  1. 1. Should we set zoom to 1 for <main> on resolutions over 2000 in width? Or should it stay like it is now?

    • Zoom 1 ( https://i.imgur.com/4QGoK2p.png ) - Change
      4
    • Zoom 2 ( https://i.imgur.com/D5U3NY2.png ) - Stay

Thank you very much for proposing this change and the quick reaction to my inquiry.
To those voting, please keep in mind that this change does not change anything for the common 16:9 HD monitors but prevents huge amounts of wasted screen space found in wider formats.
This change might negatively affect 4k screens, but I cannot tell as I dont have a 4k screen.

I think it should stay like this. I got a resolution of 5760x1200 and I think it wouldn't be very handy if it would spread all over the 3 screens. :Derp:

I cant quite grasp what you mean with that. Would you mind explaining in detail what you want to prevent?

I think you are missunderstanding your desktop resolution with the resolution of the webbrowser window.
The only important part in deciding the scaling/zoom as it is handled right now is the window size. The desktop resolution is irrelevant in that aspect.
If you have 3 displays with a resolution of 1920:1080 next to one another and you have one web browser full screen on one of the three screens nothing changes for you as the window resolution is still inferior to 2000 in width.

The only case where the site would spread over all the screens is if you were to spread the webbrowser over all three monitors which would be rather peculiar.

What this does prevent though is seeing less and less of the site as the window gets wider and wider, as everything becomes bigger and bigger.
For resolutions up to 2000 pixels wide everything works normal in regard to scaling. A bigger window means you see more content. But from 2000 pixels onward you actually see less content by increasing the window size because of the agressive scaling.
