Ideas

Dreams of the Quill Version 7, “Az,” brings us closer to our eponymous quill than any previous layout. Flowing downward from the quill, our content unfurls in a scroll laid against the crumbling tiles of a 2012pocalypse. More than in any previous layout, simplicity and readability were our goals. Single-post pages dampen the sidebars, making the text come forward. At the bottom of each page, a bird takes to the skies, ready to bring you back to the top. Comment threads have never been so clear; our content indices never so organized. We hope you enjoy the new DotQ as much as we do.

Thank you.
