      It’s kinda my default color scheme for the place, & I didn’t want mustard yellow outside what I have in the headers, because that’s very off putting as text. And like I said below, I put up a new post. http://www.thehogsty.com/2018/01/08/pachyderm-kirk/

    It def looks better

  • alex35332

    Okay so I tried adding in a new commenting software, one of the most popular. Lets see if that works better for people. It may have deleted earlier posts but supposedly the Disqus software is the most used by wordpress people.

    Test comment

  • Steve Thomas

    Hi folks – test comment. Alex, need Avatar, help.

    • Alex Zeese

      Read in the comments I’ve got some details down there of what you do.

      • The Hog Sty

        Technical issue – this system seems to be saving the email address of the last commenter for all to see in the comment box. When I pulled this up, it had Squinn’s email address showing. That’s no bueno.

        • Alex Zeese

          If you refresh the page I’ve installed a new comment software to see if it works better, the default stuff seems buggy as hell.

  • Squinns

    Where alll da white women at?

  • Bad_Reputation

    How do I add a profile Pic?

    • Alex Zeese

      I know I had to do it visa vie this wordpress thing called Gravatar https://en.gravatar.com/
      It will ask you for your email you used & to sign in and you can upload a pic.The one thing I would request. No dick pics as avatars if it works.

      • Bad_Reputation

        Ah, I see.

        • Alex Zeese

          I may be working on finding a better commenting software this week too.

  • Dilly Dilly

    • Alex Zeese

      I tried adding some PHP code to the program to see if it gets rid of the “you are posting to often” error it didn’t break the whole website so maybe it will work better now.

      • Ok thanks

        • Alex Zeese

          I will also look for an upgraded comment system from the default one WordPress comes with. I’m open to other ideas obv, not like I’m a full time web designer.

  • Bad_Reputation

    Hey Hey

  • etrod

    Do I really need a Twitter account?

    • No

    • Alex Zeese

      Not for this no, I was just saying if you wanted to write something or get involved you can ask us that way.

  • We want a new post.

    • Alex Zeese

      Okay, since you all know I’m all about democracy, if you want a new post give me a topic I will whip something up.

  • Alex Zeese

    If people actually want to start using this as a comment section for the house of the undying hamster enclave. Obviously it would be welcome. But let us know what kind of stories you would be interested in us doing. Keep in mind it’s just me who manages the site & we don’t have a beat reporter, or a budget, or anything like that.

    • Alex Zeese

      We don’t quite get a new post up every day, I’m not gonna promise that. We do a podcast every week about the skins, and It’s Just Buisness with Slick Rick, 713, & original Hamster Chris Larry is every other week. We do try and get 1-2 stories up each week, though in the off season we’ve slowed down. Steve’s working on a big Bruce Allen vs Scot draft breakdown story right now.

  • Squinns

    Test

    • Squinns

      • Alex Zeese

        Yes it is. Finally.

        • Kelly

      • Squinns

        Ban check!

        • Alex Zeese

          I only have 3 words blocked that may or may not get you ban, I don’t know how that feature works yet.

          The $1,000 is, can I put up with NPI if he starts commenting here?

  • Alex Zeese

    Sorry about the issues with audio before.
