That sounds un-intuitive, and seems to go against
the whole “easier to do/use” bit. Why do the buttons suddenly need to be combined, again?
Agreed. The metabar ending in the middle of nowhere doesn’t fit with the rest of the site layout; everything either ends in the middle (for the left aligned layout), or it’s full width. The metabar is just this horrid thing that ends in no particular spot.
As I mentioned earlier, a full width metabar would not only be more consistent
across images, but it’d also look nicer, and fit with the rest of the site. Y’know, like how the old layout did
In regards to the tags: Why do they suddenly need to be constrained? There was nothing wrong with them being full width. They were easier to read when full width, and it took less effort to get down to the comments section. Now, with them being constrained, images such as the Community Collaborations
take that much more effort to get down to the comments, because suddenly the wall of tags is about twice as long as it was.
I really don’t see why the
button needs an icon, but that is far less distracting than the mess that the current metabar is in, so I guess it’s okay.
One final thing: Has the button spacing on the metabar been changed, or is it still that awful thing where it’s three groups of buttons? Because I’m seeing the latter, even after a hard refresh (ctrl + shift + R), and I don’t know whether that’s because it’s my end, or the site’s.
