    That would be great, 'cos I really don't like it. It's giving me a headache trying to get where I want to go.

    That's not a possibility unfortunately.

    It think it's fine. The difference is minimal. I had to figure out where the 3rd column was. I didn't notice a difference until the question was posed.

    Weren't the blogs and headlines available on the bottom of the right column previously? I'm pretty sure the blogs were. I think that solution made sense.

    As someone who develops websites, anything you put in that left column instantly is instantly perceived as more important. So things that you'd like to emphasize should go there.

    Meanwhile, if we must have headlines here, can we control the ALL CAPS setting? So many headlines in all caps becomes hard to read and is distracting from the rest of the page.

    That's my 2 cents.

    The blogs have been.

    Yep.

    That's on the list of revisions to make.

    That's my 2 cents.

    Okay. That's the question I was going to ask.

    I fell into the "I really like it" category. But I don't feel strongly about it.

    As if there probably wasn't enough confusion.

    Re: 3 Column Layout?

    i find it very crowded and on long posts that would be a real nagging thing that would annoy me...

    A little too cramped for me.

    But I'm sure my eyes would adjust if more people want to keep it.

    Re: 3 Column Layout?

    Actually, I like the narrower field for posts. The shorter line lengths are much easier to read. I'd rather scroll a little more than lose my focus midway through a sentence.

    Add another column!

    Re: 3 Column Layout?

    I like the new look, especially the headlines. I also like how I can see the blogs without having to scroll down to the bottom of the page. Sometimes I forget to look, so now I can easily see when a new blog has been posted.

    Re: 3 Column Layout?

    One thought. Why don't you put the recent posts column on the left and the other stuff on the right. Would that look better? It would work for me.

    Oh. Not me. My eye immediately goes to the right when I sign on. I hope we can keep something the same.
