I like the simplicity, although few things I would change:

1. Too much space between lines.
2. It needs colours or at least shades of grey. Doesn't have to be extreme, but some faint cream or smth like that behind the text would be easier on the eye.
3. Use dark grey for the text to improve readability.
4. You need a logo

From functionality point of view, I would ad "Back to top" at the bottom of every article and "Go back to articles" at the top of every article. The latter should get you back to the place on the page where you were before entering the article - not the top of the page.

That's all I can think of right now

I like current simplicity so much that I'll share my disagreement:

1. OK for me
2. Please don't
3. Black on white is what I'm used to, and I would say this kind of a well tested configuration...
4. why?
5. "Back to top"? Seriously why people add these links on pages? I never ever click them.  There is this "home" button on your keyboard, and you can shift+click on the scrollbar also.

Variance is a bitch!

I can't imagine a logo that would go well with the current site.

It all depends what the target audience is, I guess.
To read articles at your site kiba, it will probably be next to impossible for people like me, who mostly use computers at night.

One more thing - the title of the page should be centred. I think your "Home" and "Submission" buttons pushed it to the right

Brand new article by somebody who isn't me! Vitalik Buterin wrote an article on the future of microtransaction and how bitcoin would revolutionize it.

You may want to reverse the order of the latest articles on your home page.

That's not very helpful. Can you explain why?

The only reason why the site is very plain is because I can't afford a few hundred bitcoin in hiring a website designer.

Sure, essentially, there is just too much space with "nothing" that seems like there should be something there. I know thats not specific either, but it's just something I notice,I can say a few things that bother me that I can point out.
  • Submission is capitalized, so should "home".
  • "Bitcoin Weekly" text seems off center
  • I feel the advertisement box should extend to the ends of the box it is contained in, since that space is not really doing anything. However the box on the bottom for the license seems fine.
  • Move the 'By: author" to after the article short description, it helps form a separation that makes reading though it easier to read. Another option is to give each box a slight shade or color, but thats not what your going for, and thats fine.
  • I would like to see dates for each article, it's just something nice to have
  • Since you have a div to contain your content, making that div's background or the body background slightly off-white would improve looks and give a place for the eyes to draw attention to more naturally.

Simple is great, but when you do simple, the little things matter more.

If you agree on those, most of them are a pretty basic fix. And I'll help do them for free if you let me, and give basic help for whatever. No strings attached, I like the warm fuzzy feeling, and it wouldn't take long.

I'm not a professional, I have taken a webdesign class and passed with an A. And I like programming. I have a few examples of what I have done, if you want to see them first.

Jamezmcclain@gmail.com if your interested. I can't help today, but probably sometime during this week.

I established a primitive registration/login system and access restriction.

Before, it was possible for anybody to create an article provided that they know the URL. Now they can't.

Friday TODO:

1. I will have an article up shortly after I fixed a bug with user accounts for creating articles.
2. The articles on the front page will finally be ordered in according to the date it was posted.
