Requesting feedback and testing, please :)

Hi all! I'm working on a new style and I'm at a point where I want to show it to people and get some feedback. :) It has not been thoroughly tested --far less than usual actually-- so let me know if you spot some issues.

So all I did was a preview on it and ...

The fruit butters went well. I poked at it a little bit more and I'm not seeing any buggy bits. (I am really really looking forward to this one.)

I have just installed it. So far one thing has cropped up immediately, the images aren't loading. I'll use it and see what else, if any, pops up. Lovely layout.

I figured out the problem. My connection is extremely slow, so the images loaded about half an hour later.

Activated on my journal, will play around with it. It looks nice! :)

Oh, very pretty! I love round userpics. It's just a cool little touch.

I only have one tiny quibble, and it's probably a personal thing more than anything else. The tiny icon before a subject line, on skimming, I kept thinking that they were access-lock icons, which was weird to me because I don't lock anything. I would probably move them to the beginning of the line, before the date.

But other than that, looks nice!

Hmmm. I took a second look at it, since I do have a couple of locked "note to self" entries hidden away. I see what you mean. That's not as confusing as it was at first to me. I think what threw me was that the "sticky entry" star appears just to the right of the little squirrel, so they blended together. :)

Hmmm, yeah, I like that a little better. It helps me 'read' the squirrel as a divider between site/system data and user-entered data, instead of as a system icon. That works!
