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.
I've never understood rating posts. It's zero indication of quality and only one that someone else agrees or disagrees with. So you agree with it or not, so what? A poll function would be far more useful.
