and today, on wordpress.com

Gee, a new green and blue theme. That will provide a great alternative to the existing blue, green, black, gray and occasional-maroon-or-orange-accent themes. Somebody needs to get you guys a color wheel and cover the “cool” part of it with masking tape.

Yeah, what they said.

We can buy extra filespace now. I don’t know what they’ve done on the backend, but whatever it was appears to have had the side effect of fixing my thumbnails (which vanished mysteriously last time they messed with the uploader). Yay. Slightly odd that the post doesn’t mention the amount we have already, but at least we no longer have to scour the FAQ for it, or guess how much space we’re using up.

Following a couple of other critical posts on the .com forums, options apparently got temporarily banned. Mark doesn’t believe him. I’m afraid I do.

Also on options’s blog I work out the main reason why it’s so important to fool visitors into heading for the tags pages . It is so simple, I would feel embarrassed to restate it here.

    wank – you’ve been around the forums here and .org. Apart from spammers, no-one has been banned despite the huge amounts of flak that has been thrown at people, especially Matt.
    What happened was that during the night – when I slept – there was a code change that caused this. Options was not banned – he tried to access the forums when the code was going wrong. It affected others too.
    It’s not a conspiracy – it was a genuine mistake.

    that comment made me laugh my ass off. surprised, as i was, that someone beat you to it. 😉

    i find it odd that they continue to tell the geeky pro-blogger sect to take their business elsewhere, while continuing to upload only the geeky, pro-blogger themes.
