Best Laid Plans – Anime Blog 3.0 News

Hey everyone!  Just a quick posts because my plans for my new blog have changed somewhat. ^_^; I had planned to flip the switch in a couple of weeks after revealing the Beta version of the new blog. Unfortunately, I’ve discovered that if anyone makes new comments on the Blogger blog, I’d have to manually migrate them over, which is more work than I want to do.

So, I’m going to be flipping the switch tomorrow, if all goes according to plan. Anyone linking to will simply be automatically redirected to the new blog. If I’ve done everything properly, then whatever page you tried to access on the old blog will go immediately to that same page on the new blog.

This will mean that the new blog will still be in a Beta form, which means that there are nearly 3000 posts I have to go through and tweak images as well as set a featured image for each post. The newest ones will be corrected first, but I’ll move my way back slowly. ^_^

In addition to updating the various post images, my brother is working on a new background image, which hopefully will me a nifty use of my Junpei-kun screenshot from Those Who Hunt Elves 2 way back in the day.

Oh, and if you see a red square at the bottom left of the new blog, or a red rectangle in the upper left, don’t worry about that. ^_^

    1- Hahahahaha! That vegetables vídeo was super funny! lol What anime is that?

    2- Now, regarding the new interface: it was incredibly good! It saves a lot of screen space, and time to look for the desired post. I only wish you kept the same background image. I’ll miss Chi-chan, but I absolutely cannot stand the b%$# Sakura!

    (1) Dai Mahou Touge, aka: Magical Witch Punie-chan

    (2) Junpei-kun will be replacing Sakura. ^_^

    Noooo! I don’t like change! I’m used to the Blogspot layout, the green color, and Chii. It’s like Youtube all over again! :p

    Oh well. Anywho, have a Merry Christmas, Astro.

      Heh! ^_^;;;; Sorry about that. For me, the move is positive and I have a lot more control since it is on my domain and off Google.

      Anyway, Merry Christmas to you as well. ^_^

    Smeg! Because my last three posts here were migrated by Blogger, the 301 redirect sends them to the home page. Oh well. 3 out of nearly 3000 ain’t bad. ^_^;

    Gee, nice text formatting you have there:

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      That should only be a temporary effect as the site loads. IF the site is still trying to load something (say the blog counter script), then it will be stuck like that for 60 seconds (or less) before clearing up.

      That being said, is this how the site always is for you? So far, none of us are seeing any problems and the site is loading normally.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Wait…I see you have script blocker active for the site. IF it is blocking the domain, you might be blocking the element that causes featured posts to display properly (which is what those extra images are from).

      • AstroNerdBoy says:

        Confirmed. I had one of the guys check it out on a PC with NoScript installed. You are blocking, which is preventing the flipper from working. Once you allow the domain through, the image problem you see will be corrected.
