November / December: Top Commenters & Other News

changes0192-01

We finally got Livefyre fully implemented (they finished importing all our old comments on December 31st), so let’s see how comment traffic picks up as we move through 2013 (we’re going to be very, very patient). I know a number of you guys have pointed out the lack of support for images in the comments, but after fooling around with things a bit, we’re learning that it’s very random. It seems to automatically post images from certain image hosts, while just posting links from others. If any of you figure it out, let us know & we’ll spread the news. Videos from YouTube, on the other hand, show up perfectly fine when you paste the link to the video in the comment.

Aside from that, we’re currently in search for a capable WordPress developer to implement a few more tweaks, so if you have any major issues, please sound off below (or contact us directly) and we’ll definitely add that to the list of fixes.

CHANGES:
Besides renaming the site back to Bastardly.com & scraping the current site & going back to the old site, what’s the #1 thing we should concentrate on when doing updates? Also, does anybody use that big featured box at the top w/ the dates? We’re thinking about replacing the tabs with popular categories or possibly even scrapping it all together. And finally, what does the Catwalks section need in order to generate more love?

Top Commenters
Just so that more people can get a slice of the pie, we’re going to choose top five people from the previous month as opposed to just three. All winners will get the same prize b/c you’re all equally special (wink) and the biggest change of all is that a single person can only win for two consecutive months, after which they gotta sit out for a month. Hope that makes sense.

With that in hand, let’s go over our November & December winners (apologies for the delay):

November (in no particular order):
Leni
Skilligan
Mundo
BryanZee
Spanglylovesheels

December (in no particular order):
Mundo
Skilligan
Cowbulls
Bozz
BryanZee

Again, a big thank you to everyone else who wastes a few minutes of their day on the site b/c we know there are plenty of other options & thanks especially to all you winners. If your name is listed above, please contact us & we’ll email you your $20 Ebay certificate.

Just sent you and email Moe. Thanks for thanking us. We feed each other's addiction to celebrity and snark. LOL.

Another thing that is weird is frequently the first page says no comments have been made when Skilligan has already provided his thoughts.

Lose the big box. It is highly annoying and I hate seeing pics of that hateful child killer every time I look at this site on my computer.

I don't know bout yall, but I never use that big feature at the top, getting rid of it will probably will make the site load faster too cause there will be less picture to load. Also THANKS, MOE! hahahaha....

Hey Moe, thanks for picking me. I have never won anything before! I am getting the vapors...... I would like to thank the Lord Jesus and my agent, and my wonderful family and all the fans.... (music swells in the background)


Btw..how do I contact you?

One thing that I find is weird is how the postings are prioritized. Newer postings are not always at the top. Sometimes I only find a recent posting because someone commented on it.

Also I like the fact that theres no particular order, would be awkward if I posted more than Skilligan.

@GrgeCdnBastard Since the front page only has like 10 posts, we make a few popular posts sticky so that they stay visible a little longer when the site is getting flooded with new posts.

We definitely need to think of a work around.

Thanks, Moe.


The gift card isn't tied to that email address I sent from right? Thats just a throw-away email. Hopefully I can use it with my paypal thats tied to a different addy.

Doubt it, but I've never received a ebay gift card before, so I can't say for sure...
