Danville Patch Homepage Changes

We got a facelift.

No, you're not losing it! Patch looks different.

It's a quick visual nip-and-tuck to the homepage to make it even more user-friendly. This includes moving a couple pieces of furniture. For those keeping score: 

* We'll tweak some words in our navigation bar to save space (e.g., "Traffic" is now "Commute") 
* We'll move the weather icon next to the Danville Patch branding so you can find it more quickly.
* We're moving, well, YOU closer to the top. (Our "shout stream" will be front and center to show off all your comments.) 
* And of course we'll prettify a few things. 

While the site might look a little different, we still offer the same robust coverage of everything happening in your community. That was, is, and will always be our mission. We hope you'll let us know what you think of our tweaks.

Not really an improvement but OK. Just so long as you don't have a home page that looks like the Walnut Creek Patch. Their home page looks like a stamp album and is unreadable. People (me) are used to viewing lists of information that we can click on. Presenting page after page of photos with short captions is not conducive to efficient browsing. That's why I stopped visiting WC Patch. Martha would not have used such a clumsy system... Suggest folks go take a look at WC Patch to see what I mean.

Dare I ask what an improvement might mean to you?
