Experimental new layout for SAMAA home page

I've put a new layout here
Any comments?

Hi John,

I hope my criticism will be viewed in a constructive light.

I really do not like the way the screen jumps and changes as you run your mouse over the different options. I find it difficult to navigate with a small movement of the mouse causing unexpected changes to the screen.

There is no indication that there are sub-options for (eg) "Special Interest Groups". It should change colour, at very least, and allow you to click through instead of automatically expanding.

A more standard menu approach where the selection changes colour to show that it is selected and a click of the mouse allows you to enter the sub-menu would, IMO, be more user friendly.

I'm not entirely happy with it either. I'll have to give it more thought

Hi John,

I also do not like the expanding sub-menus, and the disclaimer/conditions could perhaps be "linked" to a page at the bottom of the screen instead?

Thank you for your efforts!
