Can you guys change the aesthetic while you're at it? I don't see an option to change to mobile on my desktop version, but from the pictures I'm seeing it looks as IC mag has always looked with maybe a few tweaks. Why not change the weaksauce tiled background image and the put-you-to-sleep color scheme? Make it look like we're in the 21st century or some such.
In terms of membership I believe IC mag is the largest site in this genre....or at least one of the top three. Yet it has the worst UI. I mean it works -- it has worked for years -- and that's not something you want to bungle up in the name of style. But maybe put a polish on it? Make it less ugly...and less like something an IT student would have cooked up in 2003.
No hate meant by any means, don't take it that way. I'll continue to use IC mag unless it becomes unusable.
Just figure in for a penny, in for a pound. Do it up.
EDIT: So I read the OP closer and changed things over to mobile. The big twist here is putting user location and rep in limbo over the top of the post? Neither centered or right justified, just kinda hangin?
