Massive front page changes coming

We are currently working on a total overhaul of RHR, We apologize for any issues with the front page at this time as it may take us a few weeks to get everything transferred over to our new templates.

The Forum will be unaffected and remain up while all updates happen.

We will post updates as they come.

Update 0.01

  • Top links offline due to security incompatibility

  • Massive giveaway prepped for our relaunch, who needs a new desktop?

  • Scroll window for new posts offline but should be fixed before new template launch

Update 0.011

  • new template applied but tons of fixing work to go

  • giveaway planning has moved up to a second giveaway idea for new logo to go with our new theme colors. Will update this soon

  • Site admin is somewhat working on the backend eta Jan 1st but updates will confirm if this is possible

Thanks for stopping by cannot wait to show everyone our new site ๐Ÿ™‚

Site is looking good. Keep up the nice work!

At first I was all

This is probably a bit nit-picky, but what if the search was part of the blue bar, and the trending was treated as part of the page so it would go away and not expend my vertical space. Also avoiding the blue bar flickering as it gets redrawn when using the scroll wheel.

But then I tried in another browser where I do not have social media buttons blocked and saw why it is the way it is.

The blue bar feels a little big in it's shrunk mode, but personal preference.

In IE 11 and Firefox I can scroll up and down really fast a couple times and have the banner not expand properly, but cycling it once restores it to correct dimensions. Not really an issue, just something I noticed.

Also, in IE there is a line after the first rating star in the slider and the comment count is scrunched into the comment bubble thing.

Is there a way to filter reviews? Example:
Browsing GPU reviews -> brand X fanboi/etc.
Is there going to be a way to manually skip to a certain page of reviews? The list is generated on the fly and there is no URL, so you are going to have to click next->next->next->next->next->next to go back in time. To be fair most people do not care to go that far back anyway.

Yeah I already complained to John about thatย  ๐Ÿ˜›

Screenshot it. Our ads are through Google if they are being intrusive I want to see and limit them.

It's not the ads themselves, it's the pop-up bitching about having adblock on.

Just cause I have been unemployed for 4 months means nothing.

@enaberif:

I did not mean that in any
way I spent months laid off years back it sucked. I was saying with a new house and 6 month old time is not a plenty ๐Ÿ˜›

What is this URL?

Also, I have never seen a popup. How long was it around for?
