Updated UI has too much padding

In previous version, my full username could fit to left panel. From new features, post count and what I assume is Best Answer count should only take one row. I think it will fit if padding on both sides of left panel is reduced to half or 70%. While at it, padding between posts should be less, like 1/3 or 1/2, same with right side padding between post and right panel.

 

The UI for the forums has always been content first, and I do hope it stays like that.

 

E: Adding, I'm using 150% Windows DPI and 133% browser zoom on 1080p monitor.

So, for me on 100% macOS scale on a 1440x900 display, with 100% on the browser, it seems fine:

If you think I'm wrong, correct me. If I've offended you in some way tell me what it is and how I can correct it. I want to learn, and along the way one can make mistakes; Being wrong helps you learn what's right.

Frankly, no it doesn't. Padding is still too noticeable and could be reduced. I have used this forum always with same dpi and zoom. So I only bring those up if someone uses forums with widescreen (these users were the ones that previously complained about too much empty space). Yes, zoom does have effect on how much you can fit in one row. But it doesn't change the fact that padding takes too much of the pixels that could be used for better than just black background.

I cannot see the glasses of your avatar in dark mode. It's a floating hat over a face mask.

Partly intended. The black used is near the black of the background.

I don't remember it being that dark though. Maybe it's just my eyes this morning and need more coffee.

Background does seem to be more darker than previously. Maybe it was changed to be pure black instead of dark grey.
