We're still barreling towards the anticipated redesign launch on Monday - wish everyone luck! Once the site goes down it will remain down for several to many hours. During that time, we'll have a fun placeholder page by Luis, with much more to see and do than that old tank welding page.
When the redesign finally does arrive, there's always the chance NG will totally crash. If that happens, please be patient with us while things get fixed.
Also if the change is a total shock to your system and you go into a panic, remember we are a small group of sensitive human beings so try to be polite. If you don't like something, come up with a constructive way to explain why you don't like it and what you would prefer to see instead. We intend to rapidly iterate with improvements after launch; no more three year redesigns for the rest of this decade... I hope. We also have our own massive list of post-launch tweaks and improvements that were set aside to avoid scope-creep.
Other than that... Hope everyone loves it! I'll make a launch post that tries to explain as much as possible. I probably should have written that by now.
