Extensive A/B testing, stressing the extensive, would have quite clearly shown that this new design is completely unusable. I have run A/B tests on sites with 100,000 uniques a week, and sites with 1,000,000 uniques an hour. This design would not have made it out of any test I ever did. So you are trying to sell us something that just doesn't add up. That is one of the big reasons its so hard on this side.
Minor fixes and tweaks are not going to solve this. The biggest problems are still that it is "responsive" only in name. I am sitting here on a computer with 3 40+ inch screens (42", 42", 46") and no matter how wide I choose to make the page the Races section doesn't move up next to the news section. That is pretty much one of the most basic responsive designs. Instead of any columns or sections moving around to adjust to my screen size, I get a very thin sliver in the center of the screen, that never changes size.
Now its easy to write me off as an edge case, and with my monitor setup I am one. But the thing I described there is not related to just how much of an edge case my setup is. Because its the same problem on my 15" laptop. My big setup just really lets me see how bad it is.
Cool 1 million uniques an hour, what site was that?
Oddly CYN only is responsive up to 1000px due to advertisement requirements - we are looking at solutions around this as thats not really good enough.
