If they had different icons for different types of post, they could have a little WIT icon for reviews… preserving a little history while still keeping the all important SEO of having the word ‘review’ in text.

I’m trying to use the main page, and then flipping to the latest page to see if I missed anything.
So far, after a day or two, the new design is mostly working well. Basically, everything that happens in a day on the Latest page is also available in the top 2 sections of the new main page.
The only ones I’m ‘missing’ are the ones in the top 2 sections that don’t have images. (ie: the ones on the far right. )
For example, I kinda skipped the ‘Evil Genius 2’ news today, despite it being in both sections, because it didn’t have an image in either, and not having an image makes it easier to skim over.
I’m also finding scanning the first section a bit tricky because the right column articles aren’t really horizontally aligned with the left column ones, so it’s a bit hard to know where your eyes should flow.
So I’d recommend getting rid of the text only articles on the right for the first 2 sections.
Make all the right ones in the first section have images, and try to line them up horizontally (may be tricky in the css, as the items on the right aren’t a fixed height. ).
Have 2 or 3 rows of articles with pics for the news section.
Oh, and move the comment box to the bottom!
Oh, and I still think you should move the Features section up the page a fair bit!
This probably works fine if you view the site on a mobile device, but it doesn’t seem to work if you resize the window on a desktop.
My work just got new super-wide monitors and tbh they’re far too wide for most websites, but I can drag the browser to the side and have it take up half the screen.
This works on the forum, for example, but not on the main site.
I’m wondering why it doesn’t just use responsive css with media queries.
