Just a reminder that the site rebuildis scheduled for December 4th, and that you need to have your requests or screenshots of problems mailed to [email protected] by December 1st so I can go through and make up the list of needed changes for my blogmistresses.
Additionally, Anne Laurie Damnit, Mistermix, Tom, ABL, Ed, and everyone else, please email bjrebuild and include the email address you want on the website.
And if someone wants to deal with the links and find out which ones don’t work, Godspeed.
Need new site Ombudsman.
The under on “ombudsman crack” wins.
In checking the links, I noticed a category called “blogs we both read”. And of course you only have links from John and Tim.
For the broken links, use the w3c link checker.
Problem is, a lot of those links aren’t broken, they’re just no longer updated.
I poked through them and sent a list to the rebuild addy, so hopefully that helps.
I want all of my comments modified by a “pithy and erudite” program before they get posted.
a pissy and rude e-date is all that we have available for reservation at this time, will that be cash, credit, or debit?
What does a site rebuild mean? Will it look different?
It means that the site will still crash, it will just do so with aplomb.
@cathyx: They are replacing the hamster wheels that power
Cole’s brainthe blog.
Sorry, but “pithy and erudite” will not be available. Would the default “snarky and obnoxious” filter work for you. No? Too bad.

The site update means that FYWP will find completely new and original ways of ruining things. But don’t worry! All of your old favorite FYWP favorites, like banning words that are common in political discussions, will still be there.
I look forward to the rebuild, John. My only request is that if we’re getting an ombudsman, I’m holding out for DougJ. He’s the only one with experience with omsbudding around here and I am sure he can outshine Andy Alexander and Deb Howell.
Meanwhile, is it wrong to show some spectacular cleavage at my John’s client’s party tomorrow night? He told me to dress to impress and I’ve always been told that mine is impressive. Perhaps DougJ should weigh in on this important issue. Sort of like an audition, if you will.
Hey, I work hard at being snaky and particularly hard at being obnoxious. No heathen software is gonna’ take that away from me.
I sometimes come here just to use the blogroll, but I don’t know if little silly blogroll “complaints” are apropos to a site rebuild/upgrade. So! I’ll ask in a comment, so I’m not shamed out of existence.
It’s great that they’re basically alphabetized. But the /the’s/… County Fair is not “The” County Fair. It’s not called that. so.
Not to bitch, of course. I come here for the content and comments. And to bitch, of course, but not about the site. Somebody smart could edit the blogroll, and it would look like Cole cares. I nominate Anne Laurie. Thanks, AL.
Just so long as you skip all of the “troll” filters. And be very careful not to run the Pie filter on any of your posts.
iamtrex hasn’t posted in almost a year. Damn he was funny.
Ooh! Ooh! If DougJ becomes ombudsman, can we have regular on-line discussions–say, Tuesday around noon–where we troll in with fake/snarky questions with which he can embarrass himself and the blog? ‘Cause that would be cool.
Just hope site is running smoothly by December 7th and you can relax and play the new WoW cataclysm. I have been on the beta for months and it is really something!
