500px bottom spacer of page
« on: December 30, 2011, 11:09:46 PM »
Hi, this is probably directed more towards Matt and the developers, but perhaps if others have uses for this they can chime in.

The iconic SFC giant bottom of the page spacer, does it serve a purpose?

None at all, it's just excess page length. You can download a script to remove it at Eljercode.com, and scroll down to 'RemoveTrailingSpace'. Download that (I use chrome, works on Firefox too, I believe) and it will remove the space.

I'm already removing it myself, but it's written in there almost like it has a purpose:

Quote from: starfleet.css
(line 100)
.spacer {
  height: 500px;
}

As far as I and almost every other player know, there is absolutely no purpose to it.

I don't know the actual purpose; my best guess was it was added for formatting into facebook's old iframe, so that the bottom wouldn't get cut off. I seem to remember facebook misadjusting the height of some other games, so maybe bfg added it in a couple years ago to help it there.

Nowadays, no clue. Seems useless

The spacer is still there as a result of Facebook's poor iframe resizing.

Facebook sucks... I'm glad you guys set up stand-alone off of facebook... otherwise I would never have came back after the launch of X2 (I quit before uni 2 was released, but came back for X2)
