This was posted in the Non-Public Feedback forum, so I wanted to place it somewhere more public. Enjoy!
We whipped up a streamlined version of the Archive page.
We removed the filter box, added a few fields and truncated the stories to 255 characters.
This new page is a close approximation to the old AOD-style homepage and will probably serve as a much better landing page (especially for those that are worried about the sudden appearance of the NSFW images).
This new "summary page" is not linked on the main site yet, but it will be tomorrow. In the meantime, here is the link for your use!
Note that the above link contains News, Featured Columns and Reviews.

In my opinion, the biggest complaint I've seen is the change in homepage styles. While this isn't an exactly the same, I hope those of you that had a major problem with the new landing pages find this one much easier to use (as well as faster loading).
As I stated before - your concerns are our concerns. Keep the criticism constructive, but keep it coming! (Unless it's about Zoro - I can't tolerate criticism about someone skilled enough to use Santouryu).
