I LOVE THE LAYOUT!

I agree, this is a huge improvement. It is very nice.I only have one complaint: Why all the dead space to the left and right? Why not just let the middle expand to fill the space? The actual article is pretty cramped.

That's Wordpress for you. You have to take into account everybody's screen resolution. As a web developer myself, I can tell you 90% (just a guess) of users don't like change. They grow accustom to a template and hate change so much that they're blind to the actual improvements. Not saying you are, just in general. Some people are still on the 800x600 resolution. But it's safe enough to use the 1024x768 size. Having a liquid template can be more of a headache than it's worth.

Alex, I don't know much about web design, and I don't know much about screen resolutions. But what I know is that the stuff I want to read is all jammed up in a small area with huge black bars to either side. Wasted space is.. wasted. I don't like the narrowness, and I don't like the inefficiency. It reminds me of people with lots of myspace comments that are all kept in a tiny column. I try to keep things efficient, and this website is not doing it for me anymore. Also, the new layout seems to take a little longer to load. Too many modules and stuff. Since the old one was basic, and just a lot of text and hyperlinks, it loaded quickly; not to mention that now every page is freakishly long. There is definitely a lot more suspense that I can't do anything about. I guess I can stick with the Stylish firefox addon for now, though.
