Can't argue with the 4 points you illustrated. Thank you for the input. I think I have some ideas now. Though designing towards merely attractiveness is somewhat superficial, it's still easier to make it appealing. To me, it's much more difficult to design the layout for a site like craigslist.

Thank you for the idea. The bad thing about google-like, or craigslist-like design is that it requires user to read text carefully. Image thumbnails require much less attention. Again, I might be approaching this question the wrong way.

Thanks for sharing your idea. Tiles of text links aren't really attractive. I might have asked the questions incorrectly. I'm not objecting the idea of using icons at least, pure text just don't work well for such theme.

That's a good idea. Though it's not very attractive. It's certainly not a match to thumbnail tiles.

Well, it is like EnglishCentral, so there will be pages of contents, with each page holding like 20 entries.

Thank you. Color coding device sounds nice. But do you have any examples? I don't want to to look like craigslist either.
