New design for contest pages

As you have seen we redesigned the contest pages. The new design may look unusual, but it has one very important advantage over the previous version - new site visitors can clearly see that we are publishing edited images, instead of just news story.
I found that many new visitors failed to scroll below to the images, and just glanced at the news text, thinking that we are just a news article site. The words "SCROLL BELOW TO VIEW IMAGES" didn't help much.
Thus the new design. I actually like it better this way too. Let me know what you think about it.

(some minor design changes are still on the way, but you get the idea of a new template)

I noticed that a couple days ago, what ever works best for the site, works for me.

I like the fact that you put the "view all" option back.
I like the "newsy' feel
I just plain like it!

Don't change it again.

Good to go Newsy. Expanding the comments without going to another page would be the only change I see.

I havent been back in a while and though I like the new contest page, the home page looks like a cluttered mess of text.

Any way you can limit all that text? Maybe display a synopsis of the news and then link me to a detail page?

This place is so hard to figure out, good thing I'm not smart enough to do pictures.Took me forever to figure out how to get to the comment page AFTER I signed in. Anyhow, since I'm here, I don't like the new format because I like to look at the news interest, then your comments on what people need to do before I look at the pictures. It kinda spoils it for me....

So long as it doesn't affect the price of beer it's fine with me.

Thank you, Kib, and that brings back legitimate questions - where have you been, how are you , and when are you planning to come back to FN?
