What I find frustrating about websites, not just CCL, is the incredible waste of viewing space. Most people today probably have, or will eventually have, widescreen monitors. When was the last time you saw a monitor with less than a 20" screen for sale? Looking at this forum page right now, there is at least 3-4 inches on both sides of just wasted space. It is way past time that web developers start making pages that utilize the entire screen and not just a strip in the middle.



You know this used to bug me to no end, but they do have a reason for it. Most sites are built on a world standard, not a US standard. While the US has about 250million internet users, "poor" nations account for about 5 times that. So while americans enjoy 24" flat screen monitors, these 3rd world countries still operate on old tv style monitors.

The one thing that is worse then a website that has wasted borders is a website so large you have to scroll side to side to read.


Thanks to the following sellers for helping me put together my complete run of Amazing Spider-man #1-700

ComicCastle
TreeHouse
Hall Of Heroes
Thundercron's Longbox
DrumCzar


Now for the sellers helping me finish my TMNT collection:

Hall Of Heroes
Green Bay Comics

+1. Ugh... I hate having to scroll left/right to read a webpage.

Of course, even if this were to happen tomorrow, CCL would still not take advantage of it for at least a couple more decades since that would mean they'd actually have to update the site.


I don't have a widescreen 24" monitor, I've got a 16" laptop monitor Mr. Moneybags! Winking

That's why I don't like using the internet on any of those handheld devices. The screen is too darn small and it's constantly scroll right, scroll left, scroll down, scroll right, etc...

Blah, I say!


Fantastic News! Hall of Heroes has now surpassed 600 Hero Ratings! I couldn't have done it without all of you and I will strive to maintain and improve my high standards. Which brings me to my next announcement - starting now, all shipments will come with tracking at no extra charge to you! I'm a little late to the party but as they say - better late than never. You spoke and I heard you loud and clear. Excelsior!



Now with 1,500+ positive feedback on the four letter site!
Standing offer to all CCL Members - every purchase you make from my other store (link below) earns you at least one freebie of my choice! If you purchase from Hall Liquidations send a PM to Hall of Heroes and let me know! Thanks!

I've got a 16" laptop too. My desktop monitor is only 22" but I am thinking of upgrading to a 25" when I get my taxes back.

Hey guys - at Joe's request, I have been asked to thank everyone for their contributions and suggestions in this thread on ALLLLLL the many features and requested additions to CCL that you guys have spent a long time waiting for. We have officially locked this thread as we get our ducks in a row for the new updated CCL. We appreciate all the comments made here and now begins the fun task of making sure we have gotten all the requests noted as we move forward.

Once the update is released, we'll talk more.

Thanks again and hang tight!
