CONTEST: What’s changed?


So today I decided to try to make a certain part of the website look a little prettier, and lo and behold, I destroyed the whole thing. Poof. The theme for the website was totally non-functional.

So what did I do? What any intrepid web designer does – restart from scratch. Yes, this is basically an entirely different website. All of the old stuff is still here, and I've done my best to make it look like how you might remember it. But there are a few things that have changed.

Here's what I'm proposing: either on twitter, facebook, or right here in the comments section, list FIVE things that have changed on this website. Be the first person to do so and you'll win a SUPER AWESOME PRIZE. And… go!
