Screen Adjustment
In almost all my games, text adjusts to the window. I don't need to scroll right. In a few, I have to do so; about 1/3 is beyond the right border. How do I adjust the screen, please?

Are you using rpol.net or r.rpol.net?

Screen Adjustment
For future reference, if a horizontal scroll bar shows up in your browser while using rpol.net at normal resolutions (on a mobile screen it's a different story) that generally means someone has posted something forcing the resolution of the screen to become wider than normal in a way that rpol.net doesn't compensate for.

Typically images are the main culprit, but a single long unbroken piece of text which rpol.net interprets as a single "word" can also do it.

The site then uses whatever that wide bit is to set the width for everything else, so now all the text is too wide.

r.rpol.net fixes a lot of that, so the problem will eventually go away.

Screen Adjustment
I've had that issue here and there in the past...and it was ALWAYS because of an image that was posted in that thread.  As the thread moved forward and the image finally got bumped off the lead page, everything went back to normal, unless you started going back through old pages and then whichever page that image had ended up on was too wide for the screen.
