    And here is the comments form that I have so far.

    Why is the text on the right? Might end up being a weird UI problem later on.

    Follows a convention for image captions and comment headers throughout the rest of the page. I had them on the left in a previous draft, and this just seemed to work better.

    Think it will be confusing?

    Hey Matt, here's an idea: how about making comment textarea the first element in the comment form?

    Think of it this way: reader clicks on the "comment" button/link, it takes them to the comment form, and they can immediately fill the comment field out with what's at the top of their minds.

    They are not distracted with name, email and website fields, they are not exposed to losing their hot-new-fresh comment they just came up with.

    After all, the most important part of a comment is the comment itself, not the name/email/website of its author.

    Hi Michal. Interesting thought. I've definitely given it some consideration. Not sure that I've made a decision yet, but it's definitely something to think about! Thanks for the creative thought.

    Hmm I guess I would have to see the whole site to tell if it's confusing or not. I'm liking the new theme though. Going to be easier to read as white text on a black bkg like it is now is tough to read :o

    Hey Amber. Yeah, I'll hopefully be having a test site available soon so that a few choice people like you can go check it out and see everything working together.

    Glad you like the look of the new design though. I'm looking forward to getting it live.
