Just found some minor cruddery that I missed before we released the thing. You get that.
/* the small stats */
margin: 0 0 0.5em 0;
is teh bat poo. Much better like this:
margin: -28px 0 0.5em 0;
To keep the newsfader sorted you'll also need to add a clear: both; there:
/* the newsfader */
margin: 0 2px;
I'd also suggest adding a line break to the BoardIndex.template.php markup in #index_common_stats. The reason is that it's much more tolerant when using larger-than-default font sizes on a 1024 screen. You can go up to 300% of default without the stats overlapping the linktree. Without the line break things start getting messy at 175%. Having the text stacked to two lines still looks fine at default font sizes IMO. I'd say it's arguably neater.
