The new design is good but it could be improved with larger text for the article and a clearer font that is easier to read.
These sites have a similar layout but with better text (not an exhaustive list)

Also there is a lot of wasted white space between the two columns (text and ads). The text could easily run further to the right. The font used could be improved.
I agree janderson. What those 3 sites you've cited also have is one or more horizontal lines (dividers) at the top of the articles to give them a more ordered, professional look. The new HP layout looks too chaotic and disordered; as if the title, profile box, author attribution, and text have all been stuck on the page in seemingly random positions.
How peculiar, I'm getting a message that no one has posted in this thread for two months!
Anyhow, I see what you mean. Even the SMH link, which has fairly small text, has a clearer font.
I am seeing strange things also in the forums tonight. I just visited one thread only 40 hours old with the last post two hours ago and it is "closed to reply." Not sure how that happened there. I am showing on this thread that "0" have responded, yet you are "1" and "1" should be reflected.

I have written all my hubs with my font size set to 22 and wonder now that with a more normal size they will not have the neat appearance that I designed into them.Can I get a few opinions on the appearance of this hub, along with the font size you are using on your browser? I realize that...

Currently we only have blue and grey for the background of text and amazon boxes. I'm sure people would appreciate a larger range! I have one hub in particular that could benefit from a soft red background on some text boxes.

I'd love to have the ability to use some advanced HTML editing in text modules; or at least have the ability for some advanced options such as:-choosing the fonts - these could be limited to web safe fonts.-choosing the color of the background and the color of the font.-Adding background graphics...
