The new layout is good ( done 3 weeks ago), but many people made suggestions for improvement
=> put the social links buttons at the top or under the first ad in the right column
=> increase the size of the font or choose a clearer font.
see this thread for complete list of suggestions http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/127468
When will the layout be finalised? Thanks and Cheers
From the blog for the new design:
"Because this will be the first iteration of the new design, we plan to do a few weeks of testing afterward to see how the changes are received by HubPages’ readers. Consequently, the first version will not be permanent and we’ll likely be making refinements based on the data we collect after testing. We would also love to get your feedback on the new design, so make sure to share your thoughts in the announcement forum later this week!"
see this post for suggestions made by authors http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/127277
Just because a suggestion is made doesn't mean it will be implemented. HP's designers follow their own aesthetic tastes and are unlikely to make design changes based on hubbers' opinions of what looks good and bad. For example, just because some people want a bigger font doesn't mean HP's designers think it needs improvement. I wouldn't expect the font to change because you can increase text size with a browser anyway.
Most likely, any changes they make will be based on what increases ad revenue and what keeps readers on the page longer. HP asking for feedback is a courtesy but it's not an equal partnership here. I think they are more looking for suggestions on how to fix things that aren't working right, not our design input for things that are merely a matter of personal preference.

I'd be grateful for critique from the knowledgeable people here on this - it was a Squidoo lens and I'm not sure it translates well to Hubpages. Any suggestions for improvement are welcomed!http://paulward.hubpages.com/hub/joan-b … -bob-dylan

This is awful. The new sharing buttons are fine, and they were great on the side of the hub where they were very visible. Even at the bottom of the hub would be fine. But at the top? Our hubs are sure to get fewer shares with the sharing buttons in this location. How many readers are going to read...

I just joined this website today. My question is regarding the quality of the things I have posted, seeing as one thing I wrote seems to have been taken away... I am open to suggestions so I can get better at what I do, especially seeing as writing is something I would like to someday do full time....
