This is a post by a guest blogger

Sulz is 21 year old Chinese Malaysian college student. She blogs at her whim and fancy, which is almost every day, but mostly about her life and what issues that provoke her thoughts. Blogging is her only cathartic outlet for expression. Devours books like food and devours food like a non-eating-disorder person. You can read more of her writing at Bloggerdygook.

As a volunteer providing free support for WordPress.com in the Support Forums, every now and then it’s hard not to get frustrated with the new users who ask questions without taking the time to read or search the FAQ and past forum threads. On the other hand, you can understand somewhat the feeling of being overwhelmed by the mountain of information in past threads or the FAQ that it totally turns one off from searching for an answer.

a quick, open note to STUART BROWN and other capable and interested individuals.
if you use this theme, or even simply visit pages such as these that use this theme, do you find yourself automatically clicking the close box in the top left-hand corner of the post/page?

this is a thread for the ‘WordPress’ themes forum – if you are not quick i have already opened a topic there.

there is a debate to resolve about re-inventing the wheel and the usefulness of the idea of attempting to recreate the original Mac user experience in its entirety in ‘WordPress’. i’ve not completely worked out if i think it is a good idea myself – i simply thought that the retro design of this theme would be visually appealing – and then i discovered that Mr. Brown had already implemented the idea with a great deal of success.
i am presently blogging with this theme to investigate the possibilities, and found myself constantly trying to close the post ‘window’ by clicking the close box.
i do know that many learned textbooks have been produced on the Graphical User Interface – a new topic in computing and the world in the late 1970s/early 1980s. Now, with Mac OS X(bigcat), Windows Vista, et al. the fine details are overtaking the concept and the problems of memory, speed of access, interconnection and so forth dominate thought in computer science; ease of use is almost taken for granted and we are all assumed to have learnt the language of interaction. this is a simply an open question, although it is not just about mystery meat navigation.
‘WordPress’ themes seem to be platform independent and those that i have the pleasure of using are incredibly functional already. i only wonder if Stuart Brown or the theme thread moderators have any thoughts to add before i lose myself in historical research?
as always, any help or input, feedback, etc. is welcome.
