NEW SITE IMPROVEMENTS
Since June 1, we have undergone a series of initiatives to introduce new site improvements and sections. Among them are the addition of two new sections called BEST OF THE REST (see below) and Rubiks Club (see below). Our online store at Hessport's Rubik Shop has been greatly improved for easier navigation as well as faster ordering through EXPRESS CHECKOUT for previous buyer's. Additional content is being added to the rubiks.com site each week including new online games and the introduction of links to the best Rubik's content sites on the web (if you have a site you recommend... email us at [url=mailto:email@example.com]firstname.lastname@example.org[/url]).

BEST OF THE REST
Okay... so just because we're the Best Fad of the twentieth century (http://www.girard248.org/general/century
) doesn't mean that we don't recognize other puzzles and games with the true spirit of the Rubik's Cube. In fact, we've decided to start introducing the BEST OF THE REST to our visitors, members and fans by including five to ten non-Rubik's puzzles which have met the high standard of valuation by the Professor himself. Beginning August 2001, we will launch the sale of these BEST OF THE REST puzzles to our club members first and then the general public. Included in this will be an interactive review system where we will gather all your comments and ratings of these puzzles over a period of 6 to 12 months and award a GOLD RUBIK'S CUBE TROPHY to the BEST puzzle of the REST in the world. If you want to nominate a potential candidate to be included in this section, please let us know by email at [url=mailto:email@example.com]firstname.lastname@example.org[/url]
At present, we have located over 26,500 web sites which have a reference to Rubik's Cube and many of which are dedicated and loyal fan sites of the Rubik's Cube. This kind of vast coverage on the Internet is why we are searching to APPROVE partner sites which bring an additional element of fun and content to rubiks.com. Upon receipt of request to be added to our list of APPROVED sites, we review the content in them and make recommendations of what may need to be added, removed or modified before the issuance of our official SEAL OF APPROVAL icon. Like BEST OF THE REST, we will be awarding SITE OF THE YEAR honors and prizes to the best PARTNER site of rubiks.com. We are in the process of approving several sites which will bear the exclusive SEAL OF APPROVAL and be shown on our site as official partner sites. If you have a site which truly represents the spirit of rubiks.com or any of the famous Rubik's Puzzles from the past, let us know so we can evaluate it for possible i!
