New design[edit]

I have re-designed the presentation and structure of this page. I hope it is to everyone's liking. I tried to remove some of the repeated skeleton language, and implement a cleaner and slimmer design. Feedback, good, bad or ugly is requested and appreciated. Suggestions on the content itself are also requested and appreciated, as continued from last week's note.

I would like to thank all the editors who provided feedback in response to my note last week, and in particular Tony1. ÷seresin 08:37, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

The images are overlapping the side bar. It may just be me, though. - Peregrine Fisher (talk) 15:48, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
Nice work, seresin! Tony (talk) 17:42, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
Looks good to me. :) — Pretzels Hii! 10:46, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
I think the parts about the new admins/bureaucrats and the part about what FAs were on the main page last week need to be defined a little better. If "The following" at the first part of the sentence about the FAs from last week could be bolded, I think it would be easier to recognize right away that the two pieces aren't connected. Other than that, it looks great! Wilhelmina Will (talk) 18:52, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
White space: There's a large gap above the 12 pictures at the bottom, if the browser window is any narrower than 1200px. So 1024x768 and 1152x864 have problems. Perhaps we could put the 12 promoted pictures into 3 columns, instead of 4?
Headers: I agree with Wilhelmina - the top two sections need headers, or something. Perhaps "Promotion report" and "This week's TFAs" (to match the sidebar's TFP header)?
TFP background: Could we use some sort of neutral gray, instead of the "background color = #CC9" we currently have?
TFP captions: The captions and righthand edge of the images are getting cut off.
Hopethathelps. -- Quiddity (talk) 19:31, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
I don't have any problems viewing it. Looks good! - BanyanTree 11:13, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
I've taken a screenshot (File:Signpost-whitespace-tfp.jpg) to show the problems explained above. I'll have a go at fixing some of these, later, unless somebody else gets there first... -- Quiddity (talk) 19:21, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
