    Hey all - we have an update in the works and would like to share it with you and hear your feedback. One of the most common initial pieces of feedback we have about FRHD Web is how "blah" it is with an overkill of black and grays.

    Here is what we are thinking to spice things up a bit:

    What are your initial thoughts? We know (from past experience) that people generally hate change immediately but overtime the true feelings of the change will come to light. So let it sink in and then let us know what your feedback is!

    It's better, but I think what primarily needs to change is the page structure.

    First off I think each track take up too much space with the thumbnails, which makes especially the front page boring, and gives the impression of the site having a very limited amount of tracks/unneccessarily difficult to find new interesting tracks.
    The good old slide- lists need to go imo. Also use less dark colors, i think you should rather use light blue (or atleast make different color-skins for people to choose from). Light colors are less depressive and give a more sense of life.

    Maybe you could add another list to the front page, like a hot list based off of plays and with the leaderboard you could add a day, week, month, and all time for points and likes. You could also have a leaderboard for subscribers.

    The color scheme looks way more appealing than it is right now. However I agree with Stig that layout should/needs to be changed.

    honestly the black and grey color scheme makes sense to me because it's the colors of the game, any other colors wouldn't make sense imo

    I feel as though the text and stuff below the thumbnail needs to have some sort of connection with the thumbnail, it looks weird and disjointed without a box or something connecting them together

    I personally dont really like the colour, however, could there be an option to choose from multiple different themes (such as black, red, purple, pink, green etc) in the settings tab? I think it would be cool to have

    I like the new tabs you guys have come up with (on the sidebar), however could the notifications tab stay and not be replaced by a bell? Idk may just be a personal preference or simply what im used to, but im not too big a fan of the bell

    Could you guys also try and implement a forum advertisement bar or something on the home page, like if there is a big contest on it will show and entice people to sign up and enter (and not just 'official' contests, any substantial ones like the Remix Contest and stuff)? I think it would benefit the future of this game while also providing something different in a sea of tracks

    All in all I think it's a cool design, even if it does look real childish (obviously to be expected, being a kids game and all). I dunno if what I wrote was helpful in anyway but yeah, here's my input

    If the colour of the text was the same as the background of the side-lists I would be very happy.

    You phrased that perfectly. It's exactly what we need. Also, I just noticed, my track "Logical!" is in one of the campaign thumbnails lol https://www.freeriderhd.com/t/432464-logical

    I think the colors are great, but the icons on the side are a bit bold, maybe if you thinned them out a bit it would look less "nooby".

    Right away I hate it. I don't want every track named wilderness biking and LeviAustin / AwesomeGUY to make all the tracks. :/
