I've been lurking around [livejournal.com profile] news/[livejournal.com profile] lj_design/[livejournal.com profile] lj_releases, hoping for any news that the userpic has been dragged back down to the bottom by sheer force of gravity, if nothing else. I even made a couple of comments saying that having the userpic at the top seriously disrupts my workflow (I tried to stop myself, honestly I did).

Then I realized that I didn't need to wait for the powers that be to change their minds; I could work on my own solution. So in between studying for my polsci long test and studying for my theo quiz, I tried my hand at modifying update.bml and I came up what has to be the world's ugliest update.bml page ever. And it only really works for me because I don't think that anyone else wants to lose their music and location fields, or to have their mood icon preview and userpic preview side by side.

But see, I don't care! AHAHAHA.

I have a list of tags! I can change my icon without having to scroll up! Everything that I need is right where I need it, and life is good.

Welcome to my world, my personally tweaked update.bml. Bless your ugly little Greasemonkied face heart.

I could move the music and location fields to the right instead of removing them entirely, but right now that's more trouble than it's worth, considering that I don't ever use them. For me, they're icing on the pudding -- that is to say, don't like, don't use, don't need.

Oh and I still feel guilty over the screenscraping involved in fetching those tags so still not making the (tag-related) code public until I've added even a tiny measure against overdoing that. Unless I don't need to. Gah! Help!
