Good news everyone, it was discussed on the Stack Exchange podcast, and we now have a site design. This should be rolling out as soon as we can get the design spec converted into workable CSS.

Completed layout:

If you have any comments before this is finalized, please let me know.

Design contributed by Stack Exchange user HarryCBurn.

    $\begingroup$ @vore I felt like the unicorns (which were now removed) added too much fun to an otherwise extremely, extremely, serious site. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I couldn't find anything in the podcast which mentioned Aviation.SE. Do you know the time stamp? Does this mean that we've graduated? ;-) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @vasin1987 Are you saying serious? These sorts of designs have become a trend on other SE sites! For example... meta.opensource.stackexchange.com/a/387/69 $\endgroup$

As the author of the work, I can offer a harsh (although biased) opinion on the matter.

The piece speaks to me, in that the singular turbine, whilst inhibiting flight, can both continue to fly, progressing through issues as Aviation.SE does.

Similarly, I feel as though the "Kneawwww" text also contributes to one of the main aspects of the site: free speech in a controlled way. This also shows the hand-crafted network through the hand-written text.

The whole feel of the picture shows the running motifs of AV.SE, and should be used as prime promotional material for not only AV.SE, but also for the SE network in general.

Thanks for reading my critic!

    $\begingroup$ (no offence) but a so less serious design might deceive new users about the strict moderation exercised here, and cause an increase in low-quality posts. $\endgroup$

I think that on the 4th of July, the Aviation.SE airplane should crash into the Arqade mothership.
