I would say changing the look is fine as long as you make it simpler and cleaner rather than more complex and cluttered. I think it would be possible, with skilled design, to make the site look more modern, easier to read and more professional by making it simpler and messing around a bit with typography and CSS.
Absolutely. I'd like it as a 2 or 3-column CSS centered layout with a max-width applied for starters. On my 24-inch screen, I have to turn my head to read any post over 1 line. This would also take away a bit of the white space introduced by the left buttons as mentioned above.
The green and pink (together) have to go. :) That combo, always seems... unfinished?.
