Welcome back to Loveless Society! Seems like it’s been awhile yeah? For those that kept up with us by following the Tumblr and the Facebook, we just want to say thank you and shit. We really wanted to give you guys something special, and by you lot sticking with us as the relaunch took longer than expected, it really made us want to give it our all. To all the new people…welcome. I’m Cupid…and I am drunk as fuck. No worries, this is not a rare occurrence. Have a shot and blend into the crowd as I talk like you have been here the whole time. Fuck it, you came this far so you’re allowed to be an honorary Loveless member for a day.
So…….What you guys think? Pretty fucking snazzy right? I was wondering if the tech department (consisting of Jeff, a stuffed panda bear, a condom wrapper we drew a face on, and this bloke that we pay with beans and toast) could really pull it off. But, I’ll be damned if they didn’t. So why did we change? Because you guys wanted us too. We like to believe that if we listen to what you great people want, then we can actually improve. Fuck being stagnant! Everything that you guys wanted we tried to deliver, so hopefully we did. Let’s take a quick tour and then you lot can go on your merry way.
The first change had to be the format. You have no bloody fucking idea how many people would tell us that the site was hard to read, especially on phones, due to our floating menu getting in the way. Well we have adopted a cleaner look that is more simple, yet loaded with the art you love. Another thing is that the site is “responsive”. Fuck does that mean? Hell I didn’t know either. According to the brain of Psyche, a responsive site realigns itself to what ever device you are using. So it looks a tad different depending on if you are using a smart phone, a tablet, or a computer. Pretty slick, yeah? If you hate that phone view crap then you can just turn it off in your settings. I mean the site is pretty nice to look at.
The next thing is that many people, especially newer ones, really had no direction when they came to the site. Our revamped homepage hopes to address this. Now we have a new little slider thingy on it and guess what that is for? It will show you the newest happenings on Loveless and will also give suggestions on posts you may want to see. The best part about this is that it will change regularly! So no more coming to the site and seeing the same three pictures pass over and over again. The homepage will forever evolve. To people who miss me, Psyche, and Jeff, no worries we are on the homepage too to give a bit of direction to the completely lost.
The Art section replaces the old Collection page and I’ve been told that we will keep adding to the art as the site grows. Pretty nifty indeed. Our new grid approach should also make it easier to pick what art you want to see. This same grid has been adopted by The Society. No more scrolling through tons of pages to see your favorite member. Just click them as they float by. We also made sure to give more room to the interviews by freeing up space. With all of that extra room, we are going to be able to do more with them. Ohh…the innovations are pouring in! We plan to make the most of it.
Moving on, more nifty shit can be seen at the bottom of each page. You got my twitter feed down there. So now…I guess I’ll be stalked more. It’s cool if you want to hear an angry drunk cherub all the time I guess. A feature that has been begged for and finally added though is the subscription tab. Now you can be alerted right when we post to your email (there is a kink still. You can only subscribe if you are on the homepage. Clearly the condom wrapper didn’t do it’s part of the coding well). It’s so exciting that it makes me want to piss…Oh wait…I kind of just have to do that anyway. Also toward the top of pages, there is a share button. If you are on a computer (that includes you fancy Macbook users) then you can actually hold and drag it. Social icons will appear. Drop it onto one of them and it will share the page instantly! Talk about making it easy to talk about your favorite loverboy!
Well I guess I’ll leave you guys to it. It’s beyond great to be back. We still have a few bugs to sort out but it should all be smooth soon. Thanks again for being patient. So much more great stuff coming from us. Like I said…it’s all about growth right? For all of the tomorrows.. I’ll be here for you. Just know that. Til next week, stay Loveless (and yes, there will be an interview! I know you guys are ready for that!).
