Should we remove or compress the left column on the blog?
We have a new blog (yay), and it comes with a new template (mostly yay).
The engineers among us have been staring at the left of the three columns on the blog, and wondering if that is the best amount of whitespace to use, while smushing all the content into the middle column.
See e.g. https://blog.torproject.org/blog/tor-0306-released-new-series-stable and scroll down a bit. Notice how you're now reading a narrow column of text, with plentiful whitespace on either side of it.
Maybe whoever designed this layout had a big screen resolution, and it worked better there.
I have no clue how this looks on mobile, but ... ok, actually I went to go check, and on ios safari it just shows me the middle column, and it pretends those left and right columns aren't there. Lucky mobile users. :)
I am adding the ux-team keyword in hopes that they can help us move forward. I know that "hey user experience people, can you help with layout, that's the same thing right" must drive you crazy, and I apologize in advance, but you're still our best hope here. :)
