I’ve been using Discourse every day for 3 years and there is a little something that has been bugging me from the very first day.
On the mobile view, when looking at a topic list, the avatar on the left is the avatar of the last user that replied, not the topic author:
And literally every time I open Discourse on mobile, my brain tries to tell me that the avatar on the left is the author avatar. 3 years and I still can’t be used to it.
Sure, we can customize Discourse at will, and @Steven made a cool mobile view that puts the avatar on the right (among other small changes).
I just added it to my forum and I intend to do it for my second forum. It just makes more sense to me.
But I’m just wondering if other people feel the same way about this avatar position (and maybe size?), if it has been discussed and if you plan to change the mobile view in the future (I’m aware that changing the design in such a way can harm many customized Discourse forums).
