User info feels a bit cluttered. If you ask me, I think displaying post/topic/follower count, points, and reputation isn't needed.

Didn't YCM have a ton of information on the side at one point? It was a bit strange, and yeah, this feels like it makes more sense in a person's profile than on the sidebar.

So here's what we can display if I list them then perhaps the site can come to some sort of mutual agreement on what we want.

Cover Photo, Topic Starter Badge, User Group, Secondary Group Images, User Rank, User ID, Topic Count, Topic per Day ratio, Post count, Post per day ratio, Reputation, Member of the Month wins, Birthday, Joined Date, Online Status, Last Activity (when last active), Timezone, Followers, Device (which is being used), Clubs, points and awards.

It is a long list and some of them are useful but obviously, there is a lot here.

Cover Photo

User Group

Secondary Group Images

User Rank

User ID (assuming this is the username)

Online Status

are the only necessary ones, and then Post Count/Reputation maybe? Don’t think anything else is needed in sidebar.

Pretty much entirely seconding this. If anything else, the Topic Starter one could be neat? But everything else doesn't seem useful enough to bother when they're more suited to profile than anything else.

Not sure why the topic starter is needed, wouldn't you know before you came to the topic? It's also at the top anyway, so seems pointless.

So it still is. That extra little reminder in certain cases seems like it'd be more useful than it probably is, I guess.

Eh, I guess it's fine, but it is the biggest item there from what I can see.

Just got on desktop. The profile banner that appears behind the profile picture definitely isn't needed. It just takes up space and only covers a line behind the profile picture leaving this huge white spot in like that U shape around it in my opinion, and it usually just ends up as clutter that gets squished/distorted due to the image not being the proper size ratio 99% of the time. If it was able to be toggled per-user for whether they want to show their own profile banner in the side image, that would be fine in my opinion if it could be left on off by default, because otherwise it kind of makes a lot of clutter when it usually distorts the images too because it squishes the images to that ratio and relies directly on the profile banner.

Group, Title, Post Count, Reputation, Status, and Points are the only needed text-fields in my opinion, and Post Count/Reputation/Points are the less necessary among them.

As for image wise, only the profile picture itself, not the banner, and the level icon or whatever (or any other custom group icon) would be needed in my opinion.

EDIT: Oh, and returning the Title to above the profile picture would be lovely. Would look nicer, and the way it is, some of the longer titles get pushed off the line (like mine for eg, and others too I've seen).
Between post count, reps, and points, I feel like post count is more relevant than reps and reps are more relevant than points.
Eg, add them in along that order, and take them off starting with points if it ends up taking too much space
 

Bottom line, I feel like only profile picture, the level stars, the group name, the title name (moved back to above profile picture), post count, and status are really necessary and the rest can just be seen through checking the profile itself.

Pretty much just something like this here (for those without custom usergroup images and those with respectively (screenshotted from Google Cache) :

Right, I've reverted the change, seems general consensus is that people prefer default.

Could you maybe move the level stars under the group name thing (eg, Administrators, Members, etc)?

Otherwise, everything looks great now. Thanks Ash!

Just made this change across all themes, stars now should be below the member group, as they did on YCM.

Not a worry.

I know this was requested so I've added a "My Activity" button.

I'll leave this open for anyone to use at the moment but obviously let's not abuse this feature! (Please 🙂 )
