    Hey Surjith,

    Thanks for all the tweaks. Definitely stuff we're looking at—making shitloads of tweaks today.

    Re: The ads: Not sure if you know the story, but I bought Designer News from Layervault, which went bankrupt. At the time I bought it, it was losing thousands of dollars a month. In order to support continued work on the site, we need to have sponsorships, advertisers, and more activity on the job board. DN needs to turn into a proper business, just like Dribbble and other sites that stand on their own independently. That said, we're focused on only working with companies that are design-focused and that the community will be interested in. Hope that sheds some light :-)
