Site Updates: Some reorganisation

Tuesday 25 September 2012, 5.38am HKT


WHAT’S NEW

Greetings, Programs!

The Naked Listener’s Weblog has made some new and improved improvements for your enjoyment and general hilarity:—

HEADER IMAGE

Picture (of another picture) of my (late) pet hamster replaces smiling girl’s eyes. If you want the girl back, let me know. Originally I wanted to have this header image but the damn thing didn’t fit:—

Click image for larger picture

I’ve also made the header titles clickable, so clicking the titles returns you to the front page.

I promise I’ll behave in a much more disciplined way and put in extra effort to do something about using THAT “Riders in a Shitstorm” image as the header.

.

CATEGORIES

Previous posting categories were just going into overdrive and getting totally out of hand. I’ve rationalised them into something more sensible (at least to me):—

admin
Site updates, administrator’s announcements, corrections, etc. Boring stuff like this advisory.

beats
Not assigned to any type of story yet.

downloads
Any post containing a download link from this site gets this extra category.

friends
Guestposts (incoming and outgoing) and crossposts.

index
At the end of every month, I post a recap of all stories published. This is the category for those posts.

lifehacks
Lifehacks, aides-memoires, checklists, factoids, guides, how-to’s, infographics, lists, mnemonics, moda operandis, workarounds, etc.

passworded
Private posts protected by a password. I don’t like passworded posts, but sometimes it IS necessary for me to state things either (a) for specific individuals or (b) for the record (albeit privately). Nosey parkers who want to read them need to contact me for a password.

pictures
Picture posts and WTF pictures that I have the misfortune to come across.

random words
The default posting category: single stories, asides, memoriams, notes, opinions, reminiscences, sidebars, thoughts, WTF, etc — a hopeless categorisation if there ever was one.

readme
Read all about me: catering to my immense, shameless and shamelessly immense egotism, these are the posts you should look for. A perfect place to get yourself a headache.

stories
Multi-part and (overlong) major features, stories, roundups, reviews and special series.

uncategorised
Wonder no more: means what it says — lacking a category.

Exactly one dozen categories. Perfect.

Thanks all.
