I really don't like the front page redesign. The stories are harder to pick out and there's too much white space will all the information scrunched into a smaller area. It looks like the hi-tec mobile version of a newspaper website circa 2009.
There's feedback via the forum, Twitter replies, comments, emails..Accordign to the news article they are receiving feedback via email, which seems kind of weird give that they have a forum specifically for this.

Looking at the Stage 13 Live Report, 8 hours after the finish, and you scroll down a page or two, only to have the page refresh, and take you back to the top, find where you were and scroll down some more, and then another refresh, and back to the top again.

It seems to me that the previous format was much more easier to read and follow. With the new format I must literally fight through the screen with my eyes to pick up text of the updates. In particular the time stamp in bold font seems to be too prominent - why is the least important information bolded? And why is there even the date? Could you please try removing date and maybe play with the font of the time stamp so that it is not more prominent than the actual text?

Understood–just seems easily fixable by using the linked font. Or I'm missing something, which is entirely possible.Obviously not the ones included on the webpage. I think the ones on the site are Latin only, but should be Latin Extend to support some additional languages. Here is a bit more:
Some fonts on Google Web Fonts support multiple "character sets". The thing is, if the web font I use only serves the "latin" glyphs, users who translate the page to a language whose glyphs aren'tstackoverflow.com
