Howdy Everyone, :ranger:
Thanks to the very hard work of [MENTION=12020]Zedd[/MENTION], the financial support of members (those that donate monthly or yearly), and the very hard working moderating staff – I’m pleased to announce that RO will enjoy a much needed renewal of the front page.
This is what it will look like (with much more below the fold).
The front page will try to be a little more eye catching with imagery and design components much more akin to 2014 web design styles. But none of us judge a book by the cover, right? Good, because the content behind the images is top notch and will not disappoint.
We’ll be highlighting not only new threads and posts from this forum, but we’ll now be highlighting more in depth and original content covering a broad spectrum of topics. The original content will be written by members in the community, mods, and myself on occasion.
There will also be room for guest posts. PM me for details should you wish to write a guest blog piece. I’ve been spending almost all my “RO Time” on preparing for the launch, so if you offer to write a blog piece and it takes me time to get back to you, please don’t worry - I’ll provide some form of feedback in the coming week or so.
I’m very happy to say that we have some very exceptional writers here at RO and the content we’ve already managed to put together for launch day will be thoughtful, intriguing, and just plain enjoyable to read.
Our scheduled launch is Tuesday. Onward, upward! :flag:
