Come, come, all children who love fairy tales.
As the title says. For what it's worth

It's been like this for a while, but I don't know exactly when it started. It's been bugging me for a few months (I think), but might be earlier than that.

The front page, forum pages, etc everything, scale nicely with the browser window, but the video game pages don't. (The BGG game pages do.)

I'm on a MacBook Pro from… er… 2011, OSX 10.9.5, Safari 9.1. Screen resolution is 1280x800, so my rough guess is that I normally keep my browser to about 900 or 800 width. For the VGG game pages, I can't even widen the browser window enough to get the VGG game pages to display everything without having to scroll sideways, so they force themselves to 1300 pixels wide or more.

It's like this on all VGG game pages, and I can't see what causes it. I can't see a single module that would lack space.

Don't know if it's important, and I guess all I'll hear is "update to 10.10", but maybe the Geek cares enough for VGG to make a note.

* Same problem for RPGG game pages, although the forced width is less. (rough guess around 1000 pixels).
* Same for Geeklists; seem to force themselves to 1000 pixels.
* BGG's pages get along very well with almost any width; scales nicely.

Edit: Extra notes:
* Game RELEASE pages scale nicely
* Game pages SEEM to scale nicely the first second they load, then they "snap" just get ultra wide.

Wow, this wasn't just "a few months", but actually since March last year:
Page Layout bug: Title module does not compress horizontally

I don't have a very good memory, do I? At any rate, the problem persists.
