No problem Superfly.

nV News is a second-tier site and I like that. As such, Mike doesn't let any outside influences drive this site...that enables those of us on staff to just focus on you guys. At times, some of us on staff might come across as hardasses but it's to weed out those that would like to come in here and cause trouble for 99% of the members that enjoy being here. Sorry, I kind of got off on a tangent there.

Not to nag or anything but i would've said that this statment is 100% true if that Pricegrabber issue wasnt still around.

Uh, I wasn't referring to advertising. That's a completely different topic; unless you want to donate the balance of that pricegrabber ad or help pay for this site like Mike mostly does out of pocket. Or do you have another advertiser lined up? I'm all ears. We know it's an issue for some people, it affects me as well but we're doing the best we can.

I liked the old format. This one just takes me longer to see what's available. However, I am pleased you are always looking to improve things.

The bottom of the link/drop down arrow is cut off when there is a headline beneath. Any fix? Line spacing issue?

Thanks for the heads up. That seems to just be an IE issue...looks fine in Firefox. It probably is a line-height style issue.

The new "new" layout looks great, I really enjoy the icons in the text, really nice.

Cool, thanks GlowStick. As BrianG pointed out, I have an issue with IE but I'll get the fixed as soon as I can.

I do care and I appreciate your feedback. The pricegrabber issue doesn't affect Internet Explorer but it does affect "some" Firefox users. It's something we're looking into.

Regarding the layout...

I've made some adjustments and the bullets display correctly now in IE and I changed the "external link" icon to be a bit more subtle and added an arrow.
