I believe Cloudy Nights tried the same switch about five years ago and it was a total disaster, so much so that they went back to their old format. This seems to be a very similar product to what they tried.
I agree with others that the old format was great, at least for the classifieds. The formats for the Amart discussion forums were not so good but I never used them, mostly because I look to CN for discussions.
If you have any relationship with the CN owners/moderators you should talk to them about their experience. As this new site stands, way too much space is taken up by ads on the right or generality on the left, making the middle section way too small to be useful, even on an iPad.
Having just been through a database switchover at my Company that was not successful, I highly recommend you go back to the old format while you try to sort out the issues.
Again, I appreciate the effort.
