I went on a forum today where the avatars are on the right side and it didn't feel normal. :eek: I love how some themes on software put the post bit at the top of the post meaning there's more room for the content inside each post.

I think it looks strange when avatars are on the right honestly. :p Makes me wonder if Japanese people think it's strange for avatars to be on the left though, since they read from right to left rather than left to right.

Anything can be easily designed, I actually had avatars moved up few years ago on a custom forum design of mine, but the problem is that it makes the text too wide. There's a reason we use columns and also fixed width, since the line of text can get too wide otherwise, causing an usability issue: eyes cannot follow so many letters in a row without putting in an extra effort.
