The push was a little chaotic and happened a little earlier than scheduled, but we're fixing the biggest issues as we speak.
If you have any specific problem with the new design, bring it up, if you're just QQing about changes just for the sake of complaining about something new, I'm not sure I can help but Doomscream will give you a hug on his free time.
It's probably just cause you're not used to it...anyway, the only problem I have about the new layout is that the emoticon/little icons (share buttons on bottin of page) doesn't show and if I want to type in the search bar, the search bar disappears...dunno if it's only me. O and do we now just have one picture your your avatar/profile pic?
I really like the new layout, very clean and simple.
Good work here, keeping elements of the old one, with a good refresh. My only question, as a professional webdesigner is on the 1000+ px width grid. It's a bit strange, but I see other websites using grids like this one (like eurogamer with their new design for example). So I'm very curious to know, how many columns do you use here ? Does it feel more flexible than the good ol' 960px grid ?
