New Website Layout

I'm not a fan of the new layout.  I liked having all categories viewable on the homepage, and I found it to be user friendly for my daily visit to the site.
Not a fan, Just sayin'........

Yes, the cover is very very arduino heavy. You would think they would sort of mix it up with different themes, but no, they seem to be saying that this is the focus they want you to have when coming here.... Like, they want to narrow the focus of the whole site to just that

Electronics is great and all, but it's an expensive, finicky, twiddly hobby that requires a great deal of time, education and skill. But it's the main thing that gets respect these days. In order to prove you are smart, you have to show people the robot you built. For me, it is too narrow. A geek cliche. Been there done that, got a few t-shirts. Bandwagon joined, jumped off of again in favor of a wider range of creativity. I'm not bashing electronics really, just, well. gee, I guess I am.

Looks like they changed it up a little. That's cool. Thank you.

I like that I have met everybody in those photos, even the hands.

I guess so, but the net effect for me is it's kind of cliquish and elitist. Here's yet another plug if you weren't tired enough of these personalities yet for our very small group of friends/contributors/employees we are trying to make famous.

My remark is cynical and snarky, and I apologize in advance. Yet it is also a true user experience.
very well put .....

I get you. I guess it's easier to do a banner like that with people nearby, though, to get photos that are "right" for the proportions.

There are now quite a few Featured Authors, now, but quite a few of their "library" images wouldn't look right on a banner like that (have you seen mine?!).

Yes.... who could forget yours? {still trying to...}

Let me at least say something positive, I think the new look is very pretty and I appreciate the updated message that they are not going 100% electronics (as yet).
