Skadi now offers styles in both solid and liquid versions.

To change between styles, go to User CP > Edit Options, and under Miscellaneous options find "Forum Skin"; or simply scroll down to the bottom where it says "Quick Style Chooser".
The difference between a solid style and a liquid one is the fact that a solid style always has 800px width, regardless of the size of your browser window while a liquid style changes in width according to the width of your browser window.

You now can also change the way the postbit is displayed. The postbit is the area where your avatar, registration date, profile details (gender, age, tribe etc.) and reputation/report bad post options are displayed. So far the postbit has always been displayed on the left. Now you can choose to have it displayed on top instead (see 1st screenshot attached (http://forums.skadi.net/attachment.php?attachmentid=49598&stc=1&d=1137818943)). To change your postbit options, go to User CP > Edit Options and find "Postbit Template Selection" (see 2nd screenshot (http://forums.skadi.net/attachment.php?attachmentid=49599&stc=1&d=1137818944)). If you have any questions, feel free to ask here.

Hi, It's just as from today that I can't see the rep. point anymore of posters on a thread. May I ask why it is done?

Technical reasons. If a member -- like you can see in my current postbit -- chooses to hide the green rep bar, the reputation text would still be displayed.

I'd have to go through the docs to find the variable for a conditional. In the meantime, the text display is completely switched off. Maybe we'll also leave it off, as the text just extends the postbit without having much practical value for members.
