So... um....

Can one of the alternate views be the old Teoti? This new format isn't really doing it for me.

I'm not on a mobile device, and I have acres of screen real estate. I liked being able to see 200+ threads. Not, 10 or whatever it currently is.

Hmm. Said griffin thoughtfully, stroking his manly bristling moustache. What a magnificent bastard you are tonight, he further cogitated as he caught a glimpse of his manly self in a mirror.

I think a more compact style could address this. It would need to have the like/dislike buttons side by side, and the user's avatar would be replaced by either a tiny picture the size of something really small and tiny, or with just the user's name. That might do it. I'm sure Mark will be by soon enough, looking for feedback and suggestions.

That's real chest hair, by the way. Egad, I am positively a leonine magificence of the first order this evening. By damn I need a monocle.

Since Mark is remaking the styler, maybe thoughtful suggestions wrapped in a $50 bill would make your suggestions happen.

When I first was using the styler, I noticed almost every style was not on the widest option. There was too much blank space on the sides... thats why my style has the widest option. Perfect for 4x3, but I imagine widescreens will still have extra space.

In the styler 2.0, I would honestly like to see the ability to make the main page posts more compact so i can fit more in. Or the ability to make 2 columns, or something like widgets that can go on the sides.

My "This sucks" comment sucked. I was not in a good mood when I opened this new format. I am not big on change. After review,This has possibilities. I have to admit, lots of hard work

I am getting used to it fairly quickly. I'm using Flee-bone Steak and it seems close enough to what I had been using.

any time someone i knew joined the site, they mentioned it took a while to understand the lay out. And who remembers all the "how do I submit", etc comments back in the day??

This is one of the first things I did with my style. I'd like to push it even wider if possible. I'm not sure I could use your 'banzai' style without developing some sort of twitch. Too red and contrasty for my taste.

I don't see it in the menu, I am using Flee's Bone-Steak style (I like dark pages). I am getting used to it it would be cool if their was a "New Posts" tab (expandable) somewhere in the right side menus... it would make thing alot nicer for us old farts.

You can go to dj's page by clicking on his name link, and right down at the bottom of his page you will see the styles which he has been working on. Click on one, and you should see the page open up in the new style.

I can't wait for the new styler to be available again. I think it's going to be a very strong selling point, as you won't be forced into a handful of different views, but you can build your own.

How far you can go with customisation will depend how much we can cajole nudge and flatter Mark into doing.

For the record, Mark I love you, you big strong bunch of wonderful you.
