A word on blocking users
Hi, SGN. Just to note, it's been my experience that generally we shouldn't disable talk page editing for blocked users unless they've been abusing it. This allows them to argue their blocks. You disabled talk page editing for Monsterous123 (talk · contribs) and Mhendrickx (talk · contribs) even though they haven't been abusing talk page editing privileges. Just a reminder.

New front page design
Hi, I saw that you had designed a new version of the front page. I joined a few days ago & thought I would give my thoughts as a new user. I have done up a basic photoshopped version of the top half of it(please excuse my poor photoshop skills!)-only two main stories because frankly at the moment, Wikinews doesn't have enough new stories & they run the risk of looking stale. The latest news & popular articles would then allow for easy access to other stories. The position of the create an article button is prominent to encourage more participation from readers. I didn't go any lower because my screenshot wasn't big enough-but I can envisage having interviews & original reporting below that followed by some Wikinews policies-but with other stuff being removed to avoid cluttering it. It is attached below.
