Reform the help section

Why is the help section so weird?

The author column should be shorter then the subject coloumn, and now the posts display weirdly. (As shown in the spoiler below)

I suggest that they should widen the subject column and shorten the author column, since the layout is really annoying.

What do you think?

This has been mentioned a few times and doesn't really need yet another idea devoted to it.

 

The issue is simply down to the Author and Last post fields having priority over the formatting of the page, as evidenced everytime a member with a long username posts.

 

I have messaged Vincent to deal with this as per any other sort of error, and to consider using a fixed width system of columns

But theres only a few long names compared to the many long named posts.

And thanks for contacting vincent, has he replyed?
