News papers and other print media do not change layout very frequent. The reason being, it effects readership. Reader feel uncomfortable when they are not able to locate their interest as usual, resulting in switching to other comfortable layouts or familiar layouts.
Think on these lines too when you are making change to layouts. Try to maintain old flavors as you move in new directions. Don't you want old desiviewers to stay when you invite new desies.

I think even popular email / search engines like yahoo and hotmail change once in a while .

Though I agree that such change should not be frequent , which I believe is not in case of CD .... but change for the better should be incorporated and the old users would get accustomed after a while....

As of now , it looks much structured than before .

Fido answered your question. For the betterment of the site, we may need to change the layout. Also it is not a question or new desies vs old desies. A more structured layout could help both.

And I don't think we have changed the layout so much. Essentially there are only two changes.

We have a problem of getting same question again and again from the members, and do avoid that we need to come up with a solution. One of the suggestion was the ability to search. Another excellent suggestion was wastage of the top space with less important information for the reader. We removed that and put a search box there.

Only other change is putting Newest Posts and Latest Replies side by side on top as most of regular cds are reading those more. And we pushed the categories browsing at the bottom with a wider space so that it does not look cluttered.

Thanks.

I have observed that the 'search in charcha' link has been removed from the left hand side since yday . Is it possible to add a link to 'My Messages' in the same place above 'logoff'. After charcha the next thing I generally have to visit / use is 'My Messages ' .

As an add on request : Is it possible to have the link (x) new messages somewhere in the top ........ Being on the lowest level takes it out of sight and out of mind ....... and one may not observe new messages till one scrolls down to the end .

If we can have this smwhere in the top it would facilitate immediate attention .

As a second add on can the dark blue menu tool bar be reduced to one line ...In my browser it shows in 1.25 lines which can look more balanced if it is accomodated in one line either by reducing the font size or filtering some links .... Just a suggestion subject to feasibility .

My Messages is already part of menu, It looks like you missed it.

Sure, I will move the my messages to the top, somewhere.

Again, though I have bigger menu and relatively big font, you missed the "My Messages". Are you sure reducing it will help?

'My Messages' on Menu does not show if you have any 'New Message' or no :) Hence the need to Scroll all the way down ;)
