Not to belittle anyone's efforts, but it needs some aesthetic/design work too besides that.

I think a nontrivial element in StackOverflow's success has been that it's very easy on the eyes, very well designed, and everything is exactly where you expect it to be.

(That's one thing that I think new.scipy.org got relatively right; unfortunately there were workload vs. manpower problems, and problems with access to the hosting (that eventually got solved, albeit too late).)
