A few things to go over. The main image is a mockup of the new top page that I've been designing for a while - 3 column layout has to go!
The reason why its been 3 columns is because of legacy reasons - designed back in 2004. This design is not final and am looking for your feedback. If you have any mockup ideas, please feel free to post them.

And a few changes that have already been made are:-
The paginated pages can now be switched between grid and list. By default, news items and articles are displayed in grid format. This makes it easier to discover content without scrolling down through a bunch of text. Use the gray switch to flick between the two without a refresh - try it here. Is cookie based and remembers your preference.

Member news is now hidden by default. The reason is that I realized that there are not 2 but 3 different type of users:-
-regular users
-first time visitors
-new users

We have already discussed how the UI needs to look different for regular and first time users but folks who are getting used to the site after joining are still trying to find their way around - hiding the member news reduces the amount of content on the top page and helps them find their way around easier.

Use the links around the Member News title to show the news. Is cookie based.

And this is what the site used to look like many moons ago.
