Maybe if someone explained what's going on in there, a sort of "for dummies" explanation, more people would pay attention. When I look in there, I get the impression that whatever is going on is over my head, entirely theoretical playing around with a 'demo' site that might be adopted but will not be replacing the org in the near future. To me, that means it's a "for coders and web-designers only" discussion. I can assure you that I'm not the only one who gets that impression.
Once there is a final version of that test/demo site thing, and someone says something about that version being implemented here on the org (or replacing some part of the org), then I'll jump to attention. If it comes to a vote, I'll absolutely chime in my ten cents. If there is no vote, but there is some sort of "we're changing it on ___ date" then I'm sure everyone who preferred the old version (of whatever is being changed) will be paying tons of attention.
Until then, what are we supposed to do? If it's just feedback on the pictures that you want, then I think you should be glad you're not getting much. People resist change. Those pictures look big and blank and foreign, like they belong on an entirely different site. It's not the org I know, so I don't like it. But so what? New members will probably like it and they're the ones the org needs to be redesigned for, so it can compete with other "modern" sites and all that. Do what you want and share it with those who understand what you're doing. The peanut gallery members will just gripe about every little thing you do until you lose all motivation to do anything at all. You're better off not hearing from them when you're trying to work.
