I prefer the auto-adjust width and the "In this Issue" so I can go where I need easily. Too much scrolling needed, even though I always read the editorial first. The changes just aren't helpful to me.

Content is king; the rest follows.


Here there be dragons...,

I agree with the others - I'd put the links to articles back at the top. Also, it is extremely narrow meaning that there is a lot of scrolling. All that said, the newsletter is much more visually appealing.

Have to agree with others
- Format width should scale to the available display width - not a fan of scrolling on and on and on . . . .
- QUESTION OF THE DAY - like the shaded box; easier to read
- DATABASE PROS WHO NEED YOUR HELP should list SQL Server from newest to oldest

I think the new design sucks. I read each issue. I always reviewed the 'In this Issue' topics, and clicked through in for many topics. The wasted space on each email, forcing the user to scroll forever is a complete waste. I doubt I will continue receiving the email because I found value in the email beyond the editorial. To put the 'featured content' below the editorial, which were often repeated anyway, is a HUGE mistake.

If you want to follow MS, then fine, but would you follow them off the cliff as well? As a company, MS rarely leads. You produce one email, MS produces hundreds for all of their products, so conforming to a tight format makes sense because everyone can use the same format.

I think the new format sucks and devalues the SQLServerCentral.com experience.

The article links should be put back at the top so we can navigate to a desired topic. Otherwise, look/feel is fine.

I agree with others about it being too narrow. In the era of widescreens, too much white space and scrolling.

I like having the editorial first - that's what I want to read every day. Much easier to read this format on my bbr as well.
