New layout of comments meta-data seems compressed and cluttered Answered

I don't think I like the tweaks that were done to the comments format.  The user's avatar, date/time stamp, and username are all mashed together with no spacing between them.  I liked having the date/time in the upper right corner, but I know that a lot of users missed the information (leading to silly bumps and year+ late replies). 

Perhaps you could do something like:

[Avatar] <username> wrote on <date/time>:

with some spaces to keep the formatting nice?

That's not all, line-breaks seem to be a problem L

Ditto. Line breaks seem fine in Rich Editor, but they go poof in not-Rich Editior.

Perhaps you could do something like: [Avatar] %variable verb% on : with some spaces to keep the formatting nice? It could pick out a random phrase from the database to include: whined whinged (for Lemonie) ranted (for RavingMadStudios) confuzzled *sighed* (for Goodhart) etc, etc...

Hmmm, looks like the spacing got deleted and it got rid of the date/time in greater than/ less than sign brackets.

In rich text mode, if you drag the input box out too far, you it gets covered up by the featured column and you can shrink it back up to see what you are typing.
