That green thing is just pug ugly.  But that's about the only visual
aspect I can be really negative about.  It's a nice initial page.  I
quite like the banner because it makes the page seem not to be
text-heavy, but it could be played with a bit.  I think the arrangement
of the rest of the text is good, too.

The images in the banner could do with filling in the available area.

Wonder if it'd be better to have uk-specific news and/or selected uk
members' blog posts on the first page with an about link instead.  Even
though this new design is great for getting people involved in the
group, is there a compelling reason to return to the site?  Then again,
is the page intended just for potential members?  I know, e.g., posts
are available elsewhere, but I'm lazy/time-constrained and want it all
too easy.

Good thing about this thread is I've actually paid a bit of attention to
the site, because I didn't bother at first.  Wonder how many people have
been similarly slack in this regard, and why?
