Welcome to the new HUDS.TF!

It's been a long time coming, but we're finally here. Welcome to the new HUDS.TF!

HUDS.TF has been through quite a bit this year already. Closure scares rocked us pretty hard, but the community has helped keep the site going with generous donations to keep us afloat. Thank you so much to everybody who has supported the site over the last few weeks, it's been very much appreciated.

Let's go over what's changed:

Overall site layout
The site is a lot tighter and modern looking than before. Everything just works a little better. You'll get Private Message notifications on the top bar next to your name, for example. I think it may take a little while to get used too but I personally think it's a way better change. I'm very happy with how it's come along.

Light and Dark Themes
The site now supports Light and Dark Themes! You'll be defaulted to the Light Theme, but you can change to the Dark Theme by going into your Account Settings and choosing the Theme you'd like to use.

We'll also be adding new exclusive Themes for Donators at some point in the future!

Search Function
HUDS.TF now has a somewhat working Search Function. I know it works because I tested it by typing "pootis" into the search bar on the Hitsounds Directory and it showed me at least 3 different pootis hitsounds.

It's not perfect, but I'm sure people will be happy with it nonetheless.

Guides Revamped
Guides have now been integrated as a major part of the site. No longer delegated to a boring looking forum, Guides are now fully supported articles that can be searched by different Guide Categories.

Guides are on a submission queue similar to HUDs, and will need to be accepted by a Moderator before being made public. Speaking of Moderators...

New Staff
A few prominent members of the community have offered to help the site out with general Moderation. In addition to myself and Wiethoofd, Hypnotize, J_ͣ_ͬ_ͣ_ͭ_ͤ King and Whisker are all now a part of the HUDS.TF Staff Team!

Community Forums?
The Community Forums are currently closed and all existing threads on the Forums have been removed. The Forums were not being utilized very well, and most discussion was being held in respective HUD and Hitsound pages. The removal is not too much of a big deal, and they may return in the future. However, most people will still want to discuss HUD stuff in general, which brings us to...

HUDS.TF Official Discord Server
We're opening our own Official Discord Server for HUDS.TF. All HUD Discussion can be held there, and all the HUDS.TF Staff on this site are also Staff on the Discord Server. Everyone seems to use Discord nowadays, so keeping discussion centralized in an app that everybody already uses is a no brainer.

Google Ads have been used on HUDS.TF for a long time. Recently, Google have made these Ads look absolutely awful, which is a shame, as I was always quite happy with how minimal the Ads on the site used to be. Unobtrusive Ads tend to be adblocked less often, so I expect more people to use adblockers while visiting the site. It can't be helped.

However, Donating to HUDS.TF now removes Advertisements automatically without the use of an adblocker. By donating, you remove those awfully big Ads, while at the same time supporting HUDS.TF. I think it's worth doing, but it's down to you!

There's a few other little bits here and there to go over, but rather than continue on, I'd rather you have a look around and enjoy the new site.
