centered would be cool. I'm just not used to it yet.. : /
It'd be cool if the background was changed to white or we can change it to any colour we want or maybe add a different picture?
I really like it centered!

I like it but once again I think it might be better if we had more of a variety, Like maybe a city layout. Durem, Akiea, and Barton. It might make it feel more like you're in that city, but thats just my opinion.

I'm not feeling the transparency in forums. Everywhere else, the middle has a white background... but not in forums?

I don't get it.
I like it centered. Maybe it should still be an option to center it just in case though. But the one issue I had with it is the back ground. Maybe I didn't explore enough to find some way to change it. But the option to change the back ground would be great.

I like the idea of centered, but the picture bothers me and >> visually when going between posts and other things that are white or lighter then the background it makes it very difficult to read

          Krly speaks up!********

            I like the idea of having it centered. I have wide screen, so there's always this 300px width space at the right with... nothing

            HOWEVER, the problem is the background image. I don't like it, it looks odd, and is hard to read the signatures in the forums. If you could keep it white or something, it would be awesome.
            Or even if you keep the image, it would be better if it doesn't "melt" with the space wetween the posts

            Thanks :3
Eughh, I really don't like it, everything just seems so compressed. I like the big widecreen! Why don't you just make it a choice for everyone if you do decide to bring it in as a official feature!!! Pweaseee!

The site centered-ness is interesting... However, I think I like the ability to switch it back and forth too. Can we keep both? xD

I like it centered, though The background should just be white. I use Google Chrome and the image is only on the bottom and everything else is blue.

And I think the navigation should be stretched out over the whole page.
I love it to bits.
It could be a little wider, though.

It looks horrible centered. Your entire site is designed for a non-centered look; you can't just go "oh let's center it" and expect it to look good.

From a design perspective that's just taking a picture and squishing it to fit in a frame. It doesn't work. That's not how it was meant to work and it doesn't look good like that. It's not just the background, the layout was designed for the left-anchored appearance.

Personally, as a designer I think that you ought to be ashamed trying to just do something like that. It's lazy. If you want to give a "visual update" of that nature you'll need to completely rethink the overall design and layout.

So uh, I voted no.
