Hmmm... that seems reasonable. I'll see if we can do this. However, nearly all resources are being poured into the drive to bring out the fully mobile site, which will alleviate a the problems people have now (see CDFS's comment.) The mobile version of the site will make navigating very simple. And I'm sure that most of you will agree with me that it's about fucking time. So, yes, I'll push for this, but there is a much higher priority target on the immediate horizon.
You do know that if you click anywhere off of the gallery frame, the full-sized images are dismissed though, yes?

also, can we finally fucking have the new posts button back? PLEASE!?!? its idiotic to have to hover over the forum button just to bring up the new posts option.

The first will probably not happen. There is often legitimate reasons to not spoiler the pictures, and making everything automatically spoilered would be more difficult for people not used to a rich text editor. If you want to spoiler something, it's easy enough. It's a tradeoff between making things extremely difficult for some users vs. making things a little easier for those who know how to do things anyway.
The second - er... to which pages on the site are you referring? On the forum pages, there is a "new posts" button...
