Swapping the full and short positions. Short will be referred to on the button as “Tagless”. I’ll go back to a cookie-based or even JS storage-based solution if it turns out short is the common use case.  
I’d prefer to have statistics and thus to know if this is really the way to go, but unfortunately it’ll have to be experimental in nature.
 
Scratch that, we’ll leave it alone for the time being.

I am making an arbitrary decision here and keeping it short in the link with long in the dropdown.

I’m cool with that executive decision, but please don’t extend that to everything else that’s been brought up. It’s been a couple days since anything’s changed, and I know you said you were probably going to revisit the metabar after a week or so, but with things in their current state it’d be nice to go over what the game plan is.
 
From my understanding, artist credit is the next big priority, after which you’ll focus on UI tweaking, right? I didn’t want this dev comment to get lost in the shuffle after discussion of the view dropdown.

Yes. Artist credit is currently stalled for a bit for backend reasons, but the UI of it is essentially figured out. Screenshots will come soon.
 
In regards to future plans and that post: 1 is rather annoying, I don’t think we have a generic class right now to kill on limited desktop widths. 2 will probably be resolved by a complete rethink of styling of links on headers. 3 is intentional.

What’s the reasoning for having the Description visible even when it’s empty?  
Also: Is returning the header bar to the description for the edit icon and “Description” text on the “to do” list?

I’m good with the description being visible when empty for OP’s purposes - gives a place for that edit button - but for everyone else it does feel vestigial.
 
Putting the “Description” header back on would also be a good thing, but would also exacerbate the problem of an empty description taking up space. I think, then, that the empty description might just be to reinforce that space as being where to find the description, which is too indirect for my liking. That is, you either know that’s where the description would be, or you have a description with no label. I would much prefer the description to have a title when it is visible, and hidden any other time, as you suggest.

I can’t really code anything for the site at the moment. Could you at least add unique classnames to the Download/DS/View/VS links so that I can make a userscript to restore them to what was the default for over six years?

I can’t recall, but was it hidden when empty for everyone but the staff and uploader?
 
I’ve essentially zero knowledge about all the code details behind the recent changes, so if there’s some technical aspect for why the Description needs to stay all the time, then that’s just how it has to be.  
Or even just keeping it there so there isn’t an appearing/disappearing UI element is fair enough too.
 
My only big issue with it personally is the magical flying Edit button. Dang thing is always at the end of whatever text is in the description. So it floats around from image to image. Very annoying to update descriptions.  
That’s my main reason for wanting the description header back.

Less view logic (note that we needed to show description header either if there was one or if you were capable of editing), shows people that description exists as it’s rather underused right now, and allows getting rid of the big header we had that just served to indicate that area was used for descriptions.
 
Edit button I think will need moving to the front.

I’m pretty confident that they are going to fix that last issue, it’s just not high on the agenda given all the other things they’re working on (in the test environment) that they’d need to get working before they move on to that.
 
It’s a five-minute fix, but to do it they’d either need to make the artist credit thing stable first or have some other dev make the fix - which then results in a forked history and would require the first dev to make a git pull which hopefully doesn’t mess up anything he was doing.
 
In this case, I don’t think it should, so long as all they do is delete the line of CSS causing that alignment. They can address the weird grouping later.

We’ll be doing a bit more testing as far as width, things shouldn’t be wrapping.
 
@Lead Pie  
Less fancy logic in views is very good because it improves performance and makes maintenance easier. In general, complication is bad. They are I think colored slightly differently than before.
 
 
Now, something that hasn’t been previously mentioned is user links. For reasons of performance in dealing with artist credit, and improve our database setup, they’re going to change a little. The current plan is one tag per user link, but allowing duplicates as far as the actual link part of the user link (so you’d have one user link for every tag specific you). Most user links are only 1 or 2 tags anyways, so it isn’t a big change, but it will look slightly different on user pages when you’ve got multiple tags.  
User links will also be receiving some UI changes to make it a little more intuitive to create them.

So, Pencils does Anon’s Magic Pie Adventure or something like that, so he (should) have a user link with some URL and then both the comic tag and his artist tag. This would be changed to two user links, both with that URL, one with his artist tag and one with the comic tag; the only place this would be noticible as a difference is on his user page, as the user links would be listed one after the other as opposed to there just being one previously.
