I think Dani and her designer are doing a really good job with the site. I don't fully understand trending topics yet, but I'll get the hang of a thread with one post being the number one trending topic.
Anyways we should really be thanking Dani and her designer for spending so much time working on improving the site. We have to realize that this is a new layout and that there will be some things will just have to get used to.
Besides the trending topic section I like the site design, it is really clean. Kudos to Dani and her designer.
