For a while now I've been working away on something special for everyone at RuneHQ. I wanted to give the site a fresh lick of paint and shuffle things around to make things more user-friendly in as many ways possible.

Posted Image

I'm proud to present the current beta version of RuneHQ - now open to the public!

http://www.oliver.runehq.com/

We're still working away to get everything ready for when it goes from Beta to Live and we need your help. If you come across anything that you love, hate, want to change, etc. please post it here so that we can review it and make any change necessary. If I don't know about it I can't change it! While you are looking over the new site, things may be changing throughout the week while I continue to make adjustments.

Please note that the main purpose of this project was to open the doors for new opportunities and fix some problems we've had, such as loading times due to heavy image use in site layout and long guides glitching with the layout. This isn't rebuilding the website - the core is still the same.

You currently have the option to choose between two colour themes: The default is a light blue theme called Azure and the second is a dark grey / black theme called Charcoal.

Major Changes
- We have a new logo and a new site font
- The news on the main site is larger to allow more freedom and less clutter - two columns instead of three
- Search the site from any page in the navigation menu
- Check the PIM databases to find important content at the very top of the page
- The announcements area has been overhauled to permanently show off important information
- Find us on Facebook on the main page
- Matching forum skin!

Known Issues
- The billboards look squashed because they are. When the site goes live, new billboards will be added at correct dimensions.
- If main images on the database pages are not centered, try refreshing the page before reporting it.
- Some guides have empty areas, these are known.
- Some images may not be appearing on the site. This project was started months ago and not all new images since then have been moved across.

Impressive, good work :D The only thing I recommend is a twitter live-feed under the Facebook one. Just in case a visitor would like to know the news via the homepage :)

I know that there is a twitter button on the top right corner, I just wanted you guys to balance the sites equally :)

Not sure if you want to keep it as it is, but in the beta, the name of the person who posted the sitenews doesn't show up as it currently does.

Thanks for the awesome signature Buck! :D


I, Greg, hereby pledge to never support known gold selling sites. I will not buy any gold or items from any shady dealers. I will not use a bot, nor by my silence allow friends or acquaintances to believe that I support botting or gold selling in general. I will be part of the solution.

There is also a forum theme that goes along with the new website. Go to the bottom of the forums and click on "Change Theme" and then on RuneHQ - Azure.

There will be a Charcoal themed skinned, but it is still in development.

It looks amazing. I like how it's easier to see everything which i'm guessing you were going for.

Hey Dark, just noticed something you might want to look into for the Azure Forum Theme, since I figure it will become the default with the release of the beta site.

At the bottom of the forum when using the, there's a barely visible white divider which separates off the "_ user(s) are reading this topic/forum". I suppose this is a matter of personal choice, but I think it would look better and be easier to see if it were changed to dark blue like the outlines of the posts.

It is a more simplistic look, but I don't see it as plain! D: What makes it seem plain and outdated to you?

Many ads , some pictures are stretched out , everything is all over the place , it has very to little no graphics. Colors are missed match.

I know this will save alot on the servers because it requires alot of data but I love it now ! D:

The ads have been reduced on the new design, so I'm not sure where that's coming from.. O.O

Stretched pictures.. I assume you're talking about what we call the billboard.. near the top of the news page. We are aware of that. We just haven't had time to "fix" those images yet, but that's the only thing I'm aware of that is stretched.

I'm not sure what you mean by everything is all over the place.

No graphics - That was a design choice. It should help speed up the site that tiny bit more and every bit helps. Unfortunately that's just something that some people will love and others will hate. :(

Miss matched colors? Where? :o

I understand maybe I just have to get used to the new look after all people aren't comfortable with new things/ideas.
