Is there someone who needs to change something because it can be changed? Gnah...

Why a menu? There is enough space on top of the osm.org page for the old list of links. Direct access, less clicks, no new user guides needed.

thanks, awesome! Loosing functionality, again... The page is not intended to be usable, right? Just needs to look(!) good. I am not on a mobile device, what should I do with all the empty space?

by the way: newbies may not even see the user links now. They also may no see that they have new messages since there is just a number beneath the user name. Before there was a number beneath "inbox". And they at least saw that there is an inbox.

[http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/File:Browsing.png directly accessible user links] in the space which is available anyway.

http://www.mapbox.com/blog/improving-openstreetmap-dot-org/ "more functionality in a smaller, nicer looking package." Where is the "more functionality"?!

Could someone please give me at least a JavaScript patch which expands that menu to the classical horizontal list of links?

Still no explanation why we need to loose functionality just for having a compact menu which is not needed as there is enough space.

Spamming the developers is certainly not the right way to get what you want. You've made your point, we've decided to move forward instead of backwards. We welcome patches.

I did not spam anyone. I did only add comments here.

Patches? Is a revert that hard?

I've tried to add "display: inline;" to the ul and li css, but had no success ...

Yeay, now even the help and wiki link are hidden behind a sub menu. And the map link is ... for those who know ... the osm logo. I love how things get better. ;-)
