Changes I make to the website. submit

August 2010

written by owen, 2010-Aug-22

I've been busy lately mostly working on daily disasters and sleeping. But I have not ignored the internet. And with the rise of the scorn that is facebook its harder and harder to focus on anything creative nowadays. But alas I've been working on at least one thing that I can share with the public.

I've added a new category called "Food and Eats". Please don't misinterpret what "Eats" means - I know you people. Eats is just there to cover all the other stuff that may not necessarily be considered as "food", such as snacks and sweets which are bad for your teeth. I have a couple pics lined and I expect at least one picture submitted from each of you.

In other news I've been working feverishly (meaning every now and then when I'm not doing something else) on simplifying the blog news website. Doing so will eventually make it a cleaner more efficient overall expirence for the readers and the blogs that are linked. I have about 29 categories now, including Sex and Relationships, Politics, Opinion, Travel, Sports etc. I'm working on reducing the number to about 15. I've also made it so that it reads RSS feed from your blogs automatically, so if you write a lot of movie Reviews just email me (owensoft on gmail dot com) the link the RSS feed for your movie review category and I'll set it up in the appropriate category. I'm also working on logins for editors so that they can manage the influx of information that comes through the feeds.

So now there are 2 ways to update the news page; posting a link or submitting your RSS feed. The news site mainly focus on blog posts by people with opinions, hense you will rarely see a Gleaner or CNN article on there.

So thats basically it. Post a comment. Lata.

January 2010

New theme, I created late one night based on a old version of the wafer site. I really did not have any design inspiration behind this one apart from the fact that it was a new year and I was getting pretty sick of the old one.

Nothing much apart from the theme has changed. Updated the New user page so that it forces the user to answer 10 questions before they can register on the site. I've always been annoyed when people register and not post any comments, so that will solve that little annoyance.

The archive page also has startling data; 2009 (120 items posted with 61 photos) vs 2008 (255 items posted with 138 photos). 2009 has less posts than 2008 by about half. Performance is WAY DOWN! I'm not sure if I've people lazy or the recession had hit the site last year. I may need to fire somebody or you guys need to start submitting more content. Either way heads are going to roll!

April 2009

As I stated at the beginning of the year of our lord 2009 the new design is up. Only took about 4 months for something to push me from my procrastination and put it up. After the website troubles last weekend I put it up so its not what you would call "perfect". And due to the world recession I have cut back on the colors. So without further a due I present to you white wedding. Complain about it and make suggestions by posting a comment.

Feb 2009 - new category idea

written by owen, 2009-Feb-14

Development on the new year site has been halted somewhat because of the lack of a computer and work has not been on the forgiving side. However I will get back to it eventually, hopefully before the end of the year.

So here is the thing, idea, that I have being thinking in my mind, just a second ago, for a new content category. I will name it "video battle". So what will happen is that;

Step 1: each week somebody will post/start a new topic for example a topic called "love" or "sunday" or "bueaty" or "wedding".

Step 2: each commenter will post a link to a youtube video that in thier minds best describes the topic. it can be a music video or whatever type of video. Point is to see what everybody appreciates.

Sounds like a plan?

January 2009-ish - design preview

written by owen, 2009-Jan-11

So wow, yeah its a new year. I hope you all have realized this. ok cool.
As customary at this time of year I change stuff. Now with the unset of a new year I have an excuse to redesign the website AGAIN without people thinking that I have ADD or chic (elegance by virtue of being fashionable).

  • So the above picture is what the site is going to look like. Yes that is a white background and those are titties. The random mastheads will be back and bigger than ever i.e. the picture.
  • I will also be implementing someway for you to mark your favourite comments and posts so that when the end of the year comes AGAIN, it will be easier to rank them based on popularity rather than masturbatory self love.
  • I also may do a email subscription thing for those people who still haven't figured out rss. And also give the option to send you a email when a reply is posted to your comment.
  • By popular demand you will be able to upload your stupid portrait images. However, I will still be hating on all cell phone and small pictures. Also the maximum size of images will now be increased to 700x525 pixels. This is what that will look like; related picture
    vs the old
    related picture

Thats about it for the changes (which aren't finished). Start complaining or suggesting things you may want now.
