Comments on the redesign

I logged in today and was sent to the redesign, and almost had an infarction (and almost permanently left to the other deals site) because I thought the classic design was dead and gone. Having said that, it served as a bit of a wake-up because I realize that some day we'll probably be forced into it. Here are my comments:
  • can't get to simple FP without signing in
  • far less dense FP
  • color banding on FP simple view is too subtle
  • can't turn off featured deals on FP
  • 'best deals' starts in about the same spot, but you traded quick-links to various deal categories for 'featured deals' -- at least for me, this is a bad trade
  • No direct link to forum thread from FP
  • If you go to the mobile site, you cant actually get back to the full site, because the link is at the bottom ... and, well ... the list is an infinite scrolly. The link just jumps down over and over and over and over and over and over and over ... you get the idea.

You're not alone.

I can't for the life of me understand why they have hidden it in the "Announcements" forum rather than putting it here in the SIS forum....where folks would generally look for it and could actually SEE IT, but there is a thread for Redesign feedback:

For your fourth point, you can hide the Featured Deals section in your frontpage preferences (Click the cog on the top-right of the Frontpage Slickdeals section).
