Question Enlarge the Message box?

Its wrapping around too much. Can it be made wider? There's a lot of unused space there. I have a widescreen monitor, but I'm not even showing the whole desktop. The Message box itself just seems very narrow when you look at the page as a whole.

Silly Spro.

By asking, you know he is not going to do this.
He will probably make it smaller.

Its not really how much you write. It gets annoying when links and code wrap around to the second line.

I don't know if this is a display issue, but from the looks of it here at work, it has already been done. Now it goes past the Google Video toolbar button.


What's yours look like?

Well, good for you. My reply was pertaining specifically to Ron's. I don't want to have to dick around with the size of the message box every time. If it was reasonably-sized in the first place (which it now is), you wouldn't need to alter it at all.
