Hmmm. It's different, yet some things are the same. I'm trying to figure out if I like the crinkly paper lefthand border, and the spraycan contrast at top left. I'll sleep on it.

So the thing that really stands out for me, though, is that the front-end posts are a little too short, now. Maybe it's one of those editorial decisions, but I liked the old short paragraph approach.

One thing I really do like, though, is how all the posts on the front page say who made them. I have my fave writers at Giz, and it makes it much easier to see who did what. In the old system, attribution on the front page was spotty.

As for another 'likey', I think having older headlines at the bottom is great. Sometimes I can't check the page but a couple times a week, and it'll be easier to spot the posts I haven't seen.

Finally, showing a last comment next to each story's 'MORE>>' doesn't really add much. It's nice and everything, but I'm never going to click through to 'read more' based on what the last comment was.

Anyhow, I can see that there are a lot of commenters that don't likey so much, and my guess is that's just part of not being able to please everyone. I'll still read, and still comment, but it will feel kinda different for awhile.
