 I like the default theme simply because all of the ajax coding and what
 not functions smoothly, the design isn't terribly bad and in theory is a
 pretty minimal design that shouldn't take much for people to customize,
 but the way it is coded is....... I've never seen anything like it.

 Basically every single Wordpress theme and website in general that has a
 sidebar uses something like....

 #page {width: 1000px; margin: 0 auto;}
 #content {width: 700px; float: left}
 #sidebar {width: 300px; float: left}

 or whatever width or min-width/max-width you want to use, and that's it,
 very simple. Buddypress Template even suggests this. This would make it a
 piece of cake to customize. Right now I wouldn't even know where to begin
 to just make the sidebar wider or narrower, let alone anything advanced.
