We're hoping to provide customizable layouts, so this "stock" design is what you'd see if you haven't logged in or are just visiting. Once you've logged in, you'll be able to rearrange columns and move/remove widgets.
The greyed-out text in the upper-right (Events, Spotlight and Sign Out) are actually tab labels. I'm thinking of using the :hover pseudo-selector to indicate the tab outlines once your mouse cursor moves into the area.
The Recent Forum Posts area will extract the first non-quote sentence from the latest post, to give more context. I just got tired and didn't render it.
I am particularly interested to know if people prefer this approach to features or the one from the previous post. Thanks!
