AnswerUser interface overhaul Pin

Also, without meaning to offend, I think your site could do with some serious UI overhaul.

May I suggest:
• Don't use grid layout/absolute positioning. If you change to flow layout you won't have to worry about screen resolution as much.

• Your main navigation bar across the top of the screen could be downsized a bit. You could use a vertical navigation bar (like an inverted "L"?) or turn your solvengineer graphic into a link to the homepage so as to do away with the "main page" link.

• Put the search box below the main graphic & make it (the search utility) smaller.

• Remove or resize the "Welcome to" in pink. It serves little purpose. Besides, without trying to sound chauvinist, I don't think many engineers have pink as one of there favourite colours.

• Take the rss feeds & code search out of scrolling forms & give them their own separate space, even if it means another page. Make the latest news the main focus of the homepage.

• Get rid of the links below the embedded code search from Google - they're redundant and confusing.

• Make the point of the site more concise (i.e. to the point) & make the main feature of your home page the latest news. If need be, you could add another page with a more in-depth explanation of what the aims of the site are.

• Move the advertising to the bottom of the page - keeping it near the top gives the impression of a "cheap" site. Try to make the ads less "google like" (if possible, I've never worked with advertising through Google).

Once again, this is not intended to offend but to encourage. I didn't want to criticize your site without giving you some useful tips for you to consider. I like the concept of your site & I think with a good UI & some smart management you could turn it into a useful resource.

Good luck.
