    Looks great for the Holiday's. However, some screens are too wide to view without scrolling, can they modify it so all views fit horizontally without having to scroll to the right?

    Great Holiday graphics - everything looks so cheery! I especially like the smiley face next to everyone's username - ha! Maybe those should stay beyond the holidays:smile:

    The skiing penguin is pretty cute; however, the many species of this flightless bird are indigenous to Antarctica (South Pole). As Santa is an Arctic (North Pole) resident, he would not have occasion to see any penguins near his residence.

    I'll interpret the graphic as Santa delivering presents to his Antarctic friends.

    True. But I don't think that there are any trees in Antarctica so maybe the penguin is vacationing at a ski resort. And from the looks of the hills probably some place like "Ski Liberty" in PA.

    Thank you for the feedback. I compared the Christmas skin to the default skin, both of which are fluid (most items expand/contract in size with window size changes). They both have a limiting object which determines when you have to scroll (such as the text editor box in replying to a post). While the default may have a bit smaller limit, it's not much. Are you running a low resolution?

    Thanks, we'll consider using the smiley faces afterward.

    In the interest of a purely objective analysis of how realistic the skin is, note that we are talking about a skiing penguin.

    Indeed, probably a smaller resort. Though with the lack of snowfall so far this year, it doesn't appear to be anywhere in the U.S.
