Out of the Blue

Some very preliminary talks have taken place about doing some tweaking to the design here, something I like to consider every ten years or so, whether it seems needed or not. Things I would like to accomplish include turning the rarely used side menu to drop-down top menu, consolidating all the other side-content and ads into a single side column, and getting the site to work a little better on smartphones. While change can be jarring, I think all that can be accomplished without significantly harming the look and feel of the site, while still making it a bit less clunky. History suggests that further progress on such an undertaking will be slow (if not nonexistent), so there should be adequate time to offer feedback on the plan. Feel free to chime in.

Out of curiosity, why wouldn't you want thumbs down? Are we playing T-Ball here , or is this Facebook where you can 'only like something?

Probably worried his posts will disappear below the low score comment threshold.

There are ways to implement it without penalizing people for having an unpopular opinion, Arstechnica does that well I've noticed. You can have a lot of downvotes but still pop up near the top.
