I would like to thank you for OPF.

I am writing to you to commend you for for a forum UI layout that maximizes the width of any screen to fully appreciate and view the image.

This was made possible by having the username & its details be located at the top of the post rather than the more traditional left side of the post.

Also grateful that you & your team decided to update the forum UI to year 2022 rather than year 2012.

Pia, you are very generous on your comments and support.

Everyone appreciates your stellar contributions!

The original design was a team effort but made possible in 2006 by Nicolas Claris the Bateaux, Chateaux, Gateaux famed photographer from Claris PR agency in Bordeaux France. The auto expansion of width was a particular feature we strived for.

For years we had our own IT expert, but he was eventually taken up with his own affairs.

I have managed everything my myself since then, hiring consultants to migrate to our current software several years ago.

I operate far, far above my pay grade but use smart folk hosting OPF to keep us on track!

I plan to add galleries once I have finished updating my personal website!
