      This looks great in my opinion. It follows a better IA. The sidebar to the right could still appear, and the measly (but important) 3 links in the left sidebar could simply be moved above the main content column.

      +1 I like the redesign overall and these are great tweaks! At the very least, the upvote button needs to be moved to the right, since it's not more important to see at a glance than the story title. FWIW I'd personally also shrink the story type icon since it feels to me like it just adds noise. I know getting that right would be tricky though!

      I agree - I'd love to see this arrangement.

      This, this is a much better layout that doesn't confuse my eyes about what i'm trying to look at. Please, this.

      Having two icons in a row then the text that I want to read makes my brain hurt. I think its particularly bad when you have two bright non complementing colored icons next to a subdued heading.

      Also does the number even matter, shouldn't i be "liking" it based on merit rather following the numbers, assuming that articles with more interest appear further up the page.

      Any how good luck :)
