and this time I think you'll like them a lot better than before because all these changes happened as a direct result from feedback from folks like you

see details here:

http://blog.sbnation.com/2012/12/27/3801164/product-changes-homepage-changes-to-improve-scanability-and-better

specifically for CelticsBlog there will now be easy to find Forum and Chat links at the top of the page

general highlights for all sites include

- smaller pics up top (in the "cover")
- left-aligned stories below (the "river") with smaller pics
- higher emphasis and placement for FanPosts
- ability to put FanPosts in the cover

all this is going to happen "in early January"

click the link above and let me know what you think

Thank you! I have not complained yet but I have been spending a lot less time on the front pages and inside the stories since the change. I have been mostly reading the forums but look forward to the changes.

It certainly will be nice. I haven't gone to the front page of CB since the changes. It would always freeze up my computer.

I guess the people at Celticsblog were not the only SB Nation bloggers registering complaints about the new design to their site editors.

I think the changes are steps in the right direction for bringing the front page back to the easy to use and fun place it once was.

a lot of times the pics don't load and i can't click onto the forums.  Changes should be good.
