No More Anonymous Commenting, Other News

Let us address the dancing tutu-wearing giant wing-ed pink elephant in the room first: I was gone for a long time. It's complicated. No wait a minute, it's not complicated at all; I was away at Basic Training. I joined the National Guard. I belong to the government now. Literally. But that's all I can tell you, the rest is classified. Ha ha! But anyway, I'm back now so let's move on.

Yeah, anonymous commenting. It didn't work. Over the lifetime of our site there were maybe five anonymous comments posted of any value. Look, on principal alone I thought it was worth having that option around but the barrage of spam we got made it not worth the trouble. I'm sorry. It's a shame because on my other sites I never had a problem with this. But, it's just not worth it. I'm sorry.

Speaking of other websites did you know MY STADY was originally hosted on LiveJournal? It's no longer maintained but you can still check it out. I'm in the process of copying those posts over. I know Blogger has an import feature but when you go that route your posts won't archive properly. There's a bug where entries created with an older date are ignored by the search engine. So to avoid that I have to manually copy/paste. I'm checking the entries for dead links and bad markup. A lot of the posts have been copied over with enhancements. For example, my Destiny of the Shrine Maiden recaps only had screenshots originally. I've always wanted to include more video and now I can! It's a lot of work but I'm proud of the end result and it's always what I originally had in mind anyway. So yeah, blog posts: remastered!

Alright, so that's all I can think of addressing for the moment. Expect updates to be a lot more frequent. It's good to be back!
