Trip to the past

As my old viewers may have noticed (if you have not noticed it, I really hope you are a blind user) that Tweaked for your Pleasure has “downgraded” back to the original theme used during 2007 to – 2010 or was it 2009, I can not remember anymore.

Anyhow as much as this is a delight to a few of you, I suppose I best take a few minutes to post about why this has happened and the future or whatever I am going to type about and you are going to read anyway, even if you do not enjoy these types of posts.

Dating back many years which is higher than my viewers average IQ, a friend of mine called Adam Wright created his own little Dr Who show which ultimately gave birth to what he calls “Wrights Productions”.

Skipping loads of history no one cares about, he created the first website using Ellisfamily.TK fansite and then created the first Wrights Productions website using HTML, MkPortal, e107, WordPress and then TFYP.Network.

Well thing is, it did not work out well. Before merging back, Wrights Productions had it’s own little community which got killed off during the merge and then my community that did not care so much about his videos. Sure, there was some issues as people brought up that maybe Wrights Productions should have been renamed as TFYP.Productions to fit in but it was not his fault.

Two main issues was both me and Tweaked for your Pleasure. No matter how much I try to sugar coat it, this site will always be a place for me to rant and that is all. The second was the lack of content from myself to Wrights Productions such as Playing Games with Snat.

Anyway back to the theme. Ricko Mann kindly made me a new theme which was simply titled as “TFYP” and kindly developed it for both the English and Hebrew versions of this website. When Wrights Productions merged with Tweaked for your Pleasure to form “TFYP.Network” in a very loose sense that Adam adapted the TFYP theme.

However what happened is his whole site become dependent on it such as his page layouts and all that and neither me, Adam or Ricko had time to redesign a unique theme for Wrights Productions and one condition I had with the spilt was that both sites looked different to each other.

So in the interest of making sure this happened, to the delight to a few viewers, I decided to change back to the old theme and re-add the features I needed from the newer one to this one. Wrights Productions then kept the Hebrew version of the theme and applied the English changes to recreate their blue layout.

So there you go, that was the divorce settlement and hopefully Wrights Productions re-gain it’s little community in one time. That said, I should also talk about Just a Community. I closed it down for two reasons which were:

  • Lack of people posting / replying.
  • TFYP.Network disbanding.

When I closed it down that a few people contacted me about it. I would not mind giving Just a Community another go in the future but if so, it would be it’s own site ran by someone else while I just give input. If you are willing to help out – let me know by using this pretty form.

To the people who did enjoy Wrights Productions, you can still catch their videos at Wrights Productions or by following them on their YouTube channel by clicking here. Snat’s vBlog, Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure and Playing Games with Snat future will be published in the future but soon an archive will be up on the video page which link I have yet to figure out where to put it.

      You are correct that the site did not work in Internet Explorer sometimes but honestly that only happened in Internet Explorer 6 or below. 7 used to have a minor error, but would have got around to fixing it.

      Playing Games with Snat is still planned to be released.

    lol @ the blind user remark..

    It is not downgraded!! This theme is so much better/prettier than the one you just removed!! And it definitely delights me!

    It lets you concentrate on what is really important on this site – the articles – and not distract/annoys you with colour clashes… this is much more easy on the eye.

    Great! I'm really happy 😀 (and I know exactly what your reply will be to this one.. lol)

      Yes, the site itself is "downgraded", it's going backwards. Regardless if you liked the theme or not, I did but at least the theme itself is not going to waste and being used on Wrights Productions.

      Do not get so used to it though, I am looking to re-designing this.

        They're welcome to it 😀 I have no plans of visiting that site so makes no difference to me what theme they use…

        lol…….. as I said, I knew you were gonna say this, but hey, you can't do any worse than the previous theme was 😉 It was awful!!

        @Luke,

        While she has commented on the fact it was the colours and such, I do get the feeling she refused to even try and accept it due to the fact Ricko did it.

        Wish I was wrong though.

