Revamping the site visually would make it more appealing (no drums and whistles, but a clean, modern layout. Right now it is a clean old-fashioned layout).
I second this. How about announcing a redesign competition among LWN readers, like Slashdot quite successfully did not so long ago? I'm sure there are many raders who could suggest a more modern layout based on web standards and without forgetting accessibility, usability, findability etc.
The current layout is quite functional but not very aesthetic IMHO, and like some others have pointed out, some interesting parts of the site are harder to find than necessary.
