So far (after less than an hour, but reading several articles, replying to a couple, and posting one new one), I’m liking the new interface.

Minor improvement: I don’t see the point in having screen names since our real name is posted as well. In your case (Barry) I see the value since you have “administrator” after your name but mine, for example, “Darin Darin Boville”, doesn’t really work.

Otherwise looking good.


@Darin, agreed mostly.

That’s one of the things I don’t have a lot of control over, and turns out to be trickier than you might think.

However, if your user name and full name are the same (e.g. @barryparr and Barry Parr), it only shows your user name. User names are useful, because if you precede them with at @, you can link to their profile card, and they’re notified of a mention.
