Default BUTCHFEMMEPLANET: REDECORATING, UPDATES, NEW SHIZZ!

Hey folks-

The Planet is coming up on 10 years old and I am going to be doing a little redecorating and adding a couple of new features.

DON'T PANIC! The changes will not affect the current features of the site like chat or the gallery, I am mainly going to be updating the look of the site, the logo and tagline, and doing some sprucing up to help us have a "fresher" vibe as we head into our 10th year.

I will also be rolling out a new "Member Spotlight" page where we will feature members every 3 months or so...and YES, I already have our first spotlight member picked out and they have agreed to tell us some fun things about themselves!

The Planet also has an Instagram page where I am posting vintage photos of Butches and Femmes, funny Butch-Femme-related memes, and throwback photos of magazines and lesbian pop culture!
Please visit our instagram at: https://www.instagram.com/butchfemmeplanet/


As always, thank each and every one of you for continuing to support the space by showing up and posting! We are literally the *only* active website on the net right now that has a forum, chat, and galleries specifically geared toward Butch, Femme, and Trans folks. YOU ALL are the folks who make this place possible.

On a personal note, it has been both one of the biggest learning experiences and the greatest joys of my life to have watched the Planet grow and thrive all these years. Being at the helm has given me a bird's eye view into how truly wonderful (and yes, sometimes asshattish) folks can be and I wouldn't trade this experience for anything.
I am still fully committed to keeping the doors open no matter what and look forward to laying down some new rugs and slapping some paint on these old walls.

Much love to you folks!!

Angie

Hey Folks-

I am starting the redecorating process and have added several new avatars to the library.

If you have a FREE account, you now have 16 more choices for avatars. If you have a paid membership, you are free to use these as well or upload your own.

Thank you!
Angie

Happy Monday, Family!


You'll notice some boxes popping up here and there on the front page as I tinker with the modules.

These are a work in progress and are meant as place-holders until I roll-out the new features I'll be adding over the next couple of weeks. This means that if you click on the "coming soon" boxes, there won't be anything there until I'm done with the rollout.

I'll make a formal announcement as each feature becomes available!


I hope you are as excited as I am about sprucing the place up!

Appreciate you all and please pardon the dust!

xoxo,
Angie

Thanks, Medusa! I love all the new avatars, however, I am still "n love" with the "love one with the rainbow Chinese symbol....

Thank you for making this space a safe haven for us all and for being here all these years now! Looking forward to the new features....

Have a greta Monday yourself!

So, what you're saying is... you want us to PM you each and every time a link doesn't do something spectacular! Message received loud and clear!


Kidding!


Sorry... was just having a flashback!

Thanks you, Doll!

I am going to be tweaking it for the next few days for color and sizing and such. I just didn't want to take the site out of commission while I worked on things so you all are going to be stepping over the construction zone for a bit!

I'm glad you like the banner! I hope that most folks do! I cobbled together a bunch of vintage photos representing folks like us and tried to shade them in so they would fit each other.
I will be adding a big center logo in the next few days with our new branding and color scheme.

I appreciate you folks!

xoxo,
Angie

Also folks - This thing is going to be super wonky on mobile devices for a few days.

I'll do my best to get the spacing issues lined out so they are less annoying!!

Thank you for your patience!

Yes, the banner is AWESOME !!! Good job on that !

Thank you !!

Not just you!! Lol! I am writing from my iPhone right now and the aspect ratio is terrible!
I’m exhausted and probably won’t get to fixing it this evening but it will be my first priority tomorrow in between my day job and obsessive newswatching.

I will definitely make sure it expands to the device!

Default quick question re page contrast

Hi Medusa!

Thank you sooo much for all the work you've done and are doing in creating this space!

Question - I'm asking in ignorance, 'cause I'm not sure what's possible (I've never had reason to play around with forum software myself) but is there any chance of it being possible for users to select an option that either makes the page lower-contrast or maybe select the colour of the background upon which text is displayed? I ask because one of the things I noticed many years ago is that for some reason black text on a white background on a PC screen is far harsher on the eyes than the same in a printed book, and changing the background to a pastel tint when possible greatly relieved eyestrain (I know that some folk find text on a light yellow background easier to read, although I can;t recall why; my favoured background is a dull light green).

No probs if this can't be done, just asking in case it can!

Love that banner!

xx
