Ok this is just a suggestion, a small, minor suggestion. I don't know about anyone else, but I keep on hitting the "News" link when what I wanted to click on was the "newPosts" link. It's happened more times than I can count. It's probably because

(a) they're close to each other (only the "Chat" link separates them) and
(b) they both start with the letters n-e-w

Occasionally I'll hit the myNEW link accidentally as well.

Don't get me wrong, I love the new layout. Very sleek. But in the interest of improving functionality, perhaps the two links could be placed further apart from each other?

If it's too much trouble, it's alright then. It's just a little minor annoyance for me.

That's News To Me

I haven't had that specific problem, but I wouldn't mind seeing the "News" links changed to maybe "ATSNews", "ATSNN" or something like that for branding reasons.

And maybe that could also help with this problem.

I didn't have this problem on the previous version of ATS because I looked at the icons instead. Now I glance up in the general direction and see the word 'new..' and click on it without really looking.

But I do think changing it to ATSNN or ATSNews is a great idea that would mitigate that tendency to click on the wrong link.

I would probably still click on the myNEW link accidentally now and then.
