I like this, but there's a lot of white space .. perhaps too much. Maybe a more compact view would be useful?

Like others have said, the grey is too pale.

EDIT: It would be nice if the layout made use of columns .. this could provide innovative use of wide-screen resolutions.




I also agree. There is too much white color, the readability is not very good. I was exited about it as i already mentionned here that there is room for improvment of HN.

i'll uninstall it now. looking forward to try a corrected version.


Colornazi in me has to point out that white isn't really a color, otherwise I agree.


It's as much a color as any other -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Additive_color


I hate to be "that guy" but are downvotes really warranted here? Wouldn't it be sufficient to provide a correction?


I'm pretty sure it was the arguably-wrong nitpick combined with crappy grammar that sunk it.

I try not to down-vote just for differing opinions from my own, although my emotions do get the better of me occasionally. However, if I see bad grammar it's just automatic.


Even were he correct, it was a worthless comment.


I agree, far too much white space.


A bug here: http://img852.imageshack.us/i/hngeorgify.png/# (fixed image link)

The parent post is being shown as a reply to a peer and not the post it actually replied to. Seemed like normal threading until I noticed the reply was older than the grandparent.


Surprised since the only change I did was add padding to the top and bottom. Wonder how that changed threading. I am not using one line of JS for this.

Any suggestions as to what could be causing this?


I disagree. I like the whitespace.


Try the Hacker News UX extension for Chrome (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chngbdmhgakoomomnn...). It adds dual column support and works really well with Georgify.


both plugins actually work surprisingly well together. Good combo and mitigates a lot of the whitespace issue.


Totally love all the white space... Things look so clean around here now!
