Inspired by the discussion Exactly which features of SFF.SE's magnificent theme will we be losing? I want to ask which features WorldBuilding.SE will lose specifically. The reason I ask basically the same question here again is that I remember that WorldBuilding was often mentioned as one of the "Cadillac" sites with an extensive design that will lose quite a bit more than many other sites. And there is already quite a lot that all the sites will lose. To cite the SFF post I linked:

We will probably be losing our voting buttons, fave button, possibly our use of Orbitron font, and reduced color/header image support.

More details can be seen in the Meta.SE discussion Left nav, responsive design, and theming next steps, but I have the same questions as @CreationEdge on SFF.SE:

Can we get a breakdown of what exactly we'll be losing? Or a time-frame on when we'll be able to see a development version of what we'll be losing?

Especially a little comment in the answer from @JourneymanGeek prompted me to wonder about the changes that will be relevant for this site:

and cough I know you guys will keep the worldbuilding robot, right?

What will happen to Slartibotfast and Pandora (also known as May Suthers)?

Well, looks like they removed the robot and the lady.

There's a answer on MSE that mentions and asks for their return and I strongly recommend y'all to make your voices heard on the subject by voting appropriately
