Poll: Poster names on right or left?

So on the old board when you looked at the posts in a thread, the posters name and avatar would be on the left side. In this look, I changed it to the right side.

What side do YOU like?

My answer: Yes. Right or left. Top or bottom makes no sense.

People read from left to right - so why would placing the name on the right may any sense??

Its not a huge deal but I see who made the post, then look down to read it. So it makes sense for me to have it in the left, right above where their sentence starts...

any way to darken the grey shading between each post ... they run together visually.

agree .. now everything is too dark and still runs together visually. color scheme needs to make clear bold line/shading between each text. darkening the font on the posting date will help a little as well .. that is a visual que that can be picked up quickly .. it is light grey right now.

qouting works well as is because you have indentations with bold red lines on left side .. so it is easy to follow when nesting quote replies.

but original post after post runs together .. try darkening date first .. may help more than I think .. maybe make it bold red to set it apart nicely from lighter black text used in posts.

I like the simple change so far. Darkening the posting time works!

I also moved the poster names back to the left as that was winning pretty easily.
