Parent article: Updates and an announcement from LWN

Why do I get the feeling all the people wanting to update the look of the site are trying to sell something?

Who knew so many web designers read LWN.

I believe the set of people who would subscribe to LWN but don't because of the way it looks is empty.

Institutional and group subscriptions have to pass through other approval steps. Some of those often (ime) involve more visual people.

I am one of those seeing the benefit in updating the site's look, and I am not in a web designing job nor trying to sell something, so I too wonder why you get that feeling.

Some think the current look is minimalist and great as it is, perhaps even reflective of the LWN brand, and I appreciate this. Conversely, it should be possible to see the point of view that it is endearingly klunky (quoting myself). I do not know how it affects people if they share this view, but it would do no harm to at least consider such issues.
