Perfect Pony Plot Provider - Uploader of 10+ images with 350 upvotes or more (Questionable/Explicit)

Please fix it so it displays the number of image comment posts we've made, rather than forum comments. It's rather minor, but I do feel a bit of hurt pride seeing such a low number next to my name — it makes me look like a Derpibooru light weight!

No commissions, sorry
The comments take up less space now, which is a plus, but it all looks so cluttered now… Even turning the avatars off with AdBlock doesn't help all that much.

Anyone working on a Stylish script yet?

@Grieffon
Fixed the image thing for now (it's not up yet, for some reason the CSS compressor thingy is semi-derping aka it works but ogod it's so slow) by setting a min-height. Scrollbars (ARE YOU USING GOOGLE CHROME/CHROMIUM BY ANY CHANCE) should also be fixed, not unsurpisingly google chrome is not following standards, AGAIN. Also reduced the comment width a bit while I was at it.

@WatermelonRat
As with many things, consider it a work in progress for the time being.

@BigMax
Yeah, not sure if we need to have a postcounter (assuming it even works) on images).

I might also make the forum width slightly less hardcoded soon

The End wasn't The End - Found a new home after the great exodus of 2012

Ugh, omigosh it's ugly!

Like, every comment now is dominated by a huge-ass display of the poster's name. Why was there a need for that?

But then again I'm using CHROME so maybe it's just that.

I would honestly enjoy the option to switch back to the old layout like @Javert-Was-Here said. Oh-so-funny avatars and signatures were fine for the forum but when I'm browsing for new comments daily I don't need to see all the extra crap. I'd like my quick and effective comment browsing back please.

You know it's actually telling that on images I typically read every. single. comment. I even keep checking back for new comments. On the forums, I skip a lot.

Not a fan, feels too cluttered now, and avatars are just distracting, and I have a feeling that there will be a few times when someone's avatar doesn't match the subject matter and rating of the image, thus annoying some people, or just being inappropriate.

I prefered comments being much simplier, it looks lik the fourms now, and it doesn't make sense.
Forums are forums, they SHOULD look like this, but comments? Not everyone wants to see your joke gif avatar every time you comment on an image.

Maybe I'm just against change, but I'm just not really a fan. I wish I could just turn avatars off at least, then I doubt I would care nearly as much about the change, it would just take a little getting used to.

Duck - Has spent the last three years whining about the fandom and site like a child and yet still here he is being the worst of it. Amaze.

Like others have already pointed out; the new comment section is taking up too much space, i also liked how before the comments section etched a little to right kinda cut at the edges, and most certainly didn't blend into the background with it's distinct shade of gray! I also have to wonder; is having our icons under our names is even remotely necessary???

What is this?

Anyway my biggest objection is that it doesn't look as clean. It was was simpler and was perfect for comments. If you're going to keep this format I suggest moving the badges below the line. Will there be comment scoring?

How about shrinking the avatar a bit more while keeping the current minimum comment box's height, leaving some space between the avatars?

No seriously, I can't read anything, I keep getting distracted by all the random junk. This isn't about fearing change, this is about me not being able to use anything properly.

If I want to look at WHO's saying something rather than what is being said I can always go to the user's profile page.

All this user's name in big bold font-avatar-user stats just looks terribly narcistic or whatever.

The sad thing is, if you had had the forum features from the beginning and switched to the old format, you would have just as many complaints, mostly from the same people.

I like the change, although I agree that the forum info isn't necessary. Either remove it or replace it with something relevant to Image comments.

I also wouldn't mind if Background Ponies didn't get an avatar, but I'm mean-spirited that way.

QUIT WITH THAT IDIOTIC ARGUMENT
No, it's not &@#ing "blah, blah, people always complain about change, nyeh nyeh"
Don't you DARE dismiss people's clearly articulated opinions with that uncaring crap.

I'll live. It's not that. I'll probably stop reading comments most of the time, but you can't have everything.

But don't you DARE insult me and try to insist that I don't even know my own preferences.

@Vree
You're overreacting.
A lot of discussion boards have avatars displayed near the posts.
Essentially every forum. Even these forums on Derpibooru.
Nothing ever prevented to have lengthy and insightful debates.

You're not used to see avatars on Derpibooru's comment and that's a fact.
Then again, I don't think the current design is definitive, so just bear with it for a while. Other issues are going to be fixed for sure, starting from the forums' stats.

The current design is not by any means final. We're iterating. Feedback is good, but keep it polite.

Nah, I felt rather indifferent actually :) It's not like I had to browse comments so much instead of working anyway.

I just don't see why there is a need to dismiss people's opinions and insult them in the process. When people do it in these feedback threads, I think those people should be more acknowledging about it that other people honestly might be turned off or inconvenienced, not just complaining because they are idiots who don't know anything.
Accept it that some people do not get what they like or what's easier for them so that you can get yours, just as they accept it that their preference must of course come second after everyone else's preference.

So I overreacted to that, not the change. Sorry for that.

I can't even read the comment section anymore, so much distracting bullshit has been added to it. Please give me a button to hide everything but names and comments.

We posted within seconds of each other — I didn't see your comment until afterwards. It was aimed at the people upthread who were freaking out because one-line comments were now two lines tall.
