The recent updates section on the home page of MINFIND had a few limitations. Dealers used this section to confirm whether their synchronization was functional, but it was limited to a vertical list of nine entries. If on a particular day, multiple dealers made updates, the likelihood of being bumped off the list was hughly probable.
MINFIND thrives on regular new specimens being posted, so it is only fair that those dealers that contribute content to MINFIND regularly get some sort of brand recognition for their efforts. Visitors to MINFIND immediately get the impression that the site is alive, well and current. Similarly, dealers that post regularly, enjoy the confidence of MINFIND users.
For this reason, the section has been re-designed as a horizontal scrolling section that displays recent updates for the past 3 days. Dealer logos are included to increase brand recognition.
