Centered Gaia actually hurts my eyes, i think it could be an option under account preferences, but it shouldn't be default. I don't really care too much on the background, I would have cenetred turned off, but it would be a good option for people who want it. PLEASE don't make it default! cry

i'm just not too happy about the background
or the fact that guilds look terrible

Just to let you know I found a bug with the centering thing. I hope I'm not the hundredth person telling you. Anyway when the site is centered there is a glitch with the gifting items in which the window pops up in the background instead of the foreground making it impossible to do anything but refresh the page. After turning centering off, it worked again.
They said there were gonna be bugs. o-o and its just a demo. its also hard to use guild and inventory quick links. so they'll work it out.

I'm sure they will, that's why I was telling them about it.

I do think the centered works, but should be given the choice and choice on background.

It looks nice, but my browser kept crashing when I used it, until I deactivated it. I use Firefox, so I don't know it it's just me.

I really like the center-ish-ness smile Plus, we'll have a background pic in it all; nothing wrong I see here other than the fact that it zoomed out for mine; still can read, but might be trouble to others? Still like smile
I like it. Especially the color scheme of the background art.

Unfortunately, I had to deactivate it to solve the Inventory glitch.

Love it. But I'm having the same problem as several others. You can't access your wardrobe or the item options in your inventory.

I also noticed that problem. It darkens the whole screen,and it unables to sell,equipt or open the item trough the inventory.

It's a nice idea, but I like the site better how it is.
Centering it and having a backround makes the actual site smaller. To me it seems too cluttered.

I voted no on centering the site, but if this does become a permanent feature please have an option to turn it off.
I like it centered!
I chose "let us choose from several backgrounds" because it was the closest answer to what I suggest. I think centering the site would be cool if you expanded the centered area a bit.

Also, if you are going to do it I think it will look stupid if the header doesn't match the background so I think that the background should change with each area you enter like the header does.
It could provide a cool 'in the center of gaia' effect, like an atmospheric kind of thing.
I love it centered!
I do agree that maybe the header should change with the background and the choice in backgrounds~

I love it, but I think that we should have the options of turning it off AND choosing the background. 3nodding

I like the centering but I had to turn it off because it effects the ability to sell items in inventory. The gray pops up like usual but instead of the little box coming up above the grey, it stays behind the grey so the item can't be sold, or even anything done with the item. You can't even close the item.

I like the centering, it looks neater. It's better than having the random empty space on the sides, but I do agree with perhaps making it wider? And furthering the places that it's transparent? I feel like if it's going to be transparent in most places, it should be transparent in all places. If that happens though, I can see problems with what color the text may end up being; it would have to be something that could be seen well on white and black backgrounds and, of course, everything in between. I'm sure the other glitches and problems are being commented on... I think it's a nice idea though. I like how it's a bit more compact.

And maybe, if it is transparent in most places, at least keep the bubbles white so that people can use their own unique signatures and fonts and colors. :]
