DemostiX is right - any weight in or on the hammock will change the way it looks. If you are judging the proper suspension by appearance just be sure you have it always set up the same way each time before starting - UG on or off, sleeping gear in or out, etc.
I haven't used a ridgeline, but I suspect that the ridgeline length also changes with different setups.
Also, DemostiX recommendation to use shock cord at the ends to keep the netting taut is also helpful. When hung to my liking, the net is loose when empty - nicely tentioned when loaded. But if I am in the hammock and sit up to reach something, the netting loosens and falls on my head. The shock cords at the ends keep that from happening. I leave the shockcords disconnected while setting my suspension - then attach them afterwards.
