Dear 100 Hour Board,
Does the design of this site seem antiquated to you? Are there any plans to redesign it?

Dear Some You-Hoo,
If it ain't broke, why fix it?
But to be honest, I love how the 100 Hour Board looks. When I started reading 13 years ago, it looks exactly the same as it is now. So, it's a bit nostalgic for me.
Dear Designer Dude,
Actually, I was thinking about this the other day. I'm usually super judgmental about website design, but for some reason the 100 Hour Board doesn't bother me. I might even be a little sad if we updated it. Something about it is charming to me. Maybe that's just nostalgia, or maybe it really does have something to do with the current design. Who knows?
Dear Peter Parker,
Yes, it does seem antiquated to me.
Yes, there are plans to redesign it.
In fact, I've seen the work in progress, and it looks snazzy. We are taking into account a lot of improvement ideas, like a continuous scroll on the homepage so you don't have to go through the archives all the time, and to prevent days with an empty homepage. I think when it eventually gets put out into the world, you'll be really satisfied with it.
The process is just taking a long time and a bit of Board bureaucracy... now that you've mentioned it, I think it's time I discuss this again with the appropriate parties to see what we can do.
