I guess this question isn't specific to Writing, more relevant to all Beta SEs, but I don't really know where else to ask. As of today (the redesign kicked in), about half my screen is empty white space on the sides. Then come the side bars (one of them the navigation bar that does nothing but reiterate what's already above the questions), and then, in the middle, there's a teeny-tiny narrow space for the actual questions. Which is rather annoying, considering I have a 28'' screen. Out of 24'' of width, I get only 9'' of content (questions, answers), and the rest of it is sidebars and wasted white space.
Are there some settings somewhere that allow this to be changed? Collapse the left sidebar, at least? Do something about all the white space? It's just weird that the content I'm here for only uses 37% of the screen.
