Maybe have a 'Contents' section right up at the top, with links that scroll the page down to the article selected?
There were quite a lot of sections already, and if we're going to be adding more to that, it would help to just have a quick navigation so people can get to where they want to. I can't imagine that would require too much work?

Indeed it should be tied closely to the Forums, but not to the extent that we have Forum Stats or links to the most popular topics. Maybe have such information at the bottom of the first page.

Additionally, the newsletter could be like, well, an e-zine in style. Rav is ravagingly good with graphic stuff (he took a bunch of classes anyway :P) and if we gave him a heads up, he might be able to assist.

Oh! And redesign as in, rearrange content layout and maybe a bit more modern look to it.

I agree with Rafe and Rezzy overall the design is pretty solid, just could do with a little sprucing up.
I also agree that there should be a contents/menu system to allow readers to jump to sections of interest to them quickly.
