Making it a even bigger problem if a individual disappears. Don't get me wrong, I have no qualms with this process being implemented. I am only trying to bring up something that nobody else was mentioning.

We do the draft thing in the editor forums all the time. Believe it or not, we help each other a lot on our own stuff. Almost every article from the staff has been helped made by the other members of the staff. If you want help on a draft, send it to us and we'll tell you what needs to be worked on.
Honestly, I really don't like the new layout, the old one was brimming with so much and the screenshots while a little overwhelming really gave you the impression you were seeing a list of games you'd probably never heard of.
The new layout is too stubbie and streylie it feels bland and doesn't have any of the magic the old one had.

The problem was that it was getting WAAAAY too big for a main page, and it was just going to grow and grow and grow. I want to eventually have the main page longer since I won't be deleting old text updates as quickly, so there will be more pictures along the side, but that'll take a little while.
Could you make the "Article Archive" text a different color and/or some styling changes to make it stand out more? It's somewhat inconspicuous down there as if it was directing you to last month's blog entries rather than a diverse and full wealth of information.

Yes, I think a more complete overhaul perhaps would be better, would might be cool if you/we ever get around to it is something like the-underdogs. Where you can find by genre, year released and alphanumeric.
The main thing I had is atm it just looks really weak and empty which is not good for attracting new visitors.
There's no need to call it "old review archive" or anything like that. Saying it's old sounds as if they are of lower quality or maybe done ages ago when no one knew what the heck they were doing. Just call it reviews or articles archive.
As for the drop down menu Kurt, you can go to zophar.net and steal the html for one of them

What I MIGHT do is just revert to the old page, and just take out the little descriptions by them, and replace them with something brief, like the genre and publisher. And then just take out the line breaks. This will save like 2/3 of the space so it doesn't need nearly as many images on the side, which is what caused a lot of the clutter in the first place.
