I actually made another layout! It's been more than a year, geez. Long story short, I was hit by some pretty hefty IRL problems and it killed off my creativity, big time. I hope this means the end of that era and a return to regular layout updates!

This layout was actually created a few months ago for my personal journal, and now I've finally taken the time to refine the code for public consumption. :) I'm super rusty so yeah, do let me know if any bugs pop up. It is designed for a widescreen monitor, so I wouldn't recommend using it if you're still using a monitor from 1997. :P

Garrrruuuuusssss ♥

EDIT: Found the first bug! If the userpic is waaaaaaay off to the right, check under the newly-added "Display" heading in the instructions below.

EDIT 2: Added a fix for the same problem in the comment pages.

EDIT 3: Made the comment username font match up with the one used on the friend page usernames. Yeah you can tell I coded the comment pages in a hurry.
