So WordPress has been dicking around with their site, as you may have noticed. Things you could find easily have moved to dumb-ass places, there are extra clicks to do simple things, and some functionalities have disappeared altogether. It all comes across as the brainchild of an overly-caffeinated group of programmers who really, really wanted to get this new look live and active but didn’t actually finish the job before they did so. So even now there are changes to the changes, as they muck around. I wish they’d just put things back to the way it was, when we knew it worked.
Anyway, clicking around trying to find something useful recently, I discovered that there is a Trophy Case, I assume all your blogs have this. In this page are awards for blogging milestones that WP has apparently programmed our blogs to track. Was this always here? I never saw it before, if it was. I was fine with that. If it’s new, it’s a frippery coming at the expense of other changes that need to be made in order to undo all this recent mucking around and put things back the way they were.
Some of the “trophies” in the KMA case, most recently, have included:
1000 Posts (2014-07-27)
50 Follows (2014-08-18)
1000 Likes (2014-09-11)
1337 Likes (2014-10-24)
I’m not sure of the significance of 1337 Likes. Certainly not a round number.
So… This is fairly useless information, but the numbers geek in me was momentarily distracted by it. Now I’m back to finding what I want in the New Look WP. If I’m not back in a couple of days, send out a search party. Tell them to bring sandwiches, and whiskey. Lots and lots of whiskey.
