I had pointed this out 7 months ago when we were asked for feedback on the design. Refer to my earlier answer, which had 13 up-votes. Quote: 3. I suggest making the "Ask Question" link more prominent. I see the underline on close inspection, but even so, the link doesn't stand out as much as it ought to, perhaps owing to the all-caps used for all the ...

I believe the subject matter is on-topic. However, you could ask instead about the various advantages of the new system, vs. the disadvantages of the old, which should solicit answers containing actual facts and references, rather than "why is it a big deal?", which might lead to opinion-based answers more than fact-based ones.
