Cool feature. However, in Firefox 3.6.15 at least, some of the descriptions overflow and cover the links. For example, check out the Open Source items for Joomla, Open Office, Video Lan and Virtual Box.

Pony99CA what is your screen resolution. I use FF 3.6.15 and this doesn't happen to me with:
total screen resolution of: 1600 x 900
FF window size of: 1562 x 744

Are you overriding the pages choice of font and size under Options-->>Content-->>Fonts and Colors?

Have you perhaps adjusted the font sized manually in Firefox, or set a minimum font size?

I had the same issue before (when the letter spacing was wrong) but didn't see it again, so I do think this is an issue with the sizes in CSS. It does look fine for me now though.
I appreciate gifts from my Amazon wishlist.

Font: Times Roman
Size: 16 point
On Advanced: Allow pages to choose their own fonts is checked

After playing around, I saw that I had Zoom text only set and was zoomed in. I'm very nearsighted and need to zoom many pages in order to read them comfortably. Unchecking Zoom text only seemed to work at multiple zoom levels.

Nonetheless, giving the boxes a little more vertical space might be a good idea.

Nice. :)

One question though: is there a restriction for english language only, or can other boards also be suggested?

I believe this has been suggested before a long time ago, anyway it is great to see and looks superb

VERY NICE, you do find yourself exploring the sites listed and I love the "suggest a site" option too

BRILLIANT!

It is definitely not restricted to English-only. :)

I would like to remind everyone, however, that this is not intended to be a directory of phpBB forums. The showcase is reserved for forums running phpBB which are, in some way, highly unique. That would include very large boards, uniquely designed forums, or well known corporations/persons/organisations. Just because a site is submitted does not mean it will be added. In fact, the majoriy of submissions probably won't make the cut. ;)

I realise that, but since I know of a few boards that I think are pretty unique but also Dutch, I thought I'd ask. :)

I'll contact the board admins (they aren't runned by myself).
