trackshark, dyestat, flotrack, runnersworld, and every other track and field website you can think of have infinitely superior designs than Letsrun.com
NONE OF THEM ARE NEARLY AS POPULAR
The "cluttered and thrown together" look people are complaining about is the reason information is so easily accessible on this site, as you don't have to click on subsections or think about what section something would be under...you just have to glance over whatever the brojos think is interesting which is usually what the most important information is...
That's what makes the message board so much better than the other message boards as well...professional, college, high school, threads about colon cancer...they're all on one page and you can just scroll through and click on whatever you want to read...I don't see any reason to change it
Granted the colors are ugly and keeping them would be more of a comfort issue but if they changed it wouldn't be a tragedy, I'd prefer if they'd remain the same as well
All in all...no changes are necessary
