Images are fine if they contribute to the story, but to use an image which is only vaguely related to the story seems unnessecary. Maybe images should be used when it makes sense to, and just have nothing otherwise.

I voted none, but i am not against having images or icons. The great thing about having icons is that you are able to quickly notice the category of the story, which is great when you're scrolling through the page.

And I just looked over the images currently on the main page, decided that most did not contribute at all and so removed them from the page. Much better.
(Using the Quickstyle extension for Safari, if you want to know.)

Err, no need to resort to a browser extension to remove the images. The site allows you to pick "None" for story image type on the settings page.

Oh, that's nice, thank you.

Could we also get a setting for the font size of articles and comments? While I can read the current size - and I think is plenty big enough for the interface (menus etc.) - a slightly larger font for the actual content feels a bit more comfortable.

In addition I did shrink the width of the right column a bit, since I felt it takes up too much space in comparison to the articles/comments section. So I guess I'll keep using the extension for now. ;)
