What Do You Think of Our Face Lift?

Hey gang -

What do you think of our front page facelift? We have a new site-wide font, a slightly new layout on the front page that removes some photos to shorten load times, and... for the first time since we launched as TBP, the writer's photo isn't on the front page next to their post. Instead it's a preview of the photo inside the post.

We also have a question for you. The You Gotta See This has been a sidebar feature since we launched as Bilerico Project. Since the video is on the front page with all text there though, we can't track how many people are actually watching the video. We know people watch it in the RSS feed, but it's just like every other post in that format - it's in a list with every other post. Did you watch it on the front page? Or did you click through from Facebook or RSS feeds? Does it matter that it's not separate any longer? Does it help that the video will now be full sized instead of smaller?

We moved the Quote of the Day out of it's own spot further down the page and put it in the main column as well. We've marked it in the main column with a special graphic. This has also been a regular sidebar item since we launched, but we feel strongly that it'll allow more people to see it this way.

So whattaya think? Do you like it?
