User names above or below the avatars? (Poll)

Surprisingly controversial. Below actually seems to be winning slightly.

Edit: Not so much anymore.

This is why democracy is a myth. You ask the cattle to vote for something - the result will always be wrong. Thankfully democracy is purely decorative in the entire world and the cattle is never even given a real choice in the first place.

The name below forces one's mind to focus on the avatar first instead of the name. Perhaps that's easier for less literate people: Pictures are easier to remember.

I think the username font is too small, and it may be hard to read for some. Also, what if the reader is reclining at a 45 degree angle? this theme's clear preference for cartesian oritentation is orthogonal to providing good readability.

Good thing the Codex was never a democracy but a benevolent dictatorship at best.

Still not sure what this obvious fact has to do with my comment?

She's trying to motivate you to care about user opinion, especially when it can be demonstrated to fall in a majority view. Such as with... a poll.

Fuck off with the Vanician magic system. It is shit. Go fuck yourself idiot. There is a reason why games have gone to a cooldown system, because it is better. If the Vanician system was better then it would be universally used today, but it isn't. Does Diablo Immortal use the Vanician magic system? No! Vanician magic system is slow, it is unweildy, it takes time away from the play to micromanage skills that exist on their magic bar. Even Diablo 2 doesn't use the D&D system.

Your Mind
Keep users happy = listen to what users want = active and popular forum = more bucks for DU
That's what we're doing around here, yes. But it still never has been a democracy. For the record, I don't care either way about the user names because the position above or below has no consequences on anything beyond personal preference (if any). So it's purely cosmetic.

So why not simply do what the majority wants? I also think that it is better usability to have the username on top.
