Its a known issue
/raises hand. Uhh Mr. Burke? How can something that was done intentionally be called a 'known issue'?
For the initial launch - we originally had planned on launching a 1024x768 site, but after looking through the web server logs - we could see that there were still a large number of users who view the site at 800x600. So we discussed it and decided that the intial launch should try and support the maximum amount of users possible.
and we are working on a second version at 1024x768 as well as a scalable one that fits almost any resolution.
We will have another version of the site formatted for 1024 x 768 this summer (now whether that's something that will auto-select for you or if you'll need to choose that size format via a user preference isn't something I've figured out yet). However - I wouldn't count on a "scalable one that fits almost any resolution" - that would be a fairly easy item to do if we were still primarily text based, however with the new emphasis going on a much more graphical look - that is a very difficult task to do well (especially if you don't want to have miles of empty space surrounding graphical items on the page when run at ultra-high resolutions). That's not to say it's not something that is going to be looked into, just don't want you to have unrealistic expectations.
Now, if you can kill the high-intensity, 3-foot-by-2-foot "CG" at the top of the page, life would be good. ;-)
;-) yes, one of the 'future features' would allow a bit of site customization, so you could have some other options besides that current logo.
expect the site to switch back from E3 mode shortly.
I would anticipate that sometime this week it will convert back (I'm thinking Thursday - mainly because I'm trying to play catch up with my real job and family after spending last week at E3). Plus as Ron said, there is still a large number of E3 post-writing that is still being completed.
