By 'postbit', Kneel is referring to the layout of each post. Here on TalkParrots, we are currently using the standard postbit, where the user's information is displayed above each post. However, we have the option of switching to postbit_legacy, where the user's information is to the left side of each post. Here is an example picture of postbit_legacy:

Some people prefer the legacy because it makes it easier to read a thread of several posts without interruption by the postbit.

I kind of like the postbit a little better because, to me, it's a little visually cleaner. But it doesn't really affect the ease of use for me

Oh boy do I ever feel stupid.

Okay so I just checked it out, not that I didn't believe you Nick, and you are right!
So I guess since I never even noticed the difference, I must not have a preference.

I like how it is right now, it seperates the posts better.
