      Anyone going say why they like the new design? It helps to know why incase anything else in time needs editing.

      I think it looks great graphically and it doesn't appear to take up much more room on the page. Given this is simply for the into page I think it works well.

        Gave the new design a test drive, while it does have a more graphical look to it in terms of having a persons avatar and a general image for each board. I still prefer the old layout, only because I'm more used to having less graphical things. Less is more, course that's just my take.

        I've switched to the other. But I'm going to let it run for awhile before I form an opinon about it. :)

        I like the look of the new one better. Just wondering if Canadians will be upset there is only a US flag though. :)

        I have made some small edits to it like rounding a few corners and that so its not as blocky feeling.

        I voted the old one.

        In the new style I like the large icons dividing the catagories. It makes it easy to find what catagory you want. And I like the new large user icon of the last one that posted.

        But the old way was easier to read. My eye has to jump around more to scan what's new. And before it was quicker.

        If you can just add the icons to the older one, for me I think that would be the best of both worlds. instead of organizing with 2x3 blocks, if you went with rows like you had before with big icons, that would be the best in my humble opinion.

        Though I noticed I'm in the minority here. So I'll be good with whatever the rest of you chooses.
        :)
