Or how about one of those cool javascript scrolling 'tickers' as the bottom of the page?

Go all in with some autoplay videos. Perhaps even begin each video with an un-skippable ad!

But that's so minor I'd not care if it was fixed or not.


Yep that would be my suggestion as well. The existing format is fine with me..

I hate podcasts. never bother.
I don't see much of a problem with the format now...why does it need changing?

I'd second that. Maybe drop the link to the news headlines from the menu bar though.

I think its about time to drop 'The Forums are Up....' announcement. That's taking up a lot of real estate.

And 'yes' to reinstated news links - maybe they don't need to be updated on a daily basis, but a couple of times a week would be fine. Place them on the front page where they used to be. You might also consider a mechanism for user notification of interesting news items as well.

Not a big fan of podcasts. I check out a few every now & then, but find it far easier to focus on a well written article.
Get yourself a well supported CMS with a mobile friendly theme so you no longer need to code the site by hand. Just don't break the RSS feed.

A weekly podcast would be better than a daily.
