I talked to Ted, the CTO of the Huddler, for a good part of an hour just now, and we addressed a few of the most common concerns that a lot of users seem to have.
1) Excessive white space
There are a few ways to address this, but could some of you help me out, go to "preferences" under the thread title in any thread, and chick "Yes" on Hide avatars and Hide signatures, and tell me how much that improves readability?
One of the easiest ways to decrease white space is to decrease the avatar size.
We are also talking about removing extra lines before and after quotes.
2) Slow response time - a lot of resources are devoted to making the site faster, but one small script may be causing some unintended consequences. Ted is actively looking into that issue now.
On an unrelated note, we are going to be tweaking the B&S system. J has already addressed this elsewhere, but just to reiterate, the B&S system is brand new, embryonic, really, and we are tweaking the rules and requirements as well as the seller tier structure to make this work.
