And welcome to manyatruenerd’s new homepage. Or, to be precise, our old homepage with a lovely new coat of paint, some additional bridge ballast, and plenty of Gs.
More importantly, there are occasions when I have thoughts. Specifically, ones which neither fit into 140 characters, nor deserve to have their own dedicated video. Sometimes I might want to discuss a game I’ve played in a bit more detail. Maybe I want to give my view on a YouTube issue, or a controversy, or some other bit of internet chicanery I haven’t dreamt up yet. And rather than spamming the Twitter feeds of those unlucky enough to follow me with 20 tweets in a row, it would be rather useful to have a site where I can write that sort of thing down. As a result, on occasion, there may well be something you might generously describe as an ‘article’ or a ‘review’ here.
It’s also just nice to be actually doing something with the site, as anybody who visited it months or years ago may recall it used to be a very different sort of thing, but if you’re interested in the history, maybe have a look at the About page.
Other than that, it’s a good place to highlight those one-off videos you might well have missed which I’m particularly proud of, discuss how you can support Many A True Nerd if that’s something you’d like to do, or just generally give you a nice warm fuzzy feeling from visiting my website.
But in the meantime, ladies and gentlemen, I’ve been Jon, this has been Many A True Nerd, and this has been our new homepage. Thank you very much, and goodbye.
Love you Jon!
You now must end every post in the same way now.
Oh goodness, it looks so strange in print, but yes, the intro and outro are needed in every post from now on.
I didn’t even know you already had a website. Sweet.
You’re not allowed to have thoughts-you’re supposed to making videos 😉
Glad to see the site up and running. Keep up the good work.
Nice to see the new site. The old one was indeed very confusing so i didn’t quite bother going there after i saw it somewhere in the summer of 2014. I absolutely loved the “about us” post. I’ve been here long enough to have seen Jon’s face in videos so it’s very nice to see this channel grow and at the same time it manages to retain the same ‘ambiance’ (by lack of a better word). Channels tend to lose that when they grow and I’d be really sad if this were to happen to MATN. Luckily we have Jon, that magnificent bastard 🙂
Also, since a lot of people asked if u could upload the save file from yesterday’s stream maybe u can post it somewhere on the site so people give it a look? Coz atm it’s not really visible, being buried in the video info section.
Yay for the new site layout! I didn’t know Claire had a channel until she mentioned it in the livestream and I came here looking for a link, then I noticed a small bug:
On the link /jon-says-stuff/, this full post is visible, and above it are the date, “general”, and “8 comments”. However, the text “8 comments” is not clickable, whereas “general” is. I was very confused as to whether these comments actually existed, and how I could read them. Eventually, I figured out I can read them from 2017/04/03/good-afternoon/ , where that text *is* clickable, but I am not quite sure how I figured that out or how I got there.
It would be helpful to have the “8 comments” as a link on the main blog page, and it would take you to /date/title/#comments, which jumps you to the comments on the blog post’s page.
One more small thing: I originally tried to submit this form with full links, and it was rejected, saying I can’t insert URLs, and when I hit back, the form fields were not populated with my original comment, so I had to type up a roughly equivalent one. That one feels harder to fix unless you know anything about web development, but after the discussion on Gs… well… it’s fine. It’s…. fine.
Not only did I actively want to read comments on the internet, I subscribed to new posts, and therefore more email, via “notify me by email”. The apocalypse is already here…
You are the best! Can’t wait to read more posts 🙂
Is the only way to subscribe to new posts by posting a comment and checking the box?
