Land Gosnells

Land, Gosnells. Go there, buy now. Testing a new theme, which supposedly allows bigger pictures. To test it here is something from Bohemian Carnivale from the Gozzie region. Does it work? Are the pics bigger?

    the text is bigger, i think the pics are bigger.

    what’s with the collage in the background? i think i preferred the white space.


  2. shazza says:

    See I didn’t even post on the right thread.

    Worst layout, worst background, worst serif. Keep the worst wondertrain rolling along LA! My eyes hurt!


  4. rolly says:

    Yeh, TLA I like the bigger pix.
    It’ll mean that some of the more woeful examples of shutter clicking that pass for “photography”on this site might be a little less difficult to determine.
    The clutter down each side is a bit of a distraction.
    I suggest that you either eliminate it or make it a bit more cohesive.

    bigger text box and pics are good – the imovable Patti Chong is freaking me out a bit


  6. Ljuke says:

    You lot sound like a right bunch of Facebookers. Can we find 1,000,000 people who want TWOP changed back (or else we are going to another site about how crap Perth is).


  7. B.T. says:

    Meet the new TWOP, same as teh old TWOP…


  8. skink says:

    I was going to comment that the collage is all arses and Patti, but then I realised that it is therefore a pretty accurate representation of Twop content

    I agree with Shazza’ and Mez that Patti peering from the corner is offputting, unless that swan is going to peck her eyes out. she seems to be puckering up to kiss that arse.

    pics are better – but bigger serif text is horrible

    You get used to anything eventually.


  10. Snuff says:

    Not that it matters, TLA, but the new theme’s all over the shop for me. The pics (and text) do seem a bit bigger, although I’m only getting about 2mm of the aforementioned collage around the edges. My browsers are too tweaked, so I’m getting next to nothing on Firefox, and this bit of a mess on IE. Shou ga nai.


  11. Dylan H. says:

    I sent the pic in and yeah, the new format works alright. The pics are bigger, etc. Don’t know about the font, though.


  12. Bento says:

    I love that we get a little bio of TLA on every post.

    Border collage pic selection leaves a bit to be desired. Patti especially off-putting, but probably deserves a prominent position.

    This ain’t gettin’ any better, even after my third glass of Lachlan Ridge Cab Merlot. I think TLA has been gettin’ some design ideas from here.


  16. vegan says:

    this is hurting my head.


  17. Mez says:

    4 beers later

    actually, the larger print helps but a minor flaw is that I seem to have to scroll back down after I “Post Comment” to review my wit. After 6 this could cause my scrolling finger an injury.

    My eyeballs thank you for deleting the Chong.


  18. Mez says:

    …and art heretic seems to have cast a bold spell…


  19. Bento says:

    Wait – you’re not doing the bold yourself?


  20. vegan says:

    big, bold, able to be read at about 10 metres.

    is it a font for senior citizens?


  21. Snuff says:

    Still nothing on Firefox, but at least the 2mm of collage has disappeared. I guess I’ll just have to shudder fire up IE for TWoP. It’s a pity the main problem of only listing the last 15 comments remains. I wish WordPress had a function where the number of new comments were listed next to the posts. Meh.


    • Snuff says:

      And it doesn’t reload at the comment, and I have to sign in my name and email address again every time. And it’s all goddamn bold. Uggh.


    • I haven’t even looked at it in explorer. Seems just right in firefox. been workin fine all day in FF.


      • Snuff says:

        I’m sure it’s just one of my extensions or Greasemonkey scripts screwing it up, TLA. I’ll sort it out eventually but it’s currently a pain in the arse inconvenient. And turn off that goddamn bold.


  22. Snuff says:

    Where did that comment go ? Uggh. Wake me up when it’s working again.


  23. David Cohen says:

    Holy fuck.

    What fresh hell is this?

    I did not see the Patti thing but I would not have liked it.

    I do not like this either – and I’m only on the first glass of pinot grigio cleanskin.

    Where is the T-shirt shilling??

    This is a disgrace (and an outrage).


  24. Margeryx says:

    It looks ok on my Apple iPad.


  25. shazza says:

    My eyes, ze goggles, ze do nothing.


  26. Natalia Fan #1 says:

    C’mon TLA – admit this as a failed experiment, much like the Wheel, daylight savings, TroyBoy, etc.

  27. Natalia Fan #1 says:

    Sheesh, he thought. How far they’d all come, from sans to serif. But almost a backward step; it brought back memories of the first time he’d stepped on a jellyfish before recoiling, when the now brackish Swan was still good for swimming. Later he’d glory in the destruction of gelatinous tissues; whether jellyfish, or the soft, barely fried fat of a Fremantle breakfast, inevitably followed by gelato. All these memories swam together in his mind, like a North Freo rip bringing driftwood, seaweed, used condoms, together in a tangled skein of parochiality.


  28. Natalia Fan #1 says:

    I like how TLA’s gravatar despotically appears at the bottom of every thread now…


  29. David Cohen says:

    If our comments are being squashed into minuscule boxes then the terrorists have won.

    Did the Anzacs fight Johnny Turk at Gallipoli and stop the Japs at Kokoda so we could have our comments squished by minuscule boxes?



    • Natalia Fan #1 says:

      Funny how your comments aren’t squashed into little boxes, DFOC.

      Politburo win
      Over kulak funny-farm
      Old Trotsky triumphs?


  30. Mez says:

    I’m a fan of new format TLA but dissapointed that the Bold is gone


  31. rolly says:

    I have nothing to say; all my rants have been ranted for me.
    Thank you, gentle people. (Euphemism for excretory alimentary orifices.)
