0. Overall, the new site is great. Some of the threads now turn into valuable little mini-blogs or discussion pages on a specialized topic.

1. I tend to agree with Kasper. The site layout looks a bit too cluttered to me, with all these boxes of votes, views and response counts in different colours, breathless reporting of recent locations, bold face subject headers and what not. Of course, these things are a matter of taste, although I am sure there also now lots of people who approach this topic scientifically and rationally.

2. I agree that “LATEST” and “OPEN” could be more prominent (and “Messages” less so). It took me a great while to discover them (cf. point 1.)

Best wishes
