MetalReviews Gets An Upgrade
27 Nov 2013
Tonight, we made an update to the site and forums that was a long time in coming. This update gets rid of a few annoying things about the site (scroll bars anyone?), adds some readability updates, and updates the forums to a newer version.
This is the first upgrade we've had time to do in a while, but it definitely won't be the last. We're going to make the site more mobile-friendly, add more content in the future, and probably do some more design changes to make it easier to read and find reviews once we've got some more of the kinks out.
We appreciate all our loyal readers' feedback while we make these changes -- if you see something that doesn't work or have an improvement you really have a hard time living without, please let us know on the contact form or in the forums and we'll take a look when we get a moment.

"I would do it in a heartbeat. They are the ones that have closed the door on it. I've only needed a break, and I've had that break. So I'm ready, willing and able. But I honestly don't think they ever will; they've closed their door on it and I think they're too headstrong i ...
