Your responses to our homepage redesign and site improvements have been outstanding! We have received a lot of positive comments as well as some feedback concerning the changes. Although a lot of testing and evaluation went into these changes, you may encounter some issues. Many of you have already reported several issues under the comments section of the update blog (Update on homepage redesign and other community improvements). As of the initial creation of this document there were over 50 comments on that post, and I want to make sure we do not overlook any issue. I have compiled a list of reported issues below so that you know that I have seen your feedback and can also keep you updated on its status. Feel free to message me or comment if you encounter any additional issues that I have not listed, and I will update this document accordingly.

is it possible to reduce the screen real estate of the boxes directly under the original post? that is, the "outcomes", "visibility, tags, etc", and the number of comments.  Those pieces of info take up basically a full page before I ever see a response.
