    Take a look down the side of the side-header post bit. Look at all the wasted space.
    true... and posts will be slightly shorter due to the more width-space... but I was just countering the previous arguement that it would be a huge space saver.

        | ... |		|
        | ... |		|
        +-----+----------------+

      The new style of postbit is a huge space saver, if you ask me. ESPECIALLY if you add lots of hack-related extras..
      No not really, I would much rather have it on the left.

        I think I'd like this better...

        +---------+-----------------------------------+
        | | Stuff here |
        | Stuff | Stuff |
        | Stuff | |
        | Stuff | |
        +---------+ |
        | Stuff wraps down here too |
        | |
        | |
        +---------------------------------------------+

        Not to scale :P

        But yeah, I'd like a postbit like that.

        EDIT: BAH! Got screwed up, oh well, you get the gist.

          Yes, but I was countering your counter. It does save space. Even with the tradeoff the top-header comes out ahead in terms of savings. <cough>

          That information is still taking up space, be it on the right or left, but where you have unlimited length to scroll you only have limited width to work with. On pixel basis the savings might not be huge, but it is a more efficient use of space.

          Anyway, "Style Not Final."

            the masses will always be aposed to change, however on this matter i'm with them, it's gonna generally be a huge waste of space unless done properly which i highly doubt we'll get with the default skin but who knows, who cares, we'll probably all mod it anyway, i aint seen a board i've liked that's not modded the majority of it's templates

              Ksilebo, you mean:

              Code:
                +---------+-----------------------------------+
                |         |    Stuff here                     |
                | Stuff   |      Stuff                        |
                | Stuff   |                                   |
                | Stuff   |                                   |
                +---------+                                   |
                |      Stuff wraps down here too              |
                |                                             |
                |                                             |
                +---------------------------------------------+
              but without actually seeing it in action, I think

              Code:
                +-----------------------------------+---------+
                |                                   |username |
                |                                   |         |
                |                                   |         |
                |                                   |         |
                |                                   |         |
                |                                   +---------+
                |      Stuff wraps down here too              |
                |                                             |
                |                                             |
                +---------------------------------------------+
              might be better -- just because I think people like to have a straight left margin when reading. It would take a little time to get used to the right sided name/avatar though.

                errr...no. This would save space.

                  Exactly! I'd be willing to try either configuration.

                    no isn't the right word, define space before dismissing something all together

                    • Although one goal of the new style is to conserve space, that certainly isn't the overriding factor in all decisions - the primary concerns are to reduce clutter and simplify the interface.

                      Just FYI.

                            First of all, you seem to have very little faith in the new Style.
                            Second of all, if you'd pay close attention to what Kier (and sometimes Scott & others) is saying about the new style, it's that it's 1) less clutter, 2) more userfriendly and 3) simplified, better overview etc.

                            I'm absolutely positive that the new style postbit will not only be a space saver, but also make matters easier when it comes to: overview, adding hack-related postbit info, redesigning the feel without reinventing the wheel, etc.

                            I've already tried it out by making a new GeckoSkin postbit design. Works wonders for space saving, readability, and more.

                            If people want to revert to the 'old-skool' sidebar postbit, that's fine with me but I for one will most welcome this change. I feel that whenever something entirely new (or 'new' in this case) is introduced and many people whine about it (forgive the lack of a better word), it's a good change that just has to grow on you.

                            • Sorry, just getting a little anxious since it's the last week of November.

                              • vBulletin Gamma will be released by the end of this week - I would expect them to make a new status update thread if plans had changed since a lot of "When is it out?" questions have been redirected to the Status Update thread.