        @Wild Cat,

        and what wrong with wright productions. popmanw made videos for his and others enjoyment and when he and snat worked together things changed on this site.

        change happens get used to it.

        i have yet to see even 1 reason to hate his videos other then content bad or anything. infact i bet you have not even watched one outside of snats videos.

        @Wild Cat,

        Not visit the site for what reasons though. Do not like the content or some biased view towards Adam ?

        Would be nice to hear the reason – it helps to improve things.

        @Wild Cat,

        I swear you're here just to start a flame war again. Ever since our "incident" on the old JAC, you've come back time and time again to leave your stuck-up, bullshit comments.

        I created the old theme on request. It wasn't great, but it did the job and Snat was pleased with it. That's the main thing. I wasn't paid to do it, nor was it a trade of favours, I just invested some time to put together a new design as per Snat's request.

        Then you came along and started spouting your bullshit. Don't get me wrong, feedback is important and it's undoubtedly an integral part of my line of work. I receive positive remarks as well as criticism for work I have produced on a day to day basis, and I act on it accordingly. But what you said could barely pass as "feedback" – you weren't even capable of suggesting how the theme should have looked instead, so there was nothing constructive about it.

        Like I said, you just started spouting your bullshit. And now you're doing it again. If I was Snat, I'd get rid of you for good because I honestly can't remember a single occasion on which you actually contributed anything worth a crap.

        TL;DR: get fucked.

        Yours sincerely,

        Ricko97

      @Arjen,

      Well, honestly it worked out better for us both. At least Adam can focus on getting hits again to his videos and once he does then he can rebuild a community (I will still be helping him to do that bit).

      And on my side of things, you get to see pretty fat stick men pictures of me 😉

    Well I think the theme was very good and the only issue I had was the way how objects wern't alligned properly, but I'm sure that was solely to do with the bad browser I was using and not the theme itself 🙂

        @PointMan,

        Did they appear under the main content or something ?

        I know that was an issue of my actual doing and not Ricko's design and was meaning to get around to fixing that at one point.

      2. PointMan

        @Snat, Basically the main content area was placed underneath the archive list leaving a huge gap in the middle. I always thought it was something to do with IE and not the theme.

      3. Snat Post author

        @PointMan,

        Ya, that one was my bad. It was due to an edit I made. People most biggest problem with the theme was that it did not work in Internet Explorer.

        This problem never happened on Snat.co.il as I simply never copied the changes over.

  3. Wild Cat

    Nothing to do with who made the design actually, I didn't like it, the colors clashed, it was hurting my eyes, in regards of the "Write productions", I don't like the content so I have no reason to ever go there…… so makes no difference to me what the design of that site is….

    Hope I cleared up any confusion ya all seem to have……

      @Wild Cat,

      Fair enough, but surely you can see it from the other side of the table. Everything Ricko or Adam has done has always been spoken badly from you for whichever reason.

      No one here wants to have a go, but surely you can see their point.

        No one here really want to moan at each other.

        I was just saying that to Ricko, why is it only flame wars get attention on here -_-.

      2. Wild Cat

        @Snat,

        I was not flaming, I was just expressing my opinion, you told me to post it 🙁 and everyone jumped on my throat for no reason at all…..

        oh well…. you wanted activity, at least you had that 😉

    Hi all,

    I might as well join in, for old times sake 🙂

    I do apologise if Wrights Productions being part of TFYP caused any issues. But I can assure you, that myself and Snat did it with the best interested at heart. I really enjoyed my time being part of TFYP (again, as it was the 2nd time), and when myself and Snat worked together on shows I think it went to new heights.

    WP is still around, with no page content. It just links to videos and serves as a community forum. Our main medium to distribute video is now done though our youtube channel. I will still pop in and out of this website, and myself and snat have projects to finish off.

    Respect 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 – Adam W

      @Popmanw,

      Only issue it caused was getting the theme 😉

      Anyway, my shows will be carrying on – just without Adam editing anything so do not expect things to actually come out beyond Playing Games with Snat – FFVI.
