To illustrate my personal opinions, I'm using the profile of Marguerite Bourgeoys.
Marguerite Bourgeoys (1620 - 1700)
---Comment: The addition of the dates is useful to collaborators and guest viewers, but is exceedingly distracting as implemented. I suggest right justifying the date data to separate it from the named individual.
Born April 17, 1620 in Troyes, Champagne, France
Daughter of Abraham Bourgeoys and Guillemette Garnier
Sister of Marguerite Grandjehan, Marguerite (Bourgeois) Le Preuvier and Marie Bourgeois
Died January 12, 1700 in Montréal
---Comment: I consider the utility of the former formatting used for the vital info section far superior to the new display. The introduction of bold text in these data fields is superfluous and exceedingly distracting. The data fields are in the same place on every profile, therefore viewers intuitively know where to look for the information, without the “nagging” of bold text.
Note: Paradoxically the vital info section, as it appears above, does look good. It is on the profile pages where the new formatting distracts from the overall appearance of the profile.
