If there was a switch in the ACP and it was defaulted to the left on installation, I think many more people would use prosilver.

That is why I am in favour of getting rid of subsilver2.

I am all for better UI, but that's actually what we attempted with listing the author details on the right (so that the important stuff is right where your eyes look). I think people would like it if the gave it a chance.

If we are talking about what the majority wants, they want topic data on the left. If it can't be made an option then perhaps it should be switched.

Actually, the first thing I want to know when having a conversation (online messenger, chat, real life, forum, phone) is who am I talking to. Sure, there is a small nickname on top of the post, but avatar is the thing that helps to identify that person. Dunno how it is for others, but I read from left to right and I just need to know who is the post author before I read it.
I'm not having any problems with a small style edit, so I'm not really requesting anything for myself. Profile info on the left just makes more sense to me.
