General Thoughts

Some Site Upgrades For The Upcoming 2016 New Year

pisces man personality open

For all the regular visitors you may be wondering that things look a little different. I figured why not update the site as many times there were a lot of things on the backend that was rather time consuming. I also noticed that apparently a lot of you use mobile devices to browse this page too where I didn’t really consider that when I placed everything up. So hopefully that will make the browsing experience better. Was going to make this the New years task but thought my plate may be full so better to take care if it as much as possible now.

I am still tinkering with all the settings so please bar with me. I think I am going to have to take some new photos as the old ones don’t seem to be the ideal size proportions for the new layout. I do have a lot more options to use now too, so feel free to let me know if there is anything you would like me to change. Example, I know the font is a little different. Is it better or worse than before?

Hopefully you all like it better too.

  • Hi Alan.. Happy New Year.. Nice to see good changes on your site.. On new year eve when I first opened your site I could not recognise it at first, the pictures, the fonts and colours, everything was changed. Then I realised it was kind of a new year’s gift from you to us, loved it really..but Alan I don’t like the tilted big font that you used for the “Questions ” that are asked, I think it feels a bit uneasy to read it, a bit too big font giving weird idea all about it. But when i read your answers in same font, it give me sense of satisfaction and calmness again.. I felt like i was reading a nice book as it has same font size almost..?…

  • Happy New Year Flower! 😀

    Yes, this was like a new year gift to you all I felt. Errr, I guess you read me like a book now…..you all know me too well.

    Thank you for letting me know about the font. I actually don’t like the size of it and all too and have been trying to tinker with it. Do not fear, I am on it! At least that confirms I am not the only one that thinks it is too big and all. For the quotes I think this font design was meant for like newspapers when they want to highlight a key quote from an article. So don’t worry, I am trying to change it.

    Thank you for your feedback. 🙂

  • You always welcome Alan.. Thanks to you for doing all these efforts to make our lives easier, as I know that you only have our best interests in your heart. Hey Alan one thing I really liked about your new changes is the ” Recent comments ” portion. Wow that’s really helping.. I mean like i had to literally go through all your pages to find out if you had answered more questions in past posts. But now you made it all so easy to track down your comments. Thank you ????

  • Oh, that’s a little odd. That recent comment portion was on the old design too. Although, that is another reason I updated it as it seems like so many people are using mobile and that old design wasn’t the best for it.

    I did change the font size for the questions. How is that now?

  • Alan the font that you are using for Questions looks cute now with normal or small font size, the colour blue is cool too , but my eyes feast on the simple font that you use for your Answers.. I simply love that , haha. I’m sorry if i hadn’t noticed the Recent comments portion before or maybe it was not available on mobile as you said.. Because I would have noticed it if it was there as I closely scrutinise all ur site to see if I have left anything unread.. Every night before I sleep and every morning when i open my eyes i check your site if you have answered any new questions. Your site has become like favourite book of mine and many other fans of yours. Respect and gratitude to you Alan!?????

  • I am still always surprised at how many emoticons and emojis you ladies use……like I didn’t even know you could post all these different types….. Always makes it an interesting surprise.

  • Alan , I have a suggestion if you don’t mind. Why don’t you put a ‘Like’ button at end of your each post or answer that you give? That way we will be able to show how much we found your shared information useful or likeable. Im sure that their are lots of readers who follow your posts and want to give feedback too.

    0
  • Oh, hmmm. I am not sure how I can do that technically in an easy way at the moment. I see one possible solution but that would require account registrations where people will have like their own registered username ID on the site. How would you feel about that as an example?

  • Unless it doesn’t become a social website like Facebook where we get to chat with each other and make new friends too… But why not? I have seen sites where people log in with their id and password and share there ideas on different topics. Although I would still have liked it the way YouTube is, where you can Like a video without your ids obvious to other viewers. I would like to see that ?thumbs up sign option on your site someday ! ?

    0
  • Sorry, to correct my sentence, like in ‘Youtube’ where others can’t see the ids or names of people who Liked the video.

  • When is your birthday Alan? Im sure you won’t want to share it as its a personal info.. But we all as your fans would love to know your special day ..!?

