    Enlarge width of message textarea

    I'd like the width of the message textarea of the "Post New Thread" and "Post Reply" pages to be enlarged - to this post, I linked a picture, there you see what I'm talking about - see all the unused space on the right? You're looking at a 1152x864 resolution, but even in 800x600 resolution this box only takes up about half the space of this field. When writing longer words, or tags like URL, this gets annoying - scrollbars appear, text gets cutted while there's plenty of space!

    A link to prove my point :)

    On a sidenote: Is it possible to have the default options-selections memorized?

    I attached that picture the first time, honestly - another thing, while editing your post, you can't add an attachment... :)

    In your preferences you can set many of the options up to be defaulted to something.

    Yep the deformations s^ck , especially when you try to "draw" something, like a network setup... it will become screwed up...

    prove:

    |
    WAN router

    Victor, that problem can be caught by using the CODE tag (using monospaced text):

    Code:
            WAN router
          |            |
         PC1          PC2
    192.168.x.y  192.168.x.y

    Greetings All:

    Text area increased from a width of 70 to a width of 100. Hope that helps, and thanks for the suggestion!
