Agree. Remove fixed width. Optimise for, say, 1366 in the x, but make it fit-to-window (or whatever it is called) when you have a smaller screen or if you make the browser window smaller. Just like this forum works! And just like the TPU main landing page works! No reason to use fixed width. That is so dated, and 1990s.

npu looks great on tablets
just loaded it up to check. looks good on the first gen ipad.


i'd say it looks better on the ipad than it does on PC, which might actually make sense with its different target demographic.

What is the deadline for applications? That is, if there is one.

Also, when will people be contacted regarding their "applications"?

I love creative writing and feel that i have a relatively good understanding and command of the english language, as well as a fairly comprehensive technological background. I have been frightfully busy just this last week, however, i am in the process of creating a submittal for one of the job opportunities mentioned in the original post.

It's a very exciting time right now to be a member here, and it's more than a privelege to have TPU offer us members such a fantastic opportunity to get involved!

How could one not be impressed i ask?

Kind regards from David.

I'm planning on sending in an application soon. It's the end of my University semester right now so I'm getting hammered with assignments and exams, after that I will send something in.

I would subscribe to a NextPowerUp feed from an editor called ZakkWylde :D
