could someone translate this into english
As far as a script goes, the lines beneath your name over there on the right are hard to tell apart, so hiding the lines with pictures of medals without hiding, say, the location line is not so easy to do.
Does that mean it's not gonna happen or do you see some way to do it?
Well, I guess the question is how to change it without removing the existing functionality that some users may prefer. Do you have any suggestions as to how it might look? Two buttons, "Collapse Medals" and "Collapse All"? Perhaps a third, "Collapse Text"?
The only thing I would like to collapse are the medals, those are the ones that take up space depending on the user, making posts to have a lot of blank space unnecessarily.
So maybe when you put Small Avatars On that's the only thing that would be collapsed, I don't see the need to collapse the rest. Or maybe the Small Avatars Option could have 3 possible settings: Normal, Small and Tiny.
As you say the reason to hide the text as well as the medals is because it's easier to code, as they come together.
The ones that take up space are the medals, specially with some users, make threads unnecessarily longer, the text doesn't. And the text is useful.
