I'm doing an early-morning update to the TankSpot template. Specifically, I am removing (and eventually replacing) the left navigation bar and adding a larger right area to make room for a sponsor advertisement.
I've been toying with the template changes over the week and I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to do with our links bar, both the sub-category guide links and the gear/donate links. Bear with me while I figure it out. I'm not willing to let our site move towards the frontpage clutter that was common in our first six months, which is the reason I'm removing them altogether until I know what I'm doing with them.
Actually, the block I set aside for the advertisement looks like it could work as a links bar as well. I might apply it to donors/authors as well (not the ad), and just make a left-hand comprehensive links bar similar to other sites.
