Instead of having the words admin or legend under the name, why not have a symbol of some sort for each one? It would certainly make it smaller. That along with the colour code easily identifies mods admins and legends.
I really like the accessible design of the main page but as i said in another thread i think a fixed sidebar on the forum would both help navigation and compliment the main page design.
Why not have a the main page updated with submitted content more often? it would certainly change the page if nothing else.
