  1. love the color bars, but don’t much care for the banner ad placement at top below nav bar, and there is too little differentiation between columns and widgets perhaps using a background color to break up the white.

  2. Hey Lyn! Thanks for the comments! Where would you put the top leaderboard ad? We really had to think long and hard about where we wanted to put it. We wanted to keep the header as compact as possible but, hey, advertising pays the bills :)

    Do you think the right and left sidebars should have colored backgrounds? Or, are you just talking about on the front page under the featured stories gallery where “Community Events” and “Contribute” appear alongside recent stories?
