I'm thinking since there's a ton of space on either side of the ticket (due to fixed width & wide-scale usage of widescreen monitors), we might as well use it, maybe with a floating sidebar, that moves when you scroll.
EDIT: Sigh.. Buggy forums. First attempt at uploading that mockup it error'd saying it couldn't upload images over 1GB. So I tried again.. So there's 2 copies of the same image.. And I can't delete the 2nd.
Put a sidebar back in on the issue tickets for projects, please.
These drop downs with everything you can change all in different places is stupid, and takes longer to interact with the tickets with having to scroll multiple times to find everything you need. Put all the stuff back into the sidebar in 1 place.
