That might seems like ranting more than a constructive criticism, but I have a hard time getting into the forum, and getting the old articles. I know there is the link at the top of the page, but for some reasons, I never get used to top links, and always seek the right/left menu. For that purpose, might I suggest that we see some kind of menu back on the right side. I know a lot of effort has been put into redesigning the site's layout, and it is very good! I like the way engine and articles at the top of the page works, but as I said, for some reasons, I can't get used to click atop of the page for the forum or the articles. Maybe incorporate some kind of menu at the right side of the page, between "latest forum post" and the poll? I'm no designer, but I know that I miss my left/right menu, and I don't think I'm alone. I must have spent about a full 2 seconds searching for that missing feature, and I'm used to odd web sites. So, for those less used to it, simply seeking information, that might be a problem for them. But as I said, I'm no designer, and I know it's hard to please everyone, but I don't think that would hurt the design to add a menu. Anyone else felt that need/experienced that 2 seconds of search?
