    When you design a new style for your forum, which screen size do you design for? 800x600, 1024x768, ...?

    1024x768 primarily. But of course testing others as well.

    3 years ago the standard on some forums was 800 x 600?

    1024x768. Pretty much all the big sites (such as the BBC, CNN, Facebook, etc) all use 1024x768 as a minimum, so this is the way to go.

    I'm going with 1024 x 768, but what's the easiest way to make a 'smaller' and 'bigger' versions for folks of the same skin?

    3+ years ago I used to aim for 800X600. But within the past 3 years, I'am using the 1024X768 as the standard.

    I design for 1024p wide minimum, but, at the expense of my sanity, make everything variable width. Fixed width is a major peeve of mine. :)
