This is what I see at Rybkachess.com:



I think it's not 800x600 friendly.

Well, are you a serious chess pler, or are you not?

It looks almost like they tried to take the two-dimensional screen and fold it up into three dimension and then take the two-dimensional projection.

actually it's quite simple, the graphic on the top consists of 2 parts and the right one is movable, so if there's not enough space for the head of the page, the righ part moves towards the left side and hides some letters...

To ple or not to ple, that is the question.

Well, it is made for 1024*768, but we used this "trick" to avoid problems in 800*600, if you choose a higher resolution you will see the complete text. Since the most users will have a resolution of 1024*768 or higher, this is not a too big problem. Of course in smaller resolutions you will have strange tables and the whole design will be destroyed... but sometimes you have to make a compromise...

But you have enough space so it can look good in all resolutions:



(And, I found Turbo's post hilarious, for some reason.)

You're only one step away from becoming a plaer. Then, player. An even bigger screen will get you the p(y)layer title according to The One Google™.

I have 1280x800 and I'm still just a player. Lenovo must have cheated me. I DEMAND MY MONEY BACK.

Or it's just a bug in Opera 9.5. Not inconceivable, considering it's in beta.

it doesn't look good if it is more left, it's a difficult design decision :)

Btw. it would be difficult to move it to the left side since I don't have the originalö graphics anymore and the text ist part of the picture...

Here are the cleaned up parts:

Left part:


Right part:


And the example of how would it look like:


I let it as example because I couldn't make an exact replica of the text's color so this is the best I could do.

OK, I took your pictures, good job :)
Btw, the pages besides of the start page look ok at 800*600, maybe the start page could be improved... I'll think a bit about it...

Thank you, you always listen to my suggestions and do something about them. It's nice to be around :)
