If you're open to aesthetic alterations (not bug fixes), I would like to recommend changing the "Full Editor" button to read something like "Full Reply", etc.. It's also a bit strange to open a poem/literary work and see "[So and So] says..." up at the top, followed by the piece. I like this effect in the cascading comments, but not so much in the actual body of a literary work.

I know you're busy with more important things, and that this is probably not the place. A neat, throwback look anyway.

I like the 'Full Reply' idea; I'll go ahead and change it.

Regarding literary works, I agree, but it's just temporary. I'm working on a complete upgrade to that area, but unfortunately could not complete in time. Still, should be done by December 28.

Oh thank the lord. This looks really edgy so far, I dig it.

Worry about Christmas for now, Nate! You can worry about YWS after the holidays!
Never forget who you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.

Well, avatars are now disappearing. I'm pretty sure it's something I did, so I'll get it fixed soon enough.

Woo, dude, so blue! And shiny new! ^_^

Will the overall site design stay the same, or will there be some kind of background changes happening as well? Or the option to have backgrounds if wished for?

Good work so far :) I had a bunch of notifications that I didn't have a chance to read before the craziness happened, and it's making me insane not knowing what they were xD So, needless to say, I can't wait to get the full site back! Ah anticipation!! Keep up the awesome work! It looks fantastic so far. Don't work too hard over the holidays, though.

Merry Christmas!

Ad astra per aspera, Nate! This is fantastic, even if it is a work in progress. I agree with everyone else; you deserve to kick back and enjoy the holidays, man. You've done an excellent job so far!

It will take getting used to but it is really shiny and sleek and very nice on the eyes.
But for me, the biggest amazingness is how little it charges when I use it from my phone. And fastee loading as well! I 'spect it might slow down when everything's up, but this is awesome.

Merry Christmas, thank you, and take a well deserved wonderful break!
