Just curious. I like to post PICs and usually size them down to 500x500 to stop the dreaded horizontal scroll bars from appearing but seeing as how the software supports up to 1024x1024, what is everyone generally set to?

The "standard" being 1024x768 on PCs. My laptop runs at 1680x1050.

Also assuming that those at 1024x768 run their browser in a maximized window. Anyone not at that res?


/yes, I'm bored.

1280 x 1024 for me. Browser ususally not maximized as I tend to be going between several programs at any one time, and I use extra large font setting on the system.

1024X768 because it's native to my LCD and my laptop. My parents keep their CRT at 800X600. Newbs...

When I post images here I usually do 640X480. Sometimes I'll do 800X600. I figure if anyone's at 800X600, that's their punishment...

I always assume 800x600 for web stuff...that's about the lowest common denominator. You'd be surprised how many business users are still at that resolution. The resolution I use isn't typical. Not everyone has a 21" screen.

/ just noticed the laptop I'm using now is at 1024 x 768...though people with bad vision often lower resolution to make stuff bigger.

1280x854, hardware default. I normally don't use my whole screen for only one ap though.

1920x1200, using a 24" Dell Widescreen LCD Monitor. It's really trippy when you rotate it 90 degrees into a vertical aspect ratio and the video driver auto adjusts.

1280x960. Mitsubishi 23" Diamond Pro. Safari unmaximized........usually have several programs running at once.

I wish people would putting oversized images on BBSs would learn how to resize sensibly.

Eh, 1024x768. But it's nice and flat, a little 15". Suits my needs just fine. :)

Ummm... this is a thread about monitor resolutions and is no place for your girly toy references.... (not that we mind)

I wouldn't need girly toys if I ran across a man who was sufficient. :p

Edit: Also, did I mention you're a sick bastard?
