See what's changed with the latest Hearthhead update.

Hey, folks! As you may have seen on the way to this post, we've just pushed another major update to Hearthhead.

Since our redesign initially launched in October we've been gathering community feedback, figuring out the best way to address it, and this is where we've arrived at for the time being. Our goal was to stay relatively close to the original design while making it much more aesthetically pleasing. This includes updates to responsiveness (no more wackiness at weird screen sizes), standardized design decisions, a higher regard for vertical space, and much more.

By no means is this the end of the improvements we're hoping to make, there's a ton in the works that we're very excited to share.

You can find a full list of the changes below. Please send us your questions, comments, and concerns!

    • Header

      • The header now takes up less vertical space.

    • Users can now scroll through the featured items at their own pace, though it will still auto scroll on a timing loop.

    • Decks

      • We heard you loud and clear on vertical space being an issue, so now the decks area will never take up more than one row no matter what screen size you're at.
