I’m happy to consider proposals; please provide the required CSS so we can test it.

Well I’m not exactly a web developer (images were done in PS), so this is far from elegant responsive css - but this covers most of what I meant:

.post-stream .row, .small-action{
    background: #181818;
    width: 65%;
    min-width: 770px;
    padding-left: 15px;

.category-list, .latest-topic-list  {
    background: #181818;
