More Pixels to Drool At

Anthony Head

As you all know, this website is like the old spinster aunt you love to hate who lives in a 1 bedroom flat with 3 pussies and a budgie but is ALWAYS ‘up to date’ with the latest celebrity news courtesy of the monthly subscription of HEAT magazine. It’s really not like the cool hipster down the road who likes to pretend she’s forever homeless but you just can’t stop from coming back to this joint (I wish, please come back I beg you). Anyways, this potential mess is temporary-ish but I will make it permanent if most of you are okay with it. Of course, this only applies to future posts and previous ones are staying the same.

Also, I have replaced the busted old comment system with Disqus (your old comments are intact although sans Gravatar) and you can still use Facebook to comment if you want to with it. Basically everything else stays the same (I ain’t no rocket scientist) except all the pictures are now bigger and your comment system is now hopefully improved.

Over the next few days this website will burp, fart and moan like me on Christmas day so please bear (or bare, or both) with my technologically challenged ass. Is bigger better? Please let me know what you think in the new comment section below!

    So, here goes the last site that was using the gravatar…I shall miss it!

      Hopefully that doesn’t stop you from leaving comments on here, Boris!

    I HOPE SO….

    i think the commenting system was pretty ok, i dont like institutionalized comments but the posts themselves i like better, they seem cleaner, like thefacebook without the ‘the’ 😀

    • squarehippies

      Glad you like the new placement! The old comment system was ok but somehow I was getting tired of people not being able to edit or reply to a comment. Necessary evil, I suppose!

  • Anne Noise

    Comments are comments. Whatever works for you!

      Here at this classy joint we do strive to bring first class user experience using all the available resources – just watch the broken beer bottles as you come in and flush the toilet twice because the handle NEVER works.

    I’ve used Disqus for a good while now, I like it. And it IS much cleaner and easier than your old system! Updates are good. I very much approve!
    And thank you for the work on the site. You don’t really hear that enough (No blogger really does). I’ve happily been a reader of yours for years and don’t plan on stopping until you do. 😉

    • squarehippies

      Yes I think Disqus is better, it’s just a pain to import 6 years worth of comments to the new system! And can’t thank you enough for supporting the site. My readers (and the men, too) are the reason I still go on really.

  • Boris

    Love the wide format and kudos for the comment section improvements!

    • squarehippies

      I’m secretly praying that the wide format is not hammering my server actually.

  • SZK

    I like the new changes! 🙂

    • squarehippies

      Hopefully for the better, glad you like them!

  • ANightWriter

    Now I will actually comment. 🙂 Looks great!

    • squarehippies

      Thanks and thanks!

  • JD

    Time will tell.
