When you can do something positive and usable by everyone like an extension, PR etc.
Then we can talk about it again. Thank you for your contribution. :)

PS.:
Use some lint tool for your CSS.

As I understand it when the new style for phpBB 4 comes out it will be a simple process to put the profile wherever you want it - be that top, left, right, bottom or anywhere else that you can think of.

Am I to assume that nobody else is allowed to have an opinion unless they are willing to do PR's and/or extensions? That seems a bit odd for a public topic.

I'm not sure why you're being so narky about this. Everyone was just expressing their preferences. It's easy to put avs anywhere you want them. What's the big deal?

PS: I have not bothered to optimise that CSS, and it does have to run on top of what is already running on this site.

Not really. We talk phpBB here though and how to enhance it the right way. Not general PHP/HTML etc discussions. There are venues out there where to discuss general stuffs like that. :) Whether you like it or not I don't discuss these matters here and I find them inappropriate to be honest. Many people confuse phpBB as the source of their general needs for specific languages, which is wrong in my opinion and others.
Do not take offence please.

That is not true in this forum - the title is "General Discussion" with a description of

@ david63, I know.

But the general chat/support about code languages and programming if not devoted to phpBB as far as I know got no place in here. :o
Not to mention that this topic itself should be not here but in phpBB discussion as it is a phpBB related topic. ;) IMHO.

Putting the profile on right (for desktop) was a nice change to subsilver on PHPBB2 for us. When we went included mobile on subsilver - felt more natural to put the profile on the bottom rather than the top as is currently seen on prosilver. Profile on the right gave a nice breakup for ad units as well on desktop.

A lot of admins love the post profiles and they set their forums to allow huge avatars, so they wouldn't look so good at the top of a post.

For admins who want to keep things minimal 3Di's screen shot looks good,

Years ago I did a custom style where the post profile was hidden all together and the user would click a little icon that would slide the profile out, I just made the "by username > time/date" text size a bit bigger so people could clearly see who had wrote the post etc,

I wouldn't really say I dislike them being anywhere though, I tend to be more interested in the content of the post than the profile, but if I had been using a style or software that had profiles on the left for years and then changed to phpBB where it's on the right - it would take a while to get used to.

In my opinion the profiles in the posts should stand up high so as to leave more space for the content.
Using an HR to distinguish the two would certainly help.
This is my dream:

Dark = read
Green = unread (or own posts?)
MouseOver or click on the user name shows all the info from the avatar-area.
