    Hey everyone, 

    We've updated HalestormRocks.com to a new platform! The great news is our new platform gives us more flexibility to make improvements and add new features to HalestormRocks.com faster than ever.

    Below are details on what you need to do to access your HalestormRocks.com account on the upgraded site and what’s different as a result of the changes.

    Don't worry we have your existing profiles saved!

    1. To access your HalestormRocks.com account, go to the login page and follow the instructions.
    2. Here are some differences as a result of the changes:
    So What's New? HalestormRocks.com still looks the same

    First off, you'll see that the style of the site hasn't changed, and things look the same. This is intentional. All the changes and upgrades are happening behind the scenes. It does mean it affects some functionality of the site such as:

    User comments on profile walls have temporarily been disabled

    At this time you will not be able write or receive comments on your user profile wall. We know this is going to be missed, and we promise to bring this functionality and more back to HalestormRocks.com in short order.

    Don’t worry – we saved your old profile comments and will restore them ASAP. The discussion boards are still fully functional and can be used for site communication with other members.

    As always, please report spam or other flag-worthy content to the WebCrew. You can do it on this Spam Report thread.
     

    Logging in with Facebook is easier than ever, and now you can login with Twitter too!

    Connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts if you haven’t already. To do so, hover over your username in the upper right, and click Edit Profile. Then click the Social Publishing tab.


    Uploading videos isn’t just for YouTube any more!

    You can still post your favorite concert footage of Halestorm to the Fan Videos section, and now you can use more sites – like Vimeo and TwitVid


    Comment and forum activity history

    Comment and forum activity from your user profile pages are now removed. We felt like these created messy and long scrolling pages.  Please let us know if you strongly disagree with this decision and did find this feature useful and we will discuss adding it back.

    We're looking forward to keeping the site running for a long, long time. These changes are a huge step to doing just that, and soon we’ll have much bigger and better things to share.

    Thanks,
    HalestormRocks.com WebCrew

The new layout is fantastic. It's a lot more streamlined and I feel the change was necessary. The information on the last layout was sometimes tough to navigate through and it had frequent errors. This one works.
