So, looks interesting, right? This is the prospective layout of the new site's homepage.
The focus of this blog post is the colour scheme, and as a community, our opinions in regard to it. It was chosen by the people, and the colours featured can be found here: http://kuler.adobe.com/#themeID/1183465. When I voice my own opinions (as I'm about to), bear in mind that I am not - in any way, shape or form - trying to influence yours.
I'll start with some positives. I like the white background, with the yellow module boxes highlighted in the foreground. The shade of yellow is pale and pastel-y, and therefore most colours of text are easily readable over it. I also like the navigation bar, in the two shades of green.
And... some negatives. I'm not so much of a fan of the deep red link colour. It seems like too much of a change from the general yellow/green theme that's already going on quite nicely.
Another colour scheme that many users appreciated was this one: http://kuler.adobe.com/#themeID/1204740. Feel free to comment on this scheme, too.
I'm pretty sure that my part is done. It's now up to you, the Nerdfighting community, to comment with your thoughts and opinions. What looks good, what doesn't work so well, et cetera.
I wish you all a pleasant morning/afternoon/evening.
