Personally I feel It's very stale. But thats how I feel about all of Chris's sites. I think it's it time for him to pay a pro to do some layout work instead of asking the community to chip in. Thats just me tho. Let me know what you think.

Lockergnome.net isn't exciting, but I don't mind it and the ads don't bother me because I know this is how Chris makes money. On the other hand chris.pirillo.com, I find a bit cluttered whenever I try to read an article, sometimes I can't find what I'm looking for on that site.. But for not paying anyone to do anything I think all of Chris' sites look good. Although I think he might need to find some people in the community who have a bit more time to donate or as you said hire a professional.

When I first read this question, my reaction was --- WTF!?! Who is this rude person 'Lee Navarrette' posting Smack from the GET GO! I stepped away from the computer, processed the question, and returned.
I hangout in LockerGnome.net as a Guest. As a Guest, one should have respect for the owner & their place. This question is like going to a party, then telling other guests that you think this place is stale. You continue to state that all the owner's parties are stale, and that the owner should do this & that.
To answer the question, the layout of Chris' places are just fine. LockerGnome.net is only a few months old, and just passed 10,000 questions. A redesign would probably change the look & feel of Chris' places, thus turn into something other than a place to hangout, Ask/Answer questions.

I find it busy, cluttered, and not too pretty. The additional ads are only making it worse. I agree that a cosmetic overhaul would be an improvement to the user experience. Check out Aardvark

I like the layout of this site. Very simplistic and it gets the job done. I wouldn't go bashing Chris's stuff if I were you, he put a lot of hard work into this site and I think he deserves credit for it where it's due. You probably couldn't do as good of a job on a site like this and attract the same number of fans.
