Early next week, we are going to be releasing a new design for Chowhound. You can see a preview of the changes here: http://www.chow.com/redesign
This first design release will mainly affect board and thread pages, and is the first of a series of changes that will be coming in the next few months.
To answer your questions about these changes, we've created an introductory video that we'll be launching alongside the release to help guide you through anything unfamiliar. That said, we hope you'll find the new design to be clear and easier to use on mobile particularly, while maintaining all of the functionality that you currently enjoy.
