I like the way the page flows and highlights the sections. My only suggestion is to left-justify the headings in the forums section at the end of the newsletter. With centered headings it difficult to look down the list.

Thanks Steve for your editorials I find them informative and encouraging.

Glad that everyone at the ranch is fine.

The featured contents should be put back at the top of the letter so that a summary is immediately viewable.

Sorry, it's too small for me! I have a large screen and it isn't a pleasant reading experience. I don't intend to read it on my mobile phone so it could be a bit wider. Just my opinion and taste. At the end the content counts and that is still good!:-D

On my screen, approximately 2/3 of the width is white. Why all the wasted space? I don't do my development on a mobile device, and don't read this website on one either. What's wrong with letting the content size according to the space available?

With the new narrower format, I end up scrolling forever.
I have a wide screen monitor so why waste all the screen real estate with white space?
I don't intend to view this on a mobile device.

I'd rather have the wider format back.

+1

Also, the width of the original would scale to the available display width, where the new one doesn't.

Much better if these two issues are fixed.

IMHO The immediate visual effect is clean and fresh. Putting the above mentioned improvements in would make a good thing better though.

The exercise, I suppose, is to maximize the total happiness of the site experience... It is important to try and please everyone but it isn't just about that. Visual impairments (e.g.) can be a real barrier.

What about being able to choose from a set of "skins"?
