    Recent Updates / Changes
    • New track listing layout. We removed the home page tabs, and replaced it with a "Netflix style" scrolling list. (We will be removing the top navigations button on the home page soon).
    • Removed left navigation links to category pages, and replaced it with a "tracks" page. This page will change as time goes on, and will become personalized to you.
    • Added a "Reshuffle" link to https://www.freeriderhd.com/shuffled

    With all due respect, I marvel at the fact that you have trending at the top of the list, even after complaints that trending was getting too much attention. It just seems so insanely obvious to me that trending should be second, if not third or fourth.

    trending = noobs = popularity = money

    I honestly don't know what everyone is complaining about when it comes to trending. It has not been that bad at all lately. All of them are fun to play, and that is what matters.
    The only thing I don't understand is the difference between "Hot" and "Trending" .. Could anyone explain that to me? :p
    PS. Love the update, but I have to agree that it makes navigating to a certain category a much slower process.

    Hot is for newer tracks to get exposure, and tracks only stay on that category for 2 days.

    you would place tracks that have been chosen by a handful of people, above those who are chosen by the majority?
    Char why cant we search for track authors yet?

    Our plan is to make the track listing order change based on your skill level / how often you come to the site.
    Given that trending doesn't change on a day to day basis, a player may see 'hot' at the top if they are a frequently returning user.

    This will be available shortly.

    We are talking about making an authors page. This will list your subscriptions, as well as have an 'explore' option which could show authors you may like.

    Why not? Lets say you search "ItsChuckNorris", but you really meant "ItzChuckNorris".. You should still have his tracks pop up somewhere in the list.
