Is it annoying? Would you prefer to have this on the left hand side again? I know I've spoiled you all by not having anything on that side for a while, so let me know what you think.

The problem is that, at least on my old 800x600 resolution pc, the posts seem not to have enough space and personal images have to be thinner to be entirely seen.

On my laptop I'm fine because of the resolution. On my old desktop, I have the same problem as Albert. Things get kinda cramped in. It doesn't really bother me though.

How about just keeping the blocks in right column only appear on the main page?

These blocks would not appear in the subsequent sections of the forum, such as High School, General Chemistry, etc.

Add "Chemical Forum Blog" in the Menu, but make it bold and bigger fonted.

This might be solution to our clutter program

This website runs on SMF with the Tiny Portal extension. There is so much potential here.

It is a a clutter because firefox must utilise the horizontal slider to facilitate full view of the forum page.
