    How's this? Widgets for latest topics and polls on the right and profile pictures on the right. Not happy with the small size of the banner and that it's not centered though. I'll keep working

I think the new banner and the changed up look is pretty much where we want it. I haven't seen or heard from PTFlea though. He should have a say in this naturally.

    I agree with most, that it's pretty busy looking, but I can get used to it. You should Private Message the users so they all have a vote and go with popular opinion on it, I guess?

    Much better now! Clapping

    EDIT1: Well almost, my banner in my signature seems to go over my avatar now

    EDIT2: NVM, it seems to only do that when I resize my window. Nothing to see here

    weird. Probably some odd settings issue. Maybe wprager could have a look in the Admin panel? I'll see if I can fix it at some point today.

    Also the embedding tweets is much better thanks to new quoting style. Still would be great to upgrade whatever javascript is on the host site to allow embedding media

    Avatars on the left will solve the issue with resize and long banners in your sig. But it leaves less room for the posted message text which could be an issue on smaller screens (tablets, phablets). I'm OK either way.

    Let's see tweets with picture work:



    Hmm, apparently not that well.

    Also looks like the options to include the parent tweet (when embedding a tweet) doesn't work. The top one has 'Include parent tweet' checked, the bottom one doesn't (from a source-code point of view the bottom one includes the property
    Code:
    data-conversation="none"
    which is missing in the top one, but it makes no difference.

    That Scanlan tweet was in response to Friedman's tweet about the NYR being close to signing Pirrir for $1.1M.

    Can we do something about the massive amounts of white space? Seems pointless and a bit distracting from the color scheme.

    That white space is where the Latest Topics navigation pane goes. If we change the posts per page from 50 back to 20 there will be a lot less of it. They really should make the side navigation pane fixed in space and just allow the posts to scroll.