    0
  • Got it… But I won’t wish you on that day because I realise that this is not a social website or something. We are here to learn from you only. But still Happy birthday in advance!?

  • ???Happy Birthday to you in advance, Alan! ???
    Roses for your kind dedication to us readers. Your birthday is closer to the Aries zodiac! Maybe that explains your competitive edge. His birthday is coming up in a few days but I am so not going to wish him! ?

  • Thank you all. ? Just a general note, don’t worry too much about general socializing stuff. I never intended this to be like a classroom environment. I did start this site to help educate and have fun too. Example, if you all feel an “off topic” type of section would be good for whatever feel free to let me know and why.

    If anything it’s more about just finding the best ways to manage and provide things within my means and capabilities. Treat this more like an open garden where you have the ability to grow or blossom things to make it better. ??

  • Speaking of off topic section… Apart from your website, another one of my favourite to-go website is Thought Catalog. No idea have you came across it before, where “writers” from all around the world contribute their innermost thoughts and feelings and getting their work “published”. Many entries I read there resonate so well with me and so true that it is kinda piercing. How do you find it Alan?

  • I have never seen that site before. Oh my, first article I clicked on had a naked lady…..Looks like most of the trending articles are relationship based too. Very “unfiltered” is the word I would use so far based on the stuff I see. Can see how it would be a good way to learn in general as seeing people “unfiltered” is usually how I learn.

    0
  • Haha… That’s funny about the picture you mentioned. Must have made a split second of bad impression probably! But it makes me wonder which article did you clicked on. ?
    Glad that you find it somehow useful to learn more about people… Can’t wait to see your writing being published there! ?

  • Alan.. Not flattering you.. But there is no site like yours about pisces man in whole network.. 6 years I have practically digged every website of net.. I found no help regarding confusion i had about my pisces man… You are the only authentic site so far I found.. Kindly start working on producing a book, even if it takes 10 years to accomplish it!!????

  • It was the first article listed titled “5 Ridiculous Things Women Need To Stop Stressing Over.” Not sure if I would ever write stuff there specifically. It says things like “you grant us a non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free license to use, publish, reproduce, modify, adapt, license, sublicense, distribute, sell, perform, translate, and display the Content.” Sounds kind of scary on a surface level.

  • Thank you. 😀 Still researching the book stuff. Might be talking to an author this month just to see again if it is feasible as this stuff is way over my head logistically atm.

    Yes, it doesn’t sounds good. I pictured the worst would be someone else using your work refurbrished as theirs for profits. Might defeat your purpose of wanting to share and help… Initially thought it would be a good medium for you to broadcast your flair and gradually ways to come up with your own title. Sorry that I couldn’t be of much assistance on the mundane and technicalities of books production. Hope you reap useful information during your meetup with the author. Keep going and never give up! ?

  • If you all ever wanted to push for certain information to reach more people then the only real simple and straight forward way I know of is to share the site in general. Basically, it will grow or broadcast as you say to however everyone wants it to spread. Sticking with theme of a fish, I am simply going where the river directs me.

  • Thanks Alan for the wonderful new change… Absolutely loved it, after a little bit of difficulty I succeeded in registeration. Actually it does not work when we use our same email address, it shows that its already been taken. So when i tried a new email address it worked. Now i can like all your comments and posts easily??

    0
  • You might have confirmed my theory as to why you didn’t get the e-mail like the other person mentioned as I see that you did register too. So as a test if you can too I told the application to manually send the first one you registered for the e-mail again. Please let me know if you received it. That way you can use the same one you were using before too.

  • Yes Alan i just checked out my email now, i did get notifications twice from your site about confirming my account. But as I didn’t know of the emails so i registered on new email address. It’s alright for me, as its working for me too.

  • Okay, great. 😀 Let me know if you want to switch because the one you are using now is like an odd spelling since the actual one is currently reserved for activation when you first registered. I should be able to change this new one to the old one if it’s preferable.

  • Ok Alan i would like to switch to my older id. How can i do that? And what should i then do with the new one? Kindly guide me ?

    0
  • Alright, the first thing you need to do is click on the confirmation that was sent to your old account which is the one you just used right now to post your comment. And just to make sure I just manually told the site to send you another confirmation. So one step at a time where you need to finish that first.
