page; rather, I'd like the text to be another 2-3 inches wider than it is now.

    Well, maybe they'll add more options soon, since they seem to be re-doing to whole web site. Fingers crossed..

    I agree, that would definitely help to keep things a bit more varied!
