I know why he didn't post here -- he isn't actually interested in discussing this reasonably, he just wanted to exercise his brain/fingers -- I hope he had fun :)

gods is a bizzare choice for a page to mockup, it has no code

the nodelets are now collapsible -- hooray, more clicking for you :)     Its actually not a bad idea, I've had it myself a few times (when messing about with themes for Anonymous Monk or try out themes without changing display settings ), but the defaults aren't great for Anonymous Monk -- chatterbox at least should be shown by default

The biggest mistake is the navbar now permanently takes half the screen -- a detriment to both readability and navigability

Oh, an ROUNDed form text input fields, <sarcasm> wow, readability just tripled ! </sarcasm> :P

Also, some of the themese have dark text on dark background -- silly oversight for these bare-bones themes

Lots of his comments have been discussed in Site facelift? ( regarding memories of 1995/1990s ),
RFC: A Design Proposed for Anonymous Monk (logged out view) ( re improved readability),
PM redesign: status update ( re improved navigability ) / Re^3: PM redesign: the mobile experience ( re improved navigability )
perltidy in PM posts

But FWIW, I do appreciate the nudge, I wouldn't complain if The Monastery Gates are improved with an additional header before the ad

GET PERL | CHOOSE PERLMONKS EXPERIENCE: this, CLUJ2013

But I understand about benefits of a Perlmonks account

    Well, one of the reasons I didn't posted here is because I didn't had an account until last week. First time I tried to create an account (2 years ago), the sign-up process didn't worked out for me.

    I mocked up the gods page because that was the page I had open when I decided to do the face lift exercises. Indeed, a page with threaded discussions and some code on it would have been a more fortunate choice.

    From what I understand in this thread, lots of people see benefits in redesigning the site - what I can't seem to find is some good reasons for not doing it.

    If people in charge would give me access to perlmonks codebase, I'd take time and do it myself. Regarding the final theme, I think a poll would be more than welcome

      Funny that

      Maybe you should read more closely the discussions I and others (especially the OP) linked, and note when tye and other gods or pmdev are talking -- sure its a lot of stuff, but its a lot of stuff :) for example Re: Why PM does not need web stats, Re: RFC: PerlMonks above the fold navigation (size)

      I don't have a node handy that explains how it all works ( PerlMonks FAQ, Can I get the PerlMonks source code? ) but it is unlikely you could join gods , even pmdev has requirements you currently don't satisfy
