It looks like the countdown timer is messing with things.... on my phone the viewable screen width is the width of the timer.

Post background indentation is up to twenty characters on the left, and now the topics page backgrounds are being cut off on the right. The forum is now unreadable from my iPad(1), I can only access from my home desktop.

This morning the problem went from an indent a couple of characters wide to an indent about six characters wide, which is enough to lose one or two words on every line.

A couple of characters is annoying, but it isn't too difficult to figure out what the missing characters are when most of a word is visible, or when a missing word is one or two characters. Six characters is enough to make figuring out lost text an order of magnitude more difficult.

Now it's kind of random. Some threads alternate posts indent, some threads every post loses the left edge, about two letters' worth.

I'm going to sit on the fix until about Friday, and would appreciate it if some of you can tell me if you still see a problem after Friday.

Thanks a lot for the input.
ok, i'm online now ... and checking this reply.

I don't know if changes have been made, but I'm not seeing the issue today.
