Can we unclutter Codidact in these six areas? [closed]

This discussion has been split into the following posts:
- Enlarge font size for number of answers?
- Streamline the top? Move Meta to the top row?
- Align Right "last activity" phrase?
- Move posted dated box to white space to the left of poster information?
I'm unqualified in user design or experience, but Codidact just feels too cluttered compared to S.E — no offense! Here are my reasons by comparing two identical subject websites.
The top of S.E. is much sprucer — just the logo. But Codidact has two additional rows — at least merge these rows?
Why don't we align the "last activity" right? Then we just read down the same column. Our eyes won't have to zigzag.
Codidact must distinguish between what's relevant and irrelevant with text size. The number of answers must be indicated bigger like S.E. It can't have the size as less relevant text like last activity detail.
Does anyone know how to start the numbering at 4 for my points beneath? Kindly edit this if you do. You don't have to ask me for consent.
I care more about linked and related questions on the right, not Codidact's current ads for Challenges.
Both Codidact and S.E. waste that white space. Why not put the posted date box "posted 3 months ago" in that white space?
I care more about a user's reputation than the other numbers. See my point 3 — can you enlarge the text for reputation? S.E. is right not to show all the other numbers shown by Codidact, like number of comments, edits, etc — all this isn't relevant and just clutters the User Interface.
