Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Feb 022018
 

Just a quick blog post today (partly because it’s my birthday).

After the site went down in January, a few pieces never quite recovered. For example, we lost the collapsing archives that used to be in the sidebar, the list of similar content at the end of each post, and the lightbox effect for images.

It was also brought to my attention that the site design itself could be considered outdated.

So since I’ll have to make some changes anyway because of the first issue, I’ve been considering a redesign. But what sort of site design is best? Since you’re the ones who will be reading it, I’d like your feedback.

Which do you prefer?

  1. Keep this design, with the blog post front and center.
  2. Switch to a design that shows many recent blog posts at once on the front page, like the design for my Kingdom Hearts fan site, KH Theories.
  3. Switch to a static front page with links to different types of content.
  4. Go with a hybrid that has a static front page and recent posts, like the current design for my new game site, Lovecraft Video Games.
  5. You have a different idea (let me know what it is in the comments).

  1. …You have the same birthday as Kamek? <_<;

    Happy birthday!

    Don't change your layout, because then we can share in having outdated site designs.

  2. Hi Samantha,

    What is your idea.. number 5? What platforming or content management system is your site running on?

  3. Happy birthday! 🙂

    I like it how it is, this is what I’m used to now.
