Any updated opinions on the new site design (and SB Nation United)?

I thought that now that everyone has had a chance to experience and get used to both the new Testudo Times site design and SB Nation United as a whole, it could be worthwhile to revisit people's thoughts on the matter.

The original news post is here, a lot of people posted a lot of different ideas and criticisms, it'd be nice to get some feedback on the feedback so to speak.

Right now, my two biggest complaints are as follows:

- It's still pretty frustrating to visit other related sites within the SB Nation network from Testudo Times (most notably other college sites, especially the other ACC blogs). I know that I can favorite blogs, but that's part of the problem, I don't want to be forced to favorite the entire ACC. My favorites are my personal teams, but I'd still like easy access to other related blogs. I'd very much like to know if the inter-site traffic/links have taken a hit with the new design (e.g. clicks to BC Interruption from Testudo Times).

- While the frontpage looks fantastic, the constant shuffling of blocks and stories makes it harder to read and stay up to date. If there was one featured story in the same block in a fixed position that'd be fine, but now it seems to change daily (or even more frequently), and it's difficult to determine which is the latest thread and has the most current discussion. What's worse is that the stories are posted out of chronological order, right now if I open the links in what I would think would be newest to oldest, what I get is a mish-mash of the past few days.

Starting with the topmost article, here are the datelines:

Oct 8, 4:22p - Oct 9, 10:43a - Oct 8, 10:00a - Oct 7, 6:44p - Oct 8, 11:53a - Oct 7, 10:07a
