Incase you hadn't noticed Slashdot has updated the user info page to add a nice gray background to the table of information.
They tried to arrange the data in a table format, I guess so they aren't repeating the words "Score" and "Replies" and such over and over probably wasting costly bandwidth. Yeah, right.
They tried to group the sets of comments by thread. Thus if you were involved in two threads and posted to each in an alternating pattern someone viewing your history can make better sense of your part of a discussion. This fails to work to me as a means to better understand things since the thread (ie, parent, or of your post is a parent) is left off, depth in thread isn't represented (like with tabbing as threads do on the main page), and the information about "attached to" is confusing as to which group of comments goes with what. It all just runs together.
Toss in that things are so wide on the screen so even if you did remember that the comments attached to something are listed after the "attached to" message you may have trouble lining things up. Then add in that this is left off for the first comment listed and you have the recipe for success! I recommend highlighting text with your mouse to ensure you click the link you intend to.
The tin-foil hat
I remember hearing of perl scripts that would read your posting history to come up with some ultimately useless score. This fix would bork those scripts (until updated).
Yeah, I guess this may be a dupe for some of you, I started writing this, posted it, and now I check my messages and I see that arb has already begun a discussion about this topic. Sorry arb, didn't know I wasn't the first with the story. Maybe it was that
In the course of posting journals it seems that the fun alignment issues when you would post a new JE (the text over ran other text and graphics) has stopped.
