Metapost: Administrative notes


Welcome to the 2010 summer skin for Effortless Anthropologie! It's...brighter. And summer-ready. It's part of a blog overhaul I'm working on with the help of a few friends. Please bear with me for the next few days as we settle everything.

A couple of notes:
1. I lost my blogrolls. It happens every time I update the blog and it's truly annoying. I tried to remember everyone but if you were on the blogroll and now find yourself missing, please email me.

2. A new commenting system is coming! This is huge and I could not be more excited. Among other things the new system will allow anyone to add photos to their comments!! This will be great for the Trade Market. I am currently testing 3 systems and when I settle on one I'll give everyone a heads up before EA flips over.

I have a few more announcements coming this week so make sure you check back to say hello. Feedback on the new look is welcome.

I love this, Roxy! It's so much easier to read, especially names in the comment. I had to squint before with the yellow on brown. I feel completely rejuvenated looking at this!

I totally love this new look. The old loaded very slowly in machine and was a bit hard on my eyes, like iclicles starting to form slowly before the background got loaded. This is so cool and easy on my eyes. Thanks

Lauren said...

I love the new look, very anthro-esque :)

Thanks for the support ladies! Anon @ 12:48 - the slow loading is usually due to twitter (for the Anthro tweets in the sidebar) locking up its API. I do hope this lighter new design helps things a bit though. :)

Bronzi said...

Very bright and although at first it threw me, I like it!

Again, Roxy I know this is a labor of love, but thanks for all that you do here!
