And so, after weeks upon weeks of a bland maintenance front page, you my faithful imaginary readers are greeted with an impressively more bland design in all its glory!
Though that has always been more of my style, I prefer the artwork – or ghastly writing – to be eye-catching, and psychedelics in the layout never quite accomplishes more than a seizure. I did go more into my “Capsule Design” style than ever before with this one, but am rather happy with both the design and the slightly more functional WP backend. I say slightly because WP is still fucking retarded with images, but now slightly less fucking retarded. Perhaps autistic, but I fear I may be giving it too much credit there.
Barton (guy who paid for site all these years because you all suck in varying degrees of financial charity) helped piece together the actual PHP for the layout, which is pretty important because otherwise I’d just have a giant jpg here, and I shit you not that I’ve done it before with one of the much much earlier designs.
HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE: The “Projects” section. This is pretty much my approach to my ever branching creative outlets. Comics can now be bulk downloaded (I also found one YS comic I never even published, don’t know why because at least I giggled when I read it.) whilst artwork now has a rather exhaustive page for every piece, detailing some concept art and relevant trivia. Rambles are a bit of a mess because WORDPRES IS FUCKING RETARDED and I *breathes deeply* have to resort out all the permalinks (They enjoy changing core systems mid development, did a similar thing with a switch from UTF-8 to Latin. Or the other way around, I’m confused, lonely and abusing brackets.) along with images (because WP liked changing the cases of file names and thus they don’t match my personal versions – another great idea!). No one really cares about those so I’ll be a bit slack in that regard, what no one really cares about either is the NOVELS section.
The plural is hope. Despair for you all, but a personal sort of hope at least.
That said I have gotten disgustingly little feedback on CoW recently. Absorb
Chapter 1-9and do pretend to like it, lest I lose the motivation to breathe, let alone write about others doing so. [EDIT FROM THE FUTURE] You all are horrible horrible people who give less feedback than feedbags. Still, I managed to finish the book. Waste money on it physically or digitally.
About a year of content was lost. Blame shitty old host and me doing my last backup a year ago. Mostly the former if you would >_>
AND YES THIS THEME IS ALL ABOUT THE SHADOWS. I FOUND DROP SHADOW AND I WILL USE IT LIKE A 12 YEAR OLD WITH LENS FLARE UNTIL YOU LIKE IT.
A chronically ill friend who joked about reading CoW killing her…..actually died. She did mention I should use the word “Genitalia” more often moments before so though, and I shall honour her COMPLETELY COINCIDENTAL memory by doing just that! On a more sincere note, she will be missed, even if it means my nipples are now safe from violent twists.
