While I recognize the effort that went into the redesign, I must say that there are certainly areas where it falls down. I entered the Society Stall, and although it's nice to see the separate pages for different topical areas, it strikes me as poor design that the only ways to return to the Stall proper are via your browser's "Back" button or by going up 2 levels and drilling down again. Surely, a simple link back to the Stall wouldn't be inappropriate. On subsequent exploration, I see the same problem exists on most other pages. Choosing the next link up in the "you are here" all too often brings you not to something useful as an aid to navigation, but to the "Site Map" (cluttered with image files and the like, and not reflecting the logical structure of the design). I suspect this is the result of using "web management" tools that automate much of the process, however it's annoying.
As a passing note; Peter H says "TARS is refusing" to link to here. I'm part of TARS; I wasn't consulted. If certain members, or elected representatives, made this decision, then say so but don't imply a unanimity that doesn't exist. It's fairly apparent from the comments on here that a number of members consider the decision to be short-sighted.
