I've done some long-overdue housekeeping here at Orlando Pinstriped Post. Here are some changes I've made:
Revised, and made more prominent, the site's Community Guidelines:
This addition is the most important. This vital document is list of behaviors, both encouraged and discouraged, and serves as a guide for this community. Please read the guidelines, and do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or concerns; my email address is in the document.
Removed excess from the sidebar:
Now only the essentials are there.
You'll notice a change on the Orlando Pinstriped Post Facebook page as well. Indeed, links to OPP stories won't simply pop up there automatically and impersonally like an RSS feed anymore. I aim to make the Facebook page an extension of the site, not a ditto of it.
These improvements are part of a larger project which will, I hope, make OPP a more vibrant and active community. There are newer, bigger changes to come, about which you'll hear more soon.
Many thanks for your continued readership and support. With any luck, this silly lockout will end fairly soon, and we'll have topics more fun to discuss than the site itself.
