maybe it's my settings ???
on my screen, the new width and length are a little larger..
here's a pic.. the new is on the left, and the old is on the right.. (I got the old from one of my old tmobile thread backups)
(I like the smaller one 'cause then more of the post body is displayed )..
Anybody reporting layout issues, I'd imagine it would be helpful if you would include which web browser you're using.
I like search being right there for me, but I have to agree with D'oh about all the links being moved in the main navigation bar. It seems that every time anything changes on SD, the "Forums" link (most clicked on the site, I'd assume) moves, and I'm left clicking blank space or the wrong link. It's such a habit to move my mouse right there and click. I'm not saying that the new placement is any better or worse, but I'd appreciate it if at some point we could pick a place and stick with it.
I've attached my new and old left panel (IE7). They're the same width, but you're right, the horizontal lines and boxes make it look significantly wider.
Also, I do like the user online notification being higher up. Not really sure if I like it before the name, but moving up is definitely a step in the right direction.

Sorry! We decided it would be best to move it to help balance the new search box. We promise we'll try not to move it anymore
Also, this is a fun game we're playing. I've always enjoyed "find the thread." I type up a reply, the thread is invalid when I submit it, I hastily go back in hopes my reply is still in the cache, all the classics. No, it's really not a big deal. I just have perfect timing to catch 2 threads being moved/consolidated in a row.
And to everybody reading this - yes, you may not be happy with some of the updates at the moment, but most of them will grow on you as you get used to them. I have to remind myself of that every time. If there's one thing that can be said about updates to SD, it's that they never make the site anything less than very useable. And, unlike many sites, the people here actually listen to our feedback. So give your opinion, but don't whine too much if it doesn't happen.
