Question Column sizes shifting

I don't know if this is my problem or yours.
Currently in Non-tennis "Dr. Martian Bagel Glitter-Loeffler-Caro" has authored a thread. For me, this causes the column containing subject titles to shrink, squeezing them into nearly unreadably small boxes of several lines in order to acommodate the thread author's long name. I thought this was a case of messing up the margins (like too many dots on a post) but have since learned it's not affecting other people. Any suggestions?

I have a pretty large monitor - maybe that is why it isn't effecting me?

Hm, on my screen, the name (Dr. Martian Bagel Glitter-Loeffler-Caro) is on two lines, so the name-column stays the same size... which definitely wouldn't have been the case before the upgrade.

So I don't understand why the name isn't broken down on your computer, earthcrystal...

(I have a PC, using Windows XP and Internet Explorer 6.0 - maybe if you have a Mac, or another version of Windows, or another browser or browser-version, that could be the reason...)

Of course, like Rebecca said: if you would have a bigger monitor, or use a higher resolution, the problem wouldn't present itself...

Maybe you could try setting an higher resolution?
Hope that helps...

In the actual thread the name splits into two lines but in 'thread starter' and 'last message' it stays all on one line and then I have the same problem as earthcrystal. Since someone has started a thread about it in NT I guess other people are having problems too.
