+1 TPG is way too hectic.

At least with SD you visit the site for the first time, within 2 seconds you know exactly what you're looking at.

The more i think about the new redesign the more i come back to an Idea of the main site in it's simplicity. like it is NOW
1.Main post On top Big maybe instead of a header image like most sites.
and then underneath smaller posts like a blog theme.

that should be the BASE. You keep the same concept of the OLD page so people can scroll down to retrieve the post in order
that part shouldn't change and in turn people won't be afraid of your redesigned page.


What could change is how you present those post, what you do with the other real estate and how your site interacts with the information on the page.

2. Post Layout
Clearly the Vertical layout takes way too much space and should be switched to Horizontal Posts.
If you could show Snippets that would be great that you can CLICK to expand and contract without leaving the main site.


3. make top bar fixed with some pull down menus.


take a look at this
not exact but holds a simple layout which could work and needs modifications like expandable textboxes and main post full width maybe instead of header.

and heres another look
prob the simplest if modified with above ideas would look really nice as well

Im not sure why I'm posting this one
its much busier but could worked if toned down as well with the same concepts as mentioned before.

Why isn't there a DDMS/DDF app?
I know there is tapatalk for DDF, but there seem to be some issues with that especially around posting and viewing photos.

that's a much bigger request than a redesign of a site.

Do people still use blog based apps? how many news/blog/deals apps do you use daily?

Not many, but could provide an additional outlet for advertising, app notifications instead of twitter, and a better interface for DDF.
