Please redesign some of this forum

Can’t Mcneel remove most of the icons? I really find them useless and distracting, avatars are wasted space let’s be mature and remove avatars from this forum.
Please also remove:
Participants, posts, likes, views and activity, this is all useless.
Having to open each thread in a window where we scroll down is hardly effective. If you really want to make this forum rock please remove all this needless fluff. I don’t see why we have to have all those icons under each reply as well. I appreciate your hard work on this and I hope you guys take this seriously, as I still think discourse is not an improvement in usability over the newsgroup.

Thanks I hope this place can be made nice and user-friendly.

I moved 2 posts to a new topic: Alternate Styling for Discourse
